All These Sweet EA Titles And Not An Online Pass In Sight
You know, at the beginning of this night if you told me that out of three press conferences, the one by Electronic Arts would be the best so far (subjective, of course), I’d have laughed in your face and secretly hoped you were exactly correct.
Since EA abolished their online passes, I’ve been finding it a little difficult to maintain this stance of not liking them as much as I actually do.

You know, like that girl you just never stop loving, or– Uhm, where were we?
Throughout EA’s press conference, sure they spent a considerable amount of time talking about shooters and sports, they’re Electronic Arts, if they don’t do it then Activision might start their own Press Conference to do it for them, but it was some genuinely interesting and rewarding viewing.
We got gameplay. For games that we want. No bullshitting, no silly CGI teases, no promises of more at a future date.
We got Star Wars: Battlefront III. (Okay this was a tease, but it was a pretty epic one, am I right?)
We got Dragon Age III: Inquisition. (Morrigan, I have missed you so.)
We got Mirror’s Edge 2. (Welcome back, Faith. The world was so dull without you around.)
We got Garden Warfare. (Motherfucker.)
And the best part is, it all looks great, it all looks fun, it all works without a single online pass around. Good going, EA.
But would you mind explaining why there were so many Xbox One exclusives at your press conference? Is there something we need to know?
