Well, in terrible gaming news, EA is obviously trying to get World's Worst Company award for the 3rd year in a row, by destroying the cherished franchise of Dungeon Keeper, by making it a horrible F2P app game, where you get to dig A SINGLE BLOCK EVERY 24 HOURS!  Unless, of course, you pay for 'gems'.  And, they even went so far as to fly a virtual middle finger to every fan of the old games, by putting the Bullfrog logo on the You Lose flag!  Bullfrog was the company that made Dungeon Keeper 1 & 2 (and quite a few other good games), which EA destroyed to take their IPs.
What do I win?
An awesome-five for mentioning Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness.

EA makes an assload of money and fires everyone who works on games that don't make money.

I used to work for Bioware Austin, when SWTOR didn't do as well as expected they let go a huge amount of people.

EA has realized most people out there will willingly sell their souls in return for online capabilities.

Yeah, I've been boycotting EA for a few years now.  Yes, that means I have not played PvZ 2 or SWTOR.  I think the last game of theirs I ever bought was C&C: Red Alert 3.  I just wish there were more people out there willing to tell EA "no" with their wallets ...

However, if you're pining for some good Dungeon Keeper style gameplay, I've heard lots of good things about War for the Overworld.

Edit: Found this just now.  Looks like a really interesting RPG!

... that's not just DK style. Looking at the rooms, and even the damn floor and wall tiling, that's INCREDIBLY close... :O

Wonder if it'll also go in for dark humour?

Also, I won Civ V + DLC earlier. Didn't pay a thing for it. Even if  I think the Happiness thing is ridiculous: yay, free game~

CiV 5 is awesome. Play with 8 civs and 32 independent states, and no max turns. fun fun fun.

I don't even see how a Touhou civ, let alone changing the game into them, is supposed to work or be the slightest bit sensible. Gensokyo doesn't even have enough people for a single city, let alone multiple. :p

I do know some of the changes from Civ IV annoy me. Especially the happiness one. Also flying things' apparent inability to fly over water.

Well each single character is the leader of a whole civ.....

Because clearly anything potentially lead by Remi or Reimu is going to do well. >_>;

Most of them don't even look that interesting. And Utsuho gets bonuses from wrecking the whole world... :p

They so do do well! :D
Although there isn't a Reimu but there is a Remi.

What's not interesting about turning the world into Gensokyo!
