Welcome to the 19th edition of Reloading…
"It’s gotten to the point now where I surf the fan sites everyday and download cool things the fans have created, which is really ironic in a way!” – Will Wright
Everyone can use a feel good moment to start the day. Let’s go with this…
I have shared a brief glimpse into the abyss that is my thoughts on guilds, guild structure and how developers (specifically Blizzard) may have strayed from the best path in previous columns. Thanks to the dozens of gamers who sent me feedback. It is all appreciated, but I can’t reply to everyone. There are just too many. Know that I appreciate your time to first read this column and secondly to write me with your opinions, kudos or GPS directions to the nearest psychiatrist.
If you haven’t watched the Patch 4.2 trailer yet then I suggest you take three minutes and do so.
I posted the patch notes to this “mini-expansion” in my last column. Are you looking forward to Firelands or have you already moved on to another game? If you have moved on, is Firelands enough to bring you back?
In other news, a title that I have been waiting for, fingers crossed that it is actually given the time and attention that it deserves, Warhammer 40,000: Dark Milennium Online, looks like it may see the light of day after all. THQ has stated that WH40K: DMO will be the focus of their E3 2012 show. The game that was the reason you have the Starcraft universe is going to come into its own.
Last, but not least today… EVE is going to allow third-party developers to charge for their apps, websites and services. I’m not even sure where to start here as the discussion is far too long for one column, but let’s just say I’m for this with some caveats.
Share your thoughts on something from the column today or just in general. You’re cool and we’d like to hear from you!
