This week on Steam they're running the EA special, which means you can get Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for six dollars. The last single-player FPS I played was Half-Life 2, and the last multiplayer FPS was Counter-Strike 1.6, so I had been wanting to try one of the new goosed up ones for a while. I have no fucking idea what the difference is between all of them: Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Battlefield, Black Ops, Bad Company, whatever. They all sound like Steven Seagal movies to me. The deciding factor in my call to try Bad Company 2 was that it was six dollars. So far I am enjoying it and it was definitely worth six dollars. However, when I was installing it, there was all kinds of shit it had to install. And then I remembered that this was an EA game. I probably have six rootkits and two things hiding in the firmware of my hard drive to keep me from pirating their six dollar game, which I paid for. This is because EA is well known to be EEVIL. I'm not particularly happy about this, but it is a pretty cool game. Conversely, I got Stardock's Elemental: War of Magic right when it came out. They don't use any DRM, but the game sucks BALLS. FOCUS: What's the most EEVIL company you deal with? What makes them so EEVIL? Why do you continue to deal with them?
