Default The Real Effect of th Blizzard Merger

I am posting to cut through all the BS and tell let you guys know what the Activision/Blizzard merger really means.

It means that nothing will change with regards to Blizzard Entertainment Inc's operations.

It also means that some company with a less than excellent track record will acquire the Blizzard moniker. It means that over time some company outside of Blizzard Entertainment Inc will sully the Blizzard name we all associate with great games. It will deflate the pride of Blizzard employees as normal everyday people forget or fail to differentiate the distinction between "Activision Blizzard" and "Blizzard Entertainment".

That's all there is to it.

Less than excellent?

Activision is top dog at the moment, overtaking EA in annual gross for a first time in maybe 6 years. Perhaps you're only focussing on Activision's PC endeavours, but they also run a tight console business.

Here's an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Quote:
"... it is now one of the largest third party video game publishers in the world, so far being the top publisher of 2007 in the U.S."

F.E.A.R was not a shitty game, and it was on the PC. And also, Tony Hawk was a great skateboard series. Proskater 3 was perfection when it came out. Activision will NOT sully Blizz's name. Life will go on. Get a grip.

And there's a sticky for this! Why a seperate thread???

Obama has won. The seas of change are flooding the streets- a deluge of possibility, a monsoon of opportunity, a literal tsunami of inspiration. We're talking hope. And the only thing left to do is to put on some swimming trunks, maybe a pair of goggles, and just riiiide the wave...

And a major pox on that bastard Jeph Loeb. Everything you touch dies.

Ah sh***...This is like Westwood merging with EA all over again.
At first, nothing had really changed there either...but it did eventually.

Also, get ready for some n00bs bashing Activision for Blizzard's games being "ruined", etc. Even if Activision really won't even remotely affect those games' development. Bashers will always find companies to blame other than the one in charge of making the game.
