Wildstar – Now It’s F2P

image

So I’m not exactly a MMO fan, I had WoW for 3 months but the subscription seemed ludicrous, I only played once a week. I soon tried Wild Star during Alpha and Beta and a little on and after release but again for the amount I played paying a subscription wasn’t on the cards. I did the big mistake on buying an Archage founder pack and that’s ¬£100+ I will never see again. If you tried Wild Star and thought it’s launch was poor the Archage one was three times worse and to this day I still haven’t wanted to return.

Anyway this week Wild Star goes free to play, you can still pay a sub and get added extras but the game is totally free. Everything will be working around cosmic points system but C. R. E. D. D is still there for those who still want to use it. Microtransactions will be the same as most MMO’s mounts and costumes.

I’ll probably redownload and see if it’s still enjoyable over the next month.

Ghost In The Shell: First Strike [Game]

So while on one of my daily Twitter checks I came across the first advert I was actually interested in. I’m a fan of anime/manga and have a few DVD’s and Bluray’s, surprisingly enough I have a few Ghost In The Shell and this is why the advert drew me in. It was a simple advert with little information but it still got my attention.

Now looking at the video it looks graphically stunning and will be free to play, I have played a game that at looks similar called Neo Tokyo which is a standalone mod but based around half life so not the best looking of games.

Just waiting for the beta to Start.

CSGO – VACation

image

Well last night I was bored of playing Casual and getting nowhere so decided to jump on competitive. I had already been playing like a silver 1 on Casual so chance was I wasn’t going to do great on competitive.

During the warmup I just trolled around with¬† pistols or shotguns only for a laugh, all of a sudden three kills in a row all Headshots. One I could just see a guy through a gap, then that fateful message appeared *reported*. I thought it was someone else so asked who to which a reply of nice wall hacks and I bet you have aim bot. This is the third time I have managed to be called a hacker, it feels good knowing someone thinks you’re hacking when you’re not, you feel like you have skills (I dont).

Not sure if he did report me but we had an OK match ended in a tie, I was top scorer and did have a few lucky shots I’ll probably add a match link so you can watch it and see what you think.

I will be upset if I do get Vac’d, I played average and against people two levels above me. At the end of the match everyone laughed as I was GN4 and top scorer.

League Of Legends – The Struggle

image

I don’t play League much on the EU servers but when I do I’m nearly always the worst on my team. Although I’m in the EU I have an NA account too due to me playing a lot with my American friends. My NA account is full of champions and to be honest I can hold my own thanks to the main guy I play with. We have a sixth sense on what each of us is thinking and manage to push or defend when needed. I just can’t seem to find a flow on the EU servers, I win only 1 in 5 matches and even then it’s not a huge win. I can’t blame the guy I play with he’s new so only learning. The saltiness is also overwhelming when it comes to most matches, getting ganked by someone who was fed for the first 20 mins isn’t easy,teammates see this as a deliberate feed rather then what it is. I also see bad calls not only by me but by others, calling a top rush when everyone is on bottom only to bump into the entire opposing team.

I have spent the last three days struggling to find the skills to make a decent build or even attempt to try new champions.
For someone who played less then once a month I shouldn’t feel so bad I’m doing crap but sometimes I can’t help but rage at everyone else for not being able to read my mind.

Blacklight Retribution – Where Is My Stuff

image

When Blacklight Retribution was first released on the PC I was a huge fan due to my love of FPS games. I soon started throwing money at it on a monthly basis. I never actually got any better at the game but I still enjoyed playing. Back then it was ran by Zombie Studios but they closed up early 2015 and reopened as Hardsuit Labs. I at this time played this game maybe once every few months but still liked it. The new devs decided to implement parity over all of its versions meaning the clean PC UI was changed to the ugly and dull Console version, the premade weapons have been removed and along with all this most of my inventory including stuff that was so rare I will never be able to get again.

I have attempted to contact the Dev numerous times but have still not got my items back. The one I miss the most is my Troll Face Emote and My Helmet with a Skull and Crossbones on I think it was called the Jolly Rodger. Out of it all the thing that gets to me the most is items I bought with Zen got refunded for ingame, credit which was nowhere near the value of the items I lost. not including my Rare Helmets and emotes which I traded for PayPal Cash and steam cards.

I will continue to play Blacklight but there will always be a disgruntled hatred towards the Dev old and new.
