Easter gaming holidays!

I am looking at five days without work. Surprisingly, other than an afternoon spent with my family, there are no plans at all - that I am aware of right now, at least. Which means that I will try not to act like an adult with lots of responsibilities and things that "should be done" … Continue reading Easter gaming holidays!

Blogging 101: Do something new!

I am going to summarize the last few days in one blog post since they were more "behind the scenes" tasks. The second task asked us to change the title of the blog and the tagline. I am more than happy with the current title (simply "Nerdy Bookahs"), so I didn't change that one. The … Continue reading Blogging 101: Do something new!

Blogging 101 and me: Day One

Despite having been active here for a few years already, I signed up for Blogging 101 on WordPress. I like finding new inspiration and since this is not related to gaming, I figured it'd be interesting to see if I can still use the daily tasks for this blog. At least, when the task is … Continue reading Blogging 101 and me: Day One

NaBloPoMo 2014

Just as I did last year, I have joined November's National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) again. Just as last year, I would not have the time for National Novel Writing Month, so I'm going to substitute it again with this initiative. I had wanted to make this "announcement post" yesterday, but then the Trove developers … Continue reading NaBloPoMo 2014

Rebuilding Lion’s Arch…?

When the latest patch got released, I headed over to the forum to read the patch notes as I always do, but when I read the part about Lion's Arch, I logged into the game to see it with my own eyes. I can't tell you how disappointed I was - and yes, I may … Continue reading Rebuilding Lion’s Arch…?

The excitement of getting an expansion

If you're following Rift, you may have noticed that they're handling their second expansion, Plane of Water, differently than they did the previous one or than what other MMO developers are usually doing: Instead of giving you everything at once, they are giving us the expansion piece by piece. The reason they stated is that … Continue reading The excitement of getting an expansion

One month of daily blog posts

I know, I know, I still have one more day to go. However, I have a certain blog post I want to post tomorrow, so I decided to have the "end of November" blog post with a recap today instead. ;) I participated in November's NaBloPoMo as a substitute to NaNoWriMo. I have to say, … Continue reading One month of daily blog posts

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. It got released in May 2012 and so far, I've never seen it cheap … Continue reading Too many games…

Pondering about which profession to choose…

When I wrote about my favourite profession in Guild Wars 2, I was looking at the topic from a pure PvE point of view. This entry is about WvW now. I used to play World of Warcraft on a PvP server and I always hated it. As soon as I got the chance to get … Continue reading Pondering about which profession to choose…

Criticizing Guild Wars 2

DISCLAIMER: If you want to criticize my post, feel free to do so (constructively, of course). However, if you want to do so, please READ it. Especially point 4 and its subject line: I complain about their marketing strategy. I do NOT complain about the skimpy armor. I even say so in the text. Read … Continue reading Criticizing Guild Wars 2
