comment Is Java a good choice for cross-platform games?
To satisfy the requirements all code would have to ship on FPGA and encased in epoxy. Surprise, even black-box chip packages can and are reverse engineered all the time. Then even mighty giants like Intel introduce bugs in their CPU packages so your epoxy embedded, hardware black box is still going to suffer from exposure to hardware libraries. Finally the call to security by obscurity, that doesn't work. Reductio ad absurdum, I know, but so is the original answer.

Depends on what style of game you're looking to do. Depending on the style wanted it could be that HTML5 and some javascript would work for you, if not java.

+1 for pointing out that "It's the ecosystem, dummy" and not just language syntax =)

comment What Java client+server stack to allow async client info popups and responses?
@MartijnVerburg That book gets some pretty nice reviews. It won't help me directly with my question but it just might help me design the infrastructure that my eventual solution works within. Thanks =)

comment Are there any real-world cases for C++ without exceptions?
All great examples of tightly controlled runtime environments where errors are handled properly and there are no "exceptional" events.

comment Could it be more efficient for systems in general to do away with Stacks and just use Heap for memory management?
On many CPUs the stack is handled in hardware, which is an issue outside language but it plays a big part at run time.

comment Planning Poker and wordy developers
It also helps if preliminary work on the stories is pushed out early, then technical design preliminaries can be done "offline" from the meeting itself. Poker is not the place to hash out solutions, you're wasting an entire department's time. Another idea would be to add "design this stuff" as a story gating an early timebox of "implement this stuff." Next round get real estimates for the implementation.
