if they weren't better off throwing all that work into NWN2

Well, considering Obsidian is doing NWN2 and the fact that the DLA group did the new Premium module, the total amount of time that BioWare invested in all of this was not a burden

If game developers are anything like gamers, than they tend to be lazy, procrastinative people.

Wow. Then I don't work with a single gamer. Sad, really...

Going to have to pick this one up!

News Comments > No Premium Module Program for NWN2?
4. Clarifications Jun 8, 2006, 12:51  CrushBug 
 
The existing Premium modules are not shutting down nor are they going to stop being sold.

Currently, there are no plans for any future NWN1 Premium Modules at this time.

BioWare's marital arts-themed RPG

Actually, all the marriage stuff has been cut and we want to concentrate on the martial arts.

I read on a few places that SR2 will not be using Starforce in North America. That may not be correct, but it has been posted about on a few forums.

7. Peeps and not suing Feb 13, 2006, 16:20  CrushBug 
 
If you think that this is the first thing with the red cross and video games in the last 15 years, you would be very wrong.

They are NOT suing, they are notifying the game companies. Nowhere does it say that there have been lawsuits filed. Ceist and Desist orders are pretty easy to write.

The Red Cross is only supposed to be used in specific situations as outlined by international law and supported by major governments (US and Canada included) and this has NOTHING to do with trademarks or lawsuits.

2. Re: Canadian Red Cross... Feb 13, 2006, 14:12  CrushBug 
 
Yeah, have to agree with you there. And its important to remember that its not just the Canadian Red Cross, but that the American Red Cross has been doing it as well and for many years.

And its NEVER been about trademarks, because you cannot trademark the red cross in Canada or the US, because this is covered under international law and the Geneva Convention.

You are only supposed to use it for the specific purposes outlined there and nothing else. Its pretty simple.
