  • Boom Beach: Are Ice Statues Useful?

    I find it oddly common where many bases contain Ice Statues. The most popular proposed play strategy in Boom Beach is to go purely offensive and worry about defense only once you’ve finished hitting HQ 22. If that’s the case, why are there so many Ice Statues, especially MP defense ones? Are they really that […]

  • Boom Beach: Why Keeping Your Armory Upgraded Is Critical

    Your Armory is one of your most important buildings to maintain as you gain levels. Around the midgame maintaining your Armory starts to take its toll in competing for valuable resources with your base, Gunboat, Statue, Vault, Radar and other critical defenses like Rocket Launchers and Boom Cannons. Because of the high cost in resources […]

  • Boom Beach: PSC Statue or Not?

    PSC (Power Stone Chance) statues are an interesting type that I’ve read as being labeled for “advanced strategies.” Are they worth employing in your grouping? Or should you just try them whenever you receive one? Also, when should you boost them? I’ll attempt to answer these questions from my own experience.

  • Boom Beach: How to Avoid Being A Complete Noob

    I’m going to come out of the closet right now and say that I’m a Boom Beach addict. Yes, I killed one addiction (World of Warcraft) for another. Now that I’ve gotten that part out of the way, I wanted to share some strategies that I’ve been learning over the past year or so of […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: Best Route Quest Route?

    When you play Baldur’s Gate 2 a few times, you eventually learn what works for you in terms of the game progression. Shadows of Amn is pretty flexible in giving you a fairly non-linear setup so you’re essentially open to do the various quests in almost any order you want (outside of certain key story […]

  • World of Warcraft: Siege of Orgrimmar Wing 1 LFR Guide

    Now that Siege of Orgrimmar is on farm for me for LFR, I decided to post some tips on doing well. The thing is that there’s a huge variance of difficulty mostly due to how certain bosses had been nerfed or were pre-nerfed while others still are overtuned and can cause trouble for groups because […]

  • Baldur’s Gate 2: More Class/Party Discussion

    I finished Shadows of Amn once again yesterday and began Throne of Bhaal but have made little progress thus far. The play through on my party consisted of a human kensai/mage, human undead hunter, half-elf ranger/cleric, Jaehira (half-elf fighter/druid), human wizard slayer/thief and elf fighter/mage. Mostly, I just powered my way through and did most […]

  • World of Warcraft: Siege of Orgrimmar LFR Part 1 DPS Guide

    Since I’ve done Siege of Orgrimmar LFR Part 1 now roughly 8 times on several toons, I decided to write up my experiences as a DPS, both ranged and melee, on how I handled each fight. I will cover Part 2 once I have more experience, although I think I have a pretty good handle […]

  • World of Warcraft: Throne of Thunder LFR Guide (for the Uber Casual DPS Player) Part 4

    Now, for the final part of this guide. Part 4. By now, you should be pretty pumped to defeat the current adversary of LFR. And the final encounters are more or less decent with Lei Shen being mid to hard depending on your group. At this stage, I think most groups can one shot him […]

  • World of Warcraft: Throne of Thunder LFR Guide (for the Uber Casual DPS Player) Part 3

    Now, it’s time for Halls of Flesh-Shaping. Let’s get started. The first thing is that you’ll be faced with a bunch of swamp like-monsters circling around a platform. As you DPS down these foes, occasionally you’ll be ported over into a purplish-maze and must fight a tiny creature. Keep in mind how this maze-like prison […]
