The guys over at the Ironman Mode: The Blog sent a random email to me over the weekend, asking for a bit of airtime. (Or whatever the digital blog equivalent is.) I don’t usually care about such requests, but this one is worth writing a bit about.
I’m actually not all that interested in Ironman challenges in my own gaming, but I appreciate their aim of blogging about self-imposed hardcore gaming and trying to use that as a platform for some humor and Child’s Play donations. It’s nice to see players playing games their way instead of following the golden path, and doing a bit for charity en route. I’ve thought about doing a “MMO travelogue” blog before (gotta use those 5000-and-counting screenshots somehow, right?), so I can totally understand the impulse to get out there and share a themed blog.
And hey, Minecraft is their most popular title so far, so that’s some bonus points right there.
