EA: Battlefield 4 was a victim of its own ambition

To put it bluntly, Battlefield 4 was broken when it came out. Everyone's accepted that fact, including EA itself. EA CEO Andrew Wilson recently chimed in to candidly say that Battlefield 4's shortcomings had to do with i...

Battlefield Hardline: First hands-on impressions photo
Battlefield Hardline: First hands-on impressions
by Dale North

I was pretty excited to be able to be the first to tell you about Battlefield Hardline, the new team up cops-and-robbers title from Visceral (Dead Space) and DICE. But trailer leaks, detail leaks, and even gameplay video leaks ruined the fun. I played the game several weeks ago and did my job to keep the secret! Too bad no one else did.

So you probably already know the idea behind Hardline: a sandbox that takes the mayhem of a Battlefield game but puts a crime revenge twist to it. It's a multiplayer cops and robbers game, two factions going at each other like a playable heist movie. It's as cool as it sounds.

Tuesday Newsday: Mortal Kombat Ecks, Sonic Boom fizzles, and Homefront: The Revolution
by Bill Zoeker

There's a hot drizzle of news leading up to E3, and Max is here to suck it down and spit it back at you! A sequel to Homefront is actually happening, for some reason. Ed Boon officiates the new MK as Mortal Kombat X (as in Ecks Vs. Sever). Sonic Boom isn't very impressive, surprising no one. Battlefield: Hardline had leak of beta footage. And many, many more stories, which Max will tell you if you watch this video instead of just reading about it.

Battlefield 3 is free to download on Origin photo
Battlefield 3 is free to download on Origin
by Jordan Devore

Electronic Arts' On the House program for Origin lets users download free games for a limited time and keep them. It is obviously a way to get the service installed on more computers, and it's EA so some people are going to complain about that, but I'm a fan of the promotion.

Past titles have included Dead Space and Plants vs. Zombies. Right now, through June 3, it's Battlefield 3. Go crash some jets, for me. (So I'm not the only one embarrassing himself.)
