To win back their core gamers, they fixated on changing their tone and taking charge of their message. The focused platform to do so on was the new Xbox platform, Xbox Wire, which launched in May 2013. The PR department used Xbox Wire to inform the publics on the reversal of the two controversial product policies. To add on, new content was published daily. Between the E3 convention in June and the Xbox One launch in November, over 300 posts were generated.
Indeed, crossovers occurred prior to this game, but they were first party crossovers (SNK’s King of Fighters and Sega’s Fighter’s Megamix), single guest character (Gon in Tekken 3 or Earthworm Jim in Battle Arena Toshinden), or the license was owned all by one company (Jump Manga games). As a result, Marvel vs Capcom shook the world as being the 1st of its kind, where two different companies agreed to duke it out. Not only that, but the gameplay is highly influential as well, being released at a time some would personally consider the 2D Fighting Game Renaissance along the likes of Street Fighter III, Garou, and Martial
Pixar was firm in the fact that they wanted to keep control over their stories, characters and associated film assets. Steve Jobs, chair and majority stakeholder of Pixar at the time, was the lead to try to make this deal run smoothly. At the time Jobs and the CEO of Disney, Michael Eisner were at odds, which made this already a challenging situation. Eisner wanted Pixar to go find other distributors to work with, but Eisner was ultimately dismissed from Disney (Ngu, 2017). Eisner was replaced by Bob Iger in 2005, and this was good news for Pixar.

It is a company that will continue to prosper, and will not go away when Lucas is no longer apart of the industry. Without it films such as Star Wars, Indian Jones, and Jurassic Park would not exist. There is no telling what the movie industry would be like if Lucas had never gotten into a horrific car accident as a teenager and decided to race cars instead of making movies. It is funny how God’s plan works through even the hard times in our
One such creator is Hideo Koijima, a Japanese video game director who worked at Konami mostly known for Contra, Castle Vania, and the series that Koijima made Metal Gear Solid. He influenced me by being a good example of going against the mold and making what would become an international success. One of his first projects is what would lead to the original series of metal gear. When it was a standard to make a 2-D side scrolling action shooter he had to work with the NES and the Famicons limitations at the time and made an overhead stealth game. It would not be till the PlayStation that Metal Gear Solid would reach critical acclaim and would cross over with household names like Mario and

While William Higinbotham would be credited as the first to design and implement video game, Steve Russell would be the first to create a game that would inspire the multibillion-dollar video games industry. And because of these two great and brilliant people we wouldn 't enjoy Tetris, Minecraft or any other popular video games because they all started the very concept of video games. Playing video games enhances decision-making and develops problem-solving skills. The more we play a video game that resolves a certain difficult situation and the objective that we want to reach is through the enemies that we

When I was a young boy, I wanted to be like James Bond. Now that may sound a little crazy, but I couldn 't have been the only young boy with aspirations to one day become a top secret agent. Unfortunately, back in 1997, I didn 't know a licence to kill was just a novelist invention, or that my chances of being needed for MI6 field operations were slim to none. Nevertheless, all hope wasn 't lost, as I could at least pretend I was a spy thanks to GoldenEye oo7 on the N64, courtesy of developer Rare, and publisher Nintendo. It wasn 't long after I popped the cartridge into my N64 for the first time, and flicked the power on that I realised just how special GoldenEye was.
