      Wow, what's up with the shitheads of EA..
      They get enough money, why would they buy Valve.

      Fuck EA. Valve needs to buy EA. We'd see much better games then.

        Unfortunately this sort of thing has been going on between the big two. Activision and EA. They spend ridiculous amounts of money buying up all these smaller companies and try to make those companies loyal fan base pay an arm and a leg to keep playing the games they love. Unfortunately, they're also some of the biggest pushers of putting out partial games, and making people pay for "expansions" and calling them a DLC with new content when it should have been part of the game in the first place for free. COD and BF3 are prime examples of that, purchasing DLC's for maps and other items while preventing users of making their own maps.

        It's disappointing to see some really great companies with awesome staff and customer support get bought out by these two, and get turned into cash cows with very little interest in the player.

            If EA ever gets to the "negotiation" stage of this, I am going to cut somebody.

                Valve would fuck it up. They even fuck up their own games.
