I blame Heart1lly for this post! In my Twitter timeline it is full-on WoW Classic Mania this week. While it’s fun to see everyone taking delight in retro-gaming, I haven’t joined in. Part of the reason is that while I played and enjoyed WoW, it wasn’t, y’know, life-changing for me […]

It was a good run, but my enthusiasm for Final Fantasy XIV suddenly evaporated.

Recently Square Enix was running one of its “come back to Final Fantasy XIV” promotions. If you were a former player you could get a week of sub time just by logging in. As the period for this was winding down I figured “Hey free time, I better use it!” […]

I’ve been meaning to write this post all week but never did because I kept forgetting to take some good screenshots to support it. I still haven’t but y’all know what Star Wars: The Old Republic looks like anyway, right? Without really planning to, I’ve been taking a tour of […]

In a way I picked the worst time to return to Final Fantasy XIV. There’s a new expansion officially out on Tuesday and early access started Friday, I believe. Not only does this mean the servers are congested with login queues and disconnects, but the game was down for a […]

Through an unexpected sequence of events I won’t recount here, I’m back playing Final Fantasy XIV. I have the weirdest history with FFXIV which I also won’t recount, but for all intents and purposes I went back to the game as a total noob. Couldn’t remember how to play so […]

I’m not sure if Belghast of Tales of the Aggronaut came up with the phrase “bouncing off” a game or if he borrowed it, but I heard it first from him so I’m giving him credit. It’s a great phrase so I’m also stealing it. When he says it, I […]

My first exposure to The Elder Scrolls Online’s New Life Festival wasn’t entirely positive. Zenimax is new to these events and hopefully they’ll learn about what works and what doesn’t over time.
