  • 01:08:47: I hope this kid really understands just what he's done... http://bit.ly/dQ70W2
  • 01:43:16: Fun times: Dragon Quest VI GET! With a plushie! And some SHITTY trade-ins. God, I hate Gamestop.
  • 01:44:03: Also reacquired Radiant Historia for $10. That's less than I got on the initial trade-in, so I'm happy.
  • 02:49:22: Ooh, ROTK IV is on the PSN? Time to put my money where my mouth is. Yes, I can emulate it, but Koei needs to be supported.
  • 02:49:56: (Yes, I'm aware it's solely to build awareness for Dynasty Warriors 7. It's still a good version of the game)
  • 03:02:39: 496 followers. Quick! Get me to 500 before the spammers and "internet entrepreneurs" unfollow me because I didn't follow them!
  • 13:00:59: I notice @chupacaubrey got a new gig. Excellent. More PR needs to care about their work like that.
  • 20:32:52: My first impressions of the 3DS: a resounding "ehhhhhhh".
  • 20:59:08: There's a call for Twitter to expand beyond 140 characters. Because software that does it for us automatically just isn't *good enough*.
  • 21:23:58: So! What did I learn at the EA event that I can actually talk about? Let me count the ways!
  • 21:25:42: For one: I'm unimpressed with the 3DS, as stated. All the 3D does is separate images depending on the slider bar. That's it.
  • 21:25:58: For an example of how it works, cross your eyes gradually. It's a lot like that.
  • 21:26:50: It's possible I need to try the 3DS on another game. I only tried it with Madden 3D, and that game is NOT going to be good. Save your $$$.
  • 21:27:58: Also, apparently, EA's poor PR staff only answers questions with "we're not talking about that yet". Even things like "paper or plastic".
  • 21:28:55: I also learned it's considered acceptable to demo a AAA title "privately", while a large portion of the press AT THE EVENT are shut out.
  • 21:29:23: EA. I took a 90 minute train from Stratford CT to come to your event. Don't pull that dick move on me. Show me everything, or fuck off.
  • 21:38:38: I also learned that a disconcerting number of people stuck around the big-name titles and ignored the smaller ones. Like, totally.
  • 21:39:11: Therefore, I couldn't really do much with Dragon Age II or Fight Night Champion. That's OK, everyone else is. I'd rather pay attention to
  • 21:39:46: smaler stuff. There's a couple of lesser known games I can't quite talk about yet, but are looking at being very good.

Even though it's not out until next week?

Seconded. Perhaps he means Radiata Stories? (Some say Radiant Historia is either a prequel or a sequel to said game, but I do not believe so.)

I did mean to say Radiata Stories.

Whoops, meant to say Radiata Stories.
