For a bit of context, this post was born out of a discussion I had with Izlain on the podcast Couch Podtatoes. We disagreed fundamentally on the definition of the word ‘sport’, whether esports are truly sports, and on the importance of physicality to qualify as a true sport. Realizing his reservations echoed some of the […]

The Skill Queue

Published on July 22, 2014 by in Skills Training

One thing I find incredibly annoying lately is keeping the skill queue updated. I’ve been been playing less lately but with an even dozen accounts it seems like almost every day at least 3-4 characters need their skill queues updated.It’s a hassle, esp…

The Numbers Game

We all know that Blizzard’s “World of Warcraft” is a juggernaut in the MMORPG genre. It’s massive +7,000,000 current subscriber base dwarfs most other MMORPGs, and is widely considered to be the most successful western MMO ever. And much of that has to do with advertising.

Game Guys That Straight Guys Would Date

So back in like February I watched a video by Smosh Games on their “Why We’re Single” series – a super awkward video for the clearly uncomfortable, straight guys in it – where they talk about male game characters that they would date. It was a funny video, but also really interesting to see how these men picked […]

[TT] Interaction

Published on July 22, 2014 by in Tabletop Tuesday

Eurogames are frequently distinguished from American games by being more abstract (focused on mechanics rather than theme) with less conflict (competition is often indirect, players are rarely eliminated). Zombie Dice and Dungeon Roll are dice-based “push your luck” games with no interactivity at all. Gameplay is no different as a single-player game, and the endpoint […]

Alt Time!

Published on July 22, 2014 by in Uncategorized

My Spellslinger has been at 50 for a couple weeks now, so it is time to start working on an alt. Or 5. Seriously, I need more character slots, it is killing me that I have no room for Dominion alts on the only RP server. Anyhow, I thought I’d use this chance to introduce […]

No Gaming for You! ESO, LOTRO and the Lack of Time
