Urbanite Update for Late Winter and Links

Hey Urbanites.

I hate daylight savings time.  Everything is off.  Apologies for the shortness of the post this week.

So Guild Wars 2.  It would seem that more and more of us are congregating into that area.  An NCSoft owned game, I would just like to point out.  While I am opposed to this, I would be hypocritical not to point out that I have been lured in with a free key to try it out and see what it’s like.  I have to admit it’s kind of nice to see so many of the old gang there.  At some point I’m going to have to reconcile my presence there with my stance on NCSoft, so look for me to waffle on this for a while until I figure out exactly how I feel about it all.


City of Heroes made it into the news once again, this time with a report on a study being done after a community is shut down.  Check out this site for an overview and link to the acedemic piece.

Leigh Alexander and Laura Hudson, two of my most favorite authors/editors have started up a new gaming website, called offworld.com (re-started is probably the more technically correct term).  In their first week, they’ve published articles on everything from what it’s like being a 12 year old girl trying to enter gaming to breast physics.  Leigh Alexander breaks down the purpose of the site and their goals in this great summation here.  Go check it out.  Great stuff.

Overwatch just revealed two new characters for the game.  One of which is Zarya:


Awesome.  Beta starts this Autumn.  I’ll update when I know more.
