Forums - Gaming Discussion - EA stocks are on the rise again, did all the outrage actually matter?

Not surprising.

Gaming forums are rarely an indication of performance and sales.

If that was the case Call of Duty titles would sell less than a million and titles like HZD and Cuphead would sell 20+ million (as it should be).

I bought SWB2. It is a fun title and it is not like we have many Star Wars options currently.

Okay, but I prefer the Ray Harryhausen release:

      

OT - EA didn't get any of my money.

Oh well.
I never buy EA games. So I don't care.



I LOVE ICELAND!

It’s ok it’s good their stock goes up. A lot of ETFs and mutual funds have EA so for their sake I hope EAs stock goes up. I hate Apple but through my etfs I invest in them so I don’t want Apple stock to go down either.



Internet outrage is usually complete bollocks.

Does this have to do anything with the stocks? No, it does not.

You just needed to find a way to make the worst post in the thread again.

My post addressed a potential reason why EA's stock is back on the rise, yours added nothing...maybe its your post that is the worst?  I mean if you want me to spell it out for you...

FIFA 18 is far exceeding what was sold on the Wii U 

Wow such achievement

 

 

OP here's the thread about the stock fall

As I mentioned a few minutes ago in a comment against COD and its never-ending popularity. The sheep outnumber the intellects 10:1. You can bash your head against the wall, call the FBI... scream bloody murder to anyone within earshot. It won't matter. Evolution has its own plans lol.

I'll never buy anything from EA again, even from the discount bin, and there's a small number of like minded people out there. There are so many great games from more scrupulous companies. It's far from an actual sacrifice, just an easy-to-make decision. I'm not surprised there's been no real change in consumer habits after the fallout. In 2014, it was revealed Subway was feeding it's customers bread "with a side of chemicals said to be used in yoga mats and shoe soles." A substance called azodicarbonamide. For years. To, and I quote: " Make their bread 'More bread like'. A massive betrayal of consumer trust. Yet people still line up like drones for Subway sandwiches, even in a food court environment, where there are dozens of other options, because *shrugs shoulders*. I haven't been back since, and never will be. Fuck EA, fuck Activision, and fuck Subway.

I know this is off-topic but why does the use of chemical compounds that are applicable beyond just being a food additive gross you out so much ? 

Food dyes are used in cosmetics/cleaning products, butylated hydroxyanisole are used in rubber, propyl gallate can be used in adhesives, TBHQ is found in potato or other processed foods yet it's also used for varnish and there's silicon dioxide which is just straight up sand that we consume in powdered foods ...

The ingredient in question, azodicarbonamide ,poses potential health risks, not only in and of itself, but in two of the substances created in it's breakdown, urethane, and semicarbazide. The use of azodicarbonimide as a food additive has been banned in most of the world, with Canada and the U.S. being 2 exceptions among only 5 that still allow it's use. I would rather such an additive not be present in the food I eat, and avoid it, along with stuff like BHT whenever possible, which is most of the time. It doesn't freak me out to the point where I couldn't eat food that contained it though. It's a lazy answer to a fairly complex issue, but I hope that will do.

There is always the chance that this specific poison counters other poisons in your food. Are you willing to take that risk?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I'm more concerned with the font in the post to the point that I re-typed it out. The only thing I copied and pasted was azodicarbonamide, yet it's peppered with different sized words throughout. As to your question: I never thought about that! I'll have to hunker down with a pack of cigarettes and some vodka and do some research on poisons counteracting other poisons.

 

The font thing happened again. Hmm.
