You'll Find More Cheer In A Graveyard

by Rainier on Aug. 11, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under News

My drama in CrimeCraft has reached another new low, or high, depending on how you view it. I got banned again earlier today, scored a hat trick, for reasons that are once again beyond comprehension. I am now being accused of having "divulging privileged information about an upcoming patch." I only obtained said information from an article published by Vogster itself on TenTonHammer, which the community manager linked in the CrimeCraft forums and is mentioned as news item in the game's launcher. Priceless ....

On a more upbeat note, we watched a few episodes of the new Covert Affairs TV series, and it's fairly good. Of course, nothing beat the Hell's Kitchen season finale. It was good stuff, and the right choice was made!
