I simply love Carbot animations - even if he's always been more about Starcraft and HotS, he did a number of spot-on videos about WoW (and Diablo). As he usually hits the nail on the head, I would disagree with the latest video nevertheless. Approach with care, cause it's a tear jerker: https://www.youtube.com/embed/S5Hzh43k330 I do … Continue reading Carbot’s Farewell to WoW Video: What’s Wrong With It?
The thing bugging me most in FFXIV is probably "the world" itself. I see the very same scheme as in Blade & Soul: yes, you're kinda free to go everywhere you want - as long as your level allows it not to get killed by high level mobs. And no, you actually can not. Let's … Continue reading FFXIV: You Think You’re in an Open World, But You’re Not
Finally, our wait is over! Shadowlands patch 9.1. will be released on June 29/30 depending on the region - that is, less than two weeks from now. The release date is nowhere unexpected. Most predicted as far as in March/April already that it'll be late June/early July (me included), it's about a month between TBCC … Continue reading Shadowlands 9.1. Chains of Domination: Release Date Announced!
Alright, the gaming news and blogs are overwhelming me with FFXIV, so I decided to gave it another roll. It's my third time trying this game in the course of 5 years, and now I moved farther than previous tries, so there's some ground for impressions. On my first experience several years ago I created … Continue reading Trying Final Fantasy XIV: Newbie Experience Round 3
While we're still waiting for WoW's 9.1. content - at least give us the release date, come on! - I'm traveling through the historical periods provided by Assassin's Creed games. My next stop is AC: Valhalla, the third and final game in the after-reboot era so far, and the final one I'll be playing in … Continue reading My Assassin’s Creed Journey Continues: Valhalla Review & Odyssey Totally Done
Well, it means we all from different regions can be Battlenet friends now all over the world starting June 8 :) Even if I'm lost at Assassin's Creed now, very soon WoW and patch 9.1. will be my home again, hopefully becoming the game again where I spend all my spare time. My BattleTag is … Continue reading Global Battlenet is Up!
There's a well known "baby duck syndrome" thing concerning media series (comics, books, movies, games etc). The legend is: a duckling would recognize the first object or creature he sees after birth as his mother, also known as imprinting. Likewise, gamers, readers and movie fans would most likely recognize the first book, comic, movie or … Continue reading Assassin’s Creed Origins: Game Review & A Baby Duck Syndrome
The WoW-related internets are buzzing about the latest short story from Folk and Fairy Tales of Azeroth, which is exploring visions of Vereesa about Sylvanas: the shattered soul and stuff like that. This post would be quite short, as my opinion is quite certain. Blizzard are trying to sneak in some redemption theme, and doing … Continue reading Sylvanas Redemption: A Last Minute Call
Assassin's Creed series is coping with my WoW lull time particularly well. I've completed the main Odyssey game (without a couple of "expansion" aka DLC stories), and I'd say it's one of the best things I've come across concerning single player titles. Even without DLC, it took massive 105 hours to swipe it clean (130 … Continue reading A Bit of WoW and a Lot of Assassin’s Creed
Today's my birthday, I dinged 38 (which is already not over 35, but under 40), and I got probably one of the most precious presents - from Sire Denathrius: That's right - my dance macabre in Nathria raid is over! Zenith spherule was traded for a venthyr fist weapon, a cool one btw, skulls and … Continue reading 9.0. Officially Done! What’s Next?
