“People Would Be Jaw-Dropping Surprised By How Well EA Treats Indie Developers,” Says A Way Out Dev

EA microtransactions loot boxes

EA doesn’t have the best reputation at this point, with many considering the company to be the evil corporation of gaming. This is due to the fact that they roll out basically the same sports games each and every year and riddle their other games with microtransactions. However, one developer is claiming that they aren’t as evil as you may think.

This comes from A Way Out director Josef Fares, who recently spoke with VG247. He said that he “would love to release some internal emails. I think people would be jaw-dropping surprised if they saw the internal emails – at least the way I’m being treated by EA. Super good support.” It was also revealed that they give 100% of the profits of the indie games it publishes to the developers, which is good to hear.

He goes on to say “I know nobody believes this. I say this all the time, every publisher f***s up at some point – Microsoft, Nintendo, I don’t care who. And here’s the thing, when you’re in the industry people jump around all the time. It’s all bullshit. The only thing we should care about is good games.”

While it’s true that all publishers make mistakes, I think it’s pretty safe to say that EA has made more mistakes than most. It has tried to turn things around in recent years by trying to shake up their sports game formula and put more emphasis on indie games like Unravel, but their use of microtransactions and loot boxes have diminished that effort greatly recently.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
