Sliding Down the Blade’s Edge
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 September 2014, 1:00 pm
Last time around I found my progress towards the Loremaster achievement in World of Warcraft… well… if not thwarted, at least delayed.  While I did a lot of quests in Nagrand, I found myself 12 quests shy of the achievement, and for 11 of those 12 quests I need a group or to be level […]


Rift Joins the Insta-Level Club with Nighmare Tide Expansion
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 September 2014, 11:00 am
While I haven’t been in Rift for ages, that doesn’t mean Trion Worlds isn’t still out there plugging away.  During that very busy stretch in August… I though people went on vacation in August… they announced a new expansion, the Nightmare Tide. This will bring the level cap up to 65, adds new content in […]


Leaving a Pile of Stuff Behind in Delve…
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 September 2014, 1:00 pm
Another Summer in Delves comes to an end.  The word came down on Friday that our deployment to Delve would be closing down and that there would be many… that was the term used… convoys heading back to Deklein so we could get various ships safely home to our new staging system. Having piled up […]


Cleaning Up the Neighborhood Back in Deklein
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 September 2014, 1:00 pm
The return to Deklein seems to have been accomplished for most people over the weekend.  Somewhere I missed the broadcast about there being a channel set up for people looking to get ships brought north via excess hangar space in carriers.  By last night the channel was deserted, leading me to the conclusion that most […]


Quote of the Day – In Which 25 Million Equals Nothing
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 September 2014, 4:00 pm
25 million people play Call of Duty monthly, but that pales in comparison to 2.5 billion people on the Internet. That’s 1 percent of the Internet, that’s nothing. Michael Pachter, at Cloud Gaming USA That is one of those quotes that boggles the mind as it lets so much slip by, to the point of […]


The Notch Timeline
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 September 2014, 11:00 am
Remember when Facebook announced they were buying Occulus Rift back in March? We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus. I just cancelled that deal. Facebook creeps me out. — Markus Persson (@notch) March 25, 2014 Well, the outrage or discomfort or whatever passed with time it seems. And about […]


The Pokemon Binge Continues in Unova
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 September 2014, 1:00 pm
Avoidance is a wonderful thing.  You can accomplish so much when you are trying to avoid doing what you are actually supposed to be doing. I am not ready to admit defeat on my run for the Loremaster achievement, but I must admit that my current focus on the little Nintendo 3DS XL screen is […]


Eight Years of Link Rot
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 September 2014, 1:00 pm
Years ago, back when the when we thought the World Wide Web was new and cool and we actually called it the World Wide Web and you had to have “www” in front of a web address because otherwise somebody might think you wanted Gopher access to their site for Christ’s sake, back then I […]

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 […]


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 […]


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 […]


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 […]
