Game Buzz | Episode 8 - Back to Los Santos

All of the juicy news came in late this week. First there was the Game Informer GTA V reveal, which we discuss extensively. The Silicon Knights' lawsuit against Epic finally received a ruling, and it backfired upon Denis Dyack spectacularly. We recorded and uploaded just before the reports came in about the final, doubled fee levelled at SK, but you can read all about that here.

Elsewhere, we touch upon Medal of Honor: Warfighter's continuing bad press, and take a peek at Braben's Elite: Dangerous, and ask if it can stand up to the impressive pitch from Chris Roberts and Star Citizen, and if it even needs to.

Game Buzz: Episode 8 - Back to Los Santos. Recorded November 9th, 2012

It's worth noting that we recorded this before I had time to fully pore through the Silicon Knights vs Epic Games counter-suit documents. So... this happened.

We'd have likely had a few VERY more choice words for Dyack, if not a comparison between Silicon Knights and Team Rocket. Bad stuff keeps happening to them, but their management brought it on themselves.

That so many developers lost their jobs and had their reputations tarnished because of these unscrupulous management decisions is nothing short of disgusting IMO.
