15 Minutes of Fame: MIT Media Lab director Joichi Ito on WoW {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2011 7:34PM Wow, two responses with tacky comments about a woman in a photograph. Stay classy, Warcraft community.

15 Minutes of Fame: MIT Media Lab director Joichi Ito on WoW {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2011 4:04PM Hey, I'm in that photo; that's me in the watermelon shirt. Even better, I beat Joi to the Media Lab by some 14 years. Way to catch up, Jonkichi! I kid. Joi's a great leader and a very interesting guy. Looking forward to see how he shapes the Media Lab.

From Azeroth to Canada: Tracking down a fugitive in World of Warcraft {Massively}

Dec 31st 2009 4:02PM I'm genuinely surprised at how people here don't see any problem with Blizzard handing over the information. Key thing here: the requester had no legal right to demand the data. He just asked politely and Blizzard said "ok". Maybe this guy needed to be arrested. But what if it was a P.I. asking for that same information? Someone's mom? Someone's abusive ex-husband?

Two key points from the article for the tl;dr crowd. One: he's a wanted fugitive, not a convicted felon. Two: there was no subpoena. Blizzard had no requirement to comply with the request, it chose to. They may have made the right call in this case, but do you want to trust them to do that in every case? Does Blizzard want the liability?.

From Azeroth to Canada: Tracking down a fugitive in World of Warcraft {Massively}

Dec 31st 2009 1:29PM Wait, Blizzard violated a customer's privacy to an unauthorized law enforcement agency? That's outrageous.

BioWare reveals Samara, Mass Effect 2's biotic bombshell {Joystiq}

Dec 1st 2009 12:27PM What, a hot alien girl with impossibly round breasts who wants to do whatever you ask of her? Way to break new ground, BioWare.

Rumor: 80 more layoffs hit Mythic {Massively}

Nov 9th 2009 6:15PM I've been wondering whether there'd ever be an announcement of major expansion content. I guess this is our answer.

Nate Levy explains WAR's action point fix {Massively}

Oct 27th 2009 7:40PM It's easy, CCon99! See, the major game changing bug was unnoticed because it was masked by the major game-destroying server lag!

Champions Online gives away a free retcon {Massively}

Oct 27th 2009 12:21PM Alternately, you can buy a retcon for $12.50. What you can't do is easily retcon entirely in-game; a full retcon is too expensive in game currency. It's a pretty gamer-hostile way to do microtransactions.

Aion open beta client now available for download {Massively}

Aug 28th 2009 11:53AM I sure wish more games would distribute via BitTorrent. It's very good at downloading giant files over several days, much better than the gamer-hostile sites like FilePlanet. The Aion installer is 9 gigs; wow.

Win your very own Cities XL beta key through Massively! [Updated] {Massively}

Jun 18th 2009 11:25AM I'm looking forward to seeing collaborative design of urban landscapes. There's all sorts of precedents for groups of people doing architecture together: isometric city building websites, in particular. I can't wait to see what happens with a real game.

Would love a beta key. They'll be available in the US?
