PopCap was recently purchased by Electronic Arts. Popcap is
now facing massive downsizing. Offices are being closed, and people are being laid
off. So what has EA done with the Popcap name? They have released 4singleplayerboard games on Steam. Popcaps purchase was not new news per se, but now
it seems EA wants to use the name once associated with a creative and prolific
software company to peddle shuffleware. I felt it was important to remind
everyone that Popcap is no longer the company which brought us games like
Plants vs Zombies and Bejeweled, but rather another arm of the tight fisted corporate
greed which chokes the life and creativity out of our industry. The saddest
part is that this is no surprise.
What else should we expect from the worst
company in the United States of America?
