Being a blogger I'm naturally just that desperate for attention I'll click any link that might come back round to me. So I did and what came up was...interesting.
Zergwire appears to be some kind of game news aggregator with a heavy bias towards MMOs. It's hard to say more than that because it also has one of the cleanest faces I've ever seen. There is almost no information on the front end other than the pics, the links and the sign-up.
If you dig about a bit, though, you get to the Mission Statement that's buried in the "About Us" link. No need to follow that hypertrail. Here's the whole thing:
Well, I haven't signed up. I don't know who they are and I can't find out. A Google search brings up pretty much nothing other then reflexive links to the game entries on the site itself. There's an IP/DNS search that tells you Zergwire operates out of Scottsdale, Arizona but not much more.
None of the "is this website safe to use?" checksites I know have even tested it. Because I'm hyper-cautious I declined to sign up - yet. I am intrigued, though.
All the referrals I received came from the EverQuest page, which, as you can see from the screenshot below, has some very nice thumbnails pointing to recent posts I've written about the game. Also, for some reason, one that I did about LotRO, although to be fair I probably did include EQ in the Labels for that one.
There's a lot of Massively in there, a couple from The Ancient Gaming Noob and something from ECTMMO. Checking the GW2 page there's one for me, one for Syp and two for Jeromai. It looks as though these are being hand-picked rather than populated by some kind of algorithm but who knows?
Anyway, it looks like it could be a useful addition to the somewhat depleted resources of the MMO news cupboard. The look of the thing is very professional and attractive and the content is fairly current and reasonably accurate. Attribution is front and center.
If anyone from Zergwire is reading this and wants to explain more about how it all works the comment section's at your disposal!
