MMO Journal Entry 31
TERA’s combat wasn’t enough to keep us going. It’s fun, we like playing it, but my god… everything else is just so traditional (questing, “endgame,” etc.). Perhaps a few a months away will do us some good.
I’ve been pretty hard into Dragon’s Dogma. It’s not an MMO; it’s not even a multiplayer game, but it’s been very entertaining. The UR-Dragon fight is sort of co-op, though. That’s interesting. I like helping and being helped without actually having to see/deal with other people.
After seeing the short list of previewed changes for Guild Wars 2, I’m finally excited about the beta again. Mainly… modifiers for key bindings! I’m a little disappointed about tiered skills, but I’m more disappointed about tiered traits. However, only the skills are listed in that blog so I don’t know. Tiered skills sucks, but I’m not mad about it. Tiered traits sucks and it upsets me quite a bit. Either way, tiering that stuff doesn’t give me a sense of progression; it gives me a sense of being cockblocked from the things I want to use.
Apocalyptic Gransys isn’t as fun as normal Gransys. It’s harder, which I like, but it’s just ugly and depressing!
MMO Journal Entry 26
Although PayPal wasn’t an option and I refuse to let EA/BioWare have my credit card, I’m playing SW:TOR. It took some effort, though. Alongside a game card and a physical copy of the game, I’m playing.
It’s what I expected after playing the beta. There’s nothing world-changing about it, but it’s something to play. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the game. I’m just not falling over myself with excitement about it. SW:TOR is very middle-of-the-road for me. It’s neither great nor horrible and that’s fine.
I do like being able to duo flashpoints, though. Anyone that tells you that a companion can’t be viable in a flashpoint is either lying or sucks at using their companion. I suppose that’s nice.
need more on the dash! does anyone know any good mmo or gaming tumblrs to follow?
