I heard Chaos and Ryg are already working for EA and they just managed to pull Navis! They are working on the new FIFA.

They are working on the new FIFA.

I don't care who's working on it as long as they fix the goalie AI :P

Oh and that part where players will just stand and wait for the ball like some dive afraid of ruining their pedicure, instead of just running to meet the pass.

Oh and that part where you're auto-running towards the ball, the opponent makes a cross and your player just goes "huh, where'd it go?" and stops dead in his tracks.

Who cares about player AI when the pitch markings will appear with a super cool transition in glowing blue lines?

mic: I heard that the AI code within FIFA is a total mystery, even to the developers.. no one wants to go near it! So dont expect it to change very much unless a complete rewrite of that engine is done ;)

I actually found a pretty cool screenshot of the new FIFA! It looks really awesome!

can I ask what EA is? I understand is a game company right?

I don't like video games you know. I only played PacMan and Monkey Island back in MsDOS. I have a picture that proves the former:

iq: when you write demos, is there 999 more of you, all sat in front of a typewriter? :)

Navis is working on Fifa2010:

In FIFA 10 all games will take place on glowing mountain landscapes, cut through by boolean operators applied on the slopes, and surrounded by starry skies with nuclear explosions going off in the background.

psonice, more or less. We recently opened the "rgba & tbc intro factory inc". You need few thousand programmers trying random byte combinations day and night until you get an intro. The amount of permutations are huge, but so is their motivation... In any case, the investment has paid off now.

rgba & tbc intro factory inc

We found a place where the prize of the kilobyte per hour was cheaper than here. We gathered and trained our employees. I must say they are good workers, at least Mentor is quite happy with them now, although it took some time to get his celebrated "mentorization" methodology up and running right. The main secret is to tell them what to do in detail as many times as needed until they get it:

how to "mentorize" the code

When mentorization fails on an employee puryx and mentor himself do they best to "convince" them they should try harder. We believe in employees, we never fire anybody:

Luckily for us, since we founded "rgba & tbc intro factory, inc" (RATIFI for short) we have found that intro making is much easier. Just get an idea, and make your employees feel enthusiastic about it. We found easy to make them follow our dreams:
