The Walking Dead: In Harm’s Way thoughts
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2014, 9:00 am
If your path is predestined by the game gods (devs), does that mean that your choices don’t matter?  Or does that mean that they matter more than ever, because how you get there is more important than where you end … Continue reading


WildStar tip: Constant casting
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 July 2014, 5:01 pm

WildStar: The garage sale that is my house
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 July 2014, 7:50 am
This is the state of my house right now in WildStar.  No, it is not clever feng shui that will make sense the more you look at it.  It is a helter-skelter pit of jumbled despair.  And yes, that’s a … Continue reading

Am I looking forward to upcoming games at all right now? No.
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 July 2014, 10:37 am
As a gamer, I have to admit that I feel pretty sated.  Even if no new MMOs came out again, I think I’d have enough variety and choices to keep me occupied until I was long into a nursing home.  … Continue reading

WildStar: Laying out the blueprints to a new life
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 July 2014, 8:01 am
What?  Stop looking at me like that.  Of COURSE I rerolled over the weekend, because apparently I am addicted to running the 1-20 content in WildStar ad naseum.  This is, what, the sixth such post announcing a new character in … Continue reading
