I hope that everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving had a good one. I appreciate all the well-wishes you guys sent over the weekend to my family and I — thank you! RL Update: As I posted on Thanksgiving, my father has been in the hospital for over 2 weeks now. At the point of that posting, we didn’t know what was going to happen (surgery was a maybe), but now I’m glad to say he’s officially on the road to recovery. We’re still not sure how long it will be before he comes home, but at least the worst of it seems to be over, we hope. Though I spent time at the hospital this weekend, I also did get to do some gaming. The newest Alpha of 7D2D dropped, and I’ll write about my thoughts on that soon. Aside from that, I’ve just been making slow progress on my FFXIV monthly goals. Yesterday, I finally hit level 70 on Amon’s first crafter. I didn’t intend for that to be Culinarian, but that’s how it ended up. This is a good … [Read more...] about FFXIV: Alt Level 70 Crafter

Ages ago on the MMORPG subreddit, a player made a bold statement: MMORPGs are designed for low-skill gamers. “I remember being dazzled by EverQuest and Ultima as a child,” he wrote, reminiscing about his memory of high difficulty old-school games. “I recently loaded up [Star Wars: The Old Republic] again, and I’m shocked. Piss easy. Everything. XP falling from the sky. Mobs dead in one GCD. Brainless. The same reason I quite every MMO. I never meet people, I never feel challenged. I just feel bored. ‘Wait till endgame’ isn’t gonna cut it anymore. I’m over it. I’m done. I feel like I’m just hitting the ‘Reward’ button again and again and again, solitary and alone, like a stupid little rat in the cage.” He then basically blames the perceived shift of the genre on people who don’t want games to be “like a job”: “The genre just seems to be fueled by mediocre, anti-social … [Read more...] about Massively Overthinking: Are MMOs designed for ‘low-skill gamers’?

Last year when I wrote an article on whether Hostgator was cheating their affiliates, it created a lot of buzz, with more than 150+ social shares. Today AlannaB commented by saying the following: “I’ve been using Hostgator for my site hosting for a few years now and have never had any problems. When I started a new site, I wanted to join Hostgator’s affiliate program. I was just reading the T&C’s where it says that you only get paid if your balance is at least $100 at the end of 180 days. Meaning that if you have less in your account, you don’t get paid! That’s why it’s so important to read the fine print! So I started looking to see if Hostgator’s affiliate program was worth the trouble. Thanks for taking the time to clue us in on what happened to you. I have a CJ account so I think I’ll use that route instead.” AlannaB’s comments brought to mind an interesting question: Which is more beneficial to join- a direct … [Read more...] about Should You Join Direct Affiliate Program or Marketplace?
