I remember trading e-mails with Della Rocca when he sent me an e-mail in reply to a comment I posted on his blog. He's a good man, and I hope he gets a job where his skills can be put to good use.

I hope he gets a job where his skills can be put to good use

Considering he has started his own consulting firm,  I think he has.

Andrew EisenIanC - The original version of the article included a tweet showing that the exhibitor had been asked to leave so no, the article was not published before that happened.04/19/2015 - 7:47pm
Matthew Wilson@IAMC as I understand it they disrupted the panel. if they were kicked out just for being a part of GG I would have a issue, but from what I read that wasnt the case.04/19/2015 - 4:24pm
IanCOh and the "false premises" thing? The article on MarySue that said that went up before they got told to leave. How weird that...04/19/2015 - 4:22pm
IanCOf course the fact that group is mostly women goes against everything the antis say about GG, doesn't it? Also from what I've heard they polity asked a couple of questions at a panel, then got kicked out without even getting to pick up tier coats04/19/2015 - 4:21pm

MechaCrashI can understand why Sony wants the Pokemon and Smash movie rights, but it's not hard to see why Nintendo wouldn't want to sell to them. Kinda their competitors in the console arena.04/17/2015 - 8:01pm
PHX Corp@MW We won't know until the nintendo General Shareholders meeting if the leaks(From Sony Pictures) is true or not04/17/2015 - 7:55pm
