And Then I Totally Binged on Pokemon…
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 September 2014, 1:00 pm
Raptr sends me a report every Monday telling me how many hours of video games they tracked me playing the previous week.  When yesterday’s report indicated I had played less than two hours in the last week of August, I should have been quite skeptical.  It had me playing an hour and ten minutes with […]


Rome – A Shameful Display
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 September 2014, 1:00 pm
I was not sure we were actually going to get together and play last Friday evening.  It was a holiday weekend.  Nobody had set up a Google event.  And, honestly, I was wondering if the group might want a break after the grand finale of the Civilization V game. But then, a little while before […]


Free Realms Inspired Family MMO Raises Seven Dollars on First Day
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 September 2014, 5:00 pm
The upside for Wonky Seasons, should they be able to carry this first day momentum, is that is that their Kickstarter campaign is trending to raise a grand total of $109. The bad news is that if this trend continues, it will only get them to 0.13% of their $85,000 goal. Okay, I am being […]

Blaugust in Review
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 September 2014, 1:00 pm
As August fades into our collective rear-view mirror, so too does Blaugust, Belghast’s event to drive away the typical August malaise. Fifty blogs set out to post at least once a day for the duration of the month.  Thirty made it to that goal. Like many of the other bloggers, there were bits that pushed […]


August in Review
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 August 2014, 1:30 pm
The Site I took down the MMO Blog RSS feed in the side bar earlier this month.  Bhagpuss had been wondering why he was getting strange ping backs from my blog on his posts a while back.  Then, earlier this month, a couple of other people noted the same thing.  All of them had blogs […]


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.  […]


Quote of the Day – The Machines are Winning
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 August 2014, 3:00 pm
Really more of a Tweet of the day I suppose, but here was CCP Fozzie on the first day of the Hyperion release: On day one, 207 Burner NPCs died, but they killed 1563 capsuleer ships. The machines are winning. #tweetfleet #eveonline #iskwar— CCP Fozzie (@CCP_Fozzie) August 27, 2014 It sounds like the “Burner Missions“introduced […]


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 […]


World of Warcraft – 10 Years 10 Questions
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 August 2014, 2:00 pm
Over at ALT:ernative chat there is a survey request centered around the impending World of Warcraft ten year anniversary.  Since bloggers do it for an audience, I will answer the questions in the form of a blog post (as bloggers were encouraged to do.)  You are encouraged to respond as well.  Please go to the […]


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 […]
