I looked it up, hoping you were just some ignorant boob. But alas, you are the Messenger of Pain...

This, however, may be worse...

But one key venture it won’t discuss is its work with Trion Worldwide to create content designed from the beginning to work on multiple platforms. Mr. Howe said the network is close to announcing a title and description of the project, which will launch as both a subscription-based, massively multiplayer online game and a television series.

A writer has been assigned to the project. The idea is to have the show completely synchronized so that when events happen in the show, they are reflected in the game, and vice versa.


That way, you can have the suck of video games based on TV shows, as well as the fail of TV shows based on video games, SIMULTANEOUSLY. Because, we need to find a new and interesting way to punish our viewers!

When I first heard this, I was doing an "OMG FAIL!!!!" but actually, it's not scifi being the idiots, this time. They've run into legal issues because they've been told they are not allowed to brand the name SciFi because it's a genre and therefore cannot be a company name. And that's why they're rebranding.

... then they should call it Skiffy! lol :D

if you're on scifi, then you like to watch science fiction. i don't see how renaming it will change their target audience. only content will do that. if scifi want a bigger audience then they need to stop killing off good shows lol :D

This has made me laugh so hard. I have enjoyed reading all the genre fans reactions to the rebrand decision. I think the one that has made me laugh the most is the guy that created SyFyl.us as a forum to rant about the decision. I mean beyond the Stargate, BSG & Sanctuary shows...there really is no SciFi on that channel anymore. Reality and wrestling are NOT what I think of when thinking of science fiction. ooo...let us not forget those horrid B movies they air ALL the time.
ellymelly: remove the crazy manellymelly on March 18th, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
LMAO

they should go back to focusing on what their channel actually is - science fiction. pay good money, end up with decent shows and lift their ratings. traditionally, that's how it works. (though i'll miss the B movies of FAIL)

What's even more lame is that they paid the guy behind Syfyportal to buy the name from him -- not only did his idiotic site earned him a huge cash payoff but he gets extra publicity for his site's new remake as Airlock Alpha or whatever.

*sigh*
