Robert Ramnauth, Nightmare Mode: “Characters that Count”
This, ladies and gentlemen, is how you do it right. Shadow of the Colossus came out eight years ago, and Robert has absolutely zero interest in spoiling it for anyone who either hasn’t played it yet or hasn’t finished it. As it should be. Nicely done, Robert.
MCV says they have informants from both Sony and Microsoft stating that both companies are going to reveal their next consoles during E3 2012.
Just stop for a second; think before you write. Even if you do have exclusive information on consoles that are due to be announced, companies can pull back their announcements at any time if they see it isn’t feasible for the corporation, making you–as a source–look illegitimate for now-untrue rumors.—

QUOTED FOR TRUTH - Ars Technica / Opposable Thumbs, Ben Kuchera: Developer calls accurate Borderlands 2 report “shoddy journalism” [August 3rd, 2011]
When Kuchera writes stuff like this it makes me want to be a better man. It really does.
So it’s been several years now where there haven’t been any productive new wells for Activision. Oh, and look what’s happened: a huge well has suddenly run dry.
In the interview, [Bobby] Kotick claims that Guitar Hero died because it was neglected in favor of D.J. Hero—spit take—but it actually died because it was being pumped 24x7x365. It was overproduced. It’s dry.
No problem. Just take some of the other new wells that have been discovered—oh, shit. There are no new wells.
See? Of course he’s going back to the Guitar Hero well, so to speak. Of course he’s going to try to pump more oil out of that location. There are no wells to replace it.— QUOTED FOR TRUTH - Dubious Quality, Bill Harris: The Self-Evaluated Genius Of Bobby Kotick [July 25th, 2011]
NOT SHIT: Destructoid, Jim Sterling: The Duke Delusion: Why Duke Nukem isn’t a parody [June 16th, 2011]
This is a wonderful breakdown of the character of Duke Nukem and why he cannot possibly be described as parody or satire, ignoring the paragraph where Jim attempts to tell use what perfect parody should be and offers his own work as an example.
