EA’s CEO Leaves Battlefield after Maddening Crysis with SimCity 3 - Ep 57

Are these EA puns doing it for anyone? Because we could always find a way to throw Dead Space 3 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter references in there as well. All jokes aside, EA has been in a publicity tail spin that throwing the CEO into the furnace seemed to be the only way they could allay the fears of the stockholders that things are indeed in control. But are they really? (Culture, EA, Industry, John Riccitiello, SimCity)

They just need to get back to promoting developers and game makers as their "reason for being" and start giving back to the consumers that have been supporting them for the past two decades.

If you are out there and listening, EA, where's my M.U.L.E., Sled Storm and Road Rash? My wallet's just waiting for you to stop chasing Call of Duty with every release and start getting back to the business of publishing great games again.
