Super Sweet Blogger Award and Why I Totally Deserve It

7 Jan

supersweetbloggeraward

Claire from MyReelPOV has nominated me for a Super Sweet Blogger award, and I graciously accept. Why do I totally deserve it, you ask? Well, the main reason is because I haven’t written a single word on this blog since June 2, 2011, and I still got an award. Hah! Double hah! In your face, most recent Academy Award winners and nominees!

Shadow of the Colossus is going to be made into a movie.

8 Apr

I was going to just make a post that said Sony can go fuck themselves, but I’ve now thought better of it. Instead, I’m going to tell them exactly why their ape brains are apparently venting too many nutrients, because this is fucking retarded.

News: Gamerscore blog team let go by Microsoft…..

23 Jan


…..and it’s news like this that really saddens me, because Microsoft says they’re all about community. Sure, they have a lot of problems, but what huge company doesn’t? But letting go a large part of their direct link with the people who like their products and services doesn’t sit well with me. I understand why this happened – the economy sucks, and they had to trim their belt a bit. But it’s people like Major Nelson and the Gamerscore blog folks who kept their community alive, so I would think they could find a way to keep those few people under their employ. I don’t really have much else to say about it except that, especially since the 1up debacle, I’ve found it increasingly more important for me to go to the smaller sites and blogs for more in-depth and thoughtful discussions. Gamerscore blog was no doubt part of Microsoft’s PR machine, but when you look at how Sony does things, you should be able to appreciate what Microsoft was aiming for with the blog team. This sucks, but at least some other company will eventually pick up some enthusiastic people who actually care about what people like us have to say.

Just a reminder…..

…..that the Fable II DLC is out now, so get on that. There’s three new quests/dungeons, six new weapons, more outfits and potions that change your appearance, and now you can customize your weapons with a new augment tool. I liked Fable II a lot, so I can’t see any reason not to boot the game back up and download this. Plus, when the game loads I should have like a bagillion dollars. Owning property, well…owns.

Crystal Dynamics staff cut by 30 members; makes interesting companion piece…

9 Jan

…to my previous post. If you were to look at these two posts, the stories wouldn’t correlate. The Crystal Dynamics news is pretty much the exact opposite of everything I just said. I still hold fast to my opinion that the safer the product, the more sales you’ll see, but this bit of news makes me wonder — with a very sad panda face — just what the hell is wrong with people?
