    Some reason I went to twitter to check out Pachter (I don't even own an account) and I saw him talking to you (same username as here) about the Wii U. I thought it was funny that I saw you on there. Shame you went inactive and even though I didn't agree with you on some things at least you put effort into your posts.

    He was good at writing stuff. That is for sure. Not sure why he let himself live in the situation that he was in. happy his life has changed for the better.

    Hey Joel - I haven't seen your opinions about Nintendos e3 yet... I'm excited to hear what you're thinking! You always make well thought out arguments. What do you think about WiiU launching with NSMBU AND that another 2D Mario is released in the same year?!



    Cheers mate!

    Well if you liked Nintendo's E3 your not going to like what I'm saying. Nintendo is neglecting the early adopters and the core consumers who will actually buy the hardware. They are sending a mixed message to consumers and with fewer first party titles in the launch window then 3DS and weaker third party support. I've gotta say I think WiiU will struggle to meet Nintendo's projections. Nintendo's not even launching Pikmin3 launch day! Nintendo promised last year to target the core, they promised full EA, Activision and Sega support. Last year they had THQ promising full support. You had publishers like SquareEnix pledging support.

    This year all they have left is minimal support from WarnerBros and strong support from UbiSoft. They have fewer games then they had announced last year.

    My opinion for the first time since GBA I'm not buying a Nintendo system launch day. I will buy the console when Nintendo keeps its word and gives us the games.

    Even Wii and 3DS had three launch day first party titles and they also had more third party support. Correct me if I'm wrong but weren't their fifteen 3DS launch day games? But less then 30 launch window WiiU games? Its suicide!

    Now I'm not suggesting Nintendo's doomed, I'm not even suggesting WiiU is. It will sell this holiday season. It just won't likely meet Nintendo's projections and their is a chance Nintendo will need to cut price within a year of launch as they did with 3DS unless WiiU launches for 250$ or so.

    Nintendo better hope that their are 8 million Mario fans willing to buy a new console just to play NSMBU! Because its the only console seller they've got launch day and the other titles capable of selling hardware could at best push 250k hardware units!

    Huh I am now in charge of the video games division in a new gaming magazine. Apparently I'm also going to be helping found a league and working with retailers. This should be interesting!

    Great! What magazine? Or is it E-zine?

    on 18 May 2012

    This is where it starts sucking. The guy who hired me knows what he wants. But needs help in creating it. I'm actually helping pick the name right now, we will have a limited run of the first issue 5,000 copies have been ordered by retailers. Right now the magazine is going to be free and we are planning a business model where our gaming league and retailers finance the magazine that will be free in select retailers.

    Starting in British Columbia the five year business plan is to get it circulated coast to coast within five years and hopefully 50k-100k copies each magazine.

    I am only attaching myself to this project because I think the free model is viable. Throw in the creation of a gaming league pitting gamers against one another across different media arts.

    A tournament where the player must master not only video games but card games and board games. Searching across Canada for the ultimate gamers who are masters of all things game.

    Also lucky for me I will also be pleasuring readers with exclusive video game industry content. Focusing a huge effort on our local retailers, publishers and developers.

    This is a project I can see succeeding. At a time when print media is dying this is just the challenge I am looking for!

    on 18 May 2012

    I did not read any of that after you ignored 2 of my last 3 wall posts here. But send me the information and I will buy a copy, but you will have to send it to me.

    on 19 May 2012

    You mean your two great ones? Or replies on your wall? I haven't been able to be on consistently and on my.mobile its hard to look through your wall history.

    Cant buy a copy, its a free magazine. With your address I could mail you the first issue when it has been printed. Also its only getting 5,000 copies first issue.

    Its not an international magazine. Were starting here in BC primarily. The plan to go national is going to take at least a year as our gaming league is a major part of the magazines appeal. Getting the infrastructure in place to history events across Canada will take time and.money!

    Not trying to ignore ya by the way. Just super busy and still don't have a PC.

    Huh the Head of the IT department at the University of Waterloo is following me.on Twitter. Its really awesome that so many high profile guys are following me. I should have been on Twitter years ago, could have really helped my career

    Great!

    I really hope you get that job! :)

    I probably have it not 100% sure yet!

    on 05 May 2012

    I'm sure you got it. :D

    on 05 May 2012

    I did, waiting to begin work on our first issue. A second magazine is interested in hiring me, but I am going to likely turn it down as I have no idea if I could take 2- magazine writing jobs at once.

    Turned down two website jobs now two. Both were start ups, apparently I was going to make alright money. But the owners were not bright when it comes to gaming.

    One was a music industry exec. Works in Vancouver her idea was to create a forum where game makers, musicians and film creators could go to talk about their projects and to one another. Their wasn't going to be a base site, just a forum and she had no intentions on creating podcasts or any main content.

    She wanted me to head up the gaming boards and be in charge of marketing and getting developers on the website. She hoped to start turning a profit in a few months on ads to supplement her income.

    I told her I wouldn't be associated with a sinking ship. I have to actually believe the company is viable, there is no way she was going to make a profit anytime soon, no way would she get industry clientele without a professional site and content to support the forum.

    Bad business model!

    I didn't realize how many jobs there are that I can take. Writers are in high demand, was thinking of possibly taking on a local food critic job. Love to eat lol though I really don't know shit about the restaurant industry!

    My Dad was a Director of Food and Beverage at the Buena Vista Palace! ^_^ He's been in the FB Business for quite awhile.

    hey man i see your statous update. don't let it get to you. maybe you should become a writer here until something else comes up.



    dud you already know what i think of your writing so it goes without saying.

    also do you have your computer back?

    on 04 May 2012

    No PC, also I didn't want to apply here due to some conflicts with some specific staff members

    on 05 May 2012

    never let that stop you. conflict you can avoid/ignore.

    Currently busy looking at new projects. Being scouted by several developers but also have some journalism job offers. Also meeting with the Administrator of Vancouver Film School to try and attend next year. Hopefully you'll be hearing more about these prospects soon.

    Well make some more articles here! Add them to your resume.

    on 30 April 2012

    Unfortunately forum posts just don't carry much weight in getting a job. I'm sick of freelance it is shit you get little pay, no recognition and your stuck doing little articles nobody cares about.

    Here I take flack from people who think they are better then me because they have a job. They work for VGChartz or what ever site.

    Heck I actually have to try and defend myself here as a journo.

    I miss working for an actual company. At the Times I had a VIP status. I could walk into my theater and watch anything I wanted, get early screenings. I could get interviews easily I could sometimes get early games.

    As freelance you get shit.

    Right now I am in talks to head up a division at a game magazine. I'm in talks with three new websites. I'm being scouted by multiple companies one of which I think is THQ Montréal.

    In one month of me deciding to leave freelance I have interviews at schools. I am in talks with several outlets.

    I'm making contacts again and looking for potential employers.

    I will be so freaking glad to get out of freelance and back with an actual reputable company or site.

    For now my blog is going to get some articles. But I am very busy.

    I'm meeting with Vancouver Film School about taking my Masters in Entertainment Business Management. I'm also working on a few pitches for everything from documentaries to games.

    Looking at possibly moving to Montréal in 2014.

    I'm finally getting back on track. Hopefully in two years I will be employed at a game publisher with my Masters degree heck Yah!

    on 03 May 2012

    Wonderful! Get out of that apartment!!!

    on 04 May 2012

    Ya hopefully I get a sponsor for school. Unfortunately I'm broke as crap. I'm going to go into debt by a very large amount going to school.
