It would be so awesome if I could come to work every day and know that everything developers say is absolutely truthful and no shenanigans are occurring. But of course, that’s not the world we live in. In fact, one of the rules around here is “save your recordings” because you will not believe what studios will say right on the record and then claim they would never.
Last year’s winner (loser?) for this Daily Grind was the Marvel Heroes, whose studio Gazillion reps claimed to us that “the company is functioning normally” when it most definitely was not (and was in fact in the middle of collapse). My pick for fib of the year in 2018, though? Daybreak would be the obvious pick, so instead, I’m going with ESA president Mike Gallagher, who said – apparently with a straight face – that lockboxes aren’t gambling because “video games never take money from a player and leave them with nothing.” Ug.
Which MMO studio told the biggest fib in 2018, and what was it?
