EA Will Charge For Gas In Need For Speed: No Limits As Part Of Its Ongoing Effort To Make Games As Mundane And Annoying As Real Life

It's been a few years since a Need for Speed game popped up on Android, but EA announced last year that NFS: No Limits would arrive this spring. The game has already launched on iOS in a few regions, and the early reports indicate EA is up to its same old in-app purchase tricks. Actually, it's maybe even a little worse. No Limits will charge you to fill up the tank, which is funny because that sounds like a limit.

SimCity BuildIt Is Now Available Internationally After A Limited Launch, Complete With Towering In-App Purchases From EA

Fans of the classic SimCity franchise, today is... no, wait. EA has the license for SimCity, don't they? And this is an EA mobile game? Yeeeeeaaaaah, maybe you folks should just track down an old Pentium 4 machine and load up SimCity 2000 instead.

If Electronic Arts' terrible track record of reviving classic franchises for mobile doesn't dissuade you, then SimCity BuildIt is now available internationally from the Play Store. As with most EA games, it has had a brief period of geographically-restricted testing, but now it looks like most territories with access to the Play Store have access to the game.

Peggle Blast Has Arrived In The Play Store With The Usual Boatload Of EA In-App Purchases

I think almost every human being in the developed world has, at some point, played the original Peggle games. Those games offered satisfying pachinko-style casual gameplay on numerous platforms, but the new Peggle Blast is different in a few ways. It's the first Peggle game designed primarily for mobile devices, but it's also crawling with EA's customary in-app purchases.

EA Releases FIFA 15 Ultimate Team In Canada, Coming Soon To The Rest Of The World

Football season is back here in the United States - there were two, count 'em, two NFL apps in the last game roundup alone. But if you didn't get enough of the other football during the World Cup, EA would like to provide a digital alternative. At least if you live in Canada, that is - the company just published the Android version of FIFA 15 up north. Canucks, all the soccer you want is free for the asking...

EA Announces SimCity BuildIt For Android Without A Launch Date, So You'll Have To Wait To Be Bitterly Disappointed

There's a new SimCity game coming to Android! That's good! But it's being published by Electronic Arts, one of the worst citizens of the mobile gaming nation. That's bad. The game will feature full 3D environments, like the latest versions of SimCity for the desktop! That's good! But it will inevitably be free to play, and stuffed to the gills with in-app purchases for everything. That's bad. There's no word on whether or not the game will contain potassium benzoate.

This time around we're looking at ten new levels along with the debut of multiple plant and zombie units.

Part two introduces several gameplay altering enemies. A Wizard Zombie can use magic to turn players' powerful plants into non-intimidating sheep.

United Kingdom's Advertising Authority Declares EA Guilty Of Misleading Advertising For 'Free To Play' Dungeon Keeper

There are a lot of people upset with Electronic Arts, and more than a few of them are unhappy about the company's mobile re-release of Dungeon Keeper. Even the CEO called the mobile game, which is riddled with in-app purchases alien to the original, "a shame." But an empty apology is unlikely to placate the United Kingdom's Advertising Standards Authority, which today declared EA's description of the game as "free to play" to be misleading advertising.

[New App] Titanfall Gets Companion App For Android, PC Gamers Need Not Apply

Microsoft put a good deal of focus on Titanfall when it pushed out the Xbox One, and it remains the most high-profile title for the console. The action-packed first person shooter shakes up the traditional deathmatch formula by adding mechs that players are free to hop in and out of. As a result, the game introduces more of a vertical component to the firefight, as combatants are able to hop along walls and wage war across various floors.

[New Game] EA Ends Dungeon Keeper's Limited Availability, Now Offers The Refreshed Classic On Google Play Worldwide

Dungeon Keeper is a strategy video game that originally appeared for the PC in the 90s, but late last year EA released a refreshed version just for mobile. The game hit Android in October, but it was only available in a handful of countries. People living elsewhere have had to be patient, but now that wait has come to an end. Dungeon Keeper for Android is now available worldwide.
