Transmetropolitan
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 March 2014, 11:15 am
Transmetropolitan is a comic series written by Warren Ellis that ran sixty issues from 1997 to 2002. I own the complete run but had never finished reading it, I’d stopped at issue 45. No idea why really except that I’m easily distracted, and yes that means I have twelve year old comics in my reading backlog. […]


Books and Board Games
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 February 2014, 3:55 pm
Books I’m up to 10 books read for the year so far, which puts me 3 ahead of schedule for my GoodReads goal of 50 and leaves me with 152 (I moved a few books from the wishlist over and added a few shorts, so the math doesn’t match up with my last progress post). […]


List Resolution Progress
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 January 2014, 9:45 am
Over the last ten days I’ve been working on my lists resolution, so far I have lists of books, comics, movies, gamebooks, and video games. My goal is to complete each of these lists, except the book list, by the end of December. That one’s just too big to finish, but if I can get […]


For 2014
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 January 2014, 11:30 am
Games Of the MMO releases planned for 2014, Elder Scrolls Online is the only one that I’m planning to buy and play at launch. I expect to have fun for a few months before moving on to something else. I’ll be extremely surprised if I’m still playing by December. I’ve had very little interest in […]


Looking Back at 2013
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 January 2014, 12:00 pm
What a weird year 2013 has been. I started the year looking forward to several MMOs none of which lasted. City of Stream imploded, Defiance and Neverwinter both fizzled for me, and Elder Scrolls Online didn’t release. Defiance turned out to be the least social MMO I’ve ever played, and add to that the bugginess […]


NaNoWriMo Won!
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 December 2013, 3:51 pm
After two failed attempts, one serious and one not so serious, I’ve finally won November! Of course anyone who’s stopped by already knows from the NaNoWriMo widget on the right. Ironically it’s taken me until the end of December to actually write about it, some things never change. I learned a few things this year. […]


Third Time’s the Charm?
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 November 2013, 12:07 am
It’s November, which means National Novel Writing Month. I’ve tried twice now in 2009 and 2010. In 2009 I didn’t really approach it seriously. I started late, had no idea what I was going to write, and didn’t dedicate much time to it. I think that was around when Arkham Asylum came out and I […]


Firefly the Game
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 October 2013, 12:11 pm
Made by Gale Force 9, Firefly the Game let’s you return to the ‘Verse to “Find a Crew, Find a Job, Keep Flying.” What’s in the Box Let’s talk about the physical bits first. There are a lot of parts. A lot. Starting with cards there are two decks for events while flying (forty cards each), one for […]


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 0-8-4
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 October 2013, 1:18 am
The second episode was better than the first. The various team members were all able to develop a little bit, and more importantly the team as a whole started to develop. The most interesting thing to me about the episode was starting to understand the role Coulson is going to play in the series. He is […]


Joss and S.H.I.E.L.D.
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 September 2013, 11:05 am
I was reading the Entertainment Weekly interview of Joss Whedon while waiting on my wife to go to bed so I could have the TV and was reminded several times why I love his work so much, for example: Is there anything from your previous TV experiences where you’re like, “Now I know this, therefore […]


Tin Man Games is five too.
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 September 2013, 8:33 pm
Not only is my blog five years old now, one of my favorite gamebook publishers is too. Tin Man Games is celebrating their fifth anniversary by releasing the eighth book in the Orlandes setting, Curse of the Assassin. Their gamebooks are available on both Android and iOS. They have music, illustrations, and handle all of the combat and inventory […]


Feature Episode series comes to the STO Foundry
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 September 2013, 1:08 pm
Authors from Starbase UGC have teamed up to make a six part series on the level of Cryptic’s Featured Episode series. I can’t wait to check the first one out come October 1st, while I really enjoyed the Romulan expansion my favorite character will always be my first Federation one, Bryn, and I’m looking forward to […]


