XBox vs Playstation vs Wii


Each year my husband and I each get our own gifts, but we also decide on one large combined gift that we share.  Either something we want for the house, an activity we’d like to try or something we really need that both of us will use and enjoy.  This …

The Guild


  I may very well be the last gamer on the planet to hear about these people, but I feel the need to share… just in case there’s someone more out of the loop than I am. The Guild are a group of gamers who came together to make their …

Woe is Me


I have a bunch of stuff in my head but can’t really concentrate on one single thing.  Welcome to my pity party… I went to a party last weekend that had a lot of crying snot covered little kids in a small area.  Having not purchased myself a plastic bubble …

Gadget Geek


I think anyone who knows me and my husband knows that we are major gadget geeks.  Rather than clothes and shoes, holidays and whatever else people usually spend their money on, we are always on the lookout for a new laptop, PDA, mobile phone, etc.   My working has really made …

This past weekend Xander and I went to visit our friends Penny and Yuri.  They are housesitting for Yuri’s boss here in Rotterdam and it’s been great having them so close.  They live in Roosendaal, about a 35-40 minute drive from us, so we get together once every 1-2 weeks …

Gaming Week

This week I’m playing Lord of the Rings Online.  Xander has grown bored with World of Warcraft and bought LOTRO to try something different.   It came with a 7 day free trial for a friend so I installed it on my laptop to arse around with it.   It’s been a …

Well I never thought I’d ever say this, but…  I miss WoW.  Argh.. shit! This is the 2nd time over the past number of years that I’ve quit gaming.   The last time was after Star Wars Galaxies and before World of Warcraft. I had quit gaming completely for about 10 months …

I’m in an Instance!

This week I’m FOADing my husband and his World of Warcraft addiction.   I am quickly reaching the end of my rope with it and I feel like a total hypocrite about it… but I don’t care.  I’m sick to death of his gaming addiction. Being a former gamer myself it’s …
