Now for real: Goodbye, Wildstar

I just logged into Wildstar - for the last time, I guess, as the game is shutting down tomorrow. I wanted to take a few last screenshots of the characters I've played. I rode through Thayd, the Exile's city, and did not see many other players around. Then again, the game is shutting down because … Continue reading Now for real: Goodbye, Wildstar

Goodbye, Wildstar

It did not come as a surprise when I saw that Wildstar is shutting down - and the developer studio, Carbine, as well. Even though at the beginning of the year, the statement had been that Wildstar would be supported for the foreseeable future. It seemed as if the game has been at least in … Continue reading Goodbye, Wildstar

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

Quality of Life changes in Wildstar (Blaugust Post 11)

Carbine made a list of the top 10 Quality of Life changes that they will take a look at. I can see two that stand out for me already: Account-wide Toy Box Auction House and Commodities Exchange UI Improvements In Wildstar, there are toys which are reusable little gimmicks, basically. Sparkling spurs, for example. These … Continue reading Quality of Life changes in Wildstar (Blaugust Post 11)

Wildstar E3 Pack: Gnix pet and Hoverboard

No, one can never have enough hoverboards. At least not in Wildstar. :p Humble Bundle is selling the "E3 2016 Digital Ticket" with lots of goodies and a couple of games in between. I actually was not interested in most of those items (though I have always wanted to feel the excitement of being a … Continue reading Wildstar E3 Pack: Gnix pet and Hoverboard

Help! I like too many MMOs…

In the past few weeks, I thought I had finally fallen out of love with Rift. It was to a point where I did not even log in anymore to get my daily artifact (they changed the system now where you get nicer bonuses for logging in, but that's not why I went back). Then … Continue reading Help! I like too many MMOs…

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (April 2016)

Fragmented, the "little brother" of The Repopulation will officially arrive in Steam Early Access soon, on April 26. If you already own The Repopulation, you will get Fragmented for free - or you already got access to it if you registered for pre-steam early access-access. :p Either way, there is still an NDA on the … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (April 2016)

Wildstar’s Jumpstart Pack – Is it worth the price?

I only just wrote about Wildstar's housing and wondered whether you could get the housing teleporter and now they added it to their store for the cost of 720 NCoins. I assume that once the game launches on Steam, it will appear as DLC in their store as well. 800 NCoins cost 10 €, so … Continue reading Wildstar’s Jumpstart Pack – Is it worth the price?

Housing in MMOs: Wildstar

The first parts of this series were posted a long time ago, but I recently stumbled over one of them again and figured I should add Wildstar to this list. If you are wondering what games have been covered here before: Lord of the Rings Online, Aion, Rift and Everquest 2. For Aion, I got help from thevalliants and … Continue reading Housing in MMOs: Wildstar
