Vacation Backlog

Published on October 21, 2014 by in Rambles

I’m back! I took a month off from the blog. Unintentionally. Basically I discovered that Kerbal Space Program had added a career mode since the last time I tried it, and got extremely focused on the game.  Like I did when I first started playing Minecraft and again when I started playing with mods. I’m […]

Dracula Untold

Beware: Small spoilers ahead! This re-imagining of the classic vampire tale tells of how Vlad the Impaler came to be (in the first 5 minutes) and how he turns into the legendary Dracula (the rest of the movie). The plot is pretty straight forward and m…

Contains Moderate Peril Episode 163: One Goat, One Vote

Welcome to the one hundredth and sixty third Contains Moderate Peril podcast. Sean and I continue our conversation with fellow bloggers Jessica and Murf and this week focus on the thorny issue of PVP. It’s a subject that often divides player opinion but does it really deserve all the negative connotations that are associated with it. We strive to rise above

A Short and Bloody Visit to F7C-H0

Well, it was a short visit for me. The highlight of weekend fleet ops up until Saturday evening had been flying around Black Rise to pop a couple of Black Legion faction battleships with DBRB.  I hadn’t been in one of his fleets in ages, and it was good to see that he hasn’t calmed […]

I Saw A Dragon!

Imperfections Can Be Uncomfortable Last time I spoke of Dragon Age: Origins, I had just started playing with a female Elf Mage only to be bored of her by the end of the tutorial. Recently, I decided to try to continue, so when I fired up the game, I thought about the mage, and realised that …

The World of Warcraft zone name generator

For kicks, I broke down some of the generic fantasy mishmash zone names in WoW into a chart so that they could be rearranged to make even MORE generic fantasy mishmash zone names.  Blizzard, you may pay me for this … Continue reading

Emergent Gamplay – CCP’s Rule of Thumb

Published on October 20, 2014 by in Uncategorized

So it was a slow night in local chat. Somehow the topic had turned to how some things were inexplicably considered “emergent gameplay” while other similar things were considered exploits.Me, being kind of bored, I just had to throw my 2 cents into the …

CCP in secret talks to buy Roberts Space Industries

In news that is sure to shake the MMORPG industry to its very core, gaming giant CCP (developers of “EVE Online” and other EVE-related games) are in secret talks to buy out Roberts Space Industries. My sources close to both companies confirm these talks have been going on for several months now, and appear to […]

Fan Festival Was Amazing Watch live video from finalfantasyxiv on TwitchThere have been several community events that I have watched over the years for the various games I have been into.  I’ve watched SOE Live, and Blizzcon… so I guess I was expecting the Fan Festival to feel pretty much the same, but in the […]

New Roles Arise

Published on October 20, 2014 by in WoW Stuff

Looking back on it, every time there has been a fairly significant change in my life (moving, ending a relationship with someone, getting a new job, other various Life Events), things have changed for me in Azeroth, too.  I’ll change servers, change guilds, change my main. Change. The winds of change are upon us once […]

State of the Game: Week 42, 2014

Yeah, I know, that’s not a very descriptive title for the round-up this week, but you see I had a problem. Well, it’s actually not much of a problem, it’s actually been rather nice. I’ve been playing Skyrim, and that’s what I spent the majority of my time on this week. That means a round-up […]

Uncomfortable With Hatred

Hatred in the general sense, but more so in the upcoming gaming title. Watch the trailer: First off “May Contain Content Innappropriate for Children?” Seriously? Do I need to make a snarky/sarcastic comment here? The polish studio Destructive Creations is behind this…

Golden Child

I can’t believe it took me a whole week to get this posted, but there’s been a lot going on, I suppose. Last weekend Funcom put on a Golden Weekend, including a new outfit (“Extra Heavy Metal”), and a chance to fight Samsu Nasiru (aka Goldzilla). The big deal—at least for me—was the chance to get double AP for working on the wheel. Over the course of the weekend, I managed to gain several hundred ability points and over 21 abilities on the wheel, finishing out the 21-point abilities and putting a significant dent in the 27-point tier.

Grinding the Goldzilla fight (12 TIMES Saturday and Sunday) got a little boring, so I also ran through the Last Train to Cairo mission series. It’s still my favorite of the DLC Issues, I can’t get over how awesome the Train instance is. One of these days I am going to have to get the Issue 9, The Black Signal, and run through Tokyo with Scooter.

This weekend has been more about getting settled into Rift, not to mention replacing a ceiling fan that malfunctioned in September. It’s already significantly cooler in the living room, which is where I spend most of my time gaming.
