As a result of Shamus’ GRAND MOVING ADVENTUREâ„¢, he was unavailable for… basically everything this weekend. As a result of this, and an intense market research study that cost nearly as much as Rutskarn’s yearly salary (!), we’ve decided to bring in a replacement for Shamus with someone that we estimate will be significantly more successful in virtually every way. So much so that we’ve pretty much just decided to permanently replace Shamus altogether, or at least until such time as he finishes moving his things and returns to smack me upside the head.
The Best of 2016
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2016.
In Defense of Crunch
Crunch-mode game development isn't good, but sometimes it happens for good reasons.
A Star is Born
Remember the superhero MMO from 2009? Neither does anyone else. It was dumb. So dumb I was compelled to write this.
Steam Summer Blues
