    First off, thanks for the shout out Corey, that was awesome. And fuck da critics!

    Irrational might (I stress might) not have needed to lay off a bunch of people nor possibly lost money if they hadn’t wasted time and resources to try to create a multiplayer component that they eventually scrapped. Bio 2 had multi, yes, but that game was not developed by Irrational, and they had like 2 or 3 different 2K teams from around the world who all together developed Bio 2. I blame Levin for not realizing sooner that Infinite did not need multi. It’s a single player experience, and that’s all we need it to be. Bio 2’s multi didn’t last long, why try to add it to Infinite? And fuck Levin for just telling the staff, “welp, I’m done. Fuck you guys, find a new job.” That’s basically what he did, and this takes me to another thought on all this.

    The Irrational developed Shock games got better and better. Why? They had core teams of developers that were all on the same page. They knew the vision, they all new what they needed to do to make the games work, they had synergy. It’s so hard to find that when it comes to developers. The best games tend to come from dev teams who have been working together for a long time. To split up such a group with so much AAA game potential and know how is a crying shame. The best case scenario would be another publish to hire the entire team together under a new banner. Take-Two were Irrational’s publisher, so they could easily rehire these developers and create a new studio. If not Take-Two, Sony could hire them. This is a great opportunity for a publisher to get a great team under their roof. I just hope to god it isn’t EA or Activision.

    Hey, two shout outs! Alright! I think my friend Wicked and I are the only two NSFW Crew members doing anything lol. I’ll keep the flame lit for you guys for when you do wanna jump in and just fuck around. It works as a little chat lobby too if you got cool people to talk to. I know I emailed you some time back Corey about doing up some different logos. I kind of want to do that, but at the same time I don’t have a drive to do it. Like I feel as though I would only be making them for myself, and I’m fine with the current logo I made up. If things change at some point and more crew members play, I might take some time to work on some new logos. If not, well I still love the crew. Need to get DCUO when I get my PS4 here in a couple days and join that NSFW clan.

    Lastly, I think I’ll listen to the MK podcast while watching the movie. That might be cool.

    @Noah- I always check my league list when I log on, and all my characters are leagued including those I made last week so I never miss anybody for a group. If you decide you like Warframe after trying it for free as well I at least log on every day for the bonus goods. Our Artist Spotlight contest entrant Jester is the first member besides me as the founder, so I’d be happy to see you there.

    Podcast WOOP! I very much look forward to the Mortal Kombat commentary. Your story was too damn funny. Suddenly I’m reminded of John Waters saying he felt awkward doing a commentary and said “It should be the editor with comments like ‘He couldn’t cut his way out of a paper bag!'”

    You’re spot-on about the independent team being the new key to success. Digital Extremes, the developer of Warframe, is totally independent and their free-to-play must be making money hand over fist. I know i’ve payed over $60 buying Platinum to play the game my way. Screw this “I want to support the game,” that’s a by-product, lol. I want my damn weapons that interest me TODAY.

    Ah, sweet, sweet Vivka… What a babe. And I have to agree, the ladies that went all-out for a Samus armor are pretty mind-blowing. I love them to bits. As for the pictures process, I had no idea you had to go through so much work, lol. Well, call it a labor of love. And indeed, I love you too, dude. “No homo!”
