I don't know about you, but when I pick my mounts, I like to pick something that can manage depth perception. Reader Paul may be keen on this mount, but all I can think of is that his character's probably being led into a lot of bottomless pits, cacti, and stone walls. But who needs practicality w...

Despite -- or more accurately, because of -- my love for video games, I would never want to work in the games industry as a developer or what have you.

When life hands you lemons, you build a new life. Out of lemons.

Character select and creation music has always fascinated me. OK, maybe not fascinated; it's interested me.
