    So, finally went about viewing the Sony presentation of Home, the 3-D, online, virtual community being planned for the PS3. Interesting concept...Second Life for the PS3 perhaps? The PlayStation Network does need to offer something to differentiate itself from Xbox Live (besides the ultimate in...

    Neverwinter Nights 2

    Anyone interested in Neverwinter Nights 2? I've been a fan of Bioware's Baldur's Gate stuff and their original Neverwinter Nights (though, somewhat disappointed by that), but I'm a little excited by the revamping done by Obsidian for this new installment. A major thing is that the graphics...

    Neverwinter Nights 2 Delayed

    Atari officially announced that Neverwinter Nights 2 would be delayed to later October. Mostly I hope they polish the single-player campaign. Multiplayer's great and all, but I really miss those really deep and lengthy single-player PC RPG-days of Baldur's Gate. Neverwinter Nights is great...

    Blockbuster 360 Rental Policy

Apparently, my Visa check card wasn't good enough. So, I just...

    Quit Smoking...need help!

    Hello, I just quit smoking today...cold turkey. Some people say that's a bad idea, others think its the only way, but dammit, if George W. Bush can quit drinking on a whim, I can do as well if not better!!! Anyway, if anyone can distract me with advice or whatever, it would be much...

    Heh heh, I love getting cautionary emails. This one's from Gamefly after I rented a 360 game from 'em: As you know, the Xbox 360 is a high-end gaming console that uses state-of-the-art technology. As stated in the user's manual, it is important that the console not be moved in any way while a...

    Snakes on a Plane Format

    I thought I'd have a little fun and start using the simple, honest title format being used for Snakes on a Plane and translate other movies into that format. For instance: Deep Rising (been on Encore a lot) - Squids on a Boat Die Hard - Terrorists in a Skyscraper Speed - Bomb on a Bus

    Hey, I read about this game coming to the PC initially, and it looks like it'll be coming to the 360 as well. The profile I read seems very interesting, and with some original story elements. Anybody know much about it?
