I’ve been a gamer for a long time, and have played a number of MMOs in my day. My claim to fame in gaming was Asheron’s Call: This was the direct competitor to Everquest, when MMOs first started to become “mainstream” (before WoW). I enjoyed AC immensely. I spent a lot of time in that ...
As a neurodivergent person, I have a number of unique ways of thinking and processing information. I also, occasionally, suffer from depression. Gaming provides a great respite for me (along with writing code, photography, and a whole bunch of other things). Sometimes, however, I need something a little different.. Something with a delivery that has ...
The Terminator event has been live for a few days now, and I thought I’d share my impressions on it now that I’ve had some time this weekend to actually play it. I’ll do my best to avoid spoilers, for those of you who haven’t given it a shot yet. For those of you who ...

There have been numerous complaints regarding Breakpoint’s gear system. People are even going as far as saying it’s just another The Division loot shooter. Is there any truth ...
Apologies for the lack of new posts; I’m starting a new job in about a week, and have been working on getting my home office set up. Let’s talk about gender in video games. I’m exceedingly excited about Cyberpunk 2077. I’m a big fan of the cyberpunk genre and style; Blade Runner is one of ...
When I picked up Ghost Recon: Wildlands, I didn’t expect it to become a mainstay game for me. Very few of them do; Skyrim (plus Oblivion and Morrowind), Fallout 4 (and 3/New Vegas before that), AC: Odyssey, and Asheron’s Call. That’s about it, honestly.
