bbyEquip rooms for horses, BC hotel group says, and lower the stress of separation

VICTORIA, BC – Accent Inns is once again at the forefront of innovation in the highly-competitive world of hospitality, with the addition of one more offering to their already-specialized services: equi-accommodation, aka the provision of rooms for people and horses, together. For many years, the BC-based, family-owned hotel group catered to guests travelling with their pets, their bicycles and motorcycles. Now, horses – whether for show, racing, riding or just companionship – will be shown the same outstanding service that travellers have come to count on at Accent Inns since 1986. (more…)

5 Mistakes That Game Publisher Make Over and Over

Battlefield 4 video game by EA

Battlefield 4 video game by EA

Being a multi-billion dollar a year industry would to many be a sign that things are being done well. However for every game that does well and breaks the bank, there are scores that fail to find an audience, largely go unnoticed, or worse, cause a developer to fail.  I worked at both Monolith and Sierra as I was starting out as a film and game journalist so I have seen how this system works up close and personally for several years in addition to over 20 years as a game journalist.  With that in mind, let us look at the five biggest mistakes that game companies make that often lead to disaster.

Happy St Patrick’s Day

Friday, March 14th, 2014

st pat dayAs a little Irish Colleen growing up in Ireland, here’s some of the things I remember and was told about St Patrick’s Day; wearing green, pining some shamrock “the real stuff” to our jackets, painting our cheeks, heading out as a family to watch the “St Patrick’s Day parade,” having fun making noise (but not me, I’m a good girl NOT). After the parade we couldn’t wait to get home for that yummy Irish Stew. You could smell it as soon as you walked in the house and of course those green cupcakes for dessert. Mum made the best. Oh and watching the Darby O’Gill and the little people movie. (got to say that banshee was always scary) (more…)
