Oh shit! Is this really going to be some sort of major lockdown on footage of games? That has some pretty massive implications on a lot of people.

I heard something earlier that certain sites had the rights for Show Forza 5 footage while others had it for Ryse.

Holy shit. Many people are speculating that the "bad news" has to do with game company's no longer allowing websites to use game footage in their coverage due to monetization issues. If that is the case, that also has massive implications for Giant Bomb.

Wouldnt that also fuck youtube and twitch? Why bother to allow twtich streaming if you are not gonna allow money off it some where down the road?

We will have to see. Traditionally layoffs happen on Friday where people can often be caught by surprise. Failing that it might not be his job but another well known company is being shuttered which still has me worried since, like mentioned before, a new console launch is almost here and that always picks up the excitement.

Edit: Reading the two Tweets together has me more worried about Sessler's position not less. :/

If he gets fired I am 90% sure someone else will grab him.

Gonna play DND at a friends then try to finish Doom 3 BFG

I actually recently finished Doom 3 for the third time ever, though not because it's October. I just felt like playing it again.

I've never really been big into horror things, though. "Space-horror", i.e. everything influenced by Alien, is the exception. Otherwise I tend to shy away from anything horror.

Do the versions of DOom and Doom 2 have achievements? I recally brad saying one of them gave marine armour for avatars.

The Steam version has achievements for Doom 1 and 2. If I'm not mistaken, the Xbox version of the BFG edition includes the XBLA versions of Doom 1 and 2, so I think you'll get an achievements list for each Doom game, with Doom 3 getting a full 1000 and one and 2 getting 200 each. Again, I think.

EDIT: And I have no clue about the PS3 version.

I must have that armour!
