Neverwinter launched on the Xbox One on March 31st and I’ve been playing it ever since, at my usual casual pace. My character is level 31 at the moment, and I’ve generally been enjoying myself except for one thing: the constant exposure to gambling systems. Neverwinter is free to play […]

If you’re reading this blog I’m sure you know everything that’s been going on with SOE, but just in case, here’s a recap. Sony, SOE’s parent company, has been losing money in a big way. As it struggles to recover it’s been spinning off and selling parts of itself. Last […]

Last spring TitanFall launched after a TON of hype. I snagged a copy for PC (at a steep discount, thankfully) and played it twice before deciding the game wasn’t for me. More recently both Evolve and Battlefield Hardline have run beta events. I dutifully downloaded both of them, and played […]

After getting hyped about the Guild Wars 2 expansion (see previous post) I jumped into the game anew. Well almost anew. I had a level 8 ranger that I decided to play. A LOT has changed since the last time I played Guild Wars 2; many systems seem to be […]

For some reasoning I’m feeling optimistic and upbeat today, so I wanted to talk about hype and how I think we (ok mostly I, but there’s some of you like me out there too) need to learn to embrace it. Full stop: I’m not talking about PR hype that’s coming […]

I’ve been enjoying the heck out of ArcheAge and found myself looking at all the goodies in the Starter Pages and finding myself tempted to buy one, which is crazy since I already spent stupid money on a Founders Pack. Still the itch was there. Today I decided to do […]

It seems like the ArcheAge anger is dying down in the blogosphere (or I’ve started tuning it out) as either the queues fade or people just give up and go away mad. Personally I’ve had good luck since re-rolling on one of the first ‘expansion servers.’ As a Patron my […]

So ArcheAge is the new Flavor of the Month. Months ago curiosity got the better of me and I bought a Founders Pack which came with some Patron time, so when the game launched I figured I better jump in since I essentially had pre-paid for time. Of course by […]

For the past week or two I’ve been surprising both myself and my friends by being a social gamer. I’ve been doing dungeons in PUGs in Final Fantasy XIV, joined a Free Company (Guild) and have actually been interacting with other members, joined a link shell, added some random folks […]
