Well…. where do I start? Perhaps you should read this article just to refresh yourself, or if you haven’t been in the loop, please read this article so you’ll at least have a clue! http://novacommand.com/?p=1
Back in April, on the 17th to be exact, The Ice Man made a post on Novaworld. Here is a brief portion of it:
“We will also be implementing a new NovaWorld User Agreement (EULA) and enhanced communications with our customers via NovaWorld, Twitter, Facebook, and a soon to be announced Blog. These steps will mark the beginning of a better coordinated approach to deliver new products and services” .
It looks like I may have very well uncovered their “soon to be announced” Blog. Since Novalogic has not shared publicly this blog, one would think that this is or was going to be it. Before I post the blog, please note that Novalogic does have an official blog which has virtually been abandoned.
Here is their old blog, started back in 2009 to help promote Delta Force Xtreme 2. It was put together by a marketing company called, Strike Marketing with blog posts written by Jen of Strike Marketing, and Daqamagik, who is Alex Gilman (Novalogic’s Past Associate Producer). http://novalogicinc.blogspot.com/
Now, back to this “soon to be announced” blog by our beloved, The Ice Man. This blog seems to apparently be to help promote a specific game/title. From a marketing standpoint, this is a good way to help brand a product. When you create a niche blog like this, it can be used to direct all content towards the one single product rather then many. Focus is key when attempting to market a new product.
Sorry to keep you hanging with the blog link. Before I post it, keep in mind the following things.
- FACT: Novalogic’s user account on flickr is jointopsangelfalls. Confirmed by a screenshot posted by Novalogic staff that tracks back to the account.
- FACT: Novalogic created 2 google + brand pages, Joint Ops Angel Falls and Joint Operations Angel Falls. A Delta Force Angel Falls brand page does not exist.
- FACT: A blogspot blog titled, http://jointoperationsangelfalls.blogspot.com/ has BEEN REMOVED. See below:
HERE IS THE “SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED BLOG”, the one that still exists. Take note, it uses the same background image seen on Novalogic, Novaworld, the Twitter account of Novalogic. Also, this background image is more clear and untouched compared to how it shows up in other areas that Novalogic uses it. This brings me to believe that this is a blog setup by Novalogic and not some fan, or outsider. They wouldn’t have access to an image like this.
http://jointopsangelfalls.blogspot.com/ – PLEASE NOTE: ONCE AGAIN WE SEE Joint Ops Angel Falls. There is no Delta Force Angel Falls blogspot blog.
We haven’t heard from The Ice Man since that posting on April 17th, about a “Soon To Be Announced Blog”. Now you can see why, there are no posts to date…. this NDA has to end… or the court case of Novalogic VS Activision has to settle. The community deserves better!
