Not All Randoms Are Created Equal


I really need to be more vocal about my complaints and compliments when it comes to games. The above Kripparrian video demonstrates the inability to play around an opposing mage when half their hand is composed of randomly-generated cards. (Like a number of my more recent Hearthstone-related posts) I agree with Kripp, but I'd like to address an underlying issue that makes the problem even worse.

Iron Snout | You Have 10 Seconds 2 - The Friday FREE GAME Feature! #100

WildStar - Week 3 - MMOMG


Instead of a recap this week, I felt it was worth addressing WildStar's reputation and the unreasonable amount of hate and negativity surrounding it. I'm sure this video isn't going to sit well with some people, but so be it.

Friday FREE GAME Feature #100 Tonight! Be There!


Tune in to my Twitch channel tonight (starts 6:45pm ET) for the 100th broadcast of The Friday FREE GAME Feature! During the stream I'll have a special announcement as well as games, goodies and more! I hope to see you there!

Mind-Blowing Massive Build On An Anarchy Server!


Not sure how I missed this, but holy crap! These amazing buildings were supposedly constructed by hand in survival on what I've heard is the oldest anarchy server (2b2t.org). You can imagine nothing lasts long on those, but the city's location remained secret for some time. There was a well-known item dupe trick being used to gather the materials, but all the blocks were placed legitimately. That alone is a massive undertaking on any server, let alone one where it could all be gone in moments.

Eschalon: Book I - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


Eschalon: Book I is an open-world, turn-based isometric RPG released in 2007. If it looks older, that's because it was purposely crafted in the classic style of the games it pays homage to. So, how does it stack up against these memorable titles?

Valeera's Got a Brand New Bag! Tavern Brawl - RNGBS


This brawl was so RNG-oriented I decided to skip arena this week. Free From Amber returns for more crazy results!

WildStar - Week 2 - MMOMG


Two weeks in, and I can't wait to play again (tonight)! My first venture into the Ruins of Kel Voreth was amazing and left a great impression! Looking online at what creative players have done with their plots is also very inspiring!

Fallout Shelter - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


Fallout Shelter is a building and management simulator in the popular Fallout universe. It's a mobile game that's been ported to PC and recently made it to Steam. If you're like me, you probably just clicked away right now and I honestly don't blame you. Everything I really needed to say about this game is in the video anyway.

The Salt Mines of Un'Goro - Arena - RNGBS


Arena on day one of Journey to Un'Goro was... interesting. We learned a few things - Free From Amber is often amazing and Bittertide Hydra is essentially the opposite.

WildStar - Week 1 - MMOMG


Of the titles I've played for this series so far, I believe WildStar has given me my best first week since Project Gorgon. Progression feels well-paced and the world is still fresh and interesting for me. Here's to hoping it can maintain most of that for the rest of the month - I'm looking forward to playing this week!

The Problems With Quests


I'm happy to see Kripp speaking out on behalf of the free (and low investment) players lamenting the importance placed on legendary and epic cards with the release of Journey To Un'Goro. I agree that even the Hall of Fame bonus dust is unlikely to be enough for the majority of players, and perhaps doling out a random quest to everyone that logged in might've helped alleviate the problem somewhat.

However, I feel there's another issue concerning quest cards that's not getting nearly enough attention due to the above complaints, and it's perhaps part of that problem as well as an overall design issue.

Syberia II - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


Join a genius inventor and his automaton engineer on a journey to a legendary island!

Syberia II is a point-and-click puzzle adventure game originally released in 2004. It's currently available free on Origin, likely to help promote the long-awaited sequel (Syberia III) that's set to release this month.

In case you missed last night's stream, let me catch you up to speed with this highlight video. The adventure continues tonight at 8pm at my Twitch channel!

Mysterious Island - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


A hybrid of RPG and survival with impressive AI and charming characters!

