Olympic Night Notes

I’ve been working late into the night on a few long-term projects while the Olympics play on TV — with a notable time offset — so I figured I’d just stick with this option and call it a night.

  • I hate to be a curmudgeon, but porting a game available on Android devices to another Android devices isn’t really showing a great amount of confidence in the OUYA. It’s a nice touch if people really want to play that game, yet again, and it’s a good sign that a big publisher is getting behind the tech. But other than that: meh.
  • I’m not sure how I feel about games as a military recruiting tool, but it sounds like the next iteration of this has some interesting features that serve as a window to what war means to our current military.
  • I have to admire Persson for not letting the success of Minecraft go to his head. Seems like he’s pretty realistic about it.
  • I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: whether on the disc or not, charging 20 fins for a large roster update is just a different way to accomplish the “Super Deluxe Ultra Turbo Edition” business model. I do hope Capcom is learning from all this.
