Larísa is working on a 2009 year in review post and she'd like to hear your nominations for in game and blog memories.  I'm still working on my nominations, but don't forget to send her yours, too!

Fish is saying goodbye to WoW, but hopefully not to the blogosphere completely.  Thanks for all the fish, Fish.  Erm, you know I'm terrible with goodbyes…. Don't be a stranger, ‘k?

Samodean has introduced a new series that I'm looking forward to: Comics For Noobs.  If you have questions you'd like to see him cover in it, be sure to send them to him!

Falconesse has a great post that expands on and examines a couple other posts regarding differences in armor sets on male and female avatars.

Rather than focusing on the differences between genre gamers, Fulguralis takes a look at skills we can carry with us into any gaming genre.

And last, but not least…

Did you know we have a fan page on Facebook? Hey, why not, amirite?

  • @Jaedia – Thanks <3 This is actually the first time I’ve advertised the fan page… so I’m honestly surprised there are any fans at all, really lol

    @Sprink – Oh noes! Stupid failbook! Hopefully it’ll work later? /hopeful

  • Thanks for the advertising! 🙂
    I’ve got so many suggestions that I’m slightly overwhelmed, it will be a pain to make a final decision, since there’s so much awesomeness out there – i the game and in the Blogopshere. And 1 year is like an eternity – loads of stuff happens.
    But of course it’s also a pleasure. I’m glad you wanted to take part in it!

  • @Larísa – I think it’s a fantastic idea! Although, I don’t envy the decisions you’ll have to make. There has been a lot that’s happened over the past year and tons of great suggestions that I saw in the comments!

    @Sprink – Yay! 😀


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!
