I think it's ok. If someone asks, you can just tell then it's the name of a friend who past away. No need for deeper explanations if you don't feel like it.

Unbelievable. It is hard to understand how I can feel sadder because of this, than from hearing that someone I actually personally knew died. I guess thats the best eulogy I can pay him, that he endeared himself to me even though we never actually met, just by being himself.

And just after he had gotten married...

@spiralcut: I think the most important point people are forgetting is that after a while, the Old SimCity "maps" also seemed small. I usually ocupied all of the space on the map without much trouble, and more importantly, when I was done I felt like "great... now what?"

This at least will allow for more longevity in gameplay I hope.

People just have a distorted view of the size of old simcity cities. They weren't that big either people...

@ultraspacemobile: By physical stores I actually meant everyone of those you pointed out.

In response to your second question, I have put it on a few forums online, and passed it around a few friends of mine who also know people who play games. I get what you're saying about Gamestop. The fact that they have become known for some shady business practises (e.g. reports of them selling second-hand games as if they were first-hand), and ill informed/educated store clerks hurt thembadly in my opinion. They could distinguish themselves as having a kind of "high touch" approach to videogame selling... But they really don't in my experience. Still for people who buy games as a gift for example (and there are a lot of them) and aren't well educated about the product, that could mean having an upper-hand on other retailers.

The thing is that when I was making a survey, I didn't want to make it ten minutes long. So asking about gamestop and wal-mart/Target/etc in separate wasn't much of an option. Perhaps one day if I get to work in a publisher or something I'll get to ask all the questions I wanted =)

@49th:

yes. it refers to customer information provided by in-store promotion mostly

In the case of digital stores, the front page advertisement of recent releases.

Basicly it's Do you need info at your purchasing point to help make your decision or do you come in with your mind set on something.

@rentacop: Yeah, I just noticed it too. The problem is that if I edit the question, I may lose the previous answers. Better to have one too many than one to few I guess.

Sega is going to ruin COH

I still can't wrap my mind around that myself. My pipe dream would be to see Sega AM2 be involved with a COH2 expansion with the same maniacal OCD energy they put in a VF.

Keep in mind that COH2 is almost done by now so at least that one is bound to be similar in quality to COH and it's expansions. Eitherway I'd love to see what creative assembly could do with that IP.

@RedRoach: Outcast and Academy were both great games, but the other ones were kinda overrated. Battlefront especially, it just copied battlefield in a bad way.
