The Blog in Which I Am Not At PAX

So due to starting a new job I wasn't able to get the time off to go to PAX Prime this year, which kind of blows, on the upside I get to save money and get to avoid the 12 hour travel time in order to get to Seattle from Calgary. Sort of on the more rantier side of tonights blog is directed towards forum moderators, I want to make it absolutely clear that this is in no way an attack upon the awesome people that police the GIantbomb boards just a simple observation and my own opinion on how moderators on forums should operate.. So to set the tone for this let me regal you with a tale, I was surfing the boards and due to the sometimes hilarity of the locked topics I was taking a peak at some of them looking at the various reasons for which they were locked when I came across one where the mod had responded in a manner I thought quite harsh for reference I have no idea of the situation surrounding this exact poster. I sent a pm to the mod expressing my doubts in the manner in which he had responded and was replied with the equivalent of "Fuck off it's none of your business" Which it absolutely isn't. I personally take issue with the non-transparency of Mod's decisions across all internet boards, I'm just off the opinion that when questioned any mod should be able to give there reasoning (in the case where it's not extremely obvious) as to why they would lock a certain top. Anyways ending that portion of my rambling. 
 
TLDR for the above section: I don't exactly agree with way some mods operate on forums across the internet 
 
But hey I totally played some video games this week! 
 
 
Guild Wars 2 - I think it's happened, I've finally found an mmo that has kept me engaged for more than ten hours, I honestly don't know what It is about the game that I find so interesting. But it's totally awesome, I'll be putting many more hours into the game and we'll see where it takes me, Expect frequent updates in the blog about my adventures through Tyria. 
 
Sleeping Dog's - So I played and beat this, And it's pretty good I certainly enjoyed my time with it. I haven't done a lot of the side stuff I'm planning on digging into that sometime next week however. 
 
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning - For some reason I decided to pick up both dlc packs for this Teeth of Naros and the other's name has escaped me at this time. That in itself speaks volume for that content, it isn't that great, but I returned to that game for the combat which I found exceedingly awesome! 
 
 
And so ends another rambling wall of text, In other entertainment I've been reading the Guild Wars 2 guidebook er because I can. It's a fairly good read, has some information about the world which I had no prior experience of until Guild Wars 2. Been watching The Glades as well, and that's a crime drama, it's okay. 
 
Anyways If you've made it this far I congratulate you! And bestow upon you one (1) internet cookie (^.^)>(::) 
 
But seriously thanks for reading, your all awesome people
