    What can I say - EA's gonna EA.

    While I'm happy to see EA get shit on - the current incarnation certainly deserves it - I'm not bothered by their shenanigans overmuch. I haven't bought an EA game in years and I don't see anything coming up in the near future that could change that. I'm just going to continue playing indie games and hope that at least some of the recent Kickstarter projects turn out well. EA, ActiBlizz and Ubisoft can go die in a fire for all I care.

    I wouldn't put off limitless human idiocy quite yet.

    So their Dragon Age 3 hype train is already rolling, I see.

    No. Average Kotaku reader detected.

    John Rigatoni's soul is optional DLC which he opted out of.

    I dunno, he's giving me more of a "Hannibal Lecter" vibe than a "Dead inside" one.

    Eh, I still hate Kotick and Activision so much more. But then I don't buy games from either company...

    EA is the King Midas of shit. On the off-chance that an EA title seemed worth playing, I'd have to install Origin in order to do so, which is the electronic equivalent of injecting oneself with herpes.

    Fucking fuck, EA fucking sucks. I truly hate that company and the people in charge of it. It's quite rare for me to experience an emotion quite so juvenile as hatred for a business, but it's undeniable. Playing computer games is one of a handful of hobbies I truly enjoy, and EA is a destructive, cancerous tumor perched atop the industry, secreting shit-smelling ichor that drips down all over everything. Or perhaps a more appropriate metaphor would be a nasty shit-smelling hobo who stares and touches your buttocks periodically while you try to enjoy fucking your wife.

    Of course, the people who are ultimately responsible are the people who keep buying their shit. If I witness a human extinction event within my lifetime, my last breath will be taken with a smile on my face, comforted by the knowledge that these people will never be alive again.

    Well, if you really loved her, you probably would still love her after that, though you might also figure it is best to cut relations. Still, I would say that loving the EA of today would be more akin to loving the alien parasite who ate your girlfriend's brain and now lives inside her corpse.

    I don't buy much on GOG. M&M, D&D, Fallout, Troika and Witcher games are about it. And then random free shit like Duke Nukem or Ultima 4

    I would preemptively kill anyone smiling at me like that without second thought.

    Better safe than sorry.

    Fair point, I did mean new games - even so, I don't think I've got more than a few EA games on GOG (can't be arsed to check all of them at the moment).

    At leas Kotick's smile looks genuine. I'm honestly considering the possibility that John is a robot.

    Yeah, not really feeling that smile argument. They're both evil fucks, but at the very least EA had came out with few new franchises over last 5 years.

    Between Origin, Bullfrog, Westwood, Sierra and Arcanum I'm probably worth both a CoD Elite and a Battlefield Premium so far. Just when I thought I was out...

    He looks tired, really. It's the kind of sad smile you'd expect to see on a farmer's face after this season's crops have been ruined by hail. Maybe he knows EA is why no one can have nice things...
