I think this is a form of satisficing - you don 't go for the optimal solution, you go for the acceptable solution. Another area this tends to work in is consumer goods - low cost beats quality. USB is everywhere because Thunderbolt is a lot more expensive. Horribly mangled ...

I hope he asked for a salary of ohhhhh... 2B.

I think as long as you have EA execs saying things like http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2014/02/11/ea-defends-bf-4-simcity-launch-efforts-discusses-future/ they are going to have an image problem. r n r nIt 's going to take a while of no BF4s and no SimCity-s till the jokes stop. It 's all self inflicted. It took about a ...

CEO Zacconi is of course out there working hard on positive spin: r n r nhttp://recode.net/2014/03/26/ceo-riccardo-zacconi-on-why-kings-ipo-isnt-sour-candy/ r n r nWho doesn 't enjoy a nice game of Damage Control Saga

I think it 's mostly a Death of a Dream thing. r n r nFor various reasons people were really fired up about the Rift. This was going to change things, man Plucky guy Kickstarts his dream and offers us possibly the best new gaming experience in a long long ...

The NYT had this today: 'According to a person involved in the deal who was not allowed to speak publicly because he was not authorized by either company, Facebook eventually plans to redesign the Oculus hardware and rebrand it with a Facebook interface and logo.

Sorry for the double post, but on further contemplation why IS this so visceral I think the strength of the reactions comes from pairing something that makes most people who use it really happy Rift with something that makes its users miserable Facebook and the suspicion that the end goal, ...

I 've been given at least 3 pieces of advice: r n r n1 You need a good plot to tie everything together. r n2 Plot doesn 't matter, just characters. r n3 Characters don 't matter either, just the gameplay. r n r nSuspect it depends on your game ...

It also really helps if your game is, at least, still fun. Or at least compelling, like Papers Please. If you put something preachy on top of a bad game then you 're actively subverting your message and perhaps even sending the opposite one. r n r nFreedom Cry was ...

Banished seems to be doing quite well, so hopefully there is demand for this. r n r nJust avoid being another Cities XL or Cities in Motion. A clear, consistent vision and mechanics seems to be key. r n
