I tried to play the Imperial Guard again last night. It takes so long to level up to the powerful armored vehicles with the Imperial Guard, that by the time you’ve produced the first flamethrower or artillery tanks, the opposition has very powerful infantry to overrun both your defenses and vehicles. I was playing Hard … Continue reading
Played over two hours of skirmish with the Imperial Guard forces against the Chaos forces in the Winter Assault add-on to Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War, and the Imperial Guard just gets shredded too easily. Even with powerups, they’re still just fodder for the opposing forces. Maybe I just have to make a lot more … Continue reading

USATODAY.com – Appeals mount on nickname use When I was in college, I saw both the Utes and the Seminoles play. It actually used to be the Stanford Indians, but now they’re the Stanford Cardinal (the color, not the bird), and the mascot has to be the goofiest one in the NCAA – the Stanford … Continue reading

There, I’ve said it. I believe Ian Fishback is a hero. Not only has he served two combat tours for U.S. as a member of the 82nd Airborne in Afghanistan and Iraq, now he’s blowing the top off the torture policies of the current administration.
