A Brief Note On the Subject of Driver’s Licenses

So my old CT driver’s license was set to expire in about a month, meaning I got the joy of going down to the DMV to get it renewed today. And by “joy” and “DMV” I mean there were more (polite, friendly) people working at the DMV than there were people needing help, as opposed to how it was in CT, where “joy” and “DMV” basically meant “Kind of looked like a prison riot.” So that was nice.

Dragon Age: Failings

We are, let us acknowledge, well past the sell-by date on Dragon Age: Origins, but having just completed my third playthrough of the game, I find that I’d like to talk about some things that bugged me. Also, I haven’t done a gamecraft post in a while, and I find that problematic. None of this is particularly original, but I want to talk about it anyway. On the off chance you haven’t yet played through DA:O, thar be spoilers in them thar hills.

So a couple of days ago, Samson wrote a post about excavating old gaming artifacts. And, as I am a gamer of a certain age and also myself, I thought to myself “What does my version of that look like?” Well. Lots of boxes. Less rocks and dragon statues because I didn’t snag many collector’s editions. Sadly missing most of my old floppy games. But still, I put together a list.

Gnomes are an abomination. Seriously, I had a 2nd Ed. party during my University days. We had one character who played a Gnome Illusionist. He wrecked Gnomes for me FOREVER. He was soo annoying I met with the DM and planned out his death (I was an assassin) The rest of the party got wind of it and persuaded me against it. It was more him and less the Gnome he played, but I’ve hated Gnomes ever since. —Trent Oster

This Could Maybe Work Better

So I had a brief experience with gaming technology somewhat earlier. Me: I’m incredibly bored and apparently want to play an RPG. I kind of want to play Baldur’s Gate, but that seems silly because I’ll be doing that soon enough. Ultima VII: You could play me. Me: Well, I guess I could, but really I’d just get stuck outside Sleeping Bull so I could listen to that one song over and over again. Ultima VII: You really do like that song. You’ve been doing that for 20 years. Me: Time flies, etc. Anyway, I think I really wanted something Bioware. Dragon Age Origins: You could play me. Me: Well, maybe I could. And I added you to Steam, so… […]
