12:31 pm - old games
other than ebay, how do you go about trying to find old games if you get the urge?

for instance, ff7 is obviously very rare and hard to find. and for some reason, even though i never played it when it came out, for some reason i find myself occassionally looking for a copy of parappa the rapper.. not looking hard enough to actually do anything crazy like going to a store, but glancing through craigslist, etc..

I have had the music from the Hong Kong level of Twisted Metal 2 going around and around in my head.

Any tunes from older games get stuck in your head recently?

Hi all. I've been on a bit of a "tour of the MMOs" over the last few months, basically because I was looking for an alternative to WoW (which i've played to death). Below are a few quick summaries of my experiences, in case anyone else is also looking for an alternative. Just fyi though, i'm mainly a PvE player and am not a bottle pisser (i.e I'm a casual player) and obviously i haven't invested VAST quantities of time in playing all of these to endgame. I've also tried to be as even as possible in naming the good points/bad points. I don't claim to be a journalist of any sorts, these are just observations.

One overbearing observation from this little tour though is the following:

* Anyone who doesn't play WoW tends to be quite vocal on how much they hate it
* Anyone who plays WoW tends to be quite vocal on how shit everything else is

Which is pretty pathetic, but there you go! Anyway, hope you find this useful. Any further discussions / comments would be ace, any flaming / brand loyalty will be ignored by everybody :D

Stuck in a room, with Guitar Hero, listening to a very distant young relative play "Surrender" by Cheap trick over and over and over and over, on easy mode, for six hours solid.

Has anyone else suffered any gaming related psychological scarring this christmas?

02:31 pm - Tabula Rasa Update -- Military Surplus Goes Live
Yesterday Tabula Rasa was patched. The biggest changes were Military Surplus finally going live and adjustments to Rage which resulted in everyone getting a free respec for skill points (attribute points will get a respec in the next patch). Also new purchasable consumables such as temporary wormholes and power, armor, and adrenaline boasters were added. And a new level 50 zone named Fault Lever was added as well as more than 15 new missions in Palisades. You can read the patch notes at http://www.rgtr.com/news/patch_notes/patch_notes_and_known_issues_1211.html

Military Surplus is essentially an auction house. It was pretty active yesterday and I was able to find and purchase some good schematics and gear at reasonable prices. I also put about 40 items up for sale and about one third of them sold before I logged out. Rage's damage bonus was nerfed, but you can now keep it up for one minute at a time and its a fast cast and gives you and your squad 10% damage reduction at pump 5. That more than makes up for the nerf in my mind. Also green, blue, and purple items mean more now as higher quality items do more damage or give you more armor. Biotech's also got some major changes and I can't wait to log onto mine and play around with them. I'm very impressed with the content and changes in this patch. Hopefully the Devs will be able to keep up the good work.

P.S. If you want to get a better idea of what its like to play Tabula Rasa, check out my earlier blog entries as I kept a daily gaming journal during November.

11:01 pm - 3 Day Trial Access to Tabula Rasa as part of the "Refer a Friend" program
You can now try Tabula Rasa free for three days as part of their new "Refer a Friend" program. It works this way: Me or some other current Tabula Rasa player accesses our NCSoft account and types in the email address of the person they want to get the 3 day trial access. NCSoft then sends an activation code to that email address and it must be used within 2 months. Once you activate your code, you can download the Tabula Rasa client and play for free for 3 days. That should be enough time to do everything in the start zone of the game (Wilderness) and perhaps get a taste of the next zone (Divide). When I downloaded the client back in September with my slow DSL it took about 4 or 5 hours. Patching should take less than 15 minutes. You can read the full details at:


If you want to take advantage of this offer, I would be happy to get a code sent to you. Just email me at trinfan1@yahoo.com (or maybe send a personal message via Livejournal). If you like the game and decide to buy it, then I get a free month of play time :)

In other Tabula Rasa news, I got an email from NcSoft today that contained blurbs from several reviews by gaming websites. The email also had 7 blurbs from Gamespot customer reviews. My TR review was not quoted, but 35 out 39 Gamespot members have agreed with what I wrote. You can read my review at:
