I had no Idea

Minecraft is an odd game.  Everyone speaks about it (or used to), it is not in one of the genres I generally dislike (i.e. FPS), it is cheap and yet I’ve never played it. If I was sensible I would just buckle down and take a look, if only to broaden my horizon. It seems […]

This first episode of a Fallout web-series looks quite promising indeed:

Snape Kills Trinity with Rosebud

I came back home from the sunny glory that was Puglia on Saturday only to move straight on to some bars with friends. That left me slightly tired the other day so I was happy to discover that there were a lot of videos available from the League of Legends tournament at the last Intel […]

Vacation

I’ll be catching some much-needed sun in the next two weeks and have not prepared anything to keep you guys entertained in the mean time. Somehow summer doesn’t supply me with a whole ot of topics to write about. I hope y’all don’t just run away and I’ll see you again in two weeks with […]

Morality Gear

So there’s going to be alignment-bound gear in Star Wars: The Old Republic, as well as ability that are unlocked depending on your alignment. In a single-player game I’d be absolutely fine with that, I’d even applaud it. (Though, frankly, there is often too little in the form of rewards for people who choose to […]

Turbine doesn’t Want my Money

Longasc was so nice to give me detailed tips on how to continue my LotRO “career” over on Google+ following my last post. While I did (and still have) various reasons for not wanting to subscribe to the game, I eventually decided to do so on Saturday. I’ll be on holidays for two weeks starting […]

Outlevelling content in LotRO

I’ve finally managed to get back into Lord of the Rings Online somewhat and out of the zone I’d been stuck in for ages. I even used the item shop, though I didn’t spend any money yet but used the points I got for owning both expansions instead. Those points got me a new zone […]

Quote of the Day

“It’s easy to imagine that a system like this [the one in Skyrim] in Oblivion or Fallout could have shaved hours off the average player’s actual game-time. As it is, it saves valuable seconds in my hands-on, and seconds are my currency today, so thank you to whomever at Bethesda designed the inventory.” – Tom Bramwell, Eurogamer
