Apr 23rd 2011 6:25PM Interacting with your community isn't a bad thing. What's bad is interacting with them by proposing hackneyed, money-grubbing ideas that you should have known that they would hate.

Sep 2nd 2010 9:53PM So are we just ignoring that joke of an article that Sera wrote two weeks ago?
Aug 19th 2010 6:28AM Better than a circle under everything (in my opinion).

Aug 10th 2010 9:25PM Would winning a free beanie be worth typing out a howl over the Internet?

Jun 1st 2010 5:33PM The Old Republic challenging traditional conventions? Are you kidding me? Maybe if the game wasn't shaping up to be another themepark with a loot treadmill at the end I could buy their spin, but all I've seen from this game so far is World of Warcraft with an attached BioWare-style story (which I'm still not sure will work in an MMO setting).
It's nice to claim that you're being innovative, and it certainly helps to build the hype (thanks to sites like Massively), but you have to back it up with some specifics. They're adding a little bit of spice to the MMO scene, but they definitely aren't doing anything to the traditional MMO conventions.
May 21st 2010 5:56PM The Waiting Man
The man waits. Around him sounds a guttural hum like some soon to be wakened beast of unknown origin. The ship idles in space and below it rests the planet, the sixth in some rundown system somewhere in Minmatar space and the man the proud owner of all the riches therein. Barren and lifeless with dark oceans and rock rippled by billions of years of seismic activity, taciturn cracks in the surface hundreds of miles wide, themselves visible from space.
In his appreciation of the scope of geologic time the man feels his own life vindicated by his accomplishment, as if in laying claim to this floating rock he had made a stand against human mortality. Production would begin at his word. He would savor this moment.
It is a testament to the power of idea that human beings can now control the nature of worlds. The universe no longer belongs to a god or to nature but to man. His will supreme and his power untenable. Humanity! These thoughts and others occur to the waiting man. He sighs and allows a small smile to cross his face. He speaks.
