Upcoming Guild Wars 2 Articles

Guild Wars 2 has been something I’ve been meaning to write about for a long time now. Even though I’ve played MMOs for years and years, GW2 is the first one I’ve reached level cap in, and is most likely pretty close to being the one I’ve put the most hours into, even over Myth War.

I was going to do an article regarding me capping the same week that I did that, but instead it sorta turned into a larger multi-article that I stopped working on in favour of my multiple journal series. I’m going to divide the uber-article into specialized articles, and do some other articles, possibly guides and journals, maybe even a comic series.

I also wanted to get back into the short quick blog updates again, although not quite as short as my Anarchy Online ones probably. This would be a great game to do it in, with the bi-weekly updates and just generally the massive amounts of content that it packs.

So I hope you’ll return for those, and tell your friends.


(Part 1) Dog Massacres Archers: Mount & Blade With Fire and Sword


After romping through Warband, getting shot in the face repeatedly by crossbowmen and dudes who can throw javelins like they’re being guided by the hand of Chuck Norris (I will write a series on that, and sorry to say, but that one will have a million times better of a title), I installed With Fire and Sword ’cause hard disk space. That’s not a valid reason? Yes. Continue reading

Dog is Playing Fallout: New Vegas, Want a Journal Series?

I know, I know, is the main thing my blog is known for currently, but X: Rebirth (which I WILL be playing) is still a little ways off, and I haven’t reinstalled X3 yet.

I had bought Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition on Steam sale for I believe it was… five bucks. I installed it the other day and have been playing it quite a bit since. I wanted to know, you people who actually find this, if you think I should do a Dog Plays Fallout: New Vegas series while waiting for the new X. Tell me in the comments below, and if I feel like it, I may just start writing them out anyways.

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter 13


Since playing last, my brain has been defragged and I’ve re-remembered what X3 is all about. One of my goals in X3 was to turn RioYeti Conglomerates into RioYeti Interspace, meaning I’d have my economic hands all over the galaxy. That means I need to build some stuff in other race’s territory. Continue reading

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter 12

This chapter (and possibly future chapters), is special in that it will be written while I’m playing. So enjoy whatever that does for the articles.

Yes, I stopped being a lazy little gamer playing Borderlands and Minecraft and STO (all at the same time) over X3. You guys actually genuinely like my journals, and so I decided that I need to stop just playing games for fun, but to again play games for the fun of me and my readers. X3 may be a slow game at times, and I may be at a slow part. So I’m up early in the morning, and I’m gonna make more journals and guides for X3, and not let my blog be a derelict of forgotten dreams and abandoned McGriddles.


Welp, I guess the dude on Reddit who said I’d be kidnapped back to X3 in a month was spot-on.

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter Eleven

Just a quick note: I will be switching the release of new episodes to Sundays, as I’m lazy and that will give me more free time to write. Anyways, many of you probably have the weekends off from work or whatever, so you can read it right when it comes out.


This time, I manage to avoid detonating in space from rapidly expanding solar plant modules, or more likely in this case, to detonate in space from metal spaghetti ending up all over the flippin’ place.

I placed the hub correctly this time, and everything else was perfectly placed, for that matter.

And then I repeat it, making a nice, symmetrical complex, with the hub positioned in a manner which would minimize Discoverers running into everything, and more importantly (although less frequently) freighters running into everything. Continue reading

Dog Builds an Empire: X3 Albion Prelude Chapter Nine


Actually, I had forgot that it was for a mission where you have to escort a Mammoth. Minor detail, not that exciting. I escorted it. Giant toilet roll of doom showed up. That’s the exciting part. I also believe I might have forgotten the mission about spying, but really, that was really boring as heck, and you guys will know what happens in that mission anyways most likely. You follow a ship. That’s pretty much what these early (maybe all of them?) story missions come down to. Really, you know it’s boring since I forgot it. Continue reading
