Hellbinder,

Perhaps you were unaware that Derek already 'owned' millions before he ever started in the gaming industry, and that it's these millions that are supporting him and his crowd of 19 freelance guys. Notice that these guys are being paid for the work they deliver, iow, it's not like he's paying them 100K a year (presumably).

Oh, and no 13, when you suggest that I read an interview first, it would have helped if you had noticed that I actually quoted a section from that interview. Kinda hard to do that without reading it, right?

Sure, he frames it without the curses, rants, flames and other stuff he's become notorious for, but to me, underneath this minor coating of civility it's still the "My Games Fucking Rock And The Rest Of The Industry Fucking Sucks" crap that he's been spewing for years.

Which is my opinion, last I checked I was still allowed to have one in this country
