Glitch in the System!

Leave a comment

I have encountered the online game called Glitch via the social web site Plurk which I have found ever so slightly addictive but a lot of fun.

Basic premise of the game you are exploring the minds of a number of giants which have created a wonderful world to explore full of humour and interesting places to explore. The game play is very simple in so much you learn skills, explore and do quests for usual thing money, experience points and awards but there is an major element of social interaction which is always a big bonus with such games.

This social side changes Glitch from yet another online game to something little more as personally such games need a social side to make them special and give them a great appeal to a lot of people.

Personally I would recommend Glitch as it makes a nice way to spend a few spare hours epecially if you have friends there.

If you want to find out more or join Glitch then go to the link http://www.glitch.com.

Common Questions Asked by WoW Player About Second Life

Leave a comment

There are two questions usually asked me by a World of Warcraft Player about Second Life which are:

* Is Second Life a game?
* Does Second Life have Quests etc.?

Which the answers are a no which is usually greeted by total bewilderment on the World of Warcraft Player who then asks the question, What is Second Life?

When you then explain that Second Life is a Virtual World created by it’s residents who live a Second Virtual Life there that is usually met by total and utter bewilderment on their part!

It seams that a large proportion of World of Warcraft players actually have no real concept of a virtual world unless it is highly structured within a game. This is a little sad on their part because they are perpetuating this myth about people who spend a lot of time in MMO and virtual worlds as social misfits!

Irony is within Second Life you have to have social skills to get a full and satisfying time within Second Life!
