The IDEA - The Indian Documentary of Electronic Arts
- Seven somewhat dated collections of essays, music, videos, and thought curated and designed by Shankar Barua, backed by totally awesome early Internet-era graphics, and hosted at Laurie Spiegel's
. Please note that many individual pages of The IDEA gazettes are very-very heavily loaded, by [2001's] WWWeb standards, with images/audio/video. In other words, if you can get past ugly old broken HTML and auto-playing music, you may find a lot to like in here.

, the video game publisher that is no stranger to either controversy
, is sponsoring a contest for its upcoming release of Dante's Inferno (Previously
). The contest, taking place at this weekend's Comic-Con, requires entrants to "commit acts of lust"
and take a photo of said act with an EA (or other company's) booth babes, post the photos on Twitter or Facebook, and repeat the process as many times as possible for additional chances to win. The prize is listed in part as "Dinner and a sinful night with two hot girls". [more inside]

When we last
saw EA Spouse
, she was married to an Electronic Arts
employee and she painted a rather unflattering portrait
of EA's programming employment practices. Now at last, Erin Hoffman
's identity has been revealed. She and her husband have found employment
in the field they love and they've established a website
where people in the games industry can discuss the pros and cons of their jobs. Will it be enough to effect permanent change an industry that still has so much on the line
? The recent EA settlement
bodes well at least.>

The battle for the NFL
After EA Games bombshell
announcement that it had signed a five-year exclusive licensing deal with the NFL
, many sports games fans are wondering what will happen to their favorite franchises that don't feature John Madden
. You can bet ESPN
is hoppin' mad (and probably Microsoft as well), as are fans of its NFL 2K
series (of which I'm a proud member). Do deals like this hurt the fans or the sport ... or even the gaming industry itself? I certainly think so. Sports is about competition! Oh, no, wait it's about money. Never mind.

'outs' Electronic Arts' harsh employment practices, and by implication disses the whole American 'work 'em 'till they drop' ethos. Is this the start of a quiet revolution or is the American Way too entrenched to be stopped?
