Abomb for monly oums death(lead animator of Red Vs Blue) he was a inspiration for me to work harder and never give up i cried through my lvl 58 to 60 grind in tera online and will miss him dearly. Even if i only met him for 10 mins he was a idol in my life and helped me become who i am to day.
(I wonder what going to happen to them at SOE employee?)
1. fire the worked?
2. move to the new company?
3. find new people for their new business?
(this what make me wonder going on in the background.)
Yes for a first time were looking at company with hands free to make games that are meant to be played not to be sold. So i'm pretty excited too see if their finally going to make games that we can log in too for fun not like going to second work (No more green eyed Big brother to make you do cash grabs).
And A-Bomb too capcom for their fighting game Rise of incarnates, for using pier too pier system which is horrible for many reasons especially for pvp game. Hope its only for early access and will be fixed before launch
I don't think it hurts Sony at all. I think its telling about SOE's financial and overall status if a company like Sony let it go. I don't really have high hopes for this Daybreak company honestly. If profit was on the horizon without giving an overall negative outlook on Sony then why did Sony sell it off? Hopefully Smedley just wanted to break from the shackles of Sony and wants to make better games and treat his customers better. My opinion of Smedley doesn't make me think that is likely though. Here is to hope I guess.
Da Bomb to Chris Roberts and his company for their constant connection to their players and always providing seas of information to us. Also his presentation at DICE was very nice sending the message that all companies should embrace their communities and approach them as the single most important part of game development. Great approach.
