Video Game Review Wizard 101


Wizard101 turns into a passable MMO after level 7, it is a bit baby-ish when you start it. They are obviously trying to attract a diverse membership audience.  Yet it picks up speed.  It goes from Harry Potter to more Lord of the Rings by the upper levels. So far I am mainly Morgan Raven Shade the Necromancer, if you play add me to friends. It is good fun for people who like Monty Python and WoW style games with pets, dragon mounts, fishing and the Nights That Say Ni Guild. It is pretty funny.  One advantage it has over World of Warcraft (WoW for short) is that if you die you teleport back to town and play mini games to advance, fish in town to heal, and train your pet right in town.  Healing downtime has more money, and adventure.  Also you have a SIMS style house, so there is more diversion from the monster grind. Meanwhile you chat with others all day.  All in a game that takes up far less system requirements compared to WoW.   I am battling Dr. Who in a TARDIS this week.  One problem is it says it is “free to play”  yet tempts you with purchases in the log in screen.  I could see easily how “free” could get pricey fast.  Not too much of a bad side for a game with so much going on in terms of entertainment.

Some teachers.

Yea some teachers can make math seem like adding cupcakes and the human soul.

More on small venue prices.

Dear concert promoters, $15 and over fees are stadium-rock prices. Not small venue underground band prices students cannot afford FYI. I have an advertisement from 2004 when Voltaire was on tour with Iris, the show cost $6 in Austin.  This week’s show cost 18 bucks!  Twice the price, and more!  Another weekend in for me. Like CNET says in this poll.


“ Let’s face it: Musicians’ income from CDs and downloads is on the wane, so they have to make a buck where they can. Ticket prices for local venues in New York City can be pretty steep. Small jazz clubs can easily run $30, plus a two-drink minimum. “

More on Check Me.

Checking email before night school sucks up all my time.  Winter break seems to have flown by at break neck speed this year.  I am taking math classes next semester, so there is no cutting corners on knowing that information.

More on Prove You Have a Brain.

There are many ironies to going to college, but it is still one of the few ways to prove you have a brain. So many customer service jobs have you doing tasks a small monkey could do, and it is hard to prove you have mental capacity.  It is not enough to have education these days, and if the credits get old many schools will not take them as transfer credit.  Time to get some new courses on my college schedule for next semester; it is not yet full for the New Year.  Yet there are dark sides to the paperwork that has sprung up around modern education.  Here are some of the top jokes for the school year.

More on No-Out

My sister Lily Duran-Wright is in town for the weekend, and there is freezing ice rain going on.  No going out dancing for me this weekend.

More on Tweet On.

Time for more vacation tweets. Get my tweet on before school starts I say.

More on Rabid piranha fish.

No more going out for me for a while.  Going back to school this next week will eat all my time and money like a pack of rabid piranha fish. It was good to get out and about after last semester’s stress fest.  Yet night life is a good thing to only do in moderation.

More on All A Grades.

Made all As in my college classes last semester!  I just got notice it was all As, woot!  I knew in the last class it was an A, but I just re-checked it online, and it was ALL A grades.  Happy day!  I had to do a lot of extra credit for that last grade, I screwed up on some of the reading tests at the start of the semester when I was sick for a few days.
