Atlas Reactor bonus flux code

Update January 25: The bonus flux event is over, so the code doesn't give you any more bonus flux! First things first: I do not get paid to write about this game!

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Spending money in Trion’s games

A side note first: I am very late with continuing the "Blogging 101" challenges, as I did not have any good ideas for some of the last tasks. Blogging 101 asked me to make a regular column, but I just did not have a good idea until now. I regularly have rants and ramblings in … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Spending money in Trion’s games

WAR f2p… for a short time

As a goodbye, Mythic has now reactivated all accounts and Warhammer Online is free to play until they shut it down on December 18. This is definitely a nice gesture. According to the … Continue reading WAR f2p… for a short time

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (“What to play until GW2 releases”-edition)

Before we start with today's Geekwatch, there's some news about ArenaNet's community managers: We apparently now have community managers tweeting during EU time and Rubi Bayer has joined as new community manager (she was previously working for Massively). It's great to see them "expanding" and hopefully this means that Guild Wars 2 is closer than … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (“What to play until GW2 releases”-edition)

New home in EQ2

I've found a new home - for now. It's been quite some time since a game caught my interest as much as Everquest 2 does right now. Yes, I know, it's ooooold. And the graphics aren't up-to-date anymore. And there are bugs... even though the game is ooooold. And while it is free to play … Continue reading New home in EQ2

First Impressions: Hello Kitty Online

Here it is, the "special MMO" I've mentioned some time ago. I'd actually played the tutorial several months ago but recently went back and played through it again. This has a specific reason: My co-worker loves everything Hello Kitty and I was reminded of this MMO. So this "first impressions review" is dedicated to her … Continue reading First Impressions: Hello Kitty Online
