Our regular readers may already know about my urge to change this blog’s content to one focusing on cooking recipes. This year is no different. The urge returned! But I thought this time, I would give a little nod to our past as a blog focusing on games. So, I figured I would give a small tribute to Tybalt (*sniff*) and dedicate this recipe to him. Apple pancakes! When I was a kid, I actually never liked pancakes or crêpes. There were two exceptions to this rule. Number 1 was crêpes (with Nutella) when it was freezing cold outside, usually when I was at a Christmas market with my family or later with friends, but only one each year or so. And number 2 were my mum’s apple pancakes. I refused to eat them when she had not put apple in them. Yes, even if there was chocolate. There had to be apples. A few months ago, I remembered those apple pancakes and really wanted to make them, but did not have my mum’s recipe. In the past, when I had asked my mum for … [Read more...] about Apple pancakes

Back in November, I discussed a growing problem in RuneScape: Gambling. The introduction of dice brought with it an underground casino-style ring of players setting up shop by the Grand Exchange (RuneScape auction house) and betting on dice rolls. In order to combat the in-game street dice, Jagex removed the item entirely, at the same time making way for the less popular gambling techniques to fight for control of the market. Enter horsing: Toy horses were introduced by Jagex way back in 2004 on April Fool’s Day joke, as a gag item for players who had asked for horse mounts. The horses can be played with, where they broadcast one of three phrases randomly. In its use in gambling, a player would offer his wager (trade money or items to the house) and place a bet one which one of the three phrases would appear. Then the house would activate the horse, and the player would win or lose depending on what the horse said. As with the dicing, this carried the risk of the house simply … [Read more...] about Gambling In RuneScape: Just Say Neigh To Gambling
Happy New Year to all our readers! My New Year’s Resolution: Blog more again! Thanks to the RSI, my gaming time is limited, but I am busy with boring RL stuff, too. Still, writing about games is something I enjoy doing and I would like to do that more often. There is one post I plan to publish soon and then I got one more vertical PC mouse that I want to write about and I just ordered another one for my right hand to try – if that one works as I hope it will, my left hand will be able to relax more as I’m still using it to move to places where my right hand can click on. I am also the very proud owner of a Steam controller which opened up lots of gaming possibilities again! Just a glimpse into my RL stuff: I am wrapping up my current job. I quit and will – if I get to take all my vacation days that I haven’t taken yet – get out there after the first week of February. This sounds bad… “get out there”. I will miss that job, even … [Read more...] about Happy New Year 2018!
