There is a Zombie on my lawn

For those of you who played and finished Plants vs Zombies you must have heard the sweet credit music at the end of the game. Well guess what? It is sweeter in live session.

You can read all about the artist in her blog here.

Brick Gamers 46 - Wrath of the Leech King?

A bit lost about what this whole comic is about? Then perhaps you haven't read about this before - Blizzard introduced to World of Warcraft, a horse mount called the Celestial Steed, but it's not free. It costs USD25 and offers you 310-percent speed. So if you're a traveller in WoW, you might benefit from the 310% speed increase across the virtual world. However, if you're already paying for WoW and now you have to pay more to get a benefit in the virtual world, it does seem like the real world has now snuck into the virtual world where again, money rules. Think of it as having the money to buy a Ferrari in the real world so you can zip past people because you have the money to do so. Could this be a trend of WoW to come where more items will be sold to enhance your character by the mere power of your wallet to play in-game?

Would you pay USD25 for a horse in an online game just so you can move faster?

Wrath of the Lich King? Or Leech King? Or wrath of the gamers instead? Is this gaming?

Learn New language with gaming

Based on a true story... so it goes the fella in question was defeated in a way which was like totally owned. Before he left the game he said something native to himself and after that he messaged the same thing again via the network, lovely.

Girlfriend deletes Boyfriend's World of Warcraft character

This strip is inspired by the online video of girlfriend deletes boyfriend's WoW character and BF destroys his computer with a twist ending. Chances this idea has crossed the minds of a legion of disgruntled girlfriends worldwide whose boyfriends are spending more time in front of the monitor then with them. With the current craze over the 2010 South Africa World Cup, this might just be the alternative option for boyfriends to hit back (not literally) at their girlfriends!

Habbo Virtual Furniture Theft Rampant

A lot of you who played online games can understand how some virtual items are either so powerful or have such novelty value they can actually fetch real money in reality despite being just a cyber item inside a game.

As with all valuables they attract the people who would want to make them their own for either self satisfaction or conversion to cash. Well, since they are virtual item inside cyber space in a game that makes them really hard to "steal" you said? Apparently no more, read this BBC News about Police investigate Habbo Hotel virtual furniture theft and see how the absurd has became reality.

Gaming Bummer

Sort of a modern day gaming bummer, you leave your beloved games for a while when life distracted, when you came back eager to play instead first you are most likely to hit the update bars. Sure it is necessary for the game improvement, sure it is like a modern day essential, but compounding issues like slow local internet connection with big patches plus the ever dwindling time resource it still can be a bummer from time to time.
