Yeah, EA still has some decent games
Other devs with rebrand ... and DICE.
The truth.....you speak it!
Warcraft, circa 1994. CnC 1995. Granted Warcraft 2 (much better than the original) was 1996...
EA is not that bad. Apart from activation schemes which aren't all that bad actually (SolidShield is better than their first versions of crappy SecuROM). They do have some pretty darn good games. Dead Space series is one of the better i've played in last few years. Battlefield 3 singleplayer, apart from few bugs, it's a pretty darn good combat game with really brutal graphics. NFS Hot Pursuit 2010 is one of the better NFS's i've played.
none as big as comcast, and not for non-mobile internet connections. The point stands. just because you'll roll over and take something doesn't mean the rest of us should.
Plenty as big as comcast, just none in the US, though I believe ATT tried it at the same time "in select markets" and stopped after the backlash(but their cap was like 100GB).
And I'm strickly talking non-mobile internet connection. There are providers, in the US, that cap at below 10GB per month, and they've been doing it long before Comcast did.
I've played many good EA titles over the years. Some bad but mostly good. I've also had to use Comcast in the last town I lived and it was by far the worst company to deal with for internet. Terrible customer service, terrible service that cut out almost daily and sometimes for hours on end.
Comcast is one of the worst companies in the USA.
I think this is how it will play out...
BofA vs. Ticketmaster: BofA
PayPal vs. Walmart: Walmart
AT&T vs. Facebook: AT&T
Comcast vs. EA: EA
BofA vs. Walmart: Walmart
AT&T vs. EA: AT&T
Walmart vs. AT&T: AT&T
AT&T is consistently rated last for customer service, dropped calls, and virtually every other metric a telecomm is measured by. Moreover, they keep buying out smaller telecomms expanding their reign of terror. AT&T is difficult to beat.
And yes, I'm sad Ubisoft isn't on the list at all.
Edit: Oh the results are in:
YAY! My predictions were 100% accurate.
I'm 75% AT&T is going to beat EA. I'm 49/51 on BofA/Walmart. BofA really screwed up this year on fines and the like but Walmart has a larger customer base. Everyone also knows that Walmart sells out USA manufacturing jobs to China and Taiwan making them everyman's enemy. AT&T hurts the pocketbook and tempers far more though so I think it will edge out the win.
Small Penis Power FTW! Anyway I think AT&T have them all beat.
BofA vs. Walmart today:
Westwood had RTS games before Command and Conquer, I was merely stating that they basically started the genre.
I can totally agree with that. The FCC broke up AT&T a long time ago because it was a monopoly, and all they have done is spend all this time buying and merging with all the small companies to form a monopoly again. Honestly, I have to give it to Comcast for actually trying to compete with AT&T and venture into a new area(phones) to do it. That is a huge step for a company, they might not be perfect, but they are trying unlike AT&T who just wants to be a monopoly again so they can drill their customers in the a$$.
The problem with AT&T is they never bother to fully integrate those they buy out so services that used to work don't anymore. It makes everyone angry because instead of quality of service staying the same or improving, it always falls dramatically. Then they add insult to injury by discovering the plan/contract you were on before the buyout was actually vastly superior to what AT&T offers. So either you get stuck, technology wise, at when the buyout occured or you kick yourself in the ass and accept new, inferior terms.
And since they don't even know what they're doing, whenever you try to contact them about anything, you get put into a roulette of the clueless. 9/10 you'll get frustrated and give up. They're doing the exact same thing Ford did around 2000: buyout after buyout after buyout until it dawns on the next CEO (Bill Ford) to come in that those aren't helping the brand/bottomline at all.
It's a shame the FTC hasn't done it's job since the early 1900s.
Worst Compan In America will be EA or Bank of America. Vote now:
I was wrong, BofA beat Wal-Mart. Surprising.
EA is the best screw all company's.
well between BofA and EA i'd go EA simply becuase they're more likely to give a damn than BofA who'll continue screwing people for fun regardless of popularity.
I voted for EA in the finals. I didn't realize how bad they were until I played recent games from Bioware and noticed what they were doing with the whole online pass thing.
I used to be a BoA customer many years ago. Didn't exactly had a problem with them, but very glad I left them anyways and currently in a credit union. Chase was the one that screwed me over by trying to charge me $10,000,000 (http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=89307)...
EA killed Mass Effect. I hope they win the finals
I like Bank of America. They have always been real good with me and fair.
Now, that could be my first choice for worst company, I second your nomination.
sorz for wierd grammar and post im tzping from mobile device ------------------------
Totally agree with the outcomes, Bofa deserves the win there - they have been in the whole wikileaks & govt security contractor clusterfuck ... EA is more evil than people might see from outside ... just look the EA Sports boss peter moore ... that guy already looks like a devil. - see a dev testimonial in some trailers like wiiu e3 confirmed games reel.
This is so interesting because i agree with all those outcomes that were posted above ... walmart deserves a win over paypal because they have been ugly in a lot of other areas such as the high profile case of a forgot how many thousand of woman filled class action lawsuits againt discrimination and lower wages against men.
Bofa desevers in all cases that like a no brainer ... but it kind of weird when comparing to EA ... i mean EA doesnt deserve to be pardoned , but it boggles down to the actual harm it makes , and to the WHOLE WORLD point of view , bofa does the most harm. big big topic ... i mean, bofa is one of the criminal elites.
You just dislike Bank of America because it has America in the name.
I live in America, and I dislike America. Hell I even kill for America (literally), so can't blame the man there xD.
