LotRO cleans up the Warden's act {Massively}

Mar 9th 2012 10:58PM Ever since Isengard was released, I could tell that the warden was dragging behind in their abilities. Perhaps the problem was that their abilities were not scaling right or that the new stat changes made it difficult to perform in combat. It was quite obvious that the warden was becoming a less effective tank.

I'm not telling people to avoid bringing in a warden to tank. A good warden can tank just as much as a good captain can tank. The issue is that the amount of effort put forth in order to be a good warden can drain all the fun out of the experience. I am happy to finally see the warden changes front and center.

The Daily Grind: Have media impressions affected your excitement level for Guild Wars 2? {Massively}

Feb 21st 2012 9:02AM I've seen videos of giant dragons, unique combat, being able to dodge, use last resort abilities, switch spells on the fly, attack giant bosses early in the game, and the chance to combine abilities for more versatile mechanics.

When I see the ideas flow back and forth, I tend to get excited. Then again, I did get excited about Warhammer Online when they were shooting ideas with retro quest tracking, environment group events, and PvP matches. We all know how that game ended up.

CCP revisiting EVE's new player experience {Massively}

Feb 17th 2012 11:23AM @fallwind Agreed. They continue to revise the new player experience but after the tutorial, they sort of throw you out there in the open. Despite the massive trolling from more experienced players, I think what killed me is that there was no PvE.

I would like more reward in exploration, interaction, and discovery. Be retro - instead of 'Go To X,' how about 'Thanks for coming to X." It will encourage people to see new places. Then again, I haven't played EVE for so long that maybe they changed all that.

The Daily Grind: How many chat channels do you use? {Massively}

Feb 9th 2012 9:01AM Usually just 1. A global channel usually takes over to inform me everything and anything. It gets the most traffic and people tend to avoid the LFG or Trade Channels. The global channel isn't restricted to a certain area either. Every now and then I'll check guild chat or team chat when needed.

You should get The Cat That Got The Milk {Joystiq}

Feb 5th 2012 10:47PM Beginning of Clip: Alright, lets see the magic.
60 Seconds In: Just another one of those games...
End of Clip: O.o

Captain's Log: A year in review {Massively}

Feb 5th 2012 12:19AM I personally enjoyed all of the revamps and changes made since launch. The graphics and new areas have been a blast to see. Yet every time I turn around, there is a problem that sneaks up and annoys me to death. It is as if the game is hollow, still in beta, lacking cohesion, or very raw - however you want to say it. There has been a saying floating around that Cryptic "fixes one thing and then breaks another."

The game only kept me going for a good month before I ran out of things to do. I fear the same will be true as I continue trying the game again as F2P.

The Daily Grind: How much searching do you want in your game? {Massively}

Jan 15th 2012 9:51PM I actually do enjoy randomly going places all on my own. The part that annoys me is when I visit a cave, clear all the enemies, loot all the chests, head into town, then someone tells me to go find his item in the exact cave I just cleared. To make it even worse is when I go checking out places, see a giant named wolf, kill it, head back into town, and then a guy tells me to go kill (yet again) the named wolf.

I do not want the directional objective marks to go away. Every now and then my brain goes numb and I spend 10 minutes looking for an item that was perhaps right next to the quest-giver. I do want to be able to obtain items and retrieve them beforehand. Seems like modern quests punish people by having them revisit the same areas they have explored beforehand.

The Daily Grind: Do you rush to endgame? {Massively}

Seems to be the same with me. I want to see everything from start to finish, but the challenge of joining a raid group and then completing the content is far too troublesome than its worth.
