Rage: Do not recreate what is right under your nose

So I thought it would be great to express some of the things that I constantly complain about to my co-workers and friends. I usually keep my "Rages" private, but it is time to let the world have a piece. Since I rage quiet a bit, I figure I will hold myself to a monthly outlet.

Game Dev Management Tips: The Power of the "One On One"

Before I tell you what I think about One on Ones I would like to give you some background on myself so you know where I'm coming from. The past year or so I was the lead of game development for the company I work for. I directly managed the development of eight game programmers and worked with all the other departments to get the job done. In addition to that experience I have had formal training from the American Management Association (AMA) and have used the resources over at (which I highly recommend you check out if you are interested in that kind of thing).

Ways to Port Other Company's Games

To explain the title a bit more, this post will be specifically focused on a Bad, Good, and an Interesting way (that is also good) that I've experienced when porting other company's games. I have also found it hard to find information online about this topic and that has always frustrated me.

First Post


I will be using this blog to express the many thoughts and ideas I have in my head. Too many of these thoughts and ideas get expressed over IMs and impromptu conversation with my friends. while I love to hear their thoughts, I believe I could be getting a larger variety of feedback if the world could give me its 2 cents.

Before I begin I would like to set some things straight. I am no Guru of any sort, but I like to think I am at least a newb++. I will probably say things that are either wrong, right, controversial, mis-spelled or boring, but I will only apologize in advance for the last two. That means if you got Beef, I want to hear it. I like to think Beef (AKA feedback) makes us all stronger if we care to listen and dig into it. I would prefer constructiveness, but to be honest if you just want to take the time to say "you suck", I will be happy you even care.

The content focus of this blog will be in the area of Game Development. Sub-content focus will consist of: Programming, Development Tools, Managing and Misc. I may switch it up with a post here and there about random thoughts about music or life, but they will not be the main focus.

Stay tuned.
