Anyone not familiar with the video game world is probably wondering what the heck that title means.

Does this help at all?

Yep, it's a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game. And it's a ton of fun, at least for a short time.

For a long time, World of Warcraft (WOW) has been the king of MMOs. But just recently, Square Enix released Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn, which has a lot of the same mechanics from WOW but updates it with character art that's actually realistic and well done. Compare this:

To this:

It's surprising what a different aesthetics can make. I wouldn't mind that guy on a book cover!

Anyway, I have a Mi'quote on the Zalera Server. I don't play too often, but so far my questing has gone well.

Anyone else out there play MMOs? :D

New Release: First Mission!

Today, First Mission, the third book in the Enforcer's series, is available!

Check it out!

Available here!

  Kenneth and Thorn have become Enforcers, those who keep the peace, monitor major societal changes, and if necessary, hunt down criminals. Luckily, their first mission seems easy. They must explore a new alchemy school, meet with the governor of the local village, and determine if the school’s presence has upset the local population of people who cannot use magic at all. As a talentless himself, Thorn especially is concerned. He knows the inequality the talentless face in a world ruled by mages, and he is anxious to see how he will fare as an Enforcer.

    When they arrive, the governor is friendly enough. But as Kenneth and Thorn begin to explore the school and surrounding village, they find signs of something far more serious than simple friction between the talentless and the magi. Students at the alchemy school displays feats of magical strength far beyond what Kenneth has seen before, and Thorn finds out that talentless people are disappearing. They set out to figure out what is going on—but run into problems when they meet an old enemy.

Robocop remake?

I'm a huge fan of cyborgs in fiction, as one can probably tell from my books Remembrance and The Perils of Forgotten Pain. Affecting memories, and the body, with enhancements is a fascinating subject.

The movie that many associate with cyborgs, other than the Six Million Dollar Man, is Robocop. The 80's version was a violence filled, dark comedy that did a surprisingly good job at touching on themes of humanity with the character of Robocop and how he dealt with his memories of his human life and ultimate rebellion against those that made him. Reminds me of Herman, a little bit, from Perils.

Now, though, they're remaking the movie. I'm not sure whether to be excited or dissapointed.

Here's hoping they do the idea justice.

Fall is here

And with it, cold weather. Time for school to start and summer fun to end--although lots of fun can be had indoors as well ;).

So now the blog will look a bit different. A little more cozy for the colder seasons.
