RPS-ish At-ish E3: Day 3 – Sega – Now anyone who knows me that I spend quite a lot of time railing against how much the larger blogs, specifically Kotaku, suck. I spent a lot of time doing this – usually moaning about their ridiculous post titles, their lack of fact checking, etc.
So it was incredibly disappointing to learn that the minute I was under time pressure I did the exact same thing when it came to fact checking – I didn’t bother. In fact, it’s rather amusing that the Kotaku poster who covered Alpha Protocol wrote mostly the same thing as me (that it looks exactly the same as Mass Effect) but bothered to check his facts.
Boy, is my face red. Still, I have to say – I will never commit the crime of assumption again. Never.
RPS-ish At-Ish E3: Day 4 – Bethesda Softworks – Oh well, at least this post got a good response from the RPS readers. I do wish I’d been able to talk more about the questing/NPC interaction, but I was generally warned against it and frankly, half an hour wasn’t enough to learn more than “it’s really quite a lot like Oblivion” so I didn’t go too deeply into it.
RPS-ish At-Ish E3: Housecleaning – SOE – My first post on RPS post-E3, as I saw a lot of stuff I just couldn’t get written up in time (and my Sega post reminded me not to rush out a post just to get something up, as you’re more likely to get something wrong/overlook something). SOE’s showing was rather weak – very little in the way of content, and most shown using video – so it surprises me I wrote as much about it as I did.
I guess I just thought it was all kind of interesting.
