The Arcade Community this week for #StorytimeSaturday #Aggronaut talks the Arcade Community of old #SF2 #MK2 #KI

One of the odd things I have been struggling with over the last two years of writing daily is why on the week days I can bang out a post in usually less than thirty minutes, but on the weekends it takes upwards of three hours.  The problem is I think that…

Most of the people I still consider friends are people I met in various arcades, head to head through various fighting games. My best friend met me playing Tekken 2. Others, Street Fighter (2,3,alpha,ex, etc...). And to this day, I bet they can all recall the time we were at some random arcade and (X) happened.... I feel like that kind of community can never exist again.
 
Wrong About Wildstar #Aggronaut talks about two games he might have been wrong about #Wildstar and #MarvelHeroes

Daredevil is Awesome #Aggronaut talks television, #Daredevil and #UnbreakableKimmy both #Netflix originals

Broadcast Television is Strange For this mornings post I am going to diverge a bit from my normal gaming topics and talk about some television that I have been watching.  Now there are often times I say that I don’t watch much television, and this is both…

Timewalking Frustrations #Aggronaut talksdisappointment surrounding #WoW 6.2 PTR notes and Timewalking system

6.2 Disappointment This week we have had a pretty massive information dump about the 6.2 PTR patch information.  I have to say overall I am fairly disappointed, not necessarily in what is contained within the patch, but that everything about it feels like…

On User Interfaces #Aggronaut talks self imposed user interface standardization between #FFXIV #WoW #Rift examples

User Interface Last night while running dungeons I got into a length discussion with my friend Damai about the user interface layout in Final Fantasy XIV.  As such I thought it might be useful to talk about my chosen layout this morning.  One of the…

Bad Medicine #Aggronaut talks about his #WoW raid and the rough patch we are going through

A Good Nights Sleep Monday night I did not sleep well at all.  I was up late futzing and waiting on a print job for my wife, that ultimately ended up printing the wrong thing.  As a result neither of us got to bed until after midnight.  After that I don’t…

Frosty Machine #Aggronaut talks Craigslist failure, new videocard, and #MarvelHeroes

Craigslist Fails Me I have had a strange relationship with Craigslist over the last few years.  Sometimes it is the source of truly amazing things… other times the source of nothing but frustration.  When it comes to buying laptops for example I have had…

I totally agree re: Marvel Heroes. Diablo X and other fantasy type games never clicked with me. Superhero MMOs never clicked with me, but this one has clicked hard. Great mindless fun when I want it, but as I play more and more and get higher level (50/60 with my 1st guy) I'm seeing some deeper fun with gearing and planning powers. 

The wide range of ways to gear/ability/etc your hero reminds me of STO with all the gear, ship gear, BOFF powers, etc. I love when a game lets me fine tune to really optimize for my playstyle.
 
The Force Awakens #Aggronaut does #StorytimeSaturday about his history with #StarWars and #TheForceAwakens trailer

A History With Stars Wars It would be a slight understatement if I were to say that Stars Wars has meant a lot to me over the years.  It pretty much represents my childhood wrapped up with a neat little bow.  The earliest memory I have is of seeing Star…

Building a Better Wardrobe #Aggronaut talks about new #Rift patch and amazing Wardrobe system

Allergy Apocalypse I have been more than a bit out of it over the last few days.  Here in Oklahoma every allergy index be it mold spore or tree pollen has been through the roof.  This means that I have been living in a permanent daze.  The frustrating…
