So, when you publish an MMO called Vendetta Online, it’s only natural that you’d want your [...]

Raft Pirates Now Pirating Androids

Tweet I realize there’s a significant problem with stolen apps and jailbroken phones and pirated software, and so I don’t lightly make the suggestion that more piracy on the Android is a good thing.

So, when someone like TriplePoint client 6waves releases a new pirate-themed MMO, Raft Pirates, and promises a persistent world, that’s a double-edged sword: your loot doesn’t stay safe just because you’re not logged in. If you don’t [...]

Empire Online: Expanding My Gaming Empire

Tweet Before I began working in the gaming industry, video games occupied a very traditional space in my brain. I would go home, sit down in front of the TV with a cup of tea or hot chocolate, pick up that controller and lose myself in a fantasy world. Zelda, Final Fantasy, and Kingdom Hearts [...]
