Paeroka’s Ponderings: Goodbye, Rift?

As some of you know, I love Trion Worlds and the games they have created - well, most of them, at least. I have not always agreed with their decisions, but I don't expect to do so. They are in it to earn money, after all (employees want that to afford a roof above their … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Goodbye, Rift?

Finally level 50 again

I've finally made it to level 50 on Rift Prime. That is after the expansion launched which raises the maximum level to 60. And it was mostly because I made the last two levels by doing quests in the two new starter regions of the expansions. I would say that it took me so long … Continue reading Finally level 50 again

First Impressions: Parkasaurus (Early Access!)

Parkasaurus is a tycoon game where you get to build a dinosaur park. The game comes with cute comic graphics, but it has the depth that one would expect from a typical park-building game - or will have them at some point. It just launched into Early Acess today (with a price of 19.99 €), … Continue reading First Impressions: Parkasaurus (Early Access!)

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

The Return of Torchlight! (Blaugust Post 7)

When I read that Runic Games, the developing company of the Torchlight series didn't exist anymore back in November 2017, I was rather sad. This meant, after all, that there would be no more Torchlight games. Their last game was Hob. An adventure game with a new IP and more of the puzzle kind. It's … Continue reading The Return of Torchlight! (Blaugust Post 7)

Please give me Rift Wars 2 (Blaugust Post 6)

If Rift and Guild Wars 2 had a baby, I would probably end up with my perfect MMO. Both games have features that I really love while also missing the mark in other areas. Together, however, it'd be great. I love Rift's open world. Switching between continents gives you a loading screen, but other than … Continue reading Please give me Rift Wars 2 (Blaugust Post 6)

“I’m sick”-games: ARPGs (Blaugust Post 5)

Yesterday, we went to our dance school and took two classes. I felt fine and even after the 2.5 hours of dancing, I could have still continued! So it came as a bit of a shock when I woke up during the night with an aching throat and this morning, my whole body was aching. … Continue reading “I’m sick”-games: ARPGs (Blaugust Post 5)

Good old games… that you never played (Blaugust post 4)

Maybe you were too young when game XY originally released. Or you weren't into games then. Or you just completely missed game XY and never even knew it existed. Or (insert any other reason for why you didn't play game XY when it originally released). Do you know such a game? Do you think you … Continue reading Good old games… that you never played (Blaugust post 4)

Ooh! Dinosaurs! (Blaugust Post 3)

Some time ago, I caught a stream about Jurassic World Evolution. I hadn't even known this game existed until that point! I still remember the first Jurassic Park film and that I had just been old enough to watch it when it came out here. Unfortunately, I couldn't actually see it in the cinema - … Continue reading Ooh! Dinosaurs! (Blaugust Post 3)

Real Life happening (Blaugust Post 2)

I can't really make a post about gaming when I haven't played many games, right? We've had our first anniversary last weekend and since we also moved to Hamburg earlier this year, we decided to take this chance and spend a long 4-day-weekend "exploring" this city. I'm using paraphrases here because bookahnerk lived here with … Continue reading Real Life happening (Blaugust Post 2)
