sweetmelissa31: Schilling tweeted that "if the state loses money it's because the Governor is a dunce of epic proportions, nothing I can do about that."So he's a dunce for loaning money to Schiller. I guess I can agree with that.
Fear_and_Loathing: The Govenor that called his bluff, didn't give him the money. He was against it.
sweetmelissa31: Fear_and_Loathing: The Govenor that called his bluff, didn't give him the money. He was against it.Ah, so the governor is a dunce because he didn't want to lend money to a company that eventually failed and the state did it anyway and lost money.

The current governor was against it. Curt blew 75 million in just over a year. Which was 70% of the budget the state had to create jobs. They layed off 400 people, against the law. Defaualted on the loan and bought another company that they also laid off everyone. Two states, one blow hard.
Sgt Otter: ...and if I understand correctly, what money that Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning made, nearly all of it went to the publisher, Electronic Arts, instead of going back to Schilling's actual game studio, due to the idiotic publishing contract he signed with EA.
EyeballKid: Your Party of Personal AccountabilityTM!!!!The ex-pitcher, who also played for Baltimore, Philadelphia and Houston, conceded previously that he himself was "absolutely" part of the reason the company failed.
groppet: Too bad you cant go to jail for being a douchebag
js34603: Why the fark would any state guarantee that kind of money to a new game company?
tlchwi02: js34603: Why the fark would any state guarantee that kind of money to a new game company?when its an outgoing governor who has maxed his term limits, who makes the decision without any input from the legislature and the person who receives all the money is a local sports hero and personal friend of said governor?
UNC_Samurai: Two companies? You leave MultiMelti-Man Publishing out of this!
Tannhauser: KoA was a good game, they just spent like drunken sailors and no one seemed to be in charge of the purse strings. The executives at 38 Studios are just as much to blame as Curt.
