Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"
First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
Blizzard gives gamers the cold shoulder again as it pushes StarCraft 2 to 2010. Defending that Battle.net is not properly implemented, Blizzard states, "we'll also continue to polish and refine StarCraft II, and we look forward to delivering a real-time strategy gaming experience worth of the series' legacy in the first half of 2010." Many people agree with this policy of pushing games back to perfect them, however I think something is up their sleeve. Other companies simply do not announce their game as early as Blizzard, so they don't need a pretend release date and policy. Blizzard hypes up the release as much as possible, building anticipation, until at the last second, *flip*, the light goes out.
Read the official PR press release below:
EA Games CEO John Riccitello fights back säd memöries of the poor release of both Mirror's Edge and Dead Space last year, stating that they didn't do as well as they should have because EA "put these games right on top of some very strong competitive launches." QQ, EA, yes, other people make games, too. EA went further, "they just didn't meet the expectations we had in fiscal '09." Electronic Arts is "less than pleased" with marketing methods used to promote the games, saying the it is not something they plan to repeat this year. They plan to promote Brütal Legend (that is annoying to type) by asking fans to pose in acts of lust with Jack Black.
