Adventures in Reductivist Reading

So Gamasutra published an interview with Greg Zeschuk and Ray Muzyka about EA’s acquisition of BioWare/Pandemic. As I was reading, I kind of got the feeling they were repeating the same message over and over. I did a word frequency count of their responses, and got these top results:

51 the
44 and
39 to
24 in
24 a
22 we
21 of
20 that
20 really
16 think
15 we’re
14 it’s
14 great

Hmm. Throwing away the incidental results: “We think that it’s really great.”

Gee, guys, you could’ve saved me five minutes of reading and just cut to the point!

You should read Greg Costikyany’s analysis, shows it to be something of a cluster-fuck.

I read his blog regularly, so I already did.

Awesome. That’s all. You made me laugh.
