I'm totally unimpressed by everything I've seen from Zynga so far.

Yeah, honestly, Zynga's games do not really engage me. I tried their ever-popular 'Farmville' game for a while, mostly to research a game I had considered creating.

It sucks.

No, really, it sucks.

Ignoring their blatant commercialism (when, say, a huge McDonald's balloon, complete with golden crotches appears on your farm for a few days), the gameplay itself was vapid. I found it excrutiating to play, and finally gave up (in thanks) after I decided I just didn't care about working out details on my own game anymore.

I do not understand their popularity at all.

They're popular because they know how to get their users to consent to constantly spamming each other. That's about it.

"Vapid" is an excellent description of their gameplay.

NimbleBit may seem primitive when you compare Tiny Tower's screen shots to those of Dream Heights, but when you play the game you realize that there's an inherent sort of charm to it. Their "bitizens" are *cute*. The pixellated graphics make the game addictively engaging in a way that is difficult to explain.

Zynga is giving them the Wal-Mart treatment, and they will probably succeed.
NimbleBit will probably now have to sell itself to some other big game studio who has the resources to carry out a successful lawsuit against Zynga.

I tried to play Dragons of Atlantis. The UI was sooo disasterously bad. Hated it.

So, is anyone here actually playing Glitch (http://www.glitch.com)? I'm very intrigued with it, and would love to try it, but they have a very long waiting period. If someone could toss an invite my way, I'd surely appreciate it.

(Oh, said invite should be send to fleeb@fleeb.com, if interested).

Heh, well, hopefully, we'll get a chance to play together. I sure hope 'fleeb' is still available.

Dunno....fleeb is an extremely popular username, you know.  You should act quickly to reserve it.

It is a popular username, as it turns out.

But until I can get into the game, I can't reserve the name.

As a fallback, though, I'll use fleebness.

Looks like I got an invite for Glitch!

Once I'm in, I'll see if I have any invites available.

That is one bizarre looking game.

It's a somewhat bizarre playing game, too. Fourth level already, in the tiny amount of time I've had to play it. Mostly, I've just run around petting, watering, and harvesting stuff, but I can see how this game grows.

I wonder how I might get a hold of the_mgt. I want to extend an invite to him, since he's the one that introduced Glitch to me, but he doesn't seem to monitor Uncensored actively.

You can often find him on irc.citadel.org on #citadel

Ah, alrighty. I'll look there.

Had been to hospital for almost a week, fleeb.

You can use my emailadress here, though.

Thanks, I'll send the invite post-haste. In the game, I'm 'A Fleebness'.
