The Pieces of Flair Facebook app has truly invaded my family.

Rachel was going through hers and told me that her mother had sent her a piece of flair. Ok, cool. Then Rachel continues to say that the flair is an actual picture of her mom and that she called a bit after sending it to make sure that it was posted on Rachel's profile.

My mother, on the other hand, will never send me a piece of flair with her picture on it. I even tried providing a PC for them to do so. It got b0rked after two weeks of use and unnecessary file deletions. I haven't even powered it up to see what the true issues were, but there we are.

Also, the SkateIt game for Wii looks like something I'd like--though I feel badly for the half crab boy in the commercial.

It's going to be a love-hate relationship, eh?

I <3 you Spore.

For now.

So we have set up our Wii.

Anybody else out there want to Wii friend each other?

Hey, how's it going?

Setting this here as a reminder to myself, or I'll forget the game I was looking into earlier today.

Feel free, of course, to explore and discover Head Over Heels yourself. Or listen to the song by The Go-Go's--whichever is more convenient.

WoW vortex

servermonkey: (Zoloft)
Weak willed that I am, I have decided to try out WoW.

I resisted this MMORPG behemoth (I always imagine Steven Wright as the K-Billy DJ mispronouncing the word in Reservoir Dogs) for just over six years now, but after hearing my brother-in-law rave about it I chose to try it out.

It had been a while since I'd even fired up Guild Wars, and in my mind I thought it'd be so close that I'd be, "Eh, whatev."

But I wasn't.

The thing is, I can't even really explain the attraction for me. Additionally funny to me is how ashamed I am to admit that I am a WoW player now.

What a sucker I am!

I have given some thought to putting WoW cards on my wish list--since Rachel's family always wonders what I'd like to get as a gift.

Since I mentioned Reservoir Dogs, I found it interesting that TCM ran Au Revoir Les Enfants the other day. Tarantino once called that the Reservoir movie, didn't he? It's all connected in one way or another, it seems.

That I am, and have been told I am, I have begun an illicit relationship with Moutain Dew Game Fuel (which is, and I quote, "Dew with an invigorating blast of citrus cherry flavor").

Before tasting it, I imagined an odd combination of LimeWire and Code Red. Something about it has me addicted.

An empty bottle of it sits alluringly on my desk.

None of my entries are sponsored. Honest!

So, I've really been getting along with Guild Wars for a bit now. I've got three characters in varying stages of development, am part of a guild, and have been enjoying myself.

The only problem I had run into were the random BSOD and just plain lock ups. I resisted the typical Microsoft error reporting because I've typically gotten no joy from the "help" provided, if any was at all.

Anyway, after restraining myself from flinging the beloved laptop across the room and pulling an Office Space assault on it, I chose to submit the error report all the while thinking it would result in no help whatsoever. So, it returned a video driver problem and suggested updating it to the most current version. Ok, sure I thought to myself begrudgingly.

So I navigated over to Intel, updated it--which took an unusually long time since the d/l speed was between 10K and 21K per second which was odd.

After installing and rebooting, I fired up Guild Wars, and played the rest of the evening--with no lockups! Amazing what a little update will do. I'll have to see how it behaves tonight.

Wow, the number of CCG games that can be played using CCG Workshop's gatlingEngine is staggering.

I know I had at least a few Rage, Shadowfist, Vampire: The Eternal Struggle (née Jyhad), Alien vs. Predator, Dark Age (among a few other games) cards in my collection. I don't see Killer Bunnies or Munchkin, but one can't have it all.

Oh my gosh! There's Imajica AND the old I.C.E. Middle Earth game--the look of which I liked much more than Decipher's treatment when the LOTR movies were released.

So cool...and I missed out on adding something along these lines to my Geek Off 2007 list.

Oh yeah, I forgot the other upcoming change--not an earth shattering event, but I mention it nonetheless.

Only four more days until NS-13!
