The Kids These Days with Their Fast-Paced MMOs

Tags mmorpg

Like many of you who will read this, I enjoy MMORPGs. I've been playing them off and on (mostly on) since the late 90's. I started with Asheron's Call, took a detour through Everquest, City of Heroes, Star Wars Galaxies, and I have found a comfortable existence in Lord of the Rings Online, and World of Warcraft, with the odd attempt now and then to give myself a seizure in Perfect World. While some of you may count this a thin resume, I feel that it gives me a certain pedigree in the world of...

Computers and Children

Posted 17th November 2010 at 10:28 AM by Rage

I remember when I was younger, watching a 2year old get on her dad's computer, start it up, go into windows, load the game she was after and start playing. I was pretty impressed with her computer skills at such a young age and I always thought that I'd like my children to be very computer literate. Both of my children have shown very little interest in the computer until recently and now, they can pilot it even in ways I've never shown them. They just learn things so quickly. But how young is too...

Talera vs The Children

Posted 16th November 2010 at 01:52 PM by Talera

To me this is what makes things such as the Angels in Dr Who and evil children in movies so disturbing to us. We may not be scared, but it makes us feel uncomfortable and ill at ease to watch.

So I went to watch ‘The Children’ on the weekend. It is a new (I say because it not long...

Talera vs Option C

Posted 13th November 2010 at 04:49 PM by Talera

So I have been quiet this week. There has been a reason, I have been dealing with Option C.

I haven't been of full health lately. I went to the Doctor and as per usual they have to do tests to be sure of what it is. It could be Option A which just means I have to do either short term or long term medication, but other than that things will be fine.

Why Hand Held Games Make Me Feel Old

Posted 13th November 2010 at 05:38 AM by daranthered (Hello! I am Error.)

About two weeks back, I was going to meet some friends to see a movie. I, and another friend, arrived early, and as so often happens these days, out came the iPhone.

We played Battleship on my friend's iPhone. I mention this to illustrate two points; the first is that I rock at Battleship, I won four games to zip, and secondly, to show just how far portable gaming has come in my lifetime.

I still have my original Gameboy, and as of last night when I resurrected it with...
