World of Warcraft: Legion hype is real!

So to those of you who somehow may not already know, Legion, WoW’s upcoming expansion is getting a lot hype! there are multiple reason why this is, but this post will only cover a few such as:

  1. The Warcraft movie is now only 4 days away from it’s release! Now only will the movie introduce World of Warcraft to a plethora of people who know nothing about it, it is also going to evoke feelings from the games overall player-base. This of course include old, current and new players. So whether someone hasn’t played in a few years or is a active subscriber, people who watch the movie, are going to be very inclined to play the game.
  2. Blizzard really knows how to capture a audience, because along with the movies’s release they are also going to be giving out free game time to everyone who buys a ticket!
  3. Twitch is helping with the hype by having WoW make twitch history by coming out with custom badges on the twitch platform! Now, while these badges are only temporary this is a huge publicity step for Blizzard. Before these WoW badges came out, the only other badges anyone could have were for twitch turbo and if you were a mod or up for the streaming site.

Here is the most promotion trailer for Warcraft showcasing the free game time that comes with buying a ticket:

Overwatch is coming very soon!

The high anticipated FPS Action Shooter has won many hearts over its open beat weekend that wont end till tomorrow! If you haven’t tried the game yet, I would highly recommend giving it a shot. A person can easily see the quality and resources put into the game and its story and why wouldn’t they? It was made by one of the top USA gaming companies known as Blizzard.

Here are some of the extremely well done trailers for Overwatch:

The Division and its future

So. Many people would agree with me when I say the Division is a dying game. The reason being that the number of players abusing glitches and hacks overwhelms the number of genuine players.

The main issue with this is the end game content in The Division is strongly focused and built around aspects of pvp, pvp where people can empty there clip into you in under 1 second using a RPM (rounds per minute) hack. The other reason being that people can exploit a glitch to complete an almost impossible end game mission to get the best gear that is then used as a unfair advantage.

I have found two post regarding these issues and rather then copy past I would like to just post a link:

Aeria Games to publish Bless in EU & NA!!!

BLESS Online is coming to North America and Europe and will be published by Aeria Games. Aeria Games just signed publishing rights for the Korean MMORPG Bless Online. It looks like the game is going to be making its way to both North America and Europe. The original article written by Inven News, does not state on any specific release dates so just keep your fingers cross and hope for a fast and good quality localization. Below, you will find some very cool videos showcasing the Triple-A MMORPG!

Runescape – The Heart of Gielinor!

The heart of Gielinor (Also known as the Heart or God Wars Dungeon 2 (GWD2)) will be the second God Wars Dungeon in Runescape located in the Kharidian Dessert, North of the Agility Pyramid and West of Nardah.

Although the update its self isn’t due until the 29th of March at the earliest, there is already content out for The Heart of Gielinor. A community event named “The Heart of Gielinor: Encampment was released on the 17th of March, uncovering the entrance to the dungeon.

Like the first God wars Dungeon. 4 Gods will be featured, where the player is able to kill followers of any of the four gods to gain there kill count to the fight the generals.
The gods include Seren, Zaros, Zammorak and Sliske, each with their own general and section in the dungeon. The new generals will feature on the God Scoreboard ingame.

The new dungeon will be a solo orientated experience and will not include complicated mechanics nor will it really require PvM experience.

Like before the player will be required to fight minions to earn kill count witch will then unlock the door to the boss room once the player has killed 40 faction minions. Each boss will drop some sort of god item such as the first GWD bosses that drop god sword hilts and god sword blade shards.

The boss is intended to be that of Nex or similar although without the complexity behind the Mechanics behind her. It is also expected that killing the generals will take far less time than killing Nex, thus manipulating and lowering the drop rate to compensate.

Unlike the original generals in the first GWD the generals in The Heart of Gielinor will not be accompanied by Lieutenants. All though for the Zammorak and Zaros general encounters there is two bosses/generals

Smite comes out with God of Thunder: Raijin!

 

Raijin is a ranged Mage and boy is he fun! Not only is he very mobile because of his 3rd Ability – Thunder Crash, but the utility of the skill mixed with the rest of his kit makes him very deadly!

Lore:

Thunder is a terrifying element, trembling the very earth with its sound. Herald to storms, accomplice to lightning, thunder is primal, powerful and chaotic. Let this speak, then, of its master, the demon faced God, Raijin, who summons this force with the pounding of his great drums.

Ever in conflict with his equally fearsome brother, Fujin, Master of Wind, Raijin vies for control of the skies above the Realm of the Rising Sun. For mortals, their battles form dramatic storms and devastating tidal waves, but for the brothers, this is just friendly competition; an ongoing tournament to determine the strongest.

Though monstrous in appearance and intimidating in battle, Raijin is generous to his Faithful, clearing the detritus with lightning to leave rice fields all the more fertile. That doesn’t stop parents from warning their children to hide when a storm comes, lest Raijin devour their bellies. Raijin no doubt finds this tale amusing but has yet to actually feast on any toddlers.

War has reached the distant shores of Raijin’s island realm, and for the first time, he has encountered other Gods that claim dominion over lightning, thunder, and the sky itself. Relishing this opportunity to prove dominance, Raijin enters the fray, drums pounding, and his boisterous laugh indistinguishable from rolling thunder.

