Legion: Alpha is Live!

So, Legion beta alpha has gone live, and so far the only people with access are those that are either chummy with the devs, have loads of viewers/subscribers on Twitch/YouTube, or have tonnes of readers/followers on Twitter. Obviously I fall into none of the above categories, so no Alpha here as yet 😛 So far though […]

Why I love… Blogging (vs Vlogging)

Apologies for the WIL… delay this week, Blizzcon articles, gnomes and work got slightly in the way a bit  I’m a fairly old school kind of person in some regards. I’ve always been someone who has preferred writing over talking, blogging over vlogging, considering my words carefully before committing them to “paper” so to speak. […]

Blizzcon Day 2: Warcraft Roundup

So Day 2 is mostly done and dusted, and we had the final half of our televised WoW panels. First up was the Game Systems panel, and here we learnt quite a bit, including some massive news for transmog junkies! No cross faction chatter in Class Halls This is a big one. And an amazingly […]

Why I love… The Flash

No, not that one, this one: The Flash as a TV show has just begun its second season in the US, but what I really want to talk about here is its debut season last year. The first season of The Flash, starring Gustin Grant as the titular character was in my opinion very probably the […]

On design and updates…

I’ve been working on a new design for headers etc over on Twitter over the past few weeks, and I think I’ve hit upon a design idea that I’m happy to run with for the foreseeable future! Making it more generalised in step with the broadening of the theme of my writing, so it’s reflective […]

Why I love… Stuff

I love stuff. In fact I love a lot of stuff that ain’t even games! Shocker, I know. With that in mind I’m going to be writing a regular series of articles where I’ll be gushing over various things, such as: TV Shows Music Games Retro Games Movies Tech Science Psychology Philosophy Design Diet & […]

Lifting the veil of Sar Crux…

Yep, I’ve changed locations as well as names. For clarity, the following has changed: Twitter handle, from @sargaming to @sarcrux Website URL, from sargaming.net to sarcrux.com Why the change? Well, over the past 6 months or more, I’ve become a lot more vocal about other things outside of gaming, such as politics, atheism, and so on, alongside […]

Long term petting, in at the deep end.

So, over this past week I’ve managed to complete a couple of long-term goals. First up, the legendary ring! Huzzah! Finally managed to get through the chain and get the final reward, Maalus the Blood Drinker. So once I’m back from hols and raiding again, that should give a nice boost to my DPS. Frequently […]
