World of Warcraft vs. Age of Conan

November 25th, 2009 Comments off

Age of Conan is a quite popular game these days; however, World of Warcraft is still the most popular massive multiplayer online role-playing game. If we would want to decide which of them is a better game, we should probably look at their combat system as combat is the largest part of such games. First of all, to decide which combat system is better we have to understand what combat system both games have. Age of Conan uses the so-called Real Combat System, which requires you to press direction keys to make combos, while world of Warcraft uses a skill based system, where you click on specific skill with your mouse button. In the end, the difference is that AoC combat is faster paced, while WoW combat requires more strategy, as you have to decide which skills to use in which situations.

Anyway, can we easily decide which combat system is better than? I believe that AoC will appeal more to action oriented gamers, while WoW to more strategically oriented gamers. This is quite a surprising conclusion, as according to my analysis AoC will appeal to younger players, but this game is mainly aimed at adults. As a matter of fact, players need to be 18 years old to play AoC.

Unsuccessful Blogs

November 19th, 2009 Comments off

Is there any particular reason there are so many unsuccessful blogs? This is a broad topic, but I thought I would shed some light on it, since there are a lot more unsuccessful blogs than successful ones. The fact that a lot of them are unsuccessful can be proven quite easily, because most of them are abandoned. There are some common reasons this happens, and here are some things you can do to avoid it:

-Focus on your visitors. Your thoughts are important as well, but what do the visitors think about your site? Do they have any requests or wishes?
-Make sure your blog has a purpose. If you do not have a clear purpose of what you are trying to achieve, then how can you achieve anything? You can use your website to spread your work, thoughts, educate your readers, or for many other reasons, but remember why you are actually doing it. This should keep you on the right track.
-Avoid poor marketing. When it comes to a brick and mortar business, customers will be able to see your business near other stores, or near busy streets. This way the news about your company can spread quickly. On the other hand, if you do not market your blog, then the chances are that nobody is going to visit it. It will be like placing your business in a middle of a forest, where the only visitors that come are those who wander there by accident.

Video Game Console Battle

November 18th, 2009 Comments off

Video games became increasingly popular during the last two decades. More and more people play video games because they are relatively inexpensive and offer a lot of entertainment. There are a few consoles that compete with each other for the supremacy of the console market. Those consoles are PS3, Nintendo Wii, and Xbox 360. Behind these consoles stand powerful companies such as Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. It is safe to say that Xbox 360 dominated the market in 2006, while Nintendo Wii was winning the battle during 2007-2009. While for some it might be a puzzle why that happened, I think it is quite clear that the low price of Nintendo Wii and an abundance of games attracted many customers. Analysts are wondering how year 2010 will look like, and some say that Playstation 3 will dominate, as they cut prices and introduce new games. Since Playstation and Playstation 2 were so popular a few years ago, I think that we can trust Sony to make the right decisions and have a more aggressive strategy.

Anyway, all consoles reported millions of copies sold, and that might seem odd taking into account that the global economy is in a recession. However, when you take into account that games offer hundreds of hours of entertainment, it will be clear that they are an excellent hobby in our times. Other forms of entertainment are a lot more expensive like, for example, going to cinemas, restaurants, or clubs. Playing video games on the other hand is relatively inexpensive.

Many of you have probably seen a MyBlogLog widget before. It is a widget displaying pictures of your most recent visitors who are registered at MyBlogLog.

You can change the size of picture, background color, text color, width, rows title, and other things.
