Whoever came up with that metaphor for team management deserves a trophy. Or a pizza. Or a pizza trophy.

Not that there aren't perks to being a team leader, of course; it's great seeing all the pieces of the puzzle fit together and it's fun to order people around sometimes. The downside is that you never get any peace. Especially if, say, you were also the person on the team responsible for working out how the mod tools worked, and making the tech demo.

I don't begrudge my team asking me questions, don't get me wrong. This is my job on the team, to fix problems they have. (And to export tricky things into the CryEngine, like weapons.) It's just a lot of pressure, and I'm not that brilliant at responding to pressure. I'm learning though, and the team is already gelled and tearing ahead on the project.

Hopefully we'll get the ModDB page up soon to show you all.

@JimSterling Digital Homicide is like a baker selling someone else's cake mix and then accusing others for using the same basic materials.

@How2Wrestling Modern-day Hulk Hogan, who (mostly) never gives up. Splits audience like Marmite. WWE pretends he's not selfish #How2JohnCena

@shamethedawg I don't know, but I do know the lime guy must be really envious right now

@Applemask I just read a book about BA trying to kill Virgin Airlines, and Thames broadcast the story first. No wonder Thatcher killed them.

@AngryJoeShow fathers day is for family, there should be no need to apologise! :)

@Applemask yeah, I agree with that. But sadly it's all about how bad the story is, not its relative importance.

Jun 20 2015, 10:45am

@Applemask but that's what news is. Unremitting horrors all the way down. Unless it's ITN, then it's badly told w/ a fluff story at the end
