Is Process Killing the Software Industry?

kurokaze Re:"Creative" (460 comments)

Sounds like you've got a great job... my company is also CMMI Level 3 and all of tehse boilerplate templates are a huge freakin waste of time - especially when half of it repeats itself over and over.

On top of that, we have developers filling out documents that a BA or PM are supposed to fill out - leaving even less time to site down and figure out the problem. Yes, PMs seem to love handing off the docs to the developers - claiming that since we are building the system, we are the ones that should be filling out project documentation as well! Might as well give me their salary too!

Dollar Apps Killing Traditional Gaming?

kurokaze Starcraft 2 was $60.... (343 comments)

and I'm be damned if I said that I don't feel it was worth every penny. And that's also 1/3rd of what most of us would consider the complete game!!!

I foresee myself buying the second and third one too!

Personally, I'm really sick (literally - I get of physically sick) of yet another FPS. The last one I played and enjoyed was unreal tournament. Come up with some other types of games and we'll talk!

Microsoft Counts Down To XP Death

On the same note... if you're still running RH Linux 9 - which is also EOL'ed - then I'd say good luck trying to find someone to patch your system, instead of telling to upgrade to the latest RHEL.

HD Wii By 2011?

kurokaze Re:Abandoned the Fight (245 comments)

As an RPG fan you can pick up Fire Emblem:Radiant Dawn on Wii. It's a fantastic RPG (with heavy strategy elements). Be warned though, this game will kick your ass. Hard.

Once you're hooked on that you can pick up the GameCube prequel Fire Emblem:Path of Radiance.

Also for the GameCube there is the Baten Kaitos series, another good RPG. There are lots of good RPGs out there, just gotta be open to possibilities.
