Former EA exec Patrick Söderlund’s new studio just opened, but it has big plans

Just a few months after leaving his job at EA as chief design officer, Patrick Söderlund is ready to announce his next venture. Called Embark Studios, the company was revealed this evening at the earnings call for MapleStory publisher Nexon in Tokyo. Embark is a collaboration of sorts, with Nexon serving as both a publisher and investor in the fledgling studio. Söderlund’s team isn’t ready yet to show off a game, but the former EA executive has big plans for the future. “We have a mass-market, large-scale ambition with what we’re going to do,” he says.

To create that, Söderlund says that the studio will make use of emerging technologies to build new kinds of online interactive experiences. The press release announcing Embark is filled…

Leonard returns as Raptors complete road trip by beating Suns

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Kawhi Leonard had 25 points and 11 rebounds in his return from an ankle injury, and the Toronto Raptors beat the Sacramento Kings 114-105 on Wednesday night to improve the NBA’s best record to 11-1.

Pascal Siakam scored 21 points, Serge Ibaka had 14 points and 14 rebounds, and Kyle Lowry added 16 points and eight assists for the Raptors.

Toronto has won five straight since its lone loss this season at Milwaukee on Oct. 29.

Leonard sat out the previous two games and got off to a sluggish start early against the Kings before helping Toronto pull away.

The two-time All-Star scored 10 points in the second quarter and 10 in the third, including a soaring, one-handed dunk through traffic. Leonard also made a pivotal 3-pointer in the fourth after Sacramento had pulled to 106-99.

Toronto has won three straight against the Kings.

Jazz celebrate 40th season; could Gobert Lane be in the future?

SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz celebrated their 40th season Wednesday night, even if it was only 39 years since the start of their first season in Utah in October 1979.

The team wore their purple-and-gold Classic Edition jerseys, the Golden Griff, Darrell Griffith, was on hand as a Jazz alumni, along with Tom Nissalke, the original Utah Jazz coach, and Frank Layden, the original general manager, as well as longtime coach Jerry Sloan.

When asked about what it means to be part of the 40th-season celebration, coach Quin Snyder said “it’s hard to articulate” before articulating.

“We’ve played a small role relative to all the people that have come before and laid a foundation,” he said. “There’s really a level of pride beginning with Mr. Miller and Gail and Greg and Steve — everybody from the ownership group and the way they’ve committed to the Jazz the resources they’ve provided. As much as anything, it’s the level of passion and how it’s affected and impacted everybody here over the years.”

“Being part of this special culture is something good,” said Ricky Rubio. “This team has been one of the best for a long time. All the players who have played here built a culture, and we want to keep doing it. They really set a tone, especially John, a guy who I really admired and looked up to when I was younger.”

“It’s great to be able to play and honor the legacy that they left you,” added Rudy Gobert.

GOBERT LANE?: Gobert said one of the first things he noticed when he came to Utah was how the streets around Vivint Arena are named after Stockton and Malone.

“I saw they had their own street, that means they did something good,” Gobert said. “When I saw that, I said, ‘maybe one day I’ll have …read more
