Thought of the Day: “Infinity Ward Respawned” or “Obvious Pun!”

April 26, 2010 Leave a comment

I am sure I am not the only one who has thought of this pun, but for some odd reason, I haven’t seen any gaming website use it yet.

No one else thinks the now practically defunct Infinity Ward has respawned at Respawned Entertainment? 😛

They Said Whaaaat?: “I Shot My Horse, But He’s Awesome!” or “For Shame Activision, For Shame!”

You know, I promised myself to stay out of this whole Activision/Infinity Ward business, primarily because the topic is being covered by every news gaming site out there, and I had nothing new to add. However, this was just too good to pass up.

Upon hearing that Activision is raising its Q1 fiscal outlook based on the more-than-stellar sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, EA’s Jeff Brown had this to say:

“This is kind of like announcing: ‘The race horse I shot last month has won the Triple Crown!‘”

Oh Jeff! You always crack me up!

“Modern Machinima” or “No Russian”

I don’t know how I missed this piece of comedic gold before, but here it is:

“Massive Effect” or “Dragon Dominance”

Top steam downloads for last week:

  1. Dragon Age: Origins Digital Deluxe Edition.
  2. Dragon Age: Origins.
  3. Left 4 Dead 2.
  4. Borderlands.
  5. Torchlight.
  6. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
  7. Football Manager 2010.
  8. Mass Effect.
  9. Shattered Horizon.
  10. Aion Standard Edition and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

Dragon Age went all Grey Warden on every competitor’s ass, it seems. But what really stood out to me was Mass Effect making it to the top-ten list some two odd years past its release. Talk about mileage!

Perhaps BioWare’s latest release sparked interest in the old title, much like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare made it to the list the same week ModernWarfare 2 was being released to the masses. Whatever the cause, the fact that a space (not everyone’s cup of tea) SRPG (not everyone’s cup of tea either) can continue to be successful years past release is a testament to stellar production values and the longevity of the title.
