“Rockstar Head Ascends to Take-Two Throne”

I just got sent a link to an article called “Rockstar Head Ascends to Take-Two Throne”. Here is more or less what I was thinking as I opened it: Sam Houser got promoted? Nice comeback: This must be related to that expiring contract business. *Reads article* Gary Dale, formerly the Chief Operating Officer of Rockstar […]

Next Generation article on video game credits

There’s a nice article on Next Generation about video game credits and the IGDA standard, which includes a couple of comments from myself. I sound a bit more anti-Rockstar than I really feel. I don’t really lie awake seething with hate or anything. Serves me right for choosing the word ‘outraged’ – it sounded better […]

I kind of find that hard to believe. First of all, GTA has been parodied a billion times already. Second, Rockstar Games generally does […]

More about 4mm Games, Jamie King’s new company

Way back in June I wrote something about how Jamie King, co-founder & former VP of Development of Rockstar Games, started a new company called 4mm Games. It turns out a shady rumor blog linked to me and added a little additional information: We hear… that Jamie King, the not-so recently departed co-founder of Rockstar […]
