While You Were Sleeping

While you were sleeping, forming cat walls and being a general nuisance in ChatChat, the world of video games moved on without you. To bring you up to speed, here's a round-up of the highlights of the night!

The Electronic Software Association (ESA) is a lobbying group funded by the biggest publishers in the world. Want to know what they spent their money lobbying? More specifically, want to know what they spent a whole $1 million lobbying? We've got the details right here.

Facebook currently makes 12% of its money from Zynga. This is pretty huge. While many people may have the "Who gives a darn about Zynga?" attitude, the important thing here is that they're a game development company and one of the world's largest social networking companies is currently making a pretty decent living off their work. What would happen if Facebook collapsed? Oh man, think about that!

In the quirky department, this is a massive collection of Mega Man games, to my dismay there is more Hyperdimension Neptunia in existence, and here's why the Resident Evil 6 demo has staggered release dates.

    Its a bad sign when I'm up and browsing before this post has gone up.

    Cat wall is best wall.

    HAhaha look at that, im famous! Even if i am a dog in that pic.

      cats > dogs.

        Heathen!

          (I am only saying that because I spend so much time as a component in a dog wall instead of a cat wall that I must like dogs better. The internet game said so, so it must be true.)
