It was weird...everyone had a bad day where I work...we have one lady that has been stressing about having major surgery next week, and she said that is less stressful than work today. I found out at lunch, and kinda just went Fuck. I am 32, and have been reading a watching Ryan for a VERY long time. I left Gamespot when he did, and found this sit when he joined. I guess this is what it felt like when John Lenin was shot.
Way to stick to your guns Navarro. Oh, I get it. Your writing makes the most obvious platitudes of video game business fascinating to read. The future looks bright for corporate America while the working class gets boned by a damn cartoon company! This project could be huge for Disney but do they really need to get any bigger? They're freaking Disney! They own your entire childhood. Hell, they own the childhoods of today. It's absolutely frightening how transparent the marketing angle is on this idea. I'll just be waiting for the toys to become self- aware and destroy us Geth-style.
I wouldn't mind reading more editorials like this. There's no one on the staff more opinionated so might as well put those opinions to work. It's going to be a bumpy year for video games. Plenty to talk about.
Wasn't the a horrible little animated Kids movie a few years ago about toys that got the wrong chips in them, and then took over? That may be why there are no points of articulation, then if the buggers go nuts they can't move their arms to stab you with a nail file.
What does this mean for people who bought games on their service?
Those two will be pissed.
This is exactly why I decided to not buy games there. With GOG.com or steam I am pretty sure I will still be able to access my games in 2 years. Also if you did not keep paying for your online membership, you lost access to the games...and the cost the same or more than steam.
