Oh hai there, I'm Jed Whitaker, age 24 and I've been gaming for as long as I can remember. My first memories of gaming is Super Mario Land on the original GameBoy and Bubble Bobble on NES. I've owned every big name console that has came out in the past 20 years.
Non-video game wise, I'm a father to a wonderful 2 year old girl named Juliet, she loves me, and I love her, I guess that makes us a happy family? :) She is my favorite comedian!
I live in the Columbus, Ohio area, where I just moved for an IT job with a large financial company, and I love it.
I also came out bisexual this year and have been finding more and more about myself every since. I've become a sort of a "yes man" as in I don't say no to any new experience as long as it's safe, legal, and sane for example: Visiting a hookah bar (I don't smoke period, even there), Going to dance clubs (I can't dance, but I do), playing tabletop games, and I'm really I am very interested in trying out some D&D for the first time!

I've started to frequent Reddit recently and have found two threads that I feel need to be discussed here, as I respect a lot of you and would love to hear your opinions on this subject.
EA, in recent years, have started to get the reputation as a company that doesn't care about it's employees, it's customers or fair competition, but are any of these statements true? Can one of the largest video game publishers, if not the largest, really be doing things so underhanded that the only appropriate term for them is evil? The following is evidence supporting this claim...take it for what you will...
