Here I was, enjoying some relaxation post Chocobo Flu because honestly there wasn’t much news. Yeah there was a story here or there but nothing major and certainly not enough in one day to warrant a wrap-up. But here comes Monday trying to fudge up a good thing I have going here. Now what? I’m expected to actually do work? Fine, whatever, here is today’s news.
CLUB NINTENDO GOING OUT WITH A BANG
A few Wrap-Ups ago I talked about the closure of Club Nintendo. The rewards program had its ups and downs but it was pretty good for what it was. Now… on its deathbed… Club Nintendo is AWESOME! As a final goodbye, Nintendo has released its final list of rewards. Along with a bunch of limited edition dollar store garbage (a cartridge case? seriously), Nintendo has added over 100 downloadable games to its rewards. You can find the entire list at the link below, but there are some real winners. Now the deep anxiety and fear of buyers remorse awaits me as I decide how to spend my precious coins!

IT’S A NEW “DAY” FOR SONY ONLINE ENTERTAINMENT
Sony’s MMO focused game development studio Sony Online Entertainment has been sold off to investment firm Columbus Nova. The studio will now be an independent studio under the name Daybreak Game Company, LLC. The most exciting aspect of this news is the possibility of Daybreak’s games coming to other platforms. More games on more platforms is always a good thing. (Especially when I don’t own a viable platform that their games are currently on.)
PETE CARROLL EITHER LOVES EA OR OWES SOMEONE THERE MONEY
Seriously, this is the only possible explanation for that play calling! It appears that Madden 15 predicted the exact final score of Super Bowl 49, even going as far as predicting a comeback by the Patriots after being down 14-24. Since everyone has their conspiracy theories for why the final Seahawks play was called, here is mine. Actually just read the headline… that’s pretty much my entire theory!
