As I mentioned earlier, I'm hosting another video game panel at a local convention here in Orlando. Originally when I became a part of it I suggested my usual video game trivia show, but they didn't seem overly interested. Ultimately it was decided I'd run a classic cartoon showroom instead, which was good by me. However, it turns out there's going to be a bigwig from EA Sports who will be attending, and he's going to talk about that cancelled basketball game they didn't release from a few years back. Since they had him, now they asked if I'd throw down with a video game panel too. Yikes! I'm still happy to do it, but that only leaves me a little over a month to get my shit together. Needless to say I'm a bit nervous.

So with that being said it's time to break out the little black book and find out if I know anyone in the business anymore. I know my Atlus contact left. I'm crossing my fingers my Capcom one is still around. In the meantime I have to start hitting the phones and internet again for contact info. If anyone would like to place their bets on who writes me back, who helps me out, and who says fuck you, this will be the place.

Please contact Arika and ask for a new Endless Ocean. I emailed their sales team but get mailer daemon failure notices.

Contact SEGA and ask them to explain (if they can get the dicks out of their mouth) why Yakuza 5 has not been brought out in the west, even if just digitally and with subs).

Actually, that probably won't help your cause.

Ask them instead, "How they go the upcoming Sonic Boom to look so gooood?" and then sucker punch them with my question.

I will absolutely not do that, on the off chance that my email causes a new Endless Ocean game to be made. I couldn't live with myself.

Weekend of August the 1st. - www.CONjureflorida.com (I still hate that name). It's a small event since this is a first year con, but there's a lot of cool stuff going on like a mermaid pool party and a few good guests.

Is there a secret to navigating that site? Every link keeps me on the same page.

I'll tell you what, if I get them to respond to me I'll forward this along with a request for an interview courtesy of GameUnder.net.
