Adventures in Allods and Trove




My partner in crime all dressed to impress.


Lots I've wanted to post about lately but I just keep putting things off with the blog. I suppose I'll do a round up next week. For now I just wanted to share some thoughts on what we've been playing and throw out some impressions. This month has been mostly full of Allods Online and Trove.

Bye Massively, And SOE... General MMO Stuff


I'll miss you massively....


Farewell Joystick
Sad news for Massively and WoW Insider fans as the joystick network is being closed this week. I've been a follower since it was massively.com without the joystick part in there, and it always bothered me that AOL had somehow gotten their hooks in there. What good are they for if they don't mail you coasters anymore? My 18 year old son asked me who AOL was... LOL! Priceless. I have always been a fan of WoW Insider and Massively so it is very sad to hear that they will cease to exist.

Allods Online, A pleasant return.




In my quest to find something casual and laid back to dabble with I decided to play Allods Online again. It has been quite a while and there have been server merges, as well as publisher changes. No longer is it a GPotato game (which is now Webzen). Instead it is part of  My.com and Mail.Ru, which is the Russian Allods developer, an extension of sorts. If you have an account that dates back before the transition, you must fill out a ticket, which appears to take quite awhile. I still have not heard back on my ticket from at least a week ago. However, I wanted to start fresh on the Empire side. No big deal.

Happy New Year! Thoughts On The Coming Year!




Happy New Year! A bit late on getting this post out of my head and onto the website. Sitting down and actually articulating my thoughts isn't always as easy as it used to be. I still enjoy blogging about and playing games but the MMO genre has gotten very stale over the last year. How many times can I regurgitate the same thoughts on the same models? Here's to hoping 2015 is a much better year, 2014 was quite stagnant for MMORPG games. My wish for 2015 is to see INNOVATION and changes in directions for new releases.

Ringing In The New Year





The New Year is almost here. What will you be playing this year? I think I'm looking forward mostly to seeing Landmark go into open beta, possibly Maple Story 2, which looks adorable. I also hope to see Trove grow and improve. I'm hoping for WoW's next patch in the near future as well.

Holiday Treasures



I've been very slack with posts; incoming a critical hit of a post filled with a lot of thoughts and games. Today I'll be trying to catch up and jot down some thoughts as well as sharing some pictures of what I've been playing.
