    First of all, A-bomb to furniture you have to assemble. The hubby and I just put together a loft bed with a desk underneath for our son, and it made us want to throw stuff.

    For the question of the week: The first MMO that I was really into was FFXI. I played for four years pretty heavily and then fell out of it for several years. I have since then, gone back to it twice. Both times nearly as heavy, after all you don’t kill sahagin for 4 hours for a spell if you aren’t serious about it. The difference being, that instead of being able to have a full party, it was just the two of us, with an occasional other party member. The community has become top-heavy (endgame) and we enjoy the leveling experience, which is probably why we haven’t consistently stuck with it. I do still crave the old camp and kill with skillchains and magic bursts now and again, or the more simple pleasures of just playing BST and DRG. I wouldn’t put it past us to go back again for a while.

    Ahhh GW2, Fortnite, LOTRO which of these games really releasing content that is actually FREE-TO-PLAY, they can all get “mounted” and “sucked in” they are not getting my money there, it’s just hypocritical of these developers to do these things so they get the coverage of F2P sites.
    Da-Bomb to Jason’s Article it’s a really cool read, A-Bomb to MMOBOMB’s cast, cmon guys I love you all but I have to pin this, this week’s cast was ONLY about content that are none of them free-to-play there are other things happening on F2P gaming world then the things that are NOT F2P.
    Question of the Week, I did it on WoW, I stopped for more than 1 year, I was raiding before quitting and friends asked me to come back and I rerolled a new character and joined raiding since then I’ve full gave up on Blizz as developer and I intend not to play any of Activision related games.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
