The perils of the Hype Train…

The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Suck It, Tom Hanks!

I can't take credit for that hilariously bad/excellent pun of a front page description that lured you here—that was courtesy of our very own Kevin Schaller. By now you know my love for puns, so I couldn't let a reply to an email thread like that go unseen.

That particular email thread went around last night between the staff here at GameRevolution, because we just heard the news that GameRevolution's 'The Grind' webseries took home the award for Best Original Scripted Video Show/Series at the 2012 Digiday Video Awards Gala in New York City.

You may be wondering why all of the hate on Tom Hanks...we truly love and respect Tom Hanks and his work throughout the years. Which is why this accomplishment of winning this award is all the more satisfying. The Grind went up against the Tom Hanks-created, Tom Hanks-produced Electric City, a post-apocalyptic science fiction webseries [When have you not heard of those before? ~Ed. Nick] with characters voiced by Hollywood talent such as Paul Scheer, Ginnifer Goodwin, Chris Parnell, and surprise-surprise, Tom Hanks.

So while we wish Mr. Hanks no ill will, we can't help but be sore winners and do as much virtual face-rubbing as possible.

If you haven't seen The Grind, make sure you check out the entire series at: http://www.gamerevolution.com/tag/the-grind

Congratulations to the good folks here at GameRevolution, Evolve Media Corp., our host Marisha Ray, the writers, and the production crews at Brilliant Morgan Entertainment. (And I would like to thank Belgium for not interfering with our award.)
