The celebrities just can't seem to get enough of Metaplace – the Herald's off the hook party last friday night was just the beginning. MMO pioneer, game guru, and virtual world designer Richard Bartle will be paying a visit to Metaplace Central Tuesday May 26 at 12 noon PDT.

If Bartle's talk is anything like his recent IMGDC keynote slides this will be a fascinating event.

    I personally both enjoy and hate user-created content.

    User-created content means I get to make whatever the heck I want and play with it.

    User-created content also means I have to wait six months for someone else to make reasonably decent content for me to enjoy. Level editors are nice and all but any developer that expects it to hold up a game on it’s own is sadly mistaken.
