Quote of the Day: Basements

“Advice To Game Developers

Please perfect your basic artwork assets, models, and animations before releasing anything to the public. It’s a huge turn-off to see placeholder models and animations that make your game look like a high school project. It’s literally the first thing I evaluate to determine if your development effort is serious business or you’re just a bunch of kids messing around in somebody’s basement.”

Quote of the Day: Get over it

“Even the disgusting PVE carebear servers [for H1Z1] will be ready day 1. I’m not happy about that but people tell me I need to get over it.”

~ SOE President John Smedley on Twitter

Hey Smed?  Get over it; PvE carebears pay your salary.  Or quit your job at SOE and go work for CCP, as that’s obviously where your heart lies.

(Yeah, he might have been very tongue-in-cheek here — which I am not sure of — but it wasn’t a smart thing to say in any case.)

Quote of the Day: Minion me

“The minion/follower system of Rift and World of Warcraft is liked by many. What if a game would allow you to give these tasks to friends and guildmates instead of NPCs/trading cards? The idea started small, but the more i think about it, the more possibilities come to mind.”

~ Party Business

Love this idea!  Make it happen, MMO industry!
