Action RPGs and me (Blaugust Post 12)

I finally finished playing Torchlight 2 not too long ago. In general, I really liked the game. The pets are cute, but useful, although mostly to send them off sell your found items and bring back more health potions.

Too many games…

I'm currently waiting for Diablo 3 to arrive. Unfortunately, it seems it won't be here tomorrow, but hopefully on Thursday then. I got the game during (German) Amazon's Cyber Monday Week... how silly is that, by the way? Cyber Monday Week.

First things first, I found it amusing to read a dispute between several players in the Warhammer Online forum. The short of it: Mythic was at GamesDay in the USA (I forgot which city it … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (August 1)

SWTOR release on the horizon & my thoughts about it.

E3 is over and some new videos, cinematics and information about Star Wars: The Old Republic and its content were released. While I absolutely understand the hype when I watch those very detailed cinematics and enjoy every glimpse of story they do contain, I am also a little worried about the low amount of information … Continue reading SWTOR release on the horizon & my thoughts about it.
