Levine: Game industry 'star-struck' by Hollywood

You wouldn't blame Ken Levine for having a chip on his shoulder when it comes to Hollywood.

So, when Levine was offered an opportunity to make a game with, in his words, "a very...

Recently laid-off devs rant about being recently laid off

I think we can all agree that, aside from being hit by a speeding train or dropping a hot meal you've been cooking for hours, being fired from your job is like, the worst thing that can happen to you.

Spore developer rants on Wii

Chris Hecker didn't pull any punches at GDC's "Game Publisher's Rant" session. The Maxis developer began his "Fear of a Wii Planet" diatribe by declaring, "The Wii is a piece of sh*t." He went on to describe the console as being vastly underpowered, citing low graphical standards and an inability to...
