Modern Warfare 2 – Stop Feeding the Hype Machine

Guest poster Julien chimes in on the eve of Modern Warfare 2.  Enjoy! (Disclaimer – The opinions in this post do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Channel Massive or their sponsors…blah, blah, blah.) A mere few hours remain until the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and the hype build-up around this [...]

More video game regulations to come?

We wanted change?  Well it’s coming, and it’s coming fast.  Democrat Joe Baca of the House of Representatives has proposed a new piece of federal legislation known as the “Video Game Health Labeling Act of 2009″.  Since this piece of legislation is federal, it means if this thing passes we can expect nationally and not [...]

So Much PC vs Console Nerd Rage. So Little Time.

I’m not sure why this had to turn into a full-blown PC vs Console gaming debate when it should have just strictly stayed on the focus of MMO’s, but I’ll play along just for fun…  ”We also have the Crysis series as a PC only game ” And how many PC’s were actually able to [...]

Why do we seek a WoW killer?

Tonight, as I was playing LoTRO, then again while at the movies, I had an epiphany. The reason we seek is time. And that same time is the driving force behind 99% of the migraines that developers get while trying to make us a miracle game. If you think about it, time is the driving [...]

Cash for Coolness

SW:TOR RMT is on its way.  RMT’s a big subject for most folks these days. Personally, I work for a living, so paying $14.95 (x4) is just what I do since that’s my hobby.  I don’t drink much, I gave up smoking in 2005, drugs are for people who have no better way to enjoy [...]

Unbelievable audacity, or just out of touch?

I was listening to one of my regular podcasts, and since I have about 35 a week that I go through it is odd that something struck me as a “What the hell are you thinking?” moment. I don’t regularly visit blogs. College and work take up far too much time for me to read [...]

Ass-hattery: Is it localized or industry wide?

Today was another day like most. I was over in an area of Northrend, killing some quest mobs, pretty much doing the usual. So I take down a Lasher, loot it and the instant my character stands back up, some ass-hat runs over, harvests it, and runs off. No asking, no waiting to see if [...]

It’s all about the racers… or is it?

OK, so 30+ years of loving gaming. Well, what have I seen? And, no, I don’t mean that as a “my e-nis is longer than yours” type comment.  What I can tell you as a PVPer, lore whore, artist, writer, blogger (no those are by no means the same), I can tell you that I [...]

A New Kind of “Ism”

Bob, a respected member of the Channel Massive guild on World of Warcraft, wrote in to share a story of how he discovered a whole new kind of bigotry when he was “snubbed” at an activities group interview.  The M-Team will officially comment on Bob’s email in Episode 57; however, we felt that it was [...]
