Re: Blizzard/Activision merge!
You people do realise that Activision only published Tony Hawk? The games were developed by Neversoft.

Madden 2009: Diablo Edition!  This comic here echoes my opinions on EA's signature properties.

Not only that but you can create your own character's appearance, personality and clothing.. Have them get jobs, make friends, fall in love all while fighting the hordes of evil.

Re: Blizzard/Activision merge!
Activision has done a lot of good games, perhaps some day will see a finished SC:Ghost or dare I think of a MW5 game made by them and Blizzard? Miracles? :D

Re: Blizzard/Activision merge!
i personally think all game publishing companies are evil. look at ea. let it be known that i despise consoles. besides perhaps playing red faction on my brother's ps2 back when it came out, i havent touched a console since the sega saturn. one of the things i hated about console games, was sitting through 5 minutes of forced logos that you couldnt get out of, followed by an equally long load time. your typical pc game usually skips right into the loading phase, if not level loading at least the gui. i own exactly 2 games published by ea, one of which being crysis, the other being battlefield 2. and both have the forced logos. crysis has the publishers logo, the engine logo, i cant remember of the developer had their logo, probibly. an intel logo and a nvidia logo (which makes no sense as i already use intel and nvidia), and then some other logos after that.

NOT ON MY PC GAMES *****!!! IF YOU WANT ME TO NOT PIRATE YOUR GAMES DONT PUT THOSE ****ING LOGOS UP ANY ****ING MORE!!! BECAUSE IF I HAVE TO WATCH YOURE ****ING ADDS I WILL FEEL LIKE I ALREADY PAID FOR IT WITH MY PRECIOUS AND FINITE TIME!!!  :mad:
I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

You know you can manually move those video files into another folder and the game won't find them. If you do that, it skips over the intro videos... :nod:

thats not the point, the point is that they are there. and if i have to take the time to hack them away, then my original point is still valid.

It's a somewhat terrible name in my opinion. But then again, I don't think I'd want to think of something better.

My first reaction when I heard of the merger was "OMG! WTF? . . . WTF?!" No seriously.  :wtf:

Re: Blizzard/Activision merge!
Being the sole human being on this planet that is not interested in Blizzard games, I find it hard to care about the merger. Aside from the "OMG factor", I don't see anything substantially changing. It's not like we're going to see Call of Duty 5: Azeroth anytime soon.

Anything that fights the EA juggernaut is fine by me.

i was told in school that it was inertia which makes the earth go round. why the hell do you think im so inclined to have the earth nuked. all this spinning makes me dizzy. advertising is a leech mechanism, nothing more. a bloated economy might not be the best thing for the human race. ads make the average person a greedy shell of a human. notice how the assholness of humanity increases as the societies profit. no! the earth must be set ablaze! burn this rock to the mantle, decay its orbit till it falls into the sun, then destroy the sun! :mad:

i dont need ads to tell me what to buy, im fully capable of investigating the market for things i want/need without annoying and stupid ads being blasted into my face almost constantly. its an insult to put an ad into any media which i may choose to buy. no! never surrender to them! advert your sight and plug your ears. let no ad into your mind! :D

I agree with your opinion that it's not really important to you/me. It's just the randomness of hearing it without any pretext that made my reaction.
