    Second Life Bans Gambling

    In a recent blog post on the Second Life website, Linden Labs have announced that they are banning gambling within SL. To this very casual SLer, I can’t say this is a surprise. With Canadian and American goverments cracking down on online gambling, it’s not such a stretch to see it shut down in SL. Linden dollars are bought and sold for real world money, which makes it no different from regular gambling sites. It seems there’s going to be a lot of dissent on this announcement, especially since a lot of SL users are not located in the United States, and it can seem unfair to have their fun shut-down because of a US law. But, according to Linden Labs, they have always tried to make sure that Second Life and it’s residents adhere to real world laws. I know that gambling, especially slot machines, have been big since

    [img]http://www.cityofheroes.com/images/issue10/main_img.jpg[/img] It’s here, the much anticipated release of Issue 10: The Rikti Invasion which allows COHers to actually engulf themselves into the foundation of what City of Heroes was built upon. ((Courtesy of [url=http://www.cityofheroes.com/game_update10.html]COH NCSOFT[/url] )) Those are just a few details of what’s in store for heroes and villains alike during this most recent patch update. Below are my personal opinions on the very abrupt release of this game. [img]http://www.cityofheroes.com/images/issue10/screen_invasion_07.jpg[/img] Alerts light up in bright red in your chat box of your screen: ALERT Galaxy City is under attack by incoming Rikti Invasion. All citizens are to remain inside and take cover quickly!!!! This is it…This is your chance to answer the call and really delve into what it’s like to be a Hero! But what they didn’t warn you about isn’t the threat you’ll take on from the Rikti. No my friend, there is a much greater threat

    The plot thickens…

    It is a wonder how fast a bit of juicy word flies in the world of gaming. Mouths are dropping and fingers are twitching as the rumor mill rolls around…and around. Will Microsoft drop the price of the Xbox 360? Reports have been flying around that Microsoft is about to drop the 360’s price down by $50. Is that a bargain…I’m not sure, seeing as how Sony dropped the PS3 price down by $100. Altho it still would be cheaper than Sony’s price…who knows, I guess we’ll see. Some people believe it is the result of a lack of sales and the $1.9 billion dollar loss that Microsoft has undergone this past year on 360 sales, some believe that it is an attempt to promote sales in a slow buying season, others believe that it is due to fact that main competitor Sony dropped the price of it’s next-gen console.

    Video Games – Art or Not?

    In a recent commentary on his website , famed American movie critic, Roger Ebert, responded to some comments made by horror author and game creator, Clive Barker at the Hollywood and Games Summit. Barker was responding to comments made by Ebert in 2005 when he said that video games should not be considered art. You can see Barker’s comments at the Summit at Games Industry. As and artist and a gamer, I struggle with what camp I’m in in this debate. At my very core, both games and art have a very deep foothold, and the thought that games can’t be art definitely strikes a bad chord with me. If I were to think of games solely as an art form, I might have to agree with Ebert, whom I doubt has spent much time (if ever) gaming. By their very nature, where the player controls the actions of the

    A little taste of heaven…

    Due out early this September (hopefully!) Heavenly Sword is fast becoming one of this years most anticipated and most talked about games to take a journey onto the PlayStation 3 (aside from a few others of course). I’m pretty psyched about this game & actually [b]really[/b] psyched to see a female kicking some major bootay. What I’ve understood so far of the storyline makes for one kick arse plot of revenge that invloves twisting, turning, & one deadly yet heavenly sword that when weilded by a mortal is both lethal to enemies and life-sucking to the weilder. Not to mention that it is going to be LOADS of fun to be able to control weapons with the SIXAXIS tilt. And it just warms my heart how she has been labeled the [b]Goddess[/b] of War. Super strong hero/heroine screaming with rage, tragic story, a riveting revenge plot – yum gotta love

    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
