Silly, silly mimic!

Micki's Delirium

The other day, when I and Hamster were running Lines of Supply, one of the end chests turned into a mimic (The mimic event was and is active, turning chests at a random into mimics). But, instead of attacking us like they usually do, this one decided to run away and up the rock to our left.

The mimic running off

There, he found a hole which he fell or dropped down into. Hamster followed and ended up having to use /stuck to get out. I had forgotten that you don’t get your loot from the mimic, but from the pile of gold where the chest was, and as I was standing there trying to click on the mimic, I also ended up in the hole and had to /stuck.

6 Amazing Video Games Sequels That Killed Their Franchises

THE GAME FREAK SHOW

“Max Payne 3 is disappointing” Really?

Publishers love forcing developers to make sequels of games that are successful in previous years and whether it’s for good or bad there should be a point where a video game franchise should stop for obvious reasons. Developers want to stop but Publishers want that sweet cash they get from fans of the series and sometimes developers are forced to create games that they don’t want to! Today we are counting down amazing that killed their franchise

Max Payne 3

Max Payne 3 is a solid game made for the PC, with incredible visuals and sound to go along with that. This is a no brainer for any action shooter fan out there. – Impulsegamer

Max Payne 3 is this generation’s most important third-person shooters. In PC version controls and visual effects are better than PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Max Payne comes back…

Syp’s gaming goals for October

Bio Break

September in review

  • I finished up a full playthrough of West of Loathing, a rather funny western open-world RPG.
  • In Lord of the Rings Online, I blazed through Lhingris and then stuttered to a near-halt in Talath Úrui. Spiders, pit fighting, and jailbreaks were the normal for my activities here.
  • Shadowy Forest complete in Secret World Legends’ Transylvania, and a good chunk of Carpathian Fangs to boot!
  • I fiddled about a bit in both Dungeons and Dragons Online and Neverwinter. Haven’t fully committed to either game, but they’re nice distractions.
  • I finally returned to my KOTOR 2 retro gaming series with more adventures on Nar Shaddaa.
  • As for mobile, I spent most of my time playing both Fallout Shelter or Iron Marines.

October goals

  • At the bare minimum in LOTRO, I want to finish up Mordor’s Talath Úrui. Beyond that, if I can make progress into the…

Server choice and community

GamingSF

A recent discussion touching on server community and choice chimed with certain frustrations that I’ve felt as a MMORPG gamer, it led me to thinking more about whether server choice has impacted my enjoyment and opinions of certain games. Some MMOs, such as Neverwinter or Elder Scrolls Online, avoid this issue by having a so-called ‘megaserver’ – one server that hosts all characters. You only see those characters near you, and there maybe some technical wizardry to segregate busy areas into instanced or sharded zones, but your character can play easily with anyone you wish.

More traditional MMORPGs have separate servers, often with their own distinct community identities or norms. That can be a boon in terms of trying to find the right server for you, or I would suggest often a bad thing since information about server choice is rarely comprehensive and always highly subjective. When starting a new…

Meet the Party: Zweihander

Cannibal Halfling Gaming

A hunter of vermin who’s eyeing much larger prey for her flail to be used on. An old squire without her knight, looking for some vengeance and maybe some glory. A bounty hunter chasing down the biggest score of her life. A coachwoman just trying to make her way along the roads with the strangest group of passengers she’s ever moved. Meet the Party is adding a new system to its collection, but this time the dice are the ones making the choices. That’s right, we’ve got randomly generated characters hoping to survive in the dark, cruel world of Zweihander. It looks like they just might, too: these are some tough ladies!

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Image result for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ultra settings

The Witcher 3 on PC looks absolutely wonderful, particularly if you have a reasonably powerful machine and can see the game in motion at its highest settings. – GameSpot

The Witcher 3 says no to all of this – it’s a great game with a fully realized setting, it’s a joy to play, the business model behind it treats its customers like human beings, and it delivers a story that finally hits…

Raids week 44

Micki's Delirium

Since we were at a concert the week before, there were no raids, but last Saturday I was back at it. For Tempest’s Spine (LTS R2) I got intelligence quickly, but strength was again shining with it’s absence, so when we were almost full one of the party members switched to a str character so we could get started right away. Up until fire & ice we were good.. but then it turned messy. I guess I have gotten used to a few strong casters in the group who can take out the reaver and flenser quickly, but this time people were dying alot, and we just failed at timing over and over again. I was getting frustrated trying to organise without actually telling everyone where to go. Somehow the fire side then got fire pulled closer to the shrine, and I yelled at them to stop and leave him…

Playing D&D with Class: Wizard — The Long Shot

Wizards are colorful and as different from each other as they are from paladins, rangers or monks. Consider the kinds of spells in your spellbook and those you’d like to acquire, and what they might tell you about your wizard.

SNES Classic Edition review: Worth it for the games alone

AIVAnet

The success of last year?s NES Classic Edition clearly took Nintendo by surprise. The company was completely incapable of meeting demand, leaving many people unable to buy what became the must-have gift of the holiday season. Now Nintendo has given its SNES the Classic Edition treatment and promises it?s going to build way more than it did last year.

Having grown up with the SNES (OK, we had a Sega Genesis and my best friend had SNES), it?s easy to assume that everyone knows what it is and why people are so excited that it?s back. After dominating the 8-bit era with the NES, Nintendo came late to the party with its sequel. The SNES launched in ?90 in Japan, ?91 in the US and ?92 in the UK. The Genesis had a two-year head start in almost every country, but Nintendo?s second-generation home console was worth the wait.
