Between the two, Jeff's blog just feels more objective.
Yes, but I will take first hand experience from a disgruntled employee over.... whatever Nyman's blog post is. Conjecture? He said she said?

At least with an ex-employee you know where they stand -- and you know their perspective will be skewed as such.

You have to be careful here. Musco only said that nyman was not ever a BioWare employee.

Technically speaking, when game companies contract out beta testers to test their games, those people although they are testing a game for that company are not employees of that company.

So what Eric said could still hold true, even with Nyman having first-hand knowledge.

And until there's actual proof, Nyman's post is hearsay.

Yeah, Nyman was not an employee, but the anonymous guy in the Kotaku article was an employee. That's why I don't understand why everyone loves Nyman's blog. He's literally just making **** up.

I think the 3.0 route was the right way to go, some story quests+new MMO content.

Every thing in life is temporary, having almost died three times has taught me this.
