Sohm Al with Neighbors #FFXIV #Heavensward #TitanExtreme #SohmAl

The Teamspeak Conundrum Yesterday I spoke for a bit about one of the reasons why I have not streamed that often.  Namely that I have friends who would prefer not to be broadcast over my stream, which means when I DO stream… I have had to wall myself off…

Storming the Castle This morning I admit that I have been struggling to figure out what to write about.  It is not from a lack of material, but a conscious effort to filter myself.  Last night I leapt over a content wall in Final Fantasy XIV and it was…

Chain Run Dungeons #FFXIV #FFV bad party comp

Worst Party Comp Ever Last night I was feeling more than a little out of it, or at least too out of it to actual do much of anything meaningful in Final Fantasy XIV.  So after finishing my hunt quest and randoming my way into an Aery dungeon group…  I…

Login Boss Slain I will admit that last night I was fully expecting to spend my night playing a lot of ArcheAge.  All signs pointed to World of Warcraft 6.2 being a buggy mess, and after all of the issues that we had during the head start with the Aether…

Lord of the Hive #FFXIV #Heavensward #Ravana #SohmAl login issues

Fears for Launch All in all it was a pretty great head start weekend, but there was one big problem that I fear is only going to get worse as we move forward to the official launch tomorrow.  Right now the initial datacenter login procedure is having some…

Hell Levels #Aggronaut #FFXIV #Vault #Forge struggle for 59

Yeah, I'm a bit funny about names.  I sometimes won't even use sites where I can't get "Psychochild" as a name.  So, this WoW change, while understandable, is one more nail in the coffin ensuring I probably won't ever return to Azeroth.

When I am not attending meetings and doing strategery at work....  I am playing one of the following usually.

The Secret World
Rift
Lord of the Rings Online
Minecraft
Skyrim/Oblivion/Morrowind
Everquest II

I am supremely amped about Elder Scrolls Online, the big thing on the horizon I am looking forward to.

You can always check out my blog.... which doesn't get nearly as updated as it should.
