So, Electronic Arts makes a game. 1. To advertise this game, which is some riff off of Dante's Inferno, they craft a series of publicity stunts around the various circles of Hell and sins and so on/so forth. One of these involves a comic book convention, Comic-Con, where EA tells horny guys people to take […]

Tears and heartache, nothing more
Tears and heartache, nothing more

October will hold the fifth anniversary of when I joined Second Life under the name I came to refer to as my "main" account. I dabbled in it under various other identities prior to that but I never understood what it was really for and would often get bored after a few minutes (or an […]

A tale of two guilds
A tale of two guilds

In an earlier entry I complained about the sense of culture-shock for a casual player in World of Warcraft when you switch from the largely solo-friendly leveling grind to the explicitly group-focused endgame.

On playing MMOGs and being anti-social

Two weeks ago, I hit level 80 on my priest in World of Warcraft. This was a bit of a momentous occasion for me, not because it was the first time I hit the level cap, but because it was the first time I hit the level cap when another expansion wasn't arriving imminently. While […]

I've got the breath of a last cigarette on my teeth
I've got the breath of a last cigarette on my teeth

So an addendum to the health fun of the past week; nothing was getting better with regards to my throat infection, which went back and forth between tonsillitis– oh wait strep throat maybe– over and over, and yesterday I woke up with my throat so swollen and painful that I couldn't speak or swallow my […]
