As you probably don’t know, the White Buffalo is an executive in the electronic games business. I still find this to be tremendously ironic, given how he followed Big Chilly and I into the biz; now we’re out of it while he is a playa.
He’s now in charge of THQ’s online gaming division, and has asked me to help publicize the birth of his new baby, SLINGDOT.COM. I have no involvement with either THQ or SLINGDOT.COM, but the WB is my boy and so I hope you will join me in checking out his new creation. It is, as Kant might say, a universal imperative… or is that categorical?
I can’t help but note that he ignored my advice to launch on December 7th with some very tasteless references to Pearl Harbor. It remains a mystery as to why my brilliance goes sadly unappreciated in so many diverse fields….
Dec 2, 2005: Slingdot.com goes live!
SlingDot is a gaming community built around on-line casual gaming, chat, contests, cash and prizes. SlingDot features a Free Games section open to unlimited play for all gamers over the age of 12 and a members-only gaming area called the DotSpot. DotSpot membership is available Dec 15th and is only $4.95 a month or $29.95 a year. Full membership benefits include access to exclusive games, member contests, enhanced chat features, no advertising, and greater opportunities to win cash and prizes.
All levels of gamers earn Dots for their play. The better you are, the more you’ll earn, and DotSpot members earn triple the Dots of free account players. Beginning Feb 1, 2005 Dots can be used to enter daily, weekly, and monthly drawings for cold hard cash. In coming months SlingDot will unveil many other benefits and personalization items that players can access using their Dots. And as the old saying goes – he who dies with the most Dots wins! How many Dots you got?
Dec 2 is a soft launch for the site with more features and games being added every day. Visit us, check the news area for upcoming additions, and share your thoughts with us.
