Bill Roper Joins Disney/Marvel

Bill Roper has landed a new gig at the Disney Interactive Media Group where the veteran of Blizzard, Flagship, and Cryptic will oversea the creative direction for the Disney's Marvel-based videogames, reports Gamasutra. "We are pleased to have Bill join our team," said Alex Seropian, Disney Interactive's senior vice president and general manager of core games. "With 17 years of experience in the worldwide gaming industry, we are confident that Bill has the creative vision necessary to help guide the next wave of development and product for DIMG’s Marvel Games."

Personally, I appreciate the warning that games from Disney/Marvel will have some extra suck in them from now on.

As long as someone will be cataloging his latest disaster (like the dearly departed flagshipped did), then I don't mind him being employed in the game industry again.

Disney wasn't likely to make a game I wanted to buy anyway, so as far as I am concerned this is a good move!  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

It was posted because Blue, like everyone else who runs a website, knows that his name is one of those names that get people pissed....

and when internet nerds get pissed you get webpage hits.

For fuck's sake, how DOES this goddamned toolbag keep getting jobs???? ATTENTION GAME INDUSTRY: THE GUY IS FUCKING WORTHLESS. STOP HIRING HIS DUMB ASS.

Shit, and we think the NFL is an "old boys network." They've got NOTHING on the fucking idiot game industry.

It has nothing to do with the game industry...virtually -all- of the big corporations work this way. Getting an executive position at one of them has nothing to do with actual past performance, it's all who you know and how well you bullshit.

Rofl, this guy has been riding off his Blizzard success for like 20 years. On the one hand, you have to admire that, even though it's probably totally unwarranted.

Disney cancels a promising Pirates game, puts out a terrible Tron game instead, closes the studio responsible for both, and then hires Bill?

*gets popcorn*

This is going to be fascinating.
