Apr 6th 2007 1:17PM I was one of those "I'll never pay a monthly fee to play a game" people for the longest time. I was running two NWN persistent worlds. NWN = free, WoW = $$. Seemed simple. The I saw an ad online for 10 day free trial. Haven't looked back. I even got my wife playing.
Mar 31st 2007 11:13AM @1 Apple isn't any more or less secure than Wintel inherently, it's just that Apple PCs make up such a small market share that writing viruses for Appples isn't worth the trouble.
Feb 23rd 2007 3:09PM @#2 - Wait 'til you have more than one kid. They make their own special sound track. I have three boys, aged 7, 5, and 3. It's usually not too musical, except when my 5 year old is "composing" on his keyboard.
Jan 21st 2007 7:38PM Frankly, I'm looking forward to 5-man instances because the more people you have to include in an instance the greater percentage of drawing twinks. Also, I know about five or six people IRL who play WoW who I know would be good people to party with, so that will make gaming with them enjoyable.

That way if your characters get split up, or you and a friend get split, there's an opportunity to correct the problem.

Dude, I am horde and I laughed. I likes crezzy peeplz.
Sep 2nd 2006 11:27AM I met my wife way back in the days of text-based MMORPGS, then called MUDs and MUSHes. She accidentally sent a tell to me, I gave some smart ass response, and the rest is history. We've been married 8 years and have three kids.
I'd say meeting people online is easier because it's less risky. But you've got to be careful, because you never know what kind of person is on the other end. Of course, that's true if you meet people in a bar or through a dating service, too.
