  • Gaming SitRep

    The Situation Returning to limited play time that comes with work was a bit jarring.   Over the holidays I could slip off almost anytime and sneak some play time in, while being at work for 10-12 hours a day limits that dramatically.  I have settled back into a good routine and am wonderfully grateful for […]

  • EQ2 “ugly” and “good”

    After three weeks of playing I have found several items that have struck me as much better than my previous impressions led me to believe. Though before I start that list I wanted to re-iterate the three items I feel EQ2 is most ‘hurt’ by.  These items are subjective, of course but I wanted to […]

  • My look back at 2009

    I thought a lot this week about my 2009 games of the year, as I saw gaming sites all over the internet posting their lists in various different formats.   I was going to skip the whole thing, because I did not want to be a “me too” poster.  Then I took a pause today and […]

  • Back into the Everquest 2 Breach

    Yes it is true I am playing Everquest 2 once more. It all started a couple of weeks ago my wife and I chatted once again about playing an MMO together.  I thought for a bit about trying Everquest 2 with her, and when I looked at my account status I discovered Sony had reactivated […]

Then I realized something; I can not casually play World of Warcraft, at least not on […]

  • More Modern Warfare 2

    I have not been a competitive MP FPS player since my quake 3 days, so I am as surprised as anyone at the amount of CoD:MW2 I have been playing. It has some secret sauce tickles my gaming fancy enough that even though I am terrible (playing on the 360 makes me even worse), I […]

  • Thanksgiving Gaming

    This is a great year for Thanksgiving Gaming, one of the fullest I can recall in a long time. This week as I have been squeezing game time I have had to choose between several great games; Dragon Age, Assassin’s Creed 2, and Modern Warfare 2. It could have been worse I could have bought […]

  • Dragon Age and Modern Warfare

    Over the last 10 days I have played a lot of Dragon Age, and enjoyed every minute. It is a fantastic game, full of so many things I like. I am sure I will write up all of my thoughts and comments after I finish this first play through.  All I wanted to say […]
