Isn't this bad for business given how Andromeda bombed and that Anthem and DA 4 are in production?

maybe they'll hire someone who isn't pozzed which is statistically impossible considering bioware is in canada

Reminder that there were numerous writers that had left bioware during development of Andromeda. Bioware also died a long time ago, so there is no loss happening.

Are you implying the previous head of bioware was any good? Honestly Bioware has been going down the shitter so hard lately that replacing their head with any random idiot would probably be an improvement at this point. Laidlaw has been running some seriously low standards and drinking the kool-aid. His projects suffered for it and in the end he took the heat for the fuck-ups and decided to get out.

I think Bioware has slowly been suffering from the realization that they were never any good. They were simply mediocre to decent, and once they started going full retard they were shit to mediocre and started getting called out on it. Those guys were seriously drunk on their own marketing title of "masters of storytelling" and just got fucking retarded with their narrative design.

I'm going to remind you laidlaw was also the dumbfuck who was behind DA2's "evolution" of the RPG genre where he pretended that he was breaking new and exciting ground for RPGs as opposed to making a fugly, lazy, incoherent, unenjoyable game.

Parker Morris

Ain't that the writer for Half-life?

I remember hearing that the founders of Bioware said that the company was already going downhill before EA bought them. They said "Bioware was going to commit suicide, EA handed them a rope."

Wyatt Davis

DA2 literally felt like dlc, it should have cost 20 bucks to bridge DA and whatever came next. Unfortunately Cisquisition came next, so the whole franchise may as well be kaput.
I honestly cant believe DA4 was approved, i think Cisquisition was the straw that injured the camel and Andromeda then broke its back. After these two fuckups DA4 may as well stand for Dead on Arrival.

Daniel Reyes
Daniel Reyes

laidlaw was also the dumbfuck who was behind DA2's "evolution" of the RPG genre

Is he the retard that forced players to play as the preset Hawk rather than the blank slate from DAO? If so, what a retard. Also, the DA story was always retarded. The only saving grace was the interesting combat system where you had to be careful your mages didn't murder themselves or your group. The lewd sections of the game were just an extra that should have just stayed as random extra content rather than being a major part of the series. The equivalent would be if Skyrim decided to make loverslab a selling point for their game. It would just look desperate and it would eventually bring in the trans crowd that DA did.

They developed some okay stuff with NWN/nwn2 but really it was the modders and obsidian that made those games great.

I thought it was Marc Laidlow announcing that he was going to work on Ass Effect, then I continued reading and stayed confused until I notice his name was Mike

fuck off OP

Ryan Lewis

curry thunder laid off
How the fuck did I miss that? Someone want to give me the laugh worthy bits?

Blake Sullivan
Blake Sullivan

I'm not sure any single man takes the credit for that. Part of it was probably Laidlaw, part of it was EA, part of it was probably the crew wanting to make Dragon Age more like Mass Effect for the big bucks, so they started randomly throwing in more ME design shit.

Do you have a source for this? Failing that, can you at least venture at the time and place of this saying of theirs? Would make a lot of sense, though. Those guys got out fast while the going was good.

EA bought them up and decided if you go half-retard you're fucked so they went full retard on Bioware, but the Bioware divisions are slowly getting axed. Remember Bioware's magnum opus WoW-killer MMORPG? Me either. Entire division got shitcanned iirc, but then again it was mostly coasting on the Bioware name rather than being any part of Bioware proper.

John Johnson

When I saw the name, I wondered, are they related? Can't find any info on that.

No they aren't related.

how hard would it be to get a job at EA/Bioware?

I mean, with the crap they release, surely they must be desperate for something thats not leftie garbage.

Jace Roberts

The industry is a revolving door of shit. If only getting ejected meant never seeing their names in the credits again.

Jaxson Cook

Seems to me EA quite enjoys being surrounded by Marxist shit. You don't go and make something like Battlefield 1 by coincidence.

Julian Harris
Julian Harris

As far as I know, he was laid off before Andromeda was even released.

Thomas Long
Thomas Long

Wasn't he an outside contractor whose contract had expired or something? I don't think BioWare actually ever fired him, though he seems to not have been hired for any other big projects since then and is wasting his time with indie faggots and trying to be as much of a wigger as possible.

Carson Hill
Carson Hill

this. Frankly I am glad they shat out glorious games like andromeda because gamers really deserve nothing else. It's sad to see them go, I wish they could have created more great turds that would have sold well just to laugh at the cucks. well at least we still have star shitizen

Brody Allen

If Dargon Age 2 was the bullet to the head, than this is the garsoline and the burning match to the corpse.

Just disassemble the wreckage and bury their name, jEAw

Let them be forgotten forever!

Blake Collins

Back when Baldur's Gate 1 came out cRPGs were in something of a slump and no big publisher in the industry was willing to invest into making new games in the genre, as they were seen to be a dead end like adventure games. With Interplay shitting itself and facing bankruptcy, and every other famous cRPG developer more or less dead.

If you look at the list of cRPGs released in the period of 1998 and 1999 the only noteworthy titles you'll find are Fallout 2 and Might and Magic VI and VII, Return to Krondor, with Ultima IX being something no one wants to remember ever existing. By the time Baldur's Gate 2 rolled around there basically had no competition outside of Jeff Vogel (the Geneforge) guy.

Gavin Miller

I didn't think he was laid off, though. I thought he quietly excused himself, scrubbed his social media, and then ran for the fucking hill like a month before Andromeda shipped. The whole thing reeked of him just being a distraction to stir up shit and keep Andromeda in the public eye through controversy for as long as possible.

They had to have known Andromeda was going to get torn to shreds through mock reviews and they wanted to get out ahead of it and change the conversation away from their incompetence into the overwhelming criticism just being a hate campaign against women and progressive values.

