It's considered professionally courteous not to slag off a company you used to work for in public. Sledgehammer Games boss Glenn Schofield obviously hasn't heard of professional courtesy, and he's got no love for former taskmaster Electronic Arts.

"Wow, a year ago today I left EA," reminisced the developer via Twitter. "What a day that was. They really treated me like shit even after creating Dead Space for them.”

After the inevitable whirlwind of attention that Tweet got, Schofield had this to say: "Seems my Tweet got some attention. Didn’t mean to. But after a year of EA bashing us it’s good to get it off my chest."

Despite the irony of a man under the thrall of Activision complaining about maltreatment at the hands of a publisher, I have to say that I like this guy. This guy has balls, and as the saying goes, I like balls.
