Oh, don't you scoff at today's topic. I can hear you, harrumphing with seeming impatience at what you consider to be activities beneath your stature. Perhaps the idea of putting in an honest day's hard work in an MMO is abhorrent to you -- after all, that's why you have servants, right? But there...

You have to love this Monty Python and the Holy Grail Kinect game, even though we all know that Tim the Enchanter had nothing to do with destroying the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog. Maybe someone will add the Holy Hand Grenade as DLC.You can learn more about the game's creation here.

There are movies, music, and literature which are considered classics and are generally accepted as having been seen, heard, or read by everyone at one point or another. Some of these are so accepted as classics that the idea someone is unfamiliar wit...

It's not like I haven't proven a few times that I'm an absolute freak for all things Monty Python. That's why when I saw this video re-make of the classic skit How Not to be Seen a while back, I added it to my favorites for sharing on a future rainy day. (With Moo out for SXSW, that rainy day would...

One of the things that came up last night in a round of "what would you like to see" was the concept for a "comedy" MMO.
