You’ve heard of Zynga, haven’t you? You know how they like to… let’s say repurpose games and make their money without really having to make a whole new game from scratch? Well, there’s an internal memo that outright says that’s what they do. If you don’t feel like reading the whole thing I’ll paraphrase: It’s not who did it first. It’s who made it best.
Congratulations On Your New Lawsuit!
I suspect Pfizer is going to be taken to court a few times. Why? Because some lots of their birth control pills were packaged incorrectly and could prove ineffective in preventing pregnancy. Whoops!
It Was A Long Fight
The founders of The Pirate Bay have been sentenced to prison terms. They'll also be paying $6.8 million in damages. It's not all bad. They'll be going to a Swedish prison if they even end up having to serve their sentences. I imagine this whole thing would go down a bit differently in America.
Time To Mod Some Magic
The Skyrim Creation Kit is almost here and it's looking pretty good. Team that with Skyrim Workshop on Steam and it all seems like a good dream. If you've ever had to deal with updating mods for a game you know just how much of a pain that can be. Skyrim Workshop is going to solve that problem by automatically updating your mods if needed.
Well, At Least He Tried
What's the fastest way to piss off a fan base? Release something that at best has minor inconsistencies with canon. Nobody knows this more than William C. Dietz, author of Mass Effect: Deception. He made so many mistakes that fans took it upon themselves to start a Google Doc to log all of his errors. I'm torn. On one hand I want to shrug and say, “Who cares?” On the other hand, I'm wondering if he was just given a few sheets of paper with bulletin points about characters and settings. Ha Ha, research!
Well, that's Hump Day. I'll be signing off now. Really, I mean it. I know you hate to see me go, but you can always follow me on Twitter @kelknaughty.
