Free Realms

Everyone else is talking about this new game from SOE so I figured I might as well too. I started playing today and it was easy to jump into. I didn’t have to create an account since I already have a station account, and it only downloads the parts you need as you need them […]

360 Elite Starting to Bitch Out

Well damnit, this isn’t much fun. The other night while playing Wheelman my xbox froze up. I shut it off and turned it back on, fearing I’d see the red ring of death. But nope, it started up and all seemed normal until I tried to load up the game and it froze again then […]

Goodbye WoW, again, for now

Yesterday my time card expired and I didn’t even miss it, so I guess it’s time to take another break. I’ll miss my lil dwarves and gnomes though, with their bald shiny heads and funky hairdos; keep those hair loss treatments away from my toons while I’m gone! Summer is coming and business will get […]
