The Best Of The Rest: Dick O’Clock Edition
Ah Sunday evening. A time for reflecting on the previous weeks activities and denying the upcoming week. We cling onto every precious moment of the last few hours of the weekend, trying to fool ourselves that we don’t really need seven hours sleep and that every minute less with our head on the pillow is another moment more of pure blissful weekend freedom. Unfortunately I can’t do much about the impending daybreak but I can reflect upon the last week’s blogging shenanigans…
- Ever fancied contributing to a MMO blog? Chris from Game By Night is looking for more authors for his site!
- Spinks, the kind goddess that she is, suggests five ways to help out new players.
- Brad McQuaid answers some questions that were posted on his blog. Interesting stuff.
- Andrew from Systemic Babble highlights the dangers of taking MMOs offline.
- The awesome Brian “Psychochild” Green is looking for some volunteer help on a secret MMO related project.
- Ixobelle takes a look at the iPhone WoW Auction House app. As does Tobold.
- Would MMOs be better with less of an emphasis on combat? Keen ponders.
- Petter from Don’t Fear The Mutant wants to better understand the RMT economy.
- MMO blogger extraordinaire, Wolfshead, writes a powerful piece about the MMO industry needing it’s own cataclysm.
And if you’re wondering about the title of this week’s link love post it’s because I wanted to give special mention to an article by, probably, Britain’s best writer, Charlie Brooker (or simply C-Brook to his friends). In an article for the Guardian newspaper he takes a brief look at the premiere of Spartacus: Blood and Sand on UK TV and lavishly describes it’s full-on blood, sex and nudity. I’m incredibly curious to watch the show now although I’ll take his advice and refrain from watching it with my mum.
