Aion Blues

Posted in Video Games with tags on September 23, 2009 by theerivs

Alot of my old guildies and some bloggers are playing Aion. Hearing them talk about their fun is getting to me. I am going on Vacation. Then I will decide what I’m going to do.

I am trying to resist, because I do love WAR so much. Can’t play a PvP game with no people though.


The Aion Exodus

Looks like WAR is taking a hit pretty hard from AION, at least it seems that way on the boards. I’ll have to see it pan out but already my own guild leader quit to go onto other pastures, not better.

Time will tell how this will play itself out in WAR, I’m thinking another server merger is going to happen.

Lets get it on!!!

Well today Wrath of the Lich King comes out, and even though I will be getting it. I will not leave WAR. I said this before so I won’t rehash my thoughts.

What I am worried about, WAR is an PvP/RvR game, to do that you need people to fight. Without people to fight, what fun is it?

I’ll tell you something I had the most fun in DAOC when it wasn’t zerg fests, just a core group of people out in the frontiers working on taking objectives, and having some fun. Sometimes you died, sometimes you won, but it was more fun, controllable.

Right now in T3 at least it’s all about who can zerg better. I don’t really like that too much.

Is WAR so bad that it drove me back to WoW. No. I spend 4 years of my life in WoW, another chapter has come out. I have to see it to the end I believe. See how it plays out.

Like I said I’ll be sticking with WAR, but I’m worried that it might be a ghost town for awhile.

WoW versus WAR

Posted in Video Games with tags , , , on October 28, 2008 by theerivs

This thought just popped in my mind. I was in this war of video games before. It was an Arcade in the late 80’s. Side by side were two games.

Super Street Fighter 2- which is like WoW. Cartoony, yet fun to play. I loved it when I did a “Haiyouken”

Next to that was Mortal Kombat- which to me reminds me of WAR. More realistic, more brutal and more to the point. You just get into this killing mode when you hear Scorpion go ” GET OVER HERE!”

Both games were very satisfying, and fun to play. I loved to play both games too, but it usally depended on who’s playing with me. Paying 30 bucks is way cheaper then all the quarters i dumped in those two games combined.

I would also like to send out a big Hola to my spanish readers at Warhammer Latino.  Gracias for reading my blog.

Congo Rats to Me.

Woot! Ding! etc.etc. I made Rank 25. 24 seemed to take forever. One good thing is I had some nice scenarios last night. Some resounding wins, and some bitter defeats. I was glad a couple other scenarios opened up, beside Tor Anroc. Though I’m in probably the vast minority that actually likes that scenario. It seems like I was getting more xp in scenarios though in general. I don’t know if this is true or not, but I won’t complain. I would like to have seen more Open RvR last night since Order seemed to own everything in T3. It seems like Destro all moved on to T4.

In the land of WoW, the zombie event is over I liked it for the most part. I can see though how it could get aggravating reeeeaaalll quick. Tonight I hit Kara, with full blown frost spec, which is my spec of choice. I can’t wait to see how it performs.

Back to the Future

So I was really busy this weekend didn’t get to play WAR too much. Last night I got a bug up my tookus, I had to check out Thee zombie event of WoW. So I dusted off the WoW account. Loaded the ungodly patch. Loaded it up. I checked it out. At 70 pretty cool, but if I was trying to grind up a toon for the expansion..not so cool. It was different, and when dealing with WoW anything different is cool. So I sat there checked out the glyph stuff, which was cool. I also liked the fact mounts, and pets don’t take up bag space anymore.  There’s alot of things I still like about WoW. It does do PvE right. Which I enjoy…on occasion. It was really nice to chat with some old friends.

Will I get WoTLK, and get my my toon to 80 in WoW, yes. I never said I hated WoW. I just grew tired of alot of the things offered.

Will I delete my WAR account. Never. I love this game. Can’t beat RvR.

So I must be one of those people that Mark Jacobs talks about duel wielding MMO’s
