For me, these titles marched the worst elements of Japanese role-playing in front of a projector, happily showing the most important kind of defects in the world stretching painful.

Despite our insistence that video games do not actually change our brain with a psychopathic mass murderer whose eyeballs and scrotum were simply injected with powder extracted from a raging Raging Bull, you think would do a better job not to attack anything that moves. Maybe I was spoiled by overexposure to modern sensationalist yellow fog press all, but it is really taking the apparently People try to do everything in the industry in a fight. The idea that I realized when I heard the rumor about the PlayStation 4 (Orbis or if you really want to call it) and its use according to rumor-fighting games functionality, and if it is not totally and completely false, it would be a great success in the fight against the games used, the legitimization of the "Go Online" system on a scale of the console at all. see you there? "The Battle"?

Dragon Age 2 was dragged in a fight with
Witcher 2 , EA (again again) withdrew its games on steam to drive sales in the beginning, and I don ' I need not mention PC vs. consoles, or wars between them on the console.
There are two things that revolve around the question. One is my old-X-can-beat-up-your-Y (nuh-uh!) phenomenon, as illustrated by four RPG there. It appears around almost everything there is, therefore, why it would be better if you just not so angry when peoplethings that we do not like a - gasp, hyperventilate, soaking up the tears with a tissue - were hit by a couple of millennia now, so I'll stick with that

1.4 billion videos viewed in February for the online network, including nearly 400 meters of mobile devices
video entertainment network now attracts Machinima 166m unique visitors per month, which are the 1.4 billion videos viewed in February 2012. Aimed primarily at 13 to 34 years, men who see their videos on YouTube, its scope is now leading pure partnerships with the world of traditional television.
president and co-founder Philip Debevoise statistics presented in an interview on stage at the Cannes conference MIPCube, explaining how Machinima has evolved from a site focused on the original animations created with Games like Halo and Call of Duty, to his role as funding today show the action live in the genres of science fiction, comedy and horror.50%
Machinima public in North America, 40% and 10% in Europe in the world. Over 4000 producers are making the content of your network.
"We create new stars in the network," said DeBevoise. "Our stars and our network come from the audience, there is therefore no credibility we have as the voice of this generation and the community is very real."
No wonder the U.S. television companies were getting involved. AMC produced a web series called Torn Apart digital shorts to promote the Walking Dead series, which generated 6 million views on Machinima on a couple of weeks, according DeBevoise.
- Meanwhile, Lionsgate has funded the second series of zombie comedy Bite Me, after his first was a ratings success of Machinima. Marks on the side, Motorola has sponsored science fiction drama RCVR, whose quality has been compared to shows like The X-Files and Lost.
- Machinima focuses on global expansion in 2012, now seeking to fund and promote local content in local languages ??in countries outside North America, while s associating with established media companies whenever possible. The company already has an office in London.
"I really do not think that would really generate forcing an audience to go to a specific destination as a dot-com," said DeBevoise, who also praised fund 100 billion for YouTube support companies and producers who make original content for the service.
