There's been a lot of tension in the GI blogging community over the last few days. While I don't have a lot to say about it, I do have something, so I thought I'd do a "items too small for their own blog posts" post, for your reading pleasure (or displeasure, or indifference).
I wasn't sure about the new XBLA game, Comic Jumper, put out by Twisted Pixel. A quick download of the trail version, however, quickly put that uneasiness to rest. It was funny, had some good side-scrolling action, and gave me that old-style arcade game feel (except updated).
This is for the old folks here, though the rest of you can take part too (see below).
Those who have been following this blog know that I'm not an Activision-hater. In fact, I've come to its defense a few times. Somebody complaining about CoD being run into the ground? I'm there defending it. Complaints about Bobby Kotick's latest news-making statements? Ok, I'm not always there, but I do occasionally point out when he's been taken out of context.
At the end of yesterday's post about Achievements and whether they're worth anything, I had a brainstorm. (Yes, it was quite painful)
Yes, I know that sounds redundant.
Got blasted from both sides on this issue over the last couple of days, and it caused me to think.
Activision's Bobby Kotick has been taken to task (Ok, that's putting it mildly) for a lot of the things he's said. It's funny how nobody ever broadcasts the things he says that most gamers actually agree with.
Yes, fellow gamers, GameCrush has launched!
Yes, now you can blame video games for your pets going berserk.
Exploding peripherals would certainly make your day kind of sucky, wouldn't they?
