Finished Battlefield Bad Company 2

Yes, I know Battlefield Bad Company 2 has been out for quite a while. I had to wait until it was on sale to buy it, which I did a few months back, and finally got around to playing it. I’m very glad I bought it on sale, because it certainly isn’t worth a full-game . . . → Read More: Finished Battlefield Bad Company 2

Oops! I may have made a mistake buying X Rebirth

I’ve been a big fan of Egosoft’s X series of space games. I first played X2:The Threat many years ago and loved it, logging hundreds of hours building stations and fleets. Then came X3: Reunion, and that was good too. I also played X3: Terran Conflict, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I skipped X3: Albion Prelude, . . . → Read More: Oops!

Star Trek Online: Making a Fat Bajoran on Risa. Adventures of Lt. Cmdr. Fatass

I decided to experiment with the character editor to make my Bajoran Female character look more like the reality of myself and many other ‘Muricans with a little (or a lot of) extra weight. Unlike all the other avatars I see in their tiny swimsuits on Risa, Lt. Cmdr. FatAss here has as large a . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online: Making a Fat Bajoran on Risa. Adventures of Lt. Cmdr.

Star Trek Online Graphics Bug: Flying Without a Floater

Even with yesterday’s patch, my studly Joined Trill Admiral in Star Trek Online is so badass that he can fly in the Risa events without a floater. Or at least he’s pretty good at hiding his floater (the jetpack thing used on Risa). The video below shows it. I think it is the outfit he . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online Graphics Bug: Flying Without a Floater

Star Trek Online Swimsuits on Risa

I’ve been enjoying the Star Trek Online Summer Festival on Risa, working towards the “pearls” needed for both the Risian Corvette and the Risian Cruiser. I’m also busy earning “favors” to get swimsuits for my two female captains. Now that I’ve achieved that (see below), I will look into better jetpacks and even shorts for . . . → Read More: Star Trek Online Swimsuits on Risa

Replaying Mass Effect with a FemShep

After I finished Assassin’s Creed IV, I was looking for a new game to play. I’ve played all the Mass Effect games, but always as the stock male Shepard. I’ve been told that playing as a FemShep (female Shepard) opens up new dialogs, and the “sex” scenes may be different, etc. So I decided to . . . → Read More: Replaying Mass Effect with a FemShep

A few thoughts on #LOTRO’s potentially boring year

There have been lots of recent posts and tweets predicting doom and gloom for Lord of the Rings Online. I sure hope they’re wrong, but I do wonder if this year won’t be quite a rough patch for the game.

When Turbine announced no new major content this year, people assumed the demise of the . . . → Read More: A few thoughts on #LOTRO’s potentially boring year

Gaming at 4K update: Star Trek Online Still On Top

Since I got my 4K TV/monitor, I’ve been experimenting with games that can run at 4K resolution (3840×2160@30 Hz in my case). As I noted in my last post, Star Trek Online works very well at 4K. I’ve continued to play STO at 4K and couldn’t be more impressed. It looks good at that resolution . . . → Read More: Gaming at 4K update: Star Trek Online Still On Top

Gaming at 4K: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Since Amazon had the Seiki 39″ 4K TV for a great price last week, I picked it up in the hopes of gaming at 4K. I have a reasonably decent PC with an NVidia 670 that can drive 4K monitors, so that part worked well, but there are some issues.

The monitor itself is a . . . → Read More: Gaming at 4K: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

My Love/Hate Relationship with Borderlands 2

Having played and thoroughly enjoyed Borderlands 2 when it first came out, I bought the Season Pass, but let the game languish as I played a few other games, had health issues that totally ruined my gaming ability for a while, and kept up with my Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) and Star Trek . . . → Read More: My Love/Hate Relationship with Borderlands 2
