Great comment about that Lamestop article....

I wanted to comment on the quote above: good at "discovery, curation and customer acquisition". What a bunch of BS market speak. Discovery ? You mean looking at what's available . Curation ? You mean storage. Customer acquisition : You mean advertising.

Gee - you mean you are a retailer. I can't stand this kind of euphemistic crap.

Indeed. Steam already has 75 million unique customers and will keep growing. Lamestop needs them, not the other way around. They know their days are numbered they're just trying to cling on like any outmoded business - Blockbuster anyone?

He's seriously overly optimistic - as a 22 year old should be. Are there practical applications VR will be a boon for? Absolutely - science, medicine, military, etc. Will most people want to strap a TV to their face for home entertainment and '3D video calls'? Absolutely not. When they can get it down something like a pair of sunglasses or contacts or the like then it'll start becoming mainstream entertainment.

Yes, it is bullshit. Complete and utter at that. Sounds like the ID assholes trying to reframe the debate posed as actual, real science.

Cargo pants rule! The only thing better than cargo pants are cargo rip pants that turn into shorts and back again.

Yeah, that's what TV needs, more shows about cops, doctors, and lawyers because the fact they make up 3/4 of all shows anyway isn't near enough.

Bats, actually flu shots can cause - and do - Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

Google 'flu shot gbs' for plenty more information. Some of the stories are pretty horrifying. It's a risk people don't consider enough.

Dear CRTC: Fuck you.

Seconded. Fuck the CRTC. Bunch of cronies of the old school cable companies pretending to be otherwise. Too bad the PM didn't disband them.

And why would a corporatist like Harper disband them? Only reason would be to give the cable lobby complete free reign. Much like the FTC the idea of such a regulatory body is a good one. However, in practice it doesn't work the way it should because its run by lobbyists themselves.

Kids who died from flu last season: Most skipped vaccine.

Wonder how many people got paralyzed from the flu vaccine last season.

Yeah, thanks I'll risk the flu over GBS any day of the week. I don't even remember the last time I got the flu but it was probably a decade ago, and I seem to recall I was only down for 2 or 3 days. If the vaccines were safe they wouldn't have a waiver.

I'm still pissed about Broken Age... not playing it until the full game is released. But it is obvious that Schaffer and company don't know how to do things within budget... nor on time.

I think what happened with Broken Age is that the Kickstarter was way more successful than they expected and created enormous pressure to make a game of a scope and production value that could live up to expectations, and you just can't make that for the money they collected, at least at the labor costs a well-established US studio like Double Fine runs up. I'm not sure what other options they realistically had; if they had made a smaller-scale game it would have felt anti-climactic to many. I think Schafer also felt a certain kind of responsibility towards other crowdfunded projects as a tent pole for the concept. So I still have sympathy for their predicament on that one.


That's poor management and nothing else. Project management is easy if you're organized and know what you're doing. And most developers don't. How hard is it to compartmentalize a project?

Base Project = X number of employees + X number of days + X number of dollars.

Stretch goals = See above. Stretch goals commence and are completed after base project is finished and good.

Of course you have to actually have a defined goal to work toward, otherwise you're just screwing around wasting time and money. Quit screwing around! You kids screw around too much!

Another year or two of this sort of crap and crowdfunding/early-access will be pretty much over. There will always be a few exceptions, but the gravy train is leaving the station. Yeah, after the fiasco that will be SC it will have definitely left the station.
