[Disclaimer]

Quite a few new visitors here, so figured it was worth giving this part it's own page.

This is my personal blog, and a personal space on the web where I talk about game design, and in particular MMO design. Everything I say here won't necessarily reflect any given element of the games that I, or the company I work for, produce and run. In that sense I am just part of the team that run our games, and my personal opinion or thoughts won't always be the major 'voice' in any given element of our games. This is just a space where I like to discuss gaming, MMOs, community and everything that goes into this genre that so many of us enjoy.

Neither am I the type that believes I am always right, I am pretty much a compulsive devils advocate. Discussion and debate is what drives progress and innovation in any creative industry and I'll never claim my ideas are exclusively 'right', they just happen to be my ideas, thoughts or musings on certain subjects and are invariably written to provoke thought and discussion, not to conclude that my opinion is the 'right' one. That is one of the beauties of getting to work in a creative industry with passionate fans, there are always ideas out there..ideas are always good, even if they don't always come to fruition!

So whether you are a player, interested in some of the things we think about, or a fellow developer pondering the same questions, I encourage you to question what you read, think about it, challenge it, and come to your own conclusions...because that is where progress and better games come from!
