While we are all patiently waiting for Pokemon Go or a new Pokemon game, GameFreak is doing a nice job of keeping us at bay. First, we had Hoopa, which can still be picked up from McDonald’s until the 23rd. Now, we have the first ever “Steam” pokemon. Volcanion is the new legendary Pokemon that will be coming soon to our games. It is a Fire/Water pokemon, the first in the series...[Read More]

Roleplaying has always been present in my life in some form, starting with simply running around in the woods slashing at enemies (trees) with my sword (stick).

MMORPGs are an interesting beast. Its more than a video game genre, It’s more akin to being a completely separate hobby on its own. I have played a ton of MMOs and most of them are bad, but the ones that do a great job it makes me love the genre. WildStar on paper sounds pretty fantastic when it comes to MMOs. Though “on paper” isn’t why we shell out the loot to play these ...[Read More]
