Hello! I wrote a book called Press Reset: Ruin and Recovery in the Video Game Industry and it’s out TODAY!!! It’s about what happens to people when video game companies shut down. I’m very proud of it and I think you’ll really like it. grandcentralpublishing.com/t…

Dean Takahashi literally just wrote "Saudi Arabia tortures and executes its citizens, discriminates against women, and silences dissent by any means necessary, but you gotta admit, they understand video games."

I'm sure there will be good discussions on why Stadia failed — and if you worked there and would like to share your story, please do reach out — but I think it's a familiar story: veteran video game executives taking cool new tech and treating it like a console launch from 1996

I reported this last year at Bloomberg but the amount of money Google spent to get games on Stadia is so shocking that I still can hardly believe it, even after corroborating with multiple sources. Tens of millions of dollars PER GAME for Red Dead 2, Assassin's Creed, etc

I don't know how I missed this last year, but it just made me laugh out loud for a solid 30 seconds, maybe even a minute nytimes.com/2021/04/13/scien…

Has there ever, in the history of humankind, been this much time, money, and effort poured into something that nobody actually wants?

Can't believe dunkey started a video game publisher with no experience instead of taking the normal approach: getting a Harvard MBA, working at McKinsey for five years, and then failing upward between C-suites for the rest of your life

I don't really have a strong opinion on this whole thing and who knows if it'll be a disaster or what, but it's hilarious to see people saying "he has no experience making games!!!" like wait until you hear about who's run most video game publishers for the last 40 years

This claim is demonstrably false (the director of AC Origins said they'd started working on the game a year earlier, after Black Flag) but it's always telling when people want to blame journalists for their industry's problems... sort of like that time I delayed No Man's Sky

JRPG fans — If you, like me, loved Trails in the Sky but thought the Cold Steel saga was a slog, you will really dig Trails from Zero, which comes out next week. I've been playing on Switch every night and enjoying the heck out of it

I've been playing an early copy of Return to Monkey Island (about ~8 hours in) and it's brilliant so far — all the silly jokes and clever puzzles you'd expect in a new Monkey Island game from Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman. And despite the art "controversy" it looks gorgeous

To those who asked: There are several reasons this is a nightmare for Rockstar. One is that it'll disrupt work for a while. Another is that it may lead management to limit work-from-home flexibility. The repercussions of this leak might not be clear for quite a while
