Quotes

"I wish the national media would stop letting these DDOS trolls occasional use of the ISIS crap be taken seriously," he tweeted. "Seeing news accounts that make it sound like that's serious."
...like PlayFab is clear," said Lei Zhang, general manager at Chukong, maker of the Cocos2d-x engine, the most widely used game engine in China. "Thanks to widespread adoption of tools like Cocos2d-x, no developer today would dream of building their own game engine. But today, game developers still need to spend too much of their time re-inventing server technologies, time that they could otherwise spend on their games. We look forward to a long partnership with PlayFab and integrating its services directly into Cocos Studio."
...in my career, and it's hard to get them right," said Patrick Wyatt, ArenaNet co-founder, former VP of Blizzard, and PlayFab advisor and investor. "The game industry is ripe for the kind of back-end services that PlayFab is providing, which are going to make building reliable online games a whole lot easier and faster."
"We plan to conduct closed beta-tests for our new gun-shooting action game ‘Metal Black Alternative' in the latter half of this year," Kim said. "Another closed beta-test is scheduled for our much-anticipated title ‘Lineage Eternal' in the coming winter."
