    I have never played this game.

    My mom who lives miles away is obsessed with this game. I hate the fact that ever since she has been working as a host to make lindens which supports her addiction, we talk less and less over the phone. Anytime I voice my concerns, she loses it and we end having a fall out. She...

    Second Lies

    Second Life. It all promised so much. Start anew, forget your old life, be who you want to be. One thing the advertisement failed to point out is that First Life losers are doomed to be losers in Second Life too.I have met 3 types of people in SL:Those who talk to you a bit, add...

    I've only used it once

    or twice and it's kind of confusing for me. I like that you get to move the character around for once but I don't like that it tends to lag. This may be my computer's fault or something else, but I just feel that it is way too slow at times.

    Stay Away From Sl!

    Keep your sanity. It's not the life you dream of and people are either snobbos or shy people. Say hi and people walk right past you. Even if you get a home, majority of the time your neighbors don't even say hi to you!  Ughh..depressing :(
