I quite like it, can't help but feel it about 2 years too late to really gain any popularity though.

BBC writeup. Bit cursory really. Hopefully the reg will dish up something juicer later.

I'd forgotten about this. Will take a peek tonight (well, tomorrow probably, as work christmas party tonight.)

A quick read-up of it and I think it's more meant to appeal to the current younger generation of gamers?

i concur with the comments above its just a glorified 3d chat room that suffers from far too many blokes harrasing any one that looks female. Also the fact you have to spend REAL money to get anything for your apartment or clothes for your avatar is stupid. its like second life where you cant make your own money!!.

Live revitalised its blade system .. ok the friends part SUCKS!!! but omg home inst anything like that i was under the impression it was going to be a new interface not a terrible bolt on avatar chat program.. Ok you can play chess with people and interact like that with it but ... what's the point.

Its as equally useless or useful as any other chat programme, depending on how you see them.

Could see it taking off more if you could run it as a text based system in the background whilst playing games.

Plus whats the point of any game? Entertainment?

i agree with Penny Arcade the crowed any female avatars get is freaky and they are all making inuendos to them... its more than likely a bloke as the female avatar... so why do it.

Occasionally hilarious review from EG. Shocked, I say shocked that no trickery users mentioned the club setup fees!

I was too shocked to tell you!

I liked the ambiguous statement along the lines of 'we may or may not charge you further for setting up a group'.

Thank god Apple didn't make a console, otherwise their "home" would be telling you which games to install and what to play!
