Call to Action: Entertainment Weekly -- Decade's Best Game
« on: December 01, 2012, 06:12:26 pm »
Friday, December 7th is SpikeTV's Video Game Awards, Hosted by Samuel L. Jackson (yes, that one).  As part of it, Entertainment Weekly has set up a poll of 10 games to choose from  (http://ew.com/vga).  Unfortunately, it is only their 10 hand-picked games.  BUT, if you look a little closer, the author of the poll and the Entertainment Weekly article is Darren Franich, and he kindly left his twitter handle:  @DarrenFranich
 
My proposal is two fold:
1.  Go to http://ew.com/vga, but do not vote for one of their titles.  Instead, add a comment:  "Best Game of the Decade: City of Heroes #SaveCoH"
2.  Go to Twitter and tweet to @DarrenFranich :  "Best Game of the Decade: City of Heroes #SaveCoH".
 
We got 21, 845 signatures to a Save CoH petition, even a fraction of that can raise eyebrows, especially on a very visble site like Entertainment weekly.
Edit:  2 requests -- leave the message short and sweet as these are reporters....they'll investigate.  Also, only post/tweet once -- unique messages are what count here.

Had a computer hiccup.  Meant to add....  He is getting the message.  Don't stop now!  Guy has 4000+ followers and works at a leading industry magazine.  Every time he mentions CoH is good for us.  I mean, don't call him names or annoy him, but keep us in his mind.  Now if we just had Samuel Jackson's twitter feed and could convince him to mention CoH on air.

I'm not expecting a surprise reveal that CoH wins -- just visibility, and that's fine by me.  Drown him in CoH <3

As stated by Jackson himself on Jimmy Fallon as well as stated on his official website @SamuelLJackson is his official Twitter name. Just thought I'd throw that out there for you guys.
