Gaming nostalgia weekend

Bookahnerk and I will be spending this weekend (re-)visiting good old gaming times. Ultima Online started their version of "free to play" (or free trial, if you prefer) called Endless Journey yesterday. This was his favourite MMO back in the day and to some extent still is. I never played the official game. I only … Continue reading Gaming nostalgia weekend

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

Big Trion Giveaway – Win items for Trove, Rift and ArcheAge

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 could not handle a giveaway and paused, but now that … Continue reading Big Trion Giveaway – Win items for Trove, Rift and ArcheAge

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!

Project: Wildstar Housing

I did it! I managed to get my second character to level 14 which is where you unlock your housing plot. In case you're now sitting there in front of your monitor pondering the amount of effort it needs to get to 14 - don't bother. It's fast. I'm just slow. ;) My Rift housing … Continue reading Project: Wildstar Housing

Christmas present: Glider skins!

Before Christmas, I had gotten a nice surprise in the mail. My former colleague (from when I had that horrible-job-from-hell) had not just sent a Christmas card, but also an 800 gem code for me! I immediately went to the GW2 shop in-game and browsed through the items. While I like the basic glider skin, … Continue reading Christmas present: Glider skins!

Winners of Week 2

First of all, a "status update" on the 4th giveaway: It was originally planned to start it this Thursday. But when I did that, I had not known that I would carry a fridge + freezer combination upstairs into our flat with bookahnerk and that I'd sit here on Tuesday evening licking my wounds (well, … Continue reading Winners of Week 2

Summer break for Nerdy Bookahs

The days are getting warmer and warmer and summer is fast approaching. But unfortunately, this is not the reason for this post's title. For the next month or two, both bookahnerk and I will be very busy in that thing called "real life". Additionally, we are going to move to a new flat which also … Continue reading Summer break for Nerdy Bookahs

Asking for player feedback

It comes with my job that I know more about questionnaires than I could have ever dreamed (if I ever did dream about making questionnaires and analysing the data afterwards when I was a kid ^^). So naturally, I also watch how game companies ask for feedback. Recently, Warhammer Online set a rather sad example. … Continue reading Asking for player feedback

First posting

First posting here. My boyfriend's wanted to start blogging for quite some time and so we decided to collaborate and share a blog. We're both not posting on a daily basis, so it seemed to be a perfect fit. :) He was the one who got me into MMORPGs while I was the one who … Continue reading First posting
