My Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds.

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on January 31, 2012 by theerivs

Doc Holiday in the Movie Tombstone said that “My Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds” . This line came into my head when I read my friend Markco was banned for doing what he was supposed to, and can do, because Blizzard’s hypocrisy doesn’t know any bounds either.

Having just plunked down the money for the Diablo 3 Collectors Edition, am infuriated. Sure I wasn’t going to be a Markco, but make some money at doing what I love….who doesn’t wish that. Then if you are too good, then they will ban you. 

If you don’t want players to make money, don’t have a real money auction house….you Blizzard are no daisies.

I’m the Diet Coke of Evil

Even though in the virtual world,  I am Lawful Evil, and in every game I dedicate myself to the forces of malice, and chaos, and basically the douche bag of the blogosphere.  In my real life realm, I try to give back with my time and money. 

When I recently received an email about Iron Man Mode, and their endeavor to rise awareness, and give back to the community I felt compulsion to give them some props.

Iron Man Mode is an interesting concept, I find intriguing. You play a game, when you die the blog dies. That’s pretty cool I would think, though this blog would be dead 8,000 times over. Well I played a Mage in WoW for years, we died anytime some one dropped a hat.  Even though I just started reading them, I can already tell they are up to the challenge. So check them out.

Also check out their charity page, and try to help them raise some money for Child’s Play. I’ll be giving them a little money, as soon as I rob some piggy banks from little babies….Wha? Ain’t like I’m eating the babies….like I do SWTOR.

High Latency Gaming-

As I work on my SWTOR toons, I can’t help my eyes wandering over to other games like STO, which is F2P now, or with news about GW2. I don’t know if it’s ADD, or really something is bad about SWTOR, and I’m in denial. Either way I’m banging away at my main toon. I really need credits, so I’m slicing like it’s my job.

High Latency Love -

I missed this earlier on Bootae’s blog, but any Mechwarrior news is good Mechawarrior news…that’s why he’s on my Honor Roll! Thanks for looking out Boot’s. The question is how I miss this…. I LOVE MECHWARRIOR/BT Universe. I am ashamed of myself.  

Mechwarrior Online.

Something Funny…

Slice Faster Bitch!

With that…


I Feel Like a Good Slowfall.

Posted in MMORPG with tags , on January 25, 2012 by theerivs

I’m going to be honest, I love SWTOR. I loved RIFT, I loved Warhammer.

There are times though I really miss my mage. We had alot of adventures together. He’s like an old friend that I use to pal around together.  As I think back to my mage, there are some things I just truly miss.

Some things I miss….

5. Blinking the hell out of there – As a mage sometimes you get a little overrunned by the mobs. Running away is a strategy to a mage, and nothing like running and blinking the hell out of a situation, toss in a good frost nova and I would laugh my arse off as I ran.

4. Invisibility -  I loved it when everyone else wiped, and I’d sit there and wait for them to come back, cause I hit Invisible at the right time when we wiped.

3. Blizzard – I love all the huge numbers that would be flying by when I would open up a can of whoop-ass.

2. Teleports – Man, making gold off them, tricking people with them, heck sometimes I would just teleport cause I was bored.

1. Slowfall – When life would get me down, or I was bored I would climb to the highest points in Azeroth, jump off and just slowfall down, and watch the world go. It was very Zen, and it put me in a better state of mind.

So those are the reasons I miss the mage….

…that and my mage would eat babies….mofoes!

Who do I have to blow to get a beta invite?

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , , , on January 24, 2012 by theerivs

I was going to name this post “The Dragon Awakes” or something equally craptastic after this post from Arenanet. Alas I really do want a beta invite, and I think this would be more compelling I think. So with a nice whorish shade of lipstick on, who exactly do I have to blow to get a beta invite for GW2.

