“Smile if you love Lemmings!”
Ah, it feels great to be writing about a game so burned into my skull. Normally I would re-visit an old game before doing a ‘Flashback’ on it – making sure I remember it well enough. Not necessary this time. These little idiots with their green mushroom-cuts were a pretty integral part of my childhood, were fairly consistently referenced by my sister and I. This was probably, in most part, because of the preference my friends and I had at the time for our own hair to be cut into mushrooms.
It seems the FPS supernerds of the world will forever be caught in the tired, old game of King of the Castle. Pretty inevitable, pretty obvious. Especially when it comes to Call of Duty VS Battlefield.
ZZzzZzz. . .
Activision (MW3) has filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum and wants transfer of ownership of a domain name. It seems that a very popular unofficial/parody Modern Warfare 3 website is redirecting itself to the official Battlefield 3 site (UPDATE: it is currently “under siege” and not redirecting anymore).
Activision is assuming that this is in retaliation to issuing the unofficial site a take-down notice. They previously sent the notice because they claimed the site infringed on copyright laws, seemed to be making commercial use of the domain name (with ads) and also because they probably just didn’t want shit to be leaked or talked about (made fun of) by these lifeless megadweebs, months before the games release in November of this year.
Boring. . . Funny “retaliation”, although I’m sure Activision wouldn’t give a shit about the redirecting if the domain name wasn’t modernwarfare3.com and clearly popular because of it, but who isn’t tired of talking and hearing about these two games in the same sentence. . .
