Richard's Ramblings

Just because sometimes my mind overflows its brainpan. Figured this would make as good of an outlet to catch those overflows as any. No set theme, topic, or schedule, just whatever and whenever. :)

Getting a little late of a start this morning, but we have nothing scheduled early and it's going to be a very late night tonight. CCP's after-party is tonight and we'll definitely be attending as no one throws a party like CCP does. :)

1345: I also now have my own quest. I seem to have lost one News Editor by the name of Szark. If anyone stumbles upon him please send him my way. Off to continue my hunt, more updates later!

1330: It appears that I have become a quest item for the convention. Many of the other press and community folks have taken it upon themselves to track me down and stick swag in my backpack. Not that I'm complaining at all, it makes my swag hunting far less easier, so by all means, please, deliver swag to me so I don't have to go track it down. Although, I believe their ultimate goal is to weigh my backpack down as much as possible and tip me over.

1200: Spent about 30 minutes playing around on Champions Online. I must say I absolutely love the graphics of this game, it captures the superhero/comic feel more perfectly than I could have ever imagined possible. The combat was fast paced and fun, and didn't feel 'gimmicky' at all. They had XBox 360 controllers plugged in to use, and I tried it for a bit, but I preferred the keyboard and mouse setup by far. But that is probably more due to personal preference than anything, I watched several people using the 360 controllers and they looked very comfortable with them. After spending the time I did playing, this game has risen quite a bit in my 'most anticipated games' list. I enjoyed the 'Cities of...' games a lot, but Champions definitely looks like it's going to be a great game.

1100: Spent some time talking to Jeremy Dale of Mythic Entertainment about WAR. Great guy, always liked working with him when I was with Mythic. You can really tell that he absolutely loves what he's doing and the game. Also spent some time playing the game. It has DEFINITELY come a VERY long way since I last played while working for Mythic. Although, like most of you I'm sure, I'm very saddened by the cuts that were made recently but I also understand why it was done and can see the positive sides of it as well. I played a Swordmaster for about 15-20 minutes and it was very fun. The class seems very straight forward and well done. The area I was running around in was new to me as most of the elf content was still in the early stages when I was with the company.

1000: Awake, breakfasted and con bound. Not a lot on the agenda today, one interview left, that's with Jack at Cryptic. There are a couple panels/seminars we're going to try to catch, almost all of which are also being done by Cryptic. And I'm planning to get some extensive hands on time with Champions Online and maybe a couple others. Updates on tidbits from previous days' entries and other random tidbits: Back of the nipple ring still lost. Xbox 360 still broke. I still hate cabs. I'm still amazed by how many people IGN Vault brought to this event. TTH surprised me by how few they brought. No NCSoft or Blizzard makes me sad.
