What else can I say? A whole lot. Incompetence is a word that has dogged Hellgate: London from the day when Electronic Arts and Flagship thought that a subscription on a Diablo clone would be a guaranteed money maker. Following the completely timely demise of Flagship Studios and the departure of Bill Roper to a career of bankrupting other developers through sheer greed, Hellgate traded hands over to the less incompetent grasp of T3Fun and publisher Hanbitsoft, continuing support in Korea and even releasing expansion content. Hanbitsoft relaunched Hellgate in the west in 2014 and almost immediately put the game on life support until 2016 when the servers finally shut down.

Take video games, for example, because this is an MMO site and we talk about them quite a lot. A game that you enjoyed 10 or 20 years ago might be absolutely horrid to you now because it lacks a lot of features that have become commonplace in the meantime (personally, I’m always irked that my console JRPG characters don’t regen health after battles). Then again, these games might hold up well and pass the test of time. As much as we whine and moan about the seeming lack of progress in MMOs, the truth is that in many ways, we used to have it so much worse back in the earlier days of the … [Read more...] about Perfect Ten: MMO problems we don’t really have these days
Bitcoin is back in news again after trading at a record high of $4483 per coin this month. Many cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin are powered by a technology known as blockchain, and its potential use cases extends far beyond just the financial world—it continues to find use in government, healthcare, real estate, security, and many other industries. At events and in publications that cover the advertising industry, blockchain has been a hot topic as a candidate for bringing in more transparency into ad tech and solving problems such as opaque supply chains and ad fraud, how much of it is hype and what are the facts? Before getting into how blockchain could help ad tech, let’s understand what it is and how it works. Each “block” in a blockchain typically contains a hash pointer to the previous block, timestamp, and transaction data. A blockchain is a growing list of records, or blocks, linked together and secured by cryptography.
