    McCain is listed as "Game Director, Art Director." But there are 5 people listed as project leads.

    Jesus guys. Everybody and their mother know that MECH of anykind will not be the war vehicle of the future. People like it because it is COOL not because it makes sense or someshit.

    Realistic wars in any future will done by 10 meter cubic metal boxes having 4 missiles each controlled by nerd thousand of feet away, or even automatically controlled by AI through machine learning or someshit. And the counter to that is most likely another 10 meter cubic metal boxes also having 4 missiles each also controlled by nerd thousand of feet away or more likely will be automatically controlled by AI through machine learning.

    Its the most boring shit ever. Now leave me and my mech fantasy alone.

    Under "Design & Writing". The Lead is Shillarytron's best butt buddy. The initial call to put the blame on Kevin was correct as he is project lead for writing.

    I was using "Project Lead" as a synonym of "Game Director". He's the boss of the project, in theory. But yes, none of those other leads was Maginn either. :M

    Gotta love the ducking and jiving.

    Obviously, certain people don't know how complex projects with multiple workstreams tend to be run. It is actually all there in the credits, neatly divided into different sections, each with its project/team lead. But... it is not their fault, according to Shillarytron. Truly Shillarytron's idea of how a project is run means that the leads of different teams within the project has absolutely no responsibility or accountability for their team's performance in achieving its goals. The blame lies with the programme director instead.

    What a great new method of project management that has been revealed to us. We must call up every university we know and reveal to them this new and incredible project management methodology! Forget RACI charts. Forget PMBOK or PRINCE2 or Agile or any other project methodology you know or have heard of! We should all convert to the Infinitron-HBS (I-HBS) methodology! It is the best thing ever because it doesn't matter what you do or how you perform, the guy up top is the one getting it up the arse! BRILLIANT! How could such a superbly intelligent method fail?

    unintended consequences: this voice selector is only possible so soon because it hijacks the pronoun selector functionality (which has made certain people upset)

    Callyste's portraits are certainly an improvement on some of the existing ones (and there's a Frank Castle in there)

    So the new 1.03 patch is downloading for me. Half of the patch notes are some achievement fixes. It is nice to see that Inflamatron's girlfriend knows what is the priority

    Not sure why you think that, I seriously doubt McCain is overriding Gitelman, since Gitelman is his boss (the studio was founded by Jordan and Gitelman). Jordan, his other boss, is Executive Producer. Executive Producer makes it sound like Jordan wasn't _too_ involved, but then again Gitelman was Executive Producer on SR:HK, where he was one of the co-Directors (and Jordan has acted like he's been pretty involved in Battletech). I don't know how involved Chris Klimecky (listed as "Lead Producer") was, though it's worth noting he was a producer for HK but not Dragonfall.

    Good to know I made the right decision by selling my kickstarter backer key on Ebay (for a small profit even). Fuck these SJW cucks.

    No more Jew Gold for these Jews.

    No. Callyste's portraits are an improvement because the females are actually females, not crossdressing males and the males are real males, not trannies trying to look male.

    Modern day armoured combat vests in BTech is just another proof of HBS not caring about BTech lore or fans. Nothing new there. If I ever happen to be in the area, their HQ is going to be paint bombed until it looks like Rainbow Brite on LSD.

    Note to Kevin: Being a nerd fan of something doesn't mean you fuck it up the arse, Kevin. It means you treat the material with reverence and follow hat has been established. You are no fan of BTech. You are nothing but a rapist.

    I noticed that, most of the females are black or trannies, or both, very few normal females... And those black are not even well made... I mean i could go with some cool black dude, and some decent black woman, just for "diversity". Lots of interbreeding...

    Ov vey! i forgot how awful SJW reddit is. I made some comment about huge loading times and that the end trolling that they wasted their times on pronouns and incloosivity, comment got buried so fast with -30, same with another guys in that thread. GG ! SJW Safespace.

    Too bad on some missions there's a really heavy-handed application of instagram-style filters.

    I forgive the artist. Her artistic style makes up for the lack of nudity from mechwarrior chicks. This and the fact she's pretty hot.

    So if Bethesda had some hot chicks on the team that made Fallout 3/4 it makes it a good game (or faithful to Fallout 1/2)?

    Dude watch porn, jerk off to the artist and than stop thinking with your dick.
