NCWest – or how to fail the market

without comments. What is your opinion?

Adam Martin, former lead programmer at NCsoft, wrote a good article about all the NCSoft/NCWest re-structurs: NCWest: Stage 1 complete; Farewell, European MMO Industry! After reading it you can rather easily predict the future and (failing the way to) success for upcomming NCWest titles (like Aion: The Tower of Eternity) in Europe and America (in the long run). At least they stick with their tradition of miserable-at-best/non-existing Customer-Support and being deaf when it comes to listening to concerns from their Communities/Customers.

Demigod Beta 1 Release

without comments. What is your opinion?

Demigod = DotA for the masses? Picture a PC RTS where the player controls a single, gigantic hero unit–an RTS/action-RPG hybrid. Each side has an automatically-spawning horde of minor units, with the Demigod’s task being to either direct them to a specific location, or impact the battle to the point that your side eventually overtakes the opposing enemy.
