I’m Just Askin’…
Are we so hard up for another hit of Harry Potter that we’ll drop $90 million on a film adaptation of some 15-year-old’s D&D campaign? I was rolling up characters with names like “Galbatorix” when I was his age and no one was waving a fat publishing check at me.
Why do those Apple commercials make me like Mac owners even less? I like both John Hodgman and Justin Long, and yet when I see those ads, I want to smack the latter into next week. Smug little bastard. Yeah, I’m sure your little box is great, and I’ll get one as soon as I don’t ever want to run any third-party game software.
Speaking of advertising, why are the chain retailers still promoting the PS3 and the Wii? Everyone who wants one already knows about them, and it’s not like they’ll be in stock when they get there. Same goes for game software: if you have a system, you already know you want something to play, and if you don’t, they’re very expensive coasters.
