SummaryAn exceprt from the SC3 staff meeting...
The GoodPROJECT HEAD: Okay, staff, let's really take this alliance building, diplomacy thing full tilt on this one.
DESIGN STAFF: Sure.
The BadHEAD: How's the dialogue coming along?
SCRIPTWRITER: Uh... well... um... I like Juicy Fruit?
HEAD: Okay, let's rip it off straight from SC2, shall we? How's testing coming along.
RESEARCH STAFF: We've got Bob the Janitor and our pet gerbil playing SC2 right now, sir.
RESEARCH: Bob's getting upset because the gerbil keeps beating him at HyperMelee.
HEAD: Right. Let's dumb down the artificial intelligence. Have the enemy fly in some random direction as soon as combat starts. Okay, what have we done to research the plot?
RESEARCH: We watched the "Friends" marathon.
SCRIPTWRITER: I have a secret friend.
HEAD: Sounds like that man's making progress.
DESIGN: Yes, sir. He doesn't think he's a plank anymore.
HEAD: Okay, about the plot.
RESEARCH: Well, Bob the janitor is having trouble understanding what's going on in SC2, so we figured we'd make it a little less complex.
HEAD: How much less complex?
RESEARCH: About as simple as an episode of... well...
HEAD: Let me guess, an episode of "Friends," right?
RESEARCH: Could be, yes.
SCRIPWRITER: Cheez-Wiz is the opiate of the masses.
HEAD: Comission that man to write that Star Control novel we were talking about.
RESEARCH: Ah, "Interbellum."
HEAD: And make the Spathi sound like Woody Allen!
DESIGN: We can make all the villains TOTALLY one-sided dorks!
RESEARCH: Bob's eating his 3DO controller...
HEAD: Take out all the planet exploration features!
DESIGN: BACK TO MIDI MUSIC!!!
HEAD: Create TWO WHOLE MINUTES of CG movies!
RESEARCH: We can use random goobers as voice talent!
SCRIPTWRITER: I have my own Tandy, you know.
