The Loot Council- September 13, 2009

The Loot Council is regular column highlighting interesting and informative posts from around the WoW finance blogosphere.

First Up, Business News

On the WoW side of things there was lots of talk of Inscription last week

WoWenomic news highlights not specific to scribes were also pretty good…

Interestingly, there’s also a Monopoly movie in the works. We know, we know… sounds dumb right? But get this, one of our team members is kinda sorta close with an East Coast film producer who shared this interesting theory with him: Seems that video game movies were kinda successful (but, according to the movie execs, we were too dumb to get it) so they went with toy movies. Toys were the next logical step in the descent of our intellectual play and by stepping down the ladder of intellect and complexity the movies were somewhat more successful (Transformers 3 anyone?). The next step in this process is to churn out movies based on board games so here we go with Monopoly. Make sense now? No? Still sounds dumb? Yeah, we think so too but we can’t wait for Checkers, The Movie. We still stand by our own theory, video game movies are just fine thank you very much. Perhaps the problem is not the audience but the crappy movies the studios churned out.

Note that the above blogs are not listed in any particular order outside of the way the team brainstormed them. Please let us know if there are any sites that you feel we should feature and we will do so in a future edition of The Loot Council.
