In commemoration of Blizzard for Blizzcon, I present this fun, totally unofficial, totally biased list of my Top 5 Raids (pre-Mists of Pandaria) in our beloved World of Warcraft.
Alright, so this might be surprising to some of you, but hopefully not most […]
Syp over at Biobreak has published for all to see a quick list of 5 “little” things he thinks are great for modern MMOs. I rather enjoyed the list, but couldn’t help wondering why these things should be spread. Or if I think they’re even good ideas at all. Oh! the inspiration!
What follows is a rant. Brace yourselves, for rants are rare at Red Skies.
I’m all about sandbox MMOs. There’s hardly a blogger out there which believes as firmly as I do that they are the way of the future for the genre. However, I’ve rarely talked about the (significant) downside to the whole sandbox […]
Red Frog Freight, a peaceful and profitable hauling corporation (I’ve used them myself) in EVE Online got taken for 45 billion ISK. Player response to the incident has been more thought provoking than the incident itself.
The ISK lost is secondary to me, what I really hate losing is friends, or […]
MMOs have a depressingly familiar flavor to them these days no matter which one you play. It’s the kind of impression that leaves some of us feeling like it’s all the same grind, similar to some things in the real world — things we were hoping to escape from. Part of this impression we’re experiencing […]
A wonderfully informative post about the results of the Newbie Blogger Initiative was published over at the Ancient Gaming Noob. In it, TAGN polled the survivors over the past year and posted a survival rate (meaning currently active) of 27%. That means 73% of new bloggers are no longer at their blogs and/or […]
Interesting post popped up a while ago by Liore at Herding Cats, and since I’ve been away I never go the chance to respond so here I am. The discussion began with friendly jeering around the topic of chaos and order in MMO communities. Observing is the best part. Every time […]
I’m in catch-up mode right now as I graze the blogosphere for all the great articles I’ve missed in the past couple of weeks. I could afford to go back further, but that will take time. In the meanwhile, a topic that’s recently been fueling great discussion is the current condition of the MMO genre. […]
Glitch is closing.
The world is on fire. Companies going belly up, jobs lost, homes lost, families shattered ….and virtual worlds are ending. That was a lot more doom and gloom than I had anticipated before I typed that.
Tiny Speck, the amazingly creative and brilliant development team […]
SUMMAR HAS ARRIVED …and Doone has been baking in a heat wave with children and his better half. Apologies for the recent silence on the blog. It will abate soon as we run out of money!
The Secret World
I bought the game a week ago on Stump’s recommendation (good looking out). I’ve […]
