STATUS September 14, 2009


Ok I backed out of my Champions Online Preorder. I kind of lost interest and trying to save a little bit of money too. I also got rid of my Warhammer subscription.

Lately Ive been playing Dungeons & Dragons Online since its free and I wanted to try it to see how much was done since they published this game. I’m actually impressed with it. Its really story-driven. Graphics-wise its probably at par with Guild Wars. There are limits since its a free game like there’s a fee if you want to create a Monk or a Drow character and such. Not so bad really.

I didn’t think much on the names since they’re going to be wiped soon anyway.

Kabutocan (I like the Kanji character names on the shoulder pads, you cant see it from this angle, click on the image to get a different view)
Kabutocan: Armored guy

Salome (the knives around his costume are all fake lol)
Salome: sword guy

Martine (I got this guy up to level 7, I wanted the 1920’s or 30s crimefighter look)
Martine: Pistol fighter

Barduk (First character I made, wears a skirt above his pants)
Barduk: martial arts

Eizenzhan (Fallen angel look, looks great when flying)
Eizenzhan: Other-worldy character

Beta: First Thoughts… August 10, 2009

So I made a few characters in Champions Online, too bad it’s the beta so they’ll probably be erased after the weekend. Costuming is quite a fun for those who are into it. I took some screenshots but I think its not a good idea to post them while the game isn’t out yet. I probably tried a few power sets, I’m still trying to get used to the controls since they also added ‘blocking’ as an ability which is actually a great idea.
Not sure if its a good idea to discuss more details since it’s just the beta. Might end up getting in trouble in this.

I also played Batman : Arkham Asylum Demo over the weekend which took me maybe…. 10 minutes? I thought it was fun, one part of it is repeatable if you like trying to beat up goons while hiding in the shadows. Great graphics too.

Beta day today! August 5, 2009

But I can’t play since its only from 8am to 2pm. Ugh whats the point then?

I did get the beta code for Fallen Earth, however from the trailer and the screenshots, it looks like the developers got lazy on making it.

Final Fantasy XIV came out with some news today.
The character races – same as FFXI (I saw that coming)
The character jobs – major classes and sub classes (Crafter is a class??)
The level advancement – no experience levels (heh I can’t wait to hear more about this LOL , I got a weird feeling that grinding is still necessary)

Perks and other stuff about Champions Online… July 28, 2009

Perks from TenTonHammer
I guess the best way to describe these are ‘titles’ or ‘achievement labels’.

Stuff you need to know
Interesting stuff:
There’s gear you can attach to your character that can be quested or found. “weee nuclear-powered socks!”

There’s blocking. “Talk to the hand sister…”

Use your surroundings. “Throw a garbage can or public transportation”

You have a Nemesis. To be quested of course. “Those 3am drunk calls were made by my arch nemesis…”

You can combine any powers you want. No classes. “Looking for…. errr dude… Must be able to block lazers and stuff.. Must know how to swim or create force-bubbles with breathable atmosphere! Non-smoker preferred!”

I miss my COH characters… July 16, 2009

Zao = Fire & Earth Tanker
Eizenzhan = Strength & Invulnerability Tanker
Fun times… The easiest character to use was Eizenzhan , Zao was difficult and challenging. You can siphon health from the enemies though which is usable every 1 minute I think. Of course most battles last 30 secs so you better keep your enemies off their feet by doing a smash.

Champions Online PVP… July 14, 2009

It’s Arena Style PVP , instanced naturally. A little disappointing but I guess there is no story line where you gain ground from superheroes beating each other up. Graphics look sweet though.

COH and CO… July 10, 2009

I’ve played City of Heroes before when it began and kind of gave up after a year. The reason? It was getting monotonous. The common recurring theme is :
1. Get quest
2. Find quest location
3. Beat up everything in your path to fulfill the quest.
4. Go back to quest giver and get rewarded.
5. That’s it, you can group up if you want by waiting in front of the building since most of them occur in their own scenario. There can be multiple scenarios in one location.
