Introduction Black Desert Online started this year off with a blast, giving its game world a massive increase in size by fleshing out the ocean and presenting hints at new continents for future updates. The update, known as Magoria, fleshes out the water in Black Desert, both the surface and what can be found under. There’s something for everyone in this expansion. Amazing places to explore, new crafting recipes to make use of, epic PVP naval battles, more trading options, and much, much more. This review is going to sound like an advertisement for the game, I fear, because there’s really not much to complain about, but a lot of stuff to applaud. I’ve been trying out Magoria (and Black Desert as a whole) since the release of the expansion on the 25th, and it’s finally time for me to relate to you all what I’ve found.What’s New By unlocking the ocean, the world of BDO has probably at least doubled in size. And sure, while the waters are content rich, … [Read more...] about Black Desert Magoria Expansion in Review
Black Desert Online is a high fantasy, action combat MMORPG that blends theme park and sandbox elements into a huge game world, and it’s probably very well known for its graphics and aesthetics. When creating a brand new character you’ll to pick and choose from a wide variety of classes, all with unique play styles but do keep in mind that they will be gender locked. The good news is, the game does offer the gender equivalent of each class and as an example, the Male Ninja’s counterpart is the female Kunoichi. The Best Combat System Yet The game’s combat system is action based which requires you to manually face and target enemies with your reticule to engage in combat. Each of the classes has their own unique abilities and skills that need a combination of keys, or combos, to execute. There are plenty of in-game visual guides to help you through it which is great, as the learning curve can be quite high at the beginning. As you gain more … [Read more...] about Black Desert Online Review 2018: Is BDO Worth Playing?
When it comes to games, I’m a devoted polyamorist and I don’t stay with any one online love for very long. I think that it partly is a joy of exploring the mechanics and unique ideas of new games, which is really why I enjoy covering the smaller developer studios so much. advertisement This last week, I hit a funk as I wanted to play something and had no idea what exactly I was looking for. It happens sometimes when I’m between game launches, and just want to try something new, but don’t know what. This time, I reinstalled Archeage while thinking about some of the things I really liked when I’d played the game before.Archeage captured a lot of my attention when it released in the US, but limited in-game real estate caused frustrations that made me leave the game before long. Despite that, I had fond memories of really cool economic systems, and I’ve periodically thought back to how much I liked that aspect of … [Read more...] about Black Desert Online
I figured the first article of this year should be one my most commonly asked question and no, it's not another question about my mysterious identity or gender. It's a question regarding whether they should play Black Desert or Blade & Soul! It's going to be one long article, so I hope you're ready for it. Introduction - About Me I'm sure there are a lot of people who don't know me, since I'm a ninja and all. I'd like to say I'm pretty experienced with both games having played them for over a year or two and longer. Both games were my main MMORPG during the early beta phases and releases in various languages. I played the CBT, OBT, and release of Blade & Soul since the early 2012~2015 on and off and Black Desert 2013~2015. You can find my ancient videos on my Youtube Page or my site. I figured now would be the best time to write about both games given I'm not as actively playing them anymore, which can rule out favoritism or that "fresh" new video game feeling. Honestly, I … [Read more...] about STEPARU News, Reviews, Previews & Information for Foreign Games Black Desert VS Blade & Soul 2016 Special
I've been thoroughly playing Black Desert Online for a good two months now, which should explain the lack of articles on my website lately. Most of the end game features lead back to guild related or the pvp content because it doesn't really have any major PvE activities like raids or dungeons yet, other than various life skills and summoned weekly and daily bosses. New GvG and PvP videos added for fun :3. Battles Are Won with Strategy, Trust, and Negotiations! Although I am in sizeable guild most, one of the main reasons we won is because our guild decided to make peace and form an alliance with other guilds. There is no official "alliance system" in Black Desert Online so I had to make sure that I didn't accidentally kill an ally guild in the GvG siege area. The alliance is purely based on trust and went something like if you help us get this castle, we will help you obtain other castles in the future. Not that I can read Korean, but you should get the gist. Meanwhile, the strategy … [Read more...] about STEPARU News, Reviews, Previews & Information for Foreign Games Black Desert Online PvP and GvG Review
