Blog #37 I'd Hate To Rain, On Your Parade

Last post, i was talking to you all about the mmorpgs i am currently playing, but i want to focus on some rants that i have came across in progressing in my gaming adventures. Recently, i've been playing less, mostly because of life issues. I was encountered with a question, can a mmorpg sometimes only be a social experiment, or better way to put it... A social gathering? Think about it, can it be used like that? I think it can be. I mean, we have events in-game, and community things, that brings us together, and makes us stop the usual. I told him, it could be used like that, but why would it be? When we install, a mmorpg, we expect is to have that usual feeling, you know the feeling i'm talking about. I mean yes, we want interaction, i'm a big believer in a good community, a friendly one. I couldn't solo a whole game, i think i would go mad, by myself. I would bore myself to death, and i think that is the case for a lot of people. Soloing a whole game, would just make me crazy. Some people can, and props too you, but i need some sort of social interaction. Honestly, i wish every game had that certain community feel to it, if a game has world chat, you could ask a question, and not get flamed, or get that response... "Stfu noob, google it". My god, i hate that response so much, it's just a waste of time, and i don't really understand how that person could feel good about himself, he just wasted my time, and his, and it's probably worse for him, cause i have all the time in the world. Mmorpgs are like life though. We have those... "Good days", and those horrible days. We have break ups, we gave memorys, we have those things that we carry on in life too. "Breakups don't exist in mmorpgs n00b". I was in a very popular guild in one my old mmorpgs Knight Online, it was a sad day, when we parted ways, and we disbanded the guild. We were left with that empty feeling. Most of went too different games, i mean... Yeah, some of still played together, but it's defiantly not the same feeling as being in a guild, with over one hundered people, and having that bond of brothers. Honestly, believe it or not, but it does happen a lot. Mmorpgs are never truly paradise. It's not just one line of greatness, there are many bumps and bruises that we get from these games. I've talked about this before, some games aren't meant for the light hearted, and weaked skinned. It's true. I talked about my good friend who committed suicide, due to cyber bullying, (May he rest in peace). This isn't what it's about, but it's a small part of it. When we enter that new game, we have no idea what to expect, but we do think about it. What will happen, what could happen, and what am i getting into myself into. The first question i ask myself, before even installing, i know that sometimes harsh, but i ask myself "Could i see myself getting addicted, or this being my type of game" (Sounds like, could she be my type of girls), well... Install/Ask and find out right? Yeah, yeah... I'm treating a new mmorpg, like a new date... Eh, i feel like it's like that sometimes... I'm always paying though, which makes me have a sad panda face. Haha.

Addiction is a big part for me... Oh god, that sounds really bad, but like i've stated, i want to have a good, long experience. I want that game to be like... My dream to come true, or even half a dream. I don't want to be bored, i don't want to be flamed. I honestly, want a good experience. I pay the price, i don't want crap to fill up my computer screen, and have to apologize to my hard-drive for installing a peice of crap. (Not saying i've done that, but i've come close). Ever install that game, where you get into it, and you look at your screen, and your like "Oh, wtf". Yup, i'm that guy with every mmorpg. I'm just like... Ah, wtf man, i wanted more. Damn advertisement department. "We have the best game-play on the market". Ohhh, point and click, and spamming 1-2-3-4. Amazing system you got there, man where have i seen that before? Oh, yeah... Maybe every game? 1 Josh, 0 game. I obviously win. Sick of dumb advertisements. I know they want players, but i would have the honest truth, but some fake crap that makes me go "OH yeah, sweet", but when i get in the game it's like "WTF BITCH". Then i wanted to make some rage post on the forums, on how i was cheated on half of my time, while in the game, and start some pointless rage quit, that wastes my time. Yeah, thats me. It annoys the crap out of me, wheres the innovation? Where's the guts, the glory, and the difference. I'm actually sick of seeing the same crap smeared unto my screen. "OMG, it's a naked half elf chick in full plate" "Omg, your a perv" Noticed that? All chicks that wear "plate" mail, are half naked, honestly, if i was that chick i would be like.... "Dude, you expect this too protect me, my boobs are like 90% showing, asshole". You know i am right, but we enjoy it, when we use the jump command, and her chest goes up and down, yeah... We've all done that. My girl hates me for it, but it's just for kicks and giggles.... Right? (Nope). You know, one of these days i want to see a penguin as playable race. Yeah, human's are nice, we're so bland. Omg, it's orcs... World of warcraft much? Omg it's elfs... Boring, those five hundred games have done that? Robots? Yeah... A little over-done sometimes, and they feel like it's not really robotics, its just... Sci-fi that went horribly wrong in the sketch room. Yeah... C'mon we want penguins, or at least i do. Maybe even a dolphin here or there, but land fighting, dolphin loses, so... We can't have that.

