  • Blog Post: Tempted by Halo

    I'm tempted to blow off work for the rest of the week and spend the time playing Halo 2. It's that compelling. I don't know why I want to do it. Is it just because everyone else is doing it? I don't even own an XBox. Now that's a startling revelation. You'd think I'd have one by now. After all I can...
  • Blog Post: Halo, can you hear me now?

    I played my first game of Halo last night. Not Halo 2 mind you, the developers only just finished that up recently and while I might technically be an 'insider' I haven't had access to any pre release versions of that one. I'm talking about the bona-fide original product. I opened up the box sometime...
  • Blog Post: Gaming Discourse

    I went to lunch with my brother today. This is a somewhat common occurrence. We are both soldiers for the Empire. We usually talk about programming or family business, but often we get deep into discourse over his recent gaming/macro-ing exploits. I have often wondered what it might sound like to the...

    There’s been a lot of hype lately over this new fangled paradigm known as Aspect Oriented Programming. You might have heard it mentioned on another blog or in some technical article on the fringe of the mediaverse. You probably scratched your head and skimmed over the article, not certain what...

  • Blog Post: Getting in the Game

    What is it with games? I think there are only maybe five actual games on the market, every other one is just basically the same one redone with new graphics, a slight variation of data. I’ve been a game consumer for a long time, and have at times dabbled in game design, though I’m no professional...
  • Blog Post: Cheat Codes

    Betsy and I were playing Neverwinter again a few nights ago. We were having trouble with some metal behemoths. It seems our tactics and weapons were having no effect. We would have had a better weapon, but it was accidentally sold at the last merchant and we could not afford to get it back. The game...
  • Blog Post: Reality Check

    No Stargate tonight. They were all repeats of ones we had seen so Betsy and I played a hour of Neverwinter Nights instead. If you can't watch soldiers beating up on aliens on TV, the next best thing is to beat up on goblins yourself. We play cooperatively. A friend of mine offered advice about playing...
