Repopulation: Complexity

My house is a mess. Dishes are scattered across the counter, laundry is undone, the carpets need vacuuming … but my genetic engineering, chemistry, culinary arts and diplomacy are all nearing or above 200. My entertainment skills are coming along decently, I am well stocked with DNA and tissue samples, and I have finally found [&hellip

QuakeCon 2015: Let’s Get Meta with a Conference Review

QuakeCon 2015 featured all the usual fixings of the now 20-year old conference. Sure, faces are older and new. The games have changed, as have the versions of DirectX and OpenGL required and applicable case mods. Heck, there’s now even a corporate overlord in ZeniMax (owner of Bethesda Softworks, etc.). The camaraderie remains in spades. [&hellip

Repopulation: A New Addiction

I woke up at 4:30 this morning. I was tired, it was dark, but my bad leg was on fire due to the weather so I just got up. I’d caught up with J.C. Smith last night, so I thought I would spend a few minutes with the Repopulation before breakfast. I patched up the [&hellip

Cabal 2: First Impressions

I missed the first Cabal. I’m not sure why, but it just never crossed my gaming vision. From what I’ve been seeing said in Cabal 2, I wish I’d given it a try, it sounds like something I would have enjoyed.  Cabal 2 is an action oriented MMO, with fabulous visual effects, and a variety [&hellip

Quakecon 2015 Case Mod Winner

QuakeCon 2015: Brawlhalla Anyone?

After indulging in a few adult beverages last night I thought it was a good idea to start shout casting at the BYOC section of QuakeCon.

Heart of Thorns: Small Additions Bring Big Changes

As an avid Guild Wars player since the original title came out in 2005, I obviously had an obligation to move on to Guild Wars 2 when it was released 7 years later.
