Even I'M Getting Sick of Him


You've successfully engineered a brand-new baseball game to be released on the Playstation 3 and X-Box systems later this month. You've only got so much coin left to sign a famous Major Leaguer to serve as primary endorser and cover boy. In fact, your minimal marketing budget forces you to recruit a member of…my Oakland A's.

Who'll help you move the most units?

(a) Eric Chavez
(b) Matt Holliday
(c) Jason Giambi
(d) This Guy

to be fair, if the game's focus is on the management side, having the general manager on the cover rather makes sense.

Agreed, but my point was more about Beane's ability to consistently market himself better than his own team.

How long before HE gets his own bobblehead giveaway day? (And before Eric Patterson?!)

FYI, first impression from Octopus Overlords is not good.

OO is pretty good site for PC games, its "cousin" site, Gaming Trend is probably the better one for console, though, if you ever want to look up thoughts or reviews on games.
