Maybe that's what I like about this guy. He's got everything to prove and tons to lose. And he's going to try to do it by making adventure games. That's just plain nuts!

The only good thing Bad Brain has done for me is keep me nice and occupied with their puzzles to reveal their so-called secret game. Although nothing came of it and I was pretty pissed at the end, I have to admit that the ride was fun.

On another note. I wonder if the people who he "cast" for I-Jet are even real people. maybe he made them up too.

There were casting videos made available when they held auditions, so the people are probably real, unless he's REALLY good at CG animation. They're in that Club Bad Brain thing on the website.

I'm sorry, I just can't take that guy seriously. He's an amusing comical character and I'm far from hating him, or Bad Brain, but that's all he'll remain until he comes up with some good games to back his claims up.

I agree with you.
Although, he's only on the level of annoyance, I have no respect for someone like him.

My problem with him is that he spends far too much energy shooting his mouth off about how great these games are gonna be and how fabulous he is that he thought them up. I'd prefer he keep a low profile for a while and actually make the games first? Say, some very nicely done tech demos, screenshots, teaser trailer......you know, actual progress?

Yes. After a fashion, as it were.

It takes no genius to lie for free publicity. Just nerve. And the whole "no such thing as bad publicity" thing is nonsense. Bad Brain has burned player and media trust, and really their games are generating very little interest now. (A single thread on a fan site further mocking their professionalism hardly qualifies.)

I don't think anyone is saying they aren't capable of coming up with a decent game, though the odds are severely stacked against them releasing anything, let alone something good. But lots of companies succeed in spite of their management incompetence (I know, I've worked for some). So the right team could pull off a nice game even while he runs around shooting himself in the foot.

Seems pretty obvious that his high-profile claims and promises were really to attract investors, not fans. I think the only question at this point is whether Bad Brain actually has any money (the kind needed to produce a game, market it, and get it on shelves around the world).

I've got plenty of faith to go around for all of the lying adventure game company CEO's, all of the fledgling startups like Telltale who choose an unpopular distribution method, and even those poor loveable dopes, the fangame creators who keep on making fangames knowing full well that their efforts could be for nothing when a C&D comes their way. I'm not the only crazy one around here.

I've got this gut feeling that Wolfgang Kierdorf and Dr. Uwe Boll are related.

He's a crazy German movie director or something. He turns video games into bad movies. Or at least mediocre ones. I don't think I've seen any of his films.

Bloodrayne
Far Cry
Fear effect
