Report: Activision may have paid 'tens of millions' to West, Zampella

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1842 days, 14 hours, 40 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 31, 2012 9:12:14 AM GMT
When ex-Infinity Ward employees Jason West and Vince Zampella settled their lawsuit with Activision, it was sudden, shocking, and most of all, secret. Activision paid out an undisclosed sum to West and Zampella just before a full trial was set to begin, and while it is expected the exact amount may never be made public, experts can still make an educated guess.

IronMonkey and Firemint merging into Firemonkeys, jungles burn across the world

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1848 days, 14 hours, 44 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 25, 2012 9:08:07 AM GMT
Electronic Arts is smooshing its two Aussie mobile developers together to form one studio known as Firemonkeys. IronMonkey (Mass Effect Infiltrator, Dead Space) and Firemint (Flight Control, SPY mouse) combined now form "Australia's largest game development studio." Awkward. (more)

Bioware aims to reinvent Ultima with Ultima Forever

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1849 days, 15 hours, 19 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 24, 2012 8:32:51 AM GMT
Ultima Forever's announcement came as a surprise earlier this month: Bioware has apparently been working with Richard Garriott's old Ultima 4 property to create a new entry in EA's growing collection of free-to-play titles. But despite the big announcement, Ultima Forever has been steeped in mystery, leading to plenty of guessing and speculation about what it's going to be like. (more)

Wasteland 2 will include the original Wasteland

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1862 days, 15 hours, 56 minutes ago
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 7:56:16 AM GMT
While we imagine most who are eager to play Wasteland 2 have fond memories of playing the original RPG and might possibly still own it, InXile is still tossing it in free of charge with each copy of Wasteland 2. It is due in no small part to the aid of EA, the publisher of the original Wasteland. (more)

NCAA Football 13 review: Heisman pose

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1863 days, 17 hours, 30 minutes ago
Tuesday, July 10, 2012 6:22:10 AM GMT
EA Sports' latest in the NCAA Football series pays tribute to Heisman Trophy winners of the past. One name that stands out is quarterback Matt Leinart, former USC great and current NFL flop. Leinart's college career was magnificent, but he's since struggled at the professional level and has already landed with his third NFL team since he was drafted in 2006. By all accounts, his moment in the sun is sometimes overshadowed by his moments on the bench in recent years. (more)

"We are very pleased with the performance so far," EA Games' Patrick Soderlund told USA Today. Still, Soderlund exercised caution on the outlook for Premium.

Monday, June 11, 2012 6:26:17 AM GMT
UFC Undisputed 3 failed to break even – which triggered the sale of the UFC license to Electronic Arts – THQ representatives allegedly said during an E3 investor meeting. "THQ sought to exit its UFC contract as the most recent iteration fell short of its ≈2 million unit break-even point," a Wedbush Securities report claims. THQ has yet to confirm the report. (more)

Minecraft Creator Notch Says EA is Destroying Gaming

posted by Pedro CubiasPedro Cubias 1927 days, 17 hours, 26 minutes ago
Monday, May 07, 2012 6:25:37 AM GMT
Mojang is the perfect definition of "indie." The studio came out of nowhere and produced a PC game that's become so popular, that it's help reinvigorate the stagnant platform. Minecraft is not only innovative, but it's extremely "lite" and can be enjoyed by gamers of all ages. Even more, it's a pure independent title, meaning there's no publisher involved to steer the game towards a more lucrative route. (more)

Glassbox sets SimCity ablaze in latest trailer

Wednesday, May 02, 2012 6:26:47 AM GMT
In reality, fire is a mysterious force that takes what it pleases and threatens to devour us whole in our sleep. Within the confines of a video game, however, the flaming beast can be controlled. In EA Maxis' GlassBox engine powering the 2013 reboot of SimCity, it'll act as a danger to all around it – nearby structures will be in danger of catching fire and, without the aid of a local fire response station, eventually the whole town could burn down.

Crysis 3 Accidently Confirmed by EA's Origin

Thursday, April 12, 2012 7:22:00 AM GMT
Although Crysis 3 is expected to be formally announced in the Swedish edition of Game Reactor magazine, that hasn't stopped an Electronic Arts employee from hitting the "publish" button and exposing the details prematurely on Origin. Naturally the error was caught and the info removed, but not before a quick-draw NeoGAF user took a screenshot and posted it online for all Crysis fans to behold. (more)
