Current Quests – Week of 06/29/08

Greetings, people. No time for small talk this week, I’m just here to get in, whack the guy whom I set up with a fake date through the internet because he refused to pay Brucie his money who in turn proposed to me this ridiculously circuitous plan for revenge, and get out. Now, let’s get down to brass tacks. Continue reading ‘Current Quests – Week of 06/29/08’ »

Current Quests – Week of 06/22/08

It’s that time of the week again! It’s also summer, so it’s time for us to work a bit harder to help keep you all entertained over your vacations. Unfortunately, somebody seems to have replaced half of our staff with cardboard boxes… Continue reading ‘Current Quests – Week of 06/22/08’ »

Current Quests – Week of 06/08/08

Hello, good chums and chumettes.  Another week has come and gone, and once again we try to forstall the inevitable return to work with an edition of Current Quests.  So what are we all up to this week?  Let me break it down for you.

Poll, Yay

Good evening everyone ^^.

Summer’s just around the corner, and we thought this would be a good time to start getting ready for the increased free time that many of us will have to devote to the site. In addition to finishing up a gazillion reviews of FES, we’d like to hang out a little bit more and establish more of a community here, especially since our readership seems to keep going up by a lot each month. We have comments, but we know those aren’t always the best place for that sort of thing. For now, we’ve put up a poll on the sidebar to your right. If participation is good and/or there’s a lot of support for it, we can start bringing out some forums as summer draws near.

Current Quests – Week of 5/25/08

Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to draw your attention to the center ring, wherein may be found the amazing antics of Horton, the dancing elephant! Well, technically not an elephant. Well, not really a dance, per se. Tell you what… We’ll do this week’s Current Quests, while you watch the parakeet with the hip injury. Continue reading ‘Current Quests – Week of 5/25/08’ »

Current Quests – Week of 05/18/08

Tidings, folks. We’re back with another installment of “That Thing We Do Every Sunday”. Prepare to be astounded and amazed as no less than five – count ’em, five! – staffers have fallen under the insidious snare of Persona 3: FES. Not me, however… not yet, although I confess it did look tempting as I passed by at the store. More on that later.

Current Quests – Week of 5/11/08

Breaking news: The number of female staffers at Random NPC has doubled! Yes, doubled! Which brings the number to a grand total of… drum roll please… two! As per tradition, I, the newest addition, will be bringing you this week’s Current Quests, wherein the staff continues to have a morbid interest in games about death and/or the end of the world. Good times!

Current Quests – Week of 5/04/08

Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen, to another edition of Current Quests, the weekly column that investigates the deep, philosophical question of, “So what’re you doing?” This week, a good whack of the staff (myself included) have been devoured by Persona 3 FES, and are currently attempting to wrest their way back out of Tartarus. With the aid of an adorable mechanical girl and a dog with a knife clenched firmly in its jaw, we present to you the spoils of our efforts. Continue reading ‘Current Quests – Week of 5/04/08’ »

Redesign: Electric Dusk

When we started this site back in August, we hinted at wanting to redesign the basic blog style to add some neat features. Well, it took a little longer than we’d wanted it to, but we managed to implement a lot of neat features and improve our graphics. It should be more friendly to those of you who have a high resolution and/or widescreen monitor now too. Continue reading ‘Redesign: Electric Dusk’ »

Current Quests – Week of 04/27/08

Hello again everybody ^^. I suppose that it should be fairly obvious what most of us have been working on this week from the looks of the site, but we’ve managed to get in some gaming on the side as well. Continue reading ‘Current Quests – Week of 04/27/08’ »

Current Quests – Week of 04/20/08

Hi, everybody!  Just a quick lil’ update since I’m kind of buzzed after returning from a friend’s wedding and I’m sort of getting to this at the last minute, but that’s okay.  Everybody gather ’round and let’s take a look at what our beloved staffers are up to this week!

Current Quests – Week of 4/13/08

I find myself in quite a jaunty mood today. After watching the Penguins kick around the Senators in both their playoff games thus far, as well as reading this hilarious article on why the Pirates will continue to suck this year, I am primed to tackle our weekly article here. Onward!

Current Quests – Week of 04/06/08

Current Quests – Week of 03/30/08

I have to say, the last couple weeks have brought some interesting announcements to the world of role-playing games. Persona 4? A completely new IP from Square Enix? A new Valkyrie Profile game? And here I thought Christmas was in December. At any rate, it’s Sunday, which means it’s time for Current Quests! Continue reading ‘Current Quests – Week of 03/30/08’ »

Site Outage Friday, March 28 – Sunday March 30

Greetings, readers of RandomNPC.com.

I’m writing to warn you that beginning Friday, March 28 and lasting for a period of up to 48 hours, RandomNPC.com will be temporarily unavailable as our hosting service moves us (among others) to bigger and better web accommodations. The service has stated that it’s possible that it won’t take as long as 48 hours to get us moved and back up, and should it not we’ll be back up before Sunday of course, but otherwise, we’ll be down for two days.

We hope this causes no inconvenience for you, but after the move you should see the responsiveness of the site overall improve.

Thank you, and Happy Gaming!

Current Quests – Week of 03/16/2008

This edition of Current Quests is brought to you by Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which has slightly taken over my life of late, as it has others I know. Who doesn’t like fulfilling the childhood dream of finding out “who would win in a fight?” Mario Vs. Sonic? “Real” Link Vs. Toon Link? Jigglypuff Vs. An Army of Mutant Cyborgs? Ok, I made that last one up.
