Just finished recording Shut Up We’re Talking, and had a great time chatting with Richard, Charlie, and of course, Darren. We talked about social play, and about the issue of fun vs addictive in MMOs. Darren made an interesting comment about AGC, saying that two major themes were about RMT subscription models, and solo/social gameplay. Then he went on to gush about Batman: Arkham Asylum so much that I, monogamous gamer that I am, might actually go out and purchase it. For my husband of course. Anyone that’s played with me knows how poorly I’d do in console games. (Ok, so I can’t get out of the pool in Chelsith, stop laughing!)

In game, I’ve had fun with the latest EQ2 update. The Shard of Love is a nice low key zone, which is just what I’m looking for lately. The Achievements aren’t something I’ve ever been into, but it gives a little more incentive to go back and do older content. The automentoring is really nice though, because it allows us to revisit old zones without having to pluck out someone of the right level to mentor to. Now how about putting in a Buffbot to boost the level of new players, so they can jump right in and play with the general population?
I also am trying to get into this whole Twitter thing. If Kanye can do it, so can I, right?

I got a new follower today, /wave SuccessWallpapers, so now I’m up to 24 I think. Keep em coming please!
