The serious business of making games

Yeah, got it on day 1 and finished it pretty quickly. The structure is definitely a bit more sophisticated and complex due to the tales being more centered on the individual perspectives and stories compared to the first book. It’s more humane and does a better job at detailing the toll that lifestyle and studio closures take.

Bungie making multiplayer action game shock.

I wonder what will make it different from Destiny?

Oh speaking of which, Destiny was supposed to last 10 years right? 3 more years to go.

EA / BioWare posted job listings for “loot designer” and “monetization designer” after that Anthem launched so look how well that turned out.

Didn’t Dante Alighieri write about ‘monetization designers’ in Inferno? It has been a while since I read it.

Canto 21; I think they are in the 5th bolgia.

BOTW 2 or Prime 4 would get my money for a Switch Pro, that’s for sure.

A long oral history of Guitar Hero and the co-developers, Harmonix and RedOctane.

Game hardware-related, but thought it was interesting and there was nowhere better to put it.

EA got hacked



Hah, I was thinking something along the lines of “How can they tell it wasn’t FIFA 2011 code?” but that works better.

If they’ve leaked personal data, they are super fucked.

Aren’t CDPR the victims here? They’re not the ones leaking anything, it’s stolen data being used to try extort them.

I believe that’s correct.
