Looking at EA’s recent decline of good pc material (except the wonderful Spore), and the withn the utter disappoint ehnt of the next Madden game being little more of “same old crap”, add "sites zones:, add a few more monotone repeating “Madden quipps”, and SHIP!
We need a running game, and we need real stats. REAL REAL REAL stats that make a differece in the gmawe. REAL stats the impact all the simluated games and makes the results reliaistc.
Well, I’m amazined in that I’m buying 4x as many games from UBIsoft as I am from EA because they have a better variety for pc gamers. Silent Hunter III, Lock-On, IL-2 in Pacfic are 3 excellent examples.
I greatly fear if EA buys them out, all the gaming goodness we’ve been happy to have will be axed. Just like what EA did to the JANE’s team. Which tells me somthing… If you want to make a successful sim go anywhere expect EA. Cause however they “managed EA Janes”, was horrific to just abandon it. But mayby if they’d listened to what every kept telling them MAKE A DYNAMIC CAMPIGN… well coudla made a difference so EA to them to fk off.
Hehe Oops. Well Ambien plus cough syrup can do that to ya too. :oops: . Though I’ve had much worse - Demerol-induced halluciniations while in the hospital… as in, “Can someone please get those pink elephants off the ceiling?”
Well here’s a newsflash. UBI was/is dropping simulations as well. We may see one more Silent Hunter and another IL2 title but that will be it. Then you can look forward to buying your sim products direct from the developers via the internet (if there are any more simulation products).
As for me ? I don’t worry about it anymore. I just pretend I am flying a simulation everytime I hitch a ride on my griffon. :wink:
Ubisoft (UBIP.PA: Quote, Profile, Research) , Europe’s second-largest video games publisher, is in takeover talks with several parties and does not rule out being acquired by larger U.S. rival Electronic Arts (ERTS.O: Quote, Profile, Research) if offered a high enough price, the company’s chairman and chief executive said on Thursday.
“We are speaking with third parties that are interested either to merge (or to invest in the company),” Yves Guillemot told the Reuters Telecoms, Media and Technology Summit here on Thursday.
“If someone comes with a very good offer, that will be very interesting … I’m going to consider it,” Guillemot said, adding that several Chinese companies were among the suitors, although he declined to provide further details.
