Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The last few blog posts have been people venting about how pissed off they are about what happen. And while I can empathize with them up to a certain degree, at the end of the day they were playing with someone else's toys, and they knew that. I can't imagine that it didn't cross their mind at some point that there would be a good possibility they would end up being shut down.
And this also makes me wonder why they didn't just use their own ideas. I mean, even if they wanted to go the noir, hard boiled style of max payne they could have, but why adhere to the game's character and storyline?
Same can be said for the oodles and oodles of fan fiction out there. I'll admit that I did my own fan fic way back in my young years, but that didn't last long, and soon I moved on to trying to create my own worlds and characters. So in that sense, fan fiction helps. But at the same time, there's other people that will just stick to fan fiction, and end up never moving on. So even if it's good fan fic(like The Shocker fan fiction), you end up wondering what they could do with their own characters. THoughts?
