Trickythumbs’ Blag


A Quick Post

So the new year has dawned and things are off to a slow start, but I’m sure everything will kick into high gear before I realize it. I’m only a week or so away from being able to purchase my first iPhone (two year plan is about to expire) and thus my mind is currently focused around that new tiny world to explore with my pointer finger. Yes, I meant that to sound dirty and wrong.

As for gaming, the titles I’m drooling over right now are all surprisingly PC games. Champions Online, Dawn of War II, Dragon Age and Starcraft II. I’m hoping we get each of these before June, but that’s probably asking a bit too much. If anything, I’d be happy with waiting until the end of the year for Starcraft II, which would allow me to spend a lot more time with Dawn of War II for my strategy game needs.

Right now my time is being split between World of Warcraft, Persona 4 and City of Heroes. Although I’m also doing things like reading Anathem and World War Z, so, yeah … I’m too busy for my own good as usual. Oh, did I mention I’m trying to work on another D&D4E campaign as well? Although I’m half-tempted to wait until the middle of March, when the second Players Handbook comes out, so everyone involved can use the new classes and races.

Anyhow, that’s a small glimpse into my rather geeky life. I’m probably leaving out a lot of little things, which are very likely littered somewhere in my twitter feed! (@KyleHorner)



Warhammer Online to release on Sept 23rd?

Will WAR see a release by the end of September this year? Seems likely, especially given the fact that Mythic Entertainment and Electronic Arts want to be sure to beat Wrath of the Lich King out of the door as soon as they can without sacrificing too much quality — but a little content. I would still argue that overall game quality is both the quality of a game’s content and the quantity, especially with an MMO. You can have the most polished content you want, but there needs to be a certain amount of it to even matter. We’ll see, I haven’t disregarded Warhammer Online yet but I certainly doubt it’s ability to compete with the big boys. Especially with a KOTOR MMO on the way now from BioWare.
