  1. It appears as though Electronic Arts, the world's second largest game maker, is working with Microsoft to release games under Windows Phone 8. Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore told Bloomberg, "We're working very closely with Microsoft to understand what their……

    I REALLY want them to come out with a WP8 version of Battlefield.

    I haven't tried the C&C game, but Lord of Ultima is one of the lamest things I've played, has nothing to do with the actual Ultima games (well barely). I would hardly call these things "games".

    Now there's a match, they were made for each other. Unfortunately its not good for gaming.
  9. I'm not impressed with EA nor Windows 8 so who cares. EA is all about doing just enough to make you think it could be a good game which fails in the end. Other companies made great games, then EA purchased them and they next releases in the franchise went down hill. As for Lord of Ultima (the only thing related to the Ultima series is they have Virtues and use the name Ultima, it doesn't really matter what OS you use as it's a web game so to say they have a Linux game is not entirely true. LoU starts out OK but you soon find that there really is only one path to become LoU and even though the game is free to play, you actually will have to spend money to complete the game, again mainly due to only one path to the goal. Compare this to Valve/Steam where you can actually play and enjoy some free games and if you want to buy some things you can but you don't have to in order to enjoy and complete the games.
  10. Console owners to expect lavy tablet/phone ports.

    Just like PC users have lazy console ports.
