Pokemon and the New 3DS
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 August 2014, 11:40 am
It is certainly expected that Nintendo, suffering from its various mis-steps with the Wii U, would tread a careful path with its other current console line, the Nintendo 3DS series.  And that is what it felt like with yesterday’s announcement of the New 3DS line. There were a some comments about the button colors and […]


Civilization – The Glorious People’s Victory over Imperialist Aggression!
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2014, 1:00 pm
All good things must come to an end… and even the dentist will eventually decide he has gotten the last bit of plaque from your gum line with that iron hook and cease his infernal gouging and scraping… and so it was with our game of Civilization V, entering into its 14th week of play. […]


Slammed in Nagrand
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2014, 1:00 pm
After finishing Terokkar Forest last week I was feeling a bit optimistic about the next zone on my Loremater project checklist.  I was headed to Nagrand. I was optimistic for a few reasons.  The first was because Nagrand is a zone that I seem to carry some fondness for in the back of my brain.  […]

The Return of Project: Gorgon
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 August 2014, 12:50 pm
Actually, Project: Gorgon never went away.  About two years ago there was Kickstarter to help fund some of the development.  That was not a success, but the project soldiered on. Porject: Gorgon is back with a new Kickstarter.  This time around Eric Heimberg, the lead developer, is looking for $100,000 so that he and the […]

Weekend Fleet Ops in Delve
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 August 2014, 11:00 am
The “Good Fites” war in Delve continues on, giving us something to do during our summer vacations, such that they are.  As usual, I tend to just sit and do other things until Jabber pops up and tells me it is time for a space fight. Saturday morning seemed to be a rich time for […]

People Aren’t Wearing Enough Hats!
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 August 2014, 11:00 am
Last week Rixx Javix put up a post over at his blog about hats. Specifically his post was about EVE Online avatars that he has adorned with hats over the years, including his own and others. You should go look at that post.  He has done a lot of hats.  EVE Online avatars with hats […]


SOE Live 2014 – What Are You Wishing For?
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 August 2014, 3:00 pm
Currently I am not very invested in any SOE games.  I pay some attention to changes in EverQuest, with occasional glaces towards EverQuest II, based mostly on nostalgia for the “good old days,” but otherwise there isn’t much in their current lineup that thrills me.  Landmark has some potential once it gets closer to being […]


Civilization – The Battle for Yaroslavl
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2014, 1:00 pm
We returned for our twelfth round of this game of Civilization V, which started back in early May.  Joining me this week was Potshot and Loghound, it being Mattman’s turn for a week away. I had a very simple goal for this round.  I wanted to knock out two, or maybe three if we were […]


A Busy Thursday in August for MMOs
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2014, 11:00 am
Here it is Wednesday night and I am wondering what I am going to post about tomorrow.  I have several choices, as tomorrow appears to be a busy day in the MMO world. Blizzard At 9:30am Pacific Time (16:30 UTC) Blizzard is going to do their big announcement for the date for the Warlords of […]

Whither Outland?
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 August 2014, 12:00 pm
After finishing up the 1-60 achievements for my Loremaster project, culminating with the Bloodmyst Isle run, I hit a bit of wall in my effort.  I can be a very goal oriented person, but once the goal has been achieved I sometimes drop right off.  So while I had a lot of fun going through […]


Steam Mistake? Tropico 4 Collectors Bundle for 39 Cents [mistake fixed]
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 August 2014, 1:30 pm
The Tropico 4 Collector’s Bundle for 39 cents… um… I’m in. You could literally sell a couple of trading cards to pick up this bundle. I heard Alikchi spotted this and the word has spread. Addendum: As noted in the comments, somebody at Steam noticed their mistake and the price has been changed.  It was climbing […]


Quote of the Day – Prescience at GDC 2007
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 August 2014, 2:00 pm
…because of wow, and all the dumb money and all the publisher pressure, there’ll be lots of games that shouldn’t have been MMOs but would have been great boxed products. Lots of publishers are pushing for that subscription pie, but they’ll fail. -Rob Pardo,  MMOs Past, Present, and Future Panel at GDC 2007 Back in […]


Warlords of Draenor – Expendables Style
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2014, 1:00 pm
Last Thursday we had the big reveal.  Blizzard had an event where they talked about various aspects of the Warlords of Draenor expansion and gave us the big news that we had all been waiting for, the launch date. And they also showed us the big cinematic trailer.  This focuses on the change in lore.  […]


Tower Watch in Fountain and Delve
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 August 2014, 1:00 pm
It looked like it might be a good week for fights.  The word came down that the rest of the N3 coalition was going to deploy to Delve to join Northern Coalition and help boost their numbers.  NC and Black Legion had also gone out of their way to reinforce a number of CFC towers […]


SOE Live – The Norrathian Front
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 August 2014, 1:00 pm
SOE Live went off this past weekend in Las Vegas and, in my typical hope in the face of reality sort of way, I tuned in to watch several of the live streams with the idea that SOE might have some magic potion that would tempt me back to one of their games… or would […]


Civilization – The Fall of Babylon
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 August 2014, 1:00 pm
The more people smoke herb, the more Babylon fall. -Bob Marley Babylon falling was certainly one of the possible scenarios as we went into the 13th session of our game of Civilization V. This time around Loghound was off at a family event, but Mattman was back from camping, so he joined Potshot and I […]


Two Shy in Terokkar Forest
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 August 2014, 1:00 pm
The chase for the Loremaster title continues in Outland.  Having decided to go through the unfinished zones the hard way, at level with a character new to each zone, it was time to get started.  My rogue, Trianis, ran through some of Hellfire Peninsula in order to gear up a bit and get to level […]


Savior of Blaugust – That Video Game Questionnaire Thing
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2014, 1:00 pm
In which I again prove I am old and grumpy. Blaugust is past the three week point.  You can see all the posts piling up over in our little corner of Anook, with more than 500 submitted at this point.  People are putting in the effort. For somebody like me with a routine,a  pattern, a […]
