Luke S's Blog

 

Greetings, I'm an Operations Management student (second degree) in my thirties, with over a decade of project management and information science experience under my belt. I have worked for community arts organisations, my provincial university, and a global energy company.

My academic research in Commerce has an emphasis on the Asia-Pacific marketplace, and more broadly on international trade. I speak and write a modest amount of Japanese.

I'm attempting to get an intership with BioWare to further my academic and professional goals. One possible focus is studying how successful Asian MMO / mobile philosophies and microtransaction models are influencing western markets. E.g. As seen with Perfect World Entertainment's acquisition of Cryptic, Runic, and Zombie.

As a relatively new EVE player 6 months I understand where this perception comes from. And perhaps you even speak from experience rather than generalisations. However, that makes your assertions no more accurate than if I declared all Gamasutra users with Calvin Hobbes avatars, have names that are difficult to ...

In other news, the CHEETAHMEN II remake got funded. And Greg Pabich is just a GAME ENTREPRENEUR . r n r nMan knows how to make a pitch video, that 's for sure.

I think the current state of JC Penney is an important read for any developer/publisher concerned about the impact sales have. Because they are vital to good consumerism business. http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-05-24/remaking-j-dot-c-dot-penney-without-coupons r n r nThe tl dr summary is this: Consumers want to see a bargain, not trust they 're getting ...
