Derek Smart broke the news too which is going to annoy them.

Wandering Samurai also did MW:LL, aka the best Crysis mod of all time and the Mechwarrior game we should have gotten with combined arms instead of MW:O.

No! You just don't understand game development. Turnover is just part of the business. Happens all the time! No big deal! :byodood:

I wanted to argue with this but I literally couldn't think of a single one. Closest is stuff like FTL but that's really just 'open the door and see which designed encounter you get'.
FTL's encounters aren't designed (beyond the boss), there's a random set of weapons/defenses/etc that opponents draw from which fits the definition of procedurally generated pretty well. Roguelikes use procedural generation if you're into that sort of thing. Left 4 Dead was pretty fun. The Civ series has always used it well, same with XCom. But yeah the core gameplay has to be fun.

It is good and healthy to keep your expectations in check, except when it comes to Star Citizen's demise. It will be fireworks and magic and it will happen all at once, with a gigantic crater left in its wake.
nah a bad game will be released and bad add-ons will trickle out and the backers will defend it while privately being disappointed with their purchases and everyone else will point out how bad it is while privately being disappointed that it came out at all

Hmm, it might have been Sean Tracy on Last Great Starship, no sign of a change on his linkedin yet, but he's far away from LA in F42 Germany.

Not that being near LA at all would be bad if you worked for CIG, I'm sure it's a great place full of fun people.

You might be right. I did a Google search on "technical designer" in relation to game development and got this job posting for a technical designer at CIG over in Santa Monica.

does working at certain dev studios put a black mark on you? like lets say you worked at zynga

I might be wrong, but I think in many cases your work speaks for itself. If you are an artist, you have ea portfolio, if you are a developer you might have some sample code you have written, etc.

okay that makes sense

i guess the artists could get a pass but i feel like it would be hard to brag about your star citizen portfolio as a developer :stare:

i guess you could sell it as "look, this was a mess and I helped make it not a mess by doing X, Y, Z"

Remember as a mid level employee you have no influence on that. That would be like judging every utility worker at Enron when they applied to a new job.
