Burt Kwouk's agent issued the following statement: "Beloved actor Burt Kwouk has sadly passed peacefully away. The family will be having a private funeral but there will be a memorial at a later date." Kwouk is survived by his wife Caroline Tebbs, who he married in 1961 and his son. 

Kwouk famously played Mr. Ling in Goldfinger, and Spectre 3 in You Only Live Twice, as well as a Chinese genearl in the 1967 spoof Casino Royale. But now to bring it back to one of his greatest, most acclaimed moments of all time in Pink Panther between Cato (himself) and Chief Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers):



Rest in peace Mr. Kwouk, you were a tremendous talent and a true gift to the film/television industry!

Maxis Emeryville, the studio responsible for SimCity and Spore, has been shut down.  Here's what EA has to say (via Kotaku):

Today we are consolidating Maxis IP development to our studios in Redwood Shores, Salt Lake City, Helsinki and Melbourne locations as we close our Emeryville location. Maxis continues to support and develop new experiences for current Sims and SimCity players, while expanding our franchises to new platforms and developing new cross-platform IP.

These changes do not impact our plans for The Sims. Players will continue to see rich new experiences in The Sims 4, with our first expansion pack coming soon along with a full slate of additional updates and content in the pipeline.

All employees impacted by the changes today will be given opportunities to explore other positions within the Maxis studios and throughout EA. For those that are leaving the company, we are working to ensure the best possible transition with separation packages and career assistance.



Don't worry though, there are still four other Maxis studios to keep your Sims going.
