Dancing Mog Minions

We dance, they dance. We all dance! After patch 2.0 we recieved a number of new dances available. If you pay attention long enough you can see players dancing out in the streets. But I bet you didn’t know this. The mog minion recieved about a week ago along with the fat chocobo can dance too. In fact, if it comes near another mog from another player they will all dance together. So maybe now is the time to be merry and dance together before the release of patch 2.25 on Wednesday.

On another note. There is some excitement and wonderment as to what will be included in patch 2.25. I can’t wait to see what Square is offering this time and what’s in store.

Side note: Did anyone notice that in Sunken Temple of Quarn how the pillar that was doom proof is now gone? Yes, one of my favorite bugs is gone. Well, it was fun while it lasted.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

For a couple months I have been following the progress of “Dragon Age: Inquisition and I have to say.  I’m impressed if Inquisition is anything that it promises to be it should be real treat upon it’s release in Oct of 2014.

The original trailer that released a few months ago made Dragon Age Inquisition appear to be breathtaking. This trailer does nothing short than tickle my interest. When it is released on PC I will be sure to drop by and pick up this title. Hold stead for my review in October when the title is released.

Amazing Moments in Final Fantasy XIV: ARR

There will always be new players when you use the duty finder in FFXIV. But some moments make for an interesting story. My recent experience was thus so. In one of the level 30 guildheist I ran into such an experience, and an inexperienced Tank. I was playing as the healer, and the Tank would not build enmity on adds. I even postponed casts to give him time to flash or grab adds to draw them off. On the flip side, my DPS weren’t doing anything about adds either and they weren’t closing up the portals that were spawning adds either. This posed a severe problem for me. Surprisingly…we beat it.

I spent the entirety of the Guildheist running the adds around in circles alternating between the tank and myself. I kept this up for about 3-4 minutes. My mana got about half way down before the adds got to about 20 and I couldn’t keep up any longer. I died…But, the rest of the party managed to kill off the remainder of the adds by syphoning them into a circle while dps knocked them off one by one. We won, and I got the exp I needed to reach the next level.

I was proud to notice that I recieved all of the commendations. But one thing I wanted to note to new players. If you think there may be a way to improve the way you play please do it. Look to your Free Company for advice on a particular class or browse the forums to see what other people are doing. This is my best advice. There is more than one way to do something, but there are certainly better ways to do things. Then there are rules that should be followed to maximize your capability’s. Do some research and have fun guys!

But I want to hear your story, and what happened. Whether it be a save in a massive dungeon or just another run gone wrong. I want to hear one of your moments.

Dark Knight: Arkham Origins, First Impressions: The First 3 hours

PC Version of Arkham Origins

Arkham Origins starts out early in Batmans career. But in comparison to Arkham City, and Arkham Asylum this makes Batman no less brutal. In fact, while playing Batman Arkham Origins I couldn’t help but notice the level of brutality of Batman. I hadn’t noticed this same level of brutality in the previous batman games. While your playing as Batman you almost feel bad for the criminals. Batman is cruel! That was my first impression of the first couple of hours of the content. I could hear the sounds of skulls crunching, and spines snapping as batman heartlessly beat the metaphoric crap out of the bad guys. There is also a true sense of fear towards “The Bat” in this games that brings me back to the original batman movie. No, not the goofy one from the 70’s and 80’s. But the first dark batman movie. Yes, this game lives up to it’s expectations up to the first three hours. Facing Slade for the first time and getting my ass handed to me felt good. The enemy was challenging, and more than a match for batman. So far I feel that the moves could have been drawn up a little better in these fights. I find myself repeating the same moves over and over again. Plus, I couldn’t help but notice a couple of simple glitches. For example, getting stuck on a chimney while trying to grapple to another building. It was humorous, but things like this make the game more difficult in life threatening situations. Like maybe while I’m hauling ass because someone is shooting it. Moments like this are far more difficult because of these types of glitches.

These are my first impressions of Arkham Origins. I will be detailing the title further more at a later time.

Shadow of Mordor Release Date Confirmed!

If you have been waiting patiently for the release date for “Shadow of Mordor” your long wait is over. A release date has finally been set. If you haven’t been following this far then you will want to catch up on some of the media revolving around the game and the content.

In Shadow of Mordor you play as Talion.  A half man, half wraith hybrid.  He has been tasked with guarding the black gates of mordor.  But what makes this title significant from the run of the mil LOTR games are your enemies.  Enemies now have the ability to think and judge whether they should enter combat or retreat.  They can determine if they are winning or losing, and you have the choice to wound, capture or kill.  These choices will play a heavy roll in how your gaming experience ends.  Enemies that were wounded by your blade may come back to kill you later on.  They may even come back with twice the number of minions.  But this is what I believe will make Shadow of Mordor an eye opener in the LOTR series of games.  For a small preview I cannot wait to see what’s in store.

Below you can see some of the gameplay provided by Machinima:

The Shadow of Mordor is set to release on Oct 7th. On Oct. 7th we will final get the opportunity to hack our way through the goblin hordes and exact our revenge.
