Today's top 10 tweets from the gaming industry - 4/26/12
What did you miss about video games today? What were some of the gaming industry's most popular people tweeting about? I'll give you 10 tweets I found awesome, informative, weird, funny, stupid, or whatever, and then I'll give some commentary on it. Also, we've gotten a few submissions from fans that have been retweeted by developers, publishers, or other gaming journalists; so as long as I have one to put up, I'll include a fan submission too.
It's weird — I keep throwing my money at the monitor, but I still don't have a copy of Rayman Legends.
Yes you can! And it's delicious! Have you ever been to Original House of Pancakes? They make this huge, like, apple pancake bake! It's ridiculous. I love making pancakes, my favorites being strawberry-banana and banana-walnut. I want to try to make an orange creamsicle pancake but don't know how to do it. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
No sh*t. You know what pissed me off? CoD Elite in the first place. I mean, I get the idea of it, but I think that it was just a ridiculous effort to make more money off of something that could've just been an added new feature to the game.
The Hurricane fan in me wants to say the _, but I can't kid myself. It'll just be a team from the SEC. It's always a team from the SEC. Bullsh*t.
I don't trust any game with the word 'forge' in the title — ever since Hunted: The Demon's Forge.
This gives me an erection... but it's a sad erection, because I know the Avengers does indeed have to end at one point.
I don't know about that. I've been told that EA must've paid me for giving the score I did. Alas, they did not. Mr. Sterling was talking about indie games... I think.
Sorry, after I saw 'BioShock' I went into a stupor. I love that game. What did the rest of the tweet say?
Yay! League of Legends makes the Tweets of the Day! I didn't see an Ashe remake coming, and then I learned it's a visual one. I think all of the original champions could use visual remakes, so this is very welcome.
Tweet of the Day
Our Tweet of the Day goes to Darth Vader (@DepressedDarth). Today was 'Take your child to work day' — even at GameZone.
I'd feel bad for Darth, but he doesn't realize the chaos comes from having an 8-year-old, 6-year-old, and almost 3-year-old running around your office and causing chaos. Lightsabers and Nerf guns (not used to kill nerfherders) never seemed dangerous to me, until today. Nevertheless, funny tweet.
Fan Submitted Tweet
Our first fan submission comes from Ben T. @cave_bo. He had a hilarious tweet that was retweeted by @thatgamecompany. Thanks for the submission and making us laugh. Make sure follow Ben and thatgamecompany on Twitter.
Katsuhiro Harada, the awesome creative mind behind Tekken Tag Tournament 2, retweeted my interview that I had with him. The guy loves Tequila and is a pretty cool guy. Make sure you check out the interview and listen to the sound clip of him saying he loves scotch.
