I Hate Mila!

Mild mannered bloggers over at Are We New At This? and High Latency Life are tackling an important issue in blognation. Why all the hate on WoW? I mean, it has eleventy (.2) billion subscribers! Something must be going right over at ActiBlizzEnron. It is a curious (and good) question in many ways. Chris Cavelle…

How Not to Blog

Sorry, Peter Moore, your “blog” is a pretty big embarrassment. I was surfing EA sites to find anyplace to complain that they stopped their major sports title development for the PC. Yes, I have complained about it a couple times already. I really want to play some football. 1) Most of the comments on that…

Film Fund

Fun thing about being ‘successful’ and making contacts – I was asked, and agreed to, sit on a board of directors for a film fund. I just signed back the paperwork today. It sat on my desk for a week, and to be honest movies aren’t any more of my forte than games – I…

Premium Market Position

While our MMO companies battle for the mainstream dollar, I can’t help but wonder if any are forward thinking to the premium dollar customers – or if that market even exists in the gaming world. In the simplest of comparisons think Price Chopper vs Whole Foods. The first provides basic food at cut rate prices.…

Deferred Success

This title stems from educators wanting to remove kids from an ‘F’, or ‘Failing’ grade. No more failing – just deferred success! Clearly the change in terminology will make kids all become hugely successful. This Epic Defer is part of a longer list of deferrments by public offcials who manage powerful unionized employees (the same unions that…

Inventory Full

A friend and old guildmate of mine has jumped into blognation over at Inventory Full.  I suppose technically he is a current guildmate from WoW (I am unsubbed, but details, details) and we always enjoyed parlaying in and out of game about games and other fun and relevant stuff. He only has a couple posts…

From Russia With Love

I have been getting an inordinate amount of spam from Russia, written in Russian. Anyone else noticing this? Sadly, I deleted them all before running a google translate, but I’ll be sure to remember to fix that when I get another stack.

Lack of Inspiration

Blargh, I tell you. Blargh! I find it extremely difficult to write about gaming when I am not gaming. It’s frustrating as I see all of you poking your noses in here to see what I’m writing about – and no doubt that comes with heavy dissapointment. Bored and Unispired Gameaholics Anonymous (BUGA) chatter, after…

A Survey request from EA/Bioware

I know a lot of people hate EA. I am in the small minority who have really enjoyed their products, and haven’t been dissappointed when purchasing their games. Of course I do a lot of research before buying games, and never buy a game by who it is from – but rather on the merits…

Lighter Topic

I am part of a WoW guild. I have spoken briefly about it in the past in a few topics, but nothing major (you know, the one I used to be GM of, yadda yadda). It’s going through a change right now, and the people that founded the guild are mostly gone. It was a…

Don’t Be a Hater!

The lawyer-in-training is coming out (heh, no pun intended) in me today. In law school, professors hammer into us the fact that “words matter.” A lot of time and effort is spent poring over words and their meanings; often disputes will turn upon a word that you and I think has a fairly settled definition.…

Un-Expectations

I took my 4 year old son and my wife (or did they take me?) to the movie UP! over the weekend. First off, I am loving the glorious 3D action that is making it’s way back into theaters. It is good to see the industry figuring out that if you don’t enhance the experience, it’s…

Introducing (the) Pope

A friend of mine is going to start adding a post or two, here or there on this site. The thought came by in a discussion – he reads a lot of gaming blogs and wouldn’t mind sharing his thoughts. I thought it would be fun to give him an outlet. I have known Pope…

Bing Vs. Google

Bing Search: I has PC 1.       Lack of consistency on offence, defence has PC’s Welsh in bind.. 2.       Dell’s All-in-One PC Has the Guds, Design to Compete with iMac… 3.       I HAS PC 4.       Property: HAS PC member – semanticweb.org.. 5.       Motorola’s Renew has PC Magazine’s GreenTech Seal of Approval.. Google Search: I has PC…

Yay Spam?

Oh, the joys of Askimet. After the break, I’ll show you my latest and greatest last 10 spam messages which were caught by the automatic filter. I “de-linked” them but kept everything else in tact (yes, there are some URLs in there – plenty, actually) so if SPAM makes you sick, or you do not…
