Atlas Reactor Giveaway: Razer Chroma Skins

I recently won a code for Razer Chroma Skins in Atlas Reactor in a Trion Twitch stream - and then bookahnerk kindly pointed out that I already have them. So, since I don't need it, what better thing to do than to give the code away here? It will give you an exclusive skin for … Continue reading Atlas Reactor Giveaway: Razer Chroma Skins

Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – First Impressions (NO story spoilers!)

Just as indicated in the subject: I am not going to write about the story here. I, myself, am not far in yet and I certainly wouldn't want to take away any content for my readers either. So instead, I am going to give you a few impressions I have gotten without talking about the … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – First Impressions (NO story spoilers!)

MMO gaming-goals this autumn

I really miss the time where I played only one MMORPG (World of Warcraft) and Guild Wars 1 for its story whenever I found time. I am currently trying to dip my toes into too many games at once while actually not having time for any of them. So I thought about what I want … Continue reading MMO gaming-goals this autumn

Life is Strange: Before the Storm

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Ep. 1 (spoiler-free!)

(Spoiler-free zone! I will not talk about the story in this post.) I've finished playing the first episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm! I was a bit worried I could get spoilered, so I tried to play through it fast without rushing. I want to enjoy the game and its story, after all. … Continue reading Life is Strange: Before the Storm Ep. 1 (spoiler-free!)

New look, new character, new expansion

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

Do you ever go back to earlier game versions?

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’m back!

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!

Spoils of this year’s summer sale

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) – Relaunch & Headstart

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
