As you may remember, Electronic Arts sent us a $200 check to test our "greed" as a promotion for Visceral Games' Dante's Inferno. And this is what happens when you cash it: EA then sends you a (fake) severed hand in a wooden box, of course.

The packaged arrived last week while I was in Tokyo, so for about five days the severed hand and its wooden home sat on my desk while my cats batted at it with their paws. The message is clear -- because we cashed the check and did this, we're destined for the Fourth Circle of Hell, Greed. The inside of the box reads: 

Foul Horder, The Fourth Circle of Hell Awaits

A hand that clutches gold cannot reach forth to help his fellow man. You have hoarded the wealth of the world and incurred the debt of greed, and the wages of your sin were paid by the innocent. For the wealth of one shall always come at the suffering of another.

We have to wonder, though -- what would we have gotten had we immediately donated the check to a charity, or simply didn't cash it at all?

If you happen to have EA Access, I highly recommend playing Garden Warfare

I keep forgetting about EA Access. Perhaps you can say the same. It's a $4.99-per-month service for Xbox One that gives unlimited access to select games from you-know-who along with other perks like early demos. One of my fav...more

DICE: Battlefield 4's bad launch 'absolutely' damaged trust

I think it's nice that we've finally managed to hold EA accountable to something. Can its ripoff sports game releases be next? Well, I guess it's been DICE falling on the sword and profusely apologizing more than EA.&nbs...more
