Destiny Could Have Learned a Thing or Two from World of Warcraft

The first-person shooter lacks the soul that kept people interested in the most successful MMORPG ever created

What if Activision used all the resources it poured into Destiny to promote World of Warcraft?

It's a simple question that has pretty deep ramifications when you think about it. World of Warcraft is the most successful game the company owns, and has raked in billions since its release.

What's more, the game came out 10 years ago, and it defined a genre. While not the first entry in the massively multiplayer online role-playing game arena, it's definitely the most influential, by far.

All the games that came out after it tried to emulate the engrossing...

Minecraft Will Be Changed by Microsoft Interference

The title might no longer appeal to old fans

Microsoft has bought Mojang for 2.5 billion dollars (1.74 billion Euro) and that means Minecraft is now in the hands of the company which created the Xbox One and the 360, a move that will probably affect the gaming industry for a long time to come.

Rumors about the transaction had been flowing for a few days before the official confirmation, and both companies have stressed the fact that the indie title will not be removed from any platform in the coming months and will continue to get access to new content and updates.

Markus Persson, aka Notch, and the other founders of Mo...

A Free Windows OS Could Be the Weapon to Fight Linux Adoption Trend

City administration switching to Linux is not really an issue for Microsoft if they plan to release a free Windows OS

Microsoft seems to be losing ground in various cities around the world in a fierce fight against open source and Linux, but is it really?

I would have expected for Microsoft to put up more of a fight before losing the support from various city administrations around the world, but that isn't the case. Sure enough, the losses are not all that big for a company like Microsoft. Not having several tens of thousands of machines with Windows is not a big problem in the grand scheme of things, it's more like a PR issue.

Microsoft and its products are still present in lots of...

Nicki Minaj Has Implants in Her Posterior, and That Is Killing the Music Industry

The singer gets caught in a concert photo in a pose that proves her “anaconda” is fake, despite what she might have said

Most people out there who are not up to date with the ins and outs of the current music industry, the people who just pick up on new music on the radio while on their way to work, will tell you that Nicki Minaj came out of nowhere in the charts but that she's now an easily-recognizable figure.

The main reason for that is her ample posterior, though the word “ample” does not suffice anymore. We would use such a word to describe Jennifer Lopez's posterior (remember when JLo's body was all the rage?), but the same one can't apply to Nicki Minaj's posterior, be...

Would You Settle for the First or the Best?

Being the first is good; being the best is much better

Do you remember the so-called smartphones from 2006? All buttons, smaller screen, or the big Nokia Communicator. They were the first ones to bring the idea of a smart phone to the market and we even had a few apps for them.

Going even further back, do you remember the mp3 players of 2001? How about the ones from 2006? They were all the same, and whoever wanted to get away from iTunes was choosing USB players with a small LCD screen and 6 buttons to help you navigate your library. 

A change in their speech

iPod or iPhone were not the first devices to bring a ...

Microsoft's Acquisition of Minecraft and Mojang Makes Sense

Microsoft might spend $2 billion (€1.5 billion), but it can make a lot more money by developing the popular game

Without a doubt, the second biggest news story from the last week, besides the launch of Destiny, is the report that Microsoft is looking to acquire Mojang, the independent studio that makes and owns Minecraft, the hugely successful survival and crafting game.

The report surfaced from a respectable outlet and was immediately solidified from other additional sources, bringing forth even more information about the deal that's supposedly still in the process of being constructed, before its eventual signing by both parties.

Minecraft is a phenomenon

Our Fascination with Jack the Ripper Explained

Earlier this week, the serial killer once again made headline after a detective announced he had discovered his identity

It’s been decades since the vicious serial killer that came to be known to the world as Jack the Ripper walked the streets of London, yet our fascination with him is just as strong as it was when he first started butchering women, if not stronger. 

Case in point, it was earlier this week that Jack the Ripper once again made headlines. This time, it happened because a man best described as an armchair detective announced to the world that he had discovered the killer’s identity. 

I don’t know about you, but I have to admit that I cannot help but won...
