    Management is such an important skill, it sucks that society is so prone to selecting and promoting managers that suck at it

    I feel like this is most jobs. The number of times I've heard people tell me that they went to a school therefor they know everything about teaching.

    I'm sure you've heard lots of people say that they've watched TV shows so writing them is easy.

    Reading the full article, it is such an obvious management fuck up holy shit. Not having a shared database to pull things like shaders from, not enforcing a common language for all meeting despite hiring a bunch of non-polish developers, forcing them to make a demo that didn’t reflect the game at all so months were wasted for a smokescreen, announcing a release date that no one actually thought they could meet and dismissing those concerns, and then having to push the release date back multiple times because of not listening to their developers. If the world was just at all, those managers would be the ones who would be fired over this.

    Case in point they're trying to make me a lead at work and I am fucking TERRIBLE at it. I delegate poorly and don't do well when I'm getting needled with questions and requests from all directions and don't handle stress well.

    See I’ve had bosses and I think I am definitely unqualified to be a boss

    I've been a baby and I know that doesn't qualify me to be a boss baby.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    So it was the same thing BioWare did- a belief they had a special skill that would make everything come together, and ground out their employees to meet that instead of facing reality.



    And now after declining to answer questions for this article, CDPR has decided to selectively weigh in on a couple points. Pretty weak stuff! Not even an attempt to respond to the stuff about crunch!

    I actually don't know what the CDPR ownership situation is like is it like a Gearbox thing where a Pitchfordian figure has extreme latitude and any sort of apalling autoburlesque is feasibly possible at any moment

    the guiding philosophy of all bosses is "cmon. just do it. figure it out. it'll be fine. cmon."

    Watching the most recent Hot Spot and it's Jeff, Vinny and Brad ranking all of the previous Top Tens. (Both the overall top ten as well as the Game of the Year for that year) and going into what they think about their picks now. It was going really good, with three people it was easy enough for a consensus to be reached...

    Until a little over an hour in when Brad decided to stop contributing to the list so he could make his own list. Literally declining to participate in the act of ranking.

    Ha, Jeff just tried to
    Put Mario Maker above Mass Effect 2
    and Brad immediately got back on board with helping rank the list

    You meant Clint?

  • HobnailHobnail Registered User regular
    Ive certainly never considered it before now but the names Cliff and Clint do appear to be utterly interchangeable if I knew someone for decades for my whole life as Clint and they were like "actually it's Cliff" I wouldn't blink

    I once forgot the name of a woman I went on two dates with and a friend made fun of me for it.

    I remember now though.

    This is a wild thing to ask, but does anyone have that tweet that is making fun of David Cage with the guy who made Neir Automata and it goes like

    Cage: Can robots be people?
    Yoko Taro: Can People?
    Cage: What?
    Yoko Taro: can people be people?
    Cage: I do not understand

    how did you do that

    Thanks for dragging that Remo Williams movie out of the depths of my memory.

    I can't think about anything else now.
