Networking and Online Games by Grenville Armitage,Mark Claypool,Philip Branch Book Resume:

The computer game industry is clearly growing in the direction of multiplayer, online games. Understanding the demands of games on IP (Internet Protocol) networks is essential for ISP (Internet Service Provider) engineers to develop appropriate IP services. Correspondingly, knowledge of the underlying network's capabilities is vital for game developers. Networking and Online Games concisely draws together and illustrates the overlapping and interacting technical concerns of these sectors. The text explains the principles behind modern multiplayer communication systems and the techniques underlying contemporary networked games. The traffic patterns that modern games impose on networks, and how network performance and service level limitations impact on game designers and player experiences, are covered in-depth, giving the reader the knowledge necessary to develop better gaming products and network services. Examples of real-world multiplayer online games illustrate the theory throughout. Networking and Online Games: Provides a comprehensive, cutting-edge guide to the development and service provision needs of online, networked games. Contrasts the considerations of ISPs (e.g. predicting traffic loads) with those of game developers (e.g. sources of lag/jitter), clarifying coinciding requirements. Explains how different technologies such as cable, ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) and wireless, etc., affect online game-play experience, and how different game styles impose varying traffic dynamics and requirements on the network. Discusses future directions brought by emerging technologies such as UMTS (Universal Mobile Telephone Service), GPRS (General Packet Radio Service), Wireless LANs, IP service Quality, and NAPT/NAT (Network Address Port Translation/Network Address Translation) Illustrates the concepts using high-level examples of existing multiplayer online games (such as Quake III Arena, Wolfenstein Enemy Territory, and Half-Life 2). Networking and Online Games will be an invaluable resource for games developers, engineers and technicians at Internet Service Providers, as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Multimedia Engineering.

Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games by R.V. Kelly 2 Book Resume:

This book is about the fastest growing form of electronic game in the world—the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). The evolution of these self-contained three-dimensional virtual worlds, often inhabited by thousands of players, is described here. This work also delves into the psychology of the people who inhabit the game universe and explores the development of the unique cultures, economies, moral codes, and slang in these virtual communities.

Multiplayer Online Games by Guo Freeman Book Resume:

Multiplayer Online Games (MOGs) have become a new genre of "play culture," integrating communication and entertainment in a playful, computer-mediated environment that evolves through user interaction. This book comprehensively reviews the origins, players, and social dynamics of MOGs, as well as six major empirical research methods used in previous works to study MOGs (i.e., observation/ethnography, survey/interviews, content and discourse analysis, experiments, network analysis, and case studies). It concludes that MOGs represent a highly sophisticated, networked, multimedia and multimodal Internet technology, which can construct entertaining, simultaneous, persistent social virtual worlds for gamers. Overall, the book shows that what we can learn from MOGs is how games and gaming, as ubiquitous activities, fit into ordinary life in today’s information society, in the moments where the increased use of media as entertainment, the widespread application of networked information technologies, and participation in new social experiences intersect.

Online Multiplayer Games by William Sims Bainbridge Book Resume:

This lecture introduces fundamental principles of online multiplayer games, primarily massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs), suitable for students and faculty interested both in designing games and in doing research on them. The general focus is human-centered computing, which includes many human-computer interaction issues and emphasizes social computing, but also, looks at how the design of socio-economic interactions extends our traditional notions of computer programming to cover human beings as well as machines. In addition, it demonstrates a range of social science research methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative, that could be used by students for term papers, or by their professors for publications. In addition to drawing upon a rich literature about these games, this lecture is based on thousands of hours of first-hand research experience inside many classic examples, including World of Warcraft, The Matrix Online, Anarchy Online, Tabula Rasa, Entropia Universe, Dark Age of Camelot, Age of Conan, Lord of the Rings Online, Tale in the Desert, EVE Online, Star Wars Galaxies, Pirates of the Burning Sea, and the non-game virtual world Second Life. Among the topics covered are historical-cultural origins of leading games, technical constraints that shape the experience, rolecoding and social control, player personality and motivation, relationships with avatars and characters, virtual professions and economies, social relations inside games, and the implications for the external society.

