Avatar is the second top grossing movie of all time. James Cameron is very pleased with himself to have directed the two money-making giants in the movie industry. I am really hoping to see this movie (or any movie) beat out Titanic for the number one spot. Please go to the movies now and watch Avatar twice.
Hellgate London will be returning to world this year. Hanbitsoft has acquired the license for the game and will be re-releasing it in the east and later in north America. I might actually try the game this time around if they can prove that it will last longer then a month.
Sims 3 beat out World of Warcraft for PC game sales in 2009. The fun part about this is that WoW is still one of the top-selling games 5 years after launch and they charge you 15 bucks a month to play. Blizzard wins in the long run. Sorry EA.
I’m looking into buying Aion for some MMO fun. I learned that the game has no end game raiding. Instead there is a player vs player vs environment zone for end game content. I’m curious to see how that plays out. Do players use other players to kill plants?
In case you didn’t know, World of Warcraft is a very popular video game. It has over 11 million subscribers, it absorbs your life force so it can grow bigger, and it wants to rule the world.
WoW has announced recently that it will be adding a Pet Store where you can buy special pets with real world money. These lovable little friends that you buy with money are available no where else in the game. The idea of friends you can only buy with money sounds just like Hollywood.
Players have been able to spend money for things like server transfers, race changes, or even a sex change for their character, but this is the first time that an item in-game can be bought.
Once again Blizzard is feeding their cash cow, and we are all to willing to help them out. We spent 60 bucks for the game, bought 2 expansion packs for it, give them 15 dollars a month, and now we will give them money for a cool little pet. Yes, you know you will. People may rant and rave about it but in the end people will buy them. Why? Because there cute like this:
Aion was the number one selling PC title for the month of September, which is amazing since it was release on the 22nd. Read the full scoop over at Gamasutra if you like. I havn’t had the chance to play this game yet but I might give it a try if a demo becomes available. It’s not likely to have a demo anytime soon as it’s sales are so high but i can wait. I like MMOs but they suck up all my game time. I left the succubus of WoW because I hadn’t played a single player game for 2 months.
As a footer I’m just gonna add that I might pick up Borderland at some point. I am really interested in it’s multiplayer Coop. You can jump in and out of any game. Experience is scaled up greatly if you join a friend who is in a later level of the game, and if you complete a quest in a friends game you will also have that reflected in your own game. Four people shooting things is always fun.
