Mike Capps Leaves Epic Entirely

In a post on Facebook Michael Capps announces he is completely parting ways with Epic Games, after indicating he would be serving the company in an advisory role when he announced late last year he was stepping down from his post of president of the studio (thanks VideoGamer). "When we announced that I wanted to transition out of my leadership role at Epic, the plan was for a continued but less active role, service on the board of directors, and ideally, being that eccentric semi-retired guy who still comes to playtests and gold parties," writes Capps. "Iím sad to say that plans have changed, and as of February 11th, Iím no longer affiliated with Epic Games." Besides burping his impending baby, Capps says he is "considering seats on a few company and advisory boards" (which sounds similar enough to his most recent role at Epic that it suggests questions about the departure), is "proud to serve as an advocate for our art in Washington," and is also contemplating pursuing teaching options.

when i read articles like this it makes me nostalgic for 1995-1997. That was when i had joined the military and was at my first post in san diego.. finally bought my first computer. a Pentium 133 and a verite 1000 video card.

Quake, Unreal, duke.. some of the other games. I remember pre-ordering quake from ID and getting the CD in the mail from them directly. i played that game for 72 hours straight over a weekend. Connecting to my first wan game via IP... reading about team fortress mod at stomped and trying it thinking it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

the first time you walked off the crashed ship in unreal and the jaw droping effect of the planet...

yeah and reading plan updates about how john carmack had traded in his old Ferrari and 985,000 dollars for his new one..

what is my point? gaming was magical back then. the devs made the games, worked their asses off and got the profit. Now its all mega publishers, slave labor, board members and bullshit... none of the great studios exist or operate like they did back then. Its all just gone to hell in a hand basket.

If only there was a reset button somewhere on this thing.
