Comment Re:Will WB be able to do better than past releases (Score 1) 57

LOTRO had quite a bit of hype behind it on launch, but never really took off (wasn't sufficiently different from WoW to make an impact ...)

What makes you say LOTRO didn't really take off? Multiple expansions later, it's still a very cool game with tons of players (though Turbine doesn't release subscriber numbers). If you mean that it isn't as popular as WoW, I'm sure you're right. But with 11 active servers (including decent European presence) and a 4 year run so far, I'd argue that it definitely "took off".

Don't get too excited about those names - broad names for patents like that are commonplace and typically have no deep meaning. It's the "claims" section of the patent that really matters.

Lots of patent titles look like "Cellular Handset with a Keypad" or "Computer System with Removable Media", without any broad claims at all. Just an odd naming convention. :)

Research is to see what everybody else has seen, and think what nobody else has thought.
