  • More Letter Soup: MMOEG or Sex in Games or Sex Games!

    GamersInfo.net's Ophelea has updated her blog with a topic that was talked about at this past weekend's IMDGC - sex in games.

    There’s nothing like sex to get people talking. Even the ones who “hate” it like it. Everyone reading this, who likes it, raise your hand.

    That pause was me raising mine. It made it hard to type.

  • IMGDC Keynote by Josh Williams, CEO of GarageGames

    GamersInfo.net updated their site last night with a look at the Keynote speech from this past weekend's IMGDC.

    Many indies just decide to try to “boot strap” the funding of their game. This “do-it-yourself in your spare time” has worked for a few, but is probably the most difficult to make a game on. The developer takes on debt, uses life savings, inheritance, or whatever they can find, to buy what they have to in order to get their game made

  • IMGDC New Content - Sharing Our Fantasies, A Sex-Filled Discussion with Kelly Rued

    Sex is everywhere. That's why we had a chat with Kelly Rued, an outspoken advocate for interactive adult entertainment and an independent developer in her own right as the Lead Designer on Gods of Desire, a "unique fantasy MMORPG for adventurous adults." Keep reading to learn what's going on with sex and MMOs!

    Even for the casual observer – like me – it's strikingly apparent that sex has already penetrated our every day MMOs. "People are playing sex games in the current crop of MMOs, mostly on the RP servers but on the normal servers as well. They spend a good deal of time figuring out ways to interpret real-life sexual positions in-game," Kelly said. "So why won't developers add some more social functions into these games?"

    You really don't want to miss a word!

  • Captains and Hunters in Eriador

    IGN has posted a look at the soon to be launched Lord of the Rings Online. This look includes some videos for you to check out as well.

    While we've yet to touch the Guardian, LotRO's tank class, and the Lore-Master, a ranged spell blaster, we have managed to build a Hunter to 15 and a Captain to 10. Playing around with these types gave us some experience with pets for the first time, a prominent feature of the Captain. At this point we've logged a substantial number of hours wading through the introductory content for this game, and have yet to get sick of it.

  • Express Yourself: Emotes in The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar

    The official site for Lord of the Rings Online has been updated with an article that talks about the mood emotes available in the game.

    Self-expression is an essential part of any MMO, and "emotes," character actions accompanied by a description, and often an animation, are a fun way to emphasize your character's mood and convey information.
