. What I don't get is all the secrecy. If programmers aren't ready to announce titles yet, fine. But Mark keeps jabbing away with snarky comments like "that you know of".
Well, by all means, enlighten us, dude.
What is he supposed to do?
You come out and essentially call the XM games 'vapourware' because you haven't personally seen them. He says that there are several in development but doesn't want to go into it further. Suppose he tells us about all the projects he's got or is considering? What that will open up is a constant stream of "when's this coming, when's this coming?" from a lot of people in the community. Suppose life changes, plans change, something doesn't pan out?
I understand why he doesn't want to get into more details.
yet he's allowed to be condescending and rude, and it's my fault? C'mon.
Dude - my issue with it is that you won't freakin' let it go
! Curt, Ed, Mark and others have been working hard on the XM for a while and investing a ton of hours on it. Yet, you keep acting like a killjoy by re-raising these threads about how it 'is pointless' or 'won't have any games' or how 'games are vapourware.
If I was spending hundreds of my hours doing this as a labour of love, I'd be a little pissed off at you not letting it go either. Would you be satisfied if the project were cancelled? Would you be satisfied if you aggrevate the people working on it so much that they abandon their work?
