Into the Arena – Hearthstone

I played a bit more Hearthstone yesterday, clearing a few quests, and made enough gold to pay the 150 coin entry fee. The arena is sort of like a booster draft, so everyone has an equal chance to build a deck from a good assortment of cards. You don’t get to keep them at the …

Waiting for Wildstar

The next game on the horizon I’ve got my eye on is Wildstar Online. It’s probably got game-play very similar to WoW, but it looks like it has a really fun style to it with a lot of humor, which I find very appealing. It’s almost cartoon-like in appearance, which to me is better than …

Hearthstone | Beta Impressions

I finally secured an invitation to the beta for Blizzard’s new game, Hearthstone. I’ve played Magic: the Gathering for many years, so I’m very familiar with how collectible card games work, and they’ve done a great job at bringing the format to the screen. Probably a much better job than Wizards has done with Magic …

Out of the Game – 1 Month

I’ve been away from Wow for an entire month now, and am not really missing it all that much. There are some stray thoughts now and then, and I’m sure I’ll drift back in at some point, but I’m thinking I might start fresh if I do, with a new character on a new server. …

Game Over, Man!

I’ve gone and cancelled my World of Warcraft account again. I’m sure at some point I’ll come back, but this expansion has been a bit frustrating for me. There was a lot to do, no doubt. Pandaria is a beautiful continent with a lot of explore, and full of lore. The route they chose for …

Diablo 3 Thoughts

In the gap between WoW‘s Cataclysm and Mists of Pandaria expansions, I took some time to indulge in a slight distraction, also from Blizzard – Diablo 3.  I have the annual pass for WoW, so it’s not costing me anything to play, and I don’t have to stop playing WoW to do it.  I heard …

Olias starts his run!

I got my early access invite to The Old Republic yesterday, and had just enough time to make a few characters. My new main is a Jedi Consular named Olias on the RP server Vrook Lamar.  This morning I got him to level 3, taking it nice and slow.  For me, I like to absorb …

WoW – Transmogrification

Patch 4.3 has gone live, and the first thing I did was visit the Transmogrification guys to get my gear redone.  It turns out I have a lot less things in my bank than I thought I did.  All my major toons had some things to improve upon.  My main, Skulfrak, had a full set …

Old Republic – More beta shots

The big weekend beta is over now, and I had a blast getting my first experience in The Old Republic.  In the last hour, I abandoned my mission (so as not to spoil the story) and headed off-word, making my way to the Republic fleet, and then to Coruscant.  It was all very well done, …
