Personal Top 11 of 2018

The last time I've done such a list was in 2016. I started this blog post with the title as "top X", because I have no idea how many games this list will have in the end. When trying to figure out which games should be on the list, my first stop was my Steam … Continue reading Personal Top 11 of 2018

My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

I saw Tyler from Superior Realities's posts about his stable of characters (impressive!) and decided I'd do the same or something similar. After searching through my own blog, I found that I last did that in August 2015. I am going to focus on my most played characters instead of showing my whole stable, as … Continue reading My Mini-Mes (November 2018)

I hate Mines of Moria (IntPiPoMo 1)

...With a passion! I am not a big fan of vertical maps in MMOs to begin with, but if in addition to the design, the map itself is also rather useless, my frustration is doubled. But that's not enough for most of the regions of Mines of Moria. Additionally, you can't exactly see if there … Continue reading I hate Mines of Moria (IntPiPoMo 1)

Blogging 101 Week 2

I am still continuing with "Blogging 101", but it was more behind the scenes at the beginning of last week. I went through our "About" page, but most of it was still accurate, so there weren't too many changes. I did add a text widget in the blog's sidebar with a link to said page, … Continue reading Blogging 101 Week 2

Me and my Mini-Mes…

After I had written about the online game I've been playing the longest, I figured I should "revisit" all my MMO characters. Mentioned and shown below are only the ones I called my "main" in games that I have played for more than one month. I couldn't possibly list and show all the twinks and … Continue reading Me and my Mini-Mes…

GW2: Customize with dyes

One thing that I'm really disappointed with is the limited visual customization of your characters. For example, I bought Flummi a Tiger Charr Backpack. The problem was that I still only had a rare back item. So I spent 5 gold and 5 guild commendations and bought the Guild Assassin Backpack to put the look … Continue reading GW2: Customize with dyes

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)
