I have my own theory on why he knows so much about Gizmondo.

One of the founders of TIGER (Gizmondo) was from Jacksonville, FL. DS is in FL.

There's still $500mil missing in that whole scam and he claims he has $200mil in the bank.

Where was Derek in 2005/2006?

Derek sounds a lot like Dietrich, don't you think?

Maybe I should write a twitlonger on the topic before he posts his blog.

the inventor of the format says it's jif but all that means is that the guy doesn't understand the pronunciation rules of modern english. Name it dot jiff if you want it to be jiffy.



Aegis is mispronounced relative to the original (ee-jis) because we've lost the ᴁ ligature and had two major pronunciation shifts of common usage since the word was first transliterated from greek.

aegis had a long e like the ae in archaeology
but since then ae became a short a like in aesthetics or a long a like in aeronautics

These days an unfamiliar word with an ᴁ will often be pronounced as spelled, with a long a, and being "correct" isn't a help when people think you're dumb for saying eejis.

Im watching this video of Croberts under the concord and it just makes me want to cry; like he seems to genuinly want this poo poo to go but it just seems so ambitious. LIke sure he can do it all, and check the boxes for the funding levels; but make it actually all really work together and be fun? um...

I mean jesus loving christ; the mocap and all that is nice but that isn't a game.

Edit: Chris Roberts reminds me of Jeffrey Skilling. interestingly enough.

Can anyone list the the features the cultists have wanted in the game but someone in an official capacity replied that wouldn't be possible? I'm not talking about the really ridiculous poo poo like trucking dead space sex slaves that was ignored, I want to know when at any point someone at CIG replied with "no, we can't do that" as opposed to "that's a great idea, we'll implement that".

Let me find a link, but the SC community did want prostitute AI and Developer body scans for NPC models in the game.

Yeah, I know the player community is nuts, but I'm more interested in if there's anything the devs said " nope" to or if they just green-lit everything they thought would make them money (no matter how impractical) and ignored everything they couldn't do.

ETA: I just want a feel for how much they fed the "all things to all gamers" mania.

No only people getting angry in the live stream. They were really pissed off that we didn't sing the praises of CRoberts and catch his load in our mouths. They are desperately hoping there's no issue and they don't want an audit carried out in case everything falls apart. It's irrational.

Dear CIG staffer assigned to reading this thread,

Since your recent event to talk about your game failed to contain any gameplay or discussion of that gameplay I want to help.

For an example of how to host a convention and give actual information about your game and changes coming to it, please refer to this clip from CCP's EVE Vegas: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8K9b7CEWOE

Hope this helps.
