More Catching Up!

So much to talk about, so little time these days. Or when I do have time, I totally goof off. I have a good hour tonight to jot down some words! We've been busy with lots of family visiting over the past few months and this week I found my father almost unresponsive at his house, but he's alright. My last living grandparent died recently, my grandmother. So when I do sit down at the computer I just want to get lost in a game, lol. I have been trying to get some levels in WoW but that just hasn't been easy...

Good Bye, Wildstar :(

Goodbye, Wildstar. I'll sure miss the humor, the world, the people and the creativity.

Expansion Time!

We're back playing WoW, my son and I. We started right before the expansion hit and gained the mounts from the event. As far as pre-release events this one was rather quiet compared to those in the past. Now that the expansion is here, we're chipping away at the new levels, not rushing at all, trying to just absorb and take in all the new areas. It is really nice to have new zones to explore!

What Makes an MMO Community?

When it comes to gaming communities, few are quite as interesting or unique as those belonging to the Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) genre. While the details of human interactions alter depending upon which game you are playing, the fundamental feelings remain. Although difficult to describe, we’ve always found this to be a mixture of cautious altruism, sociable anonymity and kind wariness, all within the bubble of an invested and yet care-free air. Here, we’ll be taking a look at why this is and what makes the MMO community so unique.

Summer Festivities

Rift has Summerfest going in fulls wing, it crept up on me this year. I didn't know when it was heading to us and then it was here. Also there is another event running, Grim Remembrance. Lots to do with these two events. Tons of neat stuff for my decorating obsession, pics in the next post. Lots and lots of cool stuff to collect this year. I've been playing Rift and LoTRO doing events and collecting stuff. Summertime is fluff heaven for me this year.
