Electronic Arts (EA) has released their new game app to replace Origins. Recently it has become mandatory. Many a gamer has found themselves staring at the upgrade screen with no other options. And as it turns out, as bad as the Origins app was, the EA app, in many ways is even worse.
I do not want to come off as totally negative. Opening the application, it looks decent, and organization is not bad. The problem is that it is buggy and it is missing a few key features. Looks like another corporate rush job with unrealistic time lines, and designed by a committee, most of which will probably never use the app. Unfortunately that is what we have come to expect from corporate America.
And gamers, you are just going to take it. What are you going to do? Boycott EA? Not play your favorite games? Cancel your account? No to all of this. You are just going to take it, and EA Corporate knows this. Seriously, they do not expect to loose major market share, which is what it take to rectify these issues. (more…)
