Ever wonder what a gnome with big balls of fire sounds like? Trust me, he's not squeaky.  You can find out for yourself by checking out the latest episode of TNB with Gnomeaggedon!

Ever been caught in the Experience Catch-22? You need experience to get your foot in the door, but you can't get experience unless someone let's you get your foot in the door.  Sometimes the only way to break in is to fake it until you can make it, which The Cranky Gnome explores.

Remember when you were a kid and you asked “Why?” about everything? We were not content that things simply were, we wanted to know more.  This, as discussed at Kill Ten Rats, is why lore matters in games.

Fulg and Fuu over at Killing 'em Slowly want to know more about what kinds of gamers we are.  More specifically, do you keep games on your shelf as trophies or do you trade them in? And how that correlates with achievement chasing.  Help 'em out with your answers!

Still haven't checked out Dragon Age: Origins yet? Tami has an excellent overview and review without any major spoilers that you might want to check out.

Whether you love, hate, or are indifferent regarding the changes that WoW has gone through over the past 5 years, those feelings are tied to our expectations.  Spinks explores the expectations of players versus expectations of developers.

Want to learn a key factor to successful PvP? Knowing your enemy.  Great examples of this and how to play defensively are available at Critical QQ.

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!
