Morning Discussion

By Alice O'Connor, Feb 10, 2010 5:00am PST "You shouldn't do that," she sighed. "It'll hurt."

"Nonsense! You just need to concentrate." He pulled the trigger and a bullet tore through his thigh, embedding itself in the walnut-effect laminate flooring. She shook her head.

She started, "I did say..." but trailed off as he gritted his teeth, took aim then fired again.

His lower leg flopped to the ground as his thighbone splintered and gave out. He furrowed his brow and went to raise the revolver again but paused. The damned mole on his knee didn't seem so much as troubled by the whole ordeal, let alone removed.

"Ah," he uttered, raising one finger. "No, my mistake. Dreadfully sorry. You're right--it does smart a little. Could you possibly ring for an ambulance?"

The alternate Morning Discussion blurb for today follows: That snow, eh? Tsk! Can't decide whether it's coming or going. Wotta loada old tosh and no mistake, my son.

If you have BioShock 2 chat to chat, hey, here's a dedicated chat thread.

  • RUMOR: Interplay possibly developing new Descent, other games?

    Not sure how much worth to put into this, but a post over at Duck and Cover talks about Interplay moving shares and 4 new games being funded:

    There are a little over 100 million shares of Interplay out there. The fact that Fredrick Chesnais is buying more shares of Interplay and will soon own 10% or so of Interplay which is very good news for stockholders. Fredrick, through I2G, agreed to fund 4 of Interplay's games through his company. He was granted shares for this and options to purchase more shares, and he gave Interplay some worthless IP, submarine something or another, as part of the deal. Basically, the stock deal and options for Fredrick are a reward for getting 4 new Interplay games funded (this isn't confirmed yet, but this stock purchase makes it very, very likely that everything worked out, otherwise Fredrick would not have bought more shares). the games are Descent, Earthworm Jim, Dark Alliance, and MDK (I think MDK, don't remember on that one).