Like a good Beta Hooker that I am, I’ve had plenty of John’s like Bioware, I’ve been in the sack with Blizzard too, as well as a multitude of other game companies. Sometimes I been in the middle of a Beta Bukkake, as I beta test several games at the same time, all of them spewing forth their buggy goodness onto my face.

GW2 looks hot, and ever since talk began swirling about it there has been an unquenchable burning in my loins. I want to be a part of the hot, sticky, adventure and feel the ups, and downs of this beta, thrusting my opinions deep into the recesses of the developers minds.

I can’t wait to hear from you Arenanet, until then I’ll just slowly eat these bananas, carrots, and popsicles I have here.

Why Do I Blog?

Posted in Writing with tags , on January 23, 2012 by theerivs

Scary laments about his skills, and the whatfors of his blogging. It had me thinking why do I blog. I mean I suck at writing, I am not that well informed, I couldn’t min-max a stat to save a life.  Compared to some of those bloggers on his list, I am a flea on the blogospheres ass.

So why am I here….why do I waste my time, and possibly yours. I think it’s time for a list, cause the Internet loves a list.

1. It’s a hobby – People don’t build models of airplanes because they are going to show them off in competition with each other for the most part. People build model airplanes to reduce stress, to take a step back from life, and do something they enjoy.  I don’t take this overtly serious, it’s just something I do when I have time.

2. I enjoy writing – Even though I suck at it,  I enjoy doing it. I like to play chess too, and I suck at that as well. It takes me about 10 minutes to write a post, just imagine if I actually put effort into this.

3. Part of something – Even though I am a small shadowy corner of the blogosphere, I feel I am a part of it.

4. Camaraderie – I feel without blogging, I wouldn’t of met so many interesting people, and keep meeting them.

5. Bad Boy – I got this reputation among the blogosphere as a little bit rough around the edges bad boy, and I feel I have a niche to fill. Way to many good guys out there, someone has to be an asshole, and I am that man.

Well I continue the Grind with SWTOR, but the funny thing it I worry about this game, how will end game be. Though in no way did the latest patch snafu scare me on the PvP side. I just hope there is life after 50

High Latency Love-

The Jedi Gambit is run by an old friend of mine, who helped me out back in the day, and I want to make sure he gets some love, and keeps getting some love.

I’m the Juggernaut, Bitch!

Posted in MMORPG with tags , , on January 20, 2012 by theerivs

I play a Sith Juggernaut as my main, and scouring the Internet for some Juggernaut, I got some gems for my Juggernaut homies of the oldrepublicordie , Darth Hater, and SWTOR FACE website, thought I would share, though I don’t agree with everything they say, I found some info useful. Enjoy!

I hope this stuff helps you a bit



Hi my name is River, Who the hell are you?

Posted in Writing with tags , on January 19, 2012 by theerivs

So I like to gander who is coming to my website, and from where once in awhile, and once in a while I come up with some strange site or another. Here’s the most recent strangness. Some Forums put a link to me from their site. I don’t even know why cause it’s all in a different language. I think it’s some sort of Russian.

This is what they said about me.

tak ještě k tomu mágovi neni to na wowko ale jen for fun ale chtěl bych něco jako chaotic (scoopy): něco z netu třeba tohle: akorát male :D ale i tak díky za snahu

I have no clue what they are saying, are they saying I suck and want to kill me, or are they saying I am so awesome they want their hot women to marry me.

It boggles my mind sometimes this wonderful thing we call the internet, and then there are those greedy mongers who want to stiffle it. Here’s the thing is they are going back to 2009, if they can go back to find something so can the SOPA/PIPA people, but some good news on that front alot of politicians who were backing it, have removed their support…but I digress.

No Post Because of My Protest of SOPA

Posted in MMORPG with tags on January 18, 2012 by theerivs

There is no real post today due to SOPA(PIPA). Everyday our rights are more and more infringed on.

Learn more Here, and Here.

Kill Ten Rats had a great post too


Bottomline…I do not support SOPA, or PIPA
