    Another Victory for World of Warcraft

    As I logged onto worldofwarcraft.com to do my daily check on Blizzard and WoW news, I noticed two Blizz anouncements that caught my eye. First, Blizz has announced that WoW players worldwide now number well over 9 million, which is quite a feat for an MMO. Of course, Blizz has been rockin’ for the past few years with it’s Warcraft franchise bringing out Manga, a TCG, an expansion, gamer gear and much much more. One of the biggest news in my book, and in many other peoples I’m sure, was the announcement of Starcraft II. Another droolworthy bit of news that Blizz has made public is the announcement of a World of Warcraft Comic book series (cover by Jim Lee woohoo!). The website dates the comics to be available in stores November 14, 2007. Can’t wait! With 9 million players, Starcraft 2, a new Comic Book series and all the

    More Kingdom Hearts?

    I do love Kingdom Hearts and every week I’m always scouring the net looking for news on the next developments and well I came across [url=http://www.kh2.co.uk/?page=NI/KH2FMU]this[/url]. It is an interview about the new Kingdom Hearts title that will be revealed later this summer. It looks as if it is going to be a go-between another Chain of Memories type thing. I am really excited for this and I hope that it comes to a handheld near me (the DS). This is going to be the story of the year between Sora’s sleep and awakening. The theme for this game is “Birth by Sleep” and it looks really great. Sora will [b]not[/b] be the main character in this game and I like that because I am really tired of Sora about now. The main character might be Riku or Roxas. Or both! I’m so excited because I’ve been wanting to play

    Meet the Press – GDC ’07

    Meet the Press Event at GDC The very last day of GDC, I had an early afternoon flight back to Los Angeles, but I was determined to attend the Meet the Press panel. My first main goal was to go and point out the fact that they were no female game journalists on the panel and to address the fact that video game journalism seems to be more difficult for women to get into than the video game industry. The all male panelists were from EGM, IGN, and 1UP. No one could argue that they didn’t have an immense amount of knowledge about video game journalism. The room was mostly full of PR people, most of whom already knew the members of the panel. The first topic was how review scores are made. IGN has an average office. The belief was that if a game gets a score of 10,

    Waking up with Nintendo – E3 ’07

    Waking up with Nintendo Nintendo must like to get up early. Their press conference started at 9am. Most of us press were up until the wee hours of the morning getting articles ready for today. You could tell that people were still waking up. What is a better way to start off your conference than with a bunch of stats? Graphs aren’t boring right? Actually sometimes they are, but these graphs did show some interesting data about the industry and the affects of Nintendo DS and Wii. The stats showed an increase in both older games purchases, and an increase in women that play Nintendo games. Using the DS as an example, Reggie Fils-Aime stated several times that titles like the Brain Age series and Nintendogs have brought in people that probably have never played a game before. “Games like Wii Sports and the original Brain Age proved anyone can

    Erik from GoPets talks about Online Worlds

    From Online Games to Virtual Worlds – Erik Bethke CEO GoPets, Ltd. “All great online games are Virtual Worlds” Erik said he asked users if they would like to be called users or citizens. The overwhelming choice was to be called a citizen. Belief that Service Providers must be able to recoup any lost currency or goods through bad code or bugs. The idea that citizens really do believe their stuff is “theirs”. Which leads to the citizen’s right to buy, sell, or trade digital goods. Eric then made an interesting comparison of rights of people in North Korea, but then showed us that it was actually the rights of users of Second Life. Which proved that in the virtual world of Second Life, Linden Labs has the right to take away your items, close your account, and watch what you do. Rules in Second Life were actually stricter than
