EA On Gears of War – “Nothing New” November 10, 2006Posted by dpcough in EA.
If you play video games you know about EA. Every year they crank out a sequel for their thirty franchises with little innovation and little upgrades. They got tired of working hard on Madden so they bought the rights to be the only NFL game out there.Gears of War is the killer app for Xbox 360 and is great. Apparently Alain Tascan, general manager for EA Montreal doens’t think so, he said: “What is Gears of War? I mean Gears of War brings nothing in terms of innovation to the shooter… Like, zero.” Do you know what the chainsaw is Mr.Tascan – Hammer of Dawn? Stop and Pop with cover?
He didn’t even shut his mouth after those comments.
“I’m not talking about my tastes, I’m just saying, when you go to metacritic and you see a 96 for Gears of War, then you read the critics saying, ‘Okay, storyline – there’s none, gameplay is not innovative…’ Then I say, why did they give this 96? They were blown away by the high quality of the graphics… Myself, I prefer something more creative”
Please, be quiet and don’t hurt your company any more because Gears of War is better than every game you made this year so far. You lose – make a groundbreaking game like this and I’ll buy an EA Montreal title and the $50 in Microtransactions they charge.
