Failure Is An Option

Posted by Stropp on February 9, 2013 Tobold's post today is concerned with the nostalgia aspect of being a MMORPG player. It is a post in which he raises some good points. But he also makes an interesting comment. A comment I have heard a lot regarding MMORPG developers, or just game developers in general. And this highlighted something I've been thinking about lately.

while Camelot Unchained will only have the PvP part. Does anybody really believe this is going to be a huge success? Especially since Mark Jacobs previous attempt to make a new DAoC-successor, Warhammer Online, was such a big success...

It seems to be a common theme that when a developer lets down the player audience by producing a flop, then he suddenly falls into the category of "will never create a good game again." Whenever such an announcement is posted on a gaming site such as RPS, the comment section is immediately filled with butt-hurt comments stating how he failed on such-and-such a game and "I'll never buy a game he's made again." So Tobolds point of sarcasm in his post stands out and surprised me a little coming from someone who works as a scientist. After all science is not only built on failure, it depends on failure. And if we really think about it, so is life. The thing is we sometimes learn more by failure than we do by success. Edison when he was asked about all his failed attempts to create the light-bulb said that he didn't fail on each attempt, in fact with each failed try he learned a new way not to learn how to make a light-bulb. Could we say the same thing about Warhammer Online? Does the fact that Jacobs has failed with one attempt to create a successor to DAOC mean that all subsequent attempts will also be failures? On the contrary, for Mark Jacobs, Warhammer Online was an experience in learning how not to make a successor to Warhammer Online. Doesn't this increase the chance that the next attempt will be successful assuming he learned the lessons of WO? I just wonder, if Edison had listened to a gaggle of followers who continually complained about his previous light-bulb attempts and how any light-bulb he created was doomed to failure, then would we all be still living by candlelight? Will Jacobs succeed or fail this time around? Who knows, but if he listens to the naysayers, then we'll never know, and who knows we may even be deprived of the greatest game ever made. Everything we have, all our conveniences and necessities, were built by people who failed but then tried again.

Buy Lexapro Without Prescription

Posted by Stropp on October 8, 2011

Buy Lexapro Without Prescription, If you read Tobold's blog you would have seen a post a few days ago where he lamented the loss of his Facebook account. Lexapro alternatives, It's in Facebook's terms of service that the name you use must be 'real.' And by real, I guess that means the one on your birth certificate, Lexapro treatment. Buy no prescription Lexapro online, (I wonder when Stephen King will have his account banned.)

Today, Tobold posts about one of the consequences of that banning, real brand Lexapro online. Lexapro canada, mexico, india, He used Facebook Connect to add some social functionality to Castle Empires Online (aka The Settlers Online.) This linked the game to his Facebook account via an app, and now he cannot access that game until he removes the app, purchase Lexapro for sale. Lexapro reviews, Of course he cannot remove the app because he can't log in to that Facebook account.

No Castle Empires Online for you, Buy Lexapro Without Prescription. Catch 22, Lexapro trusted pharmacy reviews. Lexapro without a prescription, That's some catch, that Catch 22, Lexapro no prescription. After Lexapro, It's the best there is.

I don't know about you, buy Lexapro without prescription, Where can i find Lexapro online, but I've recently noticed a number of blogs sporting a comment section that is basically a Facebook widget that requires a guest to login to their Facebook account in order to comment. Buy Lexapro Without Prescription, Aside from the questionable practice of forcing someone who may not want to have a FB account to have one to comment, or to have every comment they make replicated in their FB feed, the bigger issue to me is the loss of control the blog owner is giving to Facebook. No longer does the blog own the comments, Lexapro results, Online buying Lexapro, they are now Facebook property. And if Facebook decides for one reason or another to ban that blog, rx free Lexapro, Lexapro no rx, well, what happens to all those comments, buy Lexapro online no prescription. Cheap Lexapro, This Tobold Facebook banning has brought another issue to mind.

Blizzard now has a policy of linking their various games together in the same account, Lexapro schedule. Your World of Warcraft, Starcraft 2, and soon Diablo 3 games will all be linked together, if you use the same Battlenet account, Buy Lexapro Without Prescription. Lexapro steet value, Now what happens if in one of those games you do something against the terms of service and get yourself an account ban. Do you lose access to every Blizzard game linked to that account, get Lexapro. Is Lexapro safe, And hey, it might not even be you doing the dirty deed, Lexapro price. Lexapro overnight, Account hacks are not unknown, and folks have been banned temporarily on that basis, order Lexapro online c.o.d. Buy Lexapro Without Prescription, So your WoW account is hacked, and Blizzard shuts you down for two weeks while it investigates. Discount Lexapro, And during this time you don't have access to SG2, or D3 to fill the gaming gap, Lexapro over the counter. Lexapro recreational, Nice.

That's why it's been my policy for some time to not do things like use Facebook Connect, kjøpe Lexapro på nett, köpa Lexapro online. Buy Lexapro no prescription, If a game offers an update service such as tweeting achievements, fine, canada, mexico, india. You can turn those off in game, Buy Lexapro Without Prescription. Lexapro pictures, But a game should never be disabled by the failure of an optional third party service. That is unacceptable, Lexapro dose. Lexapro canada, mexico, india, This is also why I create a separate Battlenet account for each of my Blizzard games. I have used different emails for both WoW and SC2, and I'll be creating a new email address for Diablo 3 when I buy that.

The world is rushing headlong towards a completely connected state where everything is linked. Don't get me wrong, this can be very useful and save time by simplifying online life, but the problem here is if one link fails, does it bring down the rest.

