New missions (South Africa, Factions) coming for Secret World Legends.

Looks promising: another mission in South Africa — but, more importantly, the faction-specific missions are coming back.  It looks like they’re going to be repeatable, and will scale up based on level; that’s kind of nice.  My character one-shotted Cthulhu the other day, and it was kind of embarrassing.

Actually, now that I think about it the whole thing was a lot like this scene: (more…)

My friend from Secret World Legends passed.

MadLyric was a good person and an excellent player; the Secret World community has always made it a point to be decent with each other and particularly the new folks, and Maddie was one of our touchstones for proper behavior.  I have never met her in person, but I was very fond of her.  My condolences and prayers for her husband, family, and loved ones.

‘Samurai Witcher.’

Not ‘official,’ but it should be.

Note, by the way, that this is not how ‘my’ Geralt fights a griffin.  ‘My’ Geralt runs around flailing like a crazy person while mashing every button he can until the monster is dead.   This is more how Geralt would fight if he had control over the buttons.

@SJGames’ Ogre now on Steam Summer Sale.

Ogre — Steve Jackson Games’ classic turn-based robotic tank wargame, now in digital form — is ten bucks off between now and July. I believe that the technical term for this is ‘ka-ching;’ I was waiting for this to go on Steam Summer Sale, and now it has.   I look forward to blowing a lot of stuff up now.

Finally went ahead and fired up The Black Watchmen.

What is it? Well, as the game itself says: “In the first ever Permanent Alternate Reality Game, you join the ranks of The Black Watchmen, a paramilitary group dedicated to protecting the public from dangerous phenomena beyond human understanding: ritualistic murder, occult secret societies, and the paranormal, to name but a few.” This is the sort of thing that I’m either going to rapidly fall in love with, or end up hating with an equal passion. Either way, I need to clear my mind out of the mental ruts I’m finding myself starting to form. Shake up the old neurons, you know what I mean? Puzzle-solving should help with that a bit, I’m sure.

Secret World Legends’ Anniversary event starts Wednesday.

The current Tribal Cache* is going away, so if you wanted that zebra mount you better hurry up.  There’s going to be a special cache for players during the event, and after that they’re bringing back the Agarthan Cache. …And with that news comes a major collapse in the Secret World Legends commodities market.  People who didn’t sell their Agarthan Caches earlier are going to take a bath on ’em.
