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.

Ugh, you are wrong in your thought process.

Just bring it down to its core level, you are branded now in the term Indie... What is indie?

Its independent publisher, that means, you are the independent publisher... So yes, if EA is publishing games and then marketing "Indie" its obvious exploitation as usual from what we know is pure evil.

EA was realized years ago, they would strip fun out of the game, so they can sell the same game again a year later. We see them buy out rights, we see them buy out companies.. It's over... they bled the turnip, now we get to sit back and watch them crumble in their own stupidity.. I will enjoy these next couple years
