Female hockey players in NHL? Fine, it’s create a player, whatever. Worse case scenario, I might pop wood watching some random girl beat the shit out of my buddy’s LA King’s.
Take the Def Jam series, remove everything good about Fight for NY and replace it with DJ scratching and probably kill what could have been one of the greatest fighting games of all time? Sure, maybe next time.
I could go on and on with shit that would make me facepalm, that EA has brought to the table. But today, they went too fucking far.
EA is remaking one of my all time favourite games. Normally, this is cause for celebration. But Duke Nukem taught us that waiting decades for a sequel can be a bad thing. But this is no mere lame underdeveloped game. This is SYNDICATE. And it’s coming out next year.
Why so angry, you might ask? I’ll tell you. Well, aside from Peter Molyneux having NO FUCKING INPUT WHATSOEVER, it’s being made into a FPS. Seriously. They took a four man team based RTS style game, and made yet another FPS. I love FPS games, don’t get me wrong. But WHY change this. Syndicate was a game where each level held MILLIONS of ways to possibly complete the objectives, and have a blast while doing it. And you’re going to change that into a lame version of Deus Ex.
First X-Com going from a similar style game (turn based based 3/4 isometric view with RPG elements and customization) into a fucking FPS with stupid lame uber alien weapons. And now you take my beloved Syndicate and pretty much assure that it will be in a bargain bin in less than a year. I waited TWENTY YEARS FOR THIS YOU BLOODTHIRSTY COCKSUCKING GREEDY FUCKBAGS.
I now await news of a fucking Tetris flight sim and King’s Quest IX to be puzzle fighter, just to finish the complete and total destruction of my childhood.
