World of Warcraft | Out of the Garrison

When Warlords first came out, I thought garrisons were the coolest thing since sliced bread. I couldn’t stop logging in. I was there through remote desktop every chance I could to send my followers out and gathering up resources. Jump ahead a few months – most of my followers and buildings maxed out, I’m turning …

World of Warcraft Solo Runs – Ulduar

I ran Ulduar on my warlock yesterday, and had success for the most part. I’ve never been there before, so the mechanics were all new to me. I started out on 25-man. Flame Leviathan took some research to figure out. Outside of a vehicle, I wasn’t able to do much to him before he took …

World of Warcraft | Waiting for Warlords

I went back to World of Warcraft a few weeks ago, and I’ve been having a blast. I had un-subbed for a few months, and wandered into other games for a bit. I still play Hearthstone every week, as I really like being able to drop in for a quick game here and there (they …

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. …

Wrapping Things Up

Skulfrak prepares to go back on the shelf for a while I only have a few days left on my World of Warcraft subscription, and while I can still play, I haven’t logged in for about two weeks now. I popped in this morning to clean out the mailbox, as I’ve canceled my account for …

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 …

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 …

Hunter Time!

I’m pretty sure my time in WoW for the next few months is limited. I’ve pre-ordered Old Republic, it’s paid for, and I’m just waiting for a beta invite.  I’m fairly certain I’ll spend quite a bit of time establishing myself over there. A week from today is Blizzcon, and they’ll almost certainly announce the …
