Re: SQL-On-Hadoop not ready for primetime?
@Douglas, I am glad they are rethinking about making Level 65 a little less taxing. In my opinion, it was frustrating, nail biting, and aggravating. It was not balanced with fun and it exceeded the adrenaline rush of a challenge.

Re: Game Data
@Michael Endler, Dunk Hunt! How nostalgic! I used to love that game. I forgot all about it until I read your comment.

Game Data
Interesting article, Doug. I've heard something similar from Microsoft, that because Xbox is tied into Microsoft's cloud, they can gather data about gameplay, and potentially create games that adapt in real time to find the right balance between challenge and fun. When I first played video games, Duck Hunt on Nintendo was very popular, so the new directions - some of them data-centric - that interactive entertainment has taken are pretty mind-blowing.

SQL-On-Hadoop not ready for primetime?
Moving data from Hadoop to a separate database does present a bit of a burden, says Andy Done of King, but it could not perform required analyses with the SQL-on-Hadoop options available when it chose Exasol last year. Since that time Actian, HP (Vertica), InfiniDB and others have ported their databases to run on top of Hadoop, but Done didn't seem interested in changing out King's current, two-platform approach for an alternative just yet.
