This is an unforseen travesty.

Back in the day (before 2005) EA was responsible for some of the greatest liscensed games ever made. (Lord of the Rings Two Towers and Return of the King) and some sweet shooters (Medal of Honor series). Now the pump out shitty games every few months. Nexxon pumps out shitty games every year.

This will not end well.

You'll have to buy new romance options with microtransactions, and all the starting romance options are fat homosexual tramps with gonorrhea.

Also, the endings will still suck.

All moral choices are locked. You need to buy the Paragon Pack of Renegade Pack to unlock them. And you got the ending where Shepard died in Mass Effect 2, no matter what you did. So you need to buy the "Shepard is alive." Expansion pack for $149.99.

I personally hate nexon their online games aren't all that great and get boring really fast. If EA agrees then I hope it's after they make Dead Space 3. :|

I... I... welcome that.
Only if it means we'll see MapleStory on a console. Or at least get some MapleStory Skylanders.

I think you've got it backwards....

EA used to pump out shitty game after shitty game after shitty game.... and it was only a matter of time before they accidentally made some games that did not suck.... and as those games exploded off the shelves, they made more money.... bought more companies.... and repeated the process....

Now EA owns damn near everything... and its weird that Nexon would buy them.... cuz i figured EA was much bigger than Nexon...

Either way..... EA games is like the Borg.... you will be assimilated.... and resistance is futile.

No...NO IT'S NOT POSSIBLE! I think EA is bad and all, but they do publish some great games.

If it means that EA can get started on making baseball games again I'm all for it. After MVP Baseball 2005, the only good baseball game I could think of is MLB 11 The Show...
Really though, other than Baseball, Burnout 3 was all I really liked by the company. Forget EA.

Wait, what? I thought Nexon was just a small company who made MapleStory, how can they buy EA?

.....Nexon has money? To BUY entire companies? And one of them is EA?

I thought Nexon was just some shoddy company that made "Meh" Free to play games like Maplestory and Combat Arms.
I guess all those microtransactions do stack up to wealth.

Either way, it doesn't matter.
EA's a cancer of gaming. Nexon's a "Meh" company. Nothing will change.

Next thing we know Zynga buys EA and makes every one of their games only exclusive to Facebook.

This sucks.

Nexon Net Income:

25.76 billion JPY
371.95 billion KRW
331.87 million USD
250.39 million EUR
210.04 million GBP

They make quite the chunk of change, compared to EA's Net Income:

US$-276 million

Yes that's a negative. EA could very well accept the offer.


To protect the world from devastation.

Just for clarity, Nexon Net Income is 1.65 Billion USD. Which is equal too 1 metric fuckton of cash.
