Hey Darkfall, we need to talk.

I don't think we can be together anymore.

No, no, please don't cry, it's not you, it's me.

Your just too.... high maintainence. I just don't have the same time that used to have to give to you. I've got my hands full with school and friends. You want me to stay around all day and play with you, but I just can't anymore. My life has gotten more complicated.

No, don't try to convince me otherwise. I know it's hard for you, but you've just gotta move on.

I know you've been trying to change, but it's just not enough. You just want too much of my time, and I have higher priorities right now. No matter how much you want to cut down on your grind, I still think it's too much. I just don't know if I can take it anymore.

Oh, so now you don't want me anymore!? I know what your trying to do here! Your trying to guilt me back into being with you by saying you don't care!? Well it's not gonna work this time. I'm not falling for this trick a fourth time.

Well since were sharing secrets now, I was cheating on you the whole time. Yeah it's true, I've been playing World of Warcraft all along.


I had to raise my voice! You wouldn't let me say anything over your race alliance yelling!

Look, I'm sorry it's gotta end like this. World of Warcraft just doesn't want to take up my whole day like you do. She's ready for me when I'm ready for her. I can jump in and play for a couple of minutes, or a couple of hours, it doesn't matter to her, She's just enjoying our time together. You just want more and more from me, and it feels like i'm getting less the more time we spend together.

I'm sorry that it has to end this way, but I can't think of any other way for this to go on. Hopefully we can at least stay friends, maybe hook up in the future when things calm down in my life.

Until then, keep doing what your doing, your doing it right. I know we'll see each other again. (next summer.)

State of the War: How every Game System is doing and my (Very Late) Reviews

             Yes it may be late, but I have finally decided to put in my opinion about the consoles, their hardware, and how well they are doing financally. Most who read this won't care what I say about the consoles, so I will jump straight to the PC review.


       PC Review Part 1: The Games


           Well in the games category it is a mixed bag for the PC. There are many terrific games out there, but the PC has it's share of junk, shovelware, etc. My favorite genre of game on the PC is the one with some of the best and worst games for the PC, The MMORPG genre. It has many styles of game for many people to play, but it is also filled with buggy messes and games that are just plain out not fun. It also has those gems that are just the best ways to communicate with friends or do whatever you want.

Games section final verdict: 4 Out Of 5

PC Review Part 2: The Hardware


Here is the hardest part of the PC to review: the hardware. It has the most advanced technology to play games in it, but it is also the most expensive thing to buy and maintain. You could spend thousands a year just upgrading you PC so you can play games that are classified as "Next Gen"or you can keep it the same and still enjoy the older games. Overall, the most technologically advanced platform.

PC Hardware Final Verdict: 5 Out Of 5


Now onto the game systems, let's start with my personal favorite, the PS3.


PS3 Review Part 1: The Games


      The PS3 has a wide variety of games, covering many genres of games. You have LittleBigPlanet, a very creative platformer that allows you to design your own levels and download other user created levels. Then you have Resistance 2, a FPS of gigantic proportions. 

      But alas, you have the other horrible games that demote this consoles score in this category. You have Vampire Rain: Altered Species, which is a port of the awful Xbox360 version. Then you have other 3rd party games which help deminish the score of the PS3

PS3 Games Final Verdict: 3.5 out of 5


PS3 Review Part 2: The Hardware


The hardware of the PS3 is where it beats the other 2 consoles in terms of technology. The PS3 has a lower hardware failure rate then the Xbox 360 and the Wii, and it also uses advanced technology that has remained untapped by developers. It is only beaten by the PC, which will always be lightyears ahead from consoles.

PS3 Hardware Final Verdict: 4.5 Out Of 5


Now onto the choice of most hardcore console users, the Xbox 360.


Xbox 360 Review Part 1: The Games


        The Xbox 360 has many great games, but it also has a lot of crap too. One of the better games I have found is Gears of War 2, which doesn't have a very mature or long storyline, but it is at it's best when played online. The 360 also has many family orientated games, which have helped sales go up.

            The 360 is also plagued by many bugged filled messes too. One such game, Two Worlds, had one of the worst framerates I have ever seen. it was like watching slideshow, except in a video game. Another is Fuzion Frenzy 2, which is a horrible collection of minigames that will bore you to death.

