Ask Nerdy Bookahs: Guild Wars 2 Edition (September 2015)

It's time for another "Ask Nerdy Bookahs". We have looked through the search terms that led people to our blog for which we know we do not have fitting answers in our blog posts and we're trying to cover those topics here now. For better readability, I am changing the plain "search terms" to correct … Continue reading Ask Nerdy Bookahs: Guild Wars 2 Edition (September 2015)

So this was Blaugust 2015 – Blaugust Day 31

I did this kind of challenge the first time back in November 2013. I tried it again in November 2014, but did not reach my goal and in fact, gave up on November 13 already. :p The latter is also why I decided relatively late to join Blaugust. My first thought was: Yeah, no way … Continue reading So this was Blaugust 2015 – Blaugust Day 31

GW2: Dyes and staff… (Blaugust Day 29)

What an exciting week for Guild Wars 2! This week, Guild Wars 2 turned 3 years old and to celebrate this, from this point on, all characters will get a very special birthday presents on their own 3rd birthday (yes, this means the character has to be 3 years old, not your account): The Celebratory … Continue reading GW2: Dyes and staff… (Blaugust Day 29)

Best “Main Theme” from a PC game – Blaugust Day 25

Bookahnerk was preparing our "pen and paper" roleplaying session and played around with the music. He's going to add background music and mostly uses songs from the various game soundtracks that we have acquired over time. He also uses several programmes together to add e.g. thunderstorm and various other ambient noises where it fits. So, … Continue reading Best “Main Theme” from a PC game – Blaugust Day 25

The Repopulation – Quick first impression (Blaugust Day 24)

The Repopulation is currently on sale (until September 4) and you may be wondering whether it's worth those 14.99 € (or whatever it is for you). I bought Early Access back in February and I really wish I could tell you all about my impressions now and whether I like the game or not. But … Continue reading The Repopulation – Quick first impression (Blaugust Day 24)

Keeping my blogroll up-to-date – Blaugust Day 23

I know I often neglect my blogroll, but it became quite clear when Blaugust started and I saw the amount of familiar names... only to realize that while I do know them and more or less regularly read their blogs (whenever my time allows, at least), I never added them to our blogroll. This is … Continue reading Keeping my blogroll up-to-date – Blaugust Day 23

Wildstar: loyalty and cosmic points – Blaugust Day 22

I saw Missy's post about Wildstar yesterday and was a bit surprised when I saw the table she had added about loyalty rewards. One of my concerns about Wildstar's switch to free to play was the part where they had stated in their FAQ that unless you paid a sub, you could not create a … Continue reading Wildstar: loyalty and cosmic points – Blaugust Day 22

The game I didn’t think I would like (Blaugust Day 21)

Another Blaugust writing prompt today. This time, from Gryph: "Has there ever been a game you were 100% sure you wouldn't like, despite never playing it, that you later discovered was actually pretty interesting/good/better than you thought? What were your assumptions, and in what ways were they mistaken?" Two games come to my mind, but … Continue reading The game I didn’t think I would like (Blaugust Day 21)

Let me show you all my mini-mes – Blaugust Day 20

Apparently, it has been almost two years since I have last shown you all my virtual "mini-me"s. I figured that Blaugust is the perfect month to give you an updated version. Especially since I picked up several new games in the meantime and decided to drop some others. And, you know, I need to fill … Continue reading Let me show you all my mini-mes – Blaugust Day 20
