It's a good thing tattoos can be removed nowadays (sort of).

I was thinking that there would be a certain humor if in 3 months one of them got let go and now they have a permanent reminder of that game they got fired/down sized from.

@SnarlingWolf Their both CEO's so chance of that happening is unlikely. Bioware will close shop first.

CEOs get booted all the time, and companies close up shop or are restructured all the time, especially when owned by another company.

EA's latest venture with a MMO (WAR), a studio they purchased (Mythic) and a CEO promoted to EA VP (Mark Jacobs) ended up with the game allowed to die a long dead in maintenance mode, the dude getting the sack, and the studio being "restructured", a.k.a cannibalized.

future is bright for BioWare...............wait, no.......

@(Unverified) : if SW:TOR fails as hard as WAR, they'll be out on the street. I don't think that's very likely though (although, of course, pre-orders and launch numbers are no guarantee of success - WAR had those too)

Nah. Not many Sci Fi IP's. Everything taken except for Babylon 5 and that IP is already licensed out. Sci Fi is not strong enough to survive without a strong tie-in.

SOE and Blizzard might do something but that's about it.

i think you are placing the blame in the wrong direction. you have angst at developers for not creating mostly directionless sandbox MMO's. your angst should be directed at the majority of gamers that dislike directionless sandbox MMO's. there will always be directionless sandbox MMO's for people who like being bored. but just because they are not popular doesn't mean it's the industry's or developers faults.

Yep, it's just like WoW in space, sure is buddy. Just like it. Pretty much an exact copy.

/sarcasm

The TOR hate just makes me laugh nowadays.

I hope that they don't come to regret that eyesore, but... I guess it's good they have that much faith it their game?

@awitelintsta Eyesore? I think it's a pretty cool design. Doctor Zeschuks one did turn out a bit better I'd say, though.

@Lafajet It'll probably look better in a couple years when it fades.

I'm glad I reached a point in adulthood where I realized that I like things and others may have different view points about things I like and they can have their opinion.
I also realized yelling on the internet about why their opinions are dumb just made me look like a huge douche because opinions and facts are different.

I'm glad I grew up.

Am I the only one who thinks getting a tattoo makes you look idiotic?

You are not the only one. My particular fav is the "tramp stamp". Those nursing homes' are going to be filled with some hot grannies someday.
