Out of the Blue

A post on Planet Romero points out that yesterday was the tenth birthday of Spear of Destiny, the Wolfenstein game that was sold in retail stores. The Romero offers a few thoughts about the game, including how the failure to emphasize that it was a Wolfenstein game probably hurt its sales. On another anniversary-related note, this press release and a note on the Ultima Online Website (thanks Ultima Online Deutschland) points out that we are also now coming upon the fifth anniversary of Origin's MMORPG. It's probably due to the several generations of software and hardware updates in between the two games that makes SoD seem older and UO seem newer than that. Anyway, if you feel like celebrating, a little poking around lead me to 3D Gamers' Spear of Destiny Page where you can still download the demo, if you can get the DOS-based program to run (it won't hurt too much to try, it's only a 720 KB download). Likewise, if you want to celebrate UO's anniversary, The Ultima Online Website (thanks Dor-lomin) is now offering the opportunity to purchase pre-advanced characters, allowing you to become a veteran without actually playing (which seems a little messed up, no?).

Well, this is a bit awkward. Forum regular Snide has posted a Bluesnews Paypal Link Petition. This is not how I would have handled getting feedback on this sort of proposal, but since he cared enough to go to the trouble to post it, the least I can do is link it here and take a look at the results.

Play Time: Poke the Penguin (Flash required). Thanks Ant.
Links of the Day: Skydriving on AutoWeek. Thanks Redwood. How to make a Civic do 140 M.P.H.

Man Arrested After 7th Robbery at Same NLR Store. Thanks again r0rschach.

Well I was planning on posting a link to a petition that I'm using to solve an argument between myself and a friend about every sperm being good and not "killer" as she erroneously has been telling people... but now I'd just feel uncreative and like a leech.

So Thanks a Lot Snide!

And I signed the paypal petition too, I've been saying for years that I'd pay(modestly).

So Thanks a Lot Snide!!!!!
