The World of Warcraft zone name generator
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 October 2014, 12:00 pm

Let me just check my (play) schedge
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 October 2014, 12:00 pm

RIFT: Dancing with blades
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 October 2014, 9:00 am

Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 October 2014, 9:00 am

RIFT: Pile up on the poor Dwarf, why don’t you
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 October 2014, 12:00 pm
Even though RIFT utilizes the older tab-targeting, global cooldown combat system, I’ve been enjoying it as though having a long conversation with an old friend.  Action combat is well and good, but sometimes you want to think during combat and … Continue reading
