Random 5person assault on Ogrimmar

Friday, August 28th, 2009

So buddy knew a guy on his server in WoW who’s account ends today.  I have an 80 on the server, so he asked if I could help celebrate his departure by killing horde.  We basically proceeded to screw with people in Ogrimmar for a bit (since we could only get 5 of us), and I only had the presence of mind to record one of our awesome fights.  This is the one I remembered to record, enjoy!

The third adventure of Acquisitions Incorporated begins!  I’m like a little boy who learned new episodes of Ninja Turtles begin today.

The Cataclysm Test

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Okay, if you have the time, I need you to do me a favor.   First, watch the Trailer to the 3rd World of Warcraft Expansion, Cataclysm. Then, leave a comment with the following:

  1. If you are a current or former subscriber to World of Warcraft, or if you’ve never owned a WoW account.
  2. If this trailer motivates you to either begin/resume/continue your subscription to the game.
  3. Any thoughts as to why the trailer made you think the way it did.

I’m building up a theory regarding Blizzard’s recently announced expansion at BlizzCon, but I need more feedback than my own mind.  I’m gonna give this a week, then I’ll share my thoughts on the matter.

Thanks in advance! 🙂

Guild Wars 2 Trailer

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

They released a trailer for Guild Wars 2 today.  I found it quite epic 🙂

Watch more videos of GW2

Of course, this trailer doesn’t have any gameplay footage (some in-engine footage) so it’s nothing to get too excited about yet, but I do like where it’s headed.  It’ll be interesting to see if this comes out in any reasonable amount of time soon.

Just a quick note, I updated WordPress today and did some general house cleaning.  If I accidentally deleted your user account, I’m sorry but I had a lot of spammers to clear out.  Also the RSS should work again, but I’m not 100% sure.

Man I like this latest update.

Aion Online – gameplay videos

Monday, August 17th, 2009

So in the wake of WoW slipping further and further down my approval charts, I intent to try out Aion Online next month when it releases on Sept. 22.  I had only marginal interest in the game until I could see gameplay videos since well trailers prove nothing – seeing how the game is actually played goes much farther.  Here are links to some of my favorites (I highly recommend you watch these in HD).

Low level magic user (mage?) gameplay

Level10 Job change quest (complete with short cutscene!)

Mid level Gladiator grinding (Wooo two-handers)

Solo assassin ganking

Cleric Areal PvP “The Nightmare of Ashucatan” Part 1 / Part 2

Enjoy 🙂

This is wrong

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

Thank you ladies and gentlemen, PvP servers have left the building.

A very wrong screenshot from WoW (Small version)

Just in case it’s not clear, the problem here is that you’re not supposed to be allowed to roll characters of the other faction once you pick a faction on a PvP server.  To quote Dominion “They got Panda Attack in my PAA”

I’m sorry but this is just an outrage.  I know half of WoW’s player base didn’t quit the game over this, but frankly I can’t understand why they didn’t.

So yeah – LF new MMO PST.  Can’t be shitty.
