Don't forget Syndicate.

EA: 'We are making a new Syndicate game'

Me: 'Yay'

Me: 'Twats'

Dungeon Keeper was very much a dog turd curled onto the mount Everest of shit that EA has unloaded onto gamers. Spore, Origin, Syndicate, the end of Mass Effect, the rape of the BF franchise and a host of other infractions both small and large.

It's worth noting that EA are so hated that they have twice won the award for being worst company in America against the sort of companies who's activities occasionally result in massive environmental damage and / or people actually dying.

The Whole World: "What? That game was shit."

Me: "*sigh* No, the *original* Syndicate."

I was so angry when that piss poor remake came out.

People need to give themselves a shake and stop using MS products!

You need to start dropping this little gem into some of the Snowden/NSA articles.

It has relevance.

Ahaha like I'd be scared of malware hosted on an EA SERVER. It'll be down half the time, and refusing to let you log in even to play single player mode the other half. Then they'd expire the license, switch off the server, and then no one could use it ever again ever!
