Bit of a special edition Coffee Grinds today as half of the article is written by `Brennil and the other half by Certis. It grew out of conversations we've been having recently about WoW, gaming in our lives, and how it affects our relationship.
I apologize for the lack of content this week, the world has been conspiring againstÃ‚Â some of us gettingÃ‚Â any writing done. Karla is hard at work on the next Quest Log and after being out of town two days in a row I'm stuck catching up with a back log of work.
You're a loser.
That's right, I'm talking to you. Sometimes you lose when you really, really wanted to win. The law of averages state that the more games you play, the more chances you give yourself to experience the crushing despair of defeat.
Intellivision, still better than watching UT2K4 flicker on the Phantom.
I think we can all agree that IÃ‚'m both uncreative and lazy. That being the case, IÃ‚'m stealing ElysiumÃ‚'s E3 awards article format and in a couple weeks IÃ‚'ll talk about it like it was all my idea.
With the usual post-Christmas drought of games upon us I've been trying to catch up with a few titles that got lost in the shuffle. First up was Sphinx, a quirky little platform game that tries really, really hard to be Zelda with a few twists.
It's been a good three weeks since I last talked about starting our pen and paper D&D campaign and I figured it's about time for a status report. Our first two sessions were played over a couple Sundays with an experienced DM by the name of Eric and his wife Sigrid who was new to the game.
I hope everyone has enjoyed (or maybe are still enjoying) their holidays. I'm trying to dodge work until the new year but I have a feeling my clients won't cut me much slack if their computers catch fire...
Sometimes you've just got to let it all hang out.Like a fat man in a shirt three sizes too small for him, I publicly offer myself up for ridicule so that you can feel better about yourselves and your place in society. No, I haven't joined the Shriners. I tried to but apparently you have to be an old man with no shame to join so I forwarded them on to Elysium.
A big helping of too much is what I have on my plate right now. Damn publishers and their Thanksgiving releases I say, damn them all for not spacing these games out over the spring and summer months when we have room for some excellent games. Mind you, things are pretty good when youÃ‚'re complaining about too many good games coming out all at once.
I canÃ‚'t take it anymore. If I have to hunt down one more item so that I can open a door, get a key from a lazy NPC, kick-start a generator or crank a wheel IÃ‚'m going to lose it. Disguising a treasure hunt as gameplay is slowly killing my taste for console games.
