Evaluating WildStar’s scientist path
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 October 2014, 9:00 am
Probably my biggest regret in WildStar is that I ended up comitting to the scientist path for my main character.  It’s far too late to reroll, so I’m stuck with it.  Sure, I could just ignore it, but I have … Continue reading

Absentee Report: Guild Wars 2 and LOTRO
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 October 2014, 12:00 pm
I always wonder and occasionally fret if Bio Break readers keep track of what I’m playing — and what I *was* playing and am currently not, especially if that’s seen as an indictment of those games.  It’s a silly worry, … Continue reading


Poll: What fall MMO expansions are you planning to play?
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 October 2014, 9:00 am
There are no less than six big MMO expansions coming out between now and the end of the year, and I’m curious which — if any — you’re planning to play.  Let’s take it to the polls and vote for … Continue reading

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

Poll: What do you like to read on Bio Break?
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 October 2014, 12:37 pm
This poll is more for curiosity’s sake than a serious research tool to modify my future posts.  I’m just wonder what you, as a reader, like to see on Bio Break.  Check any and all that apply!


Friday Fluff: WildStar, RIFT, and TSW
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 October 2014, 9:00 am
My new graphics card should be arriving today, and not a moment too soon!  I’m not overly thrilled having to use my laptop for everything, although it’s performed admirably well in the meantime.  If I can get it up and … Continue reading

And for fun, a fan cover of the theme done on a church organ in Germany:

RIFT: The many lives of Deltavee
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 October 2014, 9:50 am
With my main computer (hopefully) temporarily out of commission, I’ve been resorting to using my laptop at night.  It’s not as much of a powerhorse, so I pretty much just played RIFT last night and finished up Scarwood Reach while … Continue reading

(You can follow my playthrough of The Secret World on Bio Break’s projects page!) Something Wicked (investigation mission) This is a pretty neat investigation mission that was incredibly glitchy back when the game first launched.  Anyway, Norma’s second and final … Continue reading


VGM of the Day: “Smooth” from WildStar
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 September 2014, 2:32 pm
You can’t see me, but I’m standing and saluting this track.  It’s WildStar done 80s style, full-blown synth and everything.  LOVE IT.
