Battlefield Hardline review: Line of duty

I’m sick of playing the same first-person shooter campaign year after year. No matter how many explosions go off or which celebrity tries to take over the world, I just don’t think I could handle another world war.

That’s why Battlefield Hardline is my favorite console shooter on the market right now — it’s a different beast entirely. More →

EA exec thinks video games are still too complex for most people

Are you the kind of person who thinks video games have been getting progressively dumbed down to appeal to more casual audiences? If so then you’re out of luck because one EA exec thinks they can get a whole lot dumber. More →

EA comes up with an ingeniously sleazy new way to milk money from gamers

The freemium game industry just took a twist for the worse — although you can’t help but appreciate the ingenuity of developers in this particular case. EA has decided that players will need gas for their car races inside Need for Speed: No Limits, and the company will sell it to you via in-app purchases. More →

EA’s awesome Xbox One subscription service just keeps getting better

EA’s awesome Xbox One subscription service just keeps getting better

EA shocked everyone last week with the introduction of EA Access, a subscription service for Xbox One that offers discounts on EA games, early access to unreleased titles and a selection of free games for members. It all seemed to good to be true, especially coming from the company that unleashed the nightmarish Dungeon Keeper and the similarly awful Sim City relaunch onto the world, but as EA shares more details about the new service, it just keeps sounding better.

PS4 Vs. Xbox One EA

Here’s why you can’t get EA’s awesome game subscription service on the PS4

Here’s why you can’t get EA’s awesome game subscription service on the PS4

When EA announced its new EA Access subscription program for the Xbox One, we were surprised because it sounds like a pretty good deal. Given EA’s past antics, we actually expected the program involved asking gamers to pay an extra $5 per month just for the privilege of playing games on Xbox Live that they’d already purchased. But no — EA Access actually will give you the ability to play games like Madden NFL 15, Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 even if you’ve never bought the games themselves for just $5 per month or $30 for a full year subscription.

Dragon Age Inquisition Battlefield Hardline Delays

Two of the biggest games of the year just received worrying delays

Two of the biggest games of the year just received worrying delays

Anyone who bought Battlefield 4 when it released last year could tell you just how broken it was out of the box. EA simply didn’t put enough time into what should have been a massive blockbuster, and it cost them dearly. Now, just months from the first real holiday season of the new generation, EA announced in its quarterly financial report that Battlefield: Hardline isn’t going to make its October release date. In fact, it’s not even going to go on sale this year. More →

EA Dungeon Keeper Review

EA exec mounts a ridiculous defense of his company’s shamelessly sleazy practices

EA exec mounts a ridiculous defense of his company’s shamelessly sleazy practices

As we’ve noticed in the past, EA is a widely disliked company among many gamers not just because they make mistakes but that its executives can never own up to their mistakes in a remotely honest manner. Case in point: In an interview with Games Industry International, EA mobile boss Frank Gibeau admits that EA botched the launch of Dungeon Keeper for mobile phones and tablets but he offers the single most ridiculous explanation for why it failed.

EA exec: ‘Core gamers’ have only themselves to blame if they hate freemium games

Is EA itching to reclaim the crown from Comcast for the title of America’s worst company? That’s the impression we get from a GamesIndustry interview with EA COO Peter Moore, who dismissed concerns about the gaming industry’s move toward a new “freemium” model where games are free to download but can be miserable to play unless you pony up for in-game purchases.
