In this block we takes two stops in SoE town, one in a broken but kind of amazing title, followed by a polished but far less well-aged one, and then whatever the hell Requiem was thinking. Read the rest of this entry
The block brings us back down to three episodes, only two of which I still make mention of, and only one of which I still play with any sense of regularity. Fun times go!
Looks like it’s time for another special episode that would now technically qualify for a regular episode, another game by the same publisher, and a game that Grindstone has a heavy presence in… while I do not. Weird coincidences are weird.
Today brings us to a very special block. Despite starting with something that’s not entirely related or connected to the show, we’ll be going over the game that spawned Grindstone in the first place, bringing MMO Grinder from “Me vs. the MMO I’m playing” to a community project that’s been written by committee ever since. Kinda. It took a while to get there, but this was definitely the catalyst. Also there’s a third game that was a horrific disappointment. Let’s rock.
I have some words to say. Some traps to lay. This is the block that contains TERA, SMITE and… well Age of Conan but who cares about that game anymore? Those of you who kept asking “Why did you say that about SMITE in your Heroes of the Storm Sidequest?” You’re about to find out.
Alone we walk the path of “meh”. Our minds too weary to get excited over anything anymore. This block carrying me over from 2012 to 2013 held little that I was overtly fond of, but each was a vastly different title with their own merits. Time to jog my memory.
Today we’ll be going over another three games, one that surprised me in a big way, one that didn’t surprise me in the slightest and one that was a game that I played. I have come to realize just how “meh” I am on a lot of these titles. Sometimes the illusionary objectivity is just my inability to care!
This is the block to throw off my counter, since despite Special Episodes not being part of my normal episode counter, they are still episodes, and will be included in the list when I reach them chronologically. I can’t believe I actually did two of those in a row. Oh, I get to shit on Guild Wars 2 now? This is going to turn out great.
In this next block, I cave into the only MMO version of Monster Hunter we’ll ever seem to get, I revisit another game I played a while before I started the show, and I look into the final superhero game that was available… at the time.
Today we will be visiting a game that was suggested to me constantly, until I game way with a PC barely able to run it, and two revisits that had shockingly different results. Let’s see what’s in store and what I can remember…
