Advanced pyrotechnics and space-age medicine
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 June 2014, 9:41 am
Guild Wars 2 Even though I’m in the grips of WildStar fever, I still find some time to log into Guild Wars 2 here and there.  I suspect the pull will become stronger when Season 2 begins, but for now … Continue reading

WildStar: Medic vs. Engineer
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2014, 12:00 pm
My propensity for rerolling and my chronic indecision as to whether I’m going to fully devote myself to the Medic, the Engineer, or split my time between both has slowed my leveling in WildStar down to a crawl.  I’m 15 … Continue reading


The Secret World: Little girl, don’t cry
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 June 2014, 9:00 am
With the others AFK, sick, or otherwise unable to come, it was up to Ten Tentacles and I to carry on our Monday night Secret World adventures in Tokyo.  We began by picking up a trio of side missions to … Continue reading


WildStar’s death guy gives me the grins
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2014, 10:39 am
While I stand by my desire to see the growly, SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY narrator in WildStar sacked or at least muted, I’m not singing the same song for another narrator — the unseen voice of the grim reaper.  In-game it’s … Continue reading


WildStar: Are Aurin the elves of the game?
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 June 2014, 7:38 am
I’ve been pondering one slightly disturbing question since WildStar’s launch.  Are Aurin filling the role of the elves in this game?  And if so, do they deserve my undying hatred due to that association? With Guild Wars 2, for instance, … Continue reading


WildStar: Grinding and hospitality
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 June 2014, 9:00 am
Amidst my continuing frustration that WildStar keeps becoming absolutely unplayable on a couple different computers and locations that I’ve tried (the frame rate drops to zero and the game doesn’t respond for seconds at a time), I have gotten in … Continue reading


System Shock 2: Reboot
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 June 2014, 11:17 am
(This is part of my journey playing through System Shock 2. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) I’m returning after a little bit of a break from all of this depressing dead-ship-in-space madness with a firm … Continue reading


WildStar screenshot Thursday
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 June 2014, 7:56 am
Hidden achievement in the shiphand mission has me making affectionate friends with baby body parasites.  I just wish I could’ve kept him. The lighting and mood for that shiphand mission was fantastic.  Not truly scary or anything, but immersive. The … Continue reading

Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 June 2014, 3:13 pm
We’re getting news that one of our blogging brethren, River of A High Latency Life, has passed away following emergency surgery.  Riv was right up there in the thick of us Warhammer Online bloggers back in the day and was … Continue reading


WildStar: Bugs and the glorious beginnings of Pillowtown
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 June 2014, 9:00 am
As usual, I want to get the bad out of the way first: WildStar, what is UP with you lately?  The last couple of days have been absolutely horrible for me, performance-wise.  Not only do I get horrible show-stopping graphical … Continue reading


The Secret World: Flipping worlds
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 June 2014, 12:00 pm
The lesson here is that when you are going up a stairwell and you turn the corner to see a flaming boulder rolling down on you, you’ve got to both run away and frantically hit the screenshot key without peeing … Continue reading


Battle Bards Episode 29: Vocals
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 June 2014, 9:00 am
When you think of MMO music, it’s rare to put a voice to the tunes.  But more often than you’d think, these tracks have amazing vocals that lend an important layer to the proceedings.  In this episode, the bards focus … Continue reading


WildStar: A new start
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 June 2014, 12:00 pm
First things first… How awesome is that screenshot? Anyway, while I had a good time on my Medic and got her to level 16, when I got to Thayd I figured I was at a decision point.  Progressing further felt … Continue reading


The Secret World: Savoring the sequel
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 June 2014, 9:00 am
Oh YES.  Bring it on.  Let’s go… to Tokyo! Issue 9, aka the long-awaited Tokyo release, finally came out last Wednesday.  That kind of sucked for anyone who had just gotten into WildStar in a big way, but I’d rather … Continue reading


Video: 50 WildStar tips

Great video — I learned a few new things!


System Shock 2: Xerxes, why you no like me?
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 June 2014, 12:00 pm
(This is part of my journey playing through System Shock 2. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) As I continue my explorations of the deck, I come upon the ship’s AI, Xerxes.  I can imagine that … Continue reading


WildStar: Setting up the Syp homestead
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 June 2014, 7:55 am
I don’t know how all of these people are leveling up lightning-fast in WildStar.  I’m still in Celestia after several days and I got a ways to go before I complete the entire map.  The good news — for me … Continue reading


Egads, that’s dark!


System Shock 2: All alone. So very alone.
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 June 2014, 12:00 pm
(This is part of my journey playing through System Shock 2. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) With both the doctor and the computer yapping at me to get the heck out of the area before … Continue reading


Battleheart: Legacy will rock your mobile world
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 June 2014, 7:21 am
I don’t want to be premature, but I think that Battleheart: Legacy might just be the best mobile game of the year.  It’s at least sucked me in, prompting me to play it for several hours so far with no … Continue reading


System Shock 2: Syp is a wuss
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 June 2014, 12:00 pm
(This is part of my journey playing through System Shock 2. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) So we’ll start this new series with a mortifying confession: I am a super, major, undeniable wuss when it … Continue reading


10 little things I’m liking about WildStar
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 June 2014, 7:32 am
1. The hologram taxi cab driver’s dialogue is hilariously entertaining.  I always feel bad when one of my trips ends in the middle of his speel. 2. Rivers and lakes have actual currents?  Huh… neat! 3. Double-jumping is so addictive … Continue reading

WildStar: Down the rabbit hole
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 June 2014, 2:10 pm
I saw a couple of people mention this particular secret in WildStar, but when I came across it myself I had to share it as well.  Off to the side of the Celestial Falls here (ain’t it purdy?) is a … Continue reading