Xbox 360 Games Final Verdict: 3 Out Of 5


Xbox 360 Review Part 2: The Hardware


       Hardware is where the 360 utterly fails. (besides one little thing called Xbox Live) the 360 doesn't have BAD graphics, it's just it's success rate. When Xbox 360's were first coming off the assembly line, they had 1 in 4 Xbox 360s suffering from this hardware failure called the "Red Ring of Death" which would prevent games from playing on the 360.


           The part where the 360 shines in the hardware catagory is Xbox Live. It is the best online console service out there. It has streamlined searching for arcade games, and it has also added Mi... I mean Avatars to the service. It also has brought a great feature that lets you watch movies directly from Netflix on your Xbox 360.


Xbox 360 Hardware Final Verdict: 2.5 Out Of 5


      Now onto the system of choice for casual gamers, the Wii.


Wii Review Part 1: The Games


      What to say about the Wii's selection of games...... all I can say is that most of the games for the Wii are Shovelware designed to take advantage of people who haven't played games before. There are only a few games I could recommend to people, and they may not be some people's preferred game.


Wii Games Final Verdict: 2 Out Of 5 (Those few gems save it's score by a point)


Wii Review Part 2: The Hardware


       The Wii's hardware is modest, to say the least. It isn't plagued by hardware failures, but it isn't the most graphically supercharged platform either. It has by far, the worst graphic capability of any of the consoles out right now. The added problems of no hard drive, almost no online capable games, and the dreaded friend codes don't really help the systems score.

Wii Hardware Final Verdict: 3 out of 5


Well on to the last part of this blog entry, the state of each station saleswise. I'll put it as list form so I won't have to make anyone read anymore long paragraphs.

1. The Wii

2. The Xbox 360

3. The PS3

Unknown: The PC


Well I hope that everyone Enjoyed reading this and I hope it helps some out there who are still looking for that console of choice.

18+ guilds, why?

Hello all, I am a MMORPG addicted kid who wants to share with you the mature side of children. I want to bring forth a topic that has made me question how other kids in my age group act. I want to talk about all of the 18+ guilds/clans out there.

Before I get flamed to death, I will be presenting both sides of the coin. Why guilds want to exclude, and why they shouldn't exclude ALL of them. My points are very thought out and I have even talked to one of my friends who runs an 18+ guild. I think that gives me a good enough background information to give you a detailed blog post about this topic.

Now on to the good stuff:

Good reasons why to exclude the "under 18" age group:

In general, kids around the 8 to 15 year age group tend to be very immature. Excessive swearing, use of fart jokes, and general idiocy prevent the more mature among the age group to be a part of a mature MMORPG community.Use WoW as an example. Many times during my (very short) playtime of World of Warcraft, I have ran into very immature individuals. One such example is a character on the Horde side.I was having a great time with people in the starting zone, when a level 30 Horde character came in.He proceeded to challenge everyone to a duel. if someone declined, he would tell them they had no balls and should give up playing video games. If someone accepted and lost, he would yell "YOU SUCK SO MUCH LOL I AM THE MASTER!" I then asked him his age and he said he was 15.

When I questioned my friend about why he had an 18+ only guild, he said that he didn't think that kids should hear some thing that they discuss. In my personal opinion, I think that I've HEARD IT ALL. You wouldn't believe some of this bullshit kids talk about in my class! Even though I think that I would be able to take it, maybe more delicate (and innocent) minds would be offended.No body wants a screaming parent wondering where their child learned what a "blow job" was from his "Friends in "Insert MMORPG here."Trust me, I've heard it before, it's not pretty.

On to the next topic:

Reasons why they should allow some, not all, kids into their guilds.

If your a kid like me, and you've wanted to join a hardcore guild for a certain MMORPG, then you search for one. Once you find one, you've found that you meet every single requirement. Your extremely excited that you've found your perfect guild, but then you see those dreaded words: Over 18 only! For me, it just breaks my heart that my perfect guild won't let me in just because I wasn't born around the same time they were, or before they were.Just because so many of my peers show such child-like behaviour doesn't mean I act the same way! If I were to meet some of these clan leaders I would give them a valid reason to let me in. But just because I'm under 18, some people won't even give me a chance!

Well I hope I gave you all some valid points to think about in this post. Just think that if you were in my shoes, would you want some person to deny you access to something just because your too young? The least you could do is give us kids a chance! We all aren't a bunch of hoodlums you know, we might actually surprise you once in a while... :)

EDIT: Feel free in the comments to add your comments on why or why not kids should be allowed access.
