If I had to thank both of them for just one thing, it would probably be Mass Effect. Or conversation wheels. Or 'emotional engagement'. Or just generally raising the bar so high in all their games - they were really trailblazers during their time in the industry.

If anyone ever deserved to take the money and run it's these two.

I will admit, my first reaction was: 'Well, I can guess which two franchises we'll be seeing a lot more of'.

They comments suggest they are a little burned out, which is a true shame. One wonders how much heat EA did put on them (no matter what they say to the counter).

Hah, I remember breaking this news to Martin and Emily at the pub last night. 3G is sodding awful in SE1.

Despite claiming that EA had little hand in it, unless BioWare were given complete autonomy with their projects, I don't think that's the case. It would probably have been a passive feeling of constraint, pushed by the odd sales chart and focus group.

For the rest of my gaming years, I will wonder what the Mass Effect trilogy could have been like if EA hadn't bought BioWare.

No, all you need to wonder is, what if Jennifer "Hamburger Helper" Hepler did not write the story or had any part of it?

I can tell you........a masterpiece.



I CALLED IT MONTHS BEFORE ME3 CAME OUT! The story and ending would be *****e! Everyone will have a problem with the continuity!


Please excuse the site i'm using

Speaking of which, getting GW2 soon.

    I don't think so, I thought the second one was better than the original for starters and that was made by EA/Bioware.

    I actually thought the MP was really well done in ME3 unlike a lot of other games where it's shoved in to boost sales.
    The mp for ME3 was really entertaining and felt like a good mix of Gears and Halo and has offered loads of free DLC since it has come out and given more entertainment well after it's release.

    I also felt that ending no matter if it was MS/EA would have still happend.

    It sounds like to me that the two of them have had enough of the gaming industry in general (just not EA) and don't like the way it's moving forward, which they accept is required in order to make money or for it to work as they are both moving on to totally different markets.
