Achievement unlocked: EA escapes a third year as the ‘Worst Company in America’

It’s still up for debate whether EA took anything away from being named the worst company in America for two years straight, but the company’s victory (?) lap is finally ending. Consumerist has revealed that EA lost out to Time Warner Cable in the first round of voting for this year’s ‘Worst Company in America’ bracket, forcing video game fans to direct their rage elsewhere for the remainder of the competition.

Hackers turn EA server into phishing site for Apple IDs

Some ingenious hackers decided to put an Apple ID phishing site where users would expect to find it least: on a trusted website such as EA.com, Internet security firm Netcraft has discovered. As a result of the breach, unsuspecting EA customers were redirected to the fake Apple site – which looks just like the real thing, by the way – and lured into giving away their Apple ID credentials.  More →

SimCity Offline Mode Release Date

More than a year too late, EA does the right thing with SimCity

More than a year too late, EA does the right thing with SimCity

More than a year ago, developer Maxis and publisher EA launched a refresh of SimCity, one of the iconic games of the 1990s that was a cherished staple of early computer gaming. However, like a lot of things EA touches, the new SimCity was a disaster from day one. The game’s always-on digital rights management system that forced players to play the game online quickly crashed EA’s servers and made the game unplayable during its launch week. More →

GOG.com helps gamers get revenge against EA over Dungeon Keeper fiasco

Although Steam dominates the digital game download conversation, there are plenty of other services that offer deals and exclusives that Steam doesn’t. GOG.com is one of those services, best known for its focus on classic PC games — games that might have been forgotten if not for some deep discounts and updated compatibility. The latest promotion is more than just a good deal though; it looks suspiciously like a timely jab as well. More →

EA Sleazy Microsotransactions Criticism

EA’s ability to enrage its own customers is a rare talent

EA’s ability to enrage its own customers is a rare talent

For the past two years, Electronic Arts has been named the “Worst Company in America” by Consumerist readers… and it stands a damn good chance of winning the award again this year. Every time this happens, it sparks a round of self-righteous, finger-wagging lectures about how EA doesn’t deserve to be named America’s worst company since it hasn’t, say, caused a calamitous environmental disaster or aided and abetted massive financial fraud. But while it’s literally true that EA’s alleged crimes against consumers aren’t on par with those of BP or JPMorgan, it also undersells EA’s remarkable achievement: That is, it’s managed to make people incredibly angry by selling them video games.

SimCity Offline Mode Coming Soon

EA finally looks ready to own up to the SimCity disaster

It’s been nearly a year since SimCity was released, but Maxis finally confirmed on Sunday that the game will be receiving an offline mode “as soon as possible.” The SimCity debacle has been one of the strangest gaming catastrophes in recent history, filled with misinformation, botched launches and an angry mob of gamers refusing to settle for a product that didn’t live up to expectations. By the time SimCity was back in gamers’ good graces and most of the major issues had been resolved, the game had become all but irrelevant. More →

‘Need for Speed: Rivals,’ another high profile release, skipping Wii U

It has already been a very busy month for Nintendo, between the incredibly positive sales figures of the Wii U and the retirement of the original Wii, but October isn’t over yet. In an interview with The Sixth Axis, “Need for Speed: Rivals” creative director Craig Sullivan said that Rivals would not be making its way to the Wii U after “Need for Speed: Most Wanted” failed to sell many copies on Nintendo’s next-generation console.
