A Thing that make me go LOL
Another one of Looking for More’s Corporate Raider Comics
A thing that made me go :(
Skeleton Jack advised that he was kicked out of Cataclysm Friends and Family because of his blog.
“Apparently there is some internal policy at Blizzard that prohibits people from participating in NDA content who have some form of media interaction and/or publication dealing with Blizzard games on any level. IE., I have a blog about WoW so I’m out”
If I were to be involved in something wow related that required non disclosure, I don’t doubt my ability to keep quite about the details, but I do conceded that I would be influenced by the content. While I don’t necessarily believe that I am a Wow investigative journalist with a moral duty to expose all. I would be tempted to at least mull over the new thoughts that my experience would give me, and that it may come out in my writing about wow regardless.
The missing out on something because you write about Wow is a disappointment, it becomes a cost – and one I had not thought about much. But certainly a price worth paying for the freedom to speak my own mind.
A thing that made me go GRRRRRRRR
Warcraft Widow Deletes Boyfriend’s Toons as per A Geek Girl Diva
Fool him for trusting his girlfriend by not logging his account out, and as Geek Girl Diva points out, she not only deletes characters, but she destroys the gear on ‘his favourite’ by deleting them one by one.
I’ve watched a few ” I’m tired of my Boyfriend playing his *insert game console here* on youtube, and girls smashing it up, and posting it on youtube, theres videos of Girlfriends raging, and deleting Beta Key code emails their boyfriends received ect.
It not funny.
His reaction – the smashing of his computer screen was also not funny – and quite scary.
Yes there are extremes to gaming addictions, and something like that could be seen as ‘staging an intervention’ , and I am sure there are so many Significant others that have issues with the time spent on a game – but there has to be other ways of opening up a conversation about the issue the relationship is having then destroying their game/console.
I read I kept Playing – A happy ending about the writers struggle with an Everquest addiction a follow up to I kept playing – the cost of my gaming addiction for some perspective, and as an example of what I never want my life to come to.
If you ever destroyed something dear to me out of spite – I wouldn’t smash my screen – or rage around my apartment – I would look at you with sad eyes, and tell you to remove yourself from my presence. That goes for my writing, my notebooks, my pictures, any creative project – but I will say – that like the person with the everquest addiction – If I’m ignoring an naked Girl boy ( in my case) in my bed for the sake of one more level. I have bigger problems.
