My Life as a Newb: The World of Online Gaming

This is me, roaming around the world of Glitch. See how afraid I look?

I married a gamer. I married a man who, quite sensibly, refused to play World of Warcraft because he knew without a doubt that it would suck him in, ruin him for life, and lead to divorce. I have watched him play and beat many games, and then, three years ago he caved and played WoW. Luckily he had sufficiently prepared himself, and it sucked him in for but a brief spell before we gave up much of our lives to home ownership and parenthood.

This year I was invited by GeekMom Melissa to get in on a new MMORPG while it was still in Beta. She posted about Glitch when it opened up to the internet en masse a few weeks back. This was my first experience of online gaming, and it made my husband positively giddy to sign up with me so that we could play together.
