Yeah, it's kind of strange getting use to the idea after waiting for soo long.

That said - the merged with OOTB was - for my enjoyment - a high risk low reward kinda deal.

What saddens me is Jims blog about the future and the possibility of him leaving FOF - and TCY.

Sounds about right. Jim didn't get his way and Markus didn't give him much resources/time.

What I have come to find out about Jim after following his games for all these years is, it's either his way or the highway. He's a very Black and white guy, no gray area, it also sounds like he's impossible to work with too. (Referring to his time at EA and now OOTP) But I do feel bad for Jim as it appears they hung him out to dry after years of development time.

It's too bad the partnership ended with Markus, we were all really looking forward to what the merger would have looked like, oh well maybe we can get TCY2 finally.

Side note, I wonder if this has anything to do with OOTP joining EA and EA's bad past with Jim?

Yea I feel like besides the beating up in OOTP across the forums it is very likely Jim sees this as his baby and would not compromise.

Personally I feel like just doing some tweaks to FOF8 could be a new game, am gonna compile a list and send over to you Josh sometime soon.

Yeah Ush, that sounds like a good idea. Lets make a list and send it off to Jim, maybe we can inspire him to keep it going. I would love to see a TCY2 or FOF9 made from Jim with his Below Average UI and killer sim engine, hell maybe we can see if he would want to start a kickstarter or something.
