Fox is basically doing the same thing with the 24 mini-series coming this summer. (Which has me excited to NO END, because I absolutely fucking LOVE 24.)

Bit of a shitty move. And if you own the DLC, you need to make sure and download it and then go to the store and flag it as family upgrade...

Though I'm sure they are not paying anyone off, they are the ones who were "paid off" to make it exclusive, and their benefactors are the ones paying people off.
Yeah. I doubt anyone thinks Respawn is doing it, but it's hard to believe that EA isn't. His response is like being pissed that people associate you with mobsters while you're eating pastrami with the Gambini family.

Levine always seemed a bit coy about what he was doing after BI. I mean, it's not like he was going to announce his next game or anything, but he seemed a bit non-committal or even apathetic.
At the end of the day, Levine has no ownership of Irrational Games so I doubt he chose to shut down the studio. Obviously, he's been a polarizing figure over the years and BI may not have been the biggest seller, but he's being fairly open about what's going on and taking some steps to help the laid off staff.
I'd love to know the full background of things, but it's almost like he's trying to deal with some stuff and, because of his past records, Take-Two is willing to wage a small bet on his behalf.
As for Bioshock Infinite, I enjoyed the game, but it felt a bit lifeless. I was expecting a significantly more unique experience and the combat felt a bit flat. The ending really helped push up my internal favorability numbers of the game, thought I did find it striking how much more exciting of a world I created in my head, based upon the promotional materials, than what I eventually experienced.
What are "...narrative-driven games for the core gamer that are highly replayable...?"
Noting that he is working on the Logan's Run screenplay,

? He doesn't own Irrational games, Take-Two does. I fail to see how TT dissolving Irrational because of Kens departure is Kens fault.
Well, he explicitly says this: "I am winding down Irrational Games as you know it. "
That does seem to imply that, you know, he is the one doing it...

Wow, that seems kinda... harsh? Guys make a very succesful game, and then because Ken Levine wants to make a smaller studio, everyone else gets sacked?
Thanks, Ken Levine?

He's the lead designer/creative director, Carmack just coded the engines. If you would like to complain about recent (and upcoming) id Software's games, he's the guy to send emails to.
oooh, future Doom beta access. Because id is going to absolutely rock the house now that their one remaining asset, Carmack, is also gone. Keep your eyes open for Doom, fellas![...]
I see I need to explain things to you: The only good thing about id's game has been their technical prowess. The game design has sucked since the days of Doom 2, or Quake for some.
Now that the technical guy is gone, all they have left is their design guys, who have already proven themselves to be terrible.
So what's left to cheer for? Oh, right.
So, for me, id games are very good. They're fun and the "gunplay" of Rage was brilliant. I do not think it impossible for other programmer geniuses to take over Carmack's work properly.

Jackson was right, though. That guy should not be an entertainment reporter.