Mysterious Island is an adventure RPG available free for a very limited time over at itch.io. You play as a band of colorful characters stranded on an island after their ship crashed. Exploring the island, you discover a mix of inhabitants - from friendly talking totems and helpful natives to dangerous animals and monsters led by an evil witch. Your goal is to build a raft so you can sail home, which means facing the island's dangers that stand in your way.

Down the Rabbithole - Hayven Games (WoW Exploration)


Videos exploring the hidden or hard-to-reach places in WoW are what really got me interested in the game many years ago. While watching some random videos today, I stumbled upon Hayven Games, a channel devoted to finding the really hidden stuff. Take the above video for example - a look at an alpha version of Ironforge with two tiers, an entirely different Great Forge area and tram lines running to both Stormwind and Gnomeregan.

My interest in WoW dropped right around the time Hayven's channel began, so it's no wonder I haven't noticed this awesome channel until now. I'll certainly be sinking a few hours of free time into these videos, taking in sights of things that never saw the light of day. There's just something about seeing these alternate/hidden versions of the game I find intriguing, even though I have no interest in the title itself anymore. Nostalgia obviously plays a part of it, but I think it's more about imagining what could've been.

The Ultimate Test... of RNG! Arena - RNGBS


Grimestreet Informant (and to a lesser extent, Grimestreet Protector) doing work in arena again. This deck had a 63.8 tier score (according to Hearth Arena), the lowest I've had since before Christmas. It fared much better than I could've hoped and I feel the cards mentioned above are what carried it so far.

YouTube Channel Update


I wanted to make sure my YouTube subscribers knew what happened these last few weeks. To stay updated, it's best to follow me on Twitter now.

Also, I'm getting close to 100 episodes of "The Friday FREE GAME Feature!" and would appreciate your input! Leave a comment here, on the video or on Twitter!

Mega Man 2.5D - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


"Highlights" might be a bit of a misnomer - perhaps a fail compilation is more appropriate!

Mega Man 2.5D is a fan-made game lovingly crafted by a small team led by Peter Sjöstrand. I'm pressed for time, so I'll cut to the chase. This game does a wonderful job at recreating the classic series you remember from the NES. It's compatible with Xbox controllers, allows for co-op play and even has save features! Be sure to give this one a try!

Echo of Soul - Week 4 - MMOMG (w/bonus Youtube gripe)


It's finally here! Apologies for the delay, but I didn't really have access or means to finish the episode until now. I intend to make a small channel update video soon to explain the delay in content and what's coming next, as I feel my Youtube-only viewers probably have no idea what's going on.

Speaking of which, I'd really like if Youtube had other ways to communicate to subscribers other than uploading videos. There used to exist a "Feed" section that you could post messages, but it either doesn't exist or is so buried that it doesn't matter anymore. I've heard that they're trying out a similar feature for the large channels, hopefully we'll see it roll out to everyone else soon.

PC Status & New Etsy Stuff!

A friend let me borrow a power supply, and thankfully I've learned that the rest of my system is unharmed. After I figure out what I'm using permanently, I'll sort out the Youtube and Twitch stuff. My guess is that MMOMG - Wildstar will be pushed back to April, but we'll see.

In the meantime, I have new stuff on Etsy with more coming soon!

For the sports fans, a selection of coasters with fully customized colors!

Comic book fans might appreciate this snazzy Superman beadsprite, complete with stand!

PC Died Mid-Stream, Temporary Focus Shift

Last week while livestreaming, my PC's power supply went belly-up. I've been having minor issues with it off and on (no pun intended) the last 6-8 months, so I'm not too surprised that it finally died. Other priorities got in the way of me replacing it sooner, and now I really have no choice but to get a new one.

I still haven't gotten to see if the rest of the system is OK - nothing looks damaged, but that doesn't mean much of course. If only the power supply needs replaced, I should be up and running again soon-ish (say within a month). If something more serious was affected (let's hope not), the delay will be quite a lot longer.

In the meantime, I'll be focusing a little more on my Etsy shop with some new designs! I'll post new items when they become available, so stay tuned!