INVESTING CARDANO JUST LIKES PLAYING A MULTIPLAYER ONLINE GAME by Kelvin Trinh Book Resume:

Blockchain is an amazing technology. Technology of the future. And representing Blockchain technology in financial payment is Bitcoin and other Alt Coins. Five years ago Bitcoin went to $20,000 and then dropped to $3,000, making everyone panic. April 2021 Bitcoin once again surpassed $20,000 and reached the $64,000 mark, making the financial world almost explode in terms of the return that investing in it brings. Not to mention other Alt Coins also grew amazingly. Cardano is a coin with such an impressive growth rate. I know that you bought and read this book because you love Cardano and want to invest in it. Me too. Must love, must be passionate about something, then we can live with it. However, between love, like, buy, hold and profitable investment analysis is a completely different matter. Are you passionate about blockchain technology, Cardano of course, but it would be great if you knew how to learn, own and profit from this passion, right? To do that, you must understand technical analysis and master the psychology of investing in any financial product. Unfortunately, gaining knowledge and experience in this field is an arduous process and takes a lot of time and effort. I've been there and gone through this, so I sympathize with you and did my best to compile this book. I have kept this book as simple as possible. Distilled in it many years of observation and experimentation in the market to come up with a trading plan that I believe will help you shorten the arduous road ahead. It will be a long road, but then you'll find yourself a whole new person. A person who confidently goes with the technology of the times. Good luck.

Communities of Play by Celia Pearce Book Resume:

The odyssey of a group of “refugees” from a closed-down online game and an exploration of emergent fan cultures in virtual worlds. Play communities existed long before massively multiplayer online games; they have ranged from bridge clubs to sports leagues, from tabletop role-playing games to Civil War reenactments. With the emergence of digital networks, however, new varieties of adult play communities have appeared, most notably within online games and virtual worlds. Players in these networked worlds sometimes develop a sense of community that transcends the game itself. In Communities of Play, game researcher and designer Celia Pearce explores emergent fan cultures in networked digital worlds—actions by players that do not coincide with the intentions of the game's designers. Pearce looks in particular at the Uru Diaspora—a group of players whose game, Uru: Ages Beyond Myst, closed. These players (primarily baby boomers) immigrated into other worlds, self-identifying as “refugees”; relocated in There.com, they created a hybrid culture integrating aspects of their old world. Ostracized at first, they became community leaders. Pearce analyzes the properties of virtual worlds and looks at the ways design affects emergent behavior. She discusses the methodologies for studying online games, including a personal account of the sometimes messy process of ethnography. Pearce considers the “play turn” in culture and the advent of a participatory global playground enabled by networked digital games every bit as communal as the global village Marshall McLuhan saw united by television. Countering the ludological definition of play as unproductive and pointing to the long history of pre-digital play practices, Pearce argues that play can be a prelude to creativity.

Seit sie ‚Breath of Doom‘ spielte, teilte sie diese Ansicht nicht mehr. Es war viel schöner, sich im Stillen zu rächen, unerkannt und in fremder Gestalt.“ Ein Chef, der sie schlecht behandelt. Kollegen, die ihr die kalte Schulter zeigen. Ein Leben, das sie von Tag zu Tag mehr zu ersticken droht. Finja fühlt sich wie im freien Fall – bis sie das Online-Rollenspiel „Breath of Doom“ entdeckt. In der abenteuerlichen Fantasywelt wird aus der hilflosen jungen Frau die mächtige Zauberin Brianna. Hier kann sie es mit jedem Gegner aufnehmen und voller Selbstvertrauen von Sieg zu Sieg ziehen. Auch in Finjas wahrem Leben scheint sich auf einmal alles zum Guten zu wenden, als sie dem schüchternen Ben begegnet. Doch ist er wirklich der Mann, für den sie ihn hält? Und ist auch in der Online-Welt alles anders, als es auf den ersten Blick scheint? Ein fesselnder Roman über die beklemmende Frage: „Was passiert, wenn ein Spiel zur gefährlichen Falle wird?“

Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games, ihre sozialen Gemeinschaften und ihre Bedeutung für die Soziale Arbeit by Frank Hillemann Book Resume:

