I had a plan last night for a blog post this morning, which will still go ahead as scheduled, but I want to start today with something else. I often use Twitter as a tailor’s dummy, on which I’ll pin various things as basis for discussion. Last night, …
I don’t watch live TV. Having to be there at a specific time, and then sitting through the ads, not my cup of tea. But I do watch a lot of TV shows, either recorded with a hard drive recorder, or bought as a full season of one TV show on DVD. Usually f…
As you may have noticed if you follow this blog much, I really like Blockade Runners. Blockade Runners are awesome, they’re small, fast, agile, can warp while cloaked and cannot be cargo scanned, all of which makes them fantastic for hauling valuable n…
As I mentioned in a previous post, I have played a bunch of League of Legends to the exclusion of other games that I own. I enjoy the competition – it is basically 5v5 PvP, and I like the diverse set of characters that you can play. Many times, though, it can get real frustrating.
In case this is the first time you’re reading me this week, I went a little Destiny heavy. Here’s a recap of the posts I put up: Destiny After All. In this post, I reconciled my previous musings on Destiny, my lack of interest in the game, and why I was ultimately purchasing it day one […]
Arrrr. Now that that’s out of the way… Destiny is an interesting, and somewhat divisive game. I’ve been playing it a bit, and I’ve been having fun, but apparently not everyone is. It’s not perfect, but I will say that I haven’t had this much fun with a 70s Metacritic game in a long time. […]
Race over to the PlayStation store, because Sony’s got a flash sale going on right now! You can score over 25 racing games for up to 75% off. It’s a steal! Snag games like Cel Damage HD, Need for Speed … Continue reading →
Hail and Well Met Friends! This week we continue our series of the great White Wizard and one of the greatest Villains of Middle-earth. Everyone enjoy… A Grey Arrival The five wizards arrived at the Grey Havens around the year 1000. Only the keeper of the havens, Círdan the Shipwright, knew Saruman’s identity and origin. […]
That certainly took a while to reach. Yes, I’ve managed to accomplish one of my goals for Hearthstone: Reaching Legendary status. Now I can relax some and experiment with other decks and classes before the next great hunter nerf. The deck I used was the one I linked to in my last post for Hunters. […]

This was going to be something for the top section of the month in review, but it ended up being a bit longer than I would like, so I’ll just complain about WordPress.com or something on the 30th. So over there in the side bar on the right hand side of the blog, there is […]
The extent to which game information is exposed to players has a profound effect on their relationship to the play experience. In the formative days of MMOs, information was a privilege: a resource to be discovered and shielded from the unworthy, doled…
Blowing a raspberry: the origin of which is an instance of rhyming slang, in which the non-rhyming part of a rhyming phrase is used as a synonym. In this case, “raspberry tart” rhymes with “fart”. It was first recorded in 1890. Tsukuld is now wrapping up the Himbar area of Angmar. As most of the […]
Zenimax recently announced a Veterans Reward system for “The Elder Scrolls Online”, which is an effort to reward players who continue to subscribe to the game after logic and common sense tell them it is time to quit. This is a common tactic used by MMO companies to retain subscribers, and some programs are more […]
Square Enix announced yesterday that the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy will be heading to PC, with the first of the three launching on October 9th, 2014. Just less than a month away!
The game will be available for download via the Square Enix online store and Steam for $15.99. Right now, the game is up for pre-order through Steam, with a pre-order bonus of 10% off.
There’s also a promise of trading cards for the Final Fantasy 13 trilogy, which players can collect and trade. Sounds exciting!
While I haven’t played any games in the Final Fantasy franchise, this particular trilogy has been widely successful, with over 11 million units shipped worldwide.
I think it’s time to jump on that bandwagon!
