Hi, I'm a Wii....

PS3 Vs Nintendo - video powered by Metacafe

This has got to be the funniest Apple commercial ripoff. Simply hilarious!!!

Treenara Mazouk, an introduction

Bonjour! The full name is Treenara Mazouk, Gallente to the core, live free or die! Personality wise, I think most would say that I'm a trustworthy kind of gal, who believes in the good nature of humanity. Though I'll help anyone without thinking about it twice (money always helps though), only a fool would abuse my trust. I never forget a face, especially from someone who tries to double-cross me.

I was born on Intaki, from parents originally from Duripant. Both my parents worked for the Nibaghanashi weapons conglomerate, and had moved to Intaki after being transferred there because of company orders. When mom died, dad sent me back to my grand-parents to complete my education on Duripant. After a tumultuous path, I eventually joined the Federal Naval Academy, where I completed my training as a pilot.

Since then, I've worked for several corporations and even had a run as CEO twice. These days I fly with Phoenix Propulsion Labs (PPL), as part of their military division, Phalanx.

I don't really know what the future holds, for now PPL is home, and I'm having a lot of fun, even though it's a lot of work and demands a lot of mission running.

If your nice, I may tell you a bit more about my adventures. For now, it's time to hit the shower, then go for a drink at Melvouier's, a local pub here on station here in Badivefi. The boos is lousy, but the regulars are a fun bunch.

A la prochaine!

A really cool Eve Online video

The best EVE Online/CCP video I've seen so far. Very well done, great music and with a twist. Wish there were more of these!

EVE Online in the news

The last two weeks have been kind of quiet gaming wise. I took another summer gaming break last week while on vacation and so far I haven't had a chance to login this week. I should be able to get back into the game most likely tonight and with the wife being out tomorrow evening, that should give me a few good hours of play.

I recently came across 2 great news article on EVE, one's a re-review at, and the second is an interview with none other than Nathan Richardsson, aka Oveur, at EuroGamer. The re-review is a wonderful idea and only shows the great editorial skills of the staff. As they stated, MMOs are evolving beasts, and a one-time launch-time review just doesn't cut it for these types of games.

As for the interview with Oveur, it's a great short and to the point article. If you want to know what's happening in the near future with EVE Online, then you should head over and read it. In short, the interviews boils down to:

EVE Online's success is due to:

  • Small Group of Devs
  • Modular Development
What's coming-up in Kali and beyond:
  • Player Contracts
  • Combat Organization
  • Mini-Professions
  • Vista Client
  • Terraforming
  • and let's not forget, World Domination!
The future looks promising!

101 EVE Online links

I've been using blinklist for a few months now, and I've really come to value this social bookmarking site very much. It's simple, intuitive and allows you to discover great sites that I would normally never come across.

So I've been using it to keep track on my EVE Online sites. Some of these are corporation or alliances sites, some are for used as reference, some are blogs, while others are news articles related to EVE Online.

All in all, I've got 101 sites so far. And the list keeps getting bigger.

If you know of other sites you use regularly, which are well done, and kept fairly up-to-date, than please let me know, so I can add them to the list.

Keep blinklisting!
