Is World of Warships worth playing? Here’s our take on Wargaming.net’s naval PvP MMO. Why World of Warships? In most War Games, battleships are bombed and rendered useless by aircraft before they actually display any sort of stealth or combat potential. Fortunately for fans of the genre, Wargaming’s free-to-play naval simulator gives these beastly warships the epic battles game developers have previously denied them. The fighting takes place in specific locations, each has very distinct, and quite realistic atmospheric conditions. The locations include the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arctic oceans. So brace yourself for a bevy of differing conditions! You’ll have to maneuver your way around Icebergs and other sea bound obstacles to survive the game’s treacherous waters. The core of World of Warships’ gameplay is the gunnery. Early on in the game warships are deceptively simple. Though, as time progresses and you advance into the late game, … [Read more...] about Is World of Warships Worth Playing In 2018?

I haven’t been paying much attention to Star Wars: The Old Republic news or been active on their forums for the last few days, so today’s Friday update was a complete surprise to me when they revealed a developer blog for Sounds of the Old Republic, and a developer dispatch for the Music of the Old Republic. I know I’ve gotten excited for many updates in the past, but nothing really compares to this. Game music is something I’ve always pondered and written about. Yes, it’s personal and yes, it’s important. For me it’s such an essential part of immersion and the gaming experience, you’ll never catch me substituting the in-game score with my own playlist. I also like to listen to it offline, especially while I work. If a game soundtrack exists, you can bet I probably own it. My iPod is filled with gigs and gigs of music from the games I’ve played, everything from Aion to Zelda. Oftentimes, audio cues touch me emotionally in ways that … [Read more...] about SWTOR Sounds And Music
Play EVE Online for freeIt’s become almost a running joke in the comments of articles that EVE Online is a great game to read about but not nearly as fun to actually play. While those of us who have been playing for years can attest to EVE‘s depth and long-term gripping power, it has always been a difficult game for new players to get into. EVE sees an unmistakable spike in new players every time a story about a massive battle or political event hits the gaming media, but most don’t stay in the long term and activity levels always return to normal within a few months. CCP has tried to revamp the new player experience more times than probably any other part of the game to combat this, but EVE‘s infamous impenetrability remains stubbornly intact. At EVE Fanfest 2016, we learned that a whopping 1.5 million people signed up to EVE last year, but that 51% of them quit within the first two hours. They’re … [Read more...] about EVE Evolved: Fixing EVE’s New Player Experience (again)
I’m currently sailing through the gaming Doldrums at the moment, where I use the term based upon its nautical meaning rather than the more common colloquial use that we are familiar with today. That is to say that I am making my way through a slow, calm period of gaming where no significant progress is being made and little adventure is to be had. Since I am in no rush to get to new gaming lands, however, and I have enough store of plain and simple content to keep me from gaming starvation for a while – gaming hardtack, if you will: sustenance enough without necessarily being a delight on the palette of play – I shalln’t be found wanting through the current becalming of my evenings’ electronic entertainment. Lord of the Rings Online continues to be a sanctuary of solitude for me; it’s where I go when I want to escape all worlds and just exist outside of human space. My Warden is level sixty one and, having completed much that could be done for the … [Read more...] about So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.

Over the last week I have managed to gather enough shards to purchase the three pets, the shade touched doodad, and the trinket that turns me into a rogue skeleton. Basically I have managed to get everything I wanted from the event other than the mount. As a result, I have spent the last few nights mostly outside of Rift, to take a bit of a break. Minecraft has been an obsession for a long time now. At it’s core the game is basically Legos on crack, and you would have to be living under a rock at this point to have not at least heard of the game that has exploded like a creeper over the last year. I wrote a review for the gaming blog Polygamerous some time ago titled “Minecraft: Better Than The Hype”. I figure this is as good as any to do a post with a gratuitous amount of screenshots. Starting Out Alone Like everyone I started with Minecraft Single player. I learned to hide in fear from the barrage of skeletons and zombies, … [Read more...] about My Other Obsession
