Great show as usual.
I wish sine mora was $10 and on steam.
I really wanted to hear why bill hated zynga, bummed that got glossed over. I think they are a pretty shitty company personally but not any worse than EA, activision, take two or any other major publisher. I guess they are impeding more on the indie community more though, especially with their clones.
I do think bill will love the vita when he gets it. No need to rush though. He's always been smart about money.
I love the idea of a couple thousand fat nerds walking around pax going "what is that awful smell!!" and a eddy sellers thinking to herself "can't be me, no one is throwing up."
I need to give Sine Mora another go, I remember being cranky that night so I'm sure that didn't help it any. But it would be cool if it were on steam.
The cloning of other people's work is really the base of my distaste. I remember reading an article about how they based their business model around the copy and pasting of other peoples success. For some reason, that always stuck in my mind and really bothers me. I can easily not contribute to their profits as I can avoid certain gas stations or other corporations. They are no worse than EA or Activision, but its easier for me to ignore them as I find "most" of their products to be rubbish.
And Farmville........which should be enough.
