EA has done it again

Electronic Arts, a company behind one of the most popular games in history, was voted Worst Company in America by Consumerist in 2012 and 2013, also 5th most hated company in the United States by USA Today in 2018, never stops to excel in what they do. Now they brought even more misery to the world.


EA has done it again

Potions: A Curious Tale, an indie game about a young witch travelling through enchanted lands, debuted on Steam on March 7th. It is not a title that we would hear about if it weren’t for one tiny detail - Electronic Arts caused irreversible damage to the game premiere without even trying. How? Easily, EA dropped 11 of their old games (f.e. Command & Conquer) on the platform on March 7th without any warning or advertising.

While it might be good news for nostalgia nerds, who will be able to purchase the games they used to play years ago, the creator of Potions: A Curious Tale, Renee Gittins, was not that thrilled, since the title she has been working on for the past 10 years was quickly pushed out of the spotlight on Steam by the sudden influx of old EA titles. While she chose the date of March 7th because it is a day before International Women’s Day, and it is linked to the themes of her game, EA chose that date because it was the perfect time to start cashing on the old crap they had lying around the office. I guess.

To be fair, Potions: A Curious Tale does not sound like a game that would become an instant hit and would melt down the Steam, but it must be soul-crushing to work on something for 10 years and then have it ruined by an evil corporation for no particular reason. Maybe no one would have noticed the premiere of Potions: A Curious Tale if it was not for the story behind it, but now we will never know because EA had to make some pity cash on peddling their old crap.

Timber! Stalker 2 is about to fall flat on its face

Almost 3 months ago I was worried that Stalker 2 might be a huge disappointment for several reasons. Now, that developers showed us the gameplay trailer, lots and lots of red flags popped up on this project that made me feel smug and important...


The pathetic drama returns

No, it’s not title to sequel for adventures of not greatest superhero called Pathetic Drama... which is not bad idea actually. Nope, it’s the Bayonetta 3 pathetic drama that just wouldn’t die.


World of Warships is getting desperate

Or maybe it’s just a wishful thinking, but I got a surprising e-mail from Wargaming that made me laugh. Not with them, at them.


Another rich guy goes bonkers

Yeah, yeah, the same old story - boy inherits some money, uses his spiel to turn it into more money and then goes bonkers. How many times have you heard that one?


Another game have cyberpunked

To no-one’s surprise another big title have just completely cyberpunked on the premiere - buggy, under-developed, remade to appeal to everyone. And ended up quickly forgotten. Yes, I mean Saints Row.


Cowboys and idiots

I recently revisited old British sitcom called Cowboys, about inept builders taking jobs they are not qualified for, doing them as quickly and as cheaply as possible and then running away with the money. Few days later GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition premiered and I got the strange feeling of deja vu.





It can be assumed, that Wargaming is taking the p!ss

It can be assumed, that Wargaming is taking the p!ss

Yes, you could assume that after recent events Wargaming, company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships, would be more careful, but if you assumed that you clearly do not know this company for v...

Gamers are weird creatures

Recent developments in several titles made me think that gamers are truly weird, weird creatures that should be studied by science, because it’s not how human kind should work. Or is it?
