And much like the Star Wars reference in the headline, BioWare represented a young Anakin. He was ambitious, wanting to change the world for the good. Until he met Emperor Arts who, through subtle manipulation, twisted and warped Anakin into a shell of his former self. It was only after the full acquisition did Anakin cease to exist and Darth Vader took his place.

Jim from Saint Paul: I eat mop: meh. not many titles there that I found appealing, interesting or entertaining for any significant length of time.

What kind of games DO fit that bill for you?


He sounds like a Call of Duty fan.

AND Greg Zeschuk is stepping down too.

And so, EA kills another one.

This man may have been responsible for great games in the past, but given what BioWare has become over the past three years or so, I can't say my level of give-a-fark is very high. But, whatever. I wish him the best of luck in his future career choice.

DA2 I was warned about. I bought it anyway and went 'surely not' about the 'recycled maps' and other complaints.

I had prepurchased ME3 and was loving it. I shrugged off the 'haters' griping about the ending.

SWTOR seemed fun. For 20 levels.

I have developed a syphilitic hatred for origin. It is the most ass backward client I've ever used, and couldn't find a successful well programmed menu with both hands and a wad of cash.

They took bf3 and made it a 'subscription' service for DLC they promised a month ago. (though honestly I'm more angry my cheap ass friends won't drop the cash on the DLC).

I'm done with EA unless there is a very compelling reason to get another game by them. Honestly can't explain quickly why I was so disappointed by ME3 and DA2. But thy were enough to make me say no more.

Empty Matchbook: /just glad they made it through the primary ME trilogy
//wondering what's next for the company AND the Doctors


Sequels. SEQUELS. SEQUELS!

Casey Hudson already promised another entry into Mass Effect, plus they announced Dragon Age 3: Inquisition.

I really have no desire to play DA3. The second one just plain sucked and was a pure money grab. Of course they're saying they are listening to fans and addressing complaints, but I don't trust EA to actually listen.

/Project Eternity here we come!
//Also, I really hope Grim Dawn gets released someday
///Borderlands 2 is awesome

obvious troll is obvious. right now obsidian is the only game company consistently putting out worse shiat than bioware

/borderlands 2 IS awesome!!!
//gearbox is my new lord and master


Don't know what you're talking about, Fallout New Vegas was an awesome game, and Neverwinter Nights 2 was pretty decent as well. I distinctly remember enjoying KOTOR 2, so I can't hate them for that, and they are involved in the upcoming South Park RPG. You're entitled to your opinion man, but I think you're the one that's trolling.

jagarr: Electronic Arts somehow managed to kill the best multiplayer game ever made (Ultima Online), so I've been fairly 'meh' about the game destroying mission they've been on since they merc'd Mythic.

Still sucks for Bioware though. Writing was on the wall after TOR Dragon Age II last year.


Fixed for accuracy.

hamdingers: Well I'm sad to hear this, though happy for the docs. Bio may have mistepped of late, but they have still given me some of my favorite games ever. From Baldur's Gate & Kotor to ME & DA ... I've been pretty happy with all of it.


Eh, I like to attribute Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate 2 more to the work of Black Isle, probably because I'm bitter at the direction that Bioware has taken.

/Even though it was delayed until Nov. 30, I'm still excited for Baldur's Gate:Enhanced Edition!

The EA cannibalization process must've been pretty rough this time around for them to quit the industry altogether. Maybe EA's lawyers inserted a non-compete clause, knowing full well the results of their practices. Those guys were responsible for some of my favorite games of all time, right up until they started selling bits of their soul for MS Points.

I care only if he was the one responsible for the abortion that was the ME3 ending.
