Defiance 2050

Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2

My little rogue in Rift (Prime) is still little. Well, she is a dwarf, but she still hasn't reached the level cap yet. Ember Isle has been released on Prime and since I never experienced this region when the level cap was at 50, I would actually really like to make it there. But levelling … Continue reading Summer of MMOs: Rift, Defiance, Guild Wars 2

SimAirport

Summer sales – uh oh…

What did I say about too many games, but not enough time? I completely forgot about summer sales. But so far, I've been a good little geek. I bought SimAirport which has been on my wishlist forever. Since it's early access, I was very careful at first and didn't want to buy it right away. … Continue reading Summer sales – uh oh…

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (June 2018): New games and E3

Do you know when we had our last Bookahneer's Geekwatch? In September 2016! To be honest, I actually forgot I had this column and whenever I had a few gaming things that got me excited, I thought: Nah, that's not worth a whole blog post. But that's exactly what this column is for, after all. … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (June 2018): New games and E3

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

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Defiance 2050

I had originally planned to write about my impressions of the Defiance 2050 beta, but for several reasons, I have not been playing it enough to warrant a whole and substantial blog post about it. During the first beta weekend it was mainly due to pain in my hand. Defiance, thankfully, is a game that … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Defiance 2050

  Sorry, there are no keys left!   The PC beta for the upcoming "reloaded" Defiance, called Defiance2050, is taking place this weekend. The beta is up from today (that is, in something like 11 hours from this post - I'm not exactly sure due to time zones and me not having had my morning … Continue reading Defiance2050 PC Closed Beta Keys Giveaway – closed!

First Impressions: C64 Mini

My brother and I didn't get along when we were kids. However, even we had some things we could do without yelling at each other. It was only a handful of things, but they were there and they are the most precious childhood memories now, of course. One was how he taught me playing table-tennis. … Continue reading First Impressions: C64 Mini

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

Bookahnerk’s honey-mustard glazed chili-duck

You know the drill by now: It's time for a new cooking recipe! This year, I sat back and watched bookahnerk prepare it as he always does this one dish. We had honey-mustard glazed chili-duck with potato wedges and field salad. Ingredients for the duck: - 1 duck breast per person - honey - mustard … Continue reading Bookahnerk’s honey-mustard glazed chili-duck
