News on teh Interwebs

Here’s a few interesting tidbits from the MMO niche you may have missed recently:

  • Jon, the founder of Wickedfire, is calling it quits .  Guess he’s sick of all the drama.  Goodnight sweet prince.
  • Ubercamp is now free .  Some of you may remember my thoughts on Paul’s project back when he started it.  I’d say that this is a good move, and should hopefully stimulate the growth of his forum.
  • Nickycakes’ ads are no longer free .  I just thought this was funny.
  • Shoemoney admits to being a former MMORPG addict . I know exactly what Shoe is talking about. My freshman year roommate got hooked on World of Warcraft, and it was like watching a building fall down in slow motion. Before WoW came out, he played a lot of video games, but he still went out to parties, went to class, etc. After WoW, he stopped going out with friends, never went to class (he played from 2 PM til 8 AM. Sleep a bit, repeat), and eventually he only left the room twice a day (to shower and run across the street for Subway). Tuesdays (when the servers were down), he’d just sit in front of his computer refreshing the server list (for hours), waiting for his server to come back up.  It was the most pathetic thing I’d ever seen.  Props to Shoe for overcomming his addiction.
  • I lost my ‘PHP and MySQL for Dummies’ book.  PR At-a-Glance is on hold until I find it.

    Hahaha, that’s hilarious about ShoeMoney. I’m really stunned that he was hooked on world of warcraft! Nickycake’s article was pretty funny as well. Great reads! Thanks for the post.

    Hehehe, I didn’t read Shoemoney’s post since it was too long, but you pretty much summed it up for me
