Massive Gamer Magazine Debuts

MMOs are a tricky beast to cover. The usual gaming media sites are general purpose, and that’s just fine, but those of us who play MMOs know how different they can be from regular games.

Enter a new player in that arena, Massive Gamer Magazine. Brand spanking new, it’s both a website for ongoing MMO news, and a monthly magazine.

It’s not being run by just anyone.  Dana Massey (formerly of and Warcry) is taking the reins, along with an impressive co-pilot:

I’ll be joined by Sanya Weathers, known to many by her maiden name Thomas. Sanya was the Director of Community Relations for Mythic Entertainment and is known throughout the industry for her wit, sharp tongue and no nonsense attitude.

Things just went live, but coverage is already very active.  Check it out!

Quantum Rise Feature Page

The feature page for the new EVE expansion Quantum Rise is now online, listing all the goodies we can expect from the upcoming expansion.

Certificates, medals, speed changes, UI enhancements (YES), new gates, new music…  whew.

There’s not a LOT more information there than what’s been previously announced, but who knows what’s to come that they’re holding back — what with Fanfest so close at hand.

Massively Spotlights: Me

Well, I’ve been spotlit.  James Egan of, probably my favorite resource for MMO news these days, has done an EVE Community Spotlight, and this time it’s yours truly.

Answering questions like these, one tends not to realize just how much you’re typing until it’s done, and suddenly you’re staring at a short story’s worth of text.  But I hope folks enjoy it. 🙂

Give it a read, sound off in the comments if you like, and thanks again to James for the opportunity.

EVE Blog Pack Tweets

TwitterMany of you are aware of the EVE Blog Pack. It’s a kind of bloggers consortium organized by CrazyKinux to provide EVE players with a way to easily find and subscribe to the generous helping of EVE bloggers out there.

Well, we’re also into the Twitter thing too. Well, some of us are. Twitter, for those who don’t know, is like microblogging. Short messages, SMS sized for brevity, are sent around between contacts. It’s easy to follow others and get that content delivered to you Twitter home or a portal device like a cell phone.

If you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to on there, here’s a list of the Blog Pack members who’re also tweeting.
