So before I go to bed I thought I would post my thoughts on the RIFT beta 5 I participated in this week. Let’s just get it out of the way now: I love this game, and pre-ordered the collectors edition + 6 months game time. As for why, it’s quite complex really. The UI is almost a direct cut & paste from WoW, the art style is almost a complete cut & paste from EQ (not...
Top 10 Reasons I think Rift is going to be the...
10) The world is ready for an MMO with next-gen graphics. WoW is starting to look outdated. 9) WoW has been on top for too long now. A large chunk of old WoW players such as myself are sick of it and have either already quit or are looking for a reason to. 8) Building off of the WoW fanbase will be easy since the interfaces look nearly identical. Rather than scaring players away with something...
I’ve been toying around with this website at work today. Pretty legit stuff. It’s a lot like Spotify which has been rumored to hit the US for like forever and day now but still hasn’t, so maybe Grooveshark will tide us over for a while. Sure, everyone has a Pandora account, but don’t you get annoyed when you’re looking specifically for a certain artist, and not a...
Yeah, I'd probably run away from Creed too.
Uh, buh... what?
Proving yet again that women can't be gamers.
Just kidding, but seriously this is awesome. http://gizmodo.com/5740760/japanese-toilets-have-crazy-video-games-to-play-while-peeing
"Not On Time" Warner Cable
Well it took weeks, and apparently a hole drilled into a wall in my room but reports from my roommate suggest that I finally have internet again. If this is true, I can’t wait for the glorious return to TF2 I can make tonight.
How to spend money like a pro.
Here’s a rundown of the last 24 hours worth of my spending: Lunch Friday: Freebirds - Estimated cost $8 Fun Fact: The guy who made my burrito had a lengthy conversation with me about how much college sucks… against my will. Friday Afternoon: Petsmart - Estimated Cost $45 Fun fact: I bought a log for my chamaleon to crawl under that he probably never will, because he only likes...
Stuck in Digital Music Technology.
Cameron is sitting next to me being a homo. The teacher is rambling. It’s pretty boring.

Gotta catch em all!

Good luck marketing this one to PC gamers. http://www.gamefreaks.co.nz/2011/01/10/kinect-to-be-integrated-into-windows/

AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity The Ball Beat Hazard Darksiders Devil May Cry 4 (A replay for me, but the PC version has extra features that the 360 version didn’t, like a turbo mode that spawns more enemies and a ultra hard mode beyond what the 360 had) Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition (I started this game when it came out and then got eyefinity which it...
XKCD blew my mind.
I get off at noon.
And I think I’m going to take the rest of the day to play games. Thanks to the steam holiday sale I have a massive back-catalog of games that need to be played (and let’s be honest, my record for finishing single-player titles is atrocious anyways, I already had a pretty massive back-catalog I could have resorted to, now it’s just legendary). If anyone wants to game, hit me up on...
Like Hamlet, all about words, words, words.
I find certain words to be particularly awesome. I just thought I would share some fun ones. Don’t be ashamed if you don’t know them, I had to look up most of these at some point too(and occasionally still forget some of them). Grab your dictionary and let’s kick this pig. pulchritude obambulate pedantic concise hippopotomonstrosesequippedaliophobia ...
On Motion Controls.
Okay… I have to rant. There’s been a trend growing now, for quite a while. With the Wii, with PS3 six-axis, with the Kinect, or the motion-plus… this movement that seems to be focused solely on movement, ironically. Now, I don’t mean to imply that motion controls don’t serve a purpose and they’ve certainly drawn countless people who don’t tend to...
