Dr. E to Change His Name to Dr. EA @ The 2009 Comic-Con! Electronic Arts Finds Great Inspiration and Exalting Direction in Dr. EA's (formerly Dr. E) 2005-08 words/patents/blogs!

DR.E IS NOW DR. EA! CONSEQUENCES OF MORAL CHOICES! DANTE'S INFERNO! EPIC STORY! HISTORICAL EVENTS! EMOTION! GREAT LITERATURE! Electronic Arts finds great inspiration and exalting direction in Dr. EA's(formerly Dr. E) /2005-08 words/res./patents/blogs!

DR. E IS NOW DR. EA!  CONSEQUENCES OF MORAL CHOICES!  DANTE'S INFERNO!  EPIC STORY! HISTORICAL EVENTS! EMOTION! GREAT LITERATURE! THE GREAT BOOKS RENAISSANCE!

It looks like someone at EA has internet access!  For they have been reading Gamasutra/ Gamedev.net/ Neogaf/ Something Awful/ BrokenToys/ Eegra/ TeamXbox/ their email/ dantesinfernogame.com (2005)/ greatbooksgames.com (2005)/ the US patent database (2005-2008)/ twitter/ the internet / and did I say Gamedev.net? Yes, somebody at EA has been reading  http://libertariangames.blogspot.com  , http://gold45revolver.com (October Suprise!), http://gamestorytelling.com , http://artsentrepreneurship.com (2005) , http://autumnrangers.com  (2004),  http://herosjourneyentrepreneurship.org (2007). Yes--while it might take them a couple years to get through my 2005/2006/2007/2008 "giant walls of text (as they train the fanboys/fanmbas to label epic literature)," someone at EA has at least read my 2005/2006/2007/2008 research/patent abstracts below, http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2007/0087798.html, http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2009/0017886.html .   Yes--they have been Reading One Last Continue: http://www.onelastcontinue.com/9136/vampire-zombie-communist-hookers-patent-it/ and Words on Play: http://wordsonplay.wordpress.com/2009/05/28/system-and-method-for-creating-exalted-video-games-and-virtual-realities-wherein-ideas-have-consequences/

Yes somebody has been surfing the net at EA on company time! Naughty naughty!  If everyone is surfing the net, instead of working 22 hour days, how will the storyless games with story, emotionless games with emotion, amoral games with morality, and dante's inferno without dante's inferno ever reach beta?????   http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/9.125556?page=2 (Note how when individuals come up with new ideas it is absurd, but when the corporate MBA announces the "new" idea months/years later in shiny power point presentations and official Harvard MBA press releases, it is seen as great and exalted widsom.  Fanboys are trained from an early by the corproate state to respond to superficial stimulus, to never question the master chief MBA/CEO, to hire and kill hookers, label the classics and epic poetry "giant walls of text" and worship the corporate state's mammary glands as it provides the withering soul its sustenance, as it kills their fathers in the fminist movement, keeping them in their single mom's basements, preventing them from going forth and finding their true fathers--Moses, Jefferson, Homer, Gandhi, Buddha, Emerson, Campbell, sun Tzu, Confucious, and Zeus.)

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." --Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 - 1860)

And the truth is this: "Tomorrow's franchises will be lead by novels--by the classical, epic ideals performed in the contemporary context, beginning with words expressing epic, exalted story--with novels written by rugged, singular authors.   Yes--it is coming on back.  Comic books are great and all, but they lack the epic depths of Dante's Inferno, Shakespeare's Hamlet, Moby Dick, and Autumn Rangers.  Why limit oneself to fleeting phantasms cobbled together by committees of fanboy MBAs yet exalting yesterday's amoral/hooker-killing technologies, when one can have depth, profundity, epic story, character, meaning, soul, and romance?  Why put the cart of spectacle in front of the horse of epic story?  For after all, in his Poetics, Aristotle placed story first and spectacle close to last." Why play the same old game (hyped with a new $69.95 skin), when you can have epic poetry exalting the soul's immortal moral premises?

Of course the fiatocracy's dumbed-down academies train the fanboys to scream "giant walls of text" when they see Aristotle's Poetics or the Constitution (by giving them A's), and to run back on home to their mom's basement to kill more unarmed women in metallic bras in Fallout 3/GTA/aging boomer-tech.  But one cannot stop an idea whose time has come, and the Great Books Gaming Renaissance shall be! For the fanboy revolution, engraved in destiny from the dawn of time, hath begun!  Soon the rising, epic demand to wield a Gold 45 Revolver which fires Zeus's lightning during the third-act's showdown, as long as one walked the straight and narrow throughout the game, will be realized!  Of course, due to the epic corporate/fiat arrogance, a few more classic literary works may first of all need to be crucified (in the original Beowulf he kills Grendel's mother--in the Hollywood remake he sleeps with her: in the original Dante's Inferno Beatrice is in Heaven/Paradisio--in EA's remake she is in hell), a few billion more in market cap may need to be lost by the fanboi MBAz, and the epic, poetic soul of a few million more families may need to be destroyed by the fiatocracy, along with a few thousand more jobs in the gaming industry.

But the thing about the soul--it is immortal, and it shall forever yearn for epic, exalted art and Moses' and Zeus's thundering justice and catharsis.  And fanboys all around the world are yearning to bring that immoral thunder on down in the third act--in deep, meaningful, and profound games wherein they can fight for classical ideals as did Leonidas; instead of chainsawing locust, after locust, after locust, after locust... after locust, taking a break and hiring and killing unarmed women, and then shooting more locusts, as the fanboys put the cart (mere spectacle) in front of the horse (epic story) in trying to create a frachise instead of exalted art.  Scorates reminds us that virtue and epic soul do not come from money/MBAs, but that wealth and money come from virtue and soul, and Aristotle stated that "story is the soul of a work."  Hence Ranger McCoy must reload APRIL with the moral operating system.

