    After yesterday's announcement that the BioDocs left the sinking ship retired from BioWare to pursue other interests (beer etc.) General Manager Aaryn Flynn made a blog-post explaining that BioWare still thrives and prospers.

    He needs to swap his first and last names around. Mr Flynn Aaryn could be an alcoholic detective from a noir film, or the guy from 'Under a Killing Moon'. Would suit his twitter feed.

    Yup, prospers so much it's shedding crucial employees like there is no tomorrow. It was way too prosperous for them, I guess. :salute:

    He is not a loser. He just shows corporate values in America and what you need to do to get to the top, because there were other people to choose from. Like people who have passion for games, quality, love their fans and are competent. Flynn is neither...

    Heh, every new series Bioware has tried to make since they were bought by EA has been canceled because production ramps up on either DA or ME and they need more people on them, so they end up pulling them from the other teams, scuttling said projects before they can gain enough inertia. Though I suppose the eve of a new console generation is the best opportunity to succeed at such a thing.

    Anybody who's more creative than me want to make a Bio version of this?

    he's right though. those guys are fucking morons. you have to be a moron to believe that bioware would amount to anything more than it does now if only it would get rid of flynn and hepler.

    I gotta say, though, there's got to be something seriously fucking wrong with you if you're an exec in (apparently?) fourties and your responses can be summed up by "Fuck you". All jokes and stereotypes aside - that's a good show of being unprofessional as fuck.

    I'm glad BioWare is in good hands! :lol:

    I'm very glad they are gone. It's like a final stake through the corpse. The Dragon Age / Mass Effect franchise will continue on forever as EA games, which they were already indistinguishable from. This is what happens when money is your only value. The name Bioware doesn't really mean anything any more. Just a brand that EA purchased.

    This is EA sir,
    I thank you for calling, how are you,
    I'm sorry, I am just an Indian
    BioWare Studios?
    They do what they must
    Because they can -
    For the good of all of us
    (Who have a job at EA)

    But there's no sense crying over the shit we make
    Take a look at Casey, he's got fat from cupcakes
    And the game's robbed of fun,
    But the gamers are dumb
    They'll preorder our next gay romance

    We're just making money
    We're just being sincere right now
    Even though you're whining
    On our forums
    And sending us cupcakes
    And being evil trolls across that line
    As you troll we're glad we fleeced you!

    Now this chain of bannings makes a beautiful Rhine
    And we're forced out of beta, you'll be Jedi online!
    And our profit has turned
    Think of all new jets boss's earned,
    From you retards that buy gay romance.

    Don't try to leave us!
    We'll torture your twi'lek on a rack
    (Not unless you come on back to help her)
    Look, Greg and Ray're gone!
    They're gonna enjoy their lives,
    You rubes.
    Anyway, this cash's great,
    It's so low-effort it's free!
    Look at me still talking,
    When there's sales pitch to do
    When I look at our outline, I'm glad I'm not you
    We've got tech support to run
    There's modding to be done
    For the people that are plain dumb
    We'll sell you stories that make you dumb
    You will be buying them cause you're dumb
    And all the characters there are quite dumb
    It's like our writers all took a dump
    And you'll be playing this, you are dumb.
    And when you're dying, you'll still be dumb.
    Still be dumb!
    Still be dumb.
