EGM en espaƱol.

May 8, 2010

I had the request of uploading some pics of what was the latin american version of EGM. To be more especific, the mexican version, which goes without saying that ceased to be published around the same time the american version died. But while the original EGM revived the other one is still dead, and it’s not exactly a big loss per se. While most of the magazine was just translated material from the original source there was a mexican staff writting their own material for it, once more, nothin of value was lost. Trust me on this one.

So, here are the pics, this being from the issue of october 2007, featuring a preview of Silent Hill: Homecoming, among other things.

Completely pointless section devoted to show photos of some south american model. Fanservice in other words.

Halo 3 media saturation was alive and well in those days.

HEY GUYZ LETZ MAKE A LIST OF THE BEST CONSOLES EVER…BY INCLUDING CONSOLES FROM THE CURRENT GENERATION, EVEN THAT THEY ARE LIKE BARELY 2 YEARS IN THE MARKET, WHO’S WITH ME?

Pics from both the mexican and usa reviewers.

The magazine used to feature posters, but after a while they stopped doing that, and i stopped buying them.

Feliz cinco de mayo!

I hope you are ready to party hard gringos, because we are.

Edit note: Fox is hunting down all the trailers in youtube it seems. Maybe they want to kill the movie just like they did with Idiocracy. So here goes another mirror, you can’t stop machete gringos!

Mexican “journalists” crying about twitter.

May 1, 2010

Context: All the people you see in the video, with maybe the exception of one, are “journalists” working for grupo televisa, the biggest most power-hungry television monopoly in latin america. Having even their very own tailor-made law that allows them to control the national airwaves at will, heavily restricting the access to any other company trying to open a tv channel on mexican television.

Anyway, on twitter a rumor started to spread that Joaquin Lopez Doriga (super old guy in the video with glasses) was being fired from televisa, this was obviously not true. Well, this trivial and harmless rumor got televisa and their goons up in arms. They don’t like seeing themselves being criticized on the internet, and they would just looooove to be able to control this in some way shape or form. Obviously this is pure whishfull thinking, and unless Mexico becomes another China or North Korea this is just never going to happen. In this video Lopez Doriga and friends cry about “perverse people” controlling the internet, and how the goverment needs to get involved somehow and control this “madness”. Translation ahead:

“Lopez Doriga: The challenge is recovering spaces from crime, not just a challenge for the goverment, but for society too. It’s more effective the action of the people here than from the goverment. Recovering the cyber-space, which seems to be in hands of the organized crime, and perverse people. All this noting the importance of the instrument, and how it works when it has to work. This doesn’t mean that everything in the web is good or bad, there just happens to be a lot of garbage..

Other guy: So, the goverment needs to have a presence…

Other guy: The goverments!

Some woman: IN THE VERY SAME (SOCIAL) WEBS”
