Part 2 Happy Valentine's Day! I've now been playing on the FFXIV Japanese server (Ramuh) in an all Japanese guild for around the past 7 months and haven't gone back to my original English server (Leviathan) very often. I'm now decently capable of basic...

Part 1 I've now been playing on the Japanese server (Ramuh) in an all Japanese guild for the past 6 months, so I believe I can say a few things at this point about what the differences are between that server and my previous NA server Leviathan. I ini...

Destiny - the MMO/FPS Hybrid

Apr 29 2014 06:45 AM | Nobody in Articles

As most of you know, I've been disappointed with the PvP lineup in the mmo game scene. The NA companies don't seem to understand the open world PvP crowd at all and Asian companies either don't bring their games to the states in a timely manner (BNS),...

Thoughts on Everquest Next Landmark Alpha Phase I

Feb 17 2014 04:31 PM | Nobody in Articles

I figured I'd get far enough in eqNext Landmark to have mined, built, smoothed, lined, and built some more. This is alpha phase I and it really shows. Things seem to break on a daily basis, but then they get patched before they can break some more. Usually when a game claims it's letting people into alpha they're talking about a late beta build. This game is really in an alpha stage and there's a whole roadmap of how they're going to get to feature completeness. For those looking to potentially get in on the action, I thought I'd post my current thoughts on the game called EQNL. Note that the game right now is mostly for those folks out there that love to see a new game grow and gain new features. Phase 2 looks like it'll be where people obtain a more complete experience and so folks may want to jump on board at that time.