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Sozialpädagogik / Sozialarbeit, Note: B.A., Evangelische Hochschule Berlin (Studiengang Soziale Arbeit B.A.), Veranstaltung: Medienpädagogik, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In dieser Arbeit wird das Thema Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games (»MMORPGs«), ihre sozialen Gemeinschaften sowie deren Bedeutung für die Soziale Arbeit und (Sozial-)Pädagogik abhandeln. Mir war wichtig herauszuarbeiten, warum das Wissen darüber von Wichtigkeit ist. Zwei zentrale Fragestellungen haben mich besonders interessiert: Welche Forschungsbereiche gibt es und welchen Fragen widmen sich diese, sowie welche Erkenntnisse wurden gewonnen? Welche Erkenntnisse sind meines Erachtens nach für die Soziale Arbeit und (Sozial-)Pädagogik relevant und wie können sie genutzt werden? Kapitel 2 geht auf formale Besonderheiten der Arbeit ein. Kapitel 3 leitet in das Thema ein und erläutert die Problemlage aus meiner Sicht sowie welche Fragestellungen sich ergaben. Es wird dargestellt, welche Bedeutung das Thema für die genannten Arbeitsbereiche hat. Anschließend der theoretische und methodische Hintergrund erläutert sowie meine Thesen und das Ziel der Arbeit dargestellt. Kapitel 4 und 5 geben einen Überblick über die Forschungsbereiche, Thesen und wichtige Begriffe. Sofern möglich, wird der Forschungsstand kurz dargestellt. Wichtige Theorien werden genannt und kurz erklärt. Die Erkenntnisse aus der Forschung werden im Hinblick auf meine Thesen betrachtet. Das fünfte Kapitel geht kurz auf die Begriffe „Virtualität“ und „Realität“ sowie „Immersion“ ein. Kapitel 6 und 7 betrachtet »MMORPGs«, ihre sozialen Gemeinschaften und deren Kommunikation sowie Interaktion als auch die Ressourcen der Spiele und Spielerinnen. Auch hier lege ich dar, welche Schlussfolgerungen ich für meine Fragestellungen und Thesen ziehe. In Kapitel 8 gehe ich der Frage nach, wieso das gewonnene Wissen für die Soziale Arbeit und (Sozial-)Pädagogik relevant ist und wie die Erkenntnisse genutzt werden können. Kapitel 9 gibt einen Ausblick zum Thema und enthält ein Fazit.

Innovation and Marketing in the Video Game Industry by David Wesley,Gloria Barczak Book Resume:

Video games have had a greater impact on our society than almost any other leisure activity. They not only consume a large portion of our free time, they influence cultural trends, drive microprocessor development, and help train pilots and soldiers. Now, with the Nintendo Wii and DS, they are helping people stay fit, facilitating rehabilitation, and creating new learning opportunities. Innovation has played a major role in the long term success of the video game industry, as software developers and hardware engineers attempt to design products that meet the needs of ever widening segments of the population. At the same time, companies with the most advanced products are often proving to be less successful than their competitors. Innovation and Marketing in the Video Game Industry identifies patterns that will help engineers, developers, and marketing executives to formulate better business strategies and successfully bring new products to market. Readers will also discover how some video game companies are challenging normal industry rules by using radical innovations to attract new customers. Finally, this revealing book sheds light on why some innovations have attracted legions of followers among populations that have never before been viewed as gamers, including parents and senior citizens and how video games have come to be used in a variety of socially beneficial ways. David Wesley and Gloria Barczak's comparison of product features, marketing strategies, and the supply chain will appeal to marketing professionals, business managers, and product design engineers in technology intensive industries, to government officials who are under increasing pressure to understand and regulate video games, and to anyone who wants to understand the inner workings of one of the most important industries to emerge in modern times. In addition, as video games become an ever more pervasive aspect of media entertainment, managers from companies of all stripes need to understand video gaming as a way to reach potential customers.

Choreographies of 21st Century Wars by Gay Morris,Jens Richard Giersdorf Book Resume:

Wars in this century are radically different from the major conflicts of the 20th century--more amorphous, asymmetrical, globally connected, and unending. Choreographies of 21st Century Wars is the first book to analyze the interface between choreography and wars in this century, a pertinent inquiry since choreography has long been linked to war and military training. The book draws on recent political theory that posits shifts in the kinds of wars occurring since the First and Second World Wars and the Cold War, all of which were wars between major world powers. Given the dominance of today's more indeterminate, asymmetrical, less decisive wars, we ask if choreography, as an organizing structure and knowledge system, might not also need revision in order to reflect on, and intercede in, a globalized world of continuous warfare. In an introduction and sixteen chapters, authors from a number of disciplines investigate how choreography and war in this century impinge on each other. Choreographers write of how they have related to contemporary war in specific works, while other contributors investigate the interconnections between war and choreography through theatrical works, dances, military rituals and drills, the choreography of video war games and television shows. Issues investigated include torture and terror, the status of war refugees, concerns surrounding fighting and peacekeeping soldiers, national identity tied to military training, and more. The anthology is of interest to scholars in dance, performance, theater, and cultural studies, as well as the social sciences.
