Magic Piano for iPad

On May 21, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Nat

I must say that the Magic Piano app is probably one of  the coolest little apps on the market right now. The game is simple, yet one often finds oneself unable to stop playing it. You choose from a rather large song selection (my favorite being Clair de Lune).  Once the game begins, small, lighted […]

Darkfall, First Impressions

On May 14, 2010, in General, by gamergirl

So after much discussion about UO and its various mechanics at our residence and our attempts to find something with the same flavor in another online game I decided to give Darkfall a try.  After all it is purported to resemble UO more than any other modern MMO.  Everything in this game is PVP centric […]

G15 Keyboards

On May 14, 2010, in General, by Nat

Last night after the complete pwnage we received in UO last night, I realized I needed to set up my macros/hotkeys. I’m running the enhanced client in UO right now, mainly for the better resolution options on my widescreen monitor, but also because of the little hotbars this version gives. So, I’m clicking away trying to […]

UO: Nat’s Thoughts

On May 10, 2010, in Ultima Online, by Nat

As I mentioned before, we downloaded the free, 14 day trial for Ultima Online this weekend. Folks, let me just say a few things before I get started actually talking about the game play and stuff… I know it sounds stupid. I know it sounds dumb, but as I walked into Brit and heard the music…my […]

Ultima Online? Whaaaaaa?

On May 8, 2010, in General, by Nat

It’s 12:18 am and here I sit at my computer, downloading the free 14 day trial of Ultima Online’s newest expansion. The lamest part of this is I cannot access my now 10 year old account. When I turned it off years ago, I had my jspot email address, yet we sold that domain off […]

World of Warcraft: Cataclysm

On May 7, 2010, in General, World of Warcraft, by Nat

I spent a lot of time today reading about the changes in the upcoming Cataclysm expac and came to the following conclusion: I’m not sure it’s enough for me. Although I am pleased it will only be 5 new levels to grind out, and I’m glad they are FINALLY doing SOMETHING with Kalimdor (Flying mounts […]

What’s up, kids?

On May 7, 2010, in General, by Rotsam

Short post for now, but you’ll enjoy it anyway.  I’m dicking around in Fallen Earth — it’s sort of like a low-budget Tabula Rasa.  I like the FPS aspect and the quest system is pretty straight-forward, but overall TR was visually richer and the gameplay was smoother.  I think there’s definitely room for a sci-fi […]

If I could create an MMO…

On May 6, 2010, in General, by Nat

When the BiC’ers and I are sitting down chatting, a large portion of our time is spent fussing about whatever MMO we are playing, and daydreaming about what we ‘wish’ the game included. I’ve decided that the best possible scenario on earth would be for ME to design my own MMO. No one would ever […]

Dragon Age- Awakening and why it’s fail

On May 5, 2010, in RPG, by Nat

As everyone knows, I have a complete love for Dragon Age: Origins. This game was well thought out, feature rich, included awesome graphics, gorgeous cut scenes and in-depth character interactions that made you LOVE the characters in the game or HATE them. I’ve played DA:O time and time again, and just never, ever get sick […]
