    News Digest for the Week of May 7

    It happens more often than you think. Or happened, at least. I'm not sure how it works now, but for a long time, there was a long process to get your own channel, even if it's just a cable channel. Regulatory hoops and making deals with all the different cable and satellite providers to carry...

    Goblinization Day

    Some quick fun facts about Goblinization: It did not happen all at once, it just started en masse on April 30 with new cases reported over the course of about a month before trickling off to only a handful annually. Goblinization is a days-long painful process where bones grow and rearrange...

    News Digest for the Week of April 23

    Because Resolve isn't very intuitive (even by the standards of video editing software) and it's more "free" like a free-to-play game is free. Sure you can technically use it for free, but a lot of the features, effects, transitions, etc. are behind microtransaction-like paywalls.

    I will say "The developer just released a major patch with new gameplay features" for a video game that's 23 years old was not something I expected I'd ever report on.

    News Digest for the Week of April 16

    It's the other way around based on what I read. Since Tatsunoko was in the middle of the struggle with Bigwest over the ownership and the legal rulings at that point was a split ownership that heavily restricted what Tatsunoko could do internationally, they tasked Harmony Gold with being their...

    News Digest for the Week of April 16

    Fun Fact: It was reported a few months after I made my video about the Unseen that Harmony Gold's licensing terms with Tatsunoko included a clause that they may deduct any legal fees incurred while "protecting" the Macross intellectual property rights outside of Japan from their licensing fees...

    News Digest for the Week of April 16

    Being perfectly honest, I have no idea. My frame of reference for all this is BattleTech and the legal struggles with Harmony Gold. The whole dispute over Macross's ownership was one of the central parts of the defense from Piranha's legal team during the last lawsuit over MechWarrior Online...

    News Digest for the Week of April 16

    It all depends on whether or not Harmony Gold is able to get their Robotech live action film off the ground finally or not. I can't say for sure, but I personally think a big roadblock has been that Bigwest threatened to sue the crap out of them if they tried to release it in Japan...which for a...

    It's possible. The announcement didn't outright state it, but it seemed to imply Goodman Games bought the rights to Dark Tower outright rather than licensing them. I mean it's possible it's a license and thus will have restrictions on it like the WotC material, but they say "Goodman Games has...

    A First Look at 2d20 Fallout from Modiphius

    Automatron was DLC for the video game, makes sense to make it a sourcebook for the RPG.
