Video: New Sega “CEO” Announces The Dreamcast 2

Keith Appicary Sega CEO

Okay, not really.

Keith Apicary, portrayed by actor/comedian/youtube dancer Nathan Barnatt, went to Sega and filmed a hilarious video by pretending to announce his biggest dream: the Dreamcast 2. He’s video is nothing sort of making fun of the other hardware companies, and parodying all the other accessories Sega will ship with this fictitious new console, by poking fun at Sega’s history. An example is the ludicrous idea, the Sega Nomad: Sega CD portable gaming system.

Watch the video after the break.

Ubisoft EXEC. Comments On Why Watch Dogs Was Delayed; Feels It Would’ve Been The Biggest Launch Game

Watch Dogs

 

Back at E3, Watch Dogs was promised to be available on the first day of this new-generation of consoles. Then in October, a month before millions of gamers were getting ready to purchase the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Ubisoft unexpectedly notified the press that the game was delayed until spring 2014.

It would be an understatement to assume gamers, including myself, were disappointed. But even more dangerously, Ubisoft was about to take a brunt of the heat from their own shareholders. While recoverable, their shares dropped dramatically.

Video Game Awards; The Winners and Losers (Updating…)

VGXLogo

 

Tonight will be the 9th time the Video Game Awards will grace the stage, and television. Over the years, the award ceremony has been met with mostly criticism. The negative press seemed to have stemmed from the idea Spike TV was consistently trying to create a hip-award show, something that was similar to the MTV awards, rather than the film industry’s annual staple: the Academy Awards.

Tonight will be different then past shows. This year, the network, along with the producers, are listening to the gamers, or so they say. While the awards will be handed out, the acceptance speech will be prerecorded in 30 second clips, so other content can be the main focus. Viewers can expect to experience more trailers, more news and live demos on stage in an apartment. Basically, it sounds more like E3, with a few awards handed out in-between breaks.

After the jump, we will update all the winners and losers, and all the nominations. We will also be updating the site with each trailer, and live demo that is shown. (more…)
