Sign if you want LAN

I don't think Blizzard gives a damn but ...

100,00 people have signed a petition saying they are really upset about the LAN-less option for Starcraft2.

Let's see if they care. I can see someone at Activision going 'Pfft!'

Don't get your hopes up.

More BSG

Well, well, well.

Looks like there might be a BSG movie, directed by Bryan Singer too.


Universal Pictures has confirmed blog speculation that Bryan Singer, director of Valkyrie, will take on directing and producing duties for a BSG movie.

I still have to watch the last season of BSG. Gaar!

Do you want to date my avatar

Alright people, the music video for The Guild is out!

The video is directed by Jed Whedon ... I am having a de ja vu moment. I've mentioned this before, haven't I?

Well, at least I can embed the video this time.

You can buy the song from iTunes. Go on, buy it and support the good gaming folk!

Season 3 is out on Aug 25th!

Legend of Neil and The Guild update

It's been a while since I blogged about anything. Or linked to anything for that matter.

I blame it on Evil Genius and Silent Hill. *mutter* Die, Dollie, die!

Been meaning to update blog so let's see what I've been reading.

I am gonna bundle these two news together since they are kinda related.


I watched Ep 2 of season 1 and it's worth a watch.

It's good fun for gamers who are familiar with the NES Zelda game.

I remember how much trouble I had finding that stupid blue candle.

That's when I drew my own map, aah bonus points there!

Anyway, check it out at LoN website.

The Guild

Which segues nicely into news about The Guild.

They released a fun little music video called "Do you want to date my avatar?"

The song was directed by Jed Whedon and co-written by him and Felicia Day.

It's quirky, it's fun and the part where the two guys rap is hilarious.

It is currently available on Xbox Live video marketplace.

Well, starting from Monday, the 17th of August, it will be available all over the net. Probably from The Guild's website.

You'll see.

I am pretty sure they also gave the date for the release of the third season of The Guild. Or was it the net-wide release of the song?

Guess this means I have to go check it again.

Remember the Tryweryn

Graffiti in Wales was something I read about quite a bit today.

I have an interest in graffiti art (specifically relating to works like Banksy) and this one, though not as creatively ground-breaking, still reached out to me.

It's about a graffiti inscription in Wales and it describes the historic significance of this particular work.

Read about the Cofiwch Dryweryn.

Pratchett shares his thoughts

I saw him on BBC this morning. It was about this same topic - Assisted Death.

I must say, he did a very good job presenting his point of view. But then again, this is Mr. Pratchett. :)

Quote from The Telegraph:

"There needs to be, for the safety of all concerned, some kind of gentle tribunal, to make certain that requests for assisted death are bona fide and not perhaps due to gentle persuasion," he said.
