    Ah what a small world we live in. I remember back in the day when gaming companies like Origin and others would be built by actual gamers and devs and then once successful with their cutting edge ideas they were scooped up by the evil empire at Electronic Arts and destroyed, run into the ground for as much coin as could be squeezed out of them. Why? because EA knew nothing about gaming. Just a bunch of suits looking to make a buck. Now here we are years later. Chris Roberts comes back onto the scene with what looks to be an incredible game in the making and he being an ex Origin guy himself must be reading this story and smiling to himself, shaking his head.

    Facebook now. Electronic Arts then. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
