Hey peeps, I am back for a while, the real world can be crazy sometimes and is about to go crazier soon, the thing is that for some reason I am taking a small break of the real world and I am once again looking for stuff about games and so forth...
So the thing is... Neverwinter...!!! A lot of people is talking about that game, they are hyping it because is Neverwinter and because the original NW games had a bunch of fans. Not to mention that a lot of the trailers and the videos around the net look so good. I understand there is some reasons to hype this game.
After all, the old Neverwinter games are kinda fun and they do have a sense of complexity in the game, it was fun to play and in the end, every neverwinter game, is a cult game. If you ask me, the old Neverwinter game had its own merits and it was fun to play. It is normal to have a massive hype train in some high profile games, like a sequel to a beloved game by some people.
Unfortunately, I am a bit concern because Cryptic studi
Hey peeps, I was chilling in EB today when I player with the Anet logo in its name walked by, after a while, I realized that it was a someone very important, like a GM, developers or something like that... Or at least that is what people said in the in the map channel.
I dont really know what the heck they are doing, all I know is that they are simply playing. I dont know if walking around with the Anet logo is a good idea at all, everyone was cluttering around them because of their celebrity status in the game, after all they have the Anet logo!!!!
But!!! The most important thing is that all 'thieves' from the other servers ganked them up a few times with all the stealth crap they have. That way, the devs can have a taste of what Bullcrap tastes like, Pop from nowhere. Kill in 2 seconds, stealth, finish blow, go away in stealth.
Its too darn bad that no thief tried the stealth lock on a capture point... That will be hilarious as hell, not to mention that the chat tab will be pri
TERA Online was re-released as a F2P title around 3 weeks ago, adding new servers and a patch with some new content. As a new player, the F2P model was the main event. I do enjoy new content and shinnies in my favorite games but considering that I am new in this game, adding more stuff in my first day is not going to feel like something new was added because the whole game is new to me. Or at least, it was new when I first got it… 3 weeks ago…
So here is the thing, after playing the game for so many hours and leveling up so many levels, I have to stop playing it on a regular basis. Don’t get me wrong, the game is fun but after running on the tread-mill for several days… I mean, playing the game for several days, I am tire of it.
You see, this is not about the time invested in the game, is about the quality of the time, what you do in the game to have fun. TERA Online is a fun game to play but it wears out very quickly.
Here is my small list about what I think are the flaws of this game.
Guild Wars 2 is dying!!!!
I am kidding, the game is not dead, or at least it doesn't look like a rotting carcass to me, right now all the servers in NA have a very healthy population, by no means the population is dwindling. If you check the servers and you take a closer look in Lions Arch, you will notice that there is a bunch of people in the game, in general they are having fun in the game and having a good time in it.
I understand that the open world feels kinda empty right now because for some reason the vagrant feeling of the PvE areas is not that appealing but Arenanet said something about fixing it or at least improve it because I dont really think that is broken at all. Its fine, they just need to tweak it and enhance it.
In general, the game is alive, I dont even know why in the hell some people is saying that the game is dead and empty, I get into the game and my own gut tells me that this game is not going to die any time soon. As a matter of fact, I believe that at some poi
Hey peeps, do you guys think that the mmo market already have 3 generations…? Each one of them with its special place in the history books of gaming…? or, are you more classic and believe that we only have the old school mmos, pre-2004 and the ones released in 2004 and beyond...?
This is not about graphics... ok...
I have to be honest, sometimes I do feel that we do have 3 generations because we have 3 kinds of mmos, or at least in general we have 3 basic design approaches, Sandbox, Standard and GW2 Hearts...
As far as I can remember, the first one is the one involving the sandboxes, freedom to do stuff in the game world and mess with it, games like Ultima, EVE, Pre-CU Galaxies (RIP), Perpetuum and a few others are in the first group of mmos. I know that they are old games, but in general, the first generation is old!
That probably explains why the old school sandbox fans are always complaining, we don’t get those games anymore, or at least we don’t get them on a regular basis. Some playe
Hey peeps, lets get right into it...
