Challenge everything

Steven Spielberg, has agreed to develop three original games with Electronic Art's Los Angeles studios.

Work has already started on the first of the three projects, which EA says will be a next generation game which appeals to a broad audience.
The deal is a further sign of how Hollywood and the games industry are moving closer together.

Insiders expect the first project to be a tautly scripted tour-de-force, where a relativley inexperienced new auteur brilliantly redefines an industry - injecting enthusiam that spawns a new golden age of gaming.

Unfortunately it's likely that this will be followed up by an expensive, sprawling self-indulgent game, most likely in sepia. Gamers are looking forward to a new level of clunky emotional manipulation in games that go on about an hour too long.

Mr Spielberg is likely to get help with character design from his long-time collaborator and colleague George Lucas. Oh dear.

you have a pretty cool blog here another one of my favourites is a work from home site. Its all about, need I say it, working from home. I think people should have the choice to build their own income instead of somebody else’s. Freedom of well being and all of that...anyway take a look see what you think.

I have another blog which I've just started, I've been asking a load of people for their opinions. When I looked at your site I realised you know what your doing. My blog is www.adminsupervisor.blogspot.com I want to write stuff that people want to read about. Do you have any suggestions?? I mean blogs are really cool, so many people and so many lives, you gotta love it.

Anyways, keep it up, hope to hear from you soon :)

So much praise from a stranger Adrian, you're not a colleague of Rod's are you?

If not I think you two should hook up.

They were colleagues but Adrian and Rob got married yesterday. I am surprised you didn't get an invite to the wedding because they're alway talking about how great DriverChris is and how they would sell their souls to Satan for a blog as good as yours. That is if they hadn't already sold it to set up a 419 scheme last year.

And no - it's not a spam link. Trust me. Heh heh. No really.

It gets worse...

"A good movie will bring you inside of itself just by the sheer brilliance of the director/writer/production staff. But in the future, you will physically be inside the experience, which will surround you top, bottom, on all sides. ... I've invented it, but because patent is pending, I can't discuss it right now." - Steven Spielberg.

It's a really slippery slope oncer you start believing your own publicity.

I think Public Enemy said it best:-

Don't, don't! Don't believe the hype.
