Omnilinkit 402 Interview....satire
Notice that I used the word satire in the title lest anyone think that 402 gave ibleedv20 an exclusive interview. Ahem! We wouldn't want that confusion.So before we get some breadcrumbs thrown our way by IW and 402 I proudly present this gem to you while planting tongue firmly in cheek.Let us not forget that as seriously as we take our game experience...It is still a game that we love.This is an audio interview so please click on the link.....Enjoy my mediocrity.
I was reading the latest interview 402 gave to Now Gamer and I was struck by the lovely job Robert did with it.He is a very wellspoken Community Manager who can express thoughts and company direction clearly and concisely when he is preloaded with the questions beforehand .Bravo to 402,Now gamer for the coup and forgive me if I am wrong ,the writer of the copy itself.
I have virtually no interest in the copy itself....What I am interested in is the lack of real substance from a journalistic point of view.Reading this sort of drivel for me is like ...eating my pillow in a bad dream.....forever and ever and ever....you get the point.I gave up eating those orange candy Circus Peanuts long ago when I realized just when you have had more enough of them you are compelled to have another and another and.....Oh I am repeating myself .....Like Iw and robert Bowling.
No one is going to ask Robert the questions that need asking.they are only going to ask Robert the questions Robert allows them to ask.IW I mean Activision.
So in the spirit of fair play and the respect to journalism that once existed long long ago in a galaxy far far.......enough already.I invited 402 to answer a series of questions that have never been asked before.And to my complete and utter surprise he agreed to dialogue with me under very strict rules and circumstances. 1/ All questions would be submitted one week beforehand and 2/Only questions answered would be asked
Never one to mind being made a fool of ,I jumped at the chance .Here is the Omnilinkit interviewe with Robert Bowling Titled the PC community/Enquiring minds want to know.
Bleed: Robert first I want to thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to address the PC Comunity and some of the questions we have relating to our favorite game.
Bleed: First off let me say a lot of people in the COD Community feel a certain amount of angst due to the lack of PC branding in the adverts shown to date.Is there a particular reason why PC has been left out of this campaign to date?
Bleed: I see.I have to tell you that's not going to make the community feel any better when they are waiting for any sign that they are not totally marginalized by consoles.Marginalized to the point where they feel unsure whether they will see Map&Mods tools even.Can you see ?
Bleed: Moving on...Is there or was there ever a focus on satisfying the PC Competitive players.What I mean is when a map is made do you ever address the likes and dislikes of the professional PC gamers?
Bleed: I didn't know that ! What I did notice is the promise of larger maps than COD4 had.If that is the case I guess Modders can practise their art and the stock maps could please the competitive guys.Lets hope this all comes together and we can keep the respect that comes with PC competitive gaming.
Bleed: I would like to pause for a bit with the questions and say,I never thought you would be as open and forthright as you are right now.In fact I didn't think you would be allowed or able to say as much as you have.Certainl.....
Bleed:Yes you do seem to jet around quite a bit and make a lot of freinds.
Bleed:.I love you too man.
Bleed:As we wind this up I wanted to ask...Is there any possibility that the PC game might be delayed until after the console versions are released.Can you make the release date with PC and could that be the reason we don't see PC anywhere in the advertisements.
Bleed: Well I take no umbrage at that.I have been called worse and speculator is the least of the worst of what I have been called.after all as you surely know this is all about fun and games in the end.But BOB at the same time there is so much work,sweat equity and love put in by this community that it would only take a nod .in our direction to dispel a lot of the speculation.I am not sure we have accomplished that in this interviewe.But be that as it may we are out of time .I would only invite you back to the community at a future date to help us learn more.I am sure there is a venue or two of journalistic excellence where you would be comfortable and shown respect.
