Gamer looking for new home – not the kind you live in. I am doing just fine along those fronts. More like a new home game. There was a time, back when level 60 was the level cap in World of Warcraft (WOW), that 40 of us would get together to run Molten Core. In Everquest II we would visit each other’s homes and show off our decorations. PVP Battlegrounds like Alterac Valley in WoW were a team activity and even when we didn’t win it we had a great time trying. There was a time when Age of Conan was the hot new game and the starting area was jammed with people – my sister and I, who are two of the five co-hosts of the No Prisoners, No Mercy Show started out as a show called “Age of Co-Nuns” for Online Gaming Radio. There was a time when Eve Online was a place I would go to look forward to regular mining expeditions with large groups of people and I didn’t have to look over my shoulder for anything but an Orca picking up ore.
Those were the days.
Ventrillo was one of the gaming channels of choice; on a week end and evenings it would be crowded with friendly players.
I miss those days. Gamer looking for new home.
