April 18th, 2008

-Would it be really late 90’s if I shouted “Girl power!” here? The 2008 Women in Games Conference, held at the University of Warwick, is officially scheduled for September 10th-12th and calling for submissions. If you’ve got a paper–or a message–you’d like to present about females in the industry, go on and submit! I know I’m thinking about it…

-For months now I’ve been meaning to explore/post about this game called ELF Online, which bills itself as “the craziest MMORPG in history.” At the least, it’s surely one of the cutest ones. Newbies are greeted by “wet nurses,” the English is apparently horribly translated, and press releases claim the game attracts female players with its bizarre weapons, like a kitchen fruit knife. Ok, none of that equals adorable, but still: look!

-In masturbation news (okay, technology news), Second Life’s Linden Lab is apparently developing software that will allow players to circumvent their pain-in-the-butt user interface with hands-free, webcam-based motion sensing. That means more body parts available for… Well, you know what it means. Ah, progress.

Happy Weekend!

    That conference sounds pretty cool…

    I am also intrigued by this new MMORPG you have found. The cuteness just keeps staring at me…

    I haven’t gotten much into the gameplay myself, though I wish I could explain it better. Sometimes I feel so shallow, being attracted by all the prettiness :).