Echo of Soul - Get Into Infinite Dungeons! The Dogma Set Quest Guide


Got something a bit different for you today. JohnKYBlue shows us how to get the Dogma gear set, which allows you to entry into Infinite Dungeons in Echo of Soul! I edited out the cutscenes to avoid story spoilers as much as possible, enjoy!

MMOMG March: Wildstar


March's MMOMG is Wildstar! I've been looking forward to trying this one out - there's supposed to be a lot of content, especially instances. It kicks off tonight at 8pm ET on my Twitch channel, so come join in the fun!

I'll be working on the final episode for Echo of Soul soon, but I might have an additional EoS-related video out in the next day or so.

Eschalon: Book I is FREE on GOG!


Eschalon: Book I is an open-world, turn-based, isometric RPG from 2006 built in the style of classics such as Icewind Dale, Baldur's Gate and Fallout. The game focuses on character customization with lots of skills available (including a cartography skill that affects your game's auto-map). In addition to HP, you also have to manage hunger and thirst, and overall this title does little hand-holding.

Considering it's currently free over at GOG.com, you might as well pick it up and give it a try! Oh, it's probably worth noting that it's available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Echo of Soul - Week 3 - MMOMG


I really enjoyed this week of play, primarily because battlefields here are pretty fun. The guild I joined has been begging me to stay another month, which is a nice departure from the aloof/uncaring attitude of most game communities.

While I have another title lined up, I just might consider hanging around Echo of Soul another month. It depends on how much endgame content is available, and I'll be getting firsthand experience of that tonight.

Abobo's Big Adventure - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


A nostalgia-filled adventure featuring the real star of Double Dragon!

Abobo's Big Adventure blends a number of classic NES games with some '80s references (and a generous helping of crude humor) to provide a hilarious trip down memory lane.

Echo of Soul - Week 2 - MMOMG


I have mixed feelings on Echo of Soul so far. From a gameplay perspective, I haven't seen anything new of note yet. The game isn't terrible, it's just kind of basic. In terms of visuals, it's great - there's a lot of cool little features everywhere and I think Rimen looks neat! The community seems kind of sparse, but I've yet to meet a rude person (quality v. quantity I guess). The story has kind of trailed off a bit, as I'm chasing down shards I already rescued earlier but were stolen. The quests themselves are still fairly dull with lots of pop culture references - hopefully things pick up this week.

Hearthstone - Questions v. Answers


I found a great video by AsmodeusClips that thoughtfully presents some of Hearthstone's fundamental problems and provides a couple of suggestions toward fixing them. The type of game he claims Hearthstone could be (with actual play/counterplay) shows up sometimes in Tavern Brawls, and they end up being generally well-received. 

I for one would love seeing "answer" cards with more utility/options. I've never been a fan of 0-mana ramp, as it causes problems similar to those of Dark Ritual and Moxen in MtG. The big mechanic stuff (like Blood of the Ancient One) I don't mind so much, maybe because they're simply impossible to pull off (thus rarely if ever seen), since Hearthstone's meta has almost always favored aggro decks.

Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


Defend your homestead against the forces of darkness!

Sang-Froid: Tales of Werewolves is a tower defense style game with action RPG elements. Set in rural Canada 1858, you play as one of two brothers trying to protect your siblings and home from numerous wolf attacks. Armed with a logging axe and rifle, you soon discover the wolves are the least of your worries!

Deathlord, Such a Troll! Arena - RNGBS


Deathlord may be the focus of this video, but I gotta hand it to the Grimy Goons. It's astonishing how often their largest buffs land on things that either can't be targeted or have a relevant battlecry (like Dispatch Kodo).

Saturday, February 11, 2017

Echo of Soul - Week 1 - MMOMG


After a week of playing, I've come to appreciate Echo of Soul's art style despite the constricted world design. I suppose if you're working with a smaller canvas, you can focus more on the details, which seems to be the case here. While I don't really talk about community until the final episode (as first impressions aren't always accurate), the other players have been helpful and friendly so far.

