FunCom has Conan.

This is not code language. FunCom is plugging Conan because FunCom owns Conan. Nothing else I could say would make more sense given what Funcom owns and what FunCom is doing at this moment*.

*Classical reference. God, but I miss Achewood.

Tencent looking to acquire Funcom.

Some details here: basically, Tencent is offering to buy out Funcom stockholders at a decent price above current closing. For those following at home, Tencent is the Chinese tech megacorp with a dubious history involving software piracy that isn’t being specifically targeted as a notorious national security risk by the US government. But I suspect that I’m being rude by pointing out that particular distinction.

So, what does that mean for The Secret World MMO? …Probably nothing, dammit. Unless they decide that they need to bring back the Chinese PvP map again. That’d be nice.

@SecretWorldLgds announces a new contest for me to lose.

FunCom is calling the The MEGAversary Warped Songs Contest!

This contest will ask for submissions from you, the [Secret Worlds Legends] community, to take a popular song and warp it into something… wonderful! Or something funny and perhaps even hilarious!

Second Tokyo board drops this week on Secret World Legends.

Also, stage two of any vanity transfers from your old The Secret World account to the new Secret World Legends account.  So, basically, go into your old account, buy every pet and hat you can find, and generally drain your account of various currencies.  Then go transfer it over, and voila! – You get a bunch of your old cosmetics back.

…Yeah, I know that this isn’t really interesting to people who read me and who don’t play SWL, but it’s the second-most exciting thing that’s going to happen around here this week*.  Anyway, they’re going to be putting up the Tokyo Docks this week, and there’s a bunch of changes involved.  It’s promising to be very exciting, although I don’t think that we’re quite at the point where we’re getting the Tokyo dungeons back; I guess those and the Tokyo Lair is going to be bundled up with the Orochi Tower later.
