Player-Generated Awesomeness

In keeping with the relatively new notion of transparent development, the makers of sandbox game Trove have let players in since the game hit alpha. Continuing the tradition, last week, the game's publisher Trion Worlds invited me to see the game in its current state during an in-office Community Day event. Fortunate timing that, since it allowed me to see lots of cool player-made content before it gets swept away by the end-of-alpha apocalypse.

Opinions are like...I'm not going to finish that sentence for the sake of the future of my career. But you know how it goes. And it seems a lot of people have opinions on The Secret World.

For a while I've been meaning to get a peek at ArcheAge, but somehow other things keep getting in the way.

Still, having spent hours since then playing the beta version from the beginning, I'll admit I'm glad I did it that way.
