What Happened This Week – Zynga All the Way

All right, back in business!  Just in time to let you all know that, naturally, there will not be a podcast on Christmas Day.  Enjoy the holidays everyone, and I’ll see you all in the new year!  Until then let us dig into the bigger happenings this week (and 2011 in general), including the following:

  • Zynga went public and entered its first day of trading, starting at $10/share and never quite getting higher.  You may want to get popcorn for this.
  • Nintendo partnered with the Louvre to use its 3DS as an interactive display guide.  Yes, that Louvre.
  • Meanwhile, DJ Deadmau5 lost and then recovered pretended to lose a demo PS Vita in a cab, while a boat named the PlayStation Vita was capsized at sea.  What’s the over/under on these being roundabout marketing schemes versus ill omens?
  • Square Enix got hacked, with the scope of the theft not known but the company certain no credit card information was leaked.  Affected users were heard to collectively say “Oh no, not again.”
  • CD Projekt pursued Witcher 2 pirates, stating that being anti-DRM and anti-piracy aren’t mutually exclusive.  I am forced to conclude they are trying to confuse the internet, and it’s working.
  • 2011 roundup: my own Top 5 for major events in the gaming industry, from the awesome to the shocking to the just plain sad.
  • Naughty Dog claims The Last of Us will have a heavy story focus (oh, boy), Pokemon partakes in a most unusual crossover, and much more! Continue reading ‘What Happened This Week – Zynga All the Way’ »

Pokemon/Nobunaga’s Ambition Crossover Announced, Bewildering Many

In an apparent bid to claim the title of “least expected announcement of the year,” Pokemon is being crossed over with Nobunaga’s Ambition, a Tecmo Koei series of strategy games set in Japan’s Sengoku period. The so-named Pokemon + Nobunaga’s Ambition is set for a DS release sometime next year, though apart from featuring characters from both franchises little was revealed during the announcement.

All I can say is, it’s a shame this didn’t come out sometime in mid-2006. It would’ve been a perfect follow-up to a certain notorious press conference that spawned numerous misconceptions about feudal Japan.
