I'm starting to lean towards the idea that Matulef is a character, a parody of games article writers. The frequent mistakes, first-person writing, some copy-pasted articles that are basically the game blurbs, advice to fund Kickstarters when he has no idea if they're any good so can't possibly be in a position to recommend them, and the repeated use of the word "whopping" for any number larger than one or any discount above 50% (three times in one article!). It makes much easier reading if you go in thinking that it's all intentional.|
"I'm particular fond of the golden era noirish logo for Star Wars: Scum and Villainy, while you just know that Star Wars: Dark Jedi would have been that series' Shadow of Hedgehog."
WTF is Shadow of Hedgehog?!
"Curiously, Disney has recently registered 40 domains for a new Star Wars project that isn't on this list, entitled Star Wars: Attack Squadrons"
Why is that curious? That list was made in 2008 and there's no telling how long ago the projects were cancelled before that!
"Listed under LucasFilm, these consist of StarWarsAttackSquadrons.com, SwAttackSquadrons.net, and SwAttackSquadrons.org. We don't know if Star Wars: Attack Squadrons is even a game, as it could very well be a show, movie, theme park ride, or breakfast cereal, but suspiciously EA has owned the domain to the similarly titled Attack Squadron since 2000. It won't expire until March either."
All of those domains will expire in March?! And that was three domains, not forty.
Oh, Jesus... that was just one article.
OK, put me on the list of robots that enjoy Matulef articles, for I am an Appreciaton.
