Good read!

Really funny insights on the trials and tribulations of working with licensed content.

I remember those 16 bit days very well, i still call it the golden era of gaming... Seems like everywhere this guy goes things tend to fall apart... His flash based websites that are in need of a "facelift" are the least of his worries seeing as how things are moving to html-5 now...i see another employee mass meeting for them.
