WoW Back When: 133 Hours to Level 33


Last night I logged into my favorite MUD and was surprised to see that I had logged over 400 hours on one character. I shouldn’t have been surprised, not with how much I played that game, but going back into a text-based world really accentuated how much my tastes have evolved. I spent 400 hours …

[WoW] Once More at the Level Cap: Looking Back at 85-90


Well, I’ve made it again and I am once more at the level cap in World of Warcraft. It took me longer this time than probably any one of their expansions to date, but I’m glad I made it. It may not have happened, in all honesty — I’d already tried and given up once …

Mists of Pandaria: Playing the Hotbar Game


Over the last week, I’ve spent a decent amount time in Mists of Pandaria plugging along at my 88 Death Knight and 12 Monk. I’ve been having good, if not particularly surprising, fun. I love the painterly quality of Pandaland, hate how Disney playing the starter zone feels, and love how efficient questing is. It’s …

[GW2] Horizontal Endgame or a Purposeless, Grind-Centric Existence?


I’ve been reading other people’s blogs more than writing on my own recently and one of those posts is about GW2’s horizontal progression over at Professor Beej. He makes a good case for providing progressing out vs progressing up and it leads me to wonder if I’m just not the intended demographic for such a game. …

Appreciating My Fellow Bloggers


Today, I’d like to change things up a little bit and express my gratitude towards fellow bloggers that I read regularly. They consistently produce content that is enjoyable to read and from positions of experience, maturity, or at the very least, humor and intrigue. I don’t comment a lot (I read on my iPhone) but …

WoW: MoP Jade Forest Review and Other Miscellaney


It’s been a while since my last update, so I thought I’d check in and let you all know where I’m at. My main game has been WoW: MoP lately but I’ve dipped my toe into more than one water, so let’s jump right in. Jade Forest Review While “review” might be a bit overkill, …

RIFT blew its first shot, will it blow its second?

I made a silly mistake today and renewed RIFT. I’ve been playing it a lot lately and having fun leveling my rogue through PvP. (Admit it Assassins, we’re overpowered). When I got the email reminding me that until I paid up my characters would be sold into slavery, I didn’t even consider that TOR comes …

So are those tourists equal yet?

Here’s a thought I had this morning. No one really argued that WoW Tourists existed. Now that they’ve been “touring” for a handful of years, are they still tourists? Have they made the leap from WoW player to MMO player or are they still the stereotype we thrust upon them when WoW was at its …

A Rebuttal to My Last Post and My Response [Mists of Pandaria]

Maxivik left a great comment on my last post and I wrote a response I thought I’d share here. I think it better explains why I was probably the most cynical about WoW I’ve ever been. The rebuttal! Maxivik Said: I am pretty stoked about this XPac. Removing the big bad villain at the end …

Mists of Desperation

For the first time in years, a Blizzcon has come and left me with, dare I say it, LESS desire to play WoW than than before. Forgive me for sounding a little negative but am I the only one who finds this whole Mists of Panderia thing a bit pathetic? This is what the death …
