Even the mainstream are now predicting the death of EA

So recently some normalfags i know were talking about how "EA is in a real bad way nowadays" and that was fucking odd. Then a few days later i see some websites talking about "EA might be actually ready to splinter or collapse" and i was directed to a segment from the Giant Bomb podcast where Jeff and Brad are talking about "EA lost its identity and its new higher ups dont have an idea if where they wanted to go beyond every studio had to come up with a star wars pitch to stay afloat"

When even the mainstream is saying "i dont know what form EA takes a year from now" you have to wonder who its audience is anymore. From what i have seen the 'always online lockbox service' idea is not even taking off with the normalfag crowd in the numbers they need and other areas Japan in particular are really getting their shit together in terms of single player games.

If the games as a service meme isn't going to take off whats the state of EA? back to movie license and sport games meme hell? their ten year madden contracts up for renewal soon and there's strong rumour Madden is being wined and wined by Activision this time around.

Is people calling EA's collapse the first sign of a crash? we always joke about it but i never expected it to happen.

BioWare is a shell of its former self, and I doubt they'll ever make a hit again.
If you're right about Activision poaching the NFL's deal, that would fuck EA over, hard.

Maybe. I've seen a surprising number of sites and people complaining angrily about gaming turning into gambling. Specifically loot boxes. Not sure why they chose now to suddenly care.
I have a theory that, regarding vidya, normalfags do eventually come around to the right answer, it just takes them about five years to catch up to Holla Forums. Still, I doubt there will be enough consumer pushback to actually change things.

What makes you think it's in danger?
It is true that EA doesn't do nearly as much with Star Wars as they could, though. Since TOR we've had…what? NuBattlefront, and a bunch of shovelware games. And just when they were having Visceral branch out to do something interesting with it, they shitcan that project, close the studio, and tell everyone it's going to be yet another multiplayer game.

EA makes a lot of money from things other than generic AAA games. Enough to make lots of shitty games. It's like they are doing it on purpose for the lolz.

For EA, the only solution is the final solution.

Jeremiah Ramirez
Jeremiah Ramirez

It's too soon to proclaim them dying though they are on a great decline, Visceral is nothing special in the long run, when big name studios like Bioware and Dice close down is when they start dying. Once Bioware and Dice are gone they will be left with only sports titles, EA Sports will be the only part of the company left that's of worth and that's when the downsizing happens. By that point the company is relying on sport games and is nearly dead, we will only have to wait as they bleed out all of their IPs.

I think EA is too big to truly go bankrupt or anything, they'll just make changes when their practices can't continue profitably.
I can speak to normalfags waking up though, it's mostly financial. EA has gone so jewish with their shekel-mining that they've actually struck bedrock, there's nothing left to be milked except from the most stupid of society. Like, actual retards. Normals love to blow money on stupid shit for a self-esteem boost, but loot boxes and similar trash aren't new and exciting anymore, and normalfags are realizing they get literally nothing for their money. At least if they spend the money on alcohol they can have social fun, or if they spend it on status symbol baubles then they can show themselves off in public.

Perfectly natural. Before games catered to your normalfag cousin, but nowadays they're oddly enough catering to SJWs. To make matters worse, because many of the devs are SJWs themselves and most of the time diversity hires, they lack the talent to make a mechanically sound game that's fun to play. So the game comes out buggy, unfun, and entirely politically driven. It's like the devs forgot they were selling a luxury item and need to appeal to their market, especially during the recession.

EA's death is going to be very long and very slow. They'll slowly start losing smaller studios, until all they are left with is sports.

They've been going down that road for a very long time. But as others mentioned, they've done very well with sports. But, like with NFL, it's easy for sports to fall out of favor. I highly doubt real football will ever lose popularity, but I could easily see EA as a publisher that just makes FIFA in 10 years.

EA would just cut out the fat and optimized their development

No, you complete idiot. They don't make shit other than Battlefield clones and sport shit because they can't. Do you think it's just mere incompetence they haven't made anything with the Star Wars IP besides two subpar Battlefront games and some mobile turd? They have no talent left to make games for them, they've chewed up and spit out all the developers they bought out, burned all the bridges they had and poisoned so many IPs and pissed off so many gamer demographics all they've got left is sports and DICE, and DICE is very busy shitting their own bed while FIFA and Madden seem more concerned with BLM shit and pushing gay rights.

