It’s been rumored for a while that Amazon was hankerin’ to dip its toes into the console waters. And why wouldn’t it? Every prominent corporation these days seems to want to dominated moar markets always! Or perhaps in an ideal world all markets alwayz! So Amazon buying an gaming studio? Smacks of a logical progression for the CorpoGiant.
Yet another hope and dream of Amazon’s for butting into the original television content market has been revealed. This dream is taking the form of Winding Refn’s Barbarella remake. Not exactly the next House of Cards, but hey — I didn’t expect much from that fucking series either. So yeah.
Amazon dun good this holiday season. Like, way good. I thought I was crushing it sell my crusty socks-turned-Jennifer Lawrence puppets. Sold three! One to Rendar, one to my fiance, one to my Mom. And Rendar didn’t even cry as I got my money from him at spork point, unlike the other two.
But man, Amazon did way better than me.
Man. Nothing like getting paid on a Thursday and wanting to ransack Amazon for some neat things I don’t need. Only problem? Even with my Prime account that shit isn’t coming until Monday. (Unless you want to pay for one-day but fuck you.) This won’t hold! My American upbringing demands everything right now. Good Guy Amazon? Soon they’ll have my back.
Rad ass. Sort of. Amazon is going to begin offering a digital copy of physical books that you snag. For a teeny fee. Frankly, I’m there. Maybe it’s bullshit or whatever that they’re going to charge the extra dough, but I’m a sucker. For far too long I’ve groused that I couldn’t lend a friend a hard copy of a book that I snagged for my Kindle. Or add it to my physical library, as a monument to my literary materialism.
Errbuddy looking to get into that delicious gaming…game? If reports are to believed, Amazon is on their grind. Developing an Android console. Why not? I mean, it isn’t like we are saturated beyond belief in the gaming market. Does this interest your beautiful asses at all?
Amazon is going to begin publishing fanfiction through Kindle Worlds, which is an offshoot of their self-publishing arm. I don’t write fanfiction, though I do appreciate both its authors and the idea of it. So I don’t know if I’m the best one to weigh in on this shit, so I will stae that I like the idea of these talented folk being recognized. Or not recognized. You know, based on the quality of their work.
Oh god damn you, Amazon. Don’t you realize that we hate virtual currencies? Let us pay Imperial credits for objects. That is all we want. We don’t want coins, bucks, Microsoft points, or any of that shit. In short, fuck you.
Showrooming is a glorious epidemic. Walk into a store. Check out the device or gadget you want. Then you go home and order it online. Target is trying to strike back against this movement in a rather favorable manner. They’re going to match Amazon’s prices all damn year long.
DC has been on their grind trying to get Wonder Woman onto some sort of fucking screen for a while. They axed the Joss Whedon pitch for a flick. Like true dumb asses. Then they filmed an asstacular TV pilot. Their latest approach is a series in the vein of Smallville. I suppose we’ll see.
