Looking East from Wildermore LOTRO: I finally was able to take in the content released with Update 11: Wildermore (some spoilers from here on). Mea Culpa: I made a rookie mistake when…about 3/4 of the way through the zone, I … Continue reading →
A couple weeks ago during one of my guild’s regular The Secret World Monday nights, fellow blogger Syp and I got to discussing what we thought were some of the creepiest moments in the game. Which got to me thinking — well, let’s face it, there are more of these freaky moments in TSW than […]
I’ve still been thinking over the recent quote from destructoid regarding the massive sausage fest eve has going for it. I always expected the numbers were far from approaching equality but a measly 5%, wow. Why this is is a little uncertain though and like most things it wouldn’t be one, or even a handful […]
I’m on some newsletter mailing list from IGN, and they sent me a link to their review of The Last of Us, an upcoming PS3 game. They gave it a perfect 10.0 out of 10. Metacritic already has like 50 professional review of The Last of Us, with an average…
I have a confession to make… I have never really liked any of the elder Scrolls games I’ve played. They just seem so absolutely boring to me. The world and characters are often so bland, the combat is simplistic, and apart from the rare side quest you find everything is just so average. It amuses […]
Just a suggestion…[adapted from my Cookery Crafting spreadsheet!] Couldn’t get the Morder Brewery Logo to show…Oh well…
Well hello there, blogosphere! Of the top, I have to apologize for being a little inactive as of late, the world has been conspiring to hoover up all of my spare time in the past couple weeks, but I’ll be back with a vengeance, I promise! Imagine my delight upon signing back in after a […]
Even though it happens this time every year, I can’t believe we’re transitioning into the summer months. I just finished planning the next three months of my work schedule and have started to give some thought about what I want to do in my gaming time. 1. Starting a new character in The Secret World … … Continue reading →

Me, I have a slightly different opinion: For me the difference between adult and immature behavior has a lot to do with dealing with the consequences. Sex or violence are not inherently adult or immature themes, but when they are depicted as having no consequences, that description is immature. Sex and violence in games often follows that pattern. But there are books and movies that deal in a very adult way with the consequences of sex or violence. In fact most recognized literary works are about the consequences of sex and/or violence. Remove all sex and violence from let’s say Shakespeare, and there is nothing left. But by focusing on the consequences instead the act itself you get something adult instead of immature.
LOTRO Players is a website designed to host various LOTRO Fan communities under one roof.
Thanks to the help of a reader, I finally managed to get the Scrolls shop loading, and bought and installed the game. Not long afterwards I very much regretted that decision. I had expected so much more, but Scrolls is very much lacking the innovation…
Where ArenaNet has hit the highest marks for their live-game updates, in my opinion, is where it affects community interaction. For content on its own, even good content such as the Cragstead instance, it’s neat, and then I move on. It is where the Living Story has changed the momentum of daily playing where I [...]
There is Beer in LOTRO! Yes you can drink as much as you want… It (and due to pipe weed smoking) is why it has a ‘T rating’ for teenagers… I am a long way from teenager and I like beer in fact I have been known to drink more than is recommended by the […]
Another week, another Monday night with The Secret World, and the Knights of Mercy are just gonna keep chiseling away at this game one dirty balls joke at a time until we polish off all the elite instances! I went into this version of The Ankh with some dread and apprehension, but we did manage […]
Most tabletop games have some sort of symmetry where all players have the same role and resources in the game. Pen & paper roleplaying games (and some board games who borrowed the concept) work differently in that one of the “players” has a very d…
