Clash Over 38 Studios Deal at RI Gov. Debate

October 27, 2010 -

The 38 Studios $75 million Rhode Island deal got a slight bit of airtime during this week's Rhode Island Gubernatorial debate. The fun begins at the 23:31 mark in the debate. The Providence Journal covers much of the debate in its write up.

Seven candidates are running in the Rhode Island gubernatorial race, but only four were at this week's debate. Those candidates were Democratic General Treasurer Frank Caprio (who is getting a lot of air time over his disparaging comments to President Obama about not getting an endorsement), Republican John Robitaille, independent Lincoln Chafee (an old Senate friend of the President), and Moderate Party candidate Ken Block.

Moderate party candidate Block strongly criticized Independent candidate Chafee for saying that he would consider suing current Governor Carcieri and the state Economic Development Corporation over the 38 Studios $75-million loan guarantee. Watch the video to see the back and forth.

Andrew EisenDoesn't matter if you play more games where the cast is the same basic character model. In this type of game, being able to easily tell which character you're looking at serves an important purpose.03/06/2015 - 7:29pm
ZippyDSMleeMechaCrash:Meh I've played more stuff that had pickups rather than set class's.03/06/2015 - 7:22pm
MechaCrashZarya's body type also has a pragmatic reason. Ever notice how in TF2, you can immediately tell who's who because they all have very different profiles? Same deal with Overwatch. If you see Zarya, you KNOW it's Zarya.03/06/2015 - 6:32pm

ZippyDSMleeNearly anyway the new UT game has color at least. And wow they changed to C++ 0-o03/06/2015 - 5:43pm
ZippyDSMleeCraig R.: Same reason why UT99/04 and UT3 are diffrent, gritty is the thing to do...at least it was... nearly everyone else grew out of dark and gritty….03/06/2015 - 5:40pm
ZippyDSMleeI doubt each model of characters in COH/COV/CO,ect are kept as unique model data.03/06/2015 - 5:39pm
ZippyDSMleemodel shape.03/06/2015 - 5:38pm
ZippyDSMleeMonte:I think it’s more a part of the engine, yes its more work but you should be able to have some sort of physical collision system in place to keep arms and stuff from clipping. Outside of that the data stored is just number variables to change the m03/06/2015 - 5:38pm
Andrew EisenAt least she's smiling in one of the pics.03/06/2015 - 5:31pm
Craig R.It's like somebody took the color palette and decided that anything approaching 'bright' is unacceptable03/06/2015 - 5:30pm
Craig R.Scratching my head as to why DC shows are as dark and drab, color-wise, as the movies look to be03/06/2015 - 5:30pm
MonteIf for instance you make the character fat, you need to make sure the animation of the character moving his arms and gun around, won't result in them clipping into the character's larger stomach03/06/2015 - 5:22pm
Monte@zippy, I imagine creating customizabel, vastly different body types would add a lot more complexity. Like making sure the character's animation still looks right. It can be done, but it can get complicated03/06/2015 - 5:19pm

prh99I think it probably far easier to add a character than strip a feature from game engine that was baked in from the start.03/06/2015 - 4:45pm
Andrew EisenAs I've said twice already, yes, strides in one area do not absolve anyone from criticism over where else they're falling short.03/06/2015 - 3:04pm
ZippyDSMleeI know I know one thing is not the other. Still worth nagging about.I still do not see why they do not put in body sliders and elt people make thier own body types....I'd do fat/pudgy or chibi befor I do ultra generic prefect body......03/06/2015 - 2:59pm
Andrew EisenAgain, yes, it's dumb that there's no offline mode and that's certainly something worthy of criticism but that does not make any positive moves Blizzard makes any less positive. A bummer that the issue that's more important to you wasn't addressed? Sure.03/06/2015 - 2:46pm
ZippyDSMleeBut...but... but my butthurt!!111 LOL :P03/06/2015 - 2:45pm
