I have often seen people ask "Will there be a pet class?" before an MMO released and it appears that this is the deciding factor in whether they're interested in the game. I personally am torn when it comes to these classes: I actually enjoy playing a pet class sometimes, but not as my main … Continue reading Pet classes and MMOs
There are many things I want and expect from MMOs and one thing is housing. I love feeling as if I was in a virtual world and for me, having a little home in there that I can customize is just part of it. I've been what I call a "housing tourist" in some MMOs... … Continue reading Housing in MMOs: Lord of the Rings Online
Welcome to today’s Bookahneer’s Geekwatch and the first Geekwatch in 2014! The place about miscellaneous interesting news related to Guild Wars 2 – and on occasion, other games. We have been relatively quiet for some time, as we had visited bookahnerk's family over New Year's. My plan had been to use the time away from … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (January 5, 2014)
Sometimes I really wish there was just one MMO. The perfect one for me. But you rarely, if ever, find something perfect for you unless it was specifically created just for you and nobody else. All of the MMOs I'm currently playing offer me something that the others can't give me. At the moment, I … Continue reading Juggling through my MMOs
After I had written about the online game I've been playing the longest, I figured I should "revisit" all my MMO characters. Mentioned and shown below are only the ones I called my "main" in games that I have played for more than one month. I couldn't possibly list and show all the twinks and … Continue reading Me and my Mini-Mes…
Edit: We have just gotten an update from Sapience on the official forums. The expansion is postponed and will be released on November 20th instead. I was hoping I could log on to Lotro and buy the expansion (Helm's Deep) tonight. It will cost 4295 Turbine Points for the complete expansion minus the extras you … Continue reading Waiting for Helm’s Deep…
Unfortunately, there aren't many exciting news about housing changes on the horizon, if at all. The most important change at the moment is that the chests available in your personal house will get more expensive when the expansion hits in a few days on November 18. This only counts for housing chests that haven't been … Continue reading Lotro: Buy your housing chests before Helm’s Deep arrives!
The NDA for the beta of Helm's Deep has dropped, so I can now write about my impressions. I had "quit" the game months ago, although "quit" is probably too harsh. I just haven't played it anymore, but especially with my lifetime account, I always have the option of going back. My warden is not … Continue reading Lotro’s class changes
One thing that I'm really disappointed with is the limited visual customization of your characters. For example, I bought Flummi a Tiger Charr Backpack. The problem was that I still only had a rare back item. So I spent 5 gold and 5 guild commendations and bought the Guild Assassin Backpack to put the look … Continue reading GW2: Customize with dyes
