The founder of EA games, Trip Hawkins, has just recently funded a new game firm, If You Can, a game developing company that is based in London, UK. The new company has employed Ben Geliher, the former lead producer at Mind Candy on Moshi Monsters and he has annouced that one of the first games the company is working on is a project which is a "Monster catching style of RPG" that apparently will rival Nintendo's Pokémon Series!.

Geliher has stated that "The game will be a top down RPG for kids, so very stylized in its look and feel. Think Pokémon, Animal Crossing or The Legend of Zelda for an idea of what would be expected."

Some parents are just cruel. I'm calling my first son Bruticus. Predaking for a girl.

You think that's bad? I had a professor who had the same first name as his last name. Now what the hell were his parents thinking...?

If the dumb bastard can address two of my biggest issues with Pokemon, I'll be stoked. Those being:

1) The premise of "Gotta Catch Em All" is cool as hell, but you actually have to make it reasonably accessible for EVERYONE to catch them all if they wish to. No more of this BS with stuff being locked on the game cart until you go to some event or buy another game or some other such nonsense.

2) There needs to be a limited number of monsters, because Pokemon is extremely watered down now that there are like 800 monsters. Give me 100-200 GOOD monsters, and get rid of all the BS fodder crap monsters that are good for next to nothing.

I sometimes feel as though life is a curse that has been placed on the living. I envy the unborn at times.

Just read a Jack Reacher book and one character had the same name for his first, middle and surname. I thought that was pretty unbelievable until now.

I once dated a chick with the same name as my surname though. Different spelling but pronounced the same.

Lol. I doubt anyone in charge at EA plays games. If it isn't insanely popular then they haven't heard of it.

When you need to hype your game by referencing popular games to compare it to, you KNOW it's gonna be s*** tier.
