Electronic Arts

I absolutely adored Titanfall, but going by the comments and blogs I've read over the past year, it seems like I'm the only person on Earth who did. Every article, news post, or blog written about the game invariably becomes ... read feature

There is a couch in Battlefield Hardline and you can drive it


No, seriously, there is
Mar 13
First-person shooters can feel pretty generic most of the time. You're handed your gun and objective and then proceed to shoot people that get in your way. You die, and start all over again. The ones that really stand out, h... read

Tough to argue with free

Titanfall celebrates the first anniversary of its launch today. There might not be a grand showcase dedicated to everything that's happened to the game over the year, but EA and Respawn haven't forgotten about it altoget... read

Bad cop, worse cop

Watch out, citizens of Los Angeles. There's a war on drugs in your city, and you just might end up as collateral damage. In Battlefield Hardline's take on the City of Angels, the forecast always calls for a fair chance of ra... read

Tactical cyberpunk game Syndicate free on Origin


RIP Bullfrog
Mar 06
Remember that time Starbreeze and EA brought Syndicate back as a first-person shooter? Wait, no, forget I ever mentioned it. I'm sorry. Instead, nab the original Bullfrog Productions-developed Syndicate for free through Origin's On the House. Once the game is in your library, it'll stay there, and this is a good one to have. [Thanks, Luna Sy] read

Madden NFL 15 latest EA Vault addition


Boom!
Mar 04
EA Access continues to prove itself worthy as Madden NFL 2015 has just been added to the current lineup of available games in the The Vault. It's a shame Sony turned down this service. Despite their concerns, it appears to be providing plenty of value -- at least it would for me. read

Battlefield: Hardline

Prepare to pay full price twice to unlock all of Battlefield Hardline's exclusive features


Surprisingly its not releasing on iOS
Mar 03
"Own More and Be More" is EA's dystopian-toned tagline for its unveiling of Battlefield Hardline Premium. In addition to the £44.00/$59.99 price for the base game (£59.99/$69.99 for the "deluxe" version), you can slap down an additional £44.00/$59.99 to unlock exclusive things that should have been included anyway. read

Shadow Realms

Development on new BioWare IP Shadow Realms ceased


It will fade into the darkness
Feb 09
Shadow Realms had a very cool idea going for it. The tabletop RPG-inspired, four versus one gameplay reminded me of board games like Descent or Level 7 [Omega Protocol]. The modern fantasy setting seemed like a nice break fro... read

Easter egg

Battlefield Hardline's cops go nuts for donuts


Don't we all?
Feb 06
I'm not hip on police vernacular. Like, "donuts spotted!" for instance. That probably either means they found donuts, or "spotted" is a cheeky word for sprinkles. Whatever the case, these Battlefield Hardline cops are stoked that there are some frosted confectioneries around. Typical. read

It was a given that Dragon Age: Inquisition was going to be a big hit for both Electronic Arts and BioWare. That's a no-brainer for the conclusion to a triple-A trilogy. But, even the publisher seems to be taken a bit ab... read

I never thought I'd have this many games attached to my Origin account, but here we are with yet another On the House offer from Electronic Arts I might as well claim. You know, just to have. SimCity 2000 is free (read: free to keep, not free to play for a limited time) so get on that. I think the last time I seriously played this was in, gosh, middle school? It's been a while. read
