As reported on Giant Bomb, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, in layman’s terms, set out a hit on former Infinity Ward leaders Jason West and Vince Zampella, telling Activision’s IT director Thomas Fenady to “dig up dirt” on the men who shaped Call of Duty in order to fire them. This news comes from the recently ended lawsuit between Activision and West and Zampella.
Activision, in their infinite knowledge, decided the world needed a new Family Guy game. Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is the name of said game, and it’s due out this fall. Other than the news that the voice cast and writers will be working on it, no new information has been released. Knowing Activision, it will be a franchise, so be prepared for that! I know I’m not.
SXSW’s first panel of the day didn’t go so smoothly with technical difficulties constantly messing up the event. Microphones erratically changed volumes and the projector wasn’t working at first. Still, the insight that the journalists had despite the technicalities was interesting to say the least.
DLC is one the biggest innovations of the current generation and whether it be for better or worse, it seems like it’ll stay. I love video games and if developers produce downloadable content, or DLC, then I will happily buy them.

Here we are: the crud of the crop, the lowest of the low. The games featured on this list are the ones that I had the absolute least fun with; the ones which, after playing, led me to take a cold 10 minute shower with twenty bars of soap to wash off their pure bile. Hyperbole is fun. Let’s get to the list.
Genre: 2D Platformer | Developer: Blit / Christian Whitehead | Publisher: SEGA Platform: Xbox 360/PlayStation 3/Steam/iOS/Android/Windows Phone 7 Players: 1 | Rating: E (Everyone) SEGA is no stranger to porting its substantial collection of classic 90′s titles to modern hardware, especially when it comes to the Sonic franchise. These conversions have been solid but often bare-boned, with the games simply being emulated, upscaled, and dumped into a lazy-looking interface. Some [...]
I’m not one to merely sing the praises of graphics like they’re the only driving force behind a game’s quality, but suffice to say that this generation of games has allowed for some pretty impressive visual material.
