Too Little Time
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 February 2015, 1:41 pm
A lot has been going on and keeping me busy, so of course something had to give. In my case it was gaming and updating this site. I’m hoping things are under control now, but we’ll just have to see. With the announcement of a Guild Wars 2 expansion on the horizon excitement started to … Continue reading Too Little Time

My Thoughts on Joystiq & Massively
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 January 2015, 2:13 pm
With the recent news that Joystiq is merging into Engadget and Massively is on the way out, I’ve had a lot of thoughts cross my mind. Now, let me get some things straight first. I’ve never written for Massively before but I do know a good number of people who have worked for them. I … Continue reading My Thoughts on Joystiq & Massively

Stranded Deep
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 January 2015, 4:12 am
As I mentioned last week, I really enjoy survival games. A friend pointed out ‘stranded deep’ to me last week, which is available on steam greenlight. The basics of the game are simple. You start out on an airplane and that’s where you’ll do a brief tutorial. You make a martini by dragging items around … Continue reading Stranded Deep

What do you Do if your Class isn’t Fun Anymore?
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 January 2015, 3:30 am
Back when I first started playing EverQuest, I only had one character. I adored my enchanter, and never dreamed that I would want to play anything else. In EverQuest 2, I also started out with one character. Eventually as time ran on and I started raiding, the needs of my raid guild came first, and … Continue reading What do you Do if your Class isn’t Fun Anymore?

New Game Thursday – H1Z1
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 January 2015, 11:30 am
I am not really a fan of zombie games. No big surprise there. I don’t enjoy horror, or blood or killing. Why on earth did I find myself playing H1Z1? Well, first of all the game came as a gift, and that always helps. Second of all, I do really enjoy survival games, exploration, and … Continue reading New Game Thursday – H1Z1

New Game Thursday – Sakura Spirit
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 January 2015, 11:15 am
I love visual novel games, and so when Steam put their anime sale up I was excited to see quite a few from my wishlist marked down in price. I picked up Sakura Spirit without doing much research into it, which is something I now wish I had of done. Yes, the game is ‘adult’ … Continue reading New Game Thursday – Sakura Spirit

More Ancient Warfare in Minecraft, and FFXIV for the PS4
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 January 2015, 10:58 am
After playing with the basics of ancient warfare yesterday, I decided to add a bit more to it. I set up a wheat farm, a cow farm, and a courier to pick up the items at all of the farms (ink sac, fish, and wheat) and then deposit them into containers. For some reason my … Continue reading More Ancient Warfare in Minecraft, and FFXIV for the PS4

Ancient Warfare – Minecraft Mods
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 January 2015, 10:45 am
I decided to play around with a bit of Ancient Warfare on my home server. I’m still using IceHenge as a mod pack, and it’s still providing hours of enjoyment. I’ve also still barely even touched on most of the mods. Ancient Warfare lets you create (very delicate) NPC to do most of your basic … Continue reading Ancient Warfare – Minecraft Mods

The Sims 4 – Outdoor Retreat(soon)
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 January 2015, 11:54 am
Big news has been coming out about Sims 4 this week. Well, big news for me at least. A release date was set for Outdoor Retreat, which is basically a “stuff” package if you’re familiar with previous sims expansions, but here it’s called a “game pack” that is going to release next week. An exact … Continue reading The Sims 4 – Outdoor Retreat(soon)

New Game Thursday – Child of Light
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 January 2015, 12:07 pm
For Christmas my cousin got me this steam game, and I have to say I was completely surprised (pleasantly so. Child of Light is a Ubisoft Montreal game, and with it you play the part of Aurora, a young girl who figures herself to be in a dream world, taken from her father. The game … Continue reading New Game Thursday – Child of Light

Those Lazy Minecraft Days
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 January 2015, 7:10 am
The urge to play Minecraft came once again (as it does every few weeks) and I decided to check out what was new with Icehenge, which I run through Technic. The technic launcher has been completely revamped, and on top … Continue reading

Does Any Game Truly Welcome you Back?
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 January 2015, 4:06 am
I have been meaning to play a little FFXIV for some time now, but with work, holidays, and a zillion other little excuses cropping up I just had not found the motivation to download the client (again) and log in … Continue reading

New Year, New Game – Salt
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 January 2015, 6:25 am
I had not heard of Salt before, but a friend recommended it to me thinking it may be something I was interested in (knowing my love of sandbox games) and so I decided to try it out. I know there’s … Continue reading

Gaming in 2015
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 December 2014, 10:40 am
I’m taking some inspiration from Sypster over at BioBreak, and writing about what I’d like my goals to be for gaming in 2015. As he says, lists constantly change, so I don’t expect this to be set in stone in … Continue reading

A Year in Review
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 December 2014, 6:56 pm
Of course Jetpack once again provided some neat-o information about my site for the year in review. It’s not that exciting, but I thought I’d share it with everyone none the less. You can find it located here, but for … Continue reading

Trying to Embrace Dailies
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 December 2014, 11:55 am
I dislike dailies. They make me feel obligated to log in for a bunch of chores that are not much fun and by the time I’m done them it’s usually time to log off. Lately I’ve been trying to embrace … Continue reading

Lets slay a Forest Giant
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 December 2014, 8:43 am
I thought I had logged in too late to participate in the Forest Giant slaying on Xanadu but it turns out I was right on time. The creature had been holed up under ground and locked away from the public … Continue reading

Molten Core Completed
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 December 2014, 5:50 am
I wanted to run Molten Core (the anniversary version) at least once to get the 640 ilevel helm and the corehound mount. I had heard that it was a soul sucking raid with no loot from any of the numerous … Continue reading

Recent Sims 4 Updates
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 December 2014, 4:38 am
There have been a handful of great updates for the Sims 4 lately, and of course I had to check them out. Unfortunately one of the biggest problems I have (my screen going black every time I enter design mode … Continue reading

Xanadu Impalong
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 December 2014, 3:37 am
Once or twice a year, depending on the server, a player run event takes place called an “impalong”. Started years ago, this event brings together wurmians of all walks of life, for games, contests, community, and of course, improving items. … Continue reading

Trials with Landmark Combat
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 December 2014, 3:31 am
Players in Landmark are able to do some incredible things, but without a combat system (aside from pvp) the game didn’t really feel like a ‘game’. After a 48 hour downtime, there are now creatures added, so I decided to … Continue reading

Challenge Servers
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 December 2014, 7:08 am
Wurm Online is an interesting game. Every year or so a new ‘thing’ happens that causes a brief influx of characters. This is typically another server, and this year was no different except that the rules on the new server … Continue reading

Do you Feel Bad when you Don’t Feel Like Gaming?
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 December 2014, 4:48 am
Lately I just haven’t felt like playing an MMO. While I really enjoy WoD, I dislike that the first hour or so of every play session is spent working on my garrison. By the time I’m done with them I … Continue reading

The Legacy Family Continues (Alonzo Does Not)
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 December 2014, 3:45 am
Ah, my poor neglected legacy family. With rumors of a careers update just around the corner, I decided it was well past time I returned to the Sims 4 and see how everyone was doing. When we last visited, the … Continue reading

Content Locked Behind Levels?
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 December 2014, 6:33 am
In games (especially in MMOs with linear progression) I expect that certain content will be ‘locked’ behind levels. Things like raid content especially. Then there are games that seem to lock everything behind obtaining some magical number, and those games … Continue reading
