GameSpy Technology is shutting down on May 31, 2014 and that's real bad news for the many games that rely on the service for online functionality such as multiplayer matchmaking and leaderboards. It's largely unclear what will come of these titles -- it's up to their developers to find a solution sooner than later, if at all. In the case of three Battlefield games, there's hope.

Asked on Twitter if Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 would be playable post-GameSpy, the official Origin account replied that "We're working on transitioning those games after the shut down so you'll still be able to play them."

In a follow-up statement to IGN, publisher Electronic Arts said "We're working on finding a transition, but still have technical hurdles to overcome. We will make an announcement when there is news to share." Good. I'd hate to see Bad Company 2 go down because of GameSpy.

Poor Pagan Min. He tries ruling his regime with a positive influence, but all those terrorists are there to just, ahem, "muck" it up. Maybe his tendencies to take hostages and implement electroshock torture aren't viewed by everyone as "positive," but it's tough to argue with such a snazzy dresser.more

Sad day: Bungie nerfs Destiny's loot cave

Not a lot looks changed in Call of Duty's 'Power Changes Everything' trailer

For a trailer that boldly suggests that "power changes everything," Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare sure looks pretty similar to past installments in the franchise. I guess the guys jump higher before using their mega-de...more
