I just noticed that there is no section for industry topics. Obviously
this is a major factor in the development of games, being that it should
influence where you should go with it. So, would it be too much to ask
for an in-the-industry section?

www.gamedev.net (articles/industry) for articles from
the industry about the industry.
This site does not need it (as it is primarially about game
development). However some people on this site know about the
industry, and if you have a query, simple ask.
You really think industry stuff falls out of DevMaster’s domain? I
wouldn’t have said so.
Most of the industry related sides are not really about development,
more about the beast that is behind one side of development, we rarely
have any ads for paid positions and only a few people from the
“industry” post on here.
That said, we do have a few articles and the like, but I merely wanted
to point out that Gamasutra is simple the best site for all things
industry and GameDev.net has some great articles and listings.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
There isn’t a forum for it simply because there isn’t a demand for it as
yet. When we get flooded with all sorts of industry questions and topics
then we’ll need a new forum :).
Yeah, I agree with Methulah. This site is about programming and other
such technical stuff, not about business models and product lifecycles,
and I like it that way :)
After you have been recieving “Inside Gamasutra” and “Game Developers
Magazine” you realise that the industry is fairly boring and corrupts a
lot of good people (e.g. Variant/SOE).
Gamasutra is just such a good place for industry related stuff that
devmaster doesn’t need the hassle.
Sorry if anyone here works for SOE =)
Fair enough :)
Jeez… I kinda feel like I just open Pandora’s Box.
I still can’t see how you all would say that the industry has nothing to
do with the development process. Most all games are based first off of
what’s going on in the industry. I think this is the only kinda work
that the advertisers can tell you what to add/take from a game.
Then as for going to other sites, I just really like it here is all. The
website does not have anoying moving ads. The people are really good
here. And I feel kinda homely here. It’s a good place. I just thought it
could be a little better is all.
I am not saying you should leave devMASTER, don’t get me wrong, I am
just saying that it is good not to limit yourself to one place, I post
on a very irregular basis on gamedev.net and read the articles there
more often than I read articles here (in general gamedev.net articles
are better then devMASTER).
If you want industry related stuff, there are HUGE amounts of them on
Gamasutra, (free sign up).
Anyway, keep posting here, and read some articles elsewhere, for you
WILL find some interesting stuff that devmaster cannot offer.