What the heck is going on in the 'Ostgarath' region...? The frame rate is not what it used to be in other places and the GPUs are not getting a big load anyways... After doing some research, I found some interesting information about the game threading and how it works on the processor.
Take a look at the picture, GPU usage is not exactly that high but the frame rate doesn't go up... (GPU usage is around 18%, the frame rate is around 26...)
Of course, we all know that TERA is not about the GPU, the secret here is the CPU... So after killing a few mobs and so on, I open up the task manager... Played an aditional minute around the place (populating the data) and then I Alt+Tab...
The results are kinda strange... 1 core is all the way up!!! The other ones, not so much... I tried playing with the CPU affinity but all of the cores are selected under the TERA.exe client...
As you can see, I have one of those Ivy Bridge processors, they are not exactly a to
TERA (The Exiled Realm of Arborea), is now a F2P title, so you can download the game and get into it right away. I understand that there is a bunch of complains about this game and a lot of people hate it, but as a F2P title, it’s a whole different thing because the freebie component is actually good, it have some limitations but at least is playable, not like SWTOR and its P2G business model and at least they are not taking away the hotbars!
Something that I have to point out is that ‘TERA: Rising’ is the original TERA, the new name is a marketing move. TERA Rising is like saying… Hey…! Our game is free, check it out.
TERA, as a F2P title, is basically the same thing as before, the main difference is that now you can play it for free, so get ready for some pew pew, action combat, butts, chicken breasts and the usual sexy feeling of TERA, characters showing up skin and apparently in the world of TERA, loom is some sort of luxurious resource. I hope you guys know what I mean by that
GeForce Experience (Beta) is a new tool made by nvidia. In theory, this tool should be able to optimize your games and enhance your gaming experience. The reality is a different thing all around.
When I first downloaded this tool, I was expecting something very useful and flexible like Steam with steroids, tons of tweaks like the old school RivaTuner and a lot of useful gadgets for me to tinker with. Unfortunately, the tool does so little and it can be very annoying sometimes.
The tool do two basic things, update your video drivers and optimize your settings. That’s it!!! What else can I do with this tool…?
Updating my video drivers is not so difficult, as a matter of fact, the nvidia drivers suite have its own updater, this feature is redundant and unnecessary, not to mention that is very lacking because I have to update the rest of my drivers manually. What is the point of the nvidia driver updater anyways, it barely does what is supposed to be doing…
The other feature is the
Hey peeps, today I manage to finish the last quest in the GW2 storyline, after months of procrastination, I manage to get a group today and I finally killed Zhaitan, the antagonist in Guild Wars 2.
The thing is that instead of feeling a nice sensation of joy inside myself, I feel kinda mad because the final moments after the quests are so friggin lackluster! The fight as it is, is kinda cool and awesome but after that, all your NPC friends start babbling about throwing up a party and that other dragons are around so you can expect more fights soon.
I understand that we won!!! We defeated Zhaitan!!! But do we have to screw up the moment with childish babbling and the anti-climax idea that we have other dragons around, not to mention that now the new story is kinda spoiled up because I know that we are going to fight some damn dragons once again… It feels that all I get is a damn “To Be Continued” on the screen, not exactly an ending.
Awesome battle, lackluster aftermatch...
We all know that
MechWarrior Online is classic, traditional and old school. The MWO is not like a shooter with Mechs, it’s like a tank simulator with Mechs (Tanks with Legs). If you ever played one of the old MechWarrior games, Counter Strike or World of Tanks, this game is going to feel a bit familiar to you, or at least it did to me. They share some mechanics and some of the complexity behind the gameplay.
MWO follows the classic slow pace gameplay found in the old MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries, you do tons of shooting and moving but in the end, the game is not about killing 10 players in 10 seconds. So… If you can’t take all the shooting and fireworks with limited results… MWO is not your cup of tea.
The gameplay in MechWarrior is the main feature of the game, because is not like a standard shooter in its own right, it’s something else, the mechanics on this game is what makes the whole thing special, moving around in one direction and twisting your torso is one thing, doing it right it’s another t
