Rift is a better game than SW:TOR

This is a contentious title, I know.

SW:TOR: The Esseles (Flashpoint)

[Spoiler!] I made a Jedi Knight do see if he is more fun than the sage. This is my review of the first Republic Flashpoint, Esseles.

SW:TOR, not a review

Perhaps the most shocking finding is that SW:TOR has exactly the shortcomings that have been predicted by the blogosphere for two years now.

Merry Christmas Everybody

In the coming days you might see some kind of opinion on SW:TOR here. I have very mixed feelings playing this game. But that's because I judge it as an MMO. If you judge it as a normal computer game that costs some 50 Euro it's absolutely worth the money. Just make sure to unsubscribe right after 'subscribing'.

[Economy] Price and Demand

Most people think that, all other things equal, higher prices lead to lower demand. This is obviously wrong for goods which are bought because they cost a lot of money, like wine. But it can also be wrong for another kind of good.

[Sociology] Civil Liberties

The most disturbing recent news I've read was not actually about the Euro. It also wasn't about Iran/Israel or a Chinese recession. It was about Mr. Obama's ability to imprison me indefinitely or even kill me. Just because he desires so.

[Sociology] Global Warming

There's some discussion about global warming going on in another post. So, what harm could a small post by me do, except for increasing the spam in my blog's mailbox :)

[Economy] Markets

Over the last few days I have had a few discussions about the latest attempt to 'fix the Euro'.

Different Opinions

Few things in life are as incredible as the fact that people can hold radically different opinions. It honestly always amazes me. The latest impressive examples were the posts about international politics. But the same phenomenon can be experienced in all parts of life, including of course, MMORPGs.
