Discovered as a young 'Squatchling in a Pacific Northwest woodland area in the mid-70's, Fatsquatch was soon domesticated and introduced to the fledgling arcade scene, where he became addicted to the magical sights and sounds of gaming. As years passed, his addiction only worsened, and eventually lead to his desire to write about all things gaming from a veteran point-of-view. Hence, Fatsquatch created The Jaded Gamer in 2001, and set about leading it into permanent obscurity.

The Cabin in the Woods


I have many reasons as to why The Secret World is so great, but one of them is the geek-culture references you’ll stumble upon while adventuring through the game’s incredibly interesting world.  Take for example the following establishment, located in a demon and undead inhabited patch of woods known as the “Ash Forest”:

Evil Dead cabin in The Secret World

Hmmm…doesn’t this place look familiar?

YES!  A cabin extremely reminiscent of the one in Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead films…in the “ASH Forest”…surrounded by the undead…with a chainsaw lodged in the door frame:

A chainsaw? I wonder who this could possibly belong too?

The Secret World Profiles


I guess Funcom secretly added them, ’cause I only discovered today that groovy character profile pages have recently been added to the TSW site:


That’s my character, but the picture on that page (under “Deck Completion”) is just some generic placeholder, NOT what my toon actually looks like.  Ugh.

The Secret WIN


I always try to keep my enthusiasm in-check during the honeymoon phase with a new MMO, and I also try to refrain from working too “blue” when writing for the site, but I fucking love The Secret World(Henceforth referred to as TSW.)

The Secret World


In case you’ve missed it, FunCom’s new MMO, The Secret World, has officially launched.  The game has flown under the radar a bit, but I’ve really been looking forward to it, as it’s FunCom’s attempt at producing an MMO that isn’t another copy of World of Warcraft.  (And it’s not based around high-fantasy — mega-yay!)

I’ve been downloading the 14.4GB client for a few hours now, so I obviously haven’t played it yet, but I’ve read many good things about it.  From the feedback I’ve seen, it seems like FunCom pulled off something special here, and even though I’m really hoping that’s the case, I’m trying to keep my expectations low.  (I’ve been burned too many times before on MMOs to be much of a “glass half full” kind of guy.)

Send it Back to Hell



Fuck Diablo III and its Real Money Auction House (RMAH)I have been meaning to write about my abandonment of Diablo III for a couple weeks now, but have been so irritated by the state of the game, that even the opportunity to bitch about it has been a turn-off.

But anyways…
