Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 October 2014, 9:00 am
(You can follow my playthrough of The Secret World on Bio Break’s projects page!) Dawning of an Endless Night (story mission, tiers 3-6) With all of Kingsmouth’s missions done (yayyy!) I’m finally freed up to concentrate on the main story … Continue reading


WildStar: Jem and the Holograms
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 October 2014, 9:00 am
After getting some TSW and RIFT time in yesterday, I had an hour or so before bed to check in with WildStar’s now-activated MEGASERVERS.  MEGASERVERS must always be typed in all caps.  Do not stare straight into the MEGASERVERS.  If … Continue reading


WildStar: Saying goodbye to Evindra
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 October 2014, 3:00 pm
Last night was our guild’s — and our server’s — last night on Evindra before today’s megaservers happened, so being the fun-loving group that we are, we threw a huge party to mark the occasion! I had never been to … Continue reading

Let me just check my (play) schedge
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 October 2014, 12:00 pm
I was strongly toying with the notion of adding SWTOR to my play schedule (curse the allure of expansions!), but I don’t think I can in good conscience try to tackle more than four MMOs at a time.  While mulling … Continue reading


RIFT: Dancing with blades
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 October 2014, 9:00 am
Increasingly my favorite soul as a Rogue in RIFT isn’t the Tactician, but the Bladedancer.  I got convinced to give it a serious try thanks to a post on the official forums outlining all of its virtues.  After having played … Continue reading


How to make Guild Wars 2 more “sticky”
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 October 2014, 9:00 am
Back when Guild Wars 2 was behind closed doors and ArenaNet was only letting little peeks into what this game would be, I remember taking these snippets and letting my imagination romp all around the possibilities of the sequel.  A … Continue reading

What should WildStar do with its business model?
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 October 2014, 9:00 am
Due to recent developer comments that they’re “watching” player discussions as to the business model and the general state of the game, it’s safe to say that the business model of WildStar has come under scrutiny not only in the … Continue reading

RIFT: Pile up on the poor Dwarf, why don’t you
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 October 2014, 12:00 pm
Even though RIFT utilizes the older tab-targeting, global cooldown combat system, I’ve been enjoying it as though having a long conversation with an old friend.  Action combat is well and good, but sometimes you want to think during combat and … Continue reading

Evaluating WildStar’s scientist path
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 October 2014, 9:00 am
Probably my biggest regret in WildStar is that I ended up comitting to the scientist path for my main character.  It’s far too late to reroll, so I’m stuck with it.  Sure, I could just ignore it, but I have … Continue reading

Absentee Report: Guild Wars 2 and LOTRO
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 October 2014, 12:00 pm
I always wonder and occasionally fret if Bio Break readers keep track of what I’m playing — and what I *was* playing and am currently not, especially if that’s seen as an indictment of those games.  It’s a silly worry, … Continue reading


Poll: What fall MMO expansions are you planning to play?
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 October 2014, 9:00 am
There are no less than six big MMO expansions coming out between now and the end of the year, and I’m curious which — if any — you’re planning to play.  Let’s take it to the polls and vote for … Continue reading
