Doing My Dailies: Why I Quit WoW And Started Working Out

I quit World of Warcraft in June of 2009. I quit hard. I donated my assets to the guild bank and deleted all of my characters. I didn't want to leave the door open to come back. I wanted to burn it down and salt the earth.

Why? Well, that's a bit complicated.

Uncharted, One Chance, and Cheating

I don't have much more to say about Uncharted 2, as it turns out, because I didn't get through much more of it before giving up and sending it back to GameFly. I'm therefore not qualified to review it, but I'll tell you that the reason I sent it back was because I disliked (a) the combat (b) the parkour (c) the artifact-hunting, which leaves very very little to enjoy. All that remains is the game's cinematic components, the dialog and characterization and set-pieces. And there's the other problem: Uncharted 2 is, even more than its predecessor, far too movie-like.
