Amateur video feels like the perfect MMO trailer

8 years ago, a Youtuber called Kazutosan uploaded a video aptly titled, “A Little FFXI Story,” to their channel. It is unclear whether or not they produced the video or if they simply grabbed it from another source, but it’s the only version of the tale you can currently find on the website. The video more »

I tried to play Oblivion, but keep playing Skyrim

One of our commenters asked for an update on how I’m enjoying Oblivion, in The Elder Scrolls series. Since someone has asked, I suppose it’s time I come clean and be honest. I just keep playing Skyrim. I haven’t even made it through the tutorial dungeon in Oblivion yet, and I’m not sure if I more »

My Skyrim child is more awesome than yours

My kid is way better than yours. Well, unless you installed the same Skyrim mod I installed. I’ve mentioned that I’m addicted to Skyrim mods already. The number of things the various mods can add are amazing, from new gameplay mechanics to entire new quests. Recently, I found a mod that lets you make any more »

“Unknown vessel, this is the U.F.V. Ospry. Identify yourself immediately, or we will be forced to presume hostilities and open fire.” The voice echoed around the empty pit, and Anthony sprinted the four steps to the console. A quick scan informed him he’d slept straight through the pre-programmed jumps, and had arrived within the Black more »

“Glad to see you finally found your sense of loyalty, crewman,” Hawthorne’s grim tone greeted Anthony as he made his way into the navigation pit. “Not loyalty,” Anthony retorted as he moved to the navigation console. “Spite. I can handle a lot of things, deadman, but I’m not going to take some assholes trying to more »

He engaged the auto-pilot, and jumped to his feet. There was no way he could respond to a fight from the pit, he knew, so he had to trust the auto-pilot to get him out of there as soon as the FTL was charged. He also had to hope the repair drone had been working more »

Three jumps later, and the closest thing to a station he’d found was an automated refueling ship. It had been welcome, since the ship was running low, but it hadn’t been the sort of place he could scrap the ship and be done with the whole thing. Not that the ship’s former pilot wanted him more »

“Have I ever mentioned how much I hate Bug-tech?” Anthony responded, moving to the bulkhead to grab the toolbox. “How one of them invented those damn teleportation devices, I’ll never know. I thought they’d be too busy decorating their ships with the bodies of their young.” “Hey!” Hawthorne chided, though Anthony didn’t even turn to more »

“You can’t repair the engines by cutting through the phase-connection couplets,” the Bug’s hissing voice clacked through his mandibles. “You have to re-route the power through the power reduction ports in order to pulse it properly.” “In case you hadn’t noticed,” Anthony responded, “the phase-connection couplets are burnt through. Maybe if you’d replaced them even more »

I can’t play non-Hearthfire Skyrim

I’ve mentioned my love of Skyrim, and my love of modding the crap out of Skyrim. Every so often, something goes horridly wrong. When you’re going through the code of a game and making it do something it was never intended to do, that’s going to happen. Once, I started a new game, and the more »

I’ve already started another new game In Skyrim

Remember how I was saying that I keep starting new games in Skyrim? And that it would probably not take too long before I started yet another new game? I started another new game in Skyrim already. I don’t really know why. The Argonian bard was fun. But then I decided I wanted to play more »

I keep playing Minecraft instead of working

Now that I’m a highly paid writer for a high quality gaming site, I have certain expectations placed upon me. No longer can I simply run free amongst the mists of my magical glade, allowing the spray of water from the nearby river to coat my voluptuous body with a fine sheen. No longer can more »
