By popular demand…
Mr. Hudson is weary from celebrating the massive success of the release of the Extended Cut DLC (still available on XBOX LIVE and PLAYSTATION NETWORK), and will not be answering any more questions tonight.
The Extended Cut has only been out for less than a day but it has already received overwhelming critical praise and won several prestigious industry awards, including “Downloadable Ending of The Year” from Kotaku and the “Excellente Fin” from the Académie de Joueurs in Paris. You may all sleep soundly tonight knowing that Mr. Hudson completely forgives you for your lack of vision.
Guys, I have to stop posting Mass Effect captions.
The sudden and dramatic rise in popularity of this blog has apparently attracted EA’s attention.
EA has sent me a cease and desist notice that says that I can, under no circumstances, continue to post screencaps from EA titles that will weaken their brand or otherwise encourage people to mock their games. If I continue to do so, EA says it will persue legal action against me. While this news may make you want to unfollow this blog, please do not. I will explain.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that this blog will now be reorganized and continue on as an official promotional site for EA, specifically, the new Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC, which is available now on XBOX LIVE and PLAYSTATION NETWORK.
To help facilitate my promotion of the DLC, EA has graciously allowed me to Skype with Casey Hudson, the Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series, and relay any questions you may have directly to him. Please make sure your asks do not include the following words or phrases: “irresponsible,” “what the fuck/heck,” “you let us down,” or “cross-eyed canadian crack baby.” These asks will automatically be deleted.
Please send questions. I’ve talked to Casey, he’s a consummate gentleman, and he’s explained to me that while EA’s tactics may seem forceful at first, they are actually the greatest creative force in video games today, and are unswervingly dedicated to the artistic advancement of the medium as a whole.
EA’s lawyers have also explained to me that since this is now an officially EA owned blog, anyone who unfollows us will be taken to court for conspiring to undermine EA’s brand. Please, don’t unfollow. Please don’t hurt EA.
Also, please continue to submit captions. Though I legally can’t post them, EA would like to use them in their upcoming lawsuit against youtube. I now realize that while youtube’s bastardized captions may be funny at first, they’re actually damaging and hurtful to EA. For every crass and unimaginative picture I’ve posted, EA has been forced to fire eleven employees. I am truly sorry for the pain and suffering my actions have caused. I sincerely hope my future actions will be restitution for the anguish I’ve caused EA.
Another stipulation of my plea bargin agreement with EA is that I must include links to their site in every future post. Please, go to their site and purchase any of their fine titles.
Mr. Hudson is ready for questions.
