What You Want and What You Need In a Game Industry?

Two large stores new Star Wars  replenished merchandise displays. Does anyone know what this film will be about?

I wanted to try to explain this in the easiest way I could. In some sense, there always has to be a balance. I tried to think of the comparison to my subject, but the ease of it was not very simple. I look at Zoe Saldana, compare her performances in two of the biggest films in history, and see their differences. Misses Saldana, I believe, in Guardians of the Galaxy is a much better and more unique character, in the film mentioned, than her performance in Star Trek. I have always believed in some sense, ever since Star Trek, circa 2009, the movie series allows the previous actors to wear their parts.

I mean they try on their acting job; the actors fit it, walk around in it, and eventually become those parts. In that sense, Misses Saldana, if Guardians stays true to its personality, will have more success in that series. Guardians has much more personality than Star Trek, 2009, in my opinion.

In this current game industry there seems to be a straddle between a console concept based on power and with games that are a massive third-party hit, and a console concept that lives and dies on the personality of industry legends. This war gives the customer some of what they want in entertainment in one area, but then a lack of something else.

In this case, one console only carries first-party content while the other two consoles only carry the largest third-party games available. In all, I believe, in every console concept, Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft have ****** up the balance in the game industry.

Nintendo’s console, the Nintendo Wii U, carries a small share of the game industry. The console’s first-party content and innovation is unmatched. Third-party content, specifically, whether it is hit or miss, is scarce. Some of it is because of the console’s lack of power, others, I believe, are because of Nintendo’s past work with third-party companies, and others, I believe, are because of the supply and demand of game content today.

Microsoft and Sony have invested in the same console concept. Create a powerful system. Other companies invest in this system and create massive games to push the edges of their technology. These consoles however have no well to remember first-party content. There are the Halos, and Sony has some content.

This is a problem. In some sense, legends create content, which can be new and help to create a new mindset within the industry. Though, a complete lack of acknowledgment of third-party purpose, with an understanding of what makes money in this industry can be deficient. The same goes for Sony and Microsoft. Only publishing third-party content makes money now, but if there is no true purpose other than to support a company’s principle, it is possible to one day create another video game depression.

The industry needs to find some balance. I am not sure if Nintendo needs to combine with Apple, or Microsoft or Sony need to leave the video game industry, or one of those large companies have to merge with Sega, or some other legend of the industry, but whatever needs to happen must happen soon. There are only so many generations where you can handle different consoles in the same way you handle different remotes for an entertainment area in your home.

To think, this all started when looking at the toy isles, at two different stores, with the new Star Wars, Episode 7, merchandise. It is Star Wars, but if you really think about it, no one knows the movie’s actual subject. The products sell because it is Star Wars. The concepts look the same.

This film’s actual story and purpose of the characters are unknown. In that sense, the success of the film rides on the skill of JJ Abrams, and his crew, and Star War’s past. It seems like in the past, the film introduced a new look and different content, in 1977, to theaters. After that, the merchandise brought people to the store to enjoy it and remember the film. How times have changed. In both stores, I know I hoped the film creates a balance between its marketing, merchandise, and film story.

DWARF COMPLETE IS HERE and is 2.50!

A while back, I had written some stories about a being known in mythology to have been an artisan, smith, miner, and warrior, only, in most text. Though many tales exist about the Dwarf, for me, it was important to put a different spin on the character. You can always place the Dwarf in a dark time, or fantastic place to coexist in a purposeful adventure. In my case, I wish to use this character, as the main character, to set an example of the eternal order that must exist between good and evil, under different circumstances.

You could always put a Dwarf, the stager, on a quest, and in a battle with a vile dragon for his lost gold. It is possible to put, a rogue Dwarf against his own family lineage as he clashes to create his own dominant line. Dwarf Complete looks to set a different standard.

Dwarf Complete is in an alternate universe, starting in 2010. It follows his character, over a three-year period. Thirty-year-old Lawrence Dodgea gangland version of Robin Hood battles a corrupted, ever-changing existence.

His top place, as leader of a special gang, and lust for violence, gets him a special audience with the newest weapon from a special, new, law enforcement group, the Cavaliers. Lawrence’s first encounter with the diabolical machine snatches, and changes, his life, literally. He becomes the weapon, a realized legend, a Dwarf that fights evil, and can only battle this evil to an epic and monstrous conclusion

.

The question, in all of this, is can you accept the ending? The character Lawrence follows a path he should and enters situations that make his life beyond torturous. In the end, he makes a choice, and follows it to a major finale, but is it fair?
You can order Dwarf Complete, now for just 2.50, unless you have Kindle unlimited or use the other incentives,  at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B010THPA1M/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_YkkMvb1SCC8.  I cannot forget to acknowledge one of my inspirations, at Dark Chapter Press, at http://www.darkchapterpress.com/, for more great written content.