Nathaniel Myers
Nathaniel Myers

scrubbed his social media
Go look his twitter up, it's full of anti-white posts, praise for the kneeling groids, whining why the national anthem isn't a rap song, etc.

a distraction to stir up shit
Nope, that's your average BioWare employee and the main reason their games are so shit.

They had to have known
They are leftists, they have no ability for introspection. They are part of a cult whose main tenet is that nothing in their lives is their fault and must be laid at the feet of white men.

They'll get some know-nothing diversity hire so when the company folds they can blame those mean ol' gamergaters and Trump for the companies dissolution instead of the fact that being a bunch of barnstorming thundertards who couldn't make anything close to a "good game" even if their lives depended on it.

It means his wife gets fucked by other men while women avoid him like the plague.

I think.

Thomas Sanchez

It's a real challenge to make waifus that their 95% straight, white male audience wants to fuck, especially when you think doing the exact opposite will make people that don't play games buy your shitty product.

The smart ones are scrubbing their social media accounts of all the anti-white and anti-Western comments and trying to figure if it's smart to mention they worked for BioWare in the past five years.

I woulda thought any Bioware workers with brains would have jumped ship after ME3 to better things… like getting fucked on camera.

BioWare didn't "renew his contract," which in Leafland means basically fired.

Hudson Baker

even the head of bioware was doing pronouns bullshit

That would explain the asari pronouns lore rape in ME:A

Ethan Ward
Ethan Ward

They were probably getting uncomfortable about him and his views on white people and didn't want him coming into work one day with a rifle.

I thought Asaris were all women?

Bentley Hall
Bentley Hall

I thought Asaris were all women?
All their nouns being translated to female variants in English was a translation error in the earlier games. Even the times when the asari were apparently speaking English instead of being translated by space magic.

Hunter Hughes
Hunter Hughes

People call them feminine because they look feminine but asari are genderless on their side of the translator. Some dumbass at BioWare Montreal either didn't know that or just wanted to virtue signal so bad they were okay with shitting on 10 years of asari lore.

Jack Nguyen
Jack Nguyen

but asari are genderless on their side of the translator
They're a monogendered species.

Robert Green

This is the guy that proudly said he wasn't sorry he shoehorned politics in the games isn't it? One less to go.
in a mix of emotions
They didn't renew his contract.

Eli Sanders

I bet he saw how shit Anthem and DA 4 are and got out while he could.
Wait they are making more games?
Is Anthem a new IP or part of the Ass Defect universe?

William Harris
William Harris

Good riddens to bad rubbish. EA probably released their aposomatism-haired hamplanets to eat and then replace him, making this a posthumous writing. By all means, buckle down on your insane ideologies and let the rest of the normalfags see how fucked the state of the industry truly is. Blame it all on Gamergays and spew your internet conspiracy theories that no one outside these events will never understand or care to understand. These are the death-rattles of a system ready to fall.

Gabriel Jackson
Gabriel Jackson

Correct, but Liara says herself in ME1 that she's "not exactly a woman." The asari relative to themselves are mono-gendered (one gender) but to other species with a concept of gender division the asari are genderless.

Aiden Morris
Aiden Morris

Anthem's a new IP. EA wants it to be their Destiny killer. They must not have noticed that Activision already did Destiny in

Jack Price

That's a pretty nice picture of the american flag user.

Tyler Martinez

Adrian Howard

Destiny killer could work if it was something that Destiny was originally supposed to be. EA however can and will fuck it up in over dozen ways. More likely is that it's the same thing as with "WoW killers" and Battleborn.

Lincoln Gutierrez

Pretty much anyone who was ever relevant at Bioware already left after the Mass Effect 3 debacle, if not before that. Some of the major project leads, writers, plus the two company co-founders have been gone for several years now.

Thanks a lot for turning Bioware into your little bitch for social justice EA, I'm sure we enjoy seeing people get hired for their progressive hairstyle and feminist ideals rather than just enjoying the fuck out of video games and being quite competent at working on them.

Camden Moore

In ME2 the leader of the bandit planet defeats that krogan called the patriarch. She nicknamed him the patriarch because she's known as the matriarch and it amused her to call him a name that doesn't exist in her culture. A male leader, since they're all female. Theyre not genderless.

Christopher Thomas
Christopher Thomas

Laidlaw

Wait, is this guy a brother from the guy who wrote the Half-Life script and all?

Liam Adams
Liam Adams

Something along these lines.

Daniel Robinson
Daniel Robinson

If they are all one gender then they are genderless since there's nothing to distinguish between. Or, they're all hermaphrodite to be more accurate. Just because they go by feminine gendered terms when translated into English (or whatever language we hear everybody speak in the games) doesn't mean they are female.

Carter Wood
Carter Wood

God that brought me back.

Mason Edwards
Mason Edwards

He wasn't laid off, he had a limited contract for the duration of his work on ME:Androgynous and left once he was done shitting up the game with his efforts.

Alexander Harris

Isn't this exactly what they are doing with using paid mods as an excuse to have a 3rd remastered edition?

Camden Martin
Camden Martin

That's pretty much it. Without any concept of gender division they're effectively genderless. They just act however they want to act and their lives don't revolve around identity politics, unlike SJWs.

The worst thing about the pronouns bullshit in ME:A is that it gave tumblr exactly the cue it needed to tumblr-ify the asari. Now their Biodrones fantasize about male-identifying and transgender asari. Before ME:A was released I joked that BioWare would put a transgender asari in the game. I should've kept my fucking mouth shut.

I'm pretty sure BioWare Montreal was trying to "apologize" for the asari being so problematic in their concept as sexy blue alien chicks so they tossed them to the tumblr wolves.
