Talador Completed

Frustrating Stutters This morning I am feeling relatively miserable.  In truth I have felt extremely lousy since mid way through last week.  The hacking and coughing and clearing of my throat just wears me out, and as a result of all of it my lungs are extremely pissed off at me.  That said since the […]

Musings on Mass Effect 3

It’s funny coming into some of these huge, and rather controversial titles so far after their release because the general buzz has mostly died down so you kind of get the chance to be a little more subjective on the game. You aren’t as influenced by the talk, reviews or any other conversations about the […]

State of the blog address

Published on November 19, 2014 by in Uncategorized

This used to be “Tobold’s MMORPG Blog”, but I dropped the “MMORPG” a good while ago. Nevertheless until this year I still considered myself somewhat as a MMORPG player. I don’t know if it is just me or the state of the genre, but this year made me lose…

By The Numbers, Week 12, 2014

I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year, because some of the best football is played with teams vying for playoff spots (or losing teams just trying to hamper others from getting in). But it also means the […]

Warlords of Draenor – Garrison Life

Have we reached the end of the MMORPG line?

There’s been some talk recently among bloggers and podcasters as to whether or not the end of the Triple-A MMORPG is upon us. I’ll admit there are many signs leaning towards a bleak future for MMOs: The failure of the Subscription model, declining fan-bases across the board, and multiple Triple-A MMOs struggling to survive in […]
