Most of my thoughts have already been mentioned, but one real head scratcher was the idea that the Frostbite decision was the automatically the best decision at the time. “You can’t go back and say that was a bad choice when they did it”. If there is one thing that is true about human nature, it’s that we consistently make bad decisions. It’s entirely possible that it was a bad decision at the time. People (and companies) make short sighted decisions all the time. It may have been good at the time, but it also may have been a bad decision at the time.

In addition, we actually know they made further bad decisions. The decision to ignore input from the Old Republic devs who had experience with persistent multiplayer worlds. The repeated decision to hit the snooze button on defining the project. In any project, lack of clarity is a killer. And not defining it is a decision. I’m a developer on a much smaller scale, but even there, lack of clarity increases time and costs to all parties involved.

Not a question, but I’m going to toot my own horn in regards to today’s Iron Man VR news. From the comments in cagcast 573:

It'll never happen but the immersion level of an Iron Man VR game would be insane. You are already putting on a helmet, so it'd be like putting on the Iron Man helment. And you could have the floating HUD and Friday or Jarvis in your ear.

I think Arrow being gone will just make room for the Batwoman show. CW said they wanted a limit on the number of superhero shows, and they are currently over that.

I hated Titans. They never did a single thing that could be construed as heroic. The need to fix that ASAP in season 2.

The new sonic looks kinda creepy, in a “he looks like he should be wearing pants” kind of way.

Lastly, I have a CheapyD movie crying challenge: A Star is Born
