Op Ed - Realtime Crisis.
In the longer term, however, I suspect that the impact of RTW's demise will be felt by the UK games business for many years to come. The company's failure is not entirely a shock - it launched an MMO-style game which was hugely expensive to develop, but which received poor reviews, a combination which would be a fatal blow to most game companies. The scale of the failure, and the context in which it has happened, however, will have a major impact on how the industry does business.

Yadda yadda yadda, idiot investors give game developer tons of money, yadda yadda yadda, game developer turns out incapable of managing a McDonald's drive-through window, much less a project of this scope, yadda yadda yadda, project fails miserably.

We've seen this, oh... I dunno... five THOUSAND times before in the game industry? So why is this so special, exactly?

The industry is full of blustering dipshits who can talk a great deal more than they can deliver. And yet they all keep getting hired, over and over and over again. It's a worse "Good Old Boys" network than the fucking NFL.

Every single one of those RTW clowns will have another gig in 6 months, where they will be free to waste yet even more money. (I'm talking about the guys in charge, not the poor little coding peon that did all the work.)
