Cities in MMOs

One thing that's been bothering me about Rift since its release is the lack of "proper" towns and cities. The "main city" of the Guardian faction, Sanctum, is a building with some space all around it. The Defiant faction doesn't have anything bigger either. It is understandable given the lore and all.  But then there … Continue reading Cities in MMOs

Making friends in Rift and Guild Wars 2

Last week, Rift's expansion "Starfall Prophecy" launched and yesterday, Guild Wars 2 released another content patch. Both games made me very happy as the patches feature my most favourite animal ever. Guess what animal that is! No, not dogs. Although that's true. Not rabbits either, although those are also my favourite animal. But no, my … Continue reading Making friends in Rift and Guild Wars 2

WoW: Say cheeeeese!

Now who's more photogenic, eh? I like how silly World of Warcraft is sometimes. I had seen that they implemented the S.E.L.F.I.E. camera some time ago, but both my characters received their very own ones in the game today. Oddly enough, despite it being very silly, it's not really breaking the immersion for me. Maybe … Continue reading WoW: Say cheeeeese!

Finally got my Opie!

If you pre-purchased the expansion when Trion announced it and collected the Starfall Prophecy tokens by logging on every day (which fortunately, I was able to do), then you should have 50 of these tickets today and can get your Opie mount! I had seen pictures of the mount, but I never noticed that it … Continue reading Finally got my Opie!

Wildstar’s Jumpstart Pack – Is it worth the price?

I only just wrote about Wildstar's housing and wondered whether you could get the housing teleporter and now they added it to their store for the cost of 720 NCoins. I assume that once the game launches on Steam, it will appear as DLC in their store as well. 800 NCoins cost 10 €, so … Continue reading Wildstar’s Jumpstart Pack – Is it worth the price?

One feature I would want in GW2 from WoW

There is one feature that I would truly love to see in Guild Wars 2: Archaeology from World of Warcraft. Let me explain first what archaeology is, for those of you who may not be familiar with World of Warcraft and its professions. Thankfully, I even still had a 10 day free trial of the … Continue reading One feature I would want in GW2 from WoW

Winterfest Event in Wildstar

Now that Halloween is gone, it's time to look forward to the Wintersday festitivities. As much as I like Halloween (orange and green belong to my favourite colours, after all), I usually enjoy the Wintersday events more - mostly the one in Guild Wars 2 with its choir bell and yes, even the jumping puzzle! … Continue reading Winterfest Event in Wildstar

My new second main character

Ever since playing an engineer in Warhammer Online, I have fallen in love with that style. The only thing I missed in Guild Wars 2, was the hammer-weapon. When ArenaNet announced that this would be the very weapon that the engineer gets with their elite specialization, I got very excited! Quite obviously, I had to … Continue reading My new second main character

Rift Krill companion pet

As you may have noticed, we are currently getting an extra "log in gift" while Trion is celebrating the release of the new soul "Primalist" and the new zone "Planetouched Wilds". Today's gift is the "Krill" pet. There's a caveat: Only one character on your account can actually have that pet (from this log in … Continue reading Rift Krill companion pet

GW2: Dyes and staff… (Blaugust Day 29)

What an exciting week for Guild Wars 2! This week, Guild Wars 2 turned 3 years old and to celebrate this, from this point on, all characters will get a very special birthday presents on their own 3rd birthday (yes, this means the character has to be 3 years old, not your account): The Celebratory … Continue reading GW2: Dyes and staff… (Blaugust Day 29)
