  • It looks like Iowa and not surprising, Utah are jumping on the bandwagon to ban the sales of violent games to minors. Game Politics has the story.

    Hogue's bill, HB 0257 is quite a bit different from most laws crafted to prevent kids from purchasing violent video games. Perhaps in response to the increasingly-heard "violent games as porn" drumbeat, Hogue's measure is designed to amend an existing Utah statute which makes distributing pornography and explicit nudity to minors a felony. Hogue's proposal adds "inappropriate violence" to the porn law.

    Welp there you go folks. We're being lumped together with porn.

    I'm going to go que up my "bomp chickee bom bomp" music and see you folks at the swingers club.

  • Gamer has a QNA with Turbine about the soon to be released title Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach.

    Don't you think that we're on the verge of entering another MMO games overflow? How many more games do you think that the market can sustain before it implodes?

    Not really. The only major subscription MMO released since the since the end of 2004 was City of Villains, and it's not even a fantasy game.

    I think some players will always feel that there's a game overflow, but that's just because they're good games out there these days. No one, not even the unemployed college student, can play them all. At the same time, no entertainment industry ever lost its way by providing good choices to the customer. As new games continue to grow the MMO marketplace, it will have room for more games, not fewer.

    And folks... You can also read it in Hebrew. It just doesn't get any better than this.

  • Mine with your mind!
    EVE Online has long been favored by truly casual players (for its offline training system friendly to those with little time to level) and truly hardcore gamers alike (hardcore gamers enjoy the game's intense PvP action). But if you play EVE and need some in-game money-- who doesn't?-- you need to mine some asteroids! Ten Ton Hammer's own "General" Lee usually takes a background role, whipping up the vast array of fine graphics you see on our network. But Darren comes to the forefront to share some of his EVE mining secrets!

    The objective of this series is to cover the mechanics of the fine art of mining in EVE. I'll touch upon some of the trials and tribulations that I've encountered going through the process as a Galantie character. I've taken a distributed approach to exploring the different aspects of the game. My expertise in mining is not complete but after a year of play, it's fair to say that I've learned a few tricks.

    All of the points made below are from the perspective of a solo miner. If you're a member of a thriving corporation that always travels in packs then most of the issues below will not apply. If you're like me and don't have time to support yet another demanding relationship in your life and simply want to fly around in space in your spare time then the info below might aid in the "fun" side of the experience.

    Check out Darren's mining guide here!

  • Did you know that today is Officially the WORST DAY OF THE YEAR? It's true. I watched it on Good Morning America this morning. They wouldn't lie to me.

    (On a side note, how weird is it that they've actually picked a day for this stuff?)

    Therefore pull yourselves together. Climb back into bed and then meet me back here tomorrow.

    *pat pat, nudge nudge* It will all be ok
