    They release to many games, if they slowed down a bit their games may be above the standard and be amazing games. But dont get me wrong, some of their games are really good!

    Couldn’t have put that better to be honest, I could be sure EA announced they would be doing a new Need For Speed game every 24 months and not every 12... now there releasing another 3 games in the series this year (if you include some online only version of it)

    Might give Army of Two: The 40th Day a go as the first one was quite enjoyable.

    I'm looking forward to Dead Space and FIFA 10. I think they really stepped it up with FIFA 09 as I'm sure you'll agree Safinn, and I hope to god they can do it again with FIFA 10. And the first Dead Space was really good, still need to finish that actually, but I reckon the sequel will be just as good.

    EDIT: Also Mass Effect 2, despite the first game annoying me no end, it is good.

    Way too early for a sequel to Dead Space Munky. You'll actually find that Dead Space Extraction is the original Dead Space game remade for the Wii. I'm most looking forward to Brutal Legend as I've heard only good things about it from previews and what not.

    Yes, there was a big difference between Fifa 08 and Fifa 09 so they actualy "uped" the game instead of previouse titles where they just changed players and graphics a little.

    The only games I'm going to try out from that list is Army of Two, Fifa 10, Fight night round 4 and The Sims3.

    While EA do indeed make video games, only 13 out of the 25 listed there are actually MADE by EA; they are publishing those ones.

    EA get so much work done, in such a small time scale, because there are many seperate divisions of EA that make different titles; to name a few:

    EA Redwood make Dead Space (and extinction)

    EA Sports, and EA Sports BIG make all of the sports games, if you hadn't already worked out.
    The Sims (along with MySims) and SPORE is made by Maxis Studios, but they are all-but owned by EA.
    EA Montreal made Army of Two
    The other 12 titles are made by seperate companies

    *I was supposed to quote Safinn, sorry*

    The only game I'm interested in is NFS: Shift. I've skipped the last 2 games in the series, and this is the only NFS title that has interested me in a long time.



    E3 starts today. :D

    I hate E3.

    Look at all the cool stuff you won't get to play for a while! I have a feeling something about Final Fantasy XIII will pop-up. That is only what'll interest me since i've been waiting for this one for awhile already. If I watch E3 then there will be more games that i'll want but will have to wait.

    You liked Most Wanted didn’t you? I’m surprised you didn’t like under cover... that’s very similar and the only NFS games that’s interested me for a long while.

    Sadly I know shift won’t be for me, the Wikipedia article says “Shift takes its place aiming at hardcore gamers and focusing on simulation racing and drifting rather than the arcade racing of previous titles in the series”

    I like the arcade racers, I don’t enjoy anything too realistic.



    Gotta agree with what you’re saying Dark Scyth, that’s always annoyed me about E3. Ive always liked all the stuff Microsoft do on Xbox Live... there usually a few exclusive demos on there and a lot of E3 related content that kinda makes up for the wait.

    I honestly never played it. Seems like it would be much of the same as Most Wanted...I want something new! Shift seems to be a new direction. It's not what I had hoped it would be...like returning to it's roots, but sim racing games also interest me. (H)

    The only racing sim-like game that I liked was Sega GT 2002. It came with Jet Set Radio Future. Both of those games were awesome. I haven't played NFS in forever, I liked Most Wanted on PSP, it was good to play every once and awhile.

    I have been wanting to play Jet Set Radio Future lately. I really miss playing that game.
