Yeah that's the impression I got too! I'm glad he's doing okay anyway!adamazing wrote:Not really... Everyone was leaving the company because "things aren't that great." And yeah, Shawn left because he was a born again Jehovah's Witness. He didn't to have anything in his life with violence, magic, etc. He moved to NY, and started a lot of charity work. I was pretty amazed and surprised. He left his dream job! But hey, if he believes in and loves something that much, I can't blame him. But... I knew he wouldn't last though. He loves Monster Hunter and Fable too much... hahaha. He bought a Wii U and a 360 again recently, so he can play them.
As for Unity, there's just way too much hate and "fanboy stuff" going on there now. It started off being a fun place, but there's just too much "internet" there... ESPECIALLY after Mega Man Legends 3 was cancelled. They might as well have changed the website URL to "www.vitriol.com." It was really bad. And of course, with Lost Planet 3, that made a lot of people leave/not care, too.
That's kind of why I left, it became really polarised there!
Sai and myself used to joke that they swapped the dev team with Dead Space. They both just ended up looking like each other![NG] brandon wrote:I'm not really sure what the deal was with lost planet 3. people didn't like it, I gather............?
They also announced E.X. Troopers for the DS around the same time. I think that added even more confused and helped burnt out the audiences interest.