Yes--these words flow like water, right on through the cubicles and on by the fanboy MBA's stalwart prejudice against exalted romance, character, honor, Constitutional Law, and epic, enduring love.  The words fly under the radar and over heads, immune to BFGs and Chainsaw Lancers, right on up into the upper echelons of major gaming companies.  These exalted, eloquent, buzzord-free words bother them--the phrases seem strange and impolite at first, as if they never made it through business school but still want to hang out in the same room.  Make no mistake--the CEOs/Scottish Nobles/Sauron/Darth Vader do not like these words, and will never, never acknowledge them nor their source; but with all the shedding of market-cap and jobs, they've got to try something.  Even if it means reading the "large walls of text" the feminist MBAs were sent forth to deconstruct and destory to make way for the fiatocracy's supreme rule via dumbed-down fiat.

Dude! Check it out!  Dr. E's ideas, words, and phrases are totally pw3d1n9 EA's 2009 Comic Con presentations, as well as their entire corporate vision! 

http://www.monstersandcritics.com/gaming/news/article_1490917.php/Electronic_Arts_Comic-Con_schedule " CONSEQUENCES OF MORAL CHOICES!  DANTE'S INFERNO!  EPIC STORY! HISTORICAL EVENTS! EMOTION! GREAT LITERATURE! THE GREAT BOOKS RENAISSANCE!"  (See the 2005/2006/2007/2008 patent abstracts below for more!)

I am thinking of changing my name to Dr. EA as I head on down to San Diego!!! ALL YOUR GOLD 45 REVOLVER ARE BELONG TO US!!!(EA coined/trademarked the phrase "all your base are belong to usTM" in 2007, while staging a protest of fake aliens to publicize something or other)

Gold 45 Revolver

The ideas, words, and phrases from my two patent applications/blogs/articles/websites are rockin' Comic Con 2009!  This soooo rocks!!  I'm gonna give them some Gold 45 Revolver t-shirts, as in 2010 they'll be rockin' their Gold 45 Revolver technologies/games!  Wahoo!  And too, I am going to tell them a secret--epic story is not to be found in corporate hype, but it is to be found in the Great Books and Classics.  A new age has begun--an age of freedom--and rather than leaidng with committees of video game fanboy/manboy/MBAs, the industry will soon be lead by indie artsists, as sure as one man--Herman Melville penned Moby Dick--as sure as one man--Dante Aligheri--rocked the Divine Comedy, and not a committee of fanboy MBAs.  It is not enough to merely use the title Dante's Inferno to sell a God of War mod, nor hire fake Christians to protest it, but one must perform the classical ideals in the contemporary context, in the living art of one's own--art such as Autumn Rangers and the Beatrice Game Engine.

Dr. E's showdown!

Dr. E  taking on the corporate conglomerates as they eat his ideas?  Note all the fanboys sent forth to mock the ideas, while the massive corporation eats them & regurgitates them as GoW mods & the same old games with "epic story" and "deeper emotion" printed on the box. "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." --Arthur Schopenhauer, German philosopher (1788 - 1860)  And then the MBA/fanboy deconstructs it, repackages it, and sells it as "Art." (Note how Beatrice is in Heaven--where Dante put here, while EA is consigning her to hell.) 

For no great film/video games/comic books franchise has ever been lead by anything other than epic story, and no epic piece of film nor literature has ever been composed by anything other than the individual--the lone poet warrior and rugged warrior poet.  And too, in the long run, epic art is not about making money to serve the corporate fanboy/MBA fiatocracy; but it has ever been about heroically exalting the timeless, epic ideals--serving the universal, immutable moral premises--come hell or high water, as did Herman Melville and Dante.

Dante penned The Inferno in exile, and Melville died pennieless and unkown, with an unpublished copy of Billy Budd in his top desk drawer.  Both poet warriors--both ruggedly individualist souls served the immortal, timeless, epic truths; and soon, video games shall also achieve and exalt classical, epic art. Neither hired fake Christians to stage a protest of their art, neither sewed a cross in Dante's flesh while mocking epic Religion and Art, and neither put Beatrice in hell; but instead, both understood that she was incorruptible.

And this fall we can all look forward to Dr. E's (Dr. EA's) textbook The Gold 45 Revolver: The Hero's Journey in Arts Entrepreneurship & Technology, and the re-release of his novel Autumn Rangers: The Legend of The Gold 45 Revolver.

In 2005, Dr. E presented a Dante's Inferno Game at the DGEXPO, alongside Great Books Games (somebody contacted me in 2008 regarding buying dantesinfernogame.com!):
[url]http://dantesinfernogame.com[/url]
[url]http://greatbooksgames.com[/url]

"The physical action and dramatic action would be unified by the moral premise, thus deepening and emboldening the experience of both; thusly resulting in a higher artistic experience in the game." --Dr. E

"Just as a moral premise unifies movies, and just as holding onto a moral premise through adversity leads to complex and great stories such as those described by Joseph Campbell's Hero's Journey, so too would a moral premise unify a game and provide the game designers an easier method for designing open-ended, realistic games, without first of all going through every possible iteration of the game. " --Dr. E
