Todays FFIV newsletter spam made me laugh. I played FF14 for about 2 hours after it was hot off the press. In its state, I cannot see how anyone can turn the game around to make it any better. Basic gameplay mechanics are wrong as well as the lack of a tutorial of any sort. Which ends up with you killing one rabbit, then make a shot at another and die… for hours. Screw that. I understand that FF14 “just came out” and it does not have the development time [Continue Reading]

I may put forth the effort in making a review, but it is doubtful that I will waste any more time then I already have on this game.
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Release Date Set at December 7, 2010, according to the Official Press Release. Looks like I will have to take a week vacation, starting at midnight that morning. 🙂
An interesting discussion on the Starcraft forums regarding AT (Arranged Teams) vs RT (Random Teams) is brewing. It seems that Blizzard does not acknowledge the fact that AT VS RT is just plain wrong. Arranged Teams have a set stratagy out of the gate to defeat their opposition while RT’s have to figure it out on the fly.
