Welcome to the 46th Edition of Reloading...

“It always rains on tents.  Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.” – Dave Barry


Everyone can use a feel good moment to start the day.   Let’s go with this…


Thanks to everyone who sent me some answers to the prying questions regarding SWTOR preorders that I posed in my last column.

I’ll be back in my normal surroundings tomorrow, so another short, sweet and not so neat version of Reloading… today.  

Here are some links to entertain you while I’m MIA.

Also, take a gander at one of my favourite posts of all time.  There are some spectacular quotes, some now a bit out of date from many of the greatest minds in online gaming.    Perhaps my personal favourite is,

“Attention is the currency of the future.” – Dr. Cat’s Theorem

Take some time to enjoy playing a game today.  It will do you good.


As always, you can contact me a number of ways:

  • Email
  • Twitter
  • Website
  • Telepathy (Just make sure it’s during business hours.  I hate to be woken by this stuff)

Until we meet again,

John “Boomjack” Hoskin

MMOG Burnout - Design Problem?

What's the answer to MMOG burnout? Anacche has been pondering the problem and has come to the conclusion that if you can't change the player then you have to change the game at a fundamental design level.

Is the carrot-on-a-stick model most MMOGs use to keep players parked at their keyboards past its prime? What needs to change in order to keep players connected with their game of choice longer? This thread has sparked some interesting conversation. Add to it!
