Everything except the first two paragraphs and the last should either be on a work page or is some sort of irrelevant trivia. The last sentence of the second paragraph also has no real relevance to anything.

The first two paragraphs (sans mentioned sentence) and the last look more or less fine, though.

Wait, let me break this down more, because this is SUCH a long text spam;

Paragraph 1- details the process they use to make games; probably fine

Paragraph 2- details positives and negatives of this process; also fine, except for the irrelevant last sentence

Paragraph 3- very negatively worded and more likely belongs on specific work pages (maybe one sentence mentioning frequent leaks would be fine)

Paragraph 4- bashing, belongs under Porting Disaster for specific works

Paragraph 5- actually maybe ok?

Paragraph 6/7- somewhat bash-y, most of this properly should be on Rayman pages

Paragraph 8- totally irrelevant, cut faster than a thing you cut really fast

Paragraph 9- good summary, keep
