Hi! We're still here, though mostly I'm still here. Syrana hasn't really had much time to game, especially with the other blog and everything.

I still game pretty often. I'm still enjoying WoW casually, like usual. I hit 85 with one character, my Dwarf Hunter. I know! Sideshow didn't hit it first. Blasphemy! I'm working on it. I just play Alliance more because I have more close friends/family that play on that side. I don't mind playing Horde, but it's not the same without Syrana so I get bored quicker. Plus, I know no one in that guild anymore.

I haven't played a ton of Xbox 360 stuff recently and even if I wanted to play anything on my PS3, I couldn't. (*facepalm*)

I did try the Rift beta, but only for a few days. I was not sucked into the hype like a lot of other people. I mean, it was fun and all, but nothing that would make me go out and buy another game and sign up for another subscription. I've done that way too many times already and have been burned on it. (*cough*Warhammer*cough*Age of Conan*cough*Aion) So, I've stopped doing that. WoW is fine for me, especially since I play casually and I like familiarity. Plus, playing with a few friends and family is enough for me.

Other than that, I really haven't bought many games lately, which is good for my wallet. The last games I bought were the GTA Pack on Steam for $7.50. So, I got GTA, GTA 2, GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas. Not a bad deal. The last full/new game I bought was The Sims Medieval, which isn't bad. It's basically the Sims, but with less “living” to worry about and a lot more RPG elements. It's done very well. I also dabble at bit in Minecraft here and there creating weird things and exploring. It's a good relaxing game, except at night when the Creepers are after me.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
