All About Polybren
Just wanted to let anybody still following me here know that I set up a new blog for the sort of writing I previously would have put here. So far it's thoughts on Wreck-It Ralph and Man with the Iron Fists, as well as a review for Assassin's Creed: Liberation. I've been playing lot of Gravity Rush recently, so I might write something on that once I finish it. The super-short versions is "It's very good, and I was silly not to check it out earlier."
I found it kind of odd after the Chick-Fil-A controversy earlier this year that some publicly traded companies in the gaming world like EA and Zynga have taken prominent stands in support of LGBT issues, even though their games like Madden and Draw Something have a broad appeal that covers plenty of people who wouldn't necessarily support those views. So basically, I wanted to see if shareholders would have preferred them to just keep quiet on the issue rather than risk alienating a chunk of the customer base. I was a little surprised by what they told me:
From EA's press release for FIFA 13 day-one sales:
"Momentum in North America was fuelled by a launch event in New York hosted by Snoop Lion that propelled the hashtag #SnoopsFIFA13 trending in the United States and worldwide on Twitter, midnight openings at over 2,000 retail stores across the country, and game quality."
My Recent Reviews
Some people just don't have opinions. Like Polybren.
If you don't understand why I love this game after watching these three rounds, I simply can't explain it to you.
Here's my favorite catchy song from the awesome Klonoa 2 for PS2.
Some people express love through poems; I express it by having my created wrestler dismantle Mitsuharu Misawa.
Polybren does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Polybren a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
