Weep for the future of gaming!

I'm 95% sure that that's sarcasm, but there are enough people who think that just because bad games are making money that all games are going to be that way that I'm not sure. The Transformers movies are bad, and they make tons of money. Doesn't mean movie companies are only making action popcorn flicks.

Yeah, tongue is planted firmly in cheek. I do wonder what other celebrity cash grabs are going to come from this.

Kim Kardashian makes 85 Million from her silly freemium mobile game - Almost 3 times as much as she made from doing whatever the heck it is she did to make money as a celebrity last year...

Weep for the future of gaming!

If I had the ability to weep, I would weep that people keep feeding a pompous narcissistic gas bag like Fatass Kardashian they will never go away...

...


So, Fred Durst is streaming on Twitch right now.


Yes, the singer from Limp Biskit.


Well, now he's playing the drums while waiting for the map to spawn, but he's still gaming.


He's still better than some of the "professional" streamers though.

I think Smash will prompt a HUGE number of people to purchase WiiU's, though, especially since the competitive smash scene is coming back in a big way.

The question I have is, haven't those people already bought a WiiU? If they're that die-hard into a Nintendo franchise, then surely they would have got one already. 


There was a huge boost in sales after Mario Kart 8 was released, so apparently not.

In further Kim Kardashian news, the EPA's twitter account sent this yesterday:



Needless to say, folks were not amused. And many were confused, such as this guy:

And behold the might of Stormwind! Er, Disney Infinity's PS4 Collector's Set!





No idea of the cost, but the non-machine specific sets are $74.99 in the US, so this will likely be more.

More Disney Infinity stuff. A Guardians of the Galaxy set later this year:



And this too:



And Gamora looks disturbingly Disney-Princessish in that.
