I been playing Conquer Online for 9 years.
After 8.5 years I deleted a character worth over $5000.
The past 6 months my friends gave me even better gear than the old 5k of gear I had.
Good community but since Arabic countries were able to connect to Conquer Online they ruined it and killed the economy.
I re-read your posting.
I <3 Burnout Paradise on 360.
When it first came out long ago, I had a bunch of top street time world ranks.
I ended up slacking and let others become top 5 for the street times because it became a daily task trying to stay on top rank and I had to live my life. lol
I haven't seen ranks in a while but this is enticing me me to go wag my tail at them!
MoH is kind of old for me. Played, moved on. EA Games eh...
Deadspace and BF3. aka Ea Games.
I stay far away from EA Games since about 2007 when battlefield 2 devs lost support.
Except I have played BF3-4 and few other titles since then to see what was up but I don't play them today.
Same for Sims. I stay updated since Sims Online was turned into Ea Land and then atm machines were implemented and it killed TSO-EaLand. Everyone was pissed including employees and a few of the owners.
rem *** begin rant ***
EA Games is super shitty at keeping important devs and paying them accordingly for their demanding work.
They would rather supply you with bottles of EA water and EA toilet paper than give you your paycheck or allow you to have 1 more day or week to get the job done correctly (after bug checking) instead of release software without correcting the known bugs then declining to do a patches or important decisions later on which they once agreed to prior.
EA dev teams have made some cool games and game engines too which made EA super rich.
Some of the devs are to blame for why EA makes their decisions though. Those devs being right or wrong isn't the case. They should have a larger committee designing their goals if they want to be great.
Ignoring projects and patches because they still rake money. Doesn't mean it shouldn't be fixed.
"Hey Bob! Hi Frank! Let's release another title so we can make project funding for next year!" Who can we scam today? Get on the phone ! rofl. Something like this.
If EA wanted to pay me 300k a yr, i would decline. Done with their bs.
The poor victims of EA would agree. I'm not talking about civilians; actual companies broken or ripped off.
