I have been kind of slacking off with my efforts of watching and continuing to cover Entropia Universe’s updates. I want to make sure to keep my finger on the pulse of that sector of the virtual world as I see it as pretty important. Entropia Universe is still one of the top MMO Game/Virtual Worlds with a viable virtual economy.

I will go in soon to take a look around and to spend some of my accumulated PEDs (Project Entropia Dollars).
