A week ago I deleted my oGame account in a fit of rage. At the time, my rank was hovering in the mid 600s and I was about to start trying for moon shots. With thousands of rocket launchers, hundreds of levels of mines, 9 planets, and the almighty ability to start building Deathstars on [...]

Portal: Chamber 13 in 4 Steps

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming, Reference Burst Theory on 13. Feb, 2008 | 4 Comments

This is just amazing. I haven’t been able to beat this chamber in less than 12 steps. I was sure that was the absolute minimum number of steps possible. This guy does it in 4 steps. Four. He makes a few mistakes, but it doesn’t cost him any steps because going through a portal and [...]

Mario Level Beats Itself

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming on 12. Feb, 2008 | 2 Comments

Browsing around a website that completely wastes my day, I found a video of a Mario level – a level I’ve never seen before – that is supposedly one of the hardest in the game, whichever game this is. Apparently, some guy figured out it would beat itself if you didn’t touch the controller. Mario [...]

Browser-Based ‘OGame’ Sci-Fi-ednessity

Here’s my planet. I don’t know what that means, but it’s mine. Oh, and I also have resources: I can use those to build & fuel things. Plus, I’m working on upgrading all my mines to build up tons of resources (which will undoubtedly dwindle away faster than they’re stockpiled). Someday, I’ll be able to [...]

I remember back when my paladin was edging closer and closer to the coveted level 60 by questing in the highest level places like the Plaguelands and Silithist. Now he’s sitting in Shattrath City drinking ale with a bunch of drunken Scryers. I got him all the way to 70 and bought him a nice [...]

Blizzard Pays You to Smoke Play Their Crack Game

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming, News on 04. May, 2007 | 5 Comments

Yes, those are World of Warcraft credit cards. Yes, puppies will start dying soon. There was a time when I thought the maker of World of Warcraft had a soul. But I recently found out yet again that a corporation cannot have a soul any more than a Mac user can have respect for a [...]

Top Fiver #1: Favorite Azerothian Zones

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming, Top Fivers on 25. Apr, 2007 | No Comments

I spent so much time recently in Outlands with my level 70 paladin that I started getting pretty nostalgic about life back in good ol’ Azeroth. I created a few new characters, namely my tauren druid, and I’ve been loving the simple life of the 10s and 20s. I recently got my night elf priest [...]

Wow, WoW’s still going strong

Posted by The Gimcracker in Gaming on 18. Apr, 2007 | No Comments

I don’t think I’ve ever played a game as consistently as I’ve played WoW the past 16 months. There are only two games I’ve played that have rivaled WoW in /played time, and they are Heroes of Might & Magic III and Half Life 2/Counter-Strike: Source. I’m sitting here with a 70 paladin with 23 [...]