Honestly, i just want something that is like... "Whoa, did i see that correctly, YEAH someone's finally done that". Recently, i've seen Aglagon(Spelling?). Go free-to-play, and yes... I did some trash talking. This is really off subject, but Derek Smart, is a real ass-hole. I find that man, really irritating, and just retarted. (Down syndrom maybe?). Hey, i might get some flame, but he starts things, he can't finish. Carry on. I said, when i heard it went too free to play, and i never heard of it before. I was like, hey... What is this? I looked at the website, maybe something different, but no... It's a clone, of a clone, of a clone, etc etc. What is the world coming too? Honestly, we're just fed up. I see on other websites, in a Looking for game section... Most of the games they want are a free world of warcraft, yeah thats all good and stuff, but... Why? I mean, yes world of warcraft has done great, but i know some people can't pay, but... Look for some difference. If i want WoW, i'll pay for it. Most free-to-play games have turned to wow, because if that can work, it can work for me. Right? Right. I want a company to grow a pair, and make something we have never seen before. If it fails, let it be, but if it works, it will be a trend setter. "Omg, they did something different and it works. My turn" Meh, when that happens, either hell will freeze over, or my girl will leave me. I don't think those two will happen. So, i'll be on dota clones, waiting for something too hit the market that will wow me, until then... Off too heroes of newerth. /EndRant

-Cheers!

Blog #36 Swords, Dragons, And Diet Coke

As I said in my last post, my new mmorpg adventure is now in Runes Of Magic. I'm going to go off my rants, and problems, and actually focus on gaming for once, which is going to be awesome. I haven't done that in awhile, and i think it's a step forward for me, and my blog. For those of you who do not know, Runes Of Magic, is a free-to-play mmorpg. Many people say it is a WoW clone, i say it is, and it isn't. It is a great mmorpg, that offers some unique things to the mmorpg. I think one of the most notable features of the game, is the Dual-Class system. For example, i am playing a Rogue/Scout. (My main class is a Rogue, and my secondary class is a scout). I know this sounds more of a review, but i'm just giving off a few beginner things about the game. My current view on the game is very pleasant, i'm in a guild, and i'm having a blast. The one thing i am enjoying about this game, is that the grind does not affect me as much as other games do. I can play this game for hours, and hours on end, and have a blast. (Well, i can mostly blame that on my guild's vent, after midnight, things get wack, sad eh?). I've stated in previous blogs, that guilds can make or break a game, and in my case it made it for me. So, i'm happy in that case. Am i completely happy with this game, most of the way i am. It is gaining on me, and i'm finally playing a mmorpg. In my previous blogs, i've stated that i didnt, and have played DoTa clones. I haven't played anything else for awhile. It's interesting. Most of my blog posts are about failure, and false hope, and here i am now, playing a free-to-play mmorpg. I got asked, why a free game? No, it's not about money issues or anything else, i could have chosen a pay to play game, but i didnt feel there was any for me out there. I wasn't going back to WoW, and most of my old pay to play games, are, or going to be free, so i was stuck in a decision. My woman introduced me to Runes of Magic, and i'm hooked. So, what else can i say about it? I'm having fun, i found a good guild, and i'm having fun trying the interesting features in the game. Will i do a review of the game like i did LoL? For sure, i feel once i get more into the game, and i know more about it, i will defiantly review the game. I'm defiantly looking forward too it. If you do play RoM, and you are on the Reni server, feel free to add me, my in-game name is Perception. I love meeting new people, and playing with my readers or just mmorpg.com folks. I'm open to anything. (Sounds dirty doesn't it?)

As for the blog name, it's a Devil wears prada song name, and ironically, i found that i was wielding a sword, killing a dragon, and drinking diet coke. So, isn't that cool? Yes, i am huge Devil Wears Prada fan, The band, not the movie. Though, my wife does love the movie. Anyways, back on the subject. I am having a blast on the game. I haven't touched League Of Legends in awhile, or Heroes Of Newerth. My guild has kept me in the game for hours on end. Yeah, the game does have it downsides, the biggest one for me, is the jerks. Of course, it is a free game, and every game has it's jerks, but i can't stand the, jerks in any game, so it's not just this game. Now, i'm not saying there is a lot. I've met about two. So, i'm not cramping the game's style or anything. It's a great game, i found the server i am on, has a wonderful community. I'm enjoying my experience, and i don't think it's going downhill anytime soon. Which i am very grateful about. After all my mmorpgs, after all my rage quits, i found some happiness. I hope it does last, because i'm having a blast. Haha, but seriously, if you play the game, and wanna chat it up with me, go for it, i will never ignore a fan/reader/mmorpg.com user. Exciting isn't it? (I sound just like my nerd friend, but i'm a nerd... I'm confusing myself /facepalm).

