Welcome to the 19th edition of Reloading…"What’s right is what’s left if you do everything else wrong.” – Robin Williams
Everyone can use a feel good moment to start the day. Let’s go with this…
Did you know that the gentleman responsible for Flickr.com
was originally building a MMOG? It was simply too costly at that time to build the MMOG, but fortunately for us we ended up with one of the best photo sharing sites on the Internet. Even more fortunately for us, the man behind Flickr is now once again, building a MMOG.
Unfortunately, it isn’t a MMOG as I tend to define one, but rather a Facebook game somethingorother MMO-hybridasaur zombie gankfestamobile. I don’t really know what it is and I’m not Paul Harvey, so you’re not going to get “the rest of the story.” Google is your friend.
I read today
that Bioware believes that Star Wars: The Old Republic will “more than” compete with World of Warcraft. I wasn’t aware that “more than” competing was even an option. Reporter
: Can you compete with the Pittsburgh Steelers?PR type
: We can “more than” compete with the Steelers!
It just doesn’t make sense. I suggest Bioware stop using Yoda as their spokesperson. Suggest I do!
Last, but not least in this shortened version or Reloading… TomsHardware.com
is reporting that a StarCraft 2 MMOG is “likely”. In other news, the sun is likely to rise tomorrow, water is likely to be wet and bees maybe, just maybe, will still make honey.

on something from the column today or just in general. Heaven knows I didn’t have time to put in anything interesting!
