Loading... your daily MMOG laxative.
In what appears to be some sort of cosmic consciousness, or maybe because Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby was on television recently, I received three e-mails yesterday asking why Loading... didn't have a sponsor. I picture it ending up something like this.
Should I auction this space off on EBay? Your message could go here for a low as $1.00. Red Bull, this is your chance to get back in my good books. My TenTonHammer soccer jerseys would also look good with a big sponsored by NVidia patch. Gold farmers, don't even think of it. I'll donate your sponsorship money to charity and point your link here.
Who else should bid on this colossal sponsorship opportunity? I've asked the agents for Kirstie Alley, Rosie O'Donnell and Vin Diesel, but none took up the torch. Tom Cruise's agent sent me a Scientology coffee table book, but I had to throw it out because it was wired. Tom on the other hand is still here. I just keep saying, "Didn't I make myself clear?" He keeps saying, "No" and jumping around on my couch.
Whether you sponsor me or not, I consider you all winners, but Karen says that some of you are bigger winners than others. Take it up with her in the forums. (NOTE: if you prefer RTS or FPS games to MMOGs, I consider you a whiner, not a winner.) Here are our latest contest winners. Congratulations!
"We challenged our forum community to rewrite the lyrics to popular holiday songs, making them about their favorite MMOGs. A number of creative folks rose to the challenge! The Ten Ton Hammer staff nominated their favorite entry from each forum, and a random drawing determined our three winners. Our first place winner receives a 6 month subscription to her favorite game, while our two runners up receive 3 months. Without further ado, here are the winners:
Check out all the entries in our individual community forums:"
If MMOG are a religious experience are those songs now considered Psalms? MMOPs perhaps?
Jeff and Cody are in the land that modesty forgot covering the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). When they can drag themselves away from the craps tables, booze and epic sized buffets they are attending the largest gadget show outside of Tokyo. Some of their handiwork is linked below in the New MMOG Articles section. The Pirates of the Burning Sea ditty was especially informative.
I still don't grasp why many of you are so passionate about The Agency, but I'll do some research (Yeah right, just post you opinion in the forums. I'm not looking anything up.) Then again, when you are a James Bond type in real life, who needs to play a game about it?
