I’m not a frequent MMOG player. The one MMOG game I played so far is an online racing game called PopKart. Originally named Crazyracing Kartrider, the game is a hit in Korea and China as well as some Southeast Asian countries. It is currently not officially released in North America. Since it is not as popular and well-known as WOW, I would like to give a brief introduction to those who are not familiar with the game.

Despite the unfortunate absence from the final presentation, my experience in the project Vision by Proxy is a great one. The game turned out to be a greater game than what I thought it would be when we first start the project.

Though the game’s setting maybe fictional, it none-the-less achieves exceptional level of realism by... Continue reading

The origin of chess can be traced back to India in the 6th century. As the game evolved with the name of “Chaturanga” and then “Shatranj” around 600 D.C, it was taken up by Persian and later by Arabs through trade and warfare. The examples of some early description of the game from Birth of the Chess Queen show how the game was heavily associated with royalties and nobles of the time. The game is most commonly described to be either invented by royalty--such as in the two stories about the origin of chess from the Book of Kings (Shar-nameb)—or... Continue reading