I was the OP of the smug thread from yesterday. According to eurogamer W2 sales are down more than 50% compared to New order sales at release. The game is also a buggy mess on pc and has mixed (67%) reviews. The thread should still be up picture of Hugh Mungus should help you find it quicker.

While I doubt EA will straight up die, or any big name publisher for that matter, I can see them downsizing and losing market share over time due stagnation, unprofitable ventures and just shitty business practices.

They'll stay afloat by the annual sports or generic shooter title, maybe purchase some dev here and there, with the end result being obvious. But, even if they simply are forced to become smaller so other groups can have a chance to flourish, that's a victory.

Which resulted in much of the game being a mess that had copy pasted sections all over the place. Entire zones were just a few sections copy pasted over and over and over.

It was such a fuckup that when they decided to revamp for 2.0 they scrapped most everything and started over. Somewhat notably they had initially spent tons of time and energy on graphics, while 2.0 downplayed the graphics aspect and focused on gamplay along with 'unique' designs to zones (rather than copy pasting).

Fuck ups like EA is going through will result in them pulling back and trying to consider what makes money versus what doesn't. I would imagine areas like Bioware which have fucked up repeatedly by trying to be like giant movies will get told to implement more fun things rather than story bullshit.

From what I've heard on the news more Americans are watching to spite their president, the NFL has had record high viewings and has been selling out tickets more than ever

Yeah nah. Problem the NFL has is most of its fans are white people who don't expect to see this shit. Various sponsors of the NFL have been dealing with constant complaints. One beer company actually was noted as having to add a section on their complaints line specifically for the NFL.

Papa Johns even has made statements about how they hoped this shit was done with a year and half ago, and want this over with already.

The NFL and MSM expected the kneeling would be lauded or at least seen as a non-issue by most fans, when in reality it was one of the most divisive things they could have done. And it hurts the NFL all the more because white people, who hate the kneeling, are the ones that spend most of the money.

Isn't Papa Johns directly blaming their slumping sales on the NFL?

Think it was said they see a massive drop in orders and their market research shows a negative reaction to any ad played during games in that time.
Their stock fell over 10 percent, basically losing 70 million dollars, after releasing the financial reports to shareholders and pulled all their current ad campaigns on games.

Typing edible cutlery into a search engine gave me a designated product. The fork eater might live.

Products

Bakeys uses different types of flours to bake single-use edible spoons, forks and chopsticks which can be consumed after their intended use.[4][5] Since 2010, it has sold more than 1.5 million pieces of cutlery throughout India.[6] As of April 2016, the company only markets edible spoons, but has plans to expand its operations to begin distribution of forks and chopsticks with income from a Kickstarter funding campaign.[5] As of April 2016, the company only ships its products within India.[5]

The products are vegetarian, and are manufactured using with all-natural ingredients, (primarily) sorghum (jowar), and other types of flours such as wheat, rice, and millet.[4][6] The spoons have a shelf-life of 18 months and are so made that they will naturally decompose between 3 and 7 days after use if not consumed.[2] The spoons are manufactured in several flavors, such as cumin, mint-ginger, carrot-beetroot and sugar.[5][7]

outsourced chinese coders
Bro, they had some of their best people working on that shit, including a bunch of the people from FF11. This was actually a huge blow for the company to the point that it threatened to ruin the Final Fantasy brand because they had no easy excuses like "We had outsourced this" or "We let some other company work on this" or whatever, no, it was them, their main people in-house working on it.

There was a documentary made about it where they talked at length about what exactly happened, and it was basically just them throwing all their best talent onto a team and expecting magic to happen with no plan and no coordination. So the graphics artists made their best graphics, the story designers made good story shit, etc etc, but the problem was that absolutely none of it amalgamated together into a good game. Nobody asked questions like "Is this fun" or "Does this feel good", they took the attitude of "YES I AM A GRAPHIC DESIGNER AND LOOK AT HOW PERFECT AND WONDERFUL THIS BARREL I MADE IS".

