Yes, this is the Daily Blogroll MY OWN BLOG didn’t want you to see!
I’m kinda tired of Free Realms. Not the game; heck, considering my computer now refuses to run Lord of the Rings Online for long, I’ve been spending most of my gaming time in Free Realms. Beau is having fun playing. Pete at Dragonchasers took a 75 degree turn and went from being marginal about the game to a fan in just three short days. Syp of Bio Break is still dubious, but what does he care — his wife is Tinker Bell!
MBP at Mind-Bending Puzzles writes about a traditional Irish card game named “Twenty-Five”, the second most complicated card game in the world. The first most complicated? The Free Realms trading card game.
As far as I know, Station Access members are still NOT members in Free Realms, even though we were told we would be. This is still annoying me even as I work on the non-member jobs, Ninja (lv 7), Miner (lv 11) and Cook (lv 8).
Sure, some goof in World of Warcraft may have gone around using a GM item to one-shot every raid in the game, but did you realize that an NPC in Wizard 101 was giving out free dragon pets? So take THAT, WoW!
Lars of MMOment of Zen has a final verdict on the City of Heroes Architect system: No matter how innovative the missions, they still work like every other CoH mission — run through a maze, hunting randomly placed stuff.
Psychochild looks at crafting through the ages, with a deeper look at how EverQuest II’s crafting has changed since launch, what they did right and how it could still be improved.
When I read that Aventurine was adding solo-friendly islands to Darkfall, my first thought was, “go here to find a lot of solo people to gank”. Syncaine, however, is liking these new changes to the Darkfall PvE experience. I’m betting Syncaine is secretly thinking “target-rich environment”…
I STILL think DOMO is one of the best social MMOs going. I’m still looking for a decent exploration MMO. No, EVE Online is NOT an exploration MMO… it’s an Achiever MMO, exploration doesn’t really mean that much when everyplace you go is pretty much just like every other place. It comes closest, though. I’m desperately hoping Cryptic’s Star Trek Online IS, though. I’m tired of Achiever MMOs.
Lastly, Runes of Magic is in danger of becoming last week’s fad, but Scopique is right in there playing and wondering just how long Runes of Magic can keep skimming the best parts of other MMOs into itself to become the All-Devouring Uber MMO.
See ya tomorrow! Keep gaming!
Oh, and Wizard 101 and Star Trek Online devs? I apologize in advance, okay? You’ll see what I mean… later…