Negative Subscribers on Youtube Glitch!


So, you've probably heard people complaining that YouTube's subscriber counts have seemed a bit dodgy lately. The folks over at BlackScreenTV have discovered why!

There's a glitch, and it's super easy to replicate. Whenever someone unsubscribes from a channel, it's being counted twice. If people repeatedly subscribe and unsubscribe, the overall total just keeps dropping. Using that knowledge, BlackScreenTV is currently livestreaming on YouTube with running totals of several popular channels, watching them drop. They are currently at -1,554 subscribers (yes, negative subscribers)!

I think I speak for the entire community when I say, "Fix your site, Blizzard!" :~P

Seriously though, this explains why people have been reporting strange fluctuations in their subscriber count. They aren't crazy, despite YouTube's replies that everything is working as intended.

Eternal Senia - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


Brave dangers and face fears to save your sister from a mysterious power!

Eternal Senia is an action adventure title with a large RPG influence and one heck of a story. You play as Senia, a girl that's ventured to the mysterious Tower of Eternity in hopes of tracking down your sister - a priest that went on a secretive mission and has been missing for the last three days.

Hearthstone Expansion Leaked: Lost Secrets of Un'Goro


Disguised Toast is at it again, reporting on what is likely the theme of the next Hearthstone expansion. It seems entirely feasible, considering past early information from previous releases. Un'Goro Crater is a very memorable zone in WoW, so I'm pleased to see it as an upcoming Hearthstone theme.

Kripp's Hearthstone Ranked Play Rant


Since this is a Kripp video, chances are you've already seen or read about it, but I'm reposting it for sake of completeness.

I think Kripp hits multiple nails on the head here, as he mentions problems that affect more than just Standard Hearthstone play. The new player experience right now is possibly the worst ever, even with Standard's smaller card pool.

Most of my gaming friends have been playing Hearthstone for a while now, and like myself, have built up a fair collection of cards, gold and dust over time. When new expansions come out, most of us don't have a lot of work to do to stay current.

A few months ago, a couple of holdouts finally decided to give the game a try. I gave them as much help as I possibly could and welcomed them to join my circle of Hearthstone friends. Long story short, they gave up about two weeks ago. 

Despite all the tips and additional friends to learn from and play against, it wasn't enough. They felt the game was too reliant on having "the right cards" to actually succeed, and obtaining said cards was too slow of a process (short of paying cash up front).

If the meta was more diverse (and a bit slower), players wouldn't feel pressured into having all the cards necessary to play the winning decks. There would be a little more room for experimentation, and they might even be able to do alright with a few suboptimal cards. This pretty much was how things worked a couple years ago - it wasn't perfect then either, but you at least had the opportunity to experiment.

Path of Exile - Week 3 - MMOMG



This is the final MMOMG episode for Path of Exile. I really wish I hadn't played this game through Steam, as connectivity seems to be such an issue for it. I lost a lot of time I had set aside to stream it, simply due to being repeatedly disconnected.

As usual, I thought of a few more points I wanted to make after I had the entire video nearly done. I was able to add it to the episode via text, but it's not quite how I would like it. Gonna chalk my errors up to having a cold all week - yeah, that's the ticket! For those of you who read these posts, I'd like to stress two positive features of the game I didn't verbally include in the video.

The community overall is pretty helpful and friendly even to new players. I saw a lot of newbie questions repeated in chat throughout the month, and never did I notice a rude reply - often, it was followed by a straightforward answer, which is refreshing compared to most games' online communities.

Also, the cash shop has no "pay to win" features. It's mostly cosmetics that frankly look quite nice (that stormcaller stuff had me drooling a bit). You can also get more stash tabs, which is convenient if you're going to play a lot of alts or contributing to a guild, but not really necessary.

