It's ok, according to the dictionary literally also means figuratively now. GG popular usage.

I still can't stop laughing at Reddit thinking that Derek Smart was behind the fake imgur reports that took SC's pictures down because he wrote about burning down JPG ships. Yes, obviously that was meant literally. How stupid can autists be, it's beyond me, fucken :gary:.
Creating Stargur in response only to have that fail in turn made it even better.

Pepsi does own a fair share of stuff but their philosophy is to saturate the market with poor product at cheaper prices.

Coca-Cola owns Dr. Pepper. These 2 sodas are the greatest sodas that have ever existed.

The one product Pepsi had that I like was Pepsi Crystal but that didn't last long.

Coca-Cola actually doesn't own Dr. Pepper, the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group does. They have contracted out their bottling and manufacture to both Coke and Pepsi, as well as doing it independently, depending on region.

People in Austin are being laid off, precisely as predicted by Derek Smart in September. I don't think CIG have made the Austin office close/move public yet, but Derek has already mentioned the new much smaller office location I believe.

Good luck to everyone affected if you're reading.

Dear HMRC,

We apologise for not filing our accounts but you see we are nearly out of money. We spent it all on mansions, coffee machines and 10 hours of badly written cut scenes for the chairman's wannabe actress wife and we don't want the nerds who paid for it to find out because some of them have fur suits and replica Japanese swords so we fear for our lives. Instead please find enclosed the following in lieu of payment:

He's not a creative visionary. There isn't anyone that I know in the industry that regards him as such. The disinformation comes from the usual Wing Commander hyperbole.

He is as creative as all of us gamedev artistes are. And the only game that he has ever done and which earned him that "creative visionary" tag, is Wing Commander. If you ignore the movie that is.

True. For reference, I think 'creative genius' is a load of bullshit. It is incredibly, agonizingly rare for a single person to be a genius on that level. Either they had circumstances limiting them which forced them to improvise or work around them or one hell of a creative team to help. There are always people around. This is especially true in team based arenas. You can have literary and music geniuses because they are a largely solo creative endeavor, but trying to claim it in a team oriented environment just makes you an rear end in a top hat.

A reminder that failing to file accounts is a criminal offence.

Karl and the rest of the faithful, what's your opinion on Foundry 42 breaking the law and having to spend backer money on fines because they cannot or do not want to follow simple laws? Does this make you think they have something to hide re finances or is it simply incompetence and/or laziness?

They'll just make up some magical bullshit that they're too busy or some other stupid loving poo poo. They're defending a company that has missed every single deadline without fail and offered up nothing in response. And the poo poo they have offered up has been horribly broken or is constantly being re-worked.

Its not a bill, they need to disclose their account finances to stay compliant in the UK. Problem is that CIG probably has no idea what to do in this regard because they probably weren't keeping tabs properly of their accounts during the filling time and revealing the current accounts might be something extremely stupid.

Yeah payment ain't the issue, it's what it might reveal about the state of their finances.

Even if there's nothing wrong and they have nothing to hide it's still funny that a company which raked in 90m+ can't get their act together on something so basic. They're going to waste several spaceship jpegs worth of dumb nerd money on fines. Perhaps it was a choice between new coffee machine for when Crobert visits the UK or paying an accountant.