The gameplay was repetitive and boring, the system requirements were WAY TOO HIGH for the time, and the game only released on windows despite the majority of their potential userbase being on playstation 3 at the time. Add in the fact that they had grown complacent and hadn't even bothered to look at their competition (other MMOs) to see what kinds of market they were walking into, and it's easy to see how such an awful product marched out the door.

Here, if you wanna watch the documentary about that shit.

Landon Lee

I've seen a surprising number of sites and people complaining angrily about gaming turning into gambling. Specifically loot boxes. Not sure why they chose now to suddenly care.
It gets exposure because redditors love government regulation and the media loves the idea of broadly worded regulatory laws. Legislators have no fucking clue what a loot box is, or how to word a law to specifically target only dumbass Steam skins without loopholes. They certainly give zero fucks about ensuring the integrity of videogames from greedy publishers. By the time the law passes Gaben will be scamming these same idiots in different ways. The only reason this gets any mainstream attention is to again trumpet the narrative of the government as savior from greedy businessmen.

If anyone thinks I'm exaggerating then please find me an article that presents the solution as educating parents instead of calling for regulation, because that would give me some hope.

True they're producing garbage with diminishing returns (already dropping by 400 million between two movies with rumors the Hans Solo movie was completely reshot), but they're still getting returns.

At Disney you have to wonder if someone knows they're going to kill the Star Wars Licence within a decade. Yes Space Epics appear to be the next big thing after comic movies, but that doesn't bold well for Disney. Right now they make returns for being the only player on the field, but soon rival teams will be there. Like when Witcher 3 released and everyone started talking shit about Skyrim and Fallout.

Disney has 10 years to milk this franchise and when EA is screwing it up every step of the way you have to know that Disney will revoke the license from them sooner or later.

Where it gets murkey is a clever person could probably argue (certainly to the layman) that these lootboxes are gambling. In an entertainment genre that is still said to be played by children, so ultimately you can sell the argument that it's unregulated gambling aimed at children.

bullshit
Truth is even in my deep blue state most sports fans I know were pissed by it.
Sure, a lot of people did support the kneeling or were indifferent to it, but said people don't watch sports or support it in any way. The NFL appealing to these people cost them viewers and money while gaining nothing from their "supporters". If they gained viewers initially, it was only brief.

It's not that he attacked Russia that fucked him over - a fight with Russia was gonna happen on Hitler's terms, or Stalin's terms, because Stalin was preparing for conquest - what ruined the campaign was Hitler having a Napoleon moment where he got very ill for a crucial portion of the thrust into Russia, and his generals ignored the plan of attack he had laid out. Hitler was more than a great speaker, he was a brilliant, and ambitious strategist; but a lot of good that is when you're unable to direct your military.

What's crazy is, Guardians is running laps around Star Wars in everything from visuals and world building to space battles and story. Re-watch Guardians 2, take note of all the throwaway aliens, and weird wildlife they pepper the movie with, without being a pretentious asshole like Star Wars usually is and drawing attention to it. The big "wow" thrill at discovering something new I used to get from Star Wars, I don't get it anymore. But I get it a lot from Guardians movies. They should let James Gunn direct Star Wars. But then they'd just micromanage him all to shit and the movie would still suck.

Nolan Reed

They won't close BioWare yet. It still sells. It may be dovetailing, but they're not done milking it to death. There's at least a new dragon age game in the works. That brand isn't fully taint yet. Just mostly ruined, but EA is putting lipstick on a pig and getting marketers to sell it to a mass of turbocasuals, which is EA at its best. Now after that game BioWare might be fully kill, but for now it's still sorta around.

TV networks are running out of excuses for the dwindling popularity of the National Football League.
They blamed the election for ratings declines last year, and hurricanes for a soft week one in September. Protests during the national anthem, and President Donald Trump’s criticism of the league, have faded from the headlines.
Advertisers are starting to believe a different explanation: the viewers aren’t coming back. Audiences are down an average 7 percent from a year ago through the first eight weeks of the season, excluding last Monday. That’s on top of a decrease of about 8 percent last season that spurred numerous changes in the broadcasts, from shorter commercials to better matchups earlier in the year.
“There’s just not as many people watching TV the way they used to watch TV,” said Jeremy Carey, managing director of Optimum Sports, a sports marketing agency. “It’s going to be an issue for advertisers when they can’t reach a large-scale audience the way they have.”
