Former Massively writer and current alpaca farmer Rubi Bayer
sent in her tribute to the soon-to-end Glitch
"I still remember falling in love with Glitch
when it came out," Rubi weeps. "It wasn't just a cutesy visual treat -- it was fun and engaging, and I was just crazy about it. It was a blow to hear that it's closing down. Thanks for the fun, Tiny Speck
, and here's to a bright future to each of you who gave us Glitch
There, there, Rubi. Good luck reaching the "acceptance" stage!
Little-known fact: Due to the shifting nature of the international date line, it is always Halloween somewhere in the world! As proof of this, reader Trevor sent in the following screenshot of himself and his pet dog Scoob hanging out in Guild Wars 2
A mystery is afoot, Trevor! Better grab some Scoob snacks and get to it! We're guessing pirate ghosts.
It's a cape! It's a blanket! It's a... Clanket?
OK, the devs in City of Heroes
might not be on top of their naming game, but you have to appreciate the humor (and attention to detail) in this billboard ad. Even superheroes need their comfort gear, yes?
Reader Quinch submitted this to us with the brief and yet appropriate file name of "WTF." Nothing more needs to be said.