Toolkit:

Passive – Static Crescendo

– Raijin’s drums gather static charges as he fires Basic Attacks and Abilities. When all four drums are charged, his next Ability does additional damage.

1st Ability – Percussive Storm

– Raijin pounds his drums sending forth a peal of thunder in a line, then another, then two at once, each growing wider as it travels. The thunder deals Magical Damage to Enemies it hits, and stops on the first Enemy God in its path.

2nd Ability – Raiju

– Raijin marks a target enemy by dismissing his ally Riaju, who hides in the enemy’s navel. While asleep, Raiju reveals the target to Raijin’s team on the minimap. The next time Raijin damages the target, Raiju awakens and claws his way out, damaging the target and 5 nearby enemies in his attempt to flee.

Dismissing Raiju grants Raijin a single Charge.

3rd Ability – Thunder Crash

– Raijin sends a bolt of lightning crashing down at his ground target location damaging and mesmerizing enemies, while Raijin himself ascends into the sky. Shortly thereafter he crashing down at that location, doing a second burst of damage to all Enemies in the area.

Raijin gains one Charge when he sends the bolt of lightning, and another when he arrives in a crash of thunder.

Ultimate – Taiko Drums

– Raijin flies above the battlefield, beating his drum 4 times to summon peals of thunder. With each hit, he has a choice of three beats:
Beat one: 100% damage.
Beat two: Taunt and 50% Damage.
Beat three: Fear and 50% Damage.

Raijin receives one Charge each time he strikes a drum, for a maximum of four Charges.

 

How to survive in The Division!

                                                                      The Division Guide

How to make money:

The Division has two major currencies. Dark Zone Credits are earned and used in and around the Dark Zone, so you’ll be focusing on that in endgame. For the bulk of your campaign experience, it’s bog-standard Credits you need to worry about.

Credits are earned in a variety of ways as you play, and you’ll want a lot of them – even the vendors who hang out in your Base of Operations will occasionally have something tasty on show.

So how do you make your wallet fatter? Here are our preferred methods:

  • Complete side-activities

When servers go live you can just bet most players will be rushing through the story missions, aiming to hit that end-game level cap and start rushing the Dark Zone. But as well as being a shared worlds RPG and tactical cover shooter, The Division is an Ubisoft game in the tradition of Assassin’s Creed, Watch Dogs and Far Cry, and you know what that means.

On the off chance you somehow don’t, what it means is this: the map will offer you a bunch of activities that aren’t related to the critical story path. These activities will reward you with XP, loot and money, better equipping you for the main missions, so why wouldn’t you do them?

For best results, regularly check maps and notice boards at hubs for details of new activities and events. You’ll quickly learn which kinds of activities you enjoy and find the most lucrative.

  • Fill ya boots, sell ya loot

This might seem obvious, but offloading your old gear at vendors is one way to obtain currency. The “mark as junk” feature makes this very easy to do in bulk.

Be smart about this: when you’re heading out into the game world, empty out your backpack as much as possible. (If you’re only going to do some low-level stuff you know you can steamroll, leave behind your back-up gear and stick to one build.) This will ensure you have plenty of room for loot. Don’t walk away leaving trash loot on the street when you could convert it into dollars! Every bit counts.

Although you might not be levelling at as spanking a pace as in the betas, you’ll still find yourself outgrowing your old gear on the reg. Think about what to keep, and what to chuck in your stash for later. You don’t need half a dozen identical rifles with slightly different stats, but it might be worthwhile holding onto a slightly out-of-date shotgun if you don’t have a close-quarters alternative.

  • Don’t spend money unnecessarily

Unless you’ve got a really obvious gap in your build – one piece of armour drastically under-levelled, for example – there’s no need to buy gear while you’re levelling up. On your way to the cap you’ll find equipment turnover is rapid even when you’re purely reliant on drops. Don’t waste your ready now when that little whack of cash might be all you need to buy an end-game gun in a few days’ time.

That said, make sure you’re not being too cheap. Keep an eye one how much cash you’re earning during missions and activities, and if it stacks up well against the cost of some tasty item you’ll only use for a few levels, go for it. It’s just a time investment, after all.

  • Dark Zone runs

You knew it was coming. The Dark Zone is where all the best loot in the game is, and even the worst drops here will net you decent payments when you clear them out of your inventory at the nearest vendor.

Look for unique named NPCs and drop them for a very high chance of valuable gear, or go rogue, if you must. Try to fill up your stash before extracting, then cash in all your contaminated gear back at your Base of Operations.

The vendors in your base will bleed credits in exchange for this tasty stuff, even if it seems like rubbish in comparison to your equipped sets. Really good drops, of course, should be kept and equipped; we’re only human.

The Guns of The Division

So in The Division Beta we got a feel for a small portion of guns in the game and how they will be usefull in the main game. The fact that you are able to carry a main weapon, a secondary weapon and a sidearm all at the same time says that it will be all about the rolls and caitering to all play styles with a number of Shotguns, SMG’s, Assault Rifles, Marksman Rifles, LMG’s and Pistol’s for your sidearm.
