This guy is apparently a Senior Software Engineer and Architect at Electronic Arts. Even more at the link.







Here are some more:

Nintendo are still operating like it's 1990. They should have "done a Sega" and offered Mario/Zelda as PS4/Durango exclusives

It is an utterly intentional decision to focus our resources on markets which actually matter ... like mobile, and Gen4.

Yep, we've got plenty of problems, but WiiU isn't where that family/casual market is. It's on mobile/tablet now!

Really? Good luck looking for a job next week.

EA should go and make a good Madden. Hasn't been one of those in a while.

I'm guessing he is confident that his talents are in high demand so he doesn't give a fuck. Its only easily replaceable people that walk on eggshells.
