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

Do you ever go back to earlier game versions?

Playing with handicapped hands…

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…
