[UPDATE: Apparently the originally reported figures were incorrect. Battlefront II supposedly shipped 7 million, not 9 million, which is still a fuckton and obviously even more sad for poor Electronic Arts. Haha.] Electronic Arts expected Star Wars Battlefront II to have shipped ten million copies by now, and fell short…
According to journalists, “angry YouTube videos” have demoralized employees of Electronic Arts and BioWare. So… let’s talk about that anger, shall we?
YouTube continues to have a YouTube problem. The latest furor – YouTube’s answer to money troubles is to create a system where the rich get richer and the poor stay poor. Truly a company for our times!
Recently we were contacted by an independent game developer from Adelaide, South Australia. Last year this dev was the target of an outrageous news report. Outrageous for all the wrong reasons. The Jimquisition applied more research, editing, production value, and talent to this story than Nine News Adelaide ever did….

Catharsis. This one was pure catharsis.
There’s trouble brewin’ at the ol’ YouTube Place… again. Let’s look at YouTube Heroes, a new way in which the video service aims to look like it’s doing something useful, but really isn’t.
This episode is about Ark: Survival Evolved and its DLC controversy. That’s all it’s about. There’s nothing else I want to talk about, and I definitely don’t mention any other subject but this.
Well here we are again. No Man’s Sky isn’t even cold yet and we’ve got Final Fantasy XV filling in with the unreal hype and ludicrous “fan” outrage. Yet more messengers have been shot as a delay news story became another example of what happens when hype culture rots people’s…
