  1. Blitz: the League may have gotten a little press - but is it selling? I don’t know anyone who’s played it and I don’t hear anything about “charts” when it’s mentioned.

    I only target that because you’ve brought it up in a few posts, and a response to one of my comments as though this game has had any impact on anything other than a few promotional pieces - but it doesn’t seem like it has.

    Midway itself doesn’t seem to be doing all that great. Hype is sometimes just hype.

  2. You’re referring to this “buzzworthiness” mention of mine, which was written very much tongue-in-cheek (if it’s at all significant to write vs. say something with tongue implanted within cheek).

    I don’t mean to make more out of Blitz than what it is: Equal parts marketing stunt and videogame. It came to mind in this post just in terms of the NFL’s recent overall marketing movements — not that these two instances are necessarily linked.

    You might be pointing something out, though: I could be inadvertently providing the game more hype than it deserves. Plus, looking at it objectively, it even hints at a viral ad product placement on my part (which I’m not doing, promise).

    I dunno… for some reason, it’s burrowed itself into my brain for the moment. I think it’s mostly because of the way it came into being, as an unintended consequence.
