The Best Of The Rest: Marvel-ous Edition

"I knew I dropped it here somewhere..."

Another week has zoomed past and it’s time to reflect on all of those great MMORPG (and occasional other geek related) articles from across the web and blogosphere. In more personal news though, I had the pleasure of seeing Iron Man 2 this weekend. Jolly good film and great fun even if I think I prefer the first one over it (I’d give the original an A grade and the sequel a solid B+). Although not perfect or as staggeringly awesome as I had hoped for, I’d still highly recommend Iron Man 2 when it’s finally released in the US (heh, sorry, couldn’t resist) if, for nothing else, just to see Samuel L. Jackson portray Nick Fury and set up the Avengers film. Oh and here’s a helpful hint: sit through the credits, there’s another scene at the end of them.

Damage Meters Corrupt; Absolute Damage Meters Corrupt Absolutely

One day there will be no graphics, there will only be charts

One day there will be no graphics, there will only be charts

As part of my guest post inspiration quest, Adam from the Noisy Rogue asked me for my take on how damage meters are used to evaluate DPS classes in WoW. As it was a topic I’d actually had some experience with personally not so long ago, I was pretty thrilled to get the chance to write something up for him.

The Best Of The Rest: Gentleman Rhymer Edition

Rapping in the UK has come a long way

Rapping in the UK has come a long way

I can’t believe how quicky the last week has passed. Is it just me or are the days flying by faster than ever? I didn’t manage to accomplish much apart from develop a rather slightly scary obsession with a British rapper called Mr B. Don’t worry, I haven’t started stalking him. Yet.

The Best Of The Rest: Smack The Pony Edition

Y’know what I really love about blogging and in particular the MMORPG blogosphere? Just when you think the week is turning out pretty dull and there isn’t going to be any exciting news, some company goes and adds a new product to their virtual store and unleashes a subsequent barrage of ultimate nerdrage and debate in the process. Like a flower starting to blossom for the first time, it’s a beautiful thing to behold.

The Best Of The Rest: Extreme Hangover Edition

I learnt a valuable lesson last night. It came to me when I was staring down the toilet bowl at 4am in the morning, the regurgitated taste of vodka tickling the back of my throat. Never, ever go on a drinking binge on an empty stomach, folks. The result has been a gut feeling like a toxic dump and a head feeling like a tribal African musician is playing the bongo drums inside my brains.

The Best Of The Rest: Easter Sunday Edition

Ah, Easter Sunday, the perfect excuse for lazing around with la familia and stuffing yourself silly with chocolate eggs. Or, if you’re me, trying to explain the connection between giant bunnies and Jesus Christ to my Buddhist wife.

This week also saw April Fools’ Day rear its Pinocchio’s nosed head. It’s a great day and a lot of fun so long as you don’t want to trust anything you read on the Internet. I, for one, just assumed everything within that 24 hour period was untrue as every blogger, including myself, took it upon themselves to lie their arses off. Jolly good fun, in my opinion.

So many excellent articles this week to pick from I feel like I’m barely doing the MMO blogosphere justice with this small list. Have I missed something? Why not let me know.

Happy Easter all!

The Best Of The Rest: No Drama Edition

It’s been a rather quiet week in the blogosphere with little or no dramas or craziness (at least that I’m aware of). Controversy can be fun but right now, like a parent who’s just slipped some Ambien into their kids cereal, I’m enjoying the peace and quiet. Here’s a rundown of my pick of the web from the last seven days.
