I assume he means going behind the back of developers to cause them to fail and take their places I don 't know myself. r n r nRamin, what does it mean

I was thinking about this ...

I was thinking about this topic just a few days ago. I think the real pattern here is to deliver something of real value alongside the platform. It 's the exact same problem with trying to create a new console. There are two types of challenges: technical challenges and marketing ...

Okay, I 've got a ...

Okay, I 've got a lot to say here. First off, this post is basically what I 've been saying for the past half-year, point-for-point, and I 'm glad someone as big as you has brought back attention to it although admittedly this is on the mind of a very ...

Paradox is a great publisher, and their execution on their vision has been very smart over the past few years, with lots of growth and win-wins across the board.

Thank you for your article ...

Thank you for your article Ramin. Looking forward to part 2. The more time passes, the less I appreciate games as a cultural and artistic venue for humanity and more cynical as a business that tricks people into paying money.

I could have sworn I had heard the news of Stingray getting discontinued many months ago. Feels like deja vu. Anyway, I felt sad then, and I still feel that Stingray missed a golden opportunity. The integration of tools that they could have provided was a very strong point, they ...

As I had expected and ...

As I had expected and told you at your previous article, the line between what you 'd consider Lightside and Darkside F2P is not one of a checklist of features, but of a broad subjective impression on part of the end user. I find it ironically fitting that you also ...

It 's worth asking, what 's wrong with microtransactions What makes them evil You 're writing positively of DLC now, but just a few years ago that was also considered consumer unfriendly and evil as well. Even if you have problems with how lootboxes work in certain game, what 's ...

Having read your previous work, I know Ramin that you are a free-to-play advocate. Why then are you joining the F2P hate train r n r nThe difference between what you consider Dark Side and Light Side monetizations are quite frankly very blurry. I don 't think there 's a ...

We actually didn 't need Blizzard confirming anything. Like any subject for science, it 's entirely possible to empirically study, which players already had done. By every 10 packs you 're guaranteed an epic, and by 40 packs you 're guaranteed a legendary. r n r nThis makes Hearthstone 's ...
