Sony Online Entertainment confirms layoffs, studio closings [Updated] {Massively}

Mar 31st 2011 6:58PM So Smedley believes that the future of the company lies in recycling old stuff rather than trying new stuff?

Man, how long until SOE just goes away for good?

Mar 17th 2011 10:59PM I'm sorry, I couldn't hear anything you said over her hips.

The Daily Grind: Have you ever bought gold? {Massively}

Mar 12th 2011 11:30AM Ayup, I've trade PLEX in both directions in EVE. Generally, though, I tend to "sell" my ISK by purchasing a PLEX to extend my time. When I was unemployed, it was the only way I could justify continuing to play.

The Daily Grind: How long have you been playing MMOs? {Massively}

Mar 6th 2011 10:24AM SWG just after the CU hit -- Memorial Day weekend of 2005, IIRC.

EVE Evolved: Tough lessons in corp management {Massively}

Mar 1st 2011 10:55AM Props for 'coming out' like that. I'm right there with you, buddy, and many other EVE players (just like every other segment of humanity) are, too.

The Daily Grind: What was your most memorable first? {Massively}

Mar 1st 2011 10:53AM Okay, so if cyber is off the table...


Anyway, I remember when SWG released the space collections and I got server first for the rogue droid collections on Starsider, a heavy space server. Stayed up all night and nearly got RSI but it was sooo worth it.

The Daily Quest: Death and guilt {WoW}

Mar 1st 2011 1:49AM I'm going to suggest that if you consider WoW the "ultimate" guilty pleasure, then you need a bit more vice in your life.

Feb 26th 2011 11:09PM You might want to run a spell checker on the article title.

Drama Mamas: The case of the underage scammer {WoW}

Feb 25th 2011 11:31AM Seriously? A dumb kid is "scum" and deserves to have his hand cut off?

I know you're trolling, but how does this get upvoted? Has the Taliban started playing WoW?

Kids do dumb things. They need to learn their lessons, definitely, so that they become productive adults and valuable members of society. That doesn't make them "scum" -- who DIDN'T do dumb things when they were kids?

None of us, that's who.

Drama Mamas: The case of the underage scammer {WoW}

Feb 25th 2011 9:16AM (A) Until he threatened to keep going with alts, I don't see anything excessively wrong with what Remorseful actually did. So he gave him a long lecture? As the parent of two children myself, and seeing other kids at their school, I think more kids NEED straightforward communication to make clear certain societal norms.

(B) This won't necessarily affect his self-esteem long-term. Yes, self-esteem matters, but it will go up when he realizes that what he does matters, and then makes good choices, rather than thinking anything he does is okay. This world is rough and if you're gonna make it, you've gotta be tough.

(C) All that notwithstanding, if you feel bad about saying rude things to an eleven-year-old, that might also provide a lesson in how you communicate with adults.

So I'm somewhere between Robin and Lisa on this one. On the one hand, I don't think the kid will suffer anything like long-term harm (and may well benefit). On the other hand, I definitely think Remorseful should possibly examine how he communicates in general. Only he knows the full situation, of course, but being kind and respectful while still firm and resolute is always a good choice.
