Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!Well, this one is going to be odd!  We had our first snow yesterday, it's cold out there, the coronavirus is still looming, and Salem is closed for Halloween.  I guess it's going to be quiet today...Google's doodle this year is pretty fun.  You play a browser game as a little black cat who tries to rid the land of ghosts, only to inadvertently cast them off to sea. So,

Star Trek Online 9 years

It's been a while since the actual anniversary date of STO, but it's been busy, so this draft has been sitting in my...drafts...for a while.  This year Cryptic broke up the pieces of the infographic and released them a piece at a time on twitter, before putting the entire thing up on their website at the end.  I am not surprised that Tactical captains are first in the list, and I am also

Winter Wonderland is here!

One of my favorite seasonal STO events is here: Q's winter wonderland - where mischievous Q transports you to a...ermmm...winter wonderland...complete with winter events, winter clothing, and a new limited edition ship that you can claim.The Kramp'IhrThis year's addition to the game is the Kramp'Ihr - melding human winter-time monsters like the Krampus with Klingon undead (the Fekh'Ihr).  It

Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow | Done

Continuing with my exploration of "the classics" (of two console generations ago), I've been playing Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow. The game originally came out for the original xbox, and I've been playing it on backward compatibility.  I didn't really notice any hickups in the single player game.   The title comes from the main bad guy of the series, Sadono, who calls his sleeper cells

Magickarp jump...

From last week's gamercat, a commentary on the stupid game (on mobile) of Magickarp jump... (yes, it's stupid - as stupid as Office Space: Idle Profits)

A temporal captain!

Finally! I've now become an old school temporal captain ;-)About five years ago when I first started playing Star Trek online what I really wanted was to fly around in a Wells Class temporal science vessel (and sport the 29th century uniform).  The problem?  The Wells was a lockbox ship, and before I knew the odds of getting one I ended up opening a whole lot of temporal lockboxes with nothing

Xbox year-in-review, now with a crest!

With all of the social media sites doing year-in-review infographics from the data that they've collected from you over the period of the year, I thought I would check out xbox to see what sort of year-in-review they have in store. This year, along with the statistics that they provided me with, I got my own - customized and customizable gamer crest (presumably based on the games that I play).

Nintendo Switch - pretty interesting

Nintendo's new gaming console seems like a mix of mobile and at-home console gaming.  Seems pretty interesting, and it reminds me of the stuff that OQO tried to do with computing. Let's see how it goes :)

Agents of Yesterday official trailer

I was not convinced that I would be starting up a new character for this expansion, but after this trailer I am pumped!  I may just create a new UFP character, do the faction specific missions, and then just use DOFF missions to level up to level 60.  I might even skip most missions that I've done (at least) 4 times already. I guess this character falls into the tertiary category because

Connecting on Miitomo

Seems like I haven't really found many friends and colleagues on Miitomo yet (maybe I am not the right demographic?)  So, if you're reading this, try it out and connect ;-)
