Ew, not very good signs in those emails. It's still a shame that, with such a new narrative experience, they were pulled down. I'm astounded a company can work on a single game for years without releasing any other game or being pulled up by any sort of sales.

Makes me wonder how studios live at all. The new Kingdom of Amalur dev studio released their game, then filed for bankruptcy months following.

Studios are usually bankrolled by their games' publisher (if the game doesn't have a publisher then the studio's as good as dead, unless they can get their game done quickly or all their employees don't mind not being paid). I don't have any first hand industry experience yet, but I've been told that the model is based on milestones (the publisher sets them and keeps funding them as long as they're met, often with bonuses for reaching them early).

It works pretty much the same way as other creative industries (the game's industry's best thought of as a creative/entertainment industry with a technological element, as far as structure goes).

I don't really like swimming. Sometimes I want to, so if I do get in a pool, I'm only entertained for about ten minutes.
...I don't even have any bathing suits that aren't like 3 years old. More, probably. Not like I've grown recently anyway.

Edit:
Kaori- Yeah, the thread's been dead. :|

Guys...I think she's going back to him.
You know who I'm talking about.


I wash my hands of both of them. They were both really shitty friends anyway.

Moral of the story:
People are stupid.


I really have been SO lazy for the past.....two weeks? More like week and a half I guess. I have a TON of sewing to get to but I just don't wanna get up! Blankets are comfy places. Yes, blankets are places.

If her parents let him back in the house, they're fucking crazier than he is.

Oh, God, I know! I actually have no idea where he's living right now.
By the way, his second secret account was found today. It has lots of porn and pictures of attractive Hispanic women...and me, in all my dorkiness. Me laughing in front of a computer. Me with no makeup and a striped sweater.
It's creepy.

But no. She believes his story that his medication made him do it and that he wasn't attracted to me or these other girls in the least. Or that he might have made it all up for her to find because she's treated him poorly. So essentially he'd have made up this shit about being attracted to me specifically (because we're friends and she compares herself to me a lot) to make her feel bad, in her estimation.
And this is somehow okay.

That's just fucking ridiculous.


And that second gif made my life so much better just now.
