First Stalvern says it’s an 800 pound gorilla, now Sonic says it’s a 9000 pound gorilla. Well, which is it? And does this gorilla throw barrels?

You should not take my 9000 pound gorilla seriously as it a parody of the over 9,000 meme, look it up so you can get the joke? :lol:

Keeping in mind that people PAY those fees to play or use the content. I have relatives that buy Madden each year just for get togethers n to entertain clients.

Remember, as long as people will pay for a service, someone can make money on it.

There is a reason that Wayforward, known for great original content, generates a LOT of licensed games to fund their popular titles, like Shantae

Hey, if people will pay, then I can't fault EA.

I remember back when Elder Scrolls IV came out on the 360 and it was a big deal that anyone would pay whatever it cost for the horse saddle update. Look at how DLC alone has become the norm and people will pay $20+ for costume packs for an RPG...

Thank god as that game is an insult to BioWare legacy and is likely the game that kills the studio game given they are on it last legs.

I want to day I heard the same thing about Bioware after EA bought them, after Dragon Age 2, after Mass Effect 3, and a few other similar incidents.

Sadly, as developers are absorbed and reorganized by large corporate publishers, much of the talent and settings that allowed for what the developer was known for are phased out or removed. Look at so many companies in the late 80s and the late 90s that were absorbed and their talent either left for other ventures or just outright retired from development.

You are not wrong after EA bought Bioware, they have gone more downhill starting with Dragon Age 2 to only have things get really bad by the time Anthem came out. And not the first time either look at Konami buying Hudson Soft and making them more mainstream AAA like Konami, it does not work, especially considering the now infamous Bomberman: Act Zero was more of Konami doing then Hudson and boy does it show!
