The Industry Is a Soap Opera

The game industry is a soap opera sometimes. It can be fun to watch, it can be depressing to watch, it can be a lot of other things. Whatever it is, it’s emotional. The latest controversy is with Quest Online and Alganon–David Allen was fired (you might remember a similar episode with Artifact Entertainment and Horizons) and Derek Smart (controversial himself) has replaced him. It’s rather crazy. I’d just go ahead and read Smart’s post if you want to know what’s going on there. The far more depressing controversy recently was with Activision. Rather than comment on it, I’ll just lead you to Broken Toys. Wow, on both counts.

Update: The Saga Continues…

    I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before you’re embroiled in soap opera…..the disappearance of the podcast with Moorgard was pretty suspicious.

    Wow…Derek Smart…there is a name I have not heard in a long, long time. Amazing how some things never change, and even more amazing that he manages to continue to find ways to be in the discussion. Does it mean I’m old if I participated in the PhD Fraud Usenet thread?

  3. Wow…that just keeps going and going and going and going…I needed to put a bookmark in that novel so I can grab something to eat and keep reading.
