  1. DiGiorno Pizza Gets In On #WhyIStayed Domestic Abuse Hashtag With Admittedly “Awful and Careless” PR Gaffe

    All the no in the world.

    Oof. The #WhyIStayed hashtag, if you're unfamiliar, has been a place for Twitter to examine issues of domestic abuse after video of (now-former) Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice beating his then-fiancée Janay Palmer hit the web. DiGiorno Pizza very much not realize that when they tweeted the above implication that you would stay with an abusive partner because they have pizza. To their credit, DiGiorno immediately deleted the tweet and apologized, both en masse and to individual users:

  2. The Sims 4 Will Not Have Pools or Toddlers in Base Games, Says EA

    Maybe pools are too hard to animate?

    The Sims franchise has certainly changed a lot since its first game was released in late 2000. But according to EA, some of the latest innovations to Sims 4 are going to come at the expense of some of players' favorite past features, as well as an architectural staple that's been with the games since their inception.

  3. Titanfall Currently Free-To-Play on PC for 48 Hours

    Yeah, okay, but I still want that Optimus Prime DLC.

    Despite being the distributor for some of the bestselling games out today -- Dragon AgeMass Effect, and The Sims, to name a few -- their digital online store Origin doesn't exactly have the best reputation compared to similar services like Steam. But you know what would be a really great way to convince people to jump on the Origin train? Giving everybody a free 48-hour taste of their games, starting with Titanfall. Smart move, EA. Smart move.

  5. About Damn Time: BioWare/EA Goes Gender Neutral for Dragon Age: Inquisition‘s Box Art

    Here Be Dragons

    The realm of video game box art can be fairly dominated by bestubbled white guys in armor carrying big guns or bigger swords, even in games where the main character's physical appearance is determined entirely by the player from a wide variety of options. Even for titles like BioWare's Mass Effect, famous for having an incredibly popular female version of the main character Shepard, the face on the box is the male version. Lobbying by ME fans did eventually result in the inclusion of (the affectionately dubbed) FemShep in a launch trailer and collectors edition box art, and it seems that BioWare has taken the idea a step further for its newest RPG, Dragon Age: Inquisition. As confirmed by the game's creative director Mike Laidlaw, the figure on the official box cover was intended to be gender neutral, to better represent the diversity of the game's character options. Previously in Dragon Age

  6. Looking Forward to EA’s Free-to-Play Command & Conquer? You Might Want to Sit Down for This

    We guess it's also free-to-not-play.

    Command & Conquer is a popular real-time-strategy franchise, though clearly not popular enough for EA to go ahead with the free-to-play version it had been working on. They've sacked the project after a disappointing round of alpha testing.

  8. New Tetris Mobile Game Takes a Page From Pokemon, Looks Awesome

    Gotta fit 'em all!

    It almost goes without saying now that the two most addictive things to come out of portable gaming are the brick-racking frenzy of Tetris, and the monster-collecting of Pokemon. So it seems odd that it's taken this long for a developer to mash these ideas up, but that's just what EA's done with recently announced game Tetris Monsters.

  10. EA Snaps Up Domains Up to Battlefield20.com, So Rock, Paper, Shotgun Grabs Battlefield21.com

    If you love games where you pretend to kill your friends and strangers over the Internet, then you're probably down with EA's Battlefield series. Battlefield 4 is coming out this Fall, but EA has plans for even more sequels to the game. Kind of a lot of them, in fact.  They recently registered Battlefield domains ending in numbers 13-20, so gaming site Rock Paper Shotgun did them exactly one better and registered Battlefield21.com.
