    Planned for release “well before Christmas 1998,” the game would ultimately be worked and re-worked every time a new technology came out. Rather than actually finish the game, the developer George Broussard dragged it out until it was finally released in 2011, to disappointingly low reviews. Why did this happen?

Therefore, each time a new piece of hardware came out, there was always enough money to scratch a part of the game in order to upgrade it. This would ultimately lead to a cycle of creating and redoing that would lead to the project almost being cancelled.

In Browning’s poem, the reader is introduced to a seemingly expressive and biased rant from the Duke about his past Duchess, speaking to an envoy. ‘My’, the possessive pronoun, implies he sees women as possessions. The Duke thinks the world revolves around him because he owns "a nine-hundred-years-old name”, the reader…

With this the impression is created that…
