I just finished nominating Wizard101 for the 2nd Annual Game Developers Choice Online Awards. Wow, was that difficult. I had to establish a Gamasutra account and received a warning that I should only be an industry professional to nominate. I figure being a Freelance Writer for Beckett's Massive Online Gamer is . . . kind of . . . well . . . qualifying? I guess we'll find out! LOL. If you're a video game industry professional and love Wizard101, then by all means go out and nominate our favorite game for a few awards!
You may remember the video footage from last year that I got of the Online Awards. :/
It was amazing being there last year . . . if I close my eyes, I can still see myself hanging with Wu, Leesha Darkheart, and Beau. Good times regardless that Wizard101 didn't win. As Kiersten put it last year, "Having our Community and Customer Support team judged along side industry heavy hitters like Blizzard, Sony, CCP and ArenaNet is an honor in itself, and both humbling and awe-inspiring to us all." I'd love to see that happen again (only this time win ;)).
Best of Luck, KingsIsle! I hope you get some recognition out there in the gaming world for all your efforts.
