"Women's Studies" Needs Your Help

Greetings, friend of Ningen Manga Productions. I'm writing to ask for your assistance. Don't worry. You don't have to help me move. As you likely know, Women's Studies, NMP's movie about a school run by homicidal feminists, was recently released to DVD. While it has been listed on Netflix, it's currently not available to rent or watch via their "Instant Watch" program. My understanding is that there's a magic number of "saves" the...

StarCraft II Pwnage

As my wife's been in law school the last 2 weeks, I've had a bit of time here and there to load up StarCraft II - when I'm not reading or studying for my MBA, anyway. For some reason I've settled on the Protoss as my primary race. I'm not really sure why, because in the original StarCraft I was primarily a Zerg player. It's a bit strange, anyway. So I've been playing a lot of league matches, trying to play random and get some good teams together...

Open Salon Problem

Code 300: User 2751 does not exist   My blog at Open Salon apparently has been eliminated even though they never sent me any emails about any problems and they have failed to respond to my emails about the problem.   Guess I better avoid have anything to do with Salon in the future.  

APB - A Third Look/Aftermath

As if I didn't talk about this game enough already.  With the recent news of RTW dwindling down from a team of hard working people to a small group of clueless employees no doubt thinking just what the @#$! went wrong, it's definitely no surprise people are in a stir.  I sure am, because I'm tired of writing negative thoughts on an otherwise great game.  Despite the doubt, RealTime Worlds IS working on the game, make no mistake...

OMGN Release Notes: 4.1.3

Just a quick release here before Laura and I head on our vacation to Hawaii for a week! Session Ping Websites always have session timeouts for logins and OMGN is no exception. Unfortunately, as we've discovered in the administrative side of the site, you can work for so long on an article that your session will timeout before you hit submit. Then when you hit submit... All is lost. We've rolled out a "session ping" feature that when editing...

Beast

So let's see here... Over 6 years ago I built my last gaming rig. I never really named it. It was my primary Windows machine at the time. Could have been longer than 6 years, really. I don't remember. I know I upgraded it a little about 4 years ago or so, and I added a Blu-Ray burner about 7-8 months ago. Unfortunately, that's all that really happened with that box. I got my HP Pavilion laptop about 4 1/2 years ago and it became my primary...

Journalists use this kind of technology too to track changes to their articles. Well, today we're rolling out this kind of technology for use administratively and in your blog posts! Compare Differences Support for aforementioned difference engine!...

OMGN Release Notes: 4.1.1

Got some release notes for our 4.1.1 release. This actually released on July 26th! I apologize for the delayed write-up.

The Strange Limbo of GameRifts

Back in the day, GameRifts at http://www.gamerifts.com/ was the premiere website for Massively Multiplayer Online Games.  Then, all of a sudden, in late 2005 it ceased updating and it has since become a link spam center.  Just why it has never been updated or cleaned up is a complete mystery. The shame of it all is that there are still a great many articles on the website that are well worth your while.   Hopefully, Div...

My review breakdowns.

Everyone at OMGN reviews games differently.  I break it down at the end, and give an average rating based on all the different elements, as well as mention misceallenous tidbits that weren't mentioned earlier.  So if anyone who wants to know how I do mine, here you go. Presentation How the game presents itself in terms of style, or how well on target the end product is as it was advertised to be.  Use of cutscenes, liscensing,...
