ok people...here it is. Metaplace

It took me a while to ‘get it’ but this things is massive.
If you want to make games, especially online ones then this is really good. www.metaplace.com

Best of all…it’s easy for non programmers and lets you make what programmers can.



get to level 60 on World of Warcraft. (read all 2 entries…)
(open loop) A scary similarity to...

The study of rats pushing a ‘pleasure button’, wired to their nervous system making them feel intense pleasure with every press.

They pushed it 5000 times an hour, stopping only when they fell asleep, forgoing sex, food and water.

Thank God (I mean it) that breathing is involuntary.

My experience with WOW became like that after a month,
it stopped being about the exploration/socialising/achieving etc

and became about getting my ‘fix’ of pleasure, throughout the day I’d get intense hits of pleasure/dopamine even when not playing, and an intense urge to get back to it.

I loved making gold from the auction system, arbitrage rocks.

Most exciting moment:
finding an afk lvl60 (I was a lvl30 hunter) and attacking it.

Lo and behold there was a player behind it the whole time, let me get it to 5% health, then sent me to the graveyard.

any tips on how to play without getting addicted?
