Goodbye, Wildstar

It did not come as a surprise when I saw that Wildstar is shutting down - and the developer studio, Carbine, as well. Even though at the beginning of the year, the statement had been that Wildstar would be supported for the foreseeable future. It seemed as if the game has been at least in … Continue reading Goodbye, Wildstar

The Return of Torchlight! (Blaugust Post 7)

When I read that Runic Games, the developing company of the Torchlight series didn't exist anymore back in November 2017, I was rather sad. This meant, after all, that there would be no more Torchlight games. Their last game was Hob. An adventure game with a new IP and more of the puzzle kind. It's … Continue reading The Return of Torchlight! (Blaugust Post 7)

Please give me Rift Wars 2 (Blaugust Post 6)

If Rift and Guild Wars 2 had a baby, I would probably end up with my perfect MMO. Both games have features that I really love while also missing the mark in other areas. Together, however, it'd be great. I love Rift's open world. Switching between continents gives you a loading screen, but other than … Continue reading Please give me Rift Wars 2 (Blaugust Post 6)

“I’m sick”-games: ARPGs (Blaugust Post 5)

Yesterday, we went to our dance school and took two classes. I felt fine and even after the 2.5 hours of dancing, I could have still continued! So it came as a bit of a shock when I woke up during the night with an aching throat and this morning, my whole body was aching. … Continue reading “I’m sick”-games: ARPGs (Blaugust Post 5)

Good old games… that you never played (Blaugust post 4)

Maybe you were too young when game XY originally released. Or you weren't into games then. Or you just completely missed game XY and never even knew it existed. Or (insert any other reason for why you didn't play game XY when it originally released). Do you know such a game? Do you think you … Continue reading Good old games… that you never played (Blaugust post 4)

Ooh! Dinosaurs! (Blaugust Post 3)

Some time ago, I caught a stream about Jurassic World Evolution. I hadn't even known this game existed until that point! I still remember the first Jurassic Park film and that I had just been old enough to watch it when it came out here. Unfortunately, I couldn't actually see it in the cinema - … Continue reading Ooh! Dinosaurs! (Blaugust Post 3)

Real Life happening (Blaugust Post 2)

I can't really make a post about gaming when I haven't played many games, right? We've had our first anniversary last weekend and since we also moved to Hamburg earlier this year, we decided to take this chance and spend a long 4-day-weekend "exploring" this city. I'm using paraphrases here because bookahnerk lived here with … Continue reading Real Life happening (Blaugust Post 2)

Blaugust 2018 (Post 1)

Blaugust... again. But not like the previous ones! As Rakuno pointed out, a mere 5 posts will qualify you to say "I did it!". That's not bad at all - not that the previous Blaugusts were bad, but I generally don't participate when I already know I will fail. So, with the number being officially … Continue reading Blaugust 2018 (Post 1)

Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2

My little rogue in Rift (Prime) is still little. Well, she is a dwarf, but she still hasn't reached the level cap yet. Ember Isle has been released on Prime and since I never experienced this region when the level cap was at 50, I would actually really like to make it there. But levelling … Continue reading Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2
