Romulans coming to Star Trek Online

Check out the upcoming expansion coming to Star Trek Online .. Romulans!!    Ok, this isn't really a surprise because lets face it, fans have been clamoring for Romulans in STO since the game first launched.    Thankfully they waited until now to do this, because I think that they will actually do this race justice.    STO had a rough start from the beginning, I know since I have a lifetime sub to it, and have heard all the outrage about the game when Cryptic first released it.    But since the change to free to play indeed over time, this game continues to grow in quality and in following.    It is a very good solid MMO.   The release of the Romulan Expansion is a testament to a growing playerbase, and Perfect World/Cryptic's commitment to the game.   


Fantasy from Mercs coming soon.

So the Mercs guys are also dabbling in a fantasy motif called Myth .. soon to be on Kickstarter.    Good for them.   Check out the article from

Also the MERCS forums.   Facebook.

More MERCS is also on their plans, including a dice game, rpg etc... that the developers hope their Kickstarter (MYTH) will bring in enough cash to develop.    Awesome.   I hope they make tons of cash.

I just received two more MERC factions in the mail, Sedafu, and Kemvar.   I think these will be the last ones I get for awhile.    My goal was to have enough variety to bring these suckers out to play, as well as have enough that other players can try out MERCS themselves.   I also think that my desire to paint mini's has finally been satiated.

Neverwinter Beta

I played the Neverwinter Beta over the weekend, well .. for a bit since I went to TABSCON on Saturday in Toronto.    Anywhoo, I had tons of fun exploring some D&D goodness as a Dwarf female Rogue (Cirsee).   I'm just going to point to a  link from Youtube, which has around the first 40min. or so of footage from a Tank's perspective.   Spoiler alert.. but enjoy.

Lancer .. Humorous and Disturbing *sigh*

I picked up Lancer's album in January and loved  the music from it.   Then I saw their newest video .. and .. ya it disturbed me and yet ... if you stay to the very end, you sort of get the whole tongue and cheekiness of it.
I had the same feeling that I had when I was in Bible College, and there was a talent night.    One of my good friends thought he'd show a home-video movie (this is back in the early '90's).     Basically it was sort of like Die Hard 2 ish ... there were snowmobiles .. shootings with fake blood.   Really just something that a bunch of friends would do to blow off an afternoon.    Bringing it to show at a talent night ... with kids in the audience ... NOT a good idea.   I had a queasy moment in my stomach at my friends embarrasement.    We laughed at it over time, but at THAT time, I felt bad for him, and he turned it off and apologized to the audience.    For some reason this video reminded me of that same moment, which is like .. I know you guys are having a blast making this, but you missed the boat on bringing a decent video that will help bring to your music to the masses.    .. But, I could be wrong.   Who knows.  Live and learn

This site has trouble with youtube vids, so here's the link:

Ah Mercs week ...

Mercs Week on Beasts of War

MERCS week is over ... boo ... but if you haven't check out the sight and the past coverage they did on my newest obsession.   This week had its casualties, most notibly my pocketbook, because seriously, those Sedafu's look great.    Don't know what I'm talking about?  Check out the MERC's week video's.   

Played my first MERC's games yesterday .. fun stuff.   The very first game was cool as we were figuring things out, got pawned, but it was a good type of pawned.   Second game I fared better.   One of the best features of the game is how each figure gets initiative to do an action at the begining of their turn based on how high the die roll is.    This is probably the greatest thing in a mini game.     This causes you to re-think strategies, and keeps you on your toes.   The best thing is that there really is no 'down -time' .. you feel the quickness of the action.    Both games lasted two hours each using just a 2D playmat printed on a black-and-white sheet of paper.   Those hours went quick... real quick.   This is a good sign.   Looking forward to playing more at TABScon on Saturday.
