Yo

Posted in MMORPG on 01/29/2009 by Jeremy (Jmo)

Been a while since my last post again. I promise I haven’t thrown in the towel. Work has been really hectic lately and has had me keeping weird hours. I’ve also spent my little free time finishing the Trek to 80 on my Death Knight (which I finally hit last night), jotting down random notes for my eventually to be written book, working on show notes for Not-A-Cast, and also, I’ve started taking classes again.

Life’s hectic, but I will try to post more often.

What a Great Idea!

Even though my current “main game” of sorts is World of Warcraft (again), I’ve always been a Sony fanboy. Whether it be their consoles or their MMOs, I’ve always at least given them a shot. Most of the time, I have not been let down.

Earlier today there was an announcement put out about a new way to get your hands on SOEs MMOs. Steam. Yep, you heard (read) me write! Sony’s main MMOs are now available for download on Steam. Why do I care? Steam reaches over 15 million people. These 15 million people now all have a ton of MMOs more readily available to them, including Everquest. If it wasn’t for EQ, I wouldn’t even have this blog. It’s what brought me into the world of MMOs, and for that, I will be forever greatful.

So my props and kudos to SOE, for taking a step in the right direction, where marketing and distribution are concerned. Wish them the best of luck in this endeavor, and truly hope that this will actually cause a spike in subscription numbers for EQ, EQII, Vanguard, and any others that are now on Steam.

As a side note: For those that don’t know, I spend a lot of time as an Admin on NotAddicted.com and have recently started hosting the site’s PodCast. Be sure to check out Not-A-Cast, and NotAddicted, when you get a chance. I keep it fairly short…for now. Also, I’m scheduled to be on an upcoming No Prisoners, No Mercy Podcast as well. Stay tuned!

Again, I Stand Amazed

Well, it’s a new year and one of my Resolutions is to try and keep up on writing on a normal basis, either here on my blog, or working on a book idea I’ve had milling around in my head for years.

But to hold everyone over until my next post, check out the video that WanderingGoblin had posted today…just… insane…
