The Merits of Shorter Play Sessions

Published on September 28, 2014 by in mmos

In the past, one of the things that I’d always look out for when purchasing a game was the amount of playtime I would get out of it. The thinking went that more play time is always better than less, just in value for money terms if nothing else. The older I have got though, […]

[RR] D&D 5th: Races

Published on September 28, 2014 by in RPG Ravings

5th edition starts with many races, re-vamps the idea of subraces, takes another pass at balancing races while maintaining classic flavor, builds its new mechanics into the races, and nudges the player towards certain norms. The pool of “standard” PC races has fluctuated over the D&D editions, and 5th edition starts with almost all of […]

Stuck in my Relaxed Gaming Mode

I’m a little sad about my current gameplay in Eve Online or lack of it. For the last month or so, I haven’t really been doing much more than skill flipping in the game. My alliance has taken some property in Null Sec, but I am not feeling the excitement I had last time I

So, what are you all playing? #Upgoerfive

Today’s written notice will be made with only the most used words of my means of talking. Some sad will be had since so little can be used. Much of my talk needs lots of words to have meaning! I thought this would be fun. It is, but not easy! The idea came from a […]

Complacency and Facebook

Couple thoughts today… I was filling up my car with gas this morning and as I was finishing up, I noticed one of the attendants standing slightly off to the side of the garage smoking a cigarette. Now, I am sure they feel safe smoking at a gas station, but I certainly didn’t. I figure

Week 4, 2014

It seems like a poor start for a Packers unit that came into the season with higher expectations. Fans (including me) wanted to see more of the stellar run game that Lacy and Starks produced last season, and an improved defense after picking up LB Peppers and drafting defensive players like Saftey Clinton-Dix. So far, […]
