Mage Knight - It’s Getting Bad
by Scorpia

Well, things have taken a big turn for the worse here, though not immediately. Apparently the big fight with those mortar Dwarfs was a special encounter. They weren’t around when I reloaded. A few others were there, but only 3 or 4 total. So we killed them and went back to town, unloaded stuff, and returned.

Mage Knight - Inching On
by Scorpia

Well, I was a bit hasty yesterday. Turns out TQ isn’t as clean as I thought. Went back into it after posting about MK yesterday, and saw that smears still occur, though not so badly as before. At least there aren’t any on the character. So the new drivers helped there somewhat, but they haven’t done a lot for MK.

Mage Knight - Into The Game
by Scorpia

Well, after spending much of the afternoon into the early evening getting the driver update (it took three attempts), I finally upgraded the card. Funny thing, on rebooting the system, Titan Quest came up for some reason. But that was okay, because I wanted to see how it looked, and it was fine. “Look Ma, no smears!”. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about Mage Knight.

Mage Knight: Apocalypse - First Look
by Scorpia

Surprised? Me, too. I caught a squib on Blues News earlier this week that Mage Knight: Apocalypse was shipping. The title was new to me, so I poked around the ‘net for information. This morning I picked it up at a local store.

by Scorpia

Somewhere, recently - either in a comment here or someplace online, I don’t recall which - I saw mention of games being too long, that people don’t have the time for lengthy adventures.

Experiment: Open Comments
by Scorpia

For the time being, the requirement to be logged in to leave comments is off. I’ve been a little disheartened by the lack of posts, and it’s possible more would be left if registration wasn’t necessary.

You will have to enter name (or nickname) and email for each post made. However, those who are registered and logged in won’t need to do that.

Moderation is on for certain words and also excessive links (this to prevent spamming). Otherwise, posting is open. We do reserve the right to remove any post we think is inapproriate for this site.

I’ll keep this open for awhile and see how things go. If it works, the change may be permanent if no problems arise.

Women And Gaming III - My Take
by Scorpia

In Women And Gaming, we looked at the industry’s desire to interest more women in computer games. In Women And Gaming II, we saw the other side, women who work in the industry or play in competitive games. Now it’s my turn to say a few words.

Weekend Puzzle - Solution
by Scorpia

Okay, it’s time for the answers. As usual, should you or any of your…ahem…as usual, I’ve replaced the random letters with dashes so the titles stand out.
