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


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


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

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

(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

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.

Monogamy and the MMO player
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 August 2014, 9:00 am
Probably one of the most common questions I’m asked is something along the lines of, “How can you play so many MMOs?  How do you have the time?  How can you stay interested in all of them?”  Well, one question … Continue reading

Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 August 2014, 12:00 pm
We begin the next quest in the Wheloon prison chain.  I’m summoned to the city-prison to interrogate this prisoner who’s proven to be more bother than he’s worth.  He’s pretty open with me, saying that he used to be a … Continue reading


One thing we forget
Posted by Bio Break [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 August 2014, 11:19 am
When people like to work themselves up in a tizzy talking about how MMOs are dying or whatever (despite objective, observable evidence to the contrary), one thing that’s sometimes mentioned is how there are only “so many” MMO players and … Continue reading
