Repost: Interview with CEO Martin Herdina and Dan Taylor of fatfoogoo

As I mentioned in fatfoogoo inks deal with Digital River, I talked with CEO Martin Herdina and Dan Taylor of fatfoogoo.

Repost: Inktree and Big FOLD: The Next Step in Gaming Strategy

Some people might remember a little game that released during the holiday season called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Along with that game came the strategy guide, assisting some players on the ins-and-outs.

What some might not have realized was the Limited Edition of that strategy guide included a hands-free tri-fold laminated map guide with the multiplayer maps shown in an aerial view.

I ventured into Nyko’s booth during E3 not really knowing what to expect from the accessory maker. Since they make accessories for pretty much every system, what would they want to show during the event?

It was something I wasn’t expecting: the PlayStation 3 Raven controller.

Repost: E3 2010: Square Enix

While my Square Enix booth appointment was the last day of E3, I had chances between meetings to play some of the titles on the show floor before. Square Enix looks to have a solid line-up for the Fall and their release-a-month plan keeps them in the news consistently. With their acquisition of Eidos, Square Enix increases their releases significantly and that showed this year.
