Yesterday, Electronic Arts sent out a press release letting us all know that they are planning to release The Sims 4 in 2014. N wrote an article earlier talking about the fact that he never really enjoyed The Sims.
I have a slightly different take on the franchise.
So, here’s the deal. Chris Roberts helms Cloud Imperium Games, the makers of Star Citizen / Squadron 42 and is looking for some extra loot so they can build their own motion capture studio. To do that, they’re asking for the public’s help in making this thing happen. So why don’t we all chip in a few bucks and make that situation work out?
It’s been all over the internet the last couple of days that an employee of HTC, the Taiwanese company responsible for a vast assortment of smartphones over the few years, stepped up and informally apologized for the Thunderbolt: the first phone to release with 4G LTE and the biggest hunk of crap which ever hit the shelves. (You can’t even argue it, it’s not even close.) But, is simply apologizing enough?
As a former
Thunderbolt Blunderbolt owner, I don’t think so.
Last year, Microsoft and Sony Computer Entertainment took a huge dump all over my dreams, as well as my predictions, when they decided to not announce the next generation Xbox and the PlayStation 4. This year, they took a huge dump all over my dreams again by announcing them early, the PS4 having been announced a few weeks ago and the new Xbox being unveiled a few weeks from now.
So what’s happening at E3 this year and what will we be up to?
A few short days ago, he was falsely accused by Reddit of being one of the Boston marathon bombers. Today, Sunil Tripathi – who has been missing for over a month – has been positively identified as the body found in the Providence river, according to his family.
It looks like Microsoft’s finally opening the floodgates on the next Xbox (they won’t call it the Xbox 720) or at least, it certainly seems so based on an email I just got from Microsoft which contained nothing but the subject line “In 27 days…” and a biggie-sized graphic which says they’re either unveiling the new Xbox or they’re announcing who will be taking over Microsoft when the people running it die.
Read on to see what I saw.
Ahhh, 2013: The Year My Phone Failed. Things have been crap so far this year, but hopefully I’m going to have more luck this time around.
I’ve owned a lot of phones over the years. The first was one of those old-fashioned bag phones that looked like a really lame purse with an antenna. From there I had one of the big brick phones, a bunch of flip phones from companies like Samsung, LG and Motorola; even that Nokia that was so popular back in the day… you know, the one they made clear cases and flashing batteries and all that crap for? Yeah, I had one.
Remember an (awesome) little game called Mirror’s Edge? Did you know that game, among others, caused quite a ruckus because some idiot went and trademarked the word “edge” in a number of forms, including “The Edge”, “Gamer’s Edge”, “Edge” and “Cutting Edge”, then claimed a bunch of people and companies owed him in the form of damages for trademark infringement.
Yeah, that happened.
It’s long been developing that the people in Hollywood think they are the end-all, be-all. They think they are the bee’s knees, the cat’s pajamas, the dog’s bollocks. They also seem to think that since they make lots of money, drive fancy cars and end up in tabloids over DUI arrests (complete with coke-faced mug shots), they can now dictate policy to the lawmakers.
In what I can only describe as an unbelievable stroke of jackassery, Ubisoft Montreal CEO Yannis Mallat has gone on record saying that he believes console owners are ready for hardware that requires always-on internet connections. I can only guess this happened very shortly after he took a rather sharp blow to the head with a large, heavy object.
