I'm beginning to miss self-publishing game companies like Popcap. One less company logo to sit through while loading up a game!

Popcap are awesome, kinda sad to watch them get swept up, but at the same time there will hopefully be lots more games from them in EA.

I don't believe that dollar amount... Did Leigh Alexander say 1 Billion?

I really hope they gave Popcap employees shares in the company. Then Jeff Green will be rich. Dude deserves to be rich.
