50 Employees Laid Off At EA India

More jobs are being cut by EA this week. Recently, 50 jobs have been lost at EA India according to posts on the Facebook page of the country’s software trade organization. EA did not comment on the reports, but offered this statement to MCV India:

"EA is sharpening its focus to provide games for new platforms and mobile.  In some cases, this involves reducing team sizes as we evolve into a more efficient organisation. These are difficult decisions to let go of good people who have made important contributions to EA, and whenever possible we retrain or relocate employees to new roles.  Streamlining our operations will help ensure EA is bringing the best next-generation games to players around the world."

This round of job cuts is likely due the latest restructuring at EA after CEO John Riccitiello resigned last month. EA Mobile Montreal was affected by cuts last week as well.

The Last Guardian Will NOT Appear at #E32015 and Here's the Reason Why...

Since its reveal at E3 2009, The Last Guardian has not resurfaced other than in rumours and in statements regarding said rumours. Sony admits to major studio problems during the game’s development, but constantly reassures those anticipating the game that it is still not, and will not, be canceled. So is this the year that we finally see the resurrection of The Last Guardian? In my opinion, the answer is a big fat NO.

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

A Few Good Reasons for Grounding Players in WOW

Getting my first mount in World of Warcraft was a major milestone. It came at a time before Blizzard reduced the cost of training for a ground mount and the gold required seemed like an impossible sum when quests were doling out a few coppers. What's more, I was foolishly selling my gathered iron or mithril to in-game vendors rather than placing it up for auction. I won't get into the particulars of my moneymaking strategy but I will say that it wasn't effective and very indicative of my n00b status.
