Endless Acquistions

Filed under: Geek Stuff — Tags: — britinla @ 2:32 am

I know that allowing prejudices to control one’s reaction to news is a bad habit, but the recent purchase of Bioware by EA filled me with dread. On the one hand we have a software company responsible for two of my favourite computer games of all time; Never Winter Nights and Knights of the Old Republic. On the other side is a company whose idea of a new game is to add one to the year in the game’s title; FIFA 2007, NHL, 2007 etc. EA are also the company involved in the EA Widow scandal of a few years back; which can hardly fill Bioware’s staff with endless joy.

I hope that it ends well, but it requires more than optimism to see this being of benefit to the quality of Bioware’s production.
