"Before the end of my days there, I noticed that a lot of MS employees were starting to appear around the offices. They began to oversee just about everything that went on, and had pretty strict guidelines as to what we could do and couldn't do as far as game content. A few people here and there were laid off and replaced by MS employees.
This hasn't stopped. Friends of mine that still work there have told me that some of the original Access Software employees have been laid off, like Zeke McCabe, longtime photographer of the Links courses and other games. Bruce Carver then emailed everyone, reporting that he highly opposed the act, and felt like he was being betrayed.
