The above link is my Flipboard magazine -- a currated collection of articles, tweets, even videos about console gaming, MMOs & DragonCon.  Over 2000 viewers and growing.


History: This blog is the third incarnation, and started as a paper RPG & desktop gaming blog.  After starting the MMO City of Heroes days after its launch in 2004,  It developed into one dedicated to that MMO, as it remained for nearly eight years. On November 30, 2012 that MMO was shut down by the company NCSoft despite an outpouring of fan support and community outrage.  Starting In December 2012, I'm going to be opening up the focus of the blog to cover ANYTHING gaming I'm playing, be it PC, XBox 360, iPad, Dragon*Con, etc.

That being said, their will be images from various games posted on this blog.  No claim here is made to the games, and no intent to infringe on any copyrights are inferred.   Copyrights are property of the respective companies.

Golden Age Festival 2012

Put on every year, this was the Seventh annual festival by the Gods of the Golden Age group, and covered by THE CAPE Radio with Swing / Big Band music.  Plenty of creative costumes , concepts, were on display throughout the evening.  Having to hold it in Talos caused a second Talos Island zone to spawn.  There was a lot of trouble for late comers to get into the appropriate zone.  I ended up attending solely as Lord Infinitum.   I had attended as several characters in previous years -- but given the zone change, it was not going to be risked.

I tried the first Golden Age Costume contest and lost.  I did take first in the Silver Age contest.  I ended up making a last minute bind for my battlecry that took third.   I tried in the Bio and Trivia contests both without placing.

The crowds were fairly big with lots of people dropping in.  Including NCSOFT Hit Streak, who I believe took the role of a judge for one of the last contests.   The Leader of Lord's group, Original Justice is seen here conversing with Gold Falcon, leader of the Gods of the Golden Age.

There were plenty of strange fateful encounters....

Seen below, Proud Citizen dances with Pinup Girl...

There was time to get in some supergroup team shots... since everyone was together -- Card Master, Sensational Woman, and Kid Uppercut seen below...

One striking toon -- Hero 2 , was there late in the evening...

And some group shots were taken toward the end -- I would expect them to be seen on the Forums, if not the COH Web page...


It was an eventful FUN event.  If you missed it, there is always next year...
