The Paint on Phoebe is Barely Dry and CCP is Already Talking About Rhea… and Clones
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 November 2014, 12:00 pm
The Phoebe expansion just went live on Tuesday and CCP is still closing loopholes in the system… I think they fixed the bit where you could erase jump fatigue via clone jumping, and the doomsday timer on titans being reset via gate jumps is probably gone now too… but they still found the time to […]


A Vaguely Dissatisfying BlizzCon… For Me
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 November 2014, 1:00 pm
If I were to take at random a set of video game genres and stack rank them from those that interest me most to those that interest me least, it might look a little something like this: MMORPG Action RPG RTS Online CCG MOBA FPS That sort of defines what I am looking for from […]


A Decade in Post-Cataclysm Norrath
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 November 2014, 1:00 pm
We are in the midst of a few different EverQuest II moments, and I am going to mash them together into one post as they are all mildly related. The first is that today EverQuest II is launching a new expansion, the Altar of Malice. The expansion is only launching for All Access subscribers.  You […]


The Darkened Sea Brings EverQuest to Level 105
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 November 2014, 5:00 pm
Leaving aside the whole “launching two days before Warlords of Draenor” aspect of things, who at SOE decided to launch both Norrathian expansions on the same day?  Have you no pity for your IT people? So we have the Altar of Malice expansion on the EverQuest II front, which I mentioned in the previous post, […]


Final Decisions Before Warlords of Draenor
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2014, 1:00 pm
I have a seemingly simple decision to make about Warlords of Draenor, which is, to put it bluntly, “Who goes first?” Who will I push through the dark portal into Draenor, which character of mine will be the first to see what is to be seen in the new expansion? In the past, there has […]


Warlords of Draenor Day
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 November 2014, 11:00 am
The date has finally arrived.  Warlords of Draenor, the long awaited 5th expansion for World of Warcraft has landed.  And if, like me, you were somewhat underwhelmed by the attention the game got inside of BlizzCon, rest assured that outside Blizzard was spending a lot of time drawing attention to the game. The expansion launched […]

Collecting Frostweave and Achievements
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 November 2014, 1:00 pm
It was just Potshot and I again on Saturday night.  We were both on early and, as the appointed hour approached, it became clear that it would just be the two of us. As it happened, we were both tooling about in Northrend doing the ground work for a couple of guild achievements. He was […]

October in Review
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 October 2014, 2:00 pm
The Site Not much to complain about this month.  I changed the site theme a few times one weekend, but still cannot find one that is better than the current theme on all fronts. I converted a couple of much-used tags into categories on the blog, so if you want to pull up, as an […]


Feythabolis and the Fight at ZS-2LT
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 November 2014, 1:00 pm
The first deployment behind enemy lines went well enough.  We dropped into their territory, blew up infrastructure, shot the locals, and dragged back a bundle of loot in haulers we had stolen along the way.  It was a training exercise in order to learn how to run such an operation as much as anything else.  […]


Phoebe Arrives in New Eden
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 November 2014, 1:00 pm
It has been more than a month since CCP Greyscale first announced, via a Dev Blog, the changes to long distance travel coming with Phoebe.  Now the expansion is here, and I hear it took longer to deploy than past expansions because it had to take gates. As I predicted back then, despite the uproar […]


What Will BlizzCon 2014 Bring?
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 November 2014, 1:00 pm
BlizzCon is just a couple days away at this point and my mind is starting to wander onto what might be on display for the big event. Blizzard is at a pretty high point right now.  The Activision-Blizzard report for the 3rd quarter of 2014 is just out and there were record profits, the boost […]

Song of the South
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 October 2014, 12:32 am
Lots of big shiny things to shoot way down  in the southeast corner of New Eden.  Cue Jaws sound track… Of course, they aren’t all there anymore. I do not think I have ever been this far south on the map.  New space to see.


The Birth of a Pipe Bombing Campaign
Posted by The Ancient Gaming Noob [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 October 2014, 1:00 pm
When it comes to watching gaming related videos on YouTube, I must admit that I do not have much patience.  Small screen video, bad audio commentary, and a general inability to grab and hold the interest of any viewer not captivated by shiny colors and an overbearing sound track pushes me to reject just about […]
