The Perfect Way To Slice a Pizza 282

Suppose the harried waiter cuts the pizza off-center, but with all the edge-to-edge cuts crossing at a single point, and with the same angle between adjacent cuts. The off-center cuts mean the slices will not all be the same size, so if two people take turns to take neighboring slices, will they get equal shares by the time they have gone right round the pizza — and if not, who will get more?' This is useful, of course, if you're familiar with the concept of 'sharing' a pizza."

Shards of Dalaya is an absolute blast to play. Sure it's got dated graphics by WoW's standards... but the storyline, loot, zones, is 100% unique and much more fun than the game it was derived from.

Winter's Roar may have been halted 14months ago, but it came back with a vengeance (a legal one, I might add) a few months later, as Shards of Dalaya.
Incentives for getting friends etc to play is a nice touch, too. It all adds a unique experience (pun intended) to MMORPG'ing.

Not to mention that the development staff is also working on a new, standalone MMORPG, called Dawntide.
