Off-Week Update (for Ep. 14)
So yeah… you probably noticed that I’m now about a week off schedule… It does help me a bit better with my scheduled deadlines on TGWTG, allowing me an entire other week to finish the appropriate episode before having to post it on the main site. I’m still shooting for Wednesday releases like usual, but at least a BIT of the pressure is off.
Not like anyone reading this really watches me solely through BT, or TGWTG, though.
So, those who follow ME and not the show on Twitter will already know what my next game is. Lineage 2. Yes, it’s had a bit of a learning curve, but I was able to get much more into it yesterday… but MAN do people love to troll in this game. See, when people troll in things like WoW, they can… pretty much only jump around your character, use the /yell channel and say stupid shit… all of which are easily ignored and avoided. They have no real impact on gameplay. The WORST people can do is be the opposing faction, and kill your quest givers… and even that doesn’t last forever. Even WoW’s PvP servers are pretty lax, giving each race safe zones. So if you try and tell me that your reception in WoW was less than warm, and that’s why the game “sucks” STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM LINEAGE 2.
The sheer amount of ways players can make your life a living hell is beyond ridiculous. See, the PvP system in this game is a full on “PK” or Player-Killer system. This means that ANYONE can attack you at nearly ANY time pretty much for the lulz. You can be barely level 10 heading out for your first quest, and be immediately one-shot by a bored level 40+. If they aren’t using the PK system to fuck you, there’s also the practice of “training” monsters, where a higher level character will gather up enemies in the game, and run around a map being followed by a massive cloud of monsters, until they find low level players out questing, and run the cloud through them, oftentimes dropping several of the monsters in the group to attacking the low level players, essentially killing them.
Sure, I’ll get into these into more detail when I do the actual review, but be warned this is one of the most noob unfriendly games out there. Be extremely wary of this if you want to come find me… unless you just want to PK me. Jerks.
In any case, Doctor Who: Worlds in Time goes up on TGWTG tomorrow. Here’s to hoping it’s better received then half the crossovers I did.
