I Intend To Broadcast Until The Day I Die, And Then For A Couple of Days After That

by Rainier on Aug. 10, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

It was surprisingly quiet yesterday. Maybe everybody is on vacation or getting ready for GamesCom next week.

We started watching Covert Affairs, and while it's nothing super, it's better than we expected. Since it's On Demand, we don't need to DVR it and it's free, so we figure we may as well watch it while we can.

The drama in CrimeCraft continues, as I've had to tell a bunch of people why two of their biggest players were banned for shady reasons. So far, the response has been heartening. Most people are baffled, claiming Vogster is overreacting. A response from the VP of Vogster stated that we violated "the spirit of the game/tournament." I'd say that in a game about gangs, crafting drugs, killing rival gangs, and robbery, we actually raised the bar on that spirit.
