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.

Embedded pictures in Quickposts seem to be broken for me right now.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

Why is every Quickpost now spaced out like poems with random amounts of stanzas that never ever rhyme?

Was anybody else here extremely disappointed by the ending of Assassin's Creed 2?

Just tried Fallout 4 on my PC Via my Cousins steam account and nope, it does not run for me very well. Buying the PS4 version it is!

Am I the only one who has to pull up their sleeves to play competantly at videogames? When my hoodie's sleeves are down I play like a piece of shit but when i pull them up, I have more flexibility.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.
