Computer Gaming World printed my letter! It was in response to a letter in a previous issue, where someone decried sex in favor of violence. My letter took the opposite stance, arguing that I would rather see sex than violence in video games. The editors put it under the heading ‘We Prefer Sex, Too!’.

In other news, Guild Wars has done something interesting. At least, I think it’s interesting. If you buy the original Guild Wars game (also known as Guild Wars: Prophecies), you’ll get four character slots. If you buy the expansion/sequel, Guild Wars: Factions, you’ll get four slots. If you buy one of the games and link it to the other, you get 6 slots in total, but you can mix and match characters and transfer items between them.

That all was just background information. The really interesting bit is that NCSoft has opened an “Online Store” you can access within Guild Wars. You can buy the game you don’t have…or you can buy an extra character slot for $9.99 each.

ardweden tells me another game did this before, but I still think it’s interesting.
