Recently, my ongoing relationship with World of Warcraft went through some serious struggling. Lately, something had not been clicking right with my paladin character, named Fynn. His healing numbers weren't impressive and despite my best efforts I couldn't seem to work out a comfortable place for him in the last raid. So, with the recent… Continue reading Fynn, Fyona, and WoW
When TechnicolorMom and I first met, we talked about video games a fair bit. In time, we'd begin playing games together as long as there was some kind of cooperative experience for us to enjoy. One of the first games we played together was called Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. It was a game that had drawn… Continue reading Returning to Skylands
"Here we go again..." Today, Tuesday February 5, 2019. A change is coming to WoW... Sionis Sepher, the Fire Mage of Stormwind, is returning to raid duty! It's true.

When we moved to Atlanta, I was so excited to discover MicroCenter stores, which granted me an… Continue reading The Family “Rigs”

WoW players crave not these things!" - King Anduin (2018)… Continue reading Battle for Azeroth: What Keeps Me Playing?
It was roughly one year ago that I convinced myself to buy a Nintendo Switch. I purchased one game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I told myself that if I wanted to buy more games for the system, I needed to beat Zelda. I didn't have to collect all the things or… Continue reading Making the “Switch”
Just a month ago, the Battle for Azeroth expansion was about to go live. I remember it well, mostly because I was laid up on a couch recovering from appendicitis! Most importantly, however, the hype of the upcoming expansion had everyone brimming with excitement. After all, Legion had been a big success so we were ready for… Continue reading Framing a Narrative
