The bad: EA appears to be having layoffs in Vancouver. It doesn't sound too big, but still bad for those losing their jobs, and it might be worth seeing if this is the start of something bigger.
The good: Ignition games raised $5 million for a realistic driving game. I'm sure you could help them spend the money, so send a resume.
(Also, is it just me, or do driving games never go out of style no matter what?)
