EA Has Already Managed to Ruin The Sims 4

6d ago ... Last month, Electronic Arts and Maxis issued a statement informing us that when The Sims 4 launches in September this year, swimming pools and toddlers will not be included.

These are just the games that, in my opinion, were the reason my SNES needed a buddy to sit next to on those cold lonely nights. So with that here's my list. SE...

EA Support and Their Nonsense

603d ago ... † Warning: the following blog post contains a strong opinion and a minor rant. It should be taken light-heartedly. I don't tend to make a habit out of complaining about trivial occurrences, but lately I've found myself growing exhausted with Electronic Arts and their individual "professional support" team.

A Brief Insight into How EA Ruined The Sims

769d ago ... It goes without saying that The Sims is one of the most popular and best selling computer games of all time, but it saddens me to finally admit that the franchise is falling and falling hard. In 2009, some time after The Sims 3 was released in the same year, I noticed a significant decline in quality. In the subsequent years leading up to the present, I noticed a vast increase in nonsensical oc...

Tired of this Schmitt Episode I: The Obvious Menace

798d ago ... The beginning of this year has already started out quite poorly for infamous game publisher Electronic Arts (EA) in regards to popularity.

I'm Starting a Mutiny Against EA Sports

1409d ago ... After boycotting Electronic Arts' Madden franchise for what seems like half a decade, yesterday I made the decision to give the series one last chance to win back both my support and hard earned dollars. The verdict? It failed, and failed fucking hard. For anyone unfamiliar with the series, here's a quick history lesson; a paragraph forged through the fusing of Wikipedia facts and a few thou...
