So I’ve played a little World of Warcraft, but not much. I decided to start a new character and make notes of the experience of bringing a character up from level 1 as a relative newb. I just came off my trial account and have a couple characters under level 12. I haven’t made a […]

I added the feed from Heroine Content to my collection recently. This is from the site’s first post and welcome: Heroine Content is a feminist and anti-racist blog about women kicking ass. More specifically, we write about women kicking ass in action films, with a side order of television and video game commentary as things […]

You might be playing too much World of Warcraft when: you see a listing on the Freecycle website for a green leather bag and you wonder how many slots it has.

I took lots of pictures at E3 this year and they are now all posted. Browse the whole swarm of E3 pictures here. Nintendo‘s there, Sony’s there, even the Prince of Katamari. Hello Prince! How much fun it would be to make a Katamari of E3 attendees…

It’s been a crazy couple of days. See why in the 16punches galleries here. I’m super swagged and super excited to play some of these games when they are released later this year. The big deal of the show was definitely Nintendo’s Wii. The line to get in to the Wii area looped around for […]

Today’s the day. In 15 minutes the doors to E3 2006 will open and geeks galore will rush in to see the latest releases from their favourite game companies. My first stop is Blizzard to see what’s new with World of Warcraft. I’ll also be on the lookout for boothbabes as a follow up to […]

Less than 56 hours until the E3 show floor opens its doors to the likes of me. One of the cool things to be checking out this year is Nintendo’s Wii (pronounced “we”), their next generation gaming console. There’s no big competition for them this year in terms of home consoles since Microsoft’s Xbox 360 […]

22 I met my first Tamagotchi last winter when my daughter received one as a gift. Days of feeding, playing, sleeping, and cleaning the poop of this the small, portable, electronic toy ensued. She takes care of all its needs by pushing the little buttons just below the screen. With good care it eventually it […]

Rob acquired a 14-day free trial dvd for World of Warcraft. Since we’re getting hyped up for E3 and our trip to California (next week!) we thought it would be the perfect time to get in the spirit and see what all the WoW hype is about. Four days, 3 characters, and a combined 20 […]

Rob‘s been away at GDC this week and he’s been taking pictures of the boothbabes apparently. This photo is from his flickr page. With the fines for objectifying women set for this year I wonder how many boothbabes like this one we’ll be seeing at E3 2006?
