Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling

I have not given up on blogging, despite all appearances to the contrary. It’s just that, well, I’ve been busy.

Lots of great stuff going on at work. As you may have heard, we announced our first product and have been talking about it at various shows. I know many of you are anxious for more news on the MMO, but our promotional efforts are focused on the RPG right now. All good things to those who wait.

If it counts for anything, I have started (or thought about starting) several articles over the past few months, but never finished writing them for one reason or another. So for your own amusement, please pretend that you read timely, thought-provoking, and highly entertaining posts on the following topics:

  • Are used video game sales a blight upon the industry?
  • The subscription MMO isn’t going anywhere
  • “Truth, Lies, and Frogloks: A Cautionary Tale”
  • Please buy me an iPad

That last one isn’t really an article; I’d just love for someone to buy me an iPad.

But honestly, you should really be grateful that you’re getting a break from my ramblings. You’ll probably be sick of me again soon enough.

Speaking of which, I’ll be on a panel at GDC Online next month talking about transmedia stories. Looking forward to it!

  1. “I know many of you are anxious for more news on the MMO, but our promotional efforts are focused on the RPG right now”

    I don’t really believe the MMO will ever happen at this point, but especially so if the RPG doesn’t go yard. And what promotional efforts? That generic video? Another piece of concept art?

  2. Interesting that you chose the 1st line of “High Noon” as your post title. I can’t help but wonder if that’s supposed to be a clue about something. Or it could just be that you’re torn between duty (work) and love (of blogging), just as the song describes. Guess I shouldn’t overthink things, no?

    And believe me, I can completely see the “Truth, Lies, and Frogloks” post in my mind already ;)

  3. I bet you can’t.

    Actually, I chose the title because it’s the name of an episode of The Prisoner. I had no idea they stole the title from High Noon, but that makes perfect sense!

  4. 1) No. Just like used car sales are not a blight on car companies.
    2) I agree but… I think the question is the “pure” subscription mmo dead, in which case I’d say yes. Hybrid sub/micro is the future.
    3) Is it why you should never acccept a “temporary relocation to rathe mountains” because it means you’ll get stuck there? Poor frogs.
    4) I just bought an m11x mostly based on your glowing review. Trust me, the iPad is nice but it’s development has stalled and I’d wait for apple to release gen2.

    P.S. Post more! Hire an assistant to evangelize the RPG!
