Allakhazam.com ... sold out to IGE for roughly $7-10 million.
if the fan sites sell / make / are worth that much, figure how much $ the MMOGs themselves make.

And people wonder why everyone and his hamster are developing new mmogs.

You should have known that corporations would never allow MythTV to exist for very long. Nothing is free under capitalism. Maybe commercial listings are available on bittorrent?

Wonder if he's ever considered writing some kind of Ultima: Redux or Ultima: Epilogue that re-visits and re-examines the themes and storyarc of IV-VII, but from a perspective of 20 years worth of life experience and hindsight.

Ultima's ethical parables and moral explorations were phenomenal.

whats the problem???
that's the typical work schedule of the average game programmer!!!
It was an hour before midnight, three hours into the night shift with nine more to go. At his workstation in a small, fluorescent-lighted office space in (Santa Clara), (John Doe) sat shirtless and chain-smoking, gazing purposefully at the (in-circuit emulator) in front of him. Twelve hours a night, seven nights a week, with only two or three nights off per month, this is what John does — for a living.
Seriously.

too easy, no challenge at all.

I dare any game company that thinks it's all edgy and hard core flaunters of authority (Running With Scissors, Rockstar, ?) to make a level out of the Dome of the Rock or the nearby Al-Aqsa Mosque, or better yet as suggested, use it as a strip club or casino.

we can do things with the social environment," said Blaise Aguera y Arcas of Microsoft Live Labs during a presentation of the technology at the annual TED convention this spring. "This is now taking data from everybody from the entire collective memory, visually, of what the world looks like and link[ing] all of that together. … And they make something emergent that's greater than the sum of the parts."
O Ya. It'll either be used for:
A) A paradigm shift in the evolution of the collective unconscious.
or
B) 3D pr0n.

Hey, how about this, if devs want to be "edgy",
instead of a Cathedral how about...

a MOSQUE?
not just any old mosque, but one belonging to the Wahabi sect!

bwahahaha any bets on how long the developers would live after they defiled a Holy site of Allah / Mohammad ?

Has Sony ever made a level from the actual Sony Corp floorplans?
Would a virtual firefight in the CEO's office be frowned upon?

The core LotRO audience, ie. the fans that the game is made for, seem generally pleased with the state and progress of the game. Free players leaving to jump on the next free mmog? Good. They added nothing to the community and won't be missed.

AC1 at it's peak was the best GM Event & Storytelling mmog around. If Turbine can incorporate those great elements into LotRO it will have a profitable player base for many years.

As for niche status, every mmog will be considered niche except for The One "Big" Game - which used to be EQ, now it's WoW, next it may be Warhammer Online. Everything else from Tabula Rasa to Age of Conan to Pirates of the Burning Sea to Gods and Heroes will be niche by comparison.

plus will one need to upgrade AGAIN just to play it on the PC?
or will an Oblivion uber-machine be adequate?

maybe influenced by this?:
Fatherland is a bestselling 1992 thriller novel by the English writer and journalist Robert Harris, which doubles as a work of alternate history. The novel is based on the premise of a world in which Nazi Germany was triumphant in World War II.
and/or this?:

"What many of us have come to understand is that these H-1B visas are not being used to supplement the American workforce where we have shortages but, rather, H1-B visas are being used to replace American workers with lower cost foreign workers."
***GASP!***

In other startling news, it turns out the pope is catholic!

I hate (M)NPR with a passion.
that's ok, they feel the same about you/your profession too.

If it's still on Minn NPR, "A Prarie Home Companion" is wonderful, best storytelling EVER, Garrison Keeler captures the essence of growing up in the midwest perfectly.
