Preparing for Extra-Life
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2014, 6:06 am
It’s less than a week until I go live playing 24 games in 24 hours for extra-life. Raising money for sick kids in need is something that a lot of my gamer friends will be doing over the next few … Continue reading

Decorating? Really?
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2014, 8:52 am
There’s a reason I love sandbox gaming, and it is all about the creativity and relaxation I find in creating. This weekend I learned a little bit more about the mods that are currently active on the minecraft server I’m … Continue reading

Sheep? SHEEP!
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 October 2014, 11:30 am
Ah yes, Wurm Online. No matter how many times I seem to step away from this game, eventually it just draws me back in. Maybe it’s the colder weather and the comforting music the game plays. Maybe it’s the fact … Continue reading

Endless Legend
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 October 2014, 3:02 pm
Endless Legend is a beautiful turn based fantasy strategy game that I was lucky enough to be gifted not too long ago. It’s a lot like civilization – if it were on drugs. There’s so much involved in growing and … Continue reading

Fancy Armour
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 October 2014, 6:43 am
After heading off to Paul’s place to check out his smeltery set up, I went back to my own and adjusted mine a bit. Works like a dream. I didn’t have a lot of gold but I had enough to … Continue reading

Lets Get Married
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 October 2014, 3:50 pm
There’s nothing more romantic than proposing to someone in a bathroom, on the first date, while they’re dressed in a hotdog costume.. or is there? My legacy family is coming along. Jessica Little met up with Alfonzo for a date … Continue reading

Smeltery? SMELTERY!
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 October 2014, 8:54 am
I have a smeltery! It works, too. Well, sort of. I figured out how to make blocks (I made one just for fun) but I have no idea how to make casings or actual things instead of just blocks. For … Continue reading

Diving into Tinkers’ Construct
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 October 2014, 9:04 am
It’s not pretty (yet) but pictured above is the start of my tinkers’ workshop. I decided that if I was ever going to get comfortable with minecraft mods, I would have to actually start taking advantage of them and not … Continue reading

The Greatest Adventures
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 October 2014, 10:21 am
Building things is great fun and I could probably spend hours (and in fact have spent hours) doing it – but there’s more to minecraft than just that. Especially if the server you’re playing on is using mods (which of … Continue reading

No House? No Problem.
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 October 2014, 5:12 am
Even a few weeks into the game, on Naima (my server of choice) finding 16×16 plots, or larger, is still difficult. That being said, I have spotted a LOT of 8×8 plots, so I imagine that with time and a … Continue reading

Old Game, New Fun
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 October 2014, 3:39 am
Turns out that a small group of my friends run a heavily modded Minecraft server, running the IceHenge modpack. Now, all of this sounded like jibberish to me. I have never played Minecraft with any mods before, I had always … Continue reading

Extra-Life Schedule
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 October 2014, 12:47 pm
All times are in PDT and the schedule is subject to change. Start 08:00 – 10:00   Banished 10:00 – 11:00    Divinity: Original Sin 11:00 – 12:00    Fable Anniversary 12:00 – 16:00    ArcheAge 16:00 – 17:00   … Continue reading

Crafting Gear, and Adventure Time
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 October 2014, 6:19 am
I decided to splurge, and made myself a set of level 30 plate armor, along with a new shield and weapon. Crafting is expensive – unless you farm everything yourself, and if you farm everything yourself, it’s lengthy. I rarely … Continue reading

Jury Duty
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 September 2014, 5:49 am
  At level 30 you’ll be presented with a short series of quests from the honor NPC that awards you with the ability to serve on jury duty. Perform this task 5 times and you’ll get a cloak opened up … Continue reading

Sailing on a Clipper
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 September 2014, 11:27 am
Yesterday I took a break from doing trade runs, spent pretty much all of the money I had saved up, and decided to craft a clipper (pictured above). Instead of spending my gilda which I have been painstakingly saving up, … Continue reading

A 16×16 Farm
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2014, 8:48 am
Even though I spent a pretty sum building my first house (it requires 2 stone packs & 1 lumber pack) I decided that the land would be of better use if I had a 16×16 farm, instead of a house. … Continue reading

So You Want to Run Trade Packs
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 September 2014, 5:34 pm
One of the best ways to make money in ArcheAge if you’re not wanting to focus on PvP is to run trade packs. Those who are interested in PvP can make a lot of coin by intercepting trade pack runners … Continue reading

Time for Trade Packs
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 September 2014, 9:18 am
In ArcheAge the economy is mostly player driven. People who like to kill mobs but don’t like to craft can put their goods up on the broker and those who adore crafting will scoop them up and create items with … Continue reading

How Does your Garden Grow
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 September 2014, 8:57 am
The situation with queues has been pretty bad this weekend, I don’t think anyone will deny it. Even as a patron, I had a 3 hour queue on Thursday night, as well as Friday afternoon. By the early morning hours … Continue reading

Into Sharpwind Mines
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 September 2014, 4:12 am
Around level 20 you’ll run into your first dungeon in ArcheAge, though it may be earlier / later depending on how much ‘stuff’ you do while leveling. My paladin obtained the quests for this zone at 22, which is a … Continue reading

Classes.. Classes Everywhere..
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 September 2014, 6:34 am
One of the most difficult aspects to ArcheAge I have had to deal with so far involves picking a class to play. There are 120 class combinations and of course some are going to be better suited to your play … Continue reading

Lets Talk “Illegal” Farms
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2014, 7:00 am
You may have heard the term “illegal farm” in ArcheAge while you have been playing. What is it? It’s anything you (or another player) happens to plant that is 1) not in a public farm and 2) not on a … Continue reading

My Experience is Probably Not Yours
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 September 2014, 7:10 am
Headstart for ArcheAge began a few days ago, letting me finally make use of the $150 Archeum pack I purchased months ago. Sort of. As with any head start or game release these days, Trion was plagued with DDoS attempts, … Continue reading

Upcoming Events – Extra-Life
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 September 2014, 11:13 am
Last year was my first attempt at extra-life – and it was a lot of fun but also very hard. I debated whether or not I was going to do it again this year, especially since almost all of my … Continue reading

I’m Loving Sims 4, Here’s Why
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 September 2014, 4:15 am
There has been a lot of discussion lately on what Sims 4 is missing. Things that were in previous versions of the games, beyond toddlers and swimming pools, that you won’t find in Sims 4 (yet). Many people comment about … Continue reading
