Wurm Online, WildStar, and FFXIV

 

Wow, I haven’t made a blog post since April 7th! I just haven’t had the time, as much as I wish I did. Most of my days are filled with work, and when I’m not working I’m sleeping or getting a few household chores done. I do still fit in some gaming here and there, mostly to regroup and relax after the things mentioned above. I decided to create a new alt in WildStar, to start. I love my Chua Spellslinger, but I decided I wanted to see how the other side lives (a common occurrence with MMOs, especially for myself) so I decided to create a human medic. I know, it’s not that exciting but the character is quite fun to play. I created a little back story, and so far she’s level 18. Still a long way to go. I picked the soldier path this time, my main character is an explorer. It’s a lot of smashing of things which is fine by me.

In Wurm Online, well. It’s exciting times there. I picked up a new priest (Vynora), a new deed (up North) and a set of drake. I set up a merchant at one of the markets up North that seems to get quite a bit of players passing through and made my first 5 silver in a very long time. Granted it was because I sold some rewards I had been given ages ago (a breastplate and some ore) but a sale is a sale, and it was nice. Of course I promptly went back to the market to restock and to do a bit of shopping. I walked away with a new leather at that looks like Indiana Jones wore it, a bassinet helm because my drake didn’t come with one, some Mol Rehan banners, and a Mol rehan guard tower that I’ll have to complete some time. I spent about 1.5 silver which I’m quite pleased with. Oh and I picked up 8 source crystals which will no doubt come in handy. I think people underestimate how awesome karma is (though I do wish I could port between alliance deeds with karma).

I’m also still playing FFXIV though my time in that game has been quite limited this week. I’ve been working up my crafting and harvesting skills because it’s just so relaxing. The guild I’m in (well, Free Company) is going strong, and it’s nice to see so many people around. I’m quite pleased at the come back that FFXIV has made, it’s a huge change from when I played before the re-release.

All in all being busy isn’t exactly bad. It just takes away some (all?) of my game time but I still manage to log in here and there. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend, and lets hope that I don’t go quite so long before my next update! As always, happy gaming no matter where you find yourself.

Ding, 15 on Ragefire

Thanks to the early orc camps I was able to inch my way to level 14 and that made a huge difference to me because that’s when I got my next tier pet, and it conned yellow to me instead of dark blue. Once I picked up the spells I thought I would use (there’s no use in picking up every single spell right now, plus I just don’t have the funds) I headed back to that bandit camp that was giving me such problems before. This time I was able to easily break the camp and settled in to a nice round of killing for the next little while. The magician managed to ding level 15, and 32% in – the druid hit level 15 and 5% in before I called it a day. I need a bit of a break from camping to work tradeskills and of course gather my level 15 spells.

For the mage that means another pet – but I’m not going to pick it up because I’m happy with the current one I have, and all pets this tier will be the same level. I also got a new nuke that does far more damage than the last one. It’s over 100 damage instead of 42. I’m sure it also uses a lot more mana, too. The druid reaching 15 means the first of her port spells, Ring of Karana and Ring of Surefall Glade. I’ll be doing some traveling to pick those up, because who wouldn’t want their port spells. That’s a big plus of being a druid. She also got a new skin like rock spell at 14 that I haven’t picked up yet.

The game is bustling with players. There are over 400 magicians in chat this morning, along with over 400 in my ‘regular’ channels preventing me from joining them. People are all over the starter towns, and yesterday there were 5 instances of Commonlands up. The main one had 90 players and each subsequent instance had 40+. It’s really nice to see the game get so much love. I can’t help but wonder how long it will last.

Here’s Why Zelda: Triforce Heroes Won’t Let You Play as a Female

The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes lets you team up with three friends to conquer dungeons in the Zelda universe. But even though there are three heroes and a bunch of different costumes to wear, there will not be a female character playable in the game.

In an interview with, director Hiromasa Shikata explained that Triforce Heroes’ story requires male heroes, leaving no room for playable female leads. He said that the story focuses on a prophecy, which was made with male heroes in mind. “The story calls for this sort of legend/prophecy where heroes will come together to help solve a problem,” Shikata stated. “And in that, they are male characters. So, because the game is set with that as the story background, you cannot choose a gender; you are a male character.”
When the interviewer expressed disappointment with this explanation, Shikata said that the developer doesn’t see a big problem with this choice and that there’s still room in the game for women to become personally invested in it. He said, “I understand what you’re saying, and just as general information, we do have a lot of female staff members who are playing this game and enjoying it. It doesn’t seem to be a big issue to them. They still are getting emotional investment in this game. And to be honest, Link isn’t the most masculine of guys in the world, depending on how you want to project yourself into the character.”

The Legend of Zelda: Triforce Heroes focuses on co-op puzzle-solving and monster-battling, with an emphasis on crafting different outfits with different stats. It launches later this year for the 3DS. You can watch our E3 impressions of the game here.

Just Cause 3 Dev Thinking About Bringing Mods to Consoles

 

The Just Cause series has had robust modding communities, and developer Avalanche is trying to make Just Cause 3 as open to mods as it can. It may even be looking to bring the game’s mods to consoles.

During an appearance on GameSpot’s E3 2015 stage, game director Roland Lesterlin said that the studio has been working on expanding mod availability and is thinking about bringing support to consoles. “We’ve been wanting to do quite a lot of that stuff for awhile,” he responded when asked about Fallout 4’s mod support on the Xbox One and if Avalanche has any similar plans. “We’re not announcing anything there yet, but… we would want to support [mods] as much as possible.”
During its E3 conference, Fallout developer Bethesda announced that mods for Fallout 4 can be used on the Xbox One and, later, the PlayStation 4. Because Microsoft is helping Bethesda solve problems related to bringing mods to consoles, the support will only be on the Xbox for a period of time after release.

Avalanche showed off Just Cause 3 at E3, and you can read our impressions of the game here. It launches on December 1 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
