Blizzard Cancels Titan

Blizzard just announced that it is canceling Titan, an MMO many have been looking forward to for years. I must admit I am disappointed as I did enjoy WoW Vanilla but I also feel bad for all those folks who were waiting for this for a long long time. I personally think if it wasn't fun they should have canceled it a long time ago like after three years of development and come up with a new idea. This kind of thing would sink a smaller company easily but its amazing after wasting so much time, money and effort how easily they shrug it off. I personally think there are very few companies capable of doing an MMO correctly, and if Blizzard fails that means theres even less chance of seeing a good one soon. But I have heard good things about FF online (the newest one) from Anton and some good things from my brothers about another MMo they are playing so there may yet be hope.

Good site for Baldur's Gate 2 EE mods

Good List of mods here. I've been testing them and there are some gems. I recommend installing them and you will end up with a bg2eee (extra enhanced edition) :)

The item randomizer lets you turn the game into Diablo, (think random loot)

Some of the others make everything more challenging like real D&D so you have to think more, faster and be more careful in places where you thought you knew everything. Still others add lots of new quests and content.

The character ones I've enjoyed so far are Yasraena who is like the only good Drow npc you have ever gotten to play with, Branwen who lets you make fun of the game a lot, the evil Hexxat is interesting, Neera and Rasaad are kind of weak physically but have lots of character, and I'm going to try Angelo and Dorn soon.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year All!

I wanted to warm up your freezing new year (-50 degrees anyone?) with this hot tidbit of news:

Apparently Sony is un-consoling its games, which include some of the greatest RPG's that have ever been made! So now you can play the unconsoled games on Sony's cloud service.

See here for full story:

I can think of a few games I never played just because I never did own a PlayStation. I'm going to have to check it out.

Oh yeah, in other news, my wife is in labor. But its lasting a while and the hospital won't let us be admitted yet so I'm posting this instead. Can't wait to meet my new little girl when she arrives.
