Nerf This
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 July 2014, 7:53 am
  It all started with a science fiction show that lasted one season – Terra Nov – we wrote about it in an article called “The Geek Factor” .  It was surprising that a television show with a multi-million dollar budget (the cost per episode ultimately being it’s downfall) was using Nerf guns as weapons.  It...


Wild about Wildstar
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2014, 7:18 pm
Show 144 is out and you can listen to it here and on Itunes. This time out we welcome Saylah from Mystic Worlds - well friends it has been a long hard summer for us, especially our own Julie as her employer has kept her so busy she has to call home to see if she...


No Prisoners, No Mercy Teslacon Special
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2014, 8:40 am
Show 143 is live and you can listen to it here or on Itunes. O.K. we could have sworn we uploaded this one but we see it didn’t make it all the way to Virginworlds – mia culpa (ouraculpa?).  This time out we sat down and spent some time talking with the man who is called...


Dick Tracy eat you heart out!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 June 2014, 7:54 am
Busy, busy, busy…the last few months my employer has been trying to fit an 80 hour work week into 40 hours.   This means a lot of decompression and we have been decompressing in Wildstar – the subject of our next show.   While we busy ourselves about our next show something caught our eye...

Snipe Hunt
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 May 2014, 7:05 am
It’s called a fool’s errand and less commonly a “snipe hunt.”   Anyone who has ever been “the new kid” in any given business has been sent on one.   When I was in the military I was sent out on maneuvers with the rest of the troops.  Mind you,  I was in a rear area...


No Prisoners, No Mercy – Show 141 is live!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 May 2014, 7:32 am

The Same Old Grind
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 May 2014, 7:17 am
As we finish up the next show The Elder Scrolls Online (TESO) has been out over a month now.  My reaction is, perhaps, like a parent who complains to a child – I wouldn’t complain if I didn’t care (at least about the IP).  I am an Elder Scrolls Fan so I care about this...


Zenimax lowers the ban hammer

Zenimax lowers the ban hammer.


FIX THE D**N GAME!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 April 2014, 4:46 pm
  When I go to the store and buy a radio I expect to take it home, turn it on and have it play music. When I purchase a car I expect it to be able to drive down the street.  Even if the merchants selling me the radio and the car tell me “as...


Putting the bite on players
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 April 2014, 7:27 am
“The latest round of player scams” – sounds like a phrase about Eve Online but it isn’t – it’s about Elder Scrolls Online.   Players who wish to have characters that are vampires are werewolves, as they could in Skyrim, can do so online…but it will cost you.  Not because of anything Bethesda did (maybe...


Game Error 209

Much Ado About Nothing
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 April 2014, 8:17 pm
Before anyone ever thought to make an Elder Scrolls Online one of Bethesda’s developers said he would never want to see an Elder Scrolls Online game. His reason at the time was that Elder Scrolls was about him and that wasn’t possible as a multi-player game.  My reason for saying this is that Bethesda,  who...


Hang on its going to be a bumpy ride
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 April 2014, 7:08 am
Hang on it’s going to be a bumpy ride…maybe. So far the reception we have heard to Elder Scrolls Online while we are actually on line  has been positive.   More than once I we have read in chat “I am having a great time even with all the bugs.”  Every game has  some bugs...


Seeing into the future
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 March 2014, 7:23 am
When I first read the news about Facebook purchasing Oculus Rift my reaction was much like Luke Plunkett at Kotaku…for 2 billion dollars, seriously.   Then I read it was $400 million and 1.6 million in stock. The problem with stock is that it is like a quit claim deed – reading between the lines...


Cake and eat it too
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 March 2014, 7:19 am
Recently Gamespot featured a release from Bethesda’s Vice President of Public Relations, Peter Hines who defended their plan to charge a monthly $14.99 subscription fee in addition to the price of the game.  Here is a quote:   ‘We feel pretty strongly about the support we’re going to have for the game and what you’re...


Clearing the Bar
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 March 2014, 8:22 pm
As our regular listeners are already aware, show 139 is live and can be heard here.   Now on to business…. This weekend we have been invited, as have many others, to another round of Elder Scrolls Online.  Let us just point out from the start that we are big fans of the Elder Scrolls...


So, anyone know of a good substitute for Adobe InDesign?
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 March 2014, 3:56 pm
So, Adobe systems just announced that they will NO LONGER be producing any more software versions of Creative Suite 6. So, if you are a designer, graphic or web, and you own CS6…then that will be the LAST Adobe software, you will actually OWN any more. They want your money monthly, and they want it...


Looking for a dishonest review
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 February 2014, 7:14 am
As our regular listeners know, No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 138 is live.   At the moment we are working on show 139 – and one of the subjects covered is Elder Scrolls Online.  It’s not often we disagree with Tobold, but try as we might we have yet to find controversy about Elder Scrolls...


The New EA Rating System
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 February 2014, 12:42 am
What do you do when you are Electronic Arts and your game developer Mythic creates a remake of a classic game is nearly universally despised by the gaming community?  Why the answer is simple – you fix it so no one can give your game a rating of below five stars.   It seems that...


Lego My Ego
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 February 2014, 7:20 am
When Charlotte Benjamin recently wrote to the Lego Toy company requesting more “Lego girl people” to “go on adventures and have fun” likely neither she nor her parents imagined the storm they have started.   At just seven years she has created touched a nerve with her letter that has not only gone viral but reached...


Dollar Keeper
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 February 2014, 5:08 pm
Way back in 1997 a company named Bullfrog productions created a game called “Dungeon Keeper” .  It was published by Electronic arts back when games were written for DOS, the word “Playstation” didn’t have any numbers after it and Xbox was but a dream. To some the game was, and is still, considered a classic....


Giant on the horizon
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 January 2014, 6:59 am
There something big on the horizon. The sound of footsteps crashing through the global village is coming from Star Citzen, by Chris Roberts. Those of us who have been gaming since the PC-DOS days remember him from his days at Origin Systems where he brought us Wing Commander – the game he characterized as “World...


Candy Crushed
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2014, 7:37 am
The makers of the game Candy Crush have managed to trademark the word “Candy” and reports on ABC News in  Chicago are that they are asking other developers to remove the word “Candy” from their games. Rumors abound this morning that Blizzard, creators of the wildly popular game “World of Warcraft” have managed to trademark...


Greedy Birds Go!
Posted by No Prisoners, No Mercy [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 January 2014, 8:09 pm
The first time I saw an angry bird he was an African Grey and nobody wanted him.  I took him home and gave him a home and lots of love – angry bird that he was. The second time I saw an angry bird it looked like the one above.  A friend of mine was...
