Embargo!

Today was a bit of a cluster. Already weighed down with more stories than anyone could hope to finish writing in a day, I decided to go ahead and write up my interview about upcoming action game X-Men: Origins. After posting it, I hit up Activision to see why I still hadn't received the images. Turns out they had changed the embargo date without telling me or one other site.

Nothing feels better than having all of your peers think you just screwed them. Fortunately, Activision took the high road and emailed everyone under embargo to explain that there had been a mix-up on the details of the timing.

It's probably best that companies not swap out embargo dates at the last minute and if they absolutely must, they probably should call people and not rely on outdated email lists.

Fun day!

So that's what happened to the article about the Wolverine game. I know I saw it on the site around lunch time today but didn't get to read it. I thought I was seeing things when I got home and could not find the article. Thanks for the update.
