Gaming News: "Classless Crap"
Posted: Thursday February 24th, 2005 by

I don't really expect people to get all of this joke, and just hope that the final line is Ted enough to carry the rest of the panel.

For those of you that are interested in what's going on in the gaming industry though, Eidos (developer of Tomb Raider, Thief, Deus Ex, Hitman, Soul Reaver, etc.) has been looking for someone to buy them for quite some time. And recently media mogul Ruper Murdoch expressed interest in breaking into the game industry. [ more info ] Sooo... put two and two together... - GameIndustry.Biz [ more info ]

The commentary about Fox in the comic is really just a means to an end. It's a way for me to get folks talking about big media buying into the game industry. I certainly don't want to get into any kind of political discussions, I was really just using the FOX examples to move the plot of the comic forward. To clarify... FOX is a branch of News Corp, Mr. Murdoch's company.

What I would like to talk about however is how you guys feel about these huge media conglomerates digging their boney fingers into our gaming industry.

Today's Pimpage: I'm wearing the Vini, Vidi, Lusi shirt from the GU Store.
