    EA, screwing over little studios one at a time, sounds like something Disney would do, and that's not a compliment :creep:

    EA is buying it?

    Cheers to another Titan that will indeed Fall, in EA's hands.

    Isn't the CEO of respawn a dick though?

    He seriously dissed the switch for it being underpowered... He can basically eat his words and his dick now.

    Ea is gonna put out the next titanfall but wait, the only way you can get a titan is by paying a micro transaction.
    And once your titan is destroyed you need to buy another.

    Not to mention future games using the IP are no doubt going to be using Origin DRM. :(
    I get that they're trying to compete with Steam but they're not doing a very good job at it and buying a game on Steam and STILL needing an Origin account to play it is just bullshit.
    I don't mind Disney. People were worried about what they would do to Star Wars and so far all they have really done is bring it back from the ashes. The new movies are good too.

    Of course not, a game without a single player? That is a new breed of games I never saw coming. :wtf:

    So I thought Respawn Entertainment is basically the dudes who used to work at Sledgehammer (or one of those dev studios for Call of Duty back in the day) who got sick of Activision's practices and "Respawn"ed to their new company because they wanted to be independent... sounds like they traded one pair of cuffs for another...