MMOMG February: Echo of Soul


This month, I'll be streaming Echo of Soul (published by Aeria Games) Sundays through Wednesdays at 8pm ET on my Twitch channel. I thought a "standard MMO" - something without a lot of frills or gimmicks - would be good for a shorter month and from what I've heard, EoS fits the bill. I'm going in with relatively low expectations, so hopefully some (good) things will surprise me.

As for January's MMOMG, the final episode for Path of Exile will be out (hopefully) within a week.

Intelligent Design - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


Create and modify plants and animals on an alien surface in this futuristic sandbox!

Intelligent Design is a sandbox simulation set in the future. Your job is to populate a distant body in space (which I assume is the crater of an asteroid or barren planet) with flora and fauna, with the goal of building a thriving ecosystem. Piloting a drone on the crater's surface, you direct the placement of everything from plant matter to force fields.

Razorgore SUCKS! Tavern Brawl - RNGBS



I'm not sure who the best boss was this week in Tavern Brawl, but I'm fairly certain of the worst. Poor Razorgore has no board clears, joke removal and a terrible curve. The few low-cost minions he does have are basement-tier like Frostwolf Grunt.

I normally don't care a lot about "balance" in Tavern Brawl (since they only last a few days), but why add a deck that's obviously worse than the rest AND has a hero power that auto-loses to a third of the the other bosses? Also, as it replaces the druid this week, why doesn't it have Savage Roar as the buff card (instead of Bloodlust)?

By the way, there is a third way to win as Razorgore. Hope for a mirror match. :P

Razorgore aside, I really enjoyed the boss battle brawl this week. I've been hoping for something like this since the first brawl of Nefarian v. Ragnaros and I'm happy to see they finally added way more bosses.

There Is No Game & Mandagon - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


It's time for another double feature! This week, I'm checking out There Is No Game and Mandagon.

First up is There Is No Game, a point-and-click flash (non)game that won a DeceptionJam competition. Simply put, I rather enjoyed this title. It's clever and quite silly, but has a couple of little puzzles to figure out to proceed. If you're stuck, the narrator drops hints now and then to keep you going in the form of funny anecdotes.

Speaking of which, the narrator's accent and dialogue really make the game (despite his insistence that it is not a game). In an attempt to be a wise guy, I thought I'd reply to the narrator... and was pleasantly surprised to hear many of his next remarks sound like replies to my comments! It goes to show how much well-written dialogue (and timing) can really push a piece of work.

Mandagon (the second game) is an exploration platformer that covers some Tibetan philosophy concerning a parent's sacrifice for their sick child. The game's atmosphere reflects the sobering topic, but softens it with calming imagery of Tibetan temples and mystical totems. The music matched up quite well alongside the content and visual presentation, as it mostly felt peaceful but had some melancholy bits to keep it from being too serene.

After having some time to think on both games while collating the highlights, I have a somewhat worse impression of Mandagon. Ironically, there's more "game" in There Is No Game, which was supposed to be the joke of the episode. Topics aside, the dialogue's presentation was easier to relate to and there were more game elements to keep you interested in There Is No Game.

For a short title, Mandagon's gameplay is actually quite repetitive. You wander the map looking for tablets and place them in matching totems. The story is revealed along the way in the form of two-line rhymes written on signs. I'm fairly certain that one could ignore the signs entirely and still complete the game, though they would be somewhat confused by its ending. This really marginalizes the Tibetan philosophy the title was supposedly so inspired by, and I can't help but think there has to be a better way to tie it into the game.

Path of Exile - Week 2 - MMOMG


This week, I round out my summoner build with some auras and learn the joys of trigger and spell totem support gems!

Small Change to Stream Schedule


Just a quick announcement to let everyone know I've decided to take Saturdays off my listed stream schedule.

I occasionally find myself pressed for time to edit and post videos to YouTube throughout the week and still keep up with my stream schedule. Additionally, having a stream-free day allows me to create other content... or just have a day off if I need it!

