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?

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

Rift Dimension building project: Tempest Island IV

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

Get the Rift expansion for free!

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!

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?

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

Elder Scrolls Online Dragonknight Lava Whip

Different game, same problem…

The last thing I wrote about Elder Scrolls Online was the complaint about the importance of race when choosing a class. I have gotten used to it now - I am still not a big fan of that system, though. But now the next problem emerges: I was happily playing my orc stamina sorcerer and … Continue reading Different game, same problem…

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

I have recently tried hopping into Elder Scrolls Online again and as I want a fresh start, I looked up guides and possible builds for the classes, to get a feeling for which class I may want to play. While I did that, I noticed that several posts about builds (e.g., this one or this … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

Personal Top 9 of 2016

I have seen several people and gaming sites make their "top x games of 2016" and when wondering which games I would put on my list, I thought: "Oh well, why not publish it here?" Maybe you're already sick of seeing these lists, but stay with me for a bit longer... my list is a … Continue reading Personal Top 9 of 2016
