And for you guys, the most I have to show right now is probably this pic: http://twitpic.com/541rmf I've worked on too many projects over the last year with inconsistent release schedules so I'm not revealing much until this game is SHIPPED

What's interesting, I think, is choosing a system and refining it. I'm definitely interested in exploring the deeper aspects of a system which reveal multiple layers. In fact, I think when you focus on solving a small set of problems, you end up revealing more elegant solutions to even deeper ...

I have no problem with ...

I have no problem with a system that's built to protect against inflation. It still requires effort on the part of the player to win those points. It's not reward without effort. You're right, I can't say achievements are inherently bad, and I never did, everything is shades of grey. ...

I did a five-year animation degree at a university because I had no desire to go to just a trade school, I wanted more to college. If you're at a point where you just want to get it done, the gain of a paid education is what Kimberly said: it ...