I expect this change might affect MMOMG episodes somewhat, as it will reduce the total time in-game each week. If that ends up being an issue, I can make it up by streaming a bit longer the remaining nights.

That said, there will be Saturday streams once in a while, just not part of anything "official" or at a scheduled time. Part of "creating other content" will be streaming entirely different games (such as WazHack, which I'm a tad fond of at the moment). Think of Saturday streams as a little surprise bonus!

Mass Effect 2 - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


This critically-acclaimed BioWare title is available free for a limited time on Origin!

Man, have we been spoiled these last few months. Between all the Uplay 30th anniversary freebies, Origin's offerings and some of the goodies available via Steam, about half the titles of this series (based on free games) have been blockbusters. This week is no exception, as Origin brings us Mass Effect 2 free for a limited time.

I'm a bit pressed for time and more than enough has already been written about this game, so I'll keep it brief. If you like BioWare titles (Jade Empire, Knights of the Old Republic, Dragon Age) this is perhaps one of the most polished of the bunch. It blends third-person action/shooting with RPG elements and gives you the ability to use cover and direct your squad members. As someone who was actually somewhat disappointed with KOTOR, I find this title a huge improvement both in pacing and playability. There's less character options than in KOTOR, but Mass Effect 2 feels more streamlined (and a lot less clunky) as a result.

Humble Bundle Best of 2016

I thought it's worth mentioning the titles available in the Humble Bundle Best of 2016, as it's a pretty good deal.

"Pay What You Want" Tier
  • Else Heart.Break() 
  • Evoland 2
  • Victor Vran
"Beat the Average" Tier (currently about $3.25 as I post this)
  • Rust (Early Access)  
  • Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition 
  • Stronghold Crusader 2
"Pay $10+" Tier
  • Homeworld Remastered Collection
There's even some bonus soundtracks, if you're into that.

Path of Exile - Week 1 - MMOMG


Technically, this is two short weeks rolled into one. I'm enjoying the game, but I wish there was some group content. I really wanted to play alongside friends, but PoE really isn't built with it in mind.

Boat + Mob Stacking = Bridges, Elevators, More?


Check out this interesting feature of boats and entities in Minecraft, brought to you by SimplySarc. Turns out you could do a couple fun things - perhaps a bridge or descending platform... hmm I wonder what else now?

The Cult of Bubble-Juggle! Arena Highlights - RNGBS


This is perhaps the most dominating arena deck I've ever had. The synergy was so high it felt like a constructed deck.

I'd like to take a moment to mention just how amazing Grimestreet Protector is. If you stay mindful of your minion position, you can just about close out a game with this guy. Getting a divine shield on something large that can then kill something equally large for free is huge. The meta right now seems too fast and aggressive to play cards like this, but if things slow down just a bit, you're looking at the new "Dr. 7" for standard.

Terrain Control Mod Makes Beautiful Minecraft Worlds!


I saw this video today from Xisumavoid and had to share it with my fellow Minecraft fans!

It looks like the Terrain Control Mod delivers some stunning landscapes for your Minecraft worlds. I like that there's structures included as well, but not so many as to take away focus from the terrain itself. I'm a little worried about its mob spawning properties - the video shows dozens of the same animal all spawned in one place. Hopefully there's some config options to tone that down a bit. Everything else is absolutely stunning though!

Path of Exile is January's MMOMG!

This month's title for MMOMG is Path of Exile! The first stream starts tomorrow night at 8pm ET on my twitch channel!

Minecraft Story Mode: Ep1 - The Friday FREE GAME Feature!


Ever wanted to experience your favorite sandbox game as a point-and-click adventure? That question never crossed my mind either.

Minecraft Story Mode is a new epic set in the blocky world you know and love. You play as Jesse, competing in the annual team building competition with your friends. You stumble onto the devious plot of the secretive Ivor, who plans to unleash a terrible monster in the middle of the convention as an act of revenge on the legendary warrior Gabriel.
