Randy Pitchford on Unreal Engine & MoH

Randy Pitchford calls moaning developers cry babies on VideoGamer.com has a quote from the head cog at Gearbox from interview to be published tomorrow. During a recent Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway event Randy describes how pleased they are working with Epic and the Unreal engine, not specifically naming Silicon Knights in suggesting that developers having issues with Unreal support may themselves be to blame: "I've seen some of the stuff on the internet about the problems and I don't know if these developers are maybe new, or not used to using other people's technology or if they've gotten too many inexperienced developers or they're just cry-babies. I just don't know." There's also a Q&A with Randy on Computer and Video Games discussing BiA, but not to be left out of the controversy, they also except s quote from Randy where he expresses the opinion that the Medal of Honor franchise is "in trouble," saying: "there's something just missing about what's in the heart of what the fantasy is of playing these kinds of games and I think somebody needs to get hold of that franchise that really cares and can do that."

Randy's right. The gaming industry is the bottom barrel for coders anyway.

Obviously someone who's never actually worked at a game company.

Even more obviously, someone who's never written code and knows nothing of programming.

Game code is orders of magnitude more complex, sophisticated, and elegant than the simplistic boilerplate churned out at GM or Microsoft or Boeing.

Programmers at said companies couldn't pass an entry level code test at most dev studios.
