2014 In Review: Best Moments Of The Year


Let’s look at the year with rose tinted glasses, or perhaps a glass of hard liquor. As with any year, we had a lot of bad and a lot of good, so let’s take a minute to focus on the good stuff. 1. Goodbye Mythic Entertainment This one is a bit cruel, but perhaps the […]

Top 5: Most Disappointing Moments of the Year


With the year coming to an end, it’s time to start taking stories and sticking them into categories. Since I’m a well known optimist, I decided to start this month’s lists off with a look at the year’s greatest disappointments.

Diaries From Marvel Heroes: Arrow Turrets Galore


It’s time again for another Diaries From series, and it just so happens that the week that I planned on discussing Marvel Heroes was the week of another big update. There is no winning in this world.

Those of you who read this website know that I hate to kick a guy when he’s down, so let me just preface this by saying that I believe Brad McQuaid is a good person, that Pantheon is being developed with good intentions, and that the man behind it is overall a nice guy. So without […]

Beta Perspective: RPG MO


The best thing about old school gaming is that no matter how old I get, it stays just the same.

MMO Rant: Vote of No Confidence In Trion Worlds


I’ve been sitting at my computer trying to come up with a word to describe Trion Worlds, and so far the best that I’ve come up with is “impressed.” Not impressed in a good way, if you’ve noticed that this is a rant, but more impressed in the sense that you’ve walked into your home […]
