Mourning

So here we are, on the eve of what Blizzard would want to call their latest, if not greatest, accomplishment. Streamlined gameplay, player garrisons, a host of “quality of life improvements” and another fabulous 10 levels of storyline questing. Great, right? I just cancelled my sub. No, I’m not one of the Vanilla Mafia here… Read More Mourning

Geekiest?

Over time I have used this blog to come out about a lot of my most geeky hobbies. I’m going to add another one to the list now, possibly the geekiest ever, but I’ll leave it to you to decide. In between my other computer gaming, both online and off, there is another little gem… Read More Geekiest?

If we didn’t have enough people, we all had friends in different guilds we could ask along.  If someone… Read More Karma

I’ve decided to take a break from Warcraft. It shouldn’t have been a surprise really. They just released a major patch with loads of new content. Historically, expansions and I just never seem to get along. The problem is it seems the only acceptable way of approaching new content, and this is hardly limited to… Read More Offline

Tactics

I love my guild. Not because we’re particularly good at anything. In fact, mainly because we’re happy to revel in our moments of gross incompetence. I’ve been assured it’s merely a coincidence, but the Rise of Legends does indeed shorten to RofL, and with me in the raid team as a holiday substitute for the… Read More Tactics
