Report EA development at IGN in General Chatter Posted May 8, 2003 Another IGN article today I couldnt resist but to share and comment about. Have to admit my attitude on EA is less than satisfactory ever since they took Renegade and made a feeble attempt at making the gaming audience do the work for them by securing the rights to "mods". Basically took the initial title and boiled it down to basic deathmatch with vehicles when the entire idea of having C&C in first person was just that...C&C in first person. (anyone who played original C&C and redalert know what I mean) If the community wanted to play Tribes they could have done so...just not use jetpacks. That and they axed a ton of cool ideas in E&B. (I was in beta4 -> release) which ended up making it everquest in space. So in light of past efforts to squeeze every last drop of cash out of their audience this lastest news doesnt suprise me. Basically I wish EA would have stuck to sports and left the other gaming companies out there alone. Monopolistic money mongerers /rant off P.S. on a side note BF1942 turned out well despite their involvement...just who knows what it could have been without them being present.
