Link Dead Radio: Identifying with the Industry

oh what dastardly plots I’ve run a foul of, bringing my post to the pit of despair. Planning to undo me in the most wicked of ways, curled around me and suffocating the will of the scheduled post. In other words the unemployment/ vacation vibes made me forget what day it was.. so i missed a day.

But alas, you are still trapped within the telling of these terrible tales of trite tidbits.

In An Age uses a few analogies when discussing the use of purchasing items within star citizen, and like mechanics within mmo’s. In a way it does add an unfair advantage to an equation that should just be about time and skill.

Lastly Bio break asks the question, is this the year of old mmo loves…. i tend to think so.
