I'm always looking for new virtual worlds to dive into. I've tried so many that I won't list them all. This morning I read about vSide on the Metaversed - vSide Offers a New Twist on Virtual World Advertising. This is the first time I've ever heard of it. It appears to be just like SL in the sense of teleporting, mobility, and communication with two big differences... vSide is AIM chat capable and appears to be musically motivated.
They take their music very seriously and is the apparent driving force behind all the different venues offered. Bands, live music performances and more! You can bet I'm dragging Hawks with me. :) We love live music in SL. I bet that with a world that exists just for the music, it'll ROCK HARD! It's currently in Alpha testing, so it may be hard to get in, but you can sign up to receive an email when the doors open.
