  • What I’ve Been Playing

    Last week our family had to face the death of our long time canine companion, and that event weighed me down a lot.  In response this week consisted of a bit less “playing” and a bit more sleeping, though here is my quick list of things I played last week. Everquest 2 I toyed around […]

  • Worth Repeating

    I read something on  Scott Kurtz’s PvP blog today that I feel is worth repeating.  It was in a post about his iPad impressions, and this section about how it works as a comic book reader struck me so much that I wanted to record and repeat it here.

  • Blogging Block

  • No casual play for me

    I wanted to spend a few hours a week with my wife playing together in an MMO; I wanted to experience the game together, encountering and overcoming challenges together.  We were talking about trying several different games including WoW. Then I realized something; I can not casually play World of Warcraft, at least not on […]
