That was an interesting read.

I could see Activision taking over, but not yet.

Something has to be done though, Activision has become more money-hungry (As seen with the MW2 Map Pack) and it will only get worse.

Funny as always! I'm always amazed you ability to write something obviously fictitious but also entirely believable at the same time!

I demand a nostalgic reverie about your dis-functional childhood that somehow obliquely refers to current events in gaming! Is that too much to ask?

What the hell kind of whisleblower gives them ideas like that.
Then again, if the map pack sells well, they'll probably think they can get away with a scheme like that.

Activision has gone evil, Ubisoft has gone evil...

I still can't get over the fact that EA aren't the bad guys anymore. Up is down, left is right, black is white! I don't know what to think anymore!

Somebody hold me.

Poe's Law, paraphrased: "It is utterly impossible to parody Activision in such a way that will not have even a passing resemblance to a genuine article."

So sad.

So it's gone from EA being the bad guy company to Activision. Great.
Remember, people at EA are actively fixing their reputation now. They really do want to switch their image from "faceless corporation that is the enemy of everything holy" to "just another faceless corporation".

WEll, as long as they don't touch the game franchises I hold dearest, I won't demand their heads on a silver platter. ;_;

CODwhistleblower is horribily misinformed. StarCraft II is not an Activision product. Blizzard has the financial mallet known as WoW, so Kotick cannot touch them (no matter how much he would like to). :p

I laughed whilst reading this article, that alone gives it the thumbs-up from me.

I also liked the way Marion exaggerated Activision's past exploits and behaviours to induce humour, yet maintain an undercurrent of seriousness that portrays a very scarily possible future; that is, Activision's continuous price-hiking and increasing control.

Yes but if memory serves Blizzard is a subsidiary of Activision, though I may be wrong.

Sorry, not even close.
