An interesting note about our Spoiler Warning hosts. Rutskarn has a blog. Mumbles has a blog. Chris has a blog. Heck, even I have a blog. But not Josh. Josh hides in my blog-basement and pops up once a week to drink all my beer.
Speaking of Spoiler Warning, it looks like we’ve got another episode here:
Say, who among you is headed to PAX East this year? Josh and I will be there. I’ll probably be hanging out around The Escapist events. I might end up on a couple of panels like last year, or I might just hang out with my fellow Escapist contributors. Or I might end up at the BioWare booth, trying to goad one of the Mass Effect 2 writers into facing me in a gladiatorial fight to the death. Hard to say right now.
The event is out of three-day passes, but they still have passes for all three single days available. That’s kind of a surprise. Saturday was long sold out by this time last year. In fact, the show itself might have been sold out by February. I can only assume sales are slower this year because the event falls on Easter weekend.

Dear people of the internet: Please stop doing these horrible idiotic things when you talk to each other.
The Opportunity Crunch
No, brutal, soul-sucking, marriage-destroying crunch mode in game development isn't a privilege or an opportunity. It's idiocy.
C++ is a wonderful language for making horrible code.
Best. Plot Twist. Ever.
Few people remember BioWare's Jade Empire, but it had a unique setting and a really well-executed plot twist.
Shamus Plays WOW
