Holiday Break Complete!

As you may have guessed, we took a big long holiday break, several weeks travelling around the country (by car, no less). I kept on reading the latest gaming news (and even got some gaming in, if Rock Band 2 and various and sundry Wii games count - they were all multi-player, if not massive), so I'll be back at it now that things have settled down.

woot! WoW silliness

If you haven't heard, it's time for more stupid level 1 stunts.

Mark your calendars now for the upcoming Big Red Kitty/Ratshag event: The Running of the Bulls. It will be Saturday, May 3 (Tres de Mayo?) at 4pm (server time - I think 11pm GMT) on the Cenarion Circle server.

This is what virtual worlds were made for!

Good job!

With all the pseudo-Christmas celebrations going on in the various MMOs, it's refreshing to see a game taking a different tack. So props to Tabula Rasa for their Defeat of Earth memorial day. More at Massively.

One of the things I do like about online games is their ability to be seasonal. Right now it's brewfest time in World of Warcraft, and they've set up some amusing little quests and visuals to add color to the game. It's not really something you could very easily do to a traditional game, and I think it's something that will be taken advantage of even more in the future. There are actually a lot of opportunities in this area - a game which is supposed to take place in a certain real-world location could tie in to local forecasts, for example.
