As you probably have heard, there was a Bless influencer event this week, with a couple of media and a smattering of MMO streamers in attendance. The leak of the price points happened soon before we went in, but none of the people in attendance, devs or streamers, really seemed fazed by it. Most people seemed ready to have a good time. For someone like me, who was initially blown away by Bless circa 2011, the game had fallen off my radar, especially after the game’s rocky trip to Russia and initial Korean release. The western build-up for me has felt like a big PR push, with the pricing model dangled like a feature that people actually should be excited about. Basic questions like, “How does endgame work?” were easier to find on Reddit, Steam, and fansites than any of the PR I was reading. I was concerned, to say the least, but things like “tame almost any mob!” and “100v100” battles intrigued me. Though nothing I saw is probably going to … [Read more...] about Hands-on with Bless Reborn at Neowiz’s San Francisco media reveal
First and foremost I feel like I should start this video off with the latest news surrounding Bless as it is the most hyped MMORPG release at this point. Next up we have Soul Worker’s latest update – bringing with it Jin Seipatsu – another male character that the game desperately needed utilizing my favorite fighting style in action games: Fisting. Blade and Soul is going down a new route with their new Eternal Night update coming May 9. In a surprising (or not surprising if you’ve taken a look at their population numbers recently) move by Perfect Entertainment, both Swordsman Online and Jade Dynasty have been announced to be shutting their doors to players on June 5, 2018. With the closure of their Classic servers and the launch of their new Phoenix update, players can be happy to know that they have added in various forms of additional content, including a new PvP field, two new dungeons, and a new 10-person normal difficulty raid. Yes, … [Read more...] about Your Weekly Byte Of MMORPG News: Bless Online New Party Gameplay Footage, New Soul Worker Character
Bless Online is steadily approaching its Steam Early Access launch, and the Neowiz team are showing off all five classes and how they’ve been reworked/rebuilt to be engaging, interactive and far more exciting than they were originally. So today we’re going to go into each of the five classes briefly. Please note, these videos were taken in a development environment. These do not reflect the final versions of the characters. Each of these classes are unique and require different tactics/strategies to exploit their power and gain an edge on their enemies. Guardian: Guardians are commanders of the battlefield, protecting both their allies and the front line combatants. Every time a Guardian uses a combo, they will gain bravery (their personal resource). Once that meter has filled, players can change their stance to activate the [Enhance] effect. When Enhance is activated, guardians receive additional effects to help them in their tasks. However, the Guardian needs to use the … [Read more...] about Bless Online Shows Off Revamped Combat In New Class Videos
Earlier today, we posted up Bless Online’s new trailer and big news: That’s it’s launching on Steam early access as a buy-to-play title this coming May. As part of the announcement, Neowiz agreed to answer a few of our most pressing questions about the infodump. Read on for more about the game’s planned monetization, what constitutes early access, and the state of PvP servers. MassivelyOP: Can you disambiguate a bit for us here – is Bless’ early access more like a paid beta with wipes or a true soft launch? When exactly should regular gamers be jumping in if they do not want to help test, and how much testing and server wiping is going to go on? Neowiz: Bless Online’s early access period on Steam is closer to a soft launch. There won’t be any wipes once it begins. While we’ll be listening closely and gathering feedback on how to improve Bless for the full launch, those who aren’t interested in focusing on testing will … [Read more...] about Bless Online interview: On soft launch, monetization, classes – and no lockboxes
"Blogging gifted me My first car". That day was a milestone in the journey of my life, and It's like history repeating itself. Today on 29th July 2015 I'm rewriting the story with one change, and this time it's a "Flat" instead of a "Car". After living in rented flats for the last seven years, finally I have a permanent shelter & address. Last year I purchased a flat in Gurgaon with my blogging income from blogging & home loan from ICICI bank. And, Finally today I got the possession of the flat. This is once in a lifetime moment & my sincere gratitude to ShoutMeLoud, to you & all the readers. Little backstory… I left my parents house in 2002, and I dreamed of following the steps of my Mentor (Grandfather), who moved from a small village to a city & set a landmark for the generations to follow. I'm not close to what he did; someone who build a house with his own hands, but I'm content that my direction is right. On 1st December 2008, I never thought blogging could … [Read more...] about Blogging Gifted Me Shelter For The Life – Feeling Blessed!
