PODCAST 45 EA's Indie Cred

Posted May 15th 2012 by J. Edison Thomas.

Podcast 45  EA's Indie Cred

Man, corporations just can't stop pissing us off. You've got Sony's flagrant Trials clone and Zynga's boneheaded attempt to control the social-gaming market by buying or copying anything that's popular at the moment. Thankfully, heroes like Mojang's Markus Persson hold the line, calling out EA for publishing an "indie bundle." The guys try out Mojang's Minecraft: Xbox 360 Version and revel in the indie wonderment and good-cheer to fellow gamers. Until... something horrible happens.
