And now… screenshots.

I’m sick today and don’t feel up to writing much, so let’s just look at some screenshots from my 2014 folder, okay? This happened last night while playing around with my Druid ramp deck. Note that it’s turn 2. Listen, Hearthstone, when I say I want a deck with big creatures I kind of mean LATER in the game okay. My WildStar character in her scientist costume, relaxing during a taxi ride. The game has so many...

Top 3 Favorite TV Seasons

Twitter, I need new tv shows, preferably with a few seasons out. Any suggestions what's hot and sexy atm? — Syl (@Gypsy_Syl) August 4, 2014 Thanks to Syl for inadvertently stumbling on a topic for me to write about in today’s Blaugust entry! Okay, the three best complete seasons of a television show ever as decided entirely by me: 1) Season 4 of Breaking Bad Sorry to start out with a softball, but it would be silly to...

Steam Summer Sale Conclusion

Work has been totally crazy for the past couple of weeks and it looks to be continuing for at least the next few.

I mean yes, we have all bought a lot of games over the past 5 years of sales. In some cases we have bought more games than we could ever...

WildStar Guild // Cat Context 51: Child of Light, TESO, Heroes of the Storm

A few blog readers (hello!) have popped in over at my guild to see if they can join in the fun for WildStar, and of course the answer is yes! We have a bunch of people, myself included, who are psyched for launch. If you, dear reader, are looking for guildies who are smart, funny, and nice, people who don’t use slurs of any kind, and a guild that is focused on taking your time levelling and only very vague plans for raiding in...

Early Access MMOs and Burning Out

One thing I haven’t mentioned yet is that I think these schemes encourage burning out before a game even launches. I’m worried about this particularly in relation to ArcheAge. I know a surprising number of people who bought the $150 alpha access pack. And on the one hand, I’m excited that so many...
