Woot! This week’s Rock Band DLC is a 3-song pack, for $3, that includes: * “Skullcrusher Mountain” – Jonathan Coulton * “Livin’ on the Corner of Dude and Catastrophe” – MC Frontalot * “Shhh….” – Darkest of the Hillside Thickets All are masters, and all proceeds go to Penny Arcade’s […]

I haven’t seen this officially on the NA Warhammer sites, but the European site says that the Warhammer Online Headstart Program starts on Sept. 14th for Collector’s Edition pre-orders, and Sept. 15th for standard orders. Note that the 14th is a Sunday, so (most) CE pre-orders have a full day […]

So after I flamed out on Age of Conan, and used up my free EQ2 time, I was stuck with no MMO to play for August and the start of September. I didn’t want to burn out on the War beta, so I turned to Lord of the Rings Online. […]

Actually, the title of the post says it all. A friend who has been playing in the Preview Weekend says that the servers are crowded but that everything is going very smoothly, with no crashes, very little lag, and almost no waiting to finish quests. Let’s hope its an indication […]
