I dabbled in yet another alpha-state indie sandbox game this week. As you'd expect, the title is rough around the edges. Also as you'd expect, it boasts FFA PvP and the correspondingly godawful community for whom the game's "do whatever you want" mechanics immediately translate to "kill everything ...

I must admit that I'm lazy when it comes to World of Warcraft. I don't mean that I don't research things or read about my classes. I also love to level the slow way without heirlooms. But I really don't like crossing cities, particularly if I don't have flight yet. See where Roblinator is in t...

Believe it or not, grind is an essential part of an MMO and we might be pretty lost without it. Repetitive content is the cornerstone of the MMO genre but it's not all just smacking monsters over the head for hours on end or completing yet another "kill ten rats" quest. The repetitive elements in a...

It won't instill gamers with the same red-faced anger as EA's fizzled plan to offer for-pay weapons in Battlefield: Bad Company; instead, the newly released "Time is Money Pack" for Skate 2 will simply make those who buy it feel varying degrees of guilt, regret and perhaps even fear. That's because...

This week's comic I have decided to do by hand while waiting around for various people and events to catch up to my time line. In other words, the only thing I used my computer for this week was some minor touch ups, framing, straightening, and of course sticking it up here for all of you to razz....

You may have noticed that there has been quite a bit of news about Wrath of the Lich King lately. In that news, there are some very wonderful things in store for those of us with limited pl...

It's one thing to exemplify laziness; it's another to buck the habit just long enough to invent something to keep you idler, longer. Enter Enrico Berruti, an everyday fellow who has created something that almost anyone with a bed could see as useful. His Selfy bed, quite simply, uses a variety of mo...

Even I can see that this one is a little lazy, but hey, maybe someone out there will be looking for a way to more easily send street addresses to their iPhone without actually typing them in. What? That's you? Well then, pardner, you're in luck-- give iPhoneSender a look. It is a Safari bookmarklet ...

Although the Wii had many good games this year, it's clear that some developers noticed the Wii's hype and have put out some unsatisfactory products in an attempt to ride the popularity wave. We're often critical of such games, "tsk, tsking" at them to our hearts' content, but it makes us feel bette...

We know that the Wii has the potential to help people shed pounds, but we wonder how often it actually has. We suppose it's a question of dedication, but still, we're curious -- how many of you have benefited physically from the Wii? We're pretty much as lazy as we ever were, but we want to know a...

While targeting the physically handicapped, there's nothing to prevent your lazy ass from taking home the new touchless keyboard from Actbrise. Well, nothing but $2,573. With the keyboard plugged into your PC, a device worn on the head or other mobile appendage allows the user to navigate the keyb...

The most time-consuming part of any Pokemon game is capturing and strengthening your horde of creatures. To make things worse, some pokemon will only evolve after they've attained a certain level of happiness. An intrepid (lazy, impatient, resourceful, etc.) gamer named Joshua didn't want to wait,...

Elizabeth put a good post up the other day about lazy folks who don't take the time to run back into an instance after a wipe, and this forum post by Eleutheria on EU Earthen Ring points out the other side of instance group laziness: Meeting stone standoffs. Here's how it should work: if there aren'...

While it must be nice to own a home that's completely controlled by your voice, a clap, or a simple remote, getting this stuff up and running isn't always easy, and the INSTEON-compatible RemoteLinc doesn't seen to make things any less complicated. Sure, controlling your garage door, fireplace, kitc...

Months ago, Penny Arcade outlined the dangers of playing the Wii with small, controlled movements -- namely, looking like a total toolbox. As if this wasn't enough warning, the guys at Dog Rodeo have put together a humorous look at just how slothful you can be while still playing a decent game of ...
