Today was my last day in the Inner Sphere. I finally uninstalled MWO.



I would love to bore you with all the details, but I'm just too damn tired. I spent the day playing farewell games with the friends I made over the past year, then slaved away all night at work. I'm bushed. If you are super interested, I did write up the typical "I'm quitting in a huff" post on the official forums you can check out (if it hasn't been deleted again by the time you read this).

I'll write up a postmortem sometime this week about the it and why MWO should be used as cautionary tale for the upcoming generation of F2P and microtransaction based games. It's a road that can turn very dark very quickly.

For now though, let me direct you to, what I've found, one of the most interesting corners of the internet. Alex Wolfe's Flying Circus is a ongoing visual blog detailing the past few months of MWO's life (read: miserably prolonged death). Alex is a longtime player and friend of mine who's art you've probably seen once or twice in my caps. His artistic interpretations of the ongoing comedy of tragedy that MWO turned into are always amusing, occasionally sad, and consistently the one true source of joy I've derived from MWO.

On the bright side, NO MORE CAPS ABOUT MECHWARRIOR! Maybe I can actually talk about fun games now!


- If only there was another game about big stompy robots coming out in the near future... oh wait.

Oh yeah, two things As Smurfee mentioned yesterday, the Recap team is doing a round-up post of the best blogs of the year. If you've written something you're particularly proud of, or read something that you think deserves some props, send us your suggestions!

Also, for the first time in AGES the FapCast team is getting together to record an episode tomorrow! If you have any questions to ask or comments to make, now is the time to send them in, who knows when the next episode will be!

* - KD Alpha makes a rare trip to the Cblogs with an excellent dissection of SFIV. As a fellow player who spent a lot of time coming to grips with SFIV's rather "unique" features, this blog was some chicken soup for the soul for the fighter who walked out of the ring.

* - More great fighting game blogging today. Perfidious Sinn adds Soul Calibur II HD to the list of titles covered in his series.

* - It's odd how many of us grew up hiding our gaming hobbies.

A - I'm not sure what I took away from this blog, other than another reminder that I NEED to play Doki Doki Universe.

A - An interesting look at the Visual Novel genre. And here I thought it was all just tentacles and schoolgirls...

A - I love oldschool Nintendo marketing. I still have a VHS demoing Donkey Kong Country - with a snippet of Killer Instinct for the ULTRA 64 teased at the end kicking around somewhere.

C - How SeymourDuncan got his groove back. Good stuff man, I gotta get back on the jogging tip too.

C - DustinThomas is getting his groove back too! All these grooves Dtoid! I can't handle grooves like this, what are you doing to me!?

N - Some giant downloads for Final Fantasy. Yeesh.

T - If you didn't know by now, The Walking Dead is pretty depressing.

T - BlinkingPixels gives us his top 5 for the year.

M - Some music and translated lyrics from Drakengard 3, neat.

? - I know when I'm deep into a game, nothing beats... sucking on a bag of soup?

C - Took me a second read to get what this blog was about. Never a great sign.

L - These is a better world beyond this one, forever out of reach.

L - Life is tough when your main job experience involves shooting hundreds of people in the face. Not exactly a winning bullet point on an application to Best Buy.
