Time to Loot Journal: March 2020

What a month. It feels like over the course of March, the entire landscape and texture of the world has changed. It wasn’t all that long ago that the whole COVID-19 situation started to feel a little more real to me. Fast forward a mere four days beyond that post, and New Zealand officially announced

A Plague Tale: Innocence

A Plague Tale: Innocence has been on my list of goals for the last two months, and it came veeeery very close to being three. But last night I booted back into it, and didn’t leave until I was finished. Er.. Around 1am. Which is not an ideal time to finish up a gaming session

No Place for Old PvPers

Mailvaltar recently wrote about the cool stuff that just doesn’t happen in ‘safe’ MMORPGs and it got me to thinking about days gone by when I was really into open-world PvP MMOs myself. It seems like so long ago. And I suppose that’s because it is so long ago. I wrote a little while ago

Taking Out the Warlords of New York

Even with a fairly significant dip in gaming time lately, this is a post I could have done several nights ago. The actual story content for The Division 2’s expansion Warlords of New York is not terribly long. A beeline through the critical path would surely clock in at less than 10 hours. That isn’t

Too Old For This?

This is hardly a new topic of conversation I would imagine. I’d be willing to bet most of the game blogging community has had something to say on the matter at one point in time or another. The subject? Feeling like — or perhaps even being told that — you’re too old to game. Or
