I wouldn't trust that Wikipedia page if I were you.

Well... I guess the point is that he was around during the early years... even if he was only a tester for System Shock.

It's cool that he doesn't try to take credit for other people's work.

Yeah, surely Skyrim will be back next week.

It will probably appear up top again when there's some decent DLC... again when there's a big sale... and again when there's a GOTY edition.

But yeah... I would have to imagine that most people that were going to buy the base game at full price, have already done so, by now.

Looks like Old-School RPGs are finally making a comeback!

Wish this was on IOS and Android, though. Turn based is perfect for tablets (and phones).

Wait, Harvey Smith?????

Ayup

Raphael Colantonio is a longtime fan of Looking Glass stuff... which is why they made Arx to be the "spiritual successor of Ultima Underworld". So there's no wonder why he hired Harvey. The funny thing is that I don't think Harvey was around for the older Looking Glass products.

EDIT: I guess he was since he worked on Wing Commander (at Origin) then System Shock then Thief (At Looking Glass): Harvey Smith on Wikipedia

The original Wizardry only had 10 levels... but took forever to get through. That was due to how hard it was to get through a level without going back up to town to sell your stuff and rez your dead party members.

That said... I may wait until it's released and folks can give an estimate of how short it really is. If it's real short... I'll probably only buy the IOS version, then.

Haven't bought a UBI game since the DRMless Prince of Persia and will not give them a single cent until they remove the DRM.

SOE - Where MMOs refuse to die.

I'm surprised they haven't acquired Horizons (http://www.istaria.com) yet.

Oh my god that game was sooooo bad. My Planetside outfit was looking for something else to do once PS started dieing down thanks to Core Combat being asstastic. And we beta tested that load of dung. Holy shit. I thought it never made it out the door, I didn't know they changed the name and released that failure of coding.

Actually... it released as "Horizons"... went through being sold and bought by 3 different companies... and finally ended up with a company created by some of the original devs, who then changed the name.

Apple has stolen a lot more from Microsoft then Microsoft had stolen from Apple. Thing is, Apples fans are VERY vocal when this happens but Microsoft fans are more quiet since this copy is normal from every business.

Well... I sort of meant that as a joke. Of course the industry steals from each other, constantly! Apple originally stole their shit from Xerox, though. Xerox execs were too stupid to know what do with the stuff that their PARC "think tank" came up with.

Link is broken... but this one works:

Microsoft Bans...

It makes sense though. Why would you want all of your employees buying a competitor's product with your company funds?

Obviously their R&D department that reverse engineers stuff should have an exception. I mean, how else would they steal shit from Apple, like they always have?

Bullfrog..... Once great, bought by EA, turned to shit.. Now no more
Westwood Studios.... Once great, bought by EA, turned to shit.. Now no more..
Looking Glass Studios... Once great, bought by EA, turned to shit.. Now no more...
Origin Systems... Once great, bought by EA, turned to shit, now lives on as a hideous Storefront in name only..

Bioware is next on the Once great, turned to shit and now no more list..

Oh well.... When will these developers EVER learn... Oh right.. the promise of a shit-ton of money will make even the mighty fall...

EA had better keep their filthy shit covered mitts away from the likes of CD Projeckt Red etc...

Looking Glass was never bought up by EA. They only published their games.

Looking Glass went belly up after System Shock 2... due to lack of sales... and lack of promotion / care on EA's part. They split into 2 factions. Warren Spector's faction went to Ion Storm and made Deus Ex and Deus Ex 2... and is no more. Ken Levine's faction created Irrational Games and made Freedom Force, Freedom Force vs. the 3rd Reich, SWAT 4, Bioshock, and Bioshock 2. They Are currently working on Bioshock Infinite.

Needless to say... with the exception of Deus Ex, none of these games have the chemistry that the whole Looking Glass team had, which is a pity.

It also goes to show that when personnel rotate in and out over time... how a studio like Bioware can lose it's chemistry. Regardless of the EA purchase (which is definitely a factor, as well), Bioware ain't the Bioware of the BG days.
