Rhode Island Now Owns a Video Game Company

Posted by | May 28, 2012

The game company behind Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, one 38 Studios, has suffered a critical existence failure.

The lesson? Do your homework, and don’t be seduced into spending more than you can afford on an MMO. CNN has the story.

    Remember, kids. Blizzard can make a powerful juggernaut of an MMO because they have years of successful products, good will, and solid business practices behind them. If your resume consists of one game that released into direct competition with Skyrim, maybe you should hold off on any expensive MMO gambles.
