After my departure I’m going to be spending significant time with family and friends, as well as pursuing some personal passion-driven projects related to craft beer. The main project I will be working on is a web-based interview show called The Beer Diaries where I interview notable brewers and showcase their beers. If things go well, I’ll work on other beer-related shows, apps and projects. If not, I’ll have drunk a lot of tasty beers

So... how long until Bioware is shut down after disappointing sales or merely creating Call of Honor or Medal of Duty for EA as their third try at beating Call of Duty?

 

2-3 years?

Yeah yeah, business in EA as usual, if you can not beat it, buy it and destroy it...

 

I am sad that once so awesome developer got consumed again (I got every single game from Bio before the merger, after if I stopped buying their games), but they had a lot of bad examples in before, so serves them right...

 

But what do they care, it is easy to brew beer with their millions, to bad their employees are not so fortunate...

 

Next please...

Bioware is killing itself. EA is just the method.

They need to add Mythic Entertainment in with that group.

 

For being a couple of Doctors they weren't very smart to not see this coming. Oh well, I'm sure they made themselves quite a bit of money and really don't care if Bioware is now associated with a pile of dung.

Anyway, they were bought in October 2007, as we have soon October 2012, so presumably they 5-years contract surely expired...

Ray is becoming some kind of entrepreneur advisor, and Greg is gonna have a show about beer brewing! :w00t:

 

It'll be interesting to see what effect (if any) this has on BioWare going forward. In terms of their ability to make games (to a certain extent) how they want to, one would assume that Bio just lost two of its staunchest and more powerful supporters when discussing things with their EA overlords.

 

But at least Casey Hudson is still around! Long live artistic integrity endings!

Why would I care? Time moves on. Won't effect my life at all. As always, if BIO makes games I like I buy if not I don't buy. Simple as that.

Looks like part of their severance includes a non-compete clause as they aren't coming back to the industry for atleast a few years.

Let's Play The Temple of Elemental Evil (Complete)
Let's Play Neverwinter Nights and Hordes of the Underdark

Let's Play Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn

I was struggling to understand ths until I noticed you are from Finland. And having been educated solely by mkreku in this respect I am convinced that Finland essentially IS the wh40k universe.

Have you ever disliked a BioWare game? Off the top of my head I cannot remember if you have or not...

 

Perhaps Jade Empire?
