Electronic Arts may be voted the worst company in America, but that doesn't stop gamers flocking into its arms and nestling against its hairy, masculine, welcoming chest. In the two weeks since EA launched Battlefield Premium, the service has pulled in 800,000 subscribers.

At any rate, this success is fueling EA's desire to put "premium" services into a lot more games, so expect to see it crop up everywhere now.

This Destiny trailer makes me want to get my ass to Mars

In Destiny, the tops of long-lost skyscrapers poke through the surface of Mars which means, presumably, we'll have to work our way down through them to reach whatever lurks below. I'm not expecting to find anything good down...more
