Dollar Keeper
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 February 2014, 5:08 pm
Way back in 1997 a company named Bullfrog productions created a game called “Dungeon Keeper” .  It was published by Electronic arts back when games were written for DOS, the word “Playstation” didn’t have any numbers after it and Xbox was but a dream. To some the game was, and is still, considered a classic....


Giant on the horizon
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 January 2014, 6:59 am
There something big on the horizon. The sound of footsteps crashing through the global village is coming from Star Citzen, by Chris Roberts. Those of us who have been gaming since the PC-DOS days remember him from his days at Origin Systems where he brought us Wing Commander – the game he characterized as “World...


Candy Crushed
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2014, 7:37 am
The makers of the game Candy Crush have managed to trademark the word “Candy” and reports on ABC News in  Chicago are that they are asking other developers to remove the word “Candy” from their games. Rumors abound this morning that Blizzard, creators of the wildly popular game “World of Warcraft” have managed to trademark...


Greedy Birds Go!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2014, 8:09 pm
The first time I saw an angry bird he was an African Grey and nobody wanted him.  I took him home and gave him a home and lots of love – angry bird that he was. The second time I saw an angry bird it looked like the one above.  A friend of mine was...

Play our game or the toon gets it!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 October 2013, 8:00 am
It isn’t the first time we have received an email like this – Funcom tried it to – basically it was an email from EA saying play our game or we will kill your characters. In all captial font it said “IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR SWTOR ACCOUNT”.  Usually this sort of font is saved for...


Minecraft and Politics
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 October 2013, 1:24 pm
Only in the United States would a body of politicians argue about budget cuts and waste 24 BILLION dollars doing so – that’s a whopping big hunk out of the economy even if the estimates by Standard and Poors are only half right. Only in the United States would congressmen argue about politics to within...


Dear House GOP
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 October 2013, 9:32 am
Dear House GOP, I have been playing alot of Minecraft these last two weeks and I wanted to thank you for the time to do so – after all it’s a great game isn’t it?  But while I am having fun in my cubists dream I thought I would drop you a note because I...


Cubist Sunrise
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 September 2013, 6:12 pm
So for me minecraft was always one of those games that was on the periphery of my games radar. It was something on the outskirts like Farmville (somewhere in the cybersphere my farm is full of rotting crops and overrun with wild animals). It was something that I saw in blogs occassionally when someone had...


Flash in the Pan
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 August 2013, 7:27 am
  It was like driving through a little down – I blinked and missed it. In this case it wasn’t a small town with two bars, a gas station and a church (like the one my granddad was from). No, in this case it was Neverwinter Online (NOW). It wasn’t that long ago that we sat...


Jacking in – Staying Connected
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 August 2013, 1:03 pm
For the last year or so I tried unplugging myself.  When I realized my Facebook account allowed me to keep in touch with 500 of my closest friends I have never met I closed it down.  At home we told the cable company to pull out the television cable (obviously we kept the high speed...

How I met my mother
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 July 2013, 1:01 pm
I met my mother because of Star Trek Like me you may have let all aspects of Star Trek simmer on the back burner (if not off the stove altogether).  Many is the time I have heard myself utter the words “steampunk is the new Klingon.”  No, this isn’t about the tabloid headlines “woman gives...

DEAR NSA
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 June 2013, 7:28 am
(An actual letter I sent to Fran) I know you fine folks at the National Security Agency are listening out there at the other end of the PRISM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_(surveillance_program) program so I thought I would send you a letter.  Not directly.  I figured the best way to send it to you was to let you have...


Bad Man with a bullet
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 June 2013, 1:26 am
Bad man with a bullet… It’s the name of a quest in Defiance.  But for all practical purposes it may as well be the name on a sign that says “exit game here.”  I’ve never figured out why game developers do it – and not all of them do to be sure.  Every now and...


The Burger Glutton 3000
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 May 2013, 10:40 pm
When I first saw this I thought it must be April 1st!  This has to go down in history as one of the dumbest inventions ever to come out of any corporate office.  I can only assume that it was an attempt to try and get Americans to appear more ridiculous in the world’s eyes...

Never sleep with your sister
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 May 2013, 8:26 pm
Never Sleep With Your Sister….and other lessons I have learned. The first lesson at hand is one I learned recently – never sleep with your sister – nothing good will come of it.   Just as nothing good will come of trying to help a sibling (me) who feels so claustrophobic that she feels trapped in...


This Place is a Hole
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 April 2013, 6:07 pm
It was not a nasty dirty wet hole filled with ends of worms and a bad smell.  Nor was it a dry, bare sandy hole with nothing in it.   It was a wormhole and that meant danger. livin la vida…agujero de gusano Even though it is most often thought of in Eve Online as “living...

Feel the love
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 April 2013, 6:43 am
When I left CCP had just laid off 20% of their staff world-wide. Their relationship with players had become as strained as Boy George opening for an Anita Bryant concert – and the corporation I once belonged to decided the solution to a year-long war dec was simply “waiting it out” (it didn’t work). I...


Asteroid Dance
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 April 2013, 7:02 am
(With apologies to Van Morrison)   It’s a marvelous nights for some mining, With the stars all around in my eyes A fabulous night to mine asteroids ‘Neath the cover of Caldari Skies All the ore in the hold that is falling  And the coffee that’s sipped sweet and slow And Saturday night is still...

Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 March 2013, 9:30 pm
There is an old adage that says you never know what you have until it’s gone.  But sometimes a product is so good, so incredibly useful, that you DO know what you have before it’s gone.  We have been using gmail since there was a gmail in 2004.  Before that we paid for an email...
