  • Dragon Age: Origins Day 1

    Yesterday Dragon Age: Origins was released and since I had it pre-loaded from Steam, I was ready to play when it unlocked.  Well I say ready to play , but what I really mean is I was ready to go OCD on acquiring my pre-order / collectors edition DLC. I was working when it […]

  • Sunday Drive

    I took a quick inventory of my entertainment activities in the last month and was a actually a bit surprised at what I have done. First, I played a month of retail Champions Online, I had fun but as I neared level 30 the game started to feel a bit stale. The worst part is […]

  • Gaming life and burnout

    World of Warcraft Burnout. My gaming life has been shaken up a bit lately. Fist I was starting to feel some serious WoW burnout right when Champions Online arrived.  Then I started a new job, and my gaming time went from anytime (for as long as I wanted), to only a few hours when […]

After further consideration, and to meet the needs of our community, we have decided to reinstate the Lifetime and 6-month subscription promotional programs with no supply limit until […]

  • My World of Warcraft Scrapbook: Chapter 1

  • Cryptic sold out.

    I was not actually considering a lifetime subscription to champions, but the six month offer was tempting. Apparently Cryptic made the decision for me, since they forgot to tell anyone until last night that there was only a limited supply of the special offers. Asking people to commit to something before being able to take […]

  • Champions Online Open Beta Part 3

    Day 3 Again with Costumes I started day three of the open beta with an attempt at recreating another one of my City of Heroes characters. It was… interesting. I find in many ways the Champions Costume editor to offer a broader variety of piece types, while at the same time feeling as though it […]
