Problems Roleplaying

Going along the lines of my recent Shadowrun 4 review, I thought I would go into my personal progression into roleplaying. It has been a year now since I began roleplaying on a nearly weekly basis. Most of the rest of the group has been there week in and week out as well. Some more than others obviously. I actually think that of the group, I have been the most consistent in actually being there. Continue reading “Problems Roleplaying”

Thoughts on Shadowrun 4

It has been almost a year now since I started playing Forth edition Shadowrun with a group. And some things have progressed some things haven’t. But I wanted to give my overall thoughts of SR4.  I am by no means an expert on the system, even after a year which I guess could show that the game system has depth, but I don’t think you can be a master of any pen and paper RPG after only one year.

Dualing in MMOs

I’ve played a lot of Travian over the last few years and perhaps one of the first things you learn as a Travian player is that one player on an account is not enough to be competitive.

Everquest 2 Extended Announced

This week I got an email from Sony Online Entertainment announcing to me that they are launching EverQuest 2 Extended. What this is, is a free-to-play edition of EQ2. They aren’t doing it quite like normal, they are splitting it up into tiers. So there will be free to play, an extended version with a one time fee, their normal monthly fee, and then a new extended pay structure that gives you more access.
