Sim City [5]

I'm sure I'm not breaking the news that EA botched it again by taking Will Wright's amazing game design and making it all but unplayable with their shitty DRM. I swear that Zenga and EA have discovered some sort of dark magic which allows them to purchase beloved games, absolutely destroy them, and still make profit.

This guy pestered them until he got his money back. I hope more people who made the mistake of giving EA their money get the same opportunity.

Isn't it Zynga?

EA is a very effective corporate machine.

Evil by any other name would smell just as vile.

As a side note, I digressed by reading several other Consumerist articles, and I'm now hovering somewhere between nausea and depression.

If you want to feel even worse, read about the game "The War Z". An obvious rip off of Day Z, a mod of Arma 2 (which will be released as a stand alone at some point). They're nasty evil things..
