News and Happenings

I miss a few days because I’m busy with projects, and the blogosphere explodes with tons of news and happenings!

Here are some tidbits I found surfing about today:

The Arcade is opening its December round soon.  It’s usually a lag-fest, because it’s such a popular event.  So – if you’d prefer to be an ‘early bird,’ you can try to purchase one of their early access passes.  They are selling 20 of them, starting today at 5pm SLT.  Check out the link here if you want more information.  It’s a cool idea, and one that will be popular.  I know lots of people who would be willing to pay a bit extra to get in early and/or get in before the mad rush!

Serendipitously, as I was reading about the Arcade, and groaning internally about the horrible lag that always accompanies it, I came across another blogger’s thoughts about the whole ‘gacha’ scene in SL.  An interesting read on how gachas started and how they how changed.  Personally, I only play if it’s something I would just outright buy in the first place.  To me, some of the gacha vendors are like that impulse section at the cashier’s stand.  You end up with buys that you later regret.  And I too, have grown weary of the gachas where you only get pieces and parts of an outfit.  I’d rather just pay the L$ and get the one I want.  But that’s me.  🙂

I finished the MadPea Blood Letters Hunt (it’s still running until November 30 – if you don’t mind blood/gore and more than a bit of adult content, it was a ton of fun).  I made it to the prize room, after being lost in a maze for about half an hour.  But I did it – it was even more fun after finding out that a friend was doing the hunt as well, so we teamed up to finish the last day.  I’ve never done a hunt like this one before, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  MadPea is selling some mementos from the hunt, including the book set and the dead bodies, if you’re interested.  And I saw today that they will have a new hunt beginning on December 1.  This one is called ‘Scrumptious Sweets‘ so I’m hoping it will be refreshing change from all the detective work of this last hunt!

And the last piece of news – Sinse has released a new ‘Only Girl’ AO that comes with 5 dances.  Stop by and check it out – I’m always on the lookout for goods sits, stands, and walks, and AO’s are terrific source for those.
