Editor’s note: The chair being reviewed was provided by Ewinracing Corp. Those of you who read MMO Fallout know that I am the prime authority on activities involving sitting on your duff. By day I am just a mild mannered MMO reporter, so I spend a lot of time typing on my laptop. Also by day I am a student attorney which means doing a lot of legal research, sitting in court, writing up stuff, and you guessed it…sitting down while I do those things. As a six-figured debted student, my history of chairs has generally fallen into the “what’s on clearance at Office Max” stack, chairs that are not exactly ergonomic, don’t provide lumbar support, and cost less than a new video game for a very good reason (low quality). Unsurprisingly, I’ve had some back problems arise from this. So you can imagine my excitement when Ewinracing Corp reached out and wanted to talk business. If you don’t know who Ewinracing is, they sell those gaming chairs you … [Read more...] about MMO Fallout Reviews the EWin Champion Gamer Chair

As part of my New Year’s commitment to MMORPG gaming, I promised to finally give Final Fantasy XIV a proper go. And, over the last few weeks, that’s exactly what I’ve done. I’ve raced around Eorzea on a heroic adventure, uncovered sinister plots, and saved the world countless times. Even as an FFXIV latecomer, I’ve had a blast. But that’s not everything. I’ve also started working on secondary classes, dug into the crafting system, pledged my allegiance to a Grand Company, and even bought an apartment. There’s a heck of a lot to do in FFXIV, and I’ve been desperately trying to sample as much of it as possible. However, all this got me thinking: just how many people are in a similar boat? There’s a lack of good-quality and story-driven MMOs right now, and FFXIV promises to fill that niche in a major way. But is A Realm Reborn still worth trying some four years and two expansions later? To answer that question, I’ve put … [Read more...] about Final Fantasy XIV: The Latecomer Review
Activision-Blizzard had a rough week of its own making, as it announced record-high revenue for the year and in the same moment began laying off around 800 employees. Outrage across the gaming industry was fierce enough to provoke the anger of not just the video game unionization group but the AFL-CIO too, the former of which demanded Bobby Kotick’s resignation and the latter of which urged game developers to unionize. Piggybacking on the bad news, or maybe hiding in its shadow, was Daybreak, which delayed the launch of PlanetSide Arena again, this time into summer 2019, and it topped that off by refunding everyone who’d preordered the game. At least somebody’s having a good week. That somebody is EA, thanks almost entirely to Apex Legends, though Anthem’s been no slouch either. In more meta news, we introduced another new column in time for our birthday. Read on to catch up with the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions today as every Sunday … [Read more...] about MMO Week in Review: The week when EA looked like the good guy
Review of: Shopify Reviewed by: Preethi Anusha Rating: 4.5 On August 2, 2015 Last modified:August 8, 2015 Summary: Shopify dodges all such services with its well thought system that is not confined to providing a way to setup the site, but also helps manage the store with utmost easy. It in my opinion Shopify is an eCommerce ecosystem. A leading information technology research and advisory company predicts that the Indian eCommerce revenue will reach $6 Billion in 2015; a whopping 70% increase over that of 2014. And not very different is the case with global eCommerce. You must be wondering how this matters to you. Now imagine your business making just about 0.01% of the projected 1 billion USD. You’ll be earning $100,000. Now thats huge! Pretty must the annual salary of engineers slogging in the silicon valley. Going through these stats, I thought – Oh boy. Its got to be really expensive and tough to put up an eCommerce website. But I was so surprised … [Read more...] about Shopify Review – Does Shopify Qualify to be Your eCommerce Partner?
