Dirty Coding Stories

I came across this article on Gamasutra today and I haven't laughed so hard in a long while. I think you need a little programming experience to get some of the stories but it goes to show what it is really like to work in the games industry with a tough deadline.

My personal favourite is the one with the space fix:

"We opened up the text file responsible for the conflict, added a space at the end, and saved it. We looked at each other with huge grins on our faces and said: Ship it!"

Monster Hunter 3 IS coming to UK!

I can happily announce that Capcom have announced plans to bring Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) to the Western market in early 2010! I've waited almost 3 years for a new Monster Hunter after they closed the first game in 2007 and I refuse to invest in a PSP when the screen is so small.

Here is the source of the news for those that do not believe these words:

I leave you with what I believe is their last trailer!

"Excited" doesn't even describe the feelings right now!
