I left my classroom and zigzagged my way trough the herd of loud, pimply teens towards the school’s exit as efficiently as I could like I was doing a speedrun. I was a man on a quest. Once out, I snatched my bike from the rack and raced towards Geekvania, a independent store that, as the name mentioned, sold geek products to geek minded people. I was very much one of those.

I moved these “gems” aside until I found what I was looking for. It was indeed a vrmmorpg game. I’d never seen one in the bin-o-crap before. It was called Mesozoic wars. The cover showed an action shot of a caveman jumping towards a armor clad humanoid reptile while holding a big rock over his head. Surprisingly, I knew nothing about this one, which was rare as I keep myself well informed on everything game
