Oh I also know a few developers, some have even worked on halo games, ya know? Wife is from Seattle.
Wife from Seattle, Wow you should be an expert on gaming because of that reason alone. So now knowing some developers that so called "worked on halo games" makes you know what developers go through? I know that when I go home I don't tell my wife, family, friends, or anyone else what frustrations I go through on a daily basis with our games. I don't tell them about the long meetings, the great time I have coding, or the fun I have when the test teams come back to tell me all the issues they found that now need to be fixed. Maybe I don't tell them because of the NDA or the fact that they don't care or just the fact that it's my job and I have to deal with it. It is common sense to NOT make the part of a game balanced that is NOT supposed to be balanced (AKA Iron Banner).
