Finally I'm getting some use out of those boilerplate affixes companies always paste at the bottom of their press releases. I now know what a Nordic Games is. Think this company would be more interested in doing smaller games. Interesting development. Hopefully it won't result in a bunch of bullshit that makes everyone sad.

Apparently bought up a bunch of Game stores last May.

And it totally is...well, not the same company, but it's the same guy who ran this games retailer that operated in the 90's I used to see ads for all the time.

Will this be streamed live or archived? I really hope so.

Also wondering this.

I've been told it will be recorded, but not streamed. Apparently the internet is funky in that room. Small chance of phone streaming. I wouldn't expect to see any footage until they return. But who knows, sometimes magic happens.

I vote Jeff Green.

The game being broken is as bad as it was predictable, but what I think is really terrible about this whole situation is that EA's refusing refunds.

Your game is broken, does not work, give refunds, you assholes.

Good on Amazon by the way.

The Battlefield 4 China leak was given some credibility when DICE revealed there is indeed an Air Superiority mode in End Game.

So all this is probably true.

Lasgana: BF4

Lasgana: Coming October 23rd, 2013

Lasgana: development just started, expected to be done in 1 yr [Nirolak's Note: Since this is the one likely to elicit the most "this is fake" notes, I feel I should elaborate. Given some later points (like already have an internal demo), this seems to refer to EA's normal two year development cycle of a one year pre-production cycle with ~30-40 people and then ballooning up to 150-300 people to make the game after most things are prototyped and planned out. Visceral, BioWare, and a fair number of publishers outside EA also operate this way since it allows you to have multiple projects without cyclical layoffs due to scaling down in pre-production and scaling up in production. For example, during the downtime between Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 3, DICE's spare staff worked on making Medal of Honor's multiplayer and helping to build Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit. As to what the bulk of DICE's staff worked on prior to this going into production, it's probably either a second project or, once again, other EA games.]

Bears mention that Hammerpoint is still selling the game on the official site. Not sure what's up with the deceit to honesty ratio there.

What is the name "The War Z" even supposed to mean, other than being shockingly close to "World War Z?" This game seems like it's in the same category as Transmorphers or Rock Revolution, and other shit products designed to confuse idiots and grandparents.

They do have some degree of proper justification for it since their previous game was called WarInc. The "The" is flummoxing though. I can only assume it's a superstretchy way of also creating a link to The Walking Dead. Or it's just Sergey Titov being derpy with his English as usual. He's winner.
