Zork Returns

Some of you may recall the classic text adventure game of Zork. It died out long ago – around the time of the BBS’ demise, though I played them for a bit afterward. Well now we can relive the golden years of “Internet” gaming. Legends of Zork have been reenvisioned…Continue Reading

Meez

I read about meez.com recently and thought I’d have to go try it out. Meez.com is a 3D avatar generator, geared primarily towards 18-25 year-old blog owners like the type you’d see on MySpace or similar. So what do you think? Is it my gaming self? In related news, there’s…Continue Reading

I’m working on some other things for the gallery, but I won’t talk to that until I have something more than vapor-ware. The Live! environment…Continue Reading

MSI 3.0 (Update)

I finished the class Microsoft presented on MSI 3.0. It’s interesting stuff, but if you’re used to such things as RPM, it’s just catching up. Microsoft does have a nice feature coming out that is targeted to assist the gaming community. This new feature allows the original MSI installer to…Continue Reading
