Today’s Tuesday, so that mean, as it has done just about every Tuesday for the past two years (has it really been two years? Really?), I talk games and games-related stuff with Kiwi FM’s resident tech overlord and the most connected guy I know, Glenn “Wammo” Williams.
This week, though, rather than review a specific game we chatted about the hubbub surround the launch of Duke Nukem Forever where a PR guy handling public relations duties for 2K spouted off on Twitter a little too much. He got the sack from the 2K account as a result.
We also talked a little about whether DNF fitted into the modern generation of gaming anymore. but anyway, I couldn’t talk about the game as I still don’t have a copy yet – but interestingly, there were developments on that today.
2K’s man in Australia emailed today asking if I’d received the copy of DNF he’d sent over. I said I hadn’t but had send the signed NDA back almost two weeks ago. I joked that I thought I’d been blacklisted because I hadn’t got a copy. He has replied to my email. Maybe that is a bad sign.
So enjoy the video. No doubt, as usual I’ll ramble something shocking and go off topic and sound like a blithering idiot. I’ve long said I have a gift for words but not a voice for radio. I’ll let you be the judge of that.
Me? I’m off to play some Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D on my 3DS tonight while the missus watches Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice. I think OoT 3D sounds like the better proposition, don’t you?
UPDATE: After watching the video again, I’ve decided I need to make my background more gamey as it looks decidingly middle-income surburbia and very un-man cave and game room. Any suggestions?
