The latest 'Blogged Out', news report, looking at the world of developer blogging and the conversations being had with the community at large, this week checks in on EA's Mythic deal, blogs as homes, and the original GTA. This extract references a video game industry doomsayer who is casting around just a little more distractedly than normal in his tea leaves: "Greg Costikyan had this to say about the news that Electronic Arts had purchased MMO developer Mythic Entertainment: 'Either they desperately need to acquire a company like Mythic and tap its expertise and make Mark Jacobs leader of a new foray into MMOs (since he for damn sure does understand the field). Or else Mythic is doomed, doomed, I tell you.'" You can now read the full Gamasutra column on the subject, including plenty more on what the future augurs for the major MMO firms (no registration required, please feel free to link to this feature from external websites)
