Why this PvPer doesn’t miss PvP servers

As habitual as I am, I tend to re-boot ye olde’ World of Warcraft as a time killer since New England winters can sometimes put Hoth to shame. #excuses So here I am, back for Legion after a two year hiatus. I’ve been spending my time split between two servers that couldn’t be more different…

Remembering Guild Wars – Happy 10 Year Anniversary

The original Guild Wars was and probably forever will be my favorite game ever. As much as I enjoy Guild Wars 2 these days, it still doesn’t hold a candle to what GW1 meant to me. I was a high school senior when Guild Wars was announced – myself and a handful of friends played in…

ArenaNet Delivers on Heart of Thorns Hype at PaxEast

It’s been awhile since ArenaNet has pulled this much punch at PaxEast – and what a comeback! I was absolutely delighted to have taken even a small part in the celebration of Guild Wars 2’s first expansion, Heart of Thorns, which was announced recently at this winter’s PaxSouth. Arenanet delivered on promises to have pieces…

League of Legends URF review and why it SHOULD NOT be a permanent mode

Let’s face it – Ultra Rapid Fire was probably one of the most amazing things to come out of Riot recently. This is in no way  discrediting their other, wonderful products and features – but for an April Fool’s Joke, URF just had something magical that the community perhaps didn’t know they wanted. I had…

Thursday is always the unofficially official “Day 1” for any expo – most attendees have landed and checked in and are looking for ways to connect and have a little fun before the actual convention starts. There were a slew of options for anybody who wanted to have a good time yesterday! I partook in…

PaxEast Report 2014 – Pre-Pax Shenanigans Part. 1

One of the biggest pros to being a local in a host city (or earlybird) for PAX is the ability to partake in all the great pre-expo events put on by the community – and boy do they know how to kick things off right! There’s a plethora of pre-PAX events to go to, more…

League of Legends Vel’koz Review

With Vel’koz being free last week, I finally got to play him a few times in ARAM and found myself surprisingly delighted with his unique play style. I was skeptical at first since Riot pins him as difficult to play, but after a few rounds of messing with his combo order it turns out he’s…

EvE Online – Let’s Talk About EvE Appeal

EVE Online is an interesting game. It’s been called everything from the greatest sci-fi game to ever exist to the world’s most graphic intensive spreadsheet. Developers CCP brag 500,000 active members (average 30-50k concurrent players)  which is impressive for a universe of this size. There is only one, extremely vast server (the galaxy) where players…
