Morning Discussion

Whats up Shackers? The middle of the week seems to be treating you well, did you lose a few pounds? Looking good. GDC is ticking away, and so plenty of interesting news coming in such as the big announcement of the PC Gaming Alliance, and actual impressions of Too Human. And failing all other forms of amusement, you could make a flip-book of Mario Kart Wii screenshots.

  • So I'm suppose to wake up at 4am on saturday morning, and drive 4 hours to williamsburg, va for a bike race. It will be the first time I get a chance to race my new Time Trial bike, and one of the few Collegiate Race's I'll be able to compete in.

    Except 2 hours ago, I took one of my bikes off the hook to trade the pedals onto the time trial bike. While lifting the bike to put t back on the ceiling hook, my back began to hurt, and I couldn't lift the bike high enough. Thinking it was a single incident, I tried again, and could not lift it at all.

    I am now left laying on the couch, watching invader zim hoping the pain goes away within the next 8 hours and does not return. There's no likelyhood of this happening, is there? I'm too young for this to happen.
















  • Has anyone seen this? I've been searching, but it doesn't appear that anyone's posted about it.

    Five free MMOs. I've tried Shaiya and so far it's decent. I dicked around with Dream of Mirror Online a bit, and it's annoying for me. Might not be for you. Haven't looked at the others just yet. Shaiya is more of the EQ2/WoW/Guild Wars type, with the running around, killing, quests and whatnot. Dream of Mirror Online is apparently based off of relationships. You can have enemies, lovers, friends, and if you find your 'match' that the game creates for you, you get better stats, or something like that. Same thing with friends. Your enemy isn't necessarily an evil person, just someone that keeps you pushing forward. Or some gay shit like that.

    Looks like they have four fantasy-based ones (one of them being martial-arts focused) and a racing MMO. The next one I might try is Last Chaos.

    I really just want to find something that has decent crafting. I'm aiming to become the best cook/tailor this side of the internet. (Call me weird, but I really liked the way Horizons had with crafting and tradeskills.)
