Oh give me a break. Stick a sock in it and grouse about something more productive. You tempt me to buy more EE copies to spite you. Beamdog did not pee in your cereal.

Supposedly that's what Brad Wardell is good at: decent opponent AI. At least that's what gets him excited about programming stuff directly.

Turns out, good AI is hard. I could probably optimize an…

That sounds like sort of a turn-based Total War "In Spaaaace!". It sounds like a pretty good concept that I'd be down for, but when I play 4x games, I do most commonly play them for precisely that…

The model is perfectly reasonable but it needs to be run in a different context.

Nearly all software development has shifted from a "shipping and done" standpoint to a "software life-cycle". Part…

2. Games are the highest form of artistic technology.
