I find it hard to imagine Half-Life and Portal translating that well into movies. Maybe Abrams can do it, but I doubt it.

A film adaptation of the adventures of Gordon Freeman would probably be terrible, but the weird background fluff of the Half-Life setting (the Seven Hour War and other assorted G-man/Combine shit) seem right in Abrams' wheelhouse.

Not Warren Spector! Where does he go from here?

Honestly, wherever he wants. He's Warren fucking Spector. He should join Ken Levine at Irrational and get to work on a new Thief.

Yeah, pretty much this. Spector has credits in some of the most loved games* of all time so it's a bit confusing that he sunk so much effort into this Epic Mickey stuff.

*Ultima Underworld, System Shock, Deus Ex, Thief.

He's a huge Disney fan so it's not really confusing at all.

If Arkane Studios hired Spector, he could be working with Harvey Smith again. Just sayin'.

I vote for him hooking up with Steve Gaynor at Hot Scoops, Inc. where he can get crackin' on his "one city block" game. Gone Home 2, if you will.

Make better games, this is how capitalism works we can't have a cry each time a developer that isn't profitable goes down.

Yeah. The best stuff is, without fail, always the most profitable. If you guys need me ill be watching Transformers and listening to Justin Bieber while I enjoy a Big Mac and Coke.

Not gonna stand idly by while someone besmirchs the Big Mac.

On one hand, people losing their jobs is never good. On the other... maybe Warren Spector can make games I'm interested in again.

This exact sentiment went through my mind when I saw the headline.

I'm really getting tired of this progressive bull-shit.

Maybe the US should stop killing millions of civilians in the middle east to set a good example.

No way, bro. Hypocrisy is a constitutional right.

"Mirror's Edge, featuring one of gaming's most memorable protagonists..."

You know! The running lady! With the... shoes?

Well, I mean, they were some pretty sick shoes.
