Hollow Earth


So, now that I’ve actually cleared this backlog of posts, I’d like to (slowly) use this area to talk about more general gaming topics. I’ve gotten into backloggery.com, so I might post updates here and/or give impressions of other games here. Notes from the backlog, or something along those lines. Regardless, this is a reboot! Yes, like Tomb Raider, I am going to make a crappy reboot filled with useless open world mechanics, quick-time events, and occasional gruesome death scenes. PRESS E NOT TO GET A POLE IN YOUR THROAT!

This is a reboot in the sense that this blog will likely change. I’m definitely not using it as a soap box for Uru improvements anymore. The ship has sailed and missed its destination. I still think that, at the time, it was salvagable. But there’s really no point in wasting energy on that when I could waste it elsewhere. I still doubt I will update it regularly (the only reason the last few submissions are regular is because I just pasted my drafts in and hit submit!) or even frequently. Mostly just when I feel like it, as I feel like it, etc.

Also, as it should be clear by now, my other blogs are no longer being updated. Cavern Link was nice for an RP, but can’t really be ported to other games. Cuboid World is long outdated and I really don’t have the stamina to maintain a blow-by-blow recount of my Minecraft adventures anyhow. So it’s just this for now, or perhaps I’ll even make a new blog and leave this. I like the title, though. Either way, enjoy the ride!

Top Ten Ways Cyan Can Get People Interested in Uru

I’m thinking of converting this blog into a kind of Minecraft blog, or maybe starting a third blog. In the mean time here’s another top ten list. The top ten ways Cyan can get people interested in Uru.

10. Replace Yeesha with Justin Bieber.

9. Release the Uru source code. Haha, see? that’s a joke because… oh never mind.

8.  Include a copy of Minecraft with every donation so fans have something to do.

7. Release classified government documents.

6.Replace Zandi with Gabe Newell, no one will know the difference.

5. Promote Rand’s son to be next in line to become Dear Leader.

4. Release an ad making sure people know Rand is not a witch.

3. Announce they’re promoting one of their nutcase fans every month as part of their “Nut of the Month” club.

2. Try setting RAWA on fire.

1. Make the next Uru trailer with the Old Spice Guy. “Hello, ladies.”

Top Ten Things Overhead at Cyan Headquarters

If you haven’t heard already, Uru Live has returned. To lighten up this already-light mood, here’s a David Letterman-style Top Ten list of the top ten things overheard at Cyan HQ.

10. Is the server supposed to make that sound?

9. I wonder if anyone will notice we gave Zandi a new steak.

8. Wait ’till the fans find out we’ve replaced Atrus’ intro speech with a video of a dancing cat!

7. Okay, we opened an Uru server. Now give us back Rand.

6. Seriously, guys, is it supposed to make that noise?

5. I wonder if Ubisoft will notice we Bahro’ed their servers for this.

4. You know what they say, old Uru servers never die, they just link away.

3. Don’t tell anyone we had to get Zandi to play Sutherland.

2. Is vid happy yet?

1. Did anyone remember to feed RAWA?

New Email

Slowly going to begin switching my mail over to Gmail. I won’t post it here. If you’ve got it, just change it from @yahoo.com to @gmail.com. Otherwise, it’s the same. I wish Yahoo would let me forward the mail that comes there automatically, but they want me to pay for it.

New Look

I don’t spend much time looking at my blog, so it’s taken me a while to notice just how ugly it was. This theme makes it easier to find portions of the site.
