In another of today's main features, regular columnist Jim Rossignol presents this week's 'Blogged Out', a news report that looks at the world of developer blogging and the conversations being had with the community at large.
This week, Rossignol visits Chris Bateman, GrumpyGamer, Brett Douville and Big G, the last of whom presents some useful new approaches to game management:
"At the top will be the visionary. He'll come up with the high-level concept like "clone Halo". He'll give useful feedback like "make it more fun" and "this isn't cool enough". Below him, we have the chairmen of the right and left sides of the screen. Each one is responsible for all the bugs, gameplay and art that fall on their half of the screen. They both are responsible for the board of directors (which of course has a chairman) that includes director of fun, director of ripping other games off, director of doing nothing, director of time wasting, and director of scheduling."
