Quest for Glory: Robbing little old ladies
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 20 August 2014, 12:00 pm
(This is part of my journey playing through Quest for Glory 1. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) After doing a little bit of reading up on this game, I decided that I don’t want the … Continue reading


What WildStar should be doing with paths
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 August 2014, 9:00 am
One of WildStar’s big talking points prior to launch was its path system.  This was supposed to be a “second class” that you could level up independantly by pursuing a specific type of content tailored to your playstyle (fighting, exploring, … Continue reading


Quest for Glory: Raking horse poop
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 August 2014, 12:00 pm
(This is part of my journey playing through Quest for Glory 1. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) I mentioned this a couple of times back in my Space Quest and King’s Quest playthroughs, but the … Continue reading


Month of DDO: There is a dungeon inside of this cart
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2014, 9:00 am
An occasional problem that I run into with LOTRO is that the game will spend way, way too long loading my character into the game… and eventually quit to desktop as a result.  I’m finding even more problems with DDO.  … Continue reading


WildStar: Home epic home
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 August 2014, 1:09 pm
Just a quick post to say that I had a really terrific night in WildStar yesterday: I blasted through about a third of Galeras and an entire level, really getting into the groove of my Engineer and her eternally buggy … Continue reading


The making of a Battle Bards episode
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 August 2014, 9:00 am
Our going-on-two-years-now Battle Bards podcast is probably one of the most involved of my various web projects and a true labor of love from Syl, Steff, and myself.  We are nuts about MMO music and have a grand ol’ time … Continue reading


WildStar: Putting a bow on Galeras
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 August 2014, 10:56 am
My goal during this past weekend was to put a wrap on Galeras with my Engineer and move on.  Galeras isn’t a horrible zone… but it isn’t my favorite, either.  The “pretty” parts don’t really stir any feelings in my … Continue reading


Quest for Glory: Packing for adventure!
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 August 2014, 12:00 pm
(This is part of my journey playing through Quest for Glory 1. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) It’s getting late and so I trundle on back to the inn, putting my plans to fully explore … Continue reading


LOTRO: Touring Dol Amroth
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 August 2014, 9:00 am
It was amusingly coincidental that one of my kinnies posted the gushing quote on the right-hand side there about LOTRO while I was taking a leisurely tour through the Gondorian city of Dol Amroth.  Word for word, that’s pretty much … Continue reading


Quote of the Day: Stretch goals
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 August 2014, 3:32 pm
“For those of you who are unfamiliar, a ‘stretch goal’ is an improvement the developer will add to the game if you pay the ransom.” ~ I Hate MMORPGs


WildStar: The magical floating buffalo of Galeras
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 August 2014, 9:00 am
I don’t like to peg myself with labels, but I’m partial to taking off and just wandering during an average evening of adventure.  I like seeing what’s around the corner and taking trips to places that are devoid of meaty … Continue reading


Quest for Glory 1: Magical adventure
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 August 2014, 12:00 pm
(This is part of my journey playing through Quest for Glory 1. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) Even though I played King’s Quest and Space Quest (and the first Police Quest) as a kid, I … Continue reading

Battle Bards Episode 33: Allods Online
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 August 2014, 9:00 am
As we’ve proven before on Battle Bards, free-to-play and foreign doesn’t mean that the soundtrack is going to be lame.  On the contrary, scores like Allods Online is what gets us out of bed in the morning, pumped for another … Continue reading


Six things about the Atari 2600 that I forgot until now
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2014, 9:00 am
I was watching a retro review of an Atari 2600 game the other day that unlocked several memories I had of that quirky first console.  In no particular order, here they are: 1. The games were very colorful and bold … Continue reading


Shadow Realms? Yes please.
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2014, 2:54 pm
Just a couple of weeks ago on Massively Speaking, Bree and I were kicking around ideas from tabletop RPGs that we’d like to see brought into MMOs.  I expressed a desire that I’ve long had, which is to allow players … Continue reading


WildStar: The challenge challenge
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2014, 9:00 am
Last weekend I temporarily (?) retired my medic to pick back up my newbie Engineer in WildStar.  Now that I know the game better and feel more comfortable in it, playing this class has become easier, especially in regard to … Continue reading


Guild Wars 2: Intermission (let’s all go to the lobby)
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2014, 12:00 pm
Yesterday Guild Wars 2 came out with its fourth episode of season two of the living story (ugh, there has to be a quicker way of typing that), but also made a couple of announcements.  The first is that after … Continue reading


Is it just me…
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2014, 4:12 pm
Or does he look like a voodoo shrunken head (with body attached)? Worst hairstyle ever.


Month of DDO: Sewer surfing
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 August 2014, 3:00 pm
After capturing, losing, recapturing, and relosing this Shar priest, I’m about ready to throw my hands up in exasperation and let him go already.  The Wheloon prison storyline in Dungeons and Dragons Online isn’t as willing to do so, however.  … Continue reading


The best thing I’ve EVER seen in LOTRO
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 August 2014, 9:03 pm
Halfway there… halfway there… I stood around waiting, but no dice.  This game’s all tease.  Still, it made me happy.


Sanitarium: The circus of fools
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 August 2014, 9:00 am
(This is part of my journey playing through Sanitarium. You can follow the entire series on the Nostalgia Lane page.) The gargoyle in the fountain at the asylum not only sent Max into a bizarre circus, but it put him in … Continue reading


Screenshot Sunday
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 August 2014, 10:00 am
One screenshot for each game I’m playing! Riding my goat up a stream in LOTRO… Doing combat math in DDO… Cheering in WildStar… Tripping big-time in Guild Wars 2… …and stumbling upon certain doom in The Secret World.
