Rift: New mount 6th Anniversary Parade Tuskar (Giveaway soon!)

Isn't this a real beauty? I've received this mount, the 6th Anniversary Parade Tuskar, as a member of the Trion Worlds Creator Program! Rift is turning 6 years old this month, so that mount is part of the 6th anniversary celebration. I have no idea if there are other ways for you to obtain the … Continue reading Rift: New mount 6th Anniversary Parade Tuskar (Giveaway soon!)

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?

This weekend’s surprising highlight

When I was thinking about what to do with this weekend (related to gaming, of course, not to other mostly RL stuff), I had a lot of games in my mind. Wildstar or Guild Wars 2 most of all. Some more Hand of Fate, if I can deal with the frustration of being so bad … Continue reading This weekend’s surprising highlight

Coming to Trove next: Welcome Screen, Meownts & Budgies

Trove's development isn't slowing down. Here you can find the written notes from last Friday's livestream. You can also watch the video on Twitch. Everything they showed during the livestream (as opposed to merely mentioning and talking about it) will go live this Tuesday! The video settings will find a place in the user interface, … Continue reading Coming to Trove next: Welcome Screen, Meownts & Budgies

The Vox Budgie!

Trove is already finished with updating and the first thing I did now was log in, log out, switch to Rift and grab that little mount out of my inbox. It's "bind on pickup", so you can't trade or sell it to other players. You will get this mount with every character on your account! … Continue reading The Vox Budgie!

Coming to Trove next: Water update, Pirate Captain, more mounts…

Yesterday's Trove livestream on Twitch brought us some news on what to expect next in the game. I tried to catch and write down all the interesting bits: Dances, new mounts, information on the next new class (the Pirate Captain), the water and underground updates, recent additions to the game and upcoming changes to existing … Continue reading Coming to Trove next: Water update, Pirate Captain, more mounts…

Trove Robo Raptor mount

Sometimes, I can't believe my luck. I had a look at the dev trackers I'm following earlier today (for Guild Wars 2, Trove and Rift) and saw this post where Ocho explains that the Robo Raptor mount in Trove is an exclusive giveaway item they are handing out to streamers in order to help promote … Continue reading Trove Robo Raptor mount

LotRO: PAX/GC-mount giveaway

Yes, you read the headline correctly. We have a giveaway. As I'd hinted (very subtly ;) ) in one of my previous entries, we brought back 6 extra coupons for mounts (people got them but didn't always want them). You can see it in the picture on the left. Steeds of Middle Earth have a … Continue reading LotRO: PAX/GC-mount giveaway
