Filed under: — Psychochild @ 7:12 PM

So, the big news I read today is that the Newbie Blogger Initiative (NBI) is coming next month. That’s pretty exciting news, as I thing game blogging is a great thing, and having more bloggers is better!

“Why can’t you add just one more thing….”
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 12:59 PM

One of my pet peeves is people underestimating the work that goes into game development. For example, people ask, “Why can’t you add just this simple thing?” not realizing that this one thing has a lot of consequences.

I’ll go into some detail about why one simple thing is usually not a simple thing.

Ask me almost anything!

Blaugust, day 22

Let’s get this party started, shall we? I’ll be monitoring the comments most of the day to day, and I’ll answer what I can.

Again, the one major ground rule is no questions about Camelot Unchained. Sorry, I’m not authorized to give out any information. I recommend you visit the main site, as there is a ton of information on there about the game.

For today’s post, I’ll answer a question already posed yesterday.

Return of the Newbie Blogger Initiative
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:06 PM

In grand Psychochild’s Blog tradition, I’m here to tell you news waaaaaaay after the fact. Anyway, this post is about the return of the Newbie Blogger Initiative! Do you write about game stuff, particularly MMOs, and want to get some attention to your writing? Want some experienced bloggers to lend some guidance while you explore the crazy world of blogging? Then this is the initiative for you!

Anyway, I signed up to be a mentor, so I should probably post something, right?

NBI: What makes your blog special
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:53 PM

Rawr! It's a dragon!

I’m going to claim that I’m fashionably late to the Newbie Blogger Initiative. To be fair, I’ve been busy. So, I’m going to cheat a bit, ignore the rules, and jump right into offering advice. :)

So, what does make your blog special?

A bit of creative writing
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 7:50 PM

I’ve obviously been super-inspired the last few days as I’ve written a couple of creative works. Figured I’d post on here for those that appreciate that sort of thing.

Do you like cyberpunk?
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:19 AM

Well, do you? If so, do I have a new site for you: http://theinternetcrashed.com/

Go read it, bookmark it and/or put it in your RSS reader. Then come back and read a bit more about why that site matters to MMO fans.

Lots of talk about Champions Online on the blogs right now, so I wanted to point out a little something that might tickle that superhero fancy:
