WWTYB (What Would Tempt You Back) to a Game

I missed the original Twitter Q&A posed by @AlternativeChat asking what would tempt people back to Azeroth/WoW, but I’ve seen a couple of blog posts about it since. (Deliver Me) and (It’s Always Been a Matter of Trust) I have to say that I honestly don’t know what, if anything, would bring me back to…

Yep, I Really Am Over It

If it hadn’t been for Twitter, I would still be unaware of when the next WoW expansion is coming out. For those of you who may be excited for it and don’t know yet, it will be November 13th. I’ve seen the trailer, because it was linked in a tweet, so I clicked it. I…

I Kinda Miss Nostalgia

I read an interesting post on Massively today about Wildstar’s random factor and how it has chosen to structure its endgame. It struck a few chords with me. There may have even been a light bulb popping into existence over my head. I realized a while ago that while I still spend most of my…

Jack of All MMOs, Masters of None?

Liores from Herding Cats got me thinking today. And of course, whenever Twitter’s 140 character limit can’t encompass my rambling, out to the blog I ride… Her post, “MMOs are dead and I don’t feel so good myself” did a good job of capturing my melancholy over MMOs for the past 3, (4?!) or more…

Gaming is Not A Long-term Commitment

I’ve come to a realization recently that I am an old-fashioned gamer. Not the tasty cocktail or ice-cream sundae kind of Old-Fashioned either, but the stodgy get-these-kids-off-my-lawn kind. I’ve been watching people game-hop and finding myself annoyed at those pesky kids and their wanton gaming ways. And then it hit me, we’re talking about games here. Yep…

The Rakghoul Surprise

Bioware launched a surprise dynamic event on us over the weekend. I haven’t seen any of the world bosses for it, probably won’t with our guild gone dark, but the content I’ve been able to do has been pretty fun. I like the pets from questing or purchase with the event currency. I’m not a…

The Evolution to Epic Gear

My guildmates keep giggling over the gear sets we’re picking up from raiding. I recently upgraded my pants. I miss the  good old everyday wear, but the lure of purple gear set bonuses can’t be denied. I suppose the new pants look lived in and comfy? You decide: New Hat. I may actually be willing…

A Little Launch “Poetry”

‘Twas the night before TOR Launch, and all through our houses Our computers were whirring, we were clicking our mouses Our companions were nestled all tight in our ships While visions of starscapes streamed by in fast blips With my smuggler in her kerchief, husband’s soldier with his gun We had just settled down for…
