Revisiting Randomization

Back in 2009 I wrote a short piece about how I like Randomization in my games (pen and paper, digital and otherwise!) and once again in 2017 when Gevlon was discussing how he disliked Randomization . In that one I linked back to the first one, and in this one I did it to both.…

Checking For a Pulse

871 days ago I wrote a post called “Not Dead.. Yet”. That was the last post on my blog. One that was typically, and lovingly, maintained for the most part over 12 years, before skipping the last two. And sure, I was never really gone – I still used my blogroll to poke in at…

I’m Not DEAD yet!

Or putting myself in WRIP, quite yet. Although I probably should. I started taking online courses in my spare time, instead of writing, and working from home has been a drag. I have been hot and cold with gaming but work has extra responsibilities with this Pandemic, and when I get a spare hour I…

When Crazy Works Out

I finished X-COM 2, as I said I would last post. The final battle was a bit of a gong show in challenge, and I was down to two of six soldiers at the very end. It might had been worse, if my favorite hero (Jill Kelley) didn’t go berzerk. In the “perfect storm” of…

2019 I HAS REVIEW

In the past I had broken down an annual review into 4 posts to really focus on what I was reading and writing about. I am going to condense that this year. The blog was down this year – and pretty much tit for tat with my posting. I don’t get a huge amount of…

20 Years Later…

I got my first epic in Everquest. Rather, Project 1999, so it still had it’s shares of challenges. In fact I am guessing with Mercs and the new level limit you can probably solo the crap out of the entire process. Not on my EQ. It actually really felt like an accomplishment. There were many…

Movies are NOT Real Life

Either are video games. I have noticed this has been a challenge for some progressive reviewers of movies recently. That is too broad of a statement. Let me rephrase. This is the challenge with progressives as reviewers who can’t divorce make believe from reality. Society seems to already be struggling with facts vs feelings but…

Green is Live

Project 1999 launches its “piece de resistance” today and I just checked and it is currently up and running with 1750 players currently on the Green Server (there are 500 still sticking around on Blue). I did hum and hah about it but have decided to play a Shaman on the server. At least to…
