Welcome to the Massively Multiplayer Onlien Game Morning Show with John "Boomjack" Hoskin and Jeff "Ethec" Woleslagle.
It is always interesting to see who picks up your content and reports it to the dice-rolling, high-end computer rig using masses. Sites like Blues and ShackNews usually pick up the pieces that are delivering quality content to the reader. Things like our MMOG Terminology Guide don't make the cut. In fact, not a single site has posted that the guide exists even though it has received the most traffic of any article written in the last three months.
I guess that is where is different. We are in the entertainment business. We deliver the news in our own way. We write our articles in our own way and if somebody sends us something about MMOGs we post it, assuming it isn't linking to something offensive, like pictures of Martha Stewart or poems written by Alex Baldwin.
It was cool to see the site come in second in a NCSoft poll that asked "What is your favorite gaming site?". We received more votes than some incredible sites like GameSpy, IGN and The " Pwns You!" shirts are in the mail.
I suppose we're just different, which is exactly how our Mom's used to describe us to their friends. Go figure.
