Fluff or Grunge? Beauty or Beasty?

So after 30+ years of gaming, it finally hits me.. the type of game I enjoy… Grungy with good dash of Beasty’ness.  I realized while romping around in LoTRO last night that one of the major reasons I am disappointed, is the graphics.  There is far too much fluff.  The game is gorgeous.  That is [...]

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 [...]

My Hopes and Dreams For 2009 and Beyond…

***cue mystical music*** Top Ten lists seem to be all the rage this time of year.  Usually these involve “bold predictions” about the next year or they look back and list all of the cream or the crap from the past. I’m not one to delve much into the past.  I got a D- in [...]

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 [...]

Whining about whiners

Mines of Moria has been out just under a month and the experience has been great for me, but not for all.  The forum trolls have returned with a vengeance and it seems this also relates to the Halloween zombie event of WoW.  Basically, a lot more pop culture references have been popping up in [...]

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 [...]
