I’ve been browsing the internet over the past few days finding all sorts of things that cause me to stop and think “Hey, that’s interesting”. But the catch is that I can’t justify making an entire blog entry dedicated to this…stuff. So, instead I’m going to make “Interesting Stuff” posts where I list and link to things I found interesting. I might comment briefly on them or I might not. Here is the first installment of Interesting Stuff…
Nintendo apologizes for their E3 Media Briefings – As they should! Hmmph! Okay, it wasn’t THAT bad but it was pretty lackluster and definitely aimed at a bizarre market. Satoru Iwata comes right out and states “If there is any perception that Nintendo is ignoring the core gamers, it’s a misunderstanding and we really want to get rid of that misunderstanding by any means,” Iwata said. “We are sorry about [the E3] media briefings…”
Champions Online Trailer – Lots of gameplay that I think looks incredibly boring.
ESA reveals that E3 will return in 09 – Good. I think E3 is a solid convention and we could use less near-useless fan-service and more serious informative events. Those who dislike the new E3 are either the big cash cows who could afford the old BS or punks looking for free t-shirts and posters.
Funcom stock is tanking – I wonder why?
EA CEO says investors don’t care about quality – DUH! That’s business. It’s not exclusive to EA. It has no bearing on their games. It’s simply the mindset of business. They care about earnings per share. To them your character and what he can do in-game means nothing. However, if the leadership of a company can provide a plan that both leads to quality and profit then everyone can be happy. PS: Players are not investors. We are consumers.
DemiGod Trailer – DotA but better… Where do I sign up?!
WAR Ships Sept. 23 (in stores Sept 24) – Thanks for Squigbert for this one. Looks like further evidence that we are indeed going to be playing WAR by late September.
That’s all I’ve got for now. I think I’m going to like this new mini-feature because I’ll be able to comment on a broader scope of topics much more regularly. By all means link to something you found interesting over the past few days. We’ll see how it goes.
