    MMO addiction, and games as a service

    Years ago, I made an important decision: to stop playing MMOs. They had a tendency to eat up all my free time, interfere with real-life obligations, and generally stopped being fun long before I stopped playing them. All well and good, and probably a story you've heard before. A couple months...

    A suggestion for mods acting as regular users

    I was going to wait for the whiteboard thread on this topic, but judging from the redtext, I don't think that's going to happen. So, I'm posting this before I forget. The problem: Some posters are feeling apprehensive about arguing with mods in normal threads, or at least keeping the mod status...

    Announcement: https://www.pathofexile.com/war Abyss Challenge League announcement: https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2032331 The changes this time are focused more on end-game mapping, and I think they're giving the team a bit of a break after releasing 3.0. Still, looks neat!

    Did Hulu just move to a HTML5 player?

    Cause I just opened it up in Firefox, and it worked, even though I don't have Flash installed in Firefox. Also, I checked the source, and that's definitely a video tag. So...that's new.

    So, is season 3 of the Venture Bros. just not very good?

    After watching the first 2 seasons of Venture Brothers a while back, I finally started on the 3rd. Honestly? I'm a bit meh on it so far. It seems like almost every joke falls flat, and there's a weird quality to it like the writing team got replaced with a new team that doesn't quite know what...

    Not enthusiastic about Diablo 3's new difficulty levels

    Background: Diablo 3 before the 2.0 patch had Normal, Nightmare, Hell, and Inferno difficulties. Each difficulty level had harder and higher-leveled monsters, in a way consistent with Diablo 2. Now, it has Normal, Hard, Expert, Master, and Torment. However, these map closer to the /players X...

    Dammit, Games For Windows Live

    I have never had a good experience with GFWL. This time is with Dark Souls. It apparently needs GFWL, or otherwise it can't save. I have an existing GFWL account, but I have forgotten the password. So I click on the "forgot password" link, foolishly expecting to be able to reset my password...
