Back in Gloamwood

So here I was, ready to rant about how old zones in MMORPGs somehow always give me nostalgic feelings and how I almost always prefer some old zone over newer expansion ones when I felt like I had a deja-vu. A quick google search confirmed my suspicion: I already ranted about this! Even worse, I … Continue reading Back in Gloamwood

Late to the (PvP) party?

Trion hosted a PvP-focused Rift livestream on Friday* and I realized that I only played a handful of PvP games in Rift and that was years ago already. Thankfully, there is no open world PvP (there is a PvP server but I don't play on that one). On the contrary, both factions can play together … Continue reading Late to the (PvP) party?

If you don't like PvP, you can play against PvE enemies by clicking on "vs bots" and … Continue reading Rift: How to get your Rask pet

Rift Dimensions: Tree House in Moonshade Pools

For months, I've been dreaming about making a tree house for my elf (Kelari, actually) rogue in Rift. I had chosen the Stone Grove already, but something didn't "click". It has a huge big tree in the middle and is just asking for a tree house to be built. Yet, nothing happened. I started by … Continue reading Rift Dimensions: Tree House in Moonshade Pools

Today’s Recipe: (Hessian) Green Sauce

Regular readers may know that I am from Germany and to be even more precise, I am from Hessen (best state in Germany, of course - well, at least geographically, since we're in the middle and can reach all the other parts of Germany relatively easily). We have a few traditional dishes here (and apple … Continue reading Today’s Recipe: (Hessian) Green Sauce

Folk Tale: Where is it now? (March 2017)

Folk Tale has been in development and in Steam Early Access for a long time already and this is where a lot of the negative reviews are coming from. The developer, GamesFoundry, has steadily been working on the game and there have been regular updates (game updates as well as communication!) in all that time … Continue reading Folk Tale: Where is it now?

We have posted a total of 593 published posts (594 as soon as I hit "publish" on this one) which means that we have about 100 posts per years which translates to one post every three to four days.

Northgard

Quick First Impressions Review: Northgard

I've promised to write down my impressions of Northgard on Twitter. The game released tonight, exactly two hours ago and since it is an early access game, you will not get my usual first impressions review, but a very quick first impressions review. :p I will - depending on the outcome of this first glance … Continue reading Quick First Impressions Review: Northgard
