Somehow I missed seeing this video until now. This looks very cool, and while its experience will come down to the finesse of the execution, the video certainly looks promising.

One because it’s genuinely funny, and the other probably only because I’m not a very nice person. You can decide which video is which.

When a huge audience isn’t enough: how Punch Quest tweaked a free-to-play economy into profitability – a good read on pricing options for iOS game developers. Also contains some good thoughts and comments about doing IAP “right”.

Speaking of Diablo 3 and DPS, a recently posted update mentions delays to D3's planned PvP.
While 1v1 is probably worth a look, it was more the team deathmatches which sounded interesting. Of course, that was until I stopped and remembered I don’t actually know anyone playing D3 anymore, so it was never going to fly for me anyway! Still, I’m interested to see what this ends up looking like, and whether there’s a place for the non hardcore (in terms of player skill/time sink, not perma-death sense) player to get anything out of this.
Things like this aren’t going to do much to help gaming take any sort of hold on Macs: How to recreate the MBP Retina low FPS issue
One day everything is working fine, next both games appear to be pretty much unplayable. The fix is pretty simple (reset the SMC chip) however the time taken to troubleshoot things was pretty frustrating. I’ve actually had an issue with the SMC chip needing a restart on my previous laptop, so it seems this sort of thing is fairly common.
My original title for this post was “DPS issues” which was a slip, however accurate as I also have DPS issues in both those games at the moment.

It’s been pasted everywhere already, but hey, it’s a) amusing and worth a post, and b) scary that it’s probably the most effective way to raise awareness around NASA they could think of. Please tell me the latter wasn’t a factor in making this video. Please.

Little late for posting this, but it’s a nice video Blizzard created for WoW’s 8th anniversary. Nostalgia for WoW fans.
Sonder – I liked this.
n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
