So I sprang for a 60-day timecard for Warhammer Online via that Black Friday deal. I’m not exactly sure when I’ll use it though; pretty sure it won’t be until after the 1st of the year at the earliest. I’ve been reading the blogs of some of the folks who […]

Yesterday the EQ2 Tradeskill bug bit me again, and I lost several hours leveling up tradeskillers. Now granted, I’m prone to enjoy tradeskilling in MMOs, but only in EQ2 do I have “career tradeskillers” — characters that pretty much only exist to do tradeskills. In part, that’s because EQ2 allows […]

Sorry for the late posting of this but I’ve been away. One of Amazon’s black Friday deals is a 60-day Warhammer Online time card for $19.95. Get to play Warhammer for $10/month! Go get one!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving here in the United States. I’ll be on the road, going to visit my dear old mum, so Dragonchasers will be silent for a couple days. I really like the idea of Thanksgiving. It’s all about gathering with friends and family and sharing a feast. No over-the-top […]

Real quick because I’m running late for work. Mythic is shoving folks off of the Averheim server, where CoW was located. The new server for Casualties of War is Badlands. Important detail: Even if your account is inactive, you can transfer characters! I transferred my brood this morning, so when […]

Last night I was back in WoW. After the buyer’s remorse-fest of Sunday, I’m not even sure why I logged in. Stubbornness perhaps, or maybe as a show of solidarity with the guild. This time, I started a Drenai Shaman. Good move on my part, at least the Drenai aspect. […]

So aside from re-subscribing to WoW, the weekend was mostly about EQ2. (Hmm, it just struck me that in the past few days I’ve griped about how lost I felt in EQ2 because there’s so much new stuff, and griped about how WoW seems so unchanged!) I leveled my Berserker […]

So at approximately 11 pm last night, I renewed my WoW subscription. And yes, the baby polar bears figured into that decision, more in terms of timing than in terms of the decision to renew. I felt it coming on, now that CoW is moving into WoW, and figured I […]

I spent most of my gaming time this weekend playing EQ2. Now I played this game at launch and I’ve gone back to it intermittently since then, but since launch Sony has released 5 expansions for the game. And I find I just have no idea what’s out there any […]

Dmosbon over at Construed has posted the first part of an interview with Matt Staroscik, Game Designer and Lead Writer for The Agency. The Agency is Sony’s upcoming spy-based action-MMO for the PS & PS3. Well worth a ready with your Sunday morning coffee. The Agency Q&A, Part I
