Pach-Attack! And Other Awesome Links of the Day

Everyone’s favorite (or not) neighborhood friendly analyst Michael Pachter is getting the spotlight in a new video segment on GameTrailers called Pach-Attack!

And indeed that is what you will get in these short bits staring the Wedbush Morgan Securities forecaster; who has also guest stared in other GameTrailers’ programs like the Bonus Round.

So if you are like me, and enjoy Pachter’s insightful and funny outlook on the game’s industry, check out the first episode below where he lists his biggest winners and losers of 2009. And if you’re one of those people who don’t… well there’s a NeoGaf forum thread for you somewhere to vent your nerdy disgust.

In other video game related awesome links of the day: an airport in Hong Kong have partnered up with Sony to install PlayStation 3 kiosks, Microsoft of Japan is launching a bunch of new commercials, and a Bitmob contributer argues for the use of Quick Time Events (which will make someone here angry and comment below.)

Plus you can also check out the discussion of the challenge of blending both game play and narrative with Rainbow Studios senior game designer Ara Shirinian on Gamasutra, and lastly, coming to Japanese theaters later this year (and a DVD rack at a Best Buy near you) is a live action movie based on Capcom’s Dead Rising series.

While this might not be Burger King, these awesome links are still flamed broiled hot – hot – hot!
