DDO: puzzling a solution

GamingSF

Having played a good amount of Divinity Original Sin 2 recently, I have come across many instances where the group has been able to puzzle out a solution to a blockage to progress or a challenging fight through strategy and the application of items in our possession. This isn’t really about puzzles as in-game tests, but rather how you can take more than one approach to moving past an obstacle or defeating a tough opponent.

It’s a type of gameplay enabled very much by the RPG roots of D&D and similar games, in Divinity there are many different elemental-style effects and spells to consider when fighting enemies – some will have a greater effect, others a lesser or even inverted effect (e.g. poison healing undead opponents). The heritage of this is clear to see in D&D and is similarly well modelled in Dungeons & Dragons Online as well.

Lockboxes Suck, So How Should MMOs Monetize?

Occasional Hero

I don’t write a lot about bad monetization, because honestly, I mostly just shake my head and try to ignore it. As MMO players get more and more spread out across more games than I can count, populations of individual games keep declining. Unfortunately, in reaction to this, studios seem to have shifted focus from trying to bring in as many players as possible and keep them there to simply trying to milk the loyal players for more and more money, and the cash extraction method of choice in recent years has been lockboxes. And it’s not just an MMO problem. Physical TCGs have been doing this forever, and digital ones are no different. Pretty much every mobile game I’ve ever played has some kind of gacha mechanic. And now it’s starting to show up in mainstream AAA games like the new Star Wars Battlefront II (the 2017 one by…

The Poisoner’s Tower

Dyson's Dodecahedron

The Poisoner keeps to himself and is a hard man to find. Few know that the studious sage in the tower outside of town is the old assassin and that the plants he grows are almost all poisonous, venomous, or both.

The Poisoner's Tower The Poisoner’s Tower

Most people coming to visit the tower do so seeking the sage’s advice – officially usually political or botanical, but often looking for access to the assassin’s guild or to acquire poisons and antitoxins.

The structure contains large window boxes for growing poisonous plants, some lab space to work on the poisoner’s craft, and the usual things you’d expect to find in an odd home (bedroom, study, secret basement with even secreter basement with a nice sturdy locking closet for keeping people against their will, or for locking yourself into to pretend to be someone needing rescue, etc.)

4 Amazing Online Video Games with Decent Communities

THE GAME FREAK SHOW

If you play online games you know how bad things can get. 12 Years old everywhere raging while they are losing or just can’t keep up with the competition. Almost every popular online game has a community filled with toxicity and that is really bad for a game reputation as it will discourage newcomers to join a specific popular game. But some games have really good communities and today we are counting those games which have decent (NOT GREAT) communities. Hope you guys like it!

Loot Crate Sealed Their Fate With Loot Vault: The Rise And Fall Of A Subscription Box

Musings of a Mario Minion

Nerd Block’s site has been conspicuously down for the past few weeks, 1Up Box has put its prices up, and gaming subscription box giant Loot Crate is losing voices with each delivery it makes. This time two years ago, these monthly deliveries of gamey, geeky goodness were firing on all cylinders. In 2017, they’re losing steam at an alarming rate.

The concept still stands tall. Pay between $20 and $40 a month and receive a curated collection of surprise merchandise delivered straight to your door. At their height, geek and gaming subscription boxes were taking over YouTube unboxings and a handful of blogging communities, inspiring intense excitement and loyal followers. Then something happened that only a small number of enterprises can withstand. They got too big, too fast.

Loot Crate began shipping their monthly boxes of a selection of geeky items to a small following in 2012. Marketed as a…
