Diaries From Velia: Fishing Black Desert (PS4)

(Disclaimer: I was provided a review copy of Black Desert on PS4. This has no bearing on my coverage.) One thing I love about Black Desert is the sheer amount of stuff to do and the complicated nature of it. Let’s take fishing for example. You go into Velia which is one of the first […]

Diaries From Azeroth: We Only Said Goodbye With Words

I died a hundred times. In the six hours that I have put into my Tauren druid over the past two days, I found myself in the same frame of mind going into WOW Classic as I did with Old School RuneScape many years ago: A lot of enthusiasm and confidence that this iteration will […]

Diaries From Washington DC: The Division 2 First Ten Levels

The Division 2 is a very Division-esque title, which is going to be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you approach the franchise. If you like your sequels to take the prior title and expand upon it, you’re golden. If you hated everything about The Division down to its core mechanics, […]

Diaries From H1Z1: I Walked 100 Levels, And I Won’t Walk 100 More

I promise this is my last piece about H1Z1 for a while, because I officially quit. Last week I reached the promised land, the deluxe apartment in the sky if you will. I hit level 100 on the H1Z1 battle pass. That’s right, praise me for accomplishing in roughly two months what most of you […]

Diaries From H1Z1: How Does It Get Continually Worse?

I want to talk about H1Z1 on the Playstation 4. H1Z1 has become the Battle Royale of choice for me, partially because I have invested enough time and money ($20) into the game that I’d rather not start anew on another BR title and partially because I like the simplistic gameplay. I don’t have the […]

Diaries From Guild Wars 2: It’s Time To Kill Kralkatorrik

“I don’t know.” (Editor’s note: Spoilers ahead for the latest Guild Wars 2 episode; All Or Nothing. If you don’t want the ending spoiled, stop reading now.) I don’t know. The final words spoken by The Commander as the screen fades to black and the latest episode in the Guild Wars 2 living story comes […]

Diaries From RuneScape: Old School Mobile Beta

I went into Old School RuneScape’s mobile beta with two questions in mind: How well this game would run on my Google Pixel (original, non XL), how well it would perform in my office which is a lead-wrapped dead zone, and how many seconds it would take my Pixel to be drained of its battery. […]

Diaries From Gielinor: Tuska Event Fatigue

As I work on this piece, my character is toiling away semi-afk balancing on Tuska’s spine for agility experience and Tuska fragments that can be turned in for points. At 8:44 am, more than halfway through the day in server-time, the overall contribution isn’t at 50%. It isn’t even close. RuneScape’s third world event is […]

Diaries From RuneScape: January In Review

January was a good month for RuneScape, even if you weren’t a fan of the heavy cash shop promotions. As I do each month, I’d like to give my thoughts on each week’s updates. 1. Boss Pets Boss pets for me will fall under one of the more important updates of the year next to […]

Diaries From H1Z1: The Apocalypse Cometh

Generations from now, humanity’s survivors will look back and wonder how did we fail? What caused the virus that wiped out 90% of the world’s population? Was it a plague, disease, or wrath of god? No. The fall of society came when Taylor Swift announced that she was retiring from music and would only release […]
