Why the fuck would you even preorder Call of Duty in the firstplace....
The idea doesn't seem to have been Microsoft's, but one pitched to them by Collateral Damage Studios. There were several more designs which weren't used, but can be found on their facebook page.
And a good mascot doesn't make the product itself any better, I'm afraid....
I've had.... two tweets about it, both very neutral aside from the "haha"-comment, and a friend linked me to the news last night. Not using Facebook or Tumblr seems to pay off nicely.
Microsoft has a new mascot for their Internet Explorer. Seems like the more recent Madobe Nanami promotions for Windows went well for them.
The new IE-tan, dubbed Inori Aizawa / 藍澤 祈, was designed by Collateral Damage Studios, and has also spawned a short anime clip, with more depending on feedback. You can watch the clip here - those idiots disabled embedding.
Now, there is a Facebook page for Inori, found at InternetExplorerTan, with some in-character profile:
....she's totally bullshitting about her likes and confidence, I feel.
Yeah, completely bullshitting. Most popular =/= most used - especially when it comes preinstalled...
Anyway, there'll be a special Inori-version / theme pack of the IE soon, it appears. The current internetexplorertan.com/home/ page redirects to this little gif:
when it should look more like this:
All the bullshitting aside, Collateral Damage Studios did a fine job with her design:
Let's see where Microsoft goes from here...
You must have missed the myriad instances where "oldfags" returned to the site for an easy ego boost....
From all I've seen of @NidTheBard, he's got nothing to fear on CL. Clever, knows how to interact with people on chat and have an actual conversation, posts on the forum and contribute to topics in positive ways. Also managed to get an avatar without bothering people endlessly.
Hey, we've got PLENTY of "oldfags" who should take Nid here as an example! The kind of user we could use more of.
The button seems to be misaligned, slightly to the right of the bar. Something else @Gargron might have an easy fix for.
Another new arrival!
I laughed when it popped up under new releases.
Steam really needs a tab for "new on Steam" vs "new releases". They also date A LOT of old games with their steam release dates on the storepages, rather than the original release date, like they do with most other games, if they decide to do their job properly.
I tell ya, Steam and Black Library, those online stores are gonna be the death of me.
