Welcome to the 25th edition of Reloading…

“O! for a muse of fire, that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention” – William Shakespeare

Everyone can use a feel good moment to start the day.   Let’s go with this…


One of the Reloading… readership astutely pointed out that I should just stick to covering that cartoon that I play instead of EVE and other games.  He’s probably right, and on a day where patch 4.2 is crashing down on Azeroth, he’s absolutely right. 

Here is everything that you should need to know about Firelands in easy to find reference.

The patch is about 400 MB in size, but so far I haven’t been able to download it yet.

Enjoy the new content and as always send me your impressions of the game.

As always, you can contact me a number of ways:

  • Email
  • Twitter
  • Telepathy (Just make sure it’s during business hours.  I hate to be woken by this stuff)

Until we meet again,

John “Boomjack” Hoskin

  • And much more!
