EA's LA studio under fire
Thank to Rudedog for pointing out this story to us from gamasutra.
Read this very carefully. The comments in the article appear to all come from EA insiders (programmers...etc.). What they say is a stinging indictment of the management practices at EA's LA studio. Though the article concerns C&C, it could literally have been written with MoH in mind. Have a read:http://www.gamasutra.com/php-bin/news_index.php?story=20462
My fave quote:
This whole thread epitomizes the problem with the game industry. Classless, juvenile behavior pervades all aspects of development.
Grow up, all of you. Managing teams is hard, projects are risky, things get canceled. To call people out by name on this forum is immature, unproductive and probably slanderous.
Vent all you want on this "professional" site. Then go back to your hamster wheels and churn out another derivative franchise / copycat title. You certainly aren't learning much from your failures.
The part I love is that it's followed by this one:
^^^ thank you, Mr. Middle Manager. Go back to having your head up your ass day after day.
....ahhh. I'll be using that one at work tomorrow.
