I am a RTS fanatic. My first video game I ever played was DUNE 2000 by westwood studios and I still play that game. I am creating a Company that will be only developing RTS genre games.
I hope there's a special place in HELL that EA and their brainwashed followers go to!
yes bring westwood, then shoot yourself in the head EA!!!
the same as EA in general :P
if we didn't speak our mind on topics like this, what do you thing that would help? The consumers of the companies should tell them what is on our mind. Or would you prefer that companies make products we don't want. If they don't care about what we have to say, then shame on them. I'm still going to say my piece.
I enjoy how Westwood is still so popular even after it got liquidated. I wonder if people would care as much if EA got liquidated(what an exellent idea).
Westwood may be gone, but it is NOT dead! Westwood Studios invented the RTS genre. And there is NOTHING that EA or ANYONE else can do to change that!
EA is the most well known and most hated company in gaming. EA games sucks the life out of our favorite game companies and tears them apart. Then thay take their accomplishments and destroy it! Westwood studios was doing just fine under EA and there would be less people attacking them if they could play nice with others. But EA "liquidates" any company that has ideas they like and TEARS it from them in a "legal aggrement" that they dictate.
Really, then maybe they should have been giving westwood some more time instead of pushing their deadlines too short. For example, CnC Tiberian Sun was being pressed by EA for WW to finish without being a direct part in development to be of much assistance thus left bugs in the program that they didn't have time to get fixed. almost seems EA wanted to beat out Westwood from the start.
If Westwood was stot down because they wasted their money why did EA buy them with $122.5 million? that seems a bit "idiotic" don't you think?
BTW: There are two thing that suck in the world, EA and vacuum cleaners!
