#1: Star Wars GalaxiesIf you didn’t see that coming, you don’t know me at all. So, hello! Pleased to meet you. Basically, you can sum up the reason as: I got to live in the Star Wars universe. And I mean live in it. SWG was a living, breathing world filled with characters who made it come alive with all their personal lives and stories. It was everything I love about movies, books, and theater all wrapped up together without the monotony of predictability! I could sit back and watch stories unfold, or I could be a part of them. Unlike books and movies, I didn’t know what would happen next, because with the variable of so many individuals involved, there were many twists and turns and surprises.

You know, it wasn’t so long ago that the impetuous little old me would fly into a fit of rage every time something didn’t go the way I wanted them to in an RPG, and I would revert to a previous save to desperately try and salvage the situation. Needless to say, fluky outcomes and mechanics like random rolls always had a way of sticking in my craw. I was, and in some ways still am, a pretty big control freak and a stickler for perfection, and it used to drive me completely bonkers not to have a good idea of where my character’s story might be going. Not surprisingly, whenever my character would come across an important decision, I’d always agonize, fighting the urge not to jump onto the internet and look up the results on some wiki or read the forums about what other gamers did. … [Read more...] about Dragon Age 2: Making Terrible Decisions And Loving It
Mirror of Discovery, like Age of Discovery, seems to be setting up a plot point that will pay out somewhere down the line — just how far down the line I don’t know, but I suspect we won’t be seeing the big payoff in the next update. It seems Cryptic is playing the long game here, and if the first two installments are anything to go by, whatever they have planned is going to be big. You really can’t get that many villains in one spot and not have something major happen. … [Read more...] about Mirror Of Discovery Is The Middle Chapter In Star Trek Online’s Building Drama

Why not inject a bit of new facts and trivia in your column? How about an interesting story as an appetizer to the main dish? Put something that almost all people can relate to, something that is so familiar to everyone’s lives, and something that, once read, the reader will automatically say, “Yeah, it happened to me, too”. Finding some common ground among strangers is one of the best ways to have them pause a bit and listen to you. Remember, this is the introduction we are talking about. The first few lines of your entry have to be eye-catching and pause-worthy. Never disappoint your readers. They chose to spend some more time on what you’re trying to say so make it good.It is in these first few lines that the reader will decide as to whether or not to go on reading and switch pages and get back to work. “Hmmmm, go on. I can spare some more minutes on this while on my coffee break”. … [Read more...] about How to Write a Viral Content ?
