Activision Cancels Guitar Hero Franchise, Hundreds Lose Their Jobs

Image

Not only did Activision kill one of the best and most innovative game franchises of the past ten years, they closed the studios behind the stellar franchise. 500 jobs lost! A mind blowing figure. How could this happen you ask? Well the answer is quite simple really. Activision is a bunch of greedy, money grubbing, sons of bitches over saturated the market with their Guitar Hero and DJ Hero franchises. According to Wikipedia, from 2005 to 2010 Activison released an astounding sixteen games from the Hero franchise. Sixteen! What responsible company would do that to a franchise? One that is only concerned with squeezing every last ounce of money out of franchise.  Image

This is what the guitar hero franchise looks like now… Thanks Activision

I’ll miss Guitar Hero, Dj Hero, and Rock Band. I just hope this never happens to another beloved franchise. I’m an optimist so I have faith in publishers though. (maybe i’m a bit naive) They’ll learn from Activision’s catastrophic mistake, and never do this again. Right? Right???

Mass Effect 3 Is COMING!!! (soon)

Yes ladies and gentlemen. (but let’s face it, mostly gentlemen) Mass Effect 3 is almost upon us, and to celebrate ME3 and my favorite game series of all time here is an awesome gallery of ME3 images to old you over. Now if you’ll excuse me the ME3 demo is seductively calling my name.

Is Mass Effect 3 better with Kinect?

The answer: Fuck yeah. 

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play a video game if you had three hands? Well wonder no more, because it’s the best thing since jello (because everyone loves Jello). That’s what it feels like to play ME3 with Kinect. Never have I felt so in control and connected to a game. Ordering you squad mates to use their powers and take cover feels amazing, and all you have to do is speak. It’s nothing less than genius, and it’s an experience not to be missed if you consider yourself a fan of Mass Effect or just cool shit in general. So yes, ME3 is indeed better with Kinect.
