EA didn’t change much at E3

EA’s press conference at E3 this year didn’t do much to change perspective on the company’s murky last year.

Electronic Arts had a very up and down year in 2017. From March’s extremely underwhelming Mass Effect Andromeda which actually had content cancelled after the fact. to the shutdown of Visceral and their much anticipated in-the-works Star Wars project, all the way until the lootbox tied progression atrocity that was the Star Wars Battlefront II launch – nothing seemed to go their way.

The future of this site

A brief update on the future of Booster-Blogs and what content will be posted in the future.

As I have taken on more and more responsibility with my college courses, personal projects and other ventures in the past six months, I have had to sideline this website and all of the content I had planned for both the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018.

I had several articles and other posts pinned in drafts for months and just never got around to adding the finishing touches and posting the final products. This isn’t a knock on what I was working on, more that I just ran out of time to post them when they would have been relevant [example: a Justice League movie deep dive].

EA’s Press Conference Recap – E3 2017

Each year it feels like the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 starts earlier and earlier. With that being said, I took a day to process the information shown in the first major conference of E3 2017.

Electronic Arts or EA is one of the biggest game developing companies in the world and this year they were also the first of the large-scale conferences that large developers hold each year to show fans their latest games or updates.

New Pokémon games? What happened in the Pokémon Direct?

To many, Nintendo’s Pokémon Direct that happened early on Tuesday morning was disappointing.

Being heavily involved in the Pokémon community on YouTube, Twitter and pretty much anywhere else I got to see the reactions to those announcements even while I was unable to watch the actual event. Continue reading “New Pokémon games? What happened in the Pokémon Direct?”

Is Cartoon Network doomed?

Cartoon Network is one of the reasons so many people, including myself, have such a fond memory and passion for animation. They were one of the three main sources of cartoons for American audience alongside Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.

 

While the animated motion picture market was, and still is, dominated mostly by Disney; Nick and Cartoon Network have been battling it out for the tops spot in the television department for nearly three decades now.
