Burnout in MMOs is not only common, it is expected. No one picks up an MMO to play forever, and we all expect that someday, we will move on to something different. Today I want to look at some of the things that cause burnout in games, my experience with burnout, and the ways you can address burnout in your own life. Read more…

It will certainly be interesting to try to find a small bird in the largest forest you have ever stepped foot in…

I’m glad the developers see how ridiculous the things they ask of us are…

Um...you're using that bed wrong, buddy.

Um…you’re using that bed wrong, buddy.

Recently, I wandered back into LOTRO, as I have a tendency to do. Riders of Rohan is the newest thing (well, to me anyway), so I got all pumped up about Mounted Combat and was not disappointed! Here are my top five things I noticed about the game having freshly returned to it. Read more…

Longing for Green Pastures

Riders of Rohan is launching today! Happy day, for mounted combat and the fields of Rohan.

Unlike for Siege of Mirkwood and Rise of Isengard, I did not pre-order this expansion, instead opting to wait for it to become cheaper. I have a lot of games and a lot on my plate in real life as well, so I don’t really feel the push to rush into Rohan.

I will say though, listening to Chance Thomas’ music for the expansion on Spotify has really made me long for the green pastures of Rohan. I cannot wait to get in and play. I have a feeling that this will be a solid experience.

So to Turbine, please work out all of the bugs before I get there. I still remember fighting through the ghost-floored Pit of Iron with two characters before they fixed it. Hopefully, this time they will work out the kinks before I come back.

And to all the members of Southern Cross, enjoy your time, my friends! I will join you in a month or so.
