I really enjoy this little write ups and they're kind of hard (require effort) to track down elsewhere. Thanks for putting them up.
Tidbits From Today’s Money-Filled Activision Earnings Call
I'm really glad Skylanders did well. It shows that even though the game industry has changed a lot in the last 15 years, kids are still smart enough to want good games, parents are wise enough to buy them, and developers are still willing to make them. None 'o this Ben 10 jank.
Activision is the epitome of all the things that consist of money hunger, streamlining games, killing creativity, killing titles by milking them to death and so on.. How we're even discussing this disgusting and unholy company is beyond me.
As long as people keep buying the games and paying money, they'll keep doing what they're doing. They're not going to stop until the financials tell them to stop, just like most other companies.
I hope Skylander remains successful for a while - long enough to see developers Toys for Bob profit enough so that when they're done with that, they can make Star Control 3 for REAL this time - that's right, Skylanders is somehow from the same creative minds as Star Control 1 and 2.
