  • BlizzCON was not what I expected. Erroneously I had anticipated a mob of pasty skinned, waddling behemoths stampeding the entry doors like living bowling pins. I forsaw multitudes of fanatics wheezing and gasping for air as they forced their oversized bodies to reach speeds that they had not experienced in years. I expected careening juggernauts mashing into one another in futile attempts to be first to the Blizzard store. All that and scooters. I expected lots of scooters.

  • I arrived at BlizzCON expecting huge lines of fanatics dressed in the Sunday best Murloc costumes. What did I get? Hundreds of normal people just hanging out and having a great time.

    Some pictures of the lineups, the Blizzard artwork and the goodies in the loot bag will follow. Right now, it's off to Day 1 of the event. If only I could remember where I put that Murloc suit.

  • The column yesterday attracted some excellent posts regarding microtransactions. Just to be clear to everyone...I'm not saying that MT is a bad thing. My question is whether or not it is the right model for North American and to some extent European gamers. It's the soup du jour in Asian markets so need to cite a case for it there.

    Thanks to David A and Brian "Psychochild" Green for their informative and thought provoking posts. You can read and contribute to the discussion here.

  • There are dozens of free MMOGs on the market. Most are built around micro-transactions, so in essence they aren't truly free if you wish to have the entire game experience. Nonetheless you can try them out, whittling away at them without dishing out your credit card.

  • Good News!

    It's Friday. The Simpson's movie enters theatres today. ComicCON coverage continues.

    Games, game events and game commentary should be entertaining. We are an entertainment industry. Where did the fun go? Where are the golden years when Phil Comeau would walk into the Nickelodeon booth at E3 and arms spread to the heavens start screaming out his Spongebob Squarepants impression at the top of his lungs?

    "Yesssssss!"

    "Yessssss!"

    "Wooooooooooooooooooo!"

    "Wooooooooooooooooooo!"

  • ComicCON is on!

    The lads were out looking for games that had the word "hammer" in them and lo and behold.... Warhammer Online appeared like a safe harbour in a storm.

    Garrett Fuller took some time to talk to an Orc and it wasn't even Jack Thompson. He hooked up with Murgash the Choppa to walk through a Warhammer Online quest. Question for those of you that are Warhammer fans from the tabletop days. If "red goes fasta!" then do the orcs weapons swing faster when they get bloodied?
