Is offline play the solution for time-starved gamers?
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 October 2014, 11:13 am
Lately my wife and I have been enjoying the relatively new Tiny Tower Vegas.  The addition of casino games and theme to the old Tiny Tower formula is mindless fun, and we do like visiting each other’s towers and comparing … Continue reading


Bummer morning
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 October 2014, 10:03 am
I’ve had a lot of good things come my way lately, so don’t mistake this as an out-and-out complaining post.  Just that I’m a little bummed this morning. For starters, I’m pretty sure that my computer’s graphics card has completely … Continue reading


VGM of the Day: “Elinu’s Dance” from TERA
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2014, 1:00 pm
Such a warm, rapturous feeling from this track.  I would definitely splice this into any forest or meadow area in my fantasy MMOs.

Destiny soundtrack now on Amazon
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2014, 7:48 am
For my fellow MMO soundtrack collectors, just a heads up that the Destiny soundtrack is now available to purchase separate from the collector’s edition.  Currently it’s $9 on Amazon MP3.  It has 44 tracks and I’m looking forward to listening … Continue reading


STO: Applejack to the rescue!
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2014, 9:00 am
Leveling in Star Trek Online is so absurdly fast these days with the double XP toggled on that I’m almost to the max level while only being about halfway through all of the episodes.  I was grateful for this since … Continue reading


VGM of the Day: “Smooth” from WildStar
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 September 2014, 2:32 pm
You can’t see me, but I’m standing and saluting this track.  It’s WildStar done 80s style, full-blown synth and everything.  LOVE IT.

(You can follow my playthrough of The Secret World on Bio Break’s projects page!) Something Wicked (investigation mission) This is a pretty neat investigation mission that was incredibly glitchy back when the game first launched.  Anyway, Norma’s second and final … Continue reading

WildStar: Tales from the Farside
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 September 2014, 8:14 am
That’s right: My housing plot now has a giant Lopp party.  It’s very likely the apex of MMO acquisitions for me, as I love it so very, very much.  I mean, how can you not?  I have over a dozen … Continue reading


STO: In which I hate the Defiant
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2014, 9:00 am
It’s time to bring you up to speed on what’s been happening with me in Star Trek Online.  I barely had time to get to know the Black River, my Ambassador-class ship, before I crossed the threshold of captain rank … Continue reading

RIFT: Glad to be back, baby
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 September 2014, 9:53 am
Is there a term for the opposite of buyer’s remorse?  Where you get or do or buy something and are increasingly satisfied with that decision?  That’s kind of how I feel about RIFT as of late. I’m tremendously glad I’ve … Continue reading

(You can follow my playthrough of The Secret World on Bio Break’s projects page!) Elm Street Blues (action mission) Andy!  Who doesn’t love Deputy Andy?  He’s just so loveable, kind of a puppy dog character who’s seen and known about … Continue reading


When life conspires against gaming
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 September 2014, 8:22 am
It’s not been the best week for gaming here at Casa de Syp.  One night I had to go to bed far earlier than normal to catch up on some much-needed sleep.  And last night as it looked as though … Continue reading

WildStar: Wrapping up Whitevale
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 September 2014, 9:00 am
As I previously said, my recent adventures in Whitevale have finally propelled me past my previous high-water mark in the game.  It looks as though I’ve cured my rerolling addiction and am sticking with the Engineer to the glorious end. … Continue reading

The Secret Adventures: Tutorial
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 September 2014, 9:00 am
While I am certainly full on gaming as of late, I’ve begun to keenly miss The Secret World.  Over the past several months, our regular group has dwindled in both size and focus, popping up only to tackle the new … Continue reading
