Sid Meier is the guy behind brilliant games like Civilization and Pirates. I am a big fan of both games (even though I hardly play them anymore, a game of Civ IV takes up quite a bit of time) so I found this recent interview very interesting. It’s over at gamersglobal.com.
A Sid Meier MMO sounds very interesting, he would probably come up with something very original and new ;).
Virginworlds is a great informative podcasts on MMORPG’s. And episode 100 is an epic !
Clocking in at just under 3 hours in length, show 100 has finally arrived. There are probably 30+ familiar voices on this show and you’ll find plenty of raw commentary and information as well as more laughs than any other episode of the VirginWorlds Podcast.
How come everytime I read about a fellow mmorpg player dies, that I dont even know, it makes me very sad ? I just updated my podcast feed of the Instance and noticed a special episode for Bruce Galloway aka Milliway in game. I have never met him, but reading about him, he was a wonderful helpful person.
Why do I, a thirty-seven year old man, play a computer game like World of Warcraft? What blatant justification could there possibly be for anyone to sit for hours in front of a computer screen and immerse themselves into a fantasy world of RP and, at least for a time, forget about his RL? I can give you one such answer: Bruce Galloway.
I have been playing it since last tuesday when it was released, and I must say I’ve been having a lot of fun with it. It’s very nice to meet the players again, that I used to play with when WoW started, almost 2 years ago.
