I had almost forgot about the Nvidia Shield, but if that wireless PC streaming works out, I could be convinced. Speaking of streaming, any time the 360 adds an app, I can’t help but think, “Yeah, that could be cool on the next Xbox.” Shaq returning to video games is a dumb and glorious idea, but not as dumb as Silicon Knights/Precursor Games continue to act in crowdfunding their game. Some companies should not be allowed to talk to the public directly.
The last few days in headlines
- And now, they’ve opened a Kickstarter for Shadow of the Eternals, too. We get it, you want our money, now. Stop being so douchey about it.
- Shaqfighter has been trademarked. Every generation should have its own Shaq-fu.
- Indie game super sale. Packaging up great games with lesser known ones is a good way to get me to try new things.
- Take-Two financial wrap-up. More revenue. Great sales from Borderlands 2, NBA 2K13, XCOM: Enemy Unknown. BioShock Infinite was a beast out of the gate.
- Defiance game adds TV tie-in content. How many episodes in are we now?
- Nvidia Shield headed to retailers in June for $349. Android-powered, mobile, wirelessly stream PC games.
- Twitch.tv App is now live on Xbox 360. Cool start, would be nice if I could watch everyone that I follow.
