I think anyone working in the gaming industry can tell you that gaming companies can make an amazing amount of garbage in the hope that enough people out there are fooled into buying it to make it profitable.
Personally I stick Pokemon and The Sims into that category but they are two of the largest games on the planet so I guess it’s different strokes for different folks.
But thisâ€¦ this is just not okay.
The Smurfs are back this year and obviously along with their hit movie is a million and one marketing opportunities and gaming is no different with a Smurf game in the works for the Nintendo DS.
But now we are told that there is a Wii game coming, except that it’s not a Smurf game at all really it’s simply Just Dance with Smurfs instead of people.. and that’s it. It’s a complete sell out that I wouldn’t mind if it was being sold at half price but I can pretty much guarantee it won’t be and is simply riding on the coattails of a movie that I am starting to seriously worry about.
I hope you’re happy Ubisoft you ruined my Saturday morning and forced me to work.
