Feel the love

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...

Crunch Time: No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 122
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 January 2013, 9:22 pm
Crunch time… Just about every industry has it and even we have ours.  It has been so busy the last few months I have had to call home and ask Fran if I am there - because I don’t know if I am coming or going.  It is starting to let up a bit, and finally...


How about them bears?
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 January 2013, 9:36 pm
  “How about them bears…” The phrase became a long running joke in my family.  It started with my grandfather many years ago.  Granddad had a hate-on for the Chicago Bears. I don’t know why, nobody seemed to know, and if Grandpa did he never told anyone.  Be that as it may he dearly loved...


Dead Bard Walking
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 December 2012, 8:56 pm
Alright. I admit it.  All of our regular listeners know.  I have autophobia – no, that doesn’t mean I am afraid of ’57 Chevy’s. It means I am afraid of being alone.  So I have had regular nightmares about it off an on since the event that caused it. These usually involve the loss of...

She said, She said
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 November 2012, 7:56 am
Webmaster:  We have had several regular features on our show over the years were listeners and guests got into heated discussions about issues.  Even when people live in the same household, or co-host the same show, they don’t always see eye to eye.  So its time to get serious with a bit of “she said,...

Soap Bubbles and Motorcycles
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 October 2012, 11:46 pm
I grew up in an era of .35 cents per gallon gasoline, 500 horsepower engines, and custom cars made by Big Daddy Don Gartlits.  I had a Cadillac Calais with a 473 cubic inch engine that was  so powerful it could drag a house a quarter mile (O.K. that last one might be a bit of...


From the Edge of Space
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 October 2012, 4:35 pm
The highest free fall ever. To the above is the amazing sight of a human being poised on the step of a capsule suspended from a balloon, ready to jump to the earth below from the edge of space.  There is little doubt the picture will become an Icon for the accomplishments of a single...

Passing up the Panda
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 September 2012, 6:44 am
There is nothing like that new mmo feel.  New vistas to explore, new adventures to be had.  I remember the first time I set foot in World of Warcraft (WoW).  What brought me there from the land that Lord British built (Ultima Online) were the gates of Ironforge. Back then the level cap was 60...


DREDD 3D: You have been judged – MEH
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2012, 10:40 pm
Over the weekend Fran and I went to see Karl Urban’s new movie “Dredd 3d”, a remake of the 1995 Sylvester Stalone movie “Judge Dredd”. When the movie went into production Karl Urban was quoted as saying we would like his version of Judge Dredd.  After watching the movie I can only assume his comment...

Charred but Not Burnt
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 September 2012, 7:47 pm
“We saw, early on, that when people came in and played the game like they played other MMOs, it was harder for them to enjoy the game or get into the game as fast. But once they broke down those barriers of ‘this isn’t that other game, this is something new’ then they started to...

Pandering Pandarens

In the wake of Guild Wars 2 Blizzard is about to launch another 5 levels and a new starting area.  While the Pandarens might be a novelty the question is,are they enough of a novelty to draw in new players? Will the pandering Pandarens bring back players who have moved on?. The first advertisement that...
