DAILY MANIFESTO

GodofallEnds: Vox Pop April 2013 Winner

Posted on Wednesday, April 10 @ 18:59:24 Eastern by

We're changing the date scheme for Vox Pop to be for the current month. Seems silly to make this post seem older than it is. Just making sure you know that we're still covering last month's Vox Pop entries.

If there's any theme brought to us by our four Vox Pop authors below, it's about how to cope with change. Our winner GodofallEnds gives some advice on how to handle the hype train coming with the next slew of consoles, particularly not being a fanboy cheering on only one side of the fence, being nice online, and ignoring inflammatory speculators.

Meanwhile, shandog18 wants Microsoft and Sony not to forget about backwards compatibility for online communities and LinksOcarina makes point about the lack of female protagonists in games and why they shouldn't be abandoned merely because of marketing strategies. And hopefully, if EA learns from Fieperskaivu, they won't require always-online for games that aren't always online...
