    Quit whining and get another job. Pick yourself up and try again. If you fail keep trying. No one will help you in this world so stop bitching and do something.

    There's more without expletives by two other people.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I actually feel sympathetic for them. Losing their job after working at a shitty company for years. That must suck. Then again, get up and move on. Life won't wait for you.

    >Implying people can get jobs in this shit economy.

    My dad's been unemployed for almost a year now and he's searched for a job every day. It's not easy. Mind you, his field is a lot different from video game developing, but it's still hard to get a job here.

    I mean, I wouldn't rant like this, as most of these were necessary shutdowns due to the economy, but I do find it humorous.

    Although losing ones job is seldom a good thing this reaction seems more than a little immature and undignified.

    "It doesn't matter if you can make a game in two days or one hour or 14 minutes or six years -- it matters that you make the game the game it should be."

    Amen.

    Yeah, because people are handing out jobs now.

    I feel sympathy for these people. My mom got laid off of her second job, and my big brother isn't doing shit. I just hope I can find a job flipping burgers or working at a grocery store or something so I can buy my own shit. Then I'd of course help pay for the rent.

    That's one reason why it's best to be self-employed. Nobody can fire you, and if you feel like it, you can show up an hour late in your PJ's. [​IMG]

    its more of an ethical thing to fire a person cuz when there are too many it becomes an economical problem esp if the older devs have not got new ideas, they feel the newer,energetic ones should present them
