Deconstructing Video Games

Thanks to The Dragon’s Tea Party for sharing the Gamer Confessions Tag. Before I get to my answers, here are a few bloggers I’d like to nominate – would love to know your responses!

Here goes!

A game everyone loves that you can’t stand?

Mario Kart – balloon battle!

Source: http://mariokartwii.wikia.com/

I’m cheating a bit here, because balloon battle is the only part of Mario Kart I can’t stand!

I could never get on with it. The deathmatch mode saps Mario Kart of its energy. For me, it’s tedium. You roam around giant arenas, and on the occasions you close in on your opponents you mistime Koopa shells and skid out on random bananas.

I’ve never thought that Mario Kart was meant to be played this way…

Running epic necro 4 with the static group

Micki's Delirium

Yesterday I wanted to flag Jarvanna for MoD, so me and the static group went to run epic necro 4. In the last update they released druid changes so I ended up having to redo some of my enhancements before running anything. We ran Vol, Inferno and Fleshmaker’s on hard, Ghost on normal and then went back and ran the first three on normal for more xp. Then I wanted to try Ghost on hard, and we did that successfully without too much issues. Here are a couple of pictures from Inferno.

Another new change to the wolf, they now sit when shrining

Phoenix Clan; my guild

Micki's Delirium

I’ve been a member of Phoenix Clan since 2013, and when Osi quit playing he gave me lead. Osi came back, I gave him lead, he left again, I got it back and have since then kept it. Before last time that Osi quit he spent a lot of time farming for items to sell on the shard auction house and through it managed to buy us the Kraken and all the amenities for it. After he left I rearranged the amenities and spent shards (and plat) on upgrading them to the max.

When I first joined the guild we had some people in it who’ve been there almost since the beginning (the guild was founded in 2011), and I invited some people who I enjoyed running with and were looking to switch guilds. I also attempted to recruit some more for the guild with a post on the ddo…

Vault of the Lapis Monk

Dyson's Dodecahedron

Cut into the cliffs near Terrek’s Wall is a solitary sealed doorway. Beyond it is the vault of the famed Lapis Monk, entombed for long centuries. The vault has lain undisturbed for ages – the doorway secured both in construction and by magic.

Vault of the Lapis Monk Vault of the Lapis Monk

But time has her way. A portion of the cliff face has fallen, exposing an internal passage within the vault. Trapped chambers lay in both directions to those who would explore via this new entrance – but since when did common sense and traps prevent a little bit of dungeoneering?

5 NES Games That I Played Far Too Much

I Played The Game!

Whilst it wasn’t my first machine for gaming, the NES was one of the most significant gaming systems I ever owned.  Over its many, many years of loyal service I played a lot of games on it, either owned or borrowed.  Some stuck in my memory for various reasons, some good, some bad.  The games below are the ones I remember playing far more than others over those formative years, for better or worse.  Take a look!

The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda

Alright, let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way here.  I loved this game and played it so many times.  Yes, I opened the map that came with it for if you were stuck.  Yes, I used the “Zelda” cheat.  And yes, I needed a guide to get to the end of the game.  But damn was it a great journey at the time.

Raids week 72

Micki's Delirium


Last Saturday I logged on a bit after 9 pm Swedish time, and posted for babas hard. I forget who it was, but someone said during last raids that we should start doing baba’s hard, since the normal runs were going so well, and I agreed. By 9.30 I had a full group of mostly people that have joined my groups before. As always I asked the party to split up for puzzles, the first run through we ended up with 5 and 7, but second time we were 6 and 6.  Puzzles completed in no time and when we got to the end fight, I wanted us to kill the wisps and the shamblers… but then said ‘why not just kill everything’. We did and as it turns out it made the end fight so much easier. The raid completed in 36 minutes with only a few deaths. Spite…

Gamer Crash Predicts E3 2018: Nintendo

Gamer Crash

The E3 prediction train keeps on chugging along! Did you miss my previous E3 2018 predictions? What are you waiting for, head back to read all about Microsoft and Sony!

Nintendo continues to roll right along, wiping away any memory of the failed WiiU console. Seriously though, I’m happy that Nintendo has managed to reclaim its magic with the Switch. It’s a fantastic console and I was afraid the company wouldn’t be able to recover from the WiiU. In this case, I’m more than happy to be wrong.

gamerPredicts

With Zelda and Mario already providing unbelievably fantastic experiences for Switch owners, the big question for Nintendo is how they manage to keep that momentum going strong. We already know one piece of the puzzle: Super Smash Bros. Everything else is presently unclear.

My feeling for this E3 is that Nintendo is going to continue to reveal exclusive games to draw…