Firefly Comics from Dark Horse
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2013, 10:06 am
You know how often you see something but you’re seeing what you want or expect to see and not what’s actually there? Catching up on my news in Feedly yesterday, I caught this story on The Mary Sue (who got it from CBR here) with the title “You’re Getting Post-Serenity Firefly Stories Thanks To Dark Horse.” My initial reaction […]


Year five?!
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 September 2013, 1:00 pm
This has been, by far, the roughest year for me with blogging. I’ve been on a hiatus of sorts since April and only last week really started to feel the need to start writing here again. Really I don’t feel like I’ve missed too much as far as topics or news. It seems like it’s […]


Catching up: GenCon 2013
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2013, 2:35 pm
This year was my third time going to GenCon, but in a real sense it was my first time attending. See, my previous two visits I would go down for a day on Saturday and spend most of my time wandering the main exhibit hall. I’d see a few cosplayers, buy a few role-playing books, […]


Windhammer Gamebook Competition
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2013, 10:41 pm
Arborell is sponsoring their annual Windhammer Prize for Short Gamebook Fiction. There are fourteen entries this year and the voting is open from now until October 30th. These are short works and generally take half an hour or so to get through. I’ve gotten through about half of the entries so far and there are a […]


h20rat
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2013, 10:39 pm
I’ve been on an extended MMO break, but I still check in once a week or so on a few sites to keep an eye on things, which is how I found out that Cryptic’s Mark Valentine, h20rat, lost his battle with cancer. Mark did all of the marketing videos for the Cryptic games. He [...]


Defiance the Game
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2013, 9:00 am
I’ve been playing a ton of Defiance lately. It’s fun. You should try it out. You want more detail? Okay fine. It’s an interesting combination of shooter and MMO. I think it’s geared more towards MMO players than shooter fans though. If you’re a hard core Gears of Halo Duty fan, I imagine you’ll find [...]


Been gone Minecrafting
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2013, 9:00 am
So that was a longer than intended break, especially since I thought doing my January write-ups had gotten me recharged. I just took a break from writing though not gaming. In February I rediscovered Minecraft, or more specifically I discovered mod packs. I was introduced to YouTuber Direwolf20 from watching a Hat Films video (whom [...]


Expectations and Resolutions for 2013
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 January 2013, 8:00 am
Writing In January 2012, I’d resolved to post directly to the blog more and edit less. I had an especially bad habit of leaving posts to languish in my drafts folder for months and then deleting them because they weren’t topical anymore. While I did get better about editing, I didn’t post straight to the [...]


2012
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 January 2013, 8:00 am
What a year! In the past I’ve done an annual review of what I played and how well my expectations from January matched up with reality in December, and I’ve been working on exactly that for this year but feels too long and hasn’t been very interesting to write so I can imagine how much [...]


Dishonored
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 October 2012, 8:00 am
I bought Dishonored from Steam. I considered getting it for my Xbox, but didn’t because I was hoping that it would be opened up for mods eventually and because the load times for PC were much faster. The load times were a major decision point for me as I don’t play many stealth games and I [...]


Middle-Earth travel plans delayed slightly.
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 October 2012, 1:45 pm
The Riders of Rohan expansion snuck up on me. Despite reading dozens of articles and seeing lots of mentions on Twitter, I didn’t actually realize how close the launch was until Sunday night. I was catching up on my news and saw the goodie bag reminder from Goldenstar, so I logged in to reopen my home [...]


Star Trek Online’s September State of the Game
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2012, 3:04 pm
Despite Guild Wars 2 dominating my gaming time lately, I have been popping into STO every couple of days to check in on the fleet and setup some duty officer assignments. I’ve also been keeping track of updates and news including the recent September State of the Game. Aside from the usual talk about the [...]


Four years, almost missed it.
Posted by Blue Kae [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 September 2012, 5:00 pm
On Friday as I was leaving work, I looked at the calendar on my phone to see if anything was planned for the weekend and saw that Sunday was my blog’s anniversary. I nearly missed it. I hadn’t realized that it’s been almost exactly a month since my last post, but I guess it’s not [...]
