Request doesnt sound like lawsuit to me. I was promised a law suit. When are you going to sue CIG?

I've said before they really don't like daily funding falling below 20k a day, they'll be considering a free flight week or something this Friday to boost the figures. Bit tricky for them, if they don't do anything daily totals could fall below 20k next week, can't give really give advance notice of a ship sale as I think November sale starts on 19th.

It doesn't look like there is a story. My understanding of it is that an apparently legitimate company (Warthog) which several CIG execs worked at was bought out by Gizmondo; the owners of Gizmondo were later sent to prison. There's no reason given to suppose that being an employee of Warthog made one privy to the Gizmondo bosses schemes and Derek's blog doesn't go so far as to suggest that. It's basically How Far Can I Go Without Defaming Anybody: The Blog.

Also, we weren't promised a mere recap blog. Don't try to manage our expectations!

Every time I see buggy gifs I'm reminded of that 3D Mark 2001 truck demo game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2qoFiXxCck

In fact everything looks like a failed 3D Mark test run run on hardware that is glitching out enough that physics calcs are failing and things fall through.
I recall Cryengine games could be really interesting with it's physics...
