Hey WordPress friends,
Since it’s been so long since I last posted here, I’ve decided start the blog over from scratch, so I migrated over to Posterous. You can find the new blog at the old address, Games4thought.com.
I hope you will all come see my new site real soon!
In case you haven’t heard (Which you probably havent because I’ve never talked about it on this blog) I am now a columnist at Kotaku! I’m running the Kotaku Game Club, a discussion group where we play a game together and discuss it, chapter by chapter. Yes, it’s called the “game club” because it’s just like a “book club”, but with video games.
SCEA and developer Sucker Punch announced today that long-awaited super hero sequel Infamous 2 will be hitting stores on June 7th. The release coincides with the beginning of E3, which could be an ominous sign; syncing the game’s release may force critics to put their reviews on hold to cover the conference – using a strategy like that COULD be seen as a not-so-subtle way of saying that the game might not hold up to journalistic scrutiny. (Of course, it could also simply be coincidence, but that doesn’t make for an interesting story, does it.) Of course, since the original Infamous was a great game, Sucker Punch probably deserves the benefit of the doubt.
