My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

I saw Tyler from Superior Realities's posts about his stable of characters (impressive!) and decided I'd do the same or something similar. After searching through my own blog, I found that I last did that in August 2015. I am going to focus on my most played characters instead of showing my whole stable, as … Continue reading My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

LotRO and their legendary servers

Thursday evening, Standing Stone Games opened the first of their legendary servers, Anor. The waiting queue reached 4000, apparently. But despite SSG saying it was just a display issue and queues were working correctly, they weren't (and still weren't yesterday). Bookahnerk, who was the last (!) to queue from the four of us (we're playing … Continue reading LotRO and their legendary servers

I hate Mines of Moria (IntPiPoMo 1)

...With a passion! I am not a big fan of vertical maps in MMOs to begin with, but if in addition to the design, the map itself is also rather useless, my frustration is doubled. But that's not enough for most of the regions of Mines of Moria. Additionally, you can't exactly see if there … Continue reading I hate Mines of Moria (IntPiPoMo 1)

Returning to LotRO

I did say I'm giving Elder Scrolls Online another try, didn't I? But when I was looking for an alternative to Rift, I also remembered LotRO - well, that, plus they announced the Legendary server. I have a lifetime account, so returning is quite easy for me. You get shop currency once a month with … Continue reading Returning to LotRO

Looking for a new MMO-home

We still have not heard anything from gamigo and their plans with the games they acquired from Trion. Of course, all of this doesn't necessarily mean that Rift will be closed or that much will be changed for Rift as it is now. But I'm still not feeling too confident and decided to look for … Continue reading Looking for a new MMO-home

Rift Greater Vicious Wyvern Beastmaster Pet

Pet classes and MMOs

I have often seen people ask "Will there be a pet class?" before an MMO released and it appears that this is the deciding factor in whether they're interested in the game. I personally am torn when it comes to these classes: I actually enjoy playing a pet class sometimes, but not as my main … Continue reading Pet classes and MMOs

Housing in MMOs: Lord of the Rings Online

There are many things I want and expect from MMOs and one thing is housing. I love feeling as if I was in a virtual world and for me, having a little home in there that I can customize is just part of it. I've been what I call a "housing tourist" in some MMOs... … Continue reading Housing in MMOs: Lord of the Rings Online

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (January 5, 2014)

Welcome to today’s Bookahneer’s Geekwatch and the first Geekwatch in 2014! The place about miscellaneous interesting news related to Guild Wars 2 – and on occasion, other games. We have been relatively quiet for some time, as we had visited bookahnerk's family over New Year's. My plan had been to use the time away from … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (January 5, 2014)

Juggling through my MMOs

Sometimes I really wish there was just one MMO. The perfect one for me. But you rarely, if ever, find something perfect for you unless it was specifically created just for you and nobody else. All of the MMOs I'm currently playing offer me something that the others can't give me. At the moment, I … Continue reading Juggling through my MMOs

Me and my Mini-Mes…

After I had written about the online game I've been playing the longest, I figured I should "revisit" all my MMO characters. Mentioned and shown below are only the ones I called my "main" in games that I have played for more than one month. I couldn't possibly list and show all the twinks and … Continue reading Me and my Mini-Mes…
