Gaming News: "Both Big and Huge"
Posted: Thursday May 28th, 2009 by

Yesterday it was announced that 38 Studios had acquired Rise of Nations developer Big Huge Games from THQ. 38 Studios is the dev house founded by retired, future Hall-of-Fame pitcher Curt Schilling, Spawn creator Todd MacFarlane, and famed fantasy author R.A. Salvatore. 38 Studios is currently working on an "original" fantasy project codenamed Copernicus. Big Huge Games is currently working on an RPG for the 360, PS3, and PC.

This is one of those gaming marriages that make me giggle and not because my brain plays all kinds of tricks on me when it comes to interpretting gaming news headlines. No, it's because I know the work environment for both of these companies are great for their employees. That's one of those things that really impacts the quality of the products being offered, in my opinion.

Now... while I've got your attention.

I'm going out of town for a couple of weeks. My best friend Richard and his wife have a new baby on the way, and they've just moved into a cool building that needs a bit of work to be "baby ready". He's come out to help me when I needed it, now I'm going to return the favor.

This call for help was unexpected, and I'll be leaving as soon as possible. But, as most of you know, I don't work on the comic in advance and it will be exceedingly difficult to generate two weeks worth of strips in the day and a half before I leave. (My flight out is this Saturday.) Compounding the problem is the fact that I'll be there to work. There won't be time to spend 3-5 hours producing a comic each night.

So, I'll be posting some of my old pre-gu artwork as emergency placeholders.
