High Latency Living -

Well 2012 was a mixed bag of nuts in terms of gaming we saw the release of a WoW expansion, and Guild Wars 2 escaped the fate of vaporware. We saw some failures too, such as SWTOR.

High Latency Love –

I want to thank all my readers, and also I want to salute to all the bloggers we saw that hung up their hats. I think the blogosphere took some heavy hits this year.

High Latency Prophesies –

Everyone makes predictions, like Keen has his…I’m making prophesy….this is some bibilical shit right here.

1. A DAOC clone will be announced. It will have RvR, and be fantasy setting. Mark Jacobs will include an NPC with my name on it.

2. WoW will finally announce Titan.

3. EVE will finally make sense to me.

4. I might actually answer the Darkfall PR guy’s email.

5. City of Steam becomes a huge hit, they add a virtual statue of me in Refuge.

6. There still will be no Warhammer 40k MMO in 2013

7. There will be more classic driven games, and resurgance of nostalgia thus Super Mario MMO will be born. 

8. Next expansion to WoW will be announced, 2 new player races….Naga, and Ogres. It will involve the return of the Titans, and be the branch over to the new MMO.

9. I might play an FPS MMO, then realize I suck at FPS, and quit one month later….but then again I do that every year it seems.

10. I become super rich, and start a 5v5 pvp arena team for WoW with Mila Kunis, Seth Green, William Shatner, and Trent Reznor. We will not be very good, just very cool.

We’ll come back to these next year and know that I have powers like Nostrodomous, and poop.

As a tradition I’m using the same picture as I always do. LOL! As I look back at past Yearly Lagouts it’s kind of funny how things went. Like I actually played RIFT, and DC Universe sucked…ok that wasn’t much of a surprise.

Alot happened in 2011, we had a Cataclysm in the World of Warcraft. The real world one will happen in 2012 says the Mayans.  We had some RIFTs to fight through. I had some personal losses, my grandmother passed. Then we just at the end we had Star Wars hit in a big way.

2011 was filled with ups, and downs, but I’m glad to shut the book on that chapter. I am looking forward to 2012, and to what SWTOR will bring me. Also as we creep closer, I can’t wait to see what the Warhammer 40k MMO will look like.

High Latency Love -

Like always taking some time to give some love to you the reader for sticking by me through out the years.  I also like to give out the love to my fellow bloggers, you who are in the trenches with me, slugging it out.

Special Shout Outs -

Go to Killing’Em Softly. Got some good tips here, and he pointed me towards TORHEAD.

Also to Scarybooster, of Scary Worlds.   He’s made this hobby even more enjoyable for me. He’s a good friend, and a good person. Thanks for everything my friend.

I also wanted to send a special shout out to Bee. I miss her writing for me, and I wanted to thank her for all she did for me in 2011. I hope one day she pops her head in High Latency Life, and gives us some more of her comedic writings, and slices from her life. I do miss her, and she will always be thought of with much High Latency Love.

Something Funny -


With that….

My Pooch Needs to Lay off the Hooch.

Well for me this is the last post for 2010, Thanks for taking time to visit us.

WoW - What a long strange trip it’s been, from Azgalor Alliance to Horde, then to a new guild with friends. We made some gold, raided some, and we had a Cataclysm hit. We had Bee join us here. We had some battles to fight against the RP’ers,  Feminists, and some illness. I pretended to even be a chick for a bit.

My goal in WoW for 2011 to get the guild to a point where we are doing heroics as a guild, and building some Guild XP. Then who knows maybe even 10 mans. On a personal level I want to get back to making some gold, and get my toons to 85, and Raid Ready.

I usually take part of Markco’s JMTC Blogging Carnival, but I really haven’t been on the quest to make gold, so I had nothing really to add to this besides the usual make some bags, shtick. So I sat out. It’s good stuff should check it out.

WAR - I don’t know if I’ll ever head back hear. So much stuff coming out down the pike, and I just got Dawn of War 2: Gold Pack (which includes Chaos Rising Expansion) for 20 bucks on Steam. I also ordered the Warhammer 40k Ultramarines. Thats going to feed my Warhammer fix for some time.

Star Wars: The Old Republic - So ready to start my Sith Warrior. Rest of my Guildies are going Republic Side, but we’ll try to use the Force to convince them otherwise.

Rift- Don’t think so. 

DC online - Not much of a superhero guy, but if it lets you make a villian, I might just give it a shot.

High Latency Love –

I love all of you, thanks for making this blog part of your life.  Check out some of the blogs on my blogroll, though most I read. Some are still there to honor the ones who wrote the blog.

Something Funny-

Here I am riding my new Invincible Mount

Have a Safe, and Happy New Years Eve, and Day, and I will see you in the Oh-Eleven

With that.
