You know the recession is bad when Fortune 500 companies hire game media moguls to star in their web videos.
The Escapist's publisher Alex Macris is a pretty cool guy. When the Japanese electronics company Samsung was looking for someone to sell its fancy 3D technology to the masses, it made sense to go out and get someone who speaks for gamer culture. Of course, Macris is perhaps better known for his gamemastering skills at the Dungeons & Dragons table than he is for wearing 3D glasses, but, that's ok, he wears a black turtleneck. Like Steve Jobs, he knows what he's talking about.
I'm not sure where I stand on the whole 3D in your home thing, or if I want to wear funky glasses, but Macris sure makes it look easy. The glasses look lightweight and I would probably forget I had them on after a while.
I won't be able to forget that I saw Shrek 3D however. Nothing will wash that from my brain.
