Halls of EA: 30th Anniversary of First Games Shipped

 

Thirty years ago today, EA’s first employees—including founder Trip Hawkins–modestly packed and shipped EA’s first five games. Senior Director of Global Media Solutions Nancy Fong  was there on the fateful day in a South San Francisco warehouse that started it all.

Fifty to sixty employees took a break from their usual job duties—programming, advertising, etc.—to instead get together in the warehouse, pack games into boxes, and then load them into UPS trucks. Unlike today, there was no dedicated game store or digital distribution that offered the option to let you download the game straight to your Commodore 64.

A Designer’s Thoughts: Armored Black Dragons

 

The Sims 3 Community Blog

Check out what Designer Alan Copeland has to say about the Baby Dragons he created for The Sims 3 Dragon Valley! The Armored Black Dragon will be available as a bonus unlock when you own both The Sims 3 Dragon Valley and the Dukes of Bow Renn Faire venue – both available on The Sims 3 Store on May 30, 2013.

They are born with an inherent understanding of many of the Reaper’s secrets, a burden that often makes them detached and distant.
