Okay, it only seems like it. As you may have guessed, real life got in the way for a while there. Pesky stuff. To borrow from Night Court… “but I’m MUCH better NOW.”
Of course, getting back into the groove is harder than it seems. Sadly, I haven’t even been keeping up with my usual round of blogs. I have no idea where the conversations are now… ah, well, I’ve always been a bit off the beaten track anyway.
Random stuff, to start…
If you have a fascination with disasters-in-the-making, I am currently scheduled to run a roundtable at the IMGDC. At least it’s a roundtable (I shouldn’t have to talk much, praise heaven), and on a topic I have some claim to experience with: the concept of roleplaying, and how it might apply to MMO design and development. I’ve even got my own little picture and promo on the presenter’s page, if you can believe that. (WARNING: my visage has been known to induce screaming fits in small children. View with caution.)
I can’t remember if I’ve ever linked to this in the past, so… www.onrpg.com is a site I ran across a bit ago that links to a variety of indie, free-to-play MMOs, “engines”, and the like. Might be of interest, in case you’re casting about for something to fill some time or offer inspiration.
It being election season here in the U.S. (is it ever NOT election season?), I’ve been shoehorning in a little candidate research, and ran across this WoW-related gem (titled “re: Your Brains”) on a couple of political blogs. Not sure if it’s made the rounds on the MMO blogs yet… I thought it was quite humorous.
Well, more tomorrow. I’ve actually had a few topics building up steam of late… I may actually have something of potential interest to pontificate on! (That’d be a change, huh?)
