After a long hiatus, I went back to Guild Wars 2. Of course, I also sat here watching the announcement of the next expansion "Path of Fire" excitedly, but unlike what feels like the huge majority of Guild Wars 2 fans, it did not leave me impressed. A new elite specialization for each profession, 5 … Continue reading New look, new character, new expansion
I started "Tropico 5" several times lately only to realize that something isn't right with it. I miss Tropico 4 - and I can't even say exactly what it is. I called Tropico 5 a waste of my money for quite some time. After playing it for more than 110 hours, I obviously cannot say … Continue reading Do you ever go back to earlier game versions?
The giveaway is closed. Please give us some time to check and double-check all entries, roll for the winners and send out the keys to said winners! Having had issues with my hand for several weeks, being unable to type, also has some advantages. I could not handle a giveaway and paused, but now that … Continue reading Big Trion Giveaway – Win items for Trove, Rift and ArcheAge
I managed to play Rift this morning. Just for half an hour, but it felt so good to use my left hand again. I still don't have a diagnosis, but all this "rest your wrist, don't use it!" was garbage since it probably/very likely never even was a tenosynovitis. All results so far say that … Continue reading I’m back!
Same problem every Steam sale: So many games, so many sales, but still neither enough money nor enough time to get and play all the games on my wishlist. :p I sorted them by priority and then in the end, ignored that priority anyway and got games lower on my list or games that hadn't … Continue reading Spoils of this year’s summer sale
Secret World Legends has launched with its head start for owners of the original Secret World on Friday. I had been looking forward to this day, but unfortunately, my left hand is still injured. This means that I couldn't play much yet, but I did create my character, at least. I decided not to read … Continue reading Secret World (Legends) – Relaunch & Headstart
My hands haven't really gotten better. In fact, the pain has worsened (tenosynivitis). It's got to let me to look at speech recognition software and I did get a programme for German, which will hopefully help me get my work done. However, it is only for German. I found an online website using Google for … Continue reading Playing with handicapped hands…
I switched to different projects thinking I've run out of ideas how to continue with this dimension, but in the end, I always get some ideas for little things I can add. I've made a list now and am slowly working through it. Comparing yourself with others is always a bad idea, because there will … Continue reading Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island IV
Rift changed their expansion's name to "Prophecy of Ahnket" (due to some legal issues with a charity) and used this moment to start a little promotion: Everybody who logs in from now until May 14 gets the newest expansion for free! After that, you will have to pay for the expansion again, but it will … Continue reading Get the Rift expansion for free!
I didn't really continue with my tree house project, but I decided to start yet another one. The thing is that I've been playing my Primalist more recently. She's still tiny (level 22), but she wants a place to call home. While walking through my storage dimension that's filled with buildings only, I took a … Continue reading Rift Dimensions: Hey look! Another dimension project!
