It gives a lot of interesting insights into how aware they are of the problems and what they’re doing to fix them.

Like Stepping Back in Time (A Tale of Two Games)

I have a funny relationship with LotRO. We’re an on-again, off-again kind of couple. Sometimes she gets all hot and bothered when I’m ready to sleep for the night. When I’m in the mood, she immediately tells me to run to Rivendell for some milk. But, honestly, most of the time I’m just out with …

Early on, I think I did a decent job …

Climbing a New Kind of Ladder (or Was That Old?)

My MMO time of late has been spent doing what I enjoy most: leveling. Maybe that’s why I’ve been having so much fun in FFXIV, there’s always something to do. When I came in, I knew about the open class system, but I didn’t anticipate branching out into the different professions so much; usually I’m not …
