Quoteworthy: Notch Knocks "Indie" EA

Markus Persson's Twitter has strong reactions from Mojang's Markus 'Notch' Persson to the oddity of the EA Indie Bundle on Steam, as it would be a stretch to refer to anything related to the giant Electronic Arts as "indie" (in the same stretch of tweets he objects to even calling Mojang an "indie"). Beginning by saying: "EA releases an 'indie bundle'? That's not how that works, EA. Stop attempting to ruin everything, you bunch of cynical bastards," he follows with "Indies are saving gaming. EA is methodically destroying it." He caps this off with a clarification of what he's faulting here: "I got into trouble on the interwebs again! The games in the bundle are good, I'm not questioning them. I'm questioning EA." Thanks Develop.

Well, wonders never cease. Notch says something I actually agree with.

Yeap. Regardless of how one feels towards Notch he is spot on here, indies have been pretty much keeping the gaming industry afloat on the PC. Indie and publishers are two words that should never be joined so EA indie bundle is pretty much a blatant attempt of EA to cash in on the indie scene.
