Thu, 12 Apr 2018 14:19:55 +0000

The first book was a great read, and now the second book will cover more events that “I was there” for. Pretty easy $50 to spend. The kickstarter is already funded, but if you enjoy EVE (either actually playing or … Continue reading

Elder Scrolls Legends latest expansion makes a great game that much betterSynCaine

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 17:17:01 +0000

I’m back on a bit of a kick with Elder Scrolls Legends, as the latest expansion has really changed things up. The biggest change is the ability to build 3-color decks now, up from the previous cap of 2. A … Continue reading

LiF: Guild report April 5th 2018SynCaine

Thu, 05 Apr 2018 15:11:54 +0000

Progress continues in LiF:MMO, though slowed since many of us are approaching a ‘finished’ state. On one hand, that’s bad because making progress is fun. It can be good for those who want to focus on the ‘after progress’ stuff, … Continue reading

Turmoil reviewSynCaine

Fri, 23 Mar 2018 16:40:38 +0000

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of Turmoil and its new DLC for review. Sometimes a game comes along that you didn’t know you wanted to play, but when given the chance, you realize its a title you really, really … Continue reading

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 18:12:48 +0000

I wanted to follow up on the last post, talking about the possibility of bringing instanced battles to EVE, specifically the one major area it would greatly help EVE; attention. For most of EVE’s history, the big events have always … Continue reading

If you go way back in the archives of this blog, I’ve been pretty against the idea of instancing in open world games vs keeping content out in the world. When WoW first started using phasing (personal instances, basically), I … Continue reading

Still coming down at an insane rate, but wanted to get this posted now in case we lose power again. The energy company sent us a very reassuring “you’re most likely f’ed, but hey, we brought in extra trucks and … Continue reading
