Warcraft: Four years later

Wow.  Or, WoW. Four years of World of Warcraft.  I can’t believe it’s been four years.  With Blizzcon approaching, I’ve been thinking back on how Warcraft has impacted my life. At best I can be considered a casual player these…

Blizzcon

So. One week til Blizzcon. I’m starting to get excited! Believe it or not, for me, it’s more about getting away and seeing friends than it is about going to a video gaming convention.  WoW has made me a lot…

The Mighty Mouse (or lack thereof)

Hello, I’m a Mac. No, seriously.  I love Mac.  I love Apple.  I’ve had some issues with their retail stores, but it looks like the one closest to me is under new management or something and it’s like being in…

The Best Space Battles Part 7

Babylon 5 What’s a solidier to do when faced with illegal orders and a government that isn’t listening? Well, if you’re John Sheridan, you secede and declare your independence.  When that brings your own people down on you in a…

Spore!

The Best Space Battles Part 4

Star Wars: Episode IV This was it – the battle to end all battles.  The Rebel Alliance sending snub fighters against the Empire’s most powerful weapon ever: The Death Star! What?  You telling me you couldn’t bullseye something the size…
