Ten Things I’ve Learned On Vacation

1. A five star restaurant listed in Fodor’s doesn’t necessarily mean that it tastes good. 2. Don’t be afraid to eat at places named “Hoover’s Beef Palace.” You might be pleasantly surprised. 3. I want a hot tub in my bedroom. 4. We’re here. We’re geeks. And THE FUTCHA IS ARRRRRRS! 5. And I’m soooo [...]

Going back to Cali. Cali. Cali.

I don’t think so… Sometimes the gods grant you great gifts. Sometimes those gifts don’t come exactly when you want them to. I just got invited to the AoC beta and I’m heading off to California for a week.  With a 12gig+ download size, I doubt I’ll even get to install it before I leave. [...]


Okay, so here’s my dilemma.  I was really all about Age of Conan‘s War Mammoth.  I had to have it.  But the more I think about it, the more I think I’d prefer the Rhino as my preorder bonus mount.  According to the Funcom site, different retailers offer different mounts with their pre-orders.  Wal-Mart and [...]

“Plenty of Life Left After WoW”

No, I’m not referring to the rest of Mark’s life after reaching level 70, I’m talking about some recent developer comments made at this year’s more understated Leipzig Conference. Representatives from Cryptic Studios (City of Heroes & Villains, upcoming Marvel MMO), Turbine (Asheron’s Call, D&D Online, Lord of the Rings Online), EA Mythic (Dark Age [...]

It is with deep regret that I…

reset the Release-O-Meter for Age of Conan to Q1 of 2008.  Apparently the alpha/beta feedback was enough to force some re-factoring.  As much as this crushes me, for it means I will face a cold dark winter with no new killer MMO to play, it does mean that FUNCOM is taking the high road by [...]
