  • Tomorrow is July 7, 2007 or 7/7/7. Lucky or simply a house 200 feet down and across the road from 666?

    There is so much good news out there that I don't know where to begin. For instance, Jack Thompson, the lunatic lawyer who attacks anything to do with video games has been ordered by the Florida Bar Association to undergo psychological testing.

  • Part-time rodeo clown, part-time superhero, Jeff "Ethec" Woleslagle was invited to visit the new digs of Cryptic Studios. While he was there he used his superpowers to lasso Jack Emmert and John Layman. Here is but a small snippet of the interview, conducted from one of those huge rodeo barrels painted like a target. As always, we asked a toilet related question.

  • Thank you to the Americans who have taken time out of their 4th of July celebrations to read the column today. Cody Bye, our resident expert on celebrations even took time out to write a blog.

  • As an MMO game player I am used to settling into my comfortable chair, plunking a frosty cold beverage down on the desk, logging into my game of choice, currently World of Warcraft, and checking the auction house, my mail, checking if my friends are online, etc. It's a habit that I enjoy, probably much like Paris Hilton enjoys attention. I can't get enough of it. I login to see if I won the auctions that I bid on. I login to see if my auctions have sold. I login early and often, many time for only a few seconds just to check out some inconsequential piece of information.

  • Europeans are no strangers to terrorist acts. Cowards have been creating anarchy in the name of personal gain for centuries across the old world. Americans received a deadly dose of the same plague when their embassies, ships and symbols of their economic success were attacked, the most notable being the cowardly attack on 9/11.

    I never thought that living in a tiny town in Eastern Ontario Canada that I would get a first-hand look at terrorism. I was wrong.

  • Hooboy, our Gods and Heroes community manager, Todd Davis has come up with the article title to top all article titles. I like to think that my Loading... titles are on occasion quite witty, but they are a mere shadow of wit next to Todd's simple yet elegant, "Gods and Heroes: The Right to Arm Bears". Gold.

  • WoWHead the database of choice for many World of Warcraft players has been purchased by the folks who own Allakhazam, Thottbot, OGaming....you get the picture.

    Though they claim that they are no longer in the Gold Farming business I personally find it very hard to believe. There is no public information proving that Affinity Media sold IGE. There is no public information proving that if they did sell it that they sold it outside of their own umbrella of companies.

  • Once in a while I get to announce something really cool. Today I suppose could be considered "twice" in a while.

    Most of you know that we do not accept advertising or sponsorship money from Gold Farming or Botting companies. Does it hurt our ability to keep the company going? Sure it does. Gold Farmers pay well. There is a reason that our industry is infested with them.

  • I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that as a person who frequents this column you are likely expecting some bizarre combination of facts and humour. You want to be informed and entertained, educated and engaged. That's a tough gig no matter how you look at it.
