In what can only be described as one of the worst video game tie-ins ever invented, Treyarch announced this week that there will be a special edition Jeep Wrangler made especially to coincide with the release of the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops.
So far, from the initial reports coming in, it looks like it’s merely a black Jeep Wrangler with some spiffy tires/wheels, and a few stickers on the fenders. However, thanks to the power of the Internet, we now know more than we ever cared to about this idiotic tie-in.
I can only wonder who Jeep and Activision have been talking to about all of the merchandising that this game is bringing about…I have one guess.
I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
