BWE #3 or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Waited in Queue

It was to be expected i suppose, being beta and all.  With the server caps raised and fewer server overall, the beginner zones were completely packed.  We really didn’t get a chance to do any WvW either due to some bug on Anet’s side that cut the population caps in half.  That’s what beta’s are for i suppose and really …

Guild Wars 2 – BWE2

Another beta weekend event drew to a close leaving us feeling empty inside until the next one.  I managed to capture a ridiculous amount of pics and video that i have to sift through and try to make some sense of in the next few days.  Most of this will consist of WvW action, which VI spent the majority of …

Stress Test World vs. World

In the short 7 hours we all got to play on Monday, VI decided to spend most of it in World vs. World PVP.  It’s amazing how great MMO PVP can be when there’s no silly PVP stat or gear.  I’m looking at you valor, resilience, or whatever the hell else devs are stupid enough to continuously implement.  Also the …

Guild Wars 2 – BWE1

The long awaited weekend was upon us and VI dove in head first into ArenaNet’s follow up to the award winning Guild Wars.  This time however, what we have is an actual full fledged MMO.  Let me start right there and reiterate how fantastic that aspect really is. The game world is outstanding in every detail possible.  I spent more …

TERA Beta

Got a chance to try out TERA’s beta this past weekend.  I’ll start off by saying that i couldn’t really get a fair assessment of the game because i had nothing but GW2 on my mind.  I also have no actual desire to purchase or pre-order due to GW2, so i was just playing to play and have fun. The …

Rift Beta 1 & 2

It’s that time again folks. Time for another beta ! After my disappointments with Aion and then the debacle that was FFXIV, i went into Rift not expecting much. I’m happy to report that so far i’ve been really entertained with what’s available to us in the closed beta. First off the level limit is locked at 20 and to …

FFXIV Beta Thoughts

I was finally able to snag a beta code and have a go at a game i’ve been waiting 4 years for. I’ll start off by saying that i realize this is the beta version and things may change before release, but unfortunately it’s not bugged mechanics or lag that has me concerned. Sure that plays a part but it’s …

Aion Beta Weekend #4

Level 25 is the cap this time and i have to say, 20-25 is a lot more fun than 1-20. I’m sure it’s because i’m a Templar and we pretty much suck without some important stigmas and abilities we get later on. Right now the ranged damage dealer classes have whooped my butt and i don’t see that changing til …

Aion Beta #3

Cap was raised to 20 this time so we got to have some fun for 5 days. All i can say is that i’m having fun so far and i can only see it getting better once more friends start playing upon release. Hit a wall at level 17 for a bit as we ran out of quests that we …

Aion Closed Beta

Obviously tons of people are waiting for this game and we got to fuck around on it this weekend. Let me say so far i’m loving it, but it’s still early. For one, it’s capped at level 10. Secondly, my PC barely meets the minimum requirements. I took some screen shots of myself and Bastilla questing and whatnot. I have …
