Police raided the Paris headquarters of Vivendi Universal and the homes of its disgraced former chief Jean-Marie Messier on Thursday as part of an investigation into the media giant's accounts.

32. HB is right Dec 13, 2002, 01:27 SouL_DragooN
Many of us that are making games have no choice in the games we make. We really want to make the best damn game ever. However, the "suits" do not see it that way. The suits have never played games but they have a buisness degree and that means they are always right. Never mind that a buisness degree means you drank your way through college while we got our masters to make this game.
O well HB is right.... Blame the suits.... they are the ones that make the teams anyway
Maybe I should have spent 2.5 years getting a business degree instead of the 7 for a programming / visulaization masters.... Some day the world will realize again "plug-in" CEOs do not work... A CEO needs to know the industry they work in THUS THEY NEED TO MAKE GAMES DAMNIT NOT HAVE A DEGREE FROM I DRANK A LOT UNIVERSITY....
