Service Denied: The Latest DDoS Attack

August 25, 2014


Saturday night I had an interesting experience.  I was sitting on the couch in my house with a beer in one hand and my Apple iPad in the other and was enjoying a nice quiet evening with a couple of quick Hearthstone matches… when all of a sudden, the game froze and refused to budge.  Earlier that evening, […]

WATCH_DOGS: Hype and Tribulations

May 28, 2014


    It seems that bug filled launches are becoming the social norm for video game companies as time progresses.  Studio deadlines become shorter and shorter as companies want the product in the consumer’s hands as fast as possible to maximize profits at the expense of players and the play experience.  There is a reason […]

Blizzcon 2013 Wrap-up
