World Bank: gold farming (etc) paid poor countries $3B in 2009

A research arm of the World Bank has produced a comprehensive report on the size of the grey-market virtual world economy in developing countries -- gold farming, power-levelling, object making and so on -- and arrived at a staggering $3 billion turnover in 2009. They go on to recommend that poor countries be provided with network access and computers so this economy can be built up -- a slightly weird idea, given how hostile most game companies are to this sort of thing. Kind of staggering (even if one has to wonder how they came...

Bye bye anonymous forum logins!

World of Warcraft maker to end anonymous forum logins – I can’t see any way that this is going to go through, and just as well. The separation between gaming lives/identities is something a lot of people strive to protect for valid reasons. It’s unfortunate there are many others who keep them separate for more malicious reasons, but that’s life. Tags: Gaming, WoW

It’s a good day when people queue to give you money

C.R.E.A.M – the answer to Blizzard’s little test to see if people would pay them money for items seems to be a resounding “yes”. $600,000 worth of people in the queue at the time of that post, that’s pretty staggering. Tags: WoW

Ways to spend more money on WoW

Somehow Murlocs developed some kind of cult status out of game as a plush toy. If you’ve ever wanted your own plush Murloc then soon you can have your wish. It’s the perfect gift for any WoW fan, or as a conversational aid for children who’s vocab consists of the phrase “mrrgrglgrglgrgl”. Less suitable for children are the charms, keyrings and pendants from Mana Princess. Personally I think the potions could have been made to look a little more like the ones in game, but that’s just me. The hearthstones are pretty neat though. Tags:...

New PA WoW Shirt

Penny Arcade have a new shirt aimed at hardcore WoW fans. Did you install BC and then immediately start replacing your purples with greens that dropped off bullshit trash mobs? Do you even have any idea what I just said? If you answered yes to both of those then you might like our new shirt. When I installed BC it didn't take long before I started to feel very sorry for anyone who spent a lot of time raiding or PvPing to get high end level 60 gear, seeing as BC suddenly introduced much better green items...

Alternate download locations for the WoW 1.11 patch

World of Warcraft patch 1.11 download link 1. World of Warcraft patch 1.11 download link 2. Unzip the files into the directory: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\wow-patch and run the game again. It should un-archive them and patch itself. (Note that this is the 150mb file which takes you from 1.10 to 1.11, not the other full 450mb beast which is floating around) Patch Notes here.Technorati tags: WoW, MMORPG

World of Warcraft Teaches the Wrong Things

Soapbox: World of Warcraft Teaches the Wrong Things is a very interesting article, a lot of which I agree with very strongly. In particular, his comments on time VS skills, and grouping vs soloing are very relevant. Anyhow, it's an interesting read. (Also he likes Streetfighter 2, so I'm instantly going to listen to anything he has to say). Technorati tags: Gaming, WoW
