Tired of this Schmidt: Ubisoft & Other AAApolitical Rebels

in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 25 June 2019

Just reposting a recent blog in my oddly-titled series.  If you're on the up-and-up regarding this topic, maybe you'll get interesting points out of it.  Anyways... [Inspired by real-world arguments made by corporate suits and click-mongering vloggers, this rebuttal was considered, written, and submitted by one guy with certain beliefs. The 'Tired of this Schmidt' series has never...

Star Wars: TOR ='s EA's most expensive project yet

in PC Discussion, last active on on 12 June 2010

http://pc.ign.com/articles/109/1093149p1.html It's really just a short article mentioning that Star Wars: The Old Republic is EA's most costly game to create yet.  Considering they've been in the video-game biz for over 28 years (mentioned in article), this news shouldn't be taken that lightly.  Could this be the most expensive videogame to develop yet? What are your thoughts?...

http://xbox360.gamespy.com/xbox-360/remedy-project-next-gen-title/1090875p1.html Things to note: -They've dated it for July 27th -It's free for anyone who's bought Alan Wake new.  There's a one-use code inside each new copy so remember to hold onto that. -It's not really necessary to Alan Wake 2 (if there will be one) or the core Alan Wake itself.  Remedy did say it'll answer some...

Alan Wake non-internet advertising: "Where you at?"

in Microsoft Discussion, last active on on 19 May 2010

This is just a general question to vgchartz go-ers regarding Alan Wake advertising outside of the internet.  I just saw an announcement trailer FOR a CoD: Black Ops trailer to be shown during the Eastern Conference Finals on TV.  At the very end I noticed it only showed the 360 "Jump In" logo so I'm expecting the same treatment for the CoD: Black Ops trailer as...

in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 09 April 2010

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=242110 I'm sorry everyone but I have to give the news that Edge (in all their biasness) has given Conviction an......an........8/10.  Send as much ragemail as you can . Edit: Bear in mind I don't condone sending hatemail to Edge because an 8/10 is a great score.  Only a joke but it's been thought to be a misleading one by certain...

Poll: Which genre of games should I review next?

in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 01 March 2010

Felt like editing some of my older reviews and then wondered which games I should review next.  So I've come to the VGC community, to which genre should I do the honor of putting my beautiful reviewing mind towards first? I'll really focus on just that genre for now and then move on. Stealth: Main series of MGS (not spin-offs and portable games), Splinter Cell (not the portable game), and...
