GRIMACE MILKSHAKE’S VIDEO GAME NEWS AND REVIEWS
Sunday August 8, 2010
HELP! I think I’m suffering from a Pach-Attack!
I remember first hearing about Michael back in 2008 in one of EGM’s (then) final issues. (FYI: EGM is back on the newsstands and on the internet at! I suggest you check out what is arguably one of the finest video game magazines of all time!)
Anyway, Pachter is an employee at Wedbush Morgan Securities in Los Angeles, California. His job is to manage activity in the electronics entertainment industry and predict how their stocks will move. He also predicts what a big companies such as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, etc.– will do to turn more profits within a year. Check out the Pach-Attack on a weekly basis. You’ll find that this ex-lawyer turned securities monitor is also one of the biggest video game nerds out there. He isn’t the best player but he is the best at predicting trends that may be happening in the near future.
So MANY bad games to talk shit about!!
The Angry Video Game Nerd was the first person to introduce me to GameTrailers.com– as his website features his self-titled series. He only makes one video a month but they’re at least fifteen-minutes long now. Check out his new episode about Zelda II… And when you get the chance visit him at w for the archive of his past videos.
I owe Insideman for introducing me to The Guild via the Do You Wanna Date My Avatar? video. So, I must do him a favor in return by posting Game On a Bollywood-inspired music video featuring our favorite sociopathic misanthropes.
BTW, Amy Okuda shakes that ass like a pro:
TAX… MY ASS!
Seriously, government. You want to tax video games? Are you going to tax my ass the next time I need to use the toilet? Politicians need to take significant pay cuts (66% will do) before they even think about taxing entertainment like video games. Taxes . . . pffft. Come back when you learn how to balance the budget without taxing our favorite video game developers out of business.
‘Til Next Week!
