There have been some great pieces in the blogosphere in the last week or so!
In fact, the entire ‘sphere seems to be waking up a bit at the moment – there’s a lot of quality writing and ideas out there. Very much enjoying it.
Here’s your dose of thinking to round out the week:
The Godmother is looking at the idea of Server Communities in WoW – how they were formed originally, and whether it will prove to be possible to resuscitate them now.
Jester looked at dumb moves in EVE – and the way in which EVE’s trademark brutality makes them both hard to avoid and very, very punishing.
Navimie responded to last week’s discussion of the portrayal of women in WoW, asking whether there is, in fact, one “right” way to portray women, or one way that won’t offend someone.
And Saxsy looked at the odious habit of “god-modding” in MMORPG roleplaying, giving examples of How Not To Do It (and what to watch for and avoid).