I've been asked about League of Legends, and why i quit. There are many reasons why i unistalled that game. I felt like my place in that game was done. I was winning, and losing i wasn't having the fun i was having when i first joined. I felt that the game's punch that i used to love, what never there anymore. I found myself bored, and just miserable. I played every champ, i knew every counter. I just wasn't in the LoL mood anymore. I told my friends, and team goodbye, and gave up. Unistalled. I have nothing against the game, it will always have place in my heart, i had fun, but it didnt last. So, that would be the end of that era of my gaming experience. Sorry to all the people who added me. Maybe i will come back soon, but i don't think so with RoM creeping up my sleeve. (Doesn't make sense, but whatever). Most of my blogs from now on, will be about my RoM experiences, and hopefully some rants about the current industry! Cheers!

Blog #35 Masses Of A Dying Breed(In Recognition)

It's been a very long since i posted, so i thought i'd take a break from my mmorpg, and actually write. (If you caught that, i said mmorpg). Yes, in fact i am playing an mmorpg currently, and i am having a blast with it. I will release details on that later. Before i started playing again, i felt like my scene of mmorpg is dead, or dying. Why? I feel like we are going down a hole, we can't get back up. I feel like, we need more of a sense of danger when it comes to playing mmo's. I want to feel like... I'm going into a brand new scene, but i can't. I gave up my hopes for that, because i realized, If it makes money, it will be released. I can't blame them, but hell... I may as well go with the flow right? I feel like i'm trying too hard to believe in something i can't see. If your saying, that all my post about beliefs are just crap now, your probably right. It's like life, if you believe in love, but you can't feel it, you give up, instead i put in the back of my head, until i see undeniable proof. "All love, can be traced to a maker". We make the game into what we want it too be. Casual, hardcore, PvP, PvE, we carve it into what we want it to be shaped into. It is a simple as that kiddos. I drove myself mad trying to find my fit into games, and i just felt crap, i love mmorpgs. I hated not playing them. So, how do i feel now? I'm mad at myself, but i feel like if i suck it up, and play a game, that i can see myself enjoying later on, i will be happy. It's difficult for me to enjoy anything. In gaming, i am very picky, in music i'm very picky, my lifestyle is a picky one. (My woman hates it). It's really funny, my girl got me back into mmorpgs, and she's not picky at all, when it comes to gaming, we are on a totally different page, she convinced to me try a new one, that i've heard of many times, and heard good and bad things about, but she's like... "I enjoy it, i play it constantly, just give it a shot". I did, and i have enjoyed it a lot since installing it. It's almost my salvation, we play together a lot, and i feel it's a decent game. I will give you a hint, it is a free to play game. (Oh god, not those). I could have went into a pay to play game, but i feel like this makes me happy. So, why would i wanna stop that happiness? Alright, so, i feel like i should release the game i am playing. I am currently playing: Runes Of Magic. People say it is a WoW clone, and it does have a very close resemblance to it, but i am enjoying it. If you play it, or you want to play it, We play on the Artemis server, and the Reni server. (Both PvE Servers). I will probably write a review about it, and defiantly blog about it, for sure. So, i am enjoying it's features, the people i have met, and the quests i have enjoyed so far.

What about League Of Legends, and Heroes Of Newerth? Sadly, i have quit League Of Legends. I am no longer online for that game. I am currently playing HoN a lot though. I am enjoying it, very much so. Why did i quit LoL? I got a lot of wins, Season one came out, and i found that the game went down the hole, and i really didn't enjoy myself, my friends do miss me, my teams want me back. I don't feel myself going back any time soon, sorry for anyone who added me, but you can find me in HoN, and it is currently free till August ninth. So, that is sort of my life right now, and what i am up too, what i am playing. So, if your playing Heroes Of Newerth, or Runes Of Magic, leave a comment, pm me, whatever you wanna do. Tell me what you play, if you wanna play with me. I'm always wanting to meet new people, and game with some new, and old friends. I will even come into your server, and game it up with you.

More blogs to come. Cheers!
