-Mats stated that the new Video Game law in California would still allow adults to purchase the game for kids… which I think is the whole point of the law. My mom wouldn’t buy GTA3 for me, but she did get me MGS3. It should be up to the parent to know what their kids are playing. This law (if we are reading into it correctly) would help accomplish this.
-Bond games have never been great (not even Goldeneye, even with its nostalgia). The only game I sort of liked was NightFire, only because you could play 4 player splitscreen on a tiny map with 4 bots (we always used 4 Yakuza) and explosive weapons only.
-Assassin’s Creed wasn’t expected to be a huge hit? Over 120 people worked on the game… it better be a hit.
-Infinity Ward has been very much well known ever since they created Medal of Honor… and then Call of Duty.
-Nice Ray Bradbury reference, and Inception was awesome… best Nolan movie since Memento.
See ya next week =)
Infinity Ward the company sure, but Vince Zampella and Jason West? They weren’t exactly as well known Cliff Bleszinski, Hideo Kojima, Ken Levine or even Ted Price.
Yeah, I guess I just knew Miyamoto and Ed Boone back in the day.
