Owning the Territory on GamesIndustry.biz is an interview with Paul Wedgewood of Splash Damage about what the future holds for the UK-based developer following their deal with ZeniMax Media, though specifics about what they are currently up to are still being withheld. An interesting point he touches on is highlighted in a separate article, as he describes the emphasis publishers now place on achieving specific Metacritic scores as "ridiculous," and while he is quick to point out that they are not receiving such pressure from ZeniMax, he also admits that Splash Damage is obviously still eager to get good reviews. He also makes the point that the way games are reviewed make summarizing critical acclaim a dicey proposition: "We know that some websites score quite high and some quite low, but in general, all websites tend to score between 60 and 100. There's never a 37. It's as if that whole section doesn't exist, so zero starts at 60, so three stars, and goes up to five. It's just not really an accurate enough measure."
