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)

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)

The end of Blaugust 2016 (Blaugust Post 18)

I have decided to "stop" with Blaugust. As always, it is a great initiative, but as I initially wrote, I will have to see if it interferes with my other duties, most of all my Real Life. The good news is: It's not really interfering. The bad news is: There's this pressure on my mind … Continue reading The end of Blaugust 2016 (Blaugust Post 18)

GW2: The beginning… – Looking back 4 years (Blaugust Post 17)

Guild Wars 2's fourth anniversary is coming up in a couple of days. The headstart began on August 25, 2012. Gaile asked for screenshots from the launch weekend on the official forum and I figured this is a great opportunity to get nostalgic here in this blog as well! I still clearly remember getting up … Continue reading GW2: The beginning… – Looking back 4 years (Blaugust Post 17)

Cities Skylines: Natural Disasters (Blaugust Post 16)

A few days ago, I had seen that Cities Skylines will get another expansion and that they planned to announce it at gamescom. On Wednesday evening while chatting with bookahnerk, I said to him: "I am interested, but nothing more. As much as I like the game, it just can't keep me playing. I guess … Continue reading Cities Skylines: Natural Disasters (Blaugust Post 16)
