Play Secret World LegendsAs a fan of the wonderful world that Secret World brought us, do you cringe or grin with excitement when Secret World Legends news pops up? Do you waffle between tell me more and no news is good news? I’ve been on both sides. Who can blame us? We’ve weathered everything from financial woes and the corresponding closure concerns to a complete reboot. And now, we’re experiencing yet another changing of the guard. The Creative Director position that has migrated from Ragnar Tornquist to Joel Bylos to Romain Amiel has been vacated, and a new lead designer is taking over; Amiel left Funcom last month to pursue different endeavors, leaving Chris “Nirvelle” Meredith in charge. You can’t have a big change like this without people worrying that something will happen to their favorite conspiracy-laden game; it’s inevitable, like the sass of Kirsten Geary. The big question is, will this latest development in the structure of … [Read more...] about Chaos Theory: A changing of the guard in the Secret World Legends

Earlier this week, I had the chance to interview Riot Games’ Leanne Loombe, who is the Product Manager of the upcoming Clash mode. Clash is a tournament mode for League of Legends, automated and will have five players team up to fight for glory and prizes, for players of all skill levels. It promises to be an all-new way to approach League of Legends and could very well foster team-work and positivity in the League of Legends community. It was a pleasure to chat with her, and this is what we now know about the Clash system: [JASON]: Clash is an upcoming mode for League of Legends where players can team up and play in regular tournaments for glory and prizes. Are there any requirements/restrictions on players entering? [LEANNE]: In order to play in Clash players must be level 30, played their placements in an SR queue and also be Honor Level 2 or above. When entering Clash for the first time players will need to verify their League account by connecting their phone number to … [Read more...] about League of Legends – Interview with Clash Product Manager Leanne Loombe
THE GRINDSTONE TRIBUNAL: Why? Why?! WHY?! WHY?!! WHY?!!! Dreskar: Secret World Legends is one of those games that physically hurts to play. I feel insulted every time I see the game in action or whenever just roaming around within the game’s world. It still has some of the old charm of Secret World in there but covered in layers and layers of stupidity, incompetence, and greed. This is not a good game, not by any stretch of the imagination would I ever recommend such a piece of shit, and I honestly feel the developers should be ashamed of themselves. All that cleverness that the base game had, was eroded by the awful UI, flashy gimmicks and constant looming knowledge of lockboxes containing better loot. Combat was absolutely atrocious with no redeeming qualities to it, an over reliance on RNG and little else without even basic variety in builds as you are so hamstrung with so few abilities and passives you can’t make anything unique work. This even extends to the idea that … [Read more...] about Secret World Legends (Episode 100)

Play Secret World LegendsThe things I do for you! You know that story is everything to me, and in order to bring you more information, I allowed myself to be partially spoiled on Secret World Legends’ start of the long-awaited Season 2. If you know nothing of what’s ahead and are trying to stay totally pure of any information other than it launches on April 4th, then go ahead and leave now. Right now. That was your warning. Because I was just on a pretty detailed (but not completely spoilerific) tour of the upcoming content release with Game Director Romain Amiel and Community Manager Andy Benditt. And I am going to share some of it with you. Don’t worry, though – I’ve got your back. I’ve made it so incredibly obvious the different levels of spoilers — from nothing to lots — so if you get spoiled, you will have only yourself to blame. If you already know where we are heading and want to learn details about non-story stuff that is … [Read more...] about A sneak peek of South Africa in Secret World Legends’ Season 2
