Here’s a little secret: I actually have no idea what Grimsdottir’s secret is. I spent most of the final cutscene in the Third Echelon level trying to skip it – and even when I couldn’t, I have to overtired kids trying to sleep off a big weekend – so the TV was on mute and I was subtitle free – meaning that there could have been the greatest narrative plot twist happening on-screen and I’d be non-the-wiser.
Insert shrug here.
I’m feeling a bit jaded today, after the media have been touting Melbourne as the new ‘home’ of esport. What I’m particularly upset about is my efforts two years ago to build Victoria up as an esport hub, and was flat-it told that the Government didn’t want to be in this space and it was to be – quote – “industry-led.” My wife, quite rightly, points out that there’s not really any incentive for the Government to treat me as an ‘industry leader’ in this space, but it still stings, and I am allowed to indulge in some petulance on my own blog!
Here’s what it boils down to: for someone who has so openly and willingly put themselves on the line for esport, often at the expense and ridicule of others, to be so summarily discarded as having any influence locally in the esport scene? That’s the bit that bites. I acknowledge that there’s political traction to be made out of this – I was quite openly involved in discussions with the State Treasurer’s Staff – but obviously the reality slap of being a small fish in a large pond has hit a little harder than I wanted it to. I’m going to need a day to work out my next steps.
Anyway, it seems like my day is still marginally better than Sam Fisher’s, who just infiltrated and escaped an NSA office, blowing it up in the process – so all disappointment is subjective, I guess!
