Why EA has been dethroned by Activision ...

11:33 PM on 08.15.2007 // William Haley

[Editor's note: This video contains a lot of profanity. If you're at work, take a pass on this one. -- Nick]
 
EA is a terrible company. They rape and pillage franchise after franchise and are basically a disease whose practices have lowered the standards of what passes for an acceptable retail game, much like rap and My Chemical Romance has ruined what is considered "music."
 
In the future, I imagine EA will just send you a box that has "Madden" hastily written on the side in Magic Marker, and a little midget will pop out and punch you in the nuts, then take your wallet. But of course, you won't even get to keep the midget because you will need to pay for a cheat code via Xbox Live that unlocks him somewhere in your neighborhood, and then you have to go look for him, which is going to be really hard because he's a freaking midget. 
 
To all you retarded mongoloids who buy Madden year after year, thank you for helping destroy the game industry and supporting companies like EA. This video is for you. <3

 From PSYK0MANT1S, the creator of the video:

Ok EA... I've been VERY QUIET for a long long time about the quality of your titles. I am quiet no more. Today I got off of work and there was nothing more i wanted to do but to play my new copy of John Madden 2008 Football on my xbox 360. Not even 2 games into my copy of Madden and glitches surface. Even your own in-game replay system helped me document this bullshit.

I'm sorry but I am not going to speak good of EA for the rest of my existance on this earth until I see some serious improvements in your quality standards. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count how many times I've been let down by Electronic Arts titles on PC, XBOX, XBOX360, PSX, and PS2. Let down you ask? Well let's talk about how EA needs to STOP releasing beta builds of their games. EA needs to STOP releasing a game that needs a patch the next day. EA needs to STOP letting us the consumer/gamer pay for a buggy product. EA needs to get their act together and get some REAL Quality Assurance going on.

Let me tell you something EA... My father said something to me a couple years before his death and I've never forgotten it. He said, "If you are not going to put your full ass into your work, then quit now. Spare me the trouble of finding it done half-ass so I can get on with my life."

I am posting this in hopes that I can alert the community of this injustice ONCE AGAIN committed by Electronics Arts to it's consumers. As gamers and consumers we need to stand up to our game makers and demand higher quality and assurance. My 60+ dollars today was spent only to be dissapointed...

 Amen brother.

I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3?

God damn, Bernie Sanders is just killing it with this speech. Hitting basically every point. He even used the word "oligarchy." Probably the first time I've ever heard that word uttered on CNN. I think a lot of people in power are shitting their pants

In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog. Pray this guy is not your husbando, for he is shit.

Just ate a disgusting amount of sugary wonders in a Fat Tuesday blowout. Chocolate (birthday) cake, Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, and some creme brule thing. Satiation by way of eat-'til-you-puke is what Shenanigans says!

By the way, that IGPX collection is a new release. It's the first time the show is available in a complete package, and the first time it's been available in any format in about 10 years. [url]http://amzn.to/20JSMCd[/url]

This is your daily reminder that Taxi Driver is the best movie ever and if you disagree then all I can say is: God, you're square.
