United Mining Exploration Commission: A group of friends playing JumpGate-- "a MMORPG that launched smoothly, breaks from fantasy character setting, emphasizes PvP, and is the first persistent world space simulator that nobody talks about." ~Scorch

Yeah, actually I was laid off. Jumpgate performed pretty poorly in the marketplace, and for a small company that isn't a good thing. :smile:

I was planning on staying in the game industry, and I recieved some nice offers, but none in Colorado. Given that, I decided I would return to the "real world" for a while until I can get my planned project off the ground (that should be at least a year or so). Of course, I failed to take into account that my previous profession is now out of work here in Co9lorado, so I'm still looking for something.

In the meantime, I wanted to see a site that would be kind of like slashdot for computer games. Couldn't find one, so I decided to build it for myself.

P.S. I've recently declassified this blurb by iceman on his opinion of the high and mighty Gbob:
Short and sweet opinion

(that was way back in june 2001, btw)

Jeezuz! Gbobs sure keeping a close eye on JG
between the time i first checked his site out and now, he's posted two articles on 3DO/ND split. Seems he's pimping the "First time dev team splits cleanly from publisher" spin.

Probability the dev team still communicate with Gbob is 85%
Probability Gbob will trash the game if elves are coded in is 99%

Editorial on ND's focus on player feedback to shape patch41
(not to mention a rather well documented comment about ND acknowledging the Octavian civil war brewing)
    The comment section even has a guest appearance by SirBruce. lol.
