Attention nerds!

Yes, we're all nerds. Yes, we're all largely of an age at which we can appreciate the wonderful creation that is Pokémon while simultaneously criticising it for being wholly unrealistic in virtually every single aspect. But now! There is an alternative, in this form of this! That is to say, a text-based role-playing game set in a world in which it's all real, and in which pokemon will bite your face off if you're not careful. It hasn't started yet, or even been confirmed as happening yet, but hopefully it will be as soon as sufficient interest is declared. Mike, friend to all men of this realm, and I, sometime passer-by in this realm, are already on board, so there you go. Celebrity endorsements, or near as dammit. Anyway:

They're not cute. They're not cuddly. They're not pets. They're the real thing.

(Anyone like the tagline? No? Ah well. :p)

Mordor? After the War of the Ring, Mordor gets levelled when Sauron's tower collapses, correct? What then? You've got a vast plain, plenty of empty real estate, just waiting to be filled with hobbit holiday holes, dwarven-made waterslides and Gondor.2. But what really happened there? Anyone got any clue what went on behind the Black Gate with Sauron out of the picture?

Those of you who read Scandinavia and the World may already have seen this, but if not, and for the rest of you, follow the link to something awesome and find out what your country does best. Spoiler: America does serial killers. Make of that what you will, 'greatest country in the world'.

Edit: My favourites are Gabon, Egypt and Denmark. What are yours?

R.I.P. Gary Moore

Guitarist Gary Moore passes away.

Dio last year, Gary Moore this. Damn shame. Perhaps this decade is to be remembered for the deaths of great rock musicians, but man, I hope not.