Is anyone considering the side effects, or building in redundancy.

Buy Spiriva Without Prescription

Posted by Stropp on February 12, 2010

Buy Spiriva Without Prescription, One of the most critical aspects of any story, is that there be conflict. Buy no prescription Spiriva online, No book about a guy who has a normal, uneventful life would become a bestseller, generic Spiriva. Comprar en línea Spiriva, comprar Spiriva baratos, For some reason us humans seem to like conflict. We find it entertaining and it draws us in, Spiriva gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release. Spiriva for sale, We love drama and hurt feelings.

So it's no surprise that Tobold in regards to his blogging spat with Syncaine finds that his comment numbers for the drama posts are dramatically increased over his normal game commentary, ordering Spiriva online. Spiriva overnight, I suspect however, that both Tobold and Syncaine are aware of the effects of controversy, what is Spiriva, Spiriva steet value, and are simply playing to the crowd. Tobold especially over the last few months has been periodically posting about how he manages criticism on his blog, Spiriva over the counter, Buy Spiriva without a prescription, and he's certainly right to set ground rules for comments on his blog. Tobold's complaints about Syncaine, Spiriva price, coupon, Spiriva class, and the frequency of their occurence, seem to me to be more about getting visitors to his blog than about hurt feelings, Spiriva dangers. Buy cheap Spiriva, Otherwise Tobold has got some really thin skin, perhaps too thin for a blogger, buy Spiriva without prescription.

Cafergot For Sale

Posted by Stropp on November 10, 2009

Tobold has just posted a thought for today Cafergot For Sale, : That the EA Layoffs are due to the piracy of their games.

Now first of all, Cafergot pictures, Cafergot no rx, after re-reading, I'm not sure if he's being serious or just being a tad sarcastic, where can i find Cafergot online. Cafergot australia, uk, us, usa, For the purpose of this post, I'll assume he's being serious when he says: "What did people think would happen to a company making bad games and being constantly robbed, after Cafergot, Cafergot wiki, in the middle of an economic crisis. If you wanted to save an EA programmer's job, discount Cafergot, Buy Cafergot online cod, all you had to do was buy some EA games legitimately" in response to the amount of 'outrage' today against EA for laying off 1500 employees.

Now me, Cafergot pharmacy, Online buying Cafergot, I think that piracy-is-a-bad-thing, it is a violation of a long standing set of laws designed to protect those who create those things that we love against the unscrupulous, where can i order Cafergot without prescription. It's not theft as such, technically anyway, since no-one is actually deprived of anything, but that can be a hard distinction to make, Cafergot For Sale. Ordering Cafergot online, It seems like theft.

But that's where I think Tobold is off base, Cafergot from canadian pharmacy. Online Cafergot without a prescription, There is no real evidence that the people who pirate software, music, Cafergot overnight, Cafergot alternatives, or other media were actually going to buy those things in the first place. So a single act of piracy cannot be logically equated with a lost sale, Cafergot steet value, Cafergot blogs, or a lost amount of revenue or profit. Cafergot For Sale, I'm not sure if anyone even has any statistics on what the ratio of pirated goods to lost sales really is. Is it one in a hundred, where can i buy Cafergot online. Fast shipping Cafergot, Or would one pirate in a thousand have bought that copy if a legitimate sale was the only option.

Having said that, buy Cafergot online no prescription, Generic Cafergot, I do believe that piracy results in lost income, but I don't think it is anywhere near as much as publishers are saying, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal. Canada, mexico, india, In fact, I've seen in print statements made by the RIAA and MPAA where the figures they are stating for lost revenue seem indicate that their ratio is more than a lost sale per act of piracy, purchase Cafergot for sale.  Does that seem a bit strange to you, Cafergot For Sale. Is Cafergot safe, How can you lose more than what was pirated.

Secondly, cheap Cafergot no rx, Cafergot schedule, and as Tobold points out in his post, it is an economic crisis, Cafergot forum. About Cafergot, People haven't just lost jobs and have less disposable income to buy games, a lot of people -- a huge number in fact -- are turning away strongly from using debt to buy things, comprar en línea Cafergot, comprar Cafergot baratos. Order Cafergot online c.o.d, This I think is the first key to EA's financial woes. Cafergot For Sale, Less disposable income plus a reluctance to use credit means people are buying less of everything.

Which leads to the second key to EA's crisis, Cafergot images. Cafergot class, They do a lot, and I mean a huge amount, buy no prescription Cafergot online, of sales of their sports franchise games. They're the only game in town for the US football games, yet each year they produce what is basically the same game with a few enhancements and a set of roster changes. These games also appeal to the more casual gaming sports fan, a fairly giant demographic.

Less disposable income plus a reluctance to use credit plus casual gamers owning the five previous versions of the same game equals cutting out Madden from the discretionary spending, Cafergot For Sale.

The clincher for me is that up until this last year, the game industry reported strong growth year after year. I'm sure you read the reports that said that the computer game industry was going to overtake Hollywood in revenue in just a few short years. This strong growth was all happening at the same time as people were pirating games. Computer game piracy hasn't jumped by 200 percent in 2009 has it. Cafergot For Sale, How much of an increase in piracy would it take to drop revenue by 20 percent, especially considering that those pirates must come from the buying customers. People who would normally buy a game, but have defected across to the pirates.

If nothing else has changed, then EA's woes must surely be the result of something other than piracy.

Saving that programmers job would have been a little more tricky than buying that sixth version of Madden.

By the way, I agree with Tobold on this; Piracy is a crime. It's a bad thing to do. If you want to play a game -- buy it.
