As I said on the Massively OP Podcast last week, I’m not going to defend Blizzard’s habit of continually taking away flying from us with each World of Warcraft expansion, but I have noticed that there’s a powerful psychological effect to being denied this for a year and then earning it back. The second I got flight in Battle for Azeroth, it was like I had hit New Game+ mode for the expansion. That tied in really well to putting my Death Knight in dry dock (at least until Patch 8.2.5) and dusting off my neglected Gnome Hunter. I had left her at level 116 and only one zone partially done, so she had a lot to do. And now she had the convenience of sky transport to do everything that my DK had to do while staying on the ground. Really, getting flight transformed everything. I stopped planning routes or calculating the time left on my flight whistle and just enjoyed the freedom of flitting around to points of interest as I willed. I started exploring out-of-the-way locales … [Read more...] about Flying transforms Battle for Azeroth questing

It’s like clockwork. Every year, around the end of March I wait for the announcement that Super Adventure Box is returning to Guild Wars 2, along with a little cheeky April Fools gag from the folks at ArenaNet. advertisement 2013 was a new and exciting time for Guild Wars 2. Living World Season 1 was in full swing, Scarlet Briar was just a figment of a designer’s imagination and we were still getting wiped on the reg by Lupi. The world was a bit grim with Braham’s moody sullen-ness and Rox’s abandonment issues, so we needed something to brighten up Tyria.Along came the Super Adventure Box. Designed by Josh Foreman in his spare time, it quickly became some of the most beloved content in the game. Somehow the colourful, casual nature of this time limited content grabbed every single Guild Wars 2 player. For two weeks, it’s the only new content that I can think of in the game that captivated the entire player base and was all but universally … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Super Box Adventures of How I Learned to Love Content Updates

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)
