League of Legends Shout-Out

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

Several people on the freely available game, League of Legends, have noticed that my username is actually a nudge to my website. So for all of you fellow champion-slayers out there, this is my hello! See you on the battlefield. Before you go – leave a note in the comments so I’ll know you were […]

Zork Returns

Friday, May 8th, 2009

Some of you may recall the classic text adventure game of Zork. It died out long ago – around the time of the BBS’ demise, though I played them for a bit afterward. Well now we can relive the golden years of “Internet” gaming. Legends of Zork have been reenvisioned by Jolt Online Gaming. […]

Reading Boy

Monday, January 21st, 2008

My son, at nearly 5 years of age, is big into the whole good vs. evil concept. He loves superheroes, Star Wars, and nearly every incarnation of fictional character one can imagine serving one of the aforementioned roles; good or evil. We played “superheroes” most of the day, Sunday. I was “The […]

Magic: The Gathering

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

It was in my junior year at high school (1993-1994) that I began playing the soon-to-be wildly popular card game, Magic: The Gathering. Over the next couple of years, I played the game…a lot. You win some you lose some. I didn’t have the money to be the best player, but I […]

Schlotzsky’s Has Internet, Disney Doesn’t Like Safari

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

It’s so much fun to be able to sit at the free computers in Schlotzsky’s Deli, surf the Internet, eat some food – all with the boy. He’s good with engaging himself with games on the Internet while I sit with him and peruse things. I’m an awful parent for this I’m sure, […]

The Modern Family

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

Just now, I was trapped into playing Ka-Glom on my BlackBerry and had to do so for a couple of games before I could put it down and attend to the evening duties. I walked into the living room where my lovely wife was laying on the couch playing Tetris on her cell phone. […]

Kingdom of Loathing

Tuesday, July 11th, 2006

I’ve not written about it before, but the Kingdom of Loathing (KoL) is the best piece of crap since Legend of the Red Dragon (LoRD) way back in BBS days. KoL is chocked full of PHP and MySQL goodness to bring forth one of the more entertaining web games out there. Your a […]

Revisiting D&D

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

Saturday ended at 3:30am Sunday morning. I played D&D for the first time since the 80’s with a group of friends. They’re old pro’s, but I have some catching up to do. We played all day and night, so that’s a good way to get a refresher course. We didn’t actually […]

d20

Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

D&D is back in my life. When last played, it was referred to as AD&D, which is now quite archaic. I played Dungeons & Dragons through Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, but hung it up when my brother did. That was 20 or more years ago and I’m just revisiting a fond childhood […]
