Scattered Evening #OMDU #Astebreed #FFXIV #SkyForge

Orcs Must Die Unchained This morning I am struggling more than a little bit.  The last couple of nights have combined being up fairly late with not really sleeping that terribly well on top of it.  As a result I am significantly more groggy than normal…

A Small Patch #FFXIV patch and #Blaugust clarifications

Blaugust Clarifications Yesterday I had a handful of questions about Blaugust that I thought I should address this morning, just in case anyone else had it.  Firstly it is absolutely okay to write content ahead of time and stage it to release over the…

Love Our Guild #Aggronaut #GreySkyArmada #FFXIV and a little #SkyForge

Unlocking Dungeons This weekend was a little bit split as far as gaming goes.  I spent about four hours in SkyForge and the rest of it wandering around in Final Fantasy XIV.  I had a bunch of side projects that I never really got off the ground.  One of…

SkyForge Impressions #Aggronaut first thoughts about #Skyforge

Recreating Belghast Skyforge is one of those games that I have consistently been unable to decide if I am interested in.  There are certain aspects of the game that I really like, but then again there are certain aspects that I am really uncertain of. …

Chasing a PVE MOBA #Aggronaut talks about the possibility of a PVE MOBA

A Meaningless Term Yesterday I witnessed a conversation unfold that I have had a dozen times myself with various folks.  A friend of mine made the idle comment that they would really like to see a “PVE MOBA”, to which someone else predictably replied that…

Final Coil of Bahamut #Aggronaut ventures into Final Coil of Bahamut

Missing Tank Last night was our raid night for the group that meets on Mondays in Final Fantasy XIV.  Initially there was talk of working on Bismarck Ex but since we only have one geared tank in that team, that was out of the question.  Ashgar decided to…

Begrudging Enjoyment #Blaugust answers #FFXIV Alex and #SkyForge

Even More Clarifications! Starting to get really amped because two days in we have like two pages worth of signups on the forum thread.  Since I guess I am the grandmaster of ceremonies, I am getting random questions and have been doing my best to assuage…

The Revenge of Blaugust almost #Blaugust 2015 time, here are the rules

What is Blaugust? A few years ago I started down this path of madness that I have referred to as my Grand Experiment, where I started blogging every single day.  It has been a grueling experience at times, but also something I would not trade for the…

I have been kicking around the idea of restarting a blog for a couple of weeks, now. I've been off-and-on working on getting it all set up and whatnot, but haven't actually posted anything, yet.

Guess I have some more incentive, now! Count me in. :D

More SkyForge Thoughts #Aggronaut spends a bit more time in #SkyForge

Controller Support One of the questions left unanswered from yesterday was whether or not the game had controller support.  On a whim I picked up my controller towards the end of one of yesterdays streams and I noticed that I could in fact control my…

Games I’m Not Playing #Aggronaut laments games he is not playing

Too Many Games Right now I am suffering from a problem, in that there are just too many games that I want to be playing and simply not enough time in any combination of lifetimes to actually play them.  Last night I downloaded and installed Skyforge, and…

Tidy Whitey Man #Aggronaut talks music and plays some #ARK

Commoditization of Music A few days ago I wrote a piece talking at least in part about how the prevalence of steam sales has lowered my valuation of games in general.  Yesterday while running errands at lunch I happened to catch a piece on NPR talking…
