  • Twitch is Reportedly Blocked in China After Government Crackdown - MMORPG.com News

    Usually I am all for free markets and against government censorship of anything - but I would vote yes for any bill that made it illegal for people to watch videos of other people playing video games outside of televised ranked competitions. Why? I hate it. That is it. No legal reason or any sort of substantive or reasonable argument. Good call China.

  • The Worst MMO Abilities - MMORPG.com

    Not really an ability but I dislike "weave" systems like in Aion. I don't know if it is still part of the game or not, but when it first was released for NA you used to weave abilities in-between auto attack damage. So hit an ability, wait for white damage, hit an ability, rinse, repeat. I thought it was really boring, whereas other people thought it was highbrow and elegant. To be fair, it is possible I am retarded and like smashing buttons like an idiot.

  • Are MMO with subcriptions too cheap? Games too cheap in general?


    So you think we undersold Hellblade? Because even at over a million copies sold we were afraid to price it higher than we did. Public backlash is a finicky thing. If just a few complain it snowballs and takes years of hard work down the drain. 
    I can't think anything about a game I've never heard of.  How did they do profit sharing?  Straight profit sharing or stock options?  

    Since you are in the game industry and I am not - do you know an example of a AAA game that made a huge profit and the executives shared that profit with their employees?  Or raised their employees salaries?

    Do you mean the developers or the executives?  I've never heard anything about any company making fancy-graphics games using profit-sharing with the people actually making the games.


    Most game studios don't have executives. 
    They all do.  That is inarguable.  The word doesn't have to be in the title for someone or people to have executive responsibilities.  

    And can you name some examples of any game that made a big profit, or even more profit, passing that profit on to all the people who made the game?  If not, please tell me how a higher box price would enrich anyone but the executives?
