Rick Rolled!

For about a whole week last week, I kept waking up with Rick Astley’s song “Never Gonna Give You Up” stuck in my head. The reason? I kept getting “rick-rolled”! If you’ve never been rick rolled before, here’s how it works. Pranksters will send you an innocent looking linky that turns out to be… a You Tube video of Rick Astley!

So anyway, having been rick-rolled a few times, I swore to myself never to click on another You Tube link again, no matter how innocent-looking, especially if its sender has a dubious reputation. Thankfully, my strategy seemed to work and I had almost forgotten Rick when someone sent me this pie-chart link!

So what does this have to do with games and gaming? Nothing really, except perhaps that I’ve been getting most of the rick-rolling from the PotBS forums and IRC channel.

Speaking of which, I have quit as site manager of PotBS Vault but I’m still very much into the game. Since none of my gaming buddies are playing it with me, I’ve joined a pirate society on the Rackham server and I’m trying to set up my character with a ship provisioning business. It’s the first time I’m playing a pirate since closed beta and I’m really having fun with it. I find it refreshing that I don’t have to worry about saving money or trying to get a shipbuilding operation going. Need ship? Capture one! It suits my playing style and I don’t know why I never thought of doing it before. Granted I am still a lowbie so I can’t relate to the “pirates have no end game” complaints I see everyday but at the rate I’m going, I’m not going to have that problem for a long time anyway.

For all ye land lubbers, here’s an awesome PotBS ship battle video so you’ll see what you’re missing. :)
