A quickie with Steve 3!

Another quick one for you. As you may or may not know I work in the video games industry (I guess?) and it’s not exactly in great shape. The console generations have gone on far too long and mobile “gaming” is terrifying major global publishers for some ungodly reason. Try charging €49.99 for Angry Birds and we will see what happens. #TheMoreYouKnow #Message.

I remember the good old days of working in a games shop and to avoid going into a massive blog here il leave it there. Fucking Nintendo…

Today I used this sentence as a little girl handed me a copy of The Sims 3 Showtime : Katy Perry Special Edition… “I’m really sorry but we just sold out of the Katy Perry edition but I have the regular edition and it’s €5 cheaper, would you like the regular edition instead? Sorry about this.”

I remember the good old days of working I’m a games shop, a time before Katy Perry editions of things. What next?! EA and Activision are too busy fighting the Call of Duty v Battlefield war to realise that all it needs is “Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 : Katy Perry Edition” and “Battlefield 4 : Katy Perry Super Mega Edition Kart 3D” to turn the industry on it’s head. These lads could be drinking champagne with breakfast, lunch and dinner with this kind of GENIUS marketing. Uhhh…

Fuck. My. Life.

    FUCK ACTIVISION, EA and NINTENDO. They have taken the good out of everything, I hear Activision have the rights to Fifty Shades of Gray The Videogame, so now they can go fuck themselves with a Move controller
