They're starting, it seems like they are really starting: experimenting new directions in MMOs.
I have been periodically informing myself or trying out other games than those I play (well, mostly the one I play, EverQuest 2), looking for "something new" (hah), or rather, something not inline with the current direction of most MMOs. (i.e. yeah, level up, quest taken by the hand, grind... and that's that :P).

There they're starting to come:
- #GW2  - still in beta, release date announced for August 2012. (http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/06/28/guild-wars-2-announces-launch-date/)

- #TSW  - I just found out about, (http://www.thesecretworld.com/)
They're featuring it as "a game with no classes or levels" - I wonder how that looks like.

Oh its good trust me :) I've participated in all Beta Weekends (pre-purchased the game) and although its still not perfect it feels great. No dedicated DPS/healers/tanks, dynamic events, stunning graphics, HUGE areas to explore, absolutely massive cities and a really fun combat system. Performance is still somewhat of an issue however considering that a lot of graphics options were turned off during beta events I believe this game will be top-notch once it hits the release date. Here some videos I took from the game :)

This Origins of Malu sounds interesting: player housing, in the open world, player factions.
Oh, and perma-death PvP duels... umm - okay, I wouldn't accept one o'those! ... Nah.

Huh.
#writers  and readers, in case you're interested.
 
Ever wonder why you can buy a physical book in one country, but not in another? Or, why you can order the same book from Amazon in that same country where you can't buy it from a bookstore? Or, finally, why you can't get the e-book in one country no matter who you to try it from? P. Nielsen Hayden, in a note to a a +John Scalzi blog posting explains it all.

I think it's fantastic that FB are screwing up this badly right now. The timing couldn't be better with I/O and Events just released, this might be enough to get the more tech savvy but somewhat-FB-dependent to close their accounts.

And So It Begins - Release Date Announced

Earlier this year I told you that 2012 would be the Year of the Dragon, and that the next few betas would help us nail down our actual launch date. Well, after the results of our latest stress test, I’m happy to announce that we’re ready to nail down that date.

Guild Wars 2 will officially launch on Tuesday, August 28th.

This is an incredibly momentous day for the studio and for me personally. This journey began in 2007 when we first announced that we were beginning work on Guild Wars 2 and that you wouldn’t be hearing from us for a while. Then in 2010 we unveiled our manifesto for Guild Wars 2: a living breathing online world that challenges convention, that’s designed for fun instead of grind, and that brings social interaction to a new level in an online world.

Through all the long hours and hard decisions, we were bolstered by the knowledge that we were not in this alone. All along you’ve been there for us, cheering us on, supporting us when we needed it, testing early versions of the game, and above all, giving us your honest feedback every step of the way. Guild Wars 2 is a better game for all of the work that our community has put in.

Now that we’re just two months away from launch, we’ll spend our remaining time optimizing, polishing, and balancing the game, to ensure that we provide you with the best launch-day experience we possibly can.

To this end, I’m excited to announce that our next and final Beta Weekend Event is planned for July 20-22.

These are exciting times; we’re on the cusp of a new era in online roleplaying games, and we’re glad you’re on this journey with us.

We’ll see you in-game.

Again, I still have NO idea what to play. And I really hated the whole dodge gimmick.

Interesting! With a touch of Bradbury: 451 proposed as HTTP status code for censored documents. Well, documents for which access is restricted for legal reasons.
I think I'm going to subscribe to the mailing list to follow this.
 
Just posted an Internet-Draft.
