Happy Holidays from the ECA!

December 23, 2008 -

Hal Halpin and the rest of the crew at the Entertainment Consumers Association want to wish GamePolitics readers a happy holiday season.

It has been a great 2008 for the ECA and its gamer-members. 2009 will be even better!

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Bah, ECA.  Humbug!

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

 Happy holidays to one and all

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Err why the full disclosure part? Fair enough on most news stories involving the ECA but "Here's a christmas card" would be hard for even jack thompson to twist into something other than a christmas card.

 

Well twist convincingly anyway

 

Well now that I think of it he'd have a hard time convincing me that grass is green...

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

I've always read the full disclosure thing as an FU to those that would try to twist or spin something out of it, like Jack... but not limited to him.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Happy holidays to the ECA. I hope that I will be a member soon... first I need to get some IP's out there...

Yes I have a WIP. Just wait and see.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Merry Christmas everyone!

My girl Katy's on there (bottom row, third from left).  Yay! ^_^

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Ugh, I can't stand her.  Talk about total overexposure for someone who's not even that talented.

Couldn't have said the bottom row on the right? Not like there are any other girls on there or anyone to the right of her.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

At the risk of sounding like an ingrate . . . ain't nothing worse than getting a Christmas card with no money in it.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

IF you guys want to know the positions and names of those in this card (and to see what Dennis looks like) here is the link:

It seems that Dennis is not on this card for some reason. Probably because he not technically part of the ECA management team.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

I, for one, am really curious what the average working day at the ECA is like. Looking at that picture, first thought that went through my head was...."....What do these people do again?" 

Oh well.   I prefer not to get wrapped up in denominational holidays anyway.  It's easier to just say, "Merry, (as good an excuse to get drunk as any) day."

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Fuck that.

Merry Christmas and happy Hannukah.

I concur. I'm sick of all this PC bullshit.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Me three!  If it's Christmas in your faith, you say Merry Christmas to everyone, if you're Jewish you say Happy Hannukah to everyone, if you're Moslem you say whatever the Moslems say at this time of year and if you're an atheist you say... we'' I've no idea - but anyway you say it.  I don't see why anyone needs to get offended by the fact that different people have different customs.  Diversity is a GOOD thing.

So Merry Christmas everyone!

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Atheists tend to use "happy holidays" unless they're the militant type. So you think they should have put however many slogans anybody in the ECA might use on the card? That could get abit cluttered. Happy Holidays gets the point across with minimal objection from everybody but the LCDs.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Nice pic!

*tries to find Dennis in the pic*

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

That's what I think it is, but I only saw his picture only once.

Re: Happy Holidays from the ECA!

Are you sure? If that is him, they are using a different photo from his profile photo on the team ECA page. Everyone else is a cut out of their profile photo.

It's hard to tell with the low resolution of the displayed graphic.

E. Zachary KnightXKCD is really fun this morning. http://xkcd.com/04/01/2015 - 7:37am
E. Zachary KnightI managed to wrangle a refund out of Sony for the broken texture pack. But for actual issues with texture packs, they referred me to Mojang. When I asked mojang about it, they referred me to Sony.04/01/2015 - 7:16am
Andrew EisenHuh?04/01/2015 - 2:42am
Matthew Wilson@AE I think the first dragon age did it the best. the person you played was treated differently based class,race, and gender. if the npc are going to act like 2015, you should just set the game in 2015 and add magic and dragons.04/01/2015 - 1:23am
E. Zachary KnightYeah, the PS3. My son paid for the Steampunk Texture Pack and it would not work at all. No matter what I did, it wouldn't allow us to save.03/31/2015 - 10:56pm
Sora-ChanConsole version?03/31/2015 - 10:40pm
E. Zachary KnightSo, Mojang has been selling a broken texture pack for Minecraft since at least Dec. 2014 and it hasn't been fixed yet.03/31/2015 - 10:30pm
Andrew EisenI think TT Games gets away with multiple LEGO games a year because they're all based on different franchises. If there were two or three LEGO Star Wars games every year, I think people would feel the same fatigue as they do with Assassin's Creed.03/31/2015 - 6:40pm
Andrew EisenIn other words, a hero is male because that's the default. A hero is female because of a gender-related reason. So, male heroes are for everyone. Female heroes are for women.03/31/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenHer point is that "When archetypal fantasy heroes in games are overwhelmingly portrayed as men, it reinforces the idea that... women should be able to empathize with male characters but that men needn’t be able to identify with women’s stories."03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenDaniel - She doesn't say that in any of the TvW videos and I doubt she's said elsewhere that all games with male protagonists are male power fantasies. Anyway, you seem to be conflating two different ideas.03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://twitter.com/Yuriofwind/status/583028257890635776 Oh snap!03/31/2015 - 5:14pm
WymorenceFor me it just boils down to the fact that, even at a giant company, when a game comes out annually it just gives it a vibe of being rushed out the door. And god knows Unity sucked some major lemur with all its bugs...03/31/2015 - 4:22pm
PHX CorpI launched my spotify account today, and I kinda went a little overboard with adding music03/31/2015 - 3:59pm
Sora-ChanCon't. Games like AC are a pain to someone like me who likes to play games in order. So when a game gets too many releases too quickly, it puts me off. Only exceptions are games that have no interconnected underlying stories like the FF games.03/31/2015 - 2:53pm
Sora-ChanWikipedia has rarely let me down on matters like this. But yeah... AC needs a break.. like two.. or three... or eight years.03/31/2015 - 2:51pm
ConsterThere's 9 already?! I think I played 1, 2, and the ones inbetween 2 and 3.03/31/2015 - 2:23pm
Sora-ChanCon't There are now Nine... of just the main entries into the series. There are 13 more in the "other games" department.03/31/2015 - 2:15pm
Sora-ChanI tried to get into AC. Was having a decent time with the first one, at which point they had already released three titles. Then a fourth came out... then a fifth... the wall kept growing before I could finish the first.03/31/2015 - 2:14pm
