Why shouldn 't it A patent troll has to run up against an obstacle too large for it to intimidate, such as a Nintendo or EA, for it to be shut down. Smaller outfits don 't have the resources to defend themselves from frivolous lawsuits. Anyone remember the Edge trademark ...

As a 1st generation PONG - Atari 2600 - Atari 800 gamer, I 'm not buying the basic sales pitch. I 've replayed various games on emulators. Some hold up, others don 't. Whether I like them NOW, as an aging man, has nothing to do with whether I liked ...

I have feelings bordering on learned helplessness when trying to identify games I might want to play. I find many games are not worth playing. I tend to attribute this to bad game designers who are going up predictable learning curves and never surmounting recurrent problems. I 've seen the ...

I tried doing some organizing in the IGDA Game Design and Indie SIGs in 2011. Got as far as getting these groups to vote on Constitutions for these 2 SIGs. Not long after, pretty much got rid out of town on a rail by some members higher up the IGDA ...

Indeed, it would be quite odd to have a building with no natural entrances, since there 'd be no way for anyone else to get in or out. Unless it 's a tomb. Not only would entrances be sealed, they 'd also be hidden. In real life, most of the ...

Yeah, it 's much better. Your 1st go at it, was shutting someone down with a one-liner. Which doesn 't help them or anyone listening, to understand much of anything. THe endgame is hyper-partisan politics and people talking past each other. r n r nSo, thanks for actually unpacking all ...

It would seem that Valve has utterly failed to create this platform diversity leverage ala Apple / Google search / Android. If Microsoft made a Steam Machine killing move tomorrow, not enough people actually have Steam Machines for most people to care. It 's not worth money. At this point ...

Why do some people feel that profanity lends authenticity to their point of view Is it a way of saying, I can be unconstrained / you can 't control my speech I haven 't been to Gamasutra in awhile. I 'm not impressed that the front page has a Community ...

The idea of getting lost and not seeing the path to a desired end goal is definitely something I can relate to. It has kept me, for instance, from writing a novel, because I can 't see what the novel would be. Some people have a driving force that spurs ...

I don 't want this crap funded. We 've had plenty of mass shootings since Sandy Hook that have proven there 's no special bugaboo driving the behavior. Whether the bugaboo is choice of weapon or ideology.
