    Have you ever seen them in the same place at the same time?

  • And now that we know the last employee on the "New Readers" page, will it be decoded?

    Mr. Toots' entry: "He is a real rabbit. I don't know what to tell you; I was outvoted."

  • Hate to be pedantic but ... Lagomorpha. Magic testing bunny is a good mascot though.

    Is this the first Tale From The Trenches to actually identify the company and game it's talking about?

    And miles to go before I sleep.

    I think so, except for the one where he was led to an office that was completely barren which was identified as FASA I think.

    Nah, Bun Bun has grey markings, not brown. Also both ears are grey and why am I typing this?
    Nobody cares about this. I'm nerding out over a web comic rabbit. What the hell is wrong with me?

    I thought exactly the same thing. (But then, I also just totally don't 'get' the entirety of this series.)

  • Is this somehow Bun Bun from Sluggy Freelance? (http://sluggy.com/)

    Because if it is there is going to be trouble in the trenches...

  • Kinda surprised the rabbit doesn't have a carrot nose.

    Forcing anyone/thing to do testing would be cruel and unusual punishment

    I am not criticising your work, I am testing it!
  • I have been in one of those meetings, where we are all gathered in the wherehouse and told our services are no longer needed. I am no so sure i would be cheering for the people that got keep their jobs because that will be just a couple of extra weeks of agony for them.

    Legend has it EA once did this with a studio they acquired, only they gathered them in the parking lot. I wonder if at that point, it isn't actually a courtesy to can them so close to their vehicles.

    Out there, if they get angry and trash things, it's only their own vehicles.

    Someone probably got a tidy little bonus for minimizing the risk of laying off that many people simultaneously.

    Sticks on

  • There was a blog from a former Realtime Worlds employee detailing some of the early trouble and the completely dysfunctional culture at Realtime Worlds which I read a while back. It was fascinating stuff.

    Ah, still have the link. http://lukehalliwell.wordpress.com/2010/09/15/where-realtime-worlds-went-wrong/

    Interesting read; that Dave was a real ass. I didn't follow the story too closely when it first came out as I didn't have any interest in the game, but sounds like a good team got wrecked by success.

  • I will never cease to be amazed how a company could have had as much money as APB and produced as little content as APB had

    It's like they started and stopped with the decal system
