EA: No Origin Breach

Electronic Arts has found no security issues on Origin following reports on reddit from users claiming having been charged for games they did not purchase. PC Gamer has the follow-up from EA's investigations: "We found no indication at this point of a breach of our Origin account database," an EA rep explains. "Privacy and security of user account information are of the utmost importance to us. We encourage our players to use Origin user ID and passwords that are unique to their account, and to report any activity they feel may be unauthorized to EA customer support at"


A job listing from Square Enix in Japanese has started some speculation about plans for FINAL FANTASY XV, the next installment in this series of RPGs, as Gematsu translates this as being for a "FFXV-related online game," which is seeking applicants with "online management and production around games with fees," and an "interest and experience playing PC games." Multiplayer support for FINAL FANTASY XV has not been announced, and neither has a Windows edition, but Square Enix recently expressed interest in bringing more of the series to the PC platform. Thanks Destructoid.

Out of the Blue

We have once again arrived at the crest of a new year, with new year's eve celebrations to be found everywhere this evening. Well not everywhere, as it's 2015 already in some regions far to the east of here, and as always, we ask those of you who are already living in the future to not reveal anything to the rest of us that could disrupt delicate timelines. The other thought we won't be expressing for the first time is the sincere hope that everyone be careful when they are out celebrating, as the free flow of alcohol often leads to dangerous lapses in judgment, so please watch out for nuts, and please don't drink and drive.

Happy new year!
