    Yeah, that mod has their head firmly lodged up their own ass. The one thing (some) people seemed to like about Andromeda was the combat. Which is in no way an argument for hiring one of the writers.

    Wow. They locked that thread fast.

    There's other threads on there about the personnel changes, recent firings - no surprise, those are locked, too.

    Can't keep this contained, Paradox, Hardsuit's new and ex-employees are outflanking you with their tweets! (Or in Mitsoda's case, just talking to the press.)

    When feet are too small to fit a real writer shoes, the new lead writer having a big mouth does not make up for it... it makes her being hired even worse for the company.

    I hate Twitter but even worse I hate the amount of self-selling some developers do with no real work in their bios (or good work) is very sad

    It's only natural to discuss the only things shown to the absence of all else. So when they Streisand Effect this shitshow using lame reasons they only create more backlash. It's like a thermal runaway of incompetence.

    As we all know, only other developers / metoo clout monkeys can slander developers!

    Can't edit original post, but Infinitron corrected me, I should have said "Mitsoda's ex-wife." Guess Bloodlines development ruined more than just the game itself.

    Make the Codex Great Again! RPG Wokedex Strap Yourselves In
    Last I heard of Brian and Annie being "together" on anything was the release of Panic! at Multiverse High (2016). Was there any evidence of their continued relationship after that? I'm sure Roguey can correct me on this but it feels like that was about the time they split up.

    They were still together when Bloodlines 2 was announced. The divorce happened in 2019.

    After watching Mitsoda and Ellison being all chummy in Vampire videos, I imagine the continued relationship with Annie was probably on the rocks after that.

    Even if nothing was going on (although Mitsoda has a track record against resisting inter-office romances, apparently, which I found out here), it must have sucked for his wife to see another female writer working with her husband and galavanting around in the media while she was basically out of a job (well, until ArenaNet, I guess).

    At least Annie didn't try to cancel Mitsoda (yet), so that's something.

    They have shut down a lot of topics

    The "Eber" moderator is also full of himself and makes bad points

    It will keep getting bumped until it gets so bad the Bloodlines 2 devs start leaving severed horse heads in the bed of every fan of the original game

    A WoD Battle Royale game could work. A Marauder is warping reality just by existing, turning the world into not-Fortnite. Prepare for werewolves parachuting in.

    It seems a likely explanation given the way she acted around him, his previous work-place behavior, the very quick dissolution of his marriage, and Annie unfollowing her on twitter after previous interactions (the last one being in June 2019), but it hasn't actually been confirmed.
