Researcher Trolls MMO, Surprised When Players Hate Him

nausea_malvarma Re:Well duh... (895 comments)

There's a certain degree of skill involved when doing certain activities inside the game. When you do certain activities inside the game, you meet individuals doing similar activities to yours.

Skill? I never played city of heroes before, but in most mmo's I've encountered, skill is irrelevant. Whoever wins is whoever has the best items, highest level, or most devastating abilities - all of which come about from playing the game and building your character. In otherwords, progress-quest. And plenty of mmo's are progress quests at their core. What makes them more exciting than a progress bar and a level count is the rich world to explore, the camaraderie of being in a guild, the fun of defeating real life enemies.... in other words, the IRC like aspects of play.

Researcher Trolls MMO, Surprised When Players Hate Him

nausea_malvarma Re:Full Court Press (895 comments)

Maybe I'm a bit biased because I don't follow the NBA. I only know in the recreational games I've participated in, Full Court press (or any odd tactic for that matter) gets you dissed a lot. I played a lot of boxball in high school, and tactics like the overhand spike had the same stigma attached.

nausea_malvarma Re:within the rules doesnt mean its within the rul (895 comments)

I don't understand your complaint. There is no question that Twixt broke no rules.. only social convention. Must we all conform to social convention?

nausea_malvarma Full Court Press (895 comments)

Some of the tactics used by this researcher remind me of the full court press in basketball. The rules of basketball allow a full court press, yet to do so never crosses the mind of most players. Playing one side of the court at a time is convention. The full court press is extremely effective, yet if you use it, the other team will no doubt call your win "cheap".

Still, when you are the underdog, and must win at all costs, the press is your only option. I sympathize with those who use it (and recognize that it isn't easy to pull off either).

If people complain that a tactic is cheap, it's really not the fault of the player, but the fault of the game. Past slashdot postings are full of examples where players exploited loopholes in city of heroes (remember the article about player-created missions?). With this in mind, I think it's obvious that City of Heroes was poorly designed to begin with. Game designers should never assume players will be on their best behavior.

Mark Cuban heard that Chris Anderson and Malcom Gladwell were arguing about businesses giving things away for free, and felt jealous because nobody was paying attention to him, so he decided to complain.

If You Live By Free, You Will Die By Free

nausea_malvarma Re:Read more of his blog, good sir (251 comments)

The reason people upload so many "mundane crap videos" is because there is not a fee.

You underestimate what steps an attention whore will take to get their mundane crap viewed by millions.

Railway Workers Get Daily Smile Scans

nausea_malvarma Japanese culture aside, (385 comments)

...what is wrong with being sad? Why must we be happy all the time? Sometimes sadness is a natural response to the sad things in the world. If something is wrong, I don't want to pretend to be happy about it. Sadness tells us something is wrong, and motivates us to do something about it.

I understand employees are expected to smile more in japan out of politeness, but why force employees to smile harder? If they aren't smiling, perhaps the problem is their job. A sure way to encourage smiling is to treat employees better, and make them feel loved.

Why Amazon's Kindle Should Use Open Standards

nausea_malvarma Re:I wouldn't publish on Kindle if it was Open (315 comments)

Once the Internet community stops (I know it isn't everyone but it is enough to be a major problem) stealing content created by artists

Hahahahahaha! Never gonna happen! :-)

When information is this easy to copy, we'll never see the end to piracy. All you can do is accept it, and adapt to the new digital world, where information wants to be worthless.

No way on Earth I would work hard writing or creating something to have it passed around the Internet for free. I create for my own profit, not your entertainment.

Good to know you have artistic integrity /sarcasm

Seriously... make art because you enjoy it. Many great artists never saw a cent from their work.
