  • Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (PC)

    I think reviewing an MMO, especially in its infancy, is practically impossible. So bear with me and be well aware that I have experienced very little of the overall Warhammer experience. That being sa

  • EVE Online (PC)

    I think a lot of gamers will not have the patience to bother with this snoozefest.

  • Cheat Codes for Life

    Last month, I asked you send me letters that listed your favorite PC games, to give people who aren't experienced in that sub genre of gaming some ideas as to where to get started. What follows is my first edition of Cheat Codes that does not contain a single made-up letter. Enjoy.

  • … of the Month: n00b

    Firstly, I should say that I am enrolled in the school of thought where I am right and you are wrong if you don't happen to agree with me. With that out of the way, I'll give you all the real definition of the term n00b. While the origin of this word is easy enough to figure out, coming from the word newbie, meaning someone who is new to something, in this case videogames, more specifically MMORPGs, where I mainly see it used,,,,,,,,,,;;; the meaning has changed. Now, it can be used to refer to anyone who does stupid and/or annoying things that suggest that they don't know a damned thing about the game they are playing. It doesn't matter how long a person plays a game, if they still do stupid, annoying things that show their complete lack of understanding of some aspect of a game, they are a n00b. This allows for people with a good head on their shoulders and a decent experience level with MMORPGs to jump into one, play for a few hours, and not be considered a n00b.
