Yes, that's certainly a factor in some cases.

I'm just thinking about one large company that I worked for. When you entered the I.T. department, you would first encounter The Developers, who…

In fairness, I've just now looked at the KS, and it seems like it could be a proper game. I was just reacting to the newsbit here, which has some rambling about a dog repeatedly raiding the fridge,…

Personally, I'm just a bit of a collector. I like having good emulators so I can have some of my old favourites in my library. Some of the oldies still play really well, especially when the emulators…

Nah, just messing about. I can't really see doggie trash-sniffing simulator finding its way into my backlog.

I'm wondering if it's a bit of a sales disaster. The Steam stats are only showing a couple of thousand peak players, it's outside the top 100 on Steam, and it's not very high up on GOG either. Could…

Can't really blame the engines anymore, either. All the major ones, including Unreal and Unity, publish their source code now. If there's anything wrong with the loading of data, the code is right…

Good article here.

Sounds like over-expansion and lousy management, to me.

I would suspect a total Charlie Foxtrot in the way the company has been run. They had great recognition, major licenses, and at least decent sales. Maybe they overcommited and just got in too deep.

Yes, I find the delay in GOG patches strange. I'd have thought they'd have some sort of change control system for the devs to upload a new build, and create the deltas for a new patch. I wonder if…

Yeah, my opinion is that it's a moderately risky KS, but I don't see why they shouldn't get a chance. TBH, the attitude of the Art Director hasn't done much to inspire my confidence (he's still…

I'd think there'd be a good case to try a KS, and reform as Telltale 2.0 in all but name. Maybe come up with their own IP, and carry on.

I wonder sometimes if the technical weaknesses in many games stem from the reliance on using existing engines. In the old days, they had to build their own engines, and would have had John…

I'm up for seeing what Joaquin can do with it. Very interesting actor.

In the Heath Ledger version, I thought the makeup was brilliant, and the cut mouth smile was a great touch. When he first…

RPCS3 emulator for PS3 is coming along well

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCawbVE6xPg

Still a way to go before it would be pleasant to play, but they're doing extremely well with the very tough challenge emulating PS3 hardware.

Frozen Synapse 2

I really liked the first one, an unusual simultaneous turn-based tactics game. I'll be waiting a while before playing this one, as it's another one being docked points for early technical issues….
