Morning Hangover #57: Raymond Wonders About Twitter Gaming And Patrick Is Turning Japanese


Posted September 18, 2009 - By r_pad

Welcome to "Morning Hangover" -- an excellent way to start your day with the crew at TheFeed...no matter what you're recovering from. Every morning you'll hear musings from two of TheFeed's editors and have the chance to share your thoughts on what's going on in the gaming world. So buckle up, break the Internets, and keep reading!

Raymond Padilla: Yesterday, I wrote about Uncharted 2's use of Twitter. I'm a bit torn on the matter. I love games (duh!) and I'm an avid Twitter user...however, I don't want these worlds colliding -- not yet anyway. Uncharted 2's use of Twitter seems clever from a marketing standpoint, but as a user, I don't find it appealing. I don't want to know that one friend earned a trophy or another cleared a level. I'm sure someone will come up with a slick way to implement Twitter into a game, but I'm not sure what that entails. Anyone have any cool ideas on how Twitter can make traditional console gaming more fun?

Patrick Klepek: I'm in big trouble. I just tried looking at the area surrounding our hotel for Tokyo Game Show and quickly realized getting around Japan is going to be way more confusing than getting around during my last international trip in Germany. What are all these symbols!? They scare my curly hair. Are there any iPhone apps I can download to make getting around a little easier? Any websites I should print out ahead of time? I'll only be able to access the Internet when I'm near a Wi-Fi spot, though. I haven't done any real traveling since acquiring an iPhone, so I might as well try and make use of it!
