EA's got like a reverse Midas Touch.


Is that why they make so much money?

They killed Westwood. Brutally.
Just look at the huge downfall of quality in the Command & Conquer series since Red Alert 1.

Oh yeah, and the next installment is being developed by Bioware Victory, which in it's turn has absolutely NOTHING to do with the real Bioware whatsoever.

They literally disemboweled westwood with their restrictions and then pushed games out to market when they weren't ready since so many WW employees up and quit. Man that was a bad time for PC games.

Same deal for Bullfrog as well.
"Hey, yeah...Bullfrog, was it? We know you like making these world changing sim style games with emphesis on building your power like Themepark, Populus, Magic Carpet, Syndicate and such, and that's just lovely but they don't really sell. Tell you what, how about you go and make us a racing game or we'll close your studio and fire the lot of you. M'kay? Atta boy."

So they made that racing game.
It sucked.

Bullfrog languished ever since.

Lionhead hasn't done much for MS either. That pedo simulator went nowhere too. There seems to be a common link there between EA, Bullfrog, MS and Lionhead, oh yeah it's Molyneux.

Fable? All three were very successful in sales, and reviewed well.

He's talking about the tech demo that they showed when the Kinect was first revealed.

I was referring to the part where he said LH hasn't done much for MS. Milo and Kate was the Kinect thing.

They haven't. Since acquisition: Fable 2 and 3 (last one was very disappointing), and Fable Heroes and Fable Journey which have metacritics 55 and 61, and afaik didn't sell. The only new thing I saw from them was a pedo sim.

What is this pedo sim you are talking about? Because no such thing exists.
