If I were in EA's shoes, I would definitely switch to letting my studios get on with what they're good at. If they'd done that, Bioware would probably still be a top studio, and we'd still have a…

I mentioned the other day that, a few years back, I piled on the pounds. I'd never been overweight before, and, my god, did my body let me know it didn't like it. I had no energy, was foggy headed,…

I'll have to be a dissenter on this one. The theme is not bad, but I think it's a fairly generic bit of fantasy bombast. I thought the Kingmaker theme was better, and the D:OS 2 theme far more…

I think these big corporations need to learn that buying studios, then sticking the corporate oar in and creating designed-by-committee product that chases the current trend, is a very poor recipe…

The Sopranos is another benchmark, IMO. I don't think it was consistently great throughout its run, but again the first couple of seasons I think were exceptional. There was a depth to it that I…

I also enjoyed Killing Is Easy, a documentary about the standup Patrice O'Neal.

Watched a very good documentary called White Riot, about the clash between punk and fascism in the 70s.

I guess the best case scenario is that the game itself is not in bad shape, but that the relationship between Paradox and the studio broke down. Occasionally you do come across people that are just…

I think the down-side of it is that it becomes an even riskier bet for the backers. When projects were going for realistic funding, you'd at least know they'd have to hit the level of a sensible…

I think a lot of you guys might enjoy this one. It got hammered by reviewers, because of a buggy release, and being a bit slow in the beginning. But it's really a good game.

Pretty drastic step to take a game away from a studio at this stage. Must be a proper mess.

On a personal note, one of the reasons I remember the beginning of season 3 fondly, is that there was a time lapse, during which Lee had gone to the bad place, and let himself go. I went through a…

Yes, that was the idea - tying into "all this has happened before, and it will happen again."

I remember we used to discuss the show at the time, and that as an ending was one of the popular…

For me, I think there was a bit of a clash between the mythic nature of the show, and the approach of Ronald D. Moore. I remember an interview with him about halfway through the run, in which he said…

It's amazing to think that's 16 years ago now - it would be like someone in 1990 discussing a show from the mid 70s. My life was very different in 2004. Perhaps it's just the age I'm at, but the two…

I don't think there's anyone going to crowdfunding for a full and realistic budget, anymore. They just try to get what they can, but there's not a prayer it would really fund the game. They're…

Yeah, I wasn't too convinced when it started, then I got into it for a while, but season 3 kind of lost me again.

Could also just be them targeting console-level hardware for performance, not worrying too much about optimising further for lower-end PCs. I reckon that goes on quite a lot.

Good to see it's…

Some promising projects pushing forward with 3D in Godot. Not up to AAA standards yet, but a lot of that is down to these being little solo projects, and not having a team of artists. With the…

It also seems they farmed the job out to a third party, so it shouldn't impact whatever else they're doing. More or less free money, really.

I wonder if the answer is just that they're pretty good at what they do. In the past, they've been known to have quite a small team by AAA standards.
