Loving playing Diablo3 right now. Really reminds me of Path of Exile (or I suppose Path of Exile reminds me of Diablo?) - I ended up just buying the base game but we will probably grab the expansion as well once we're closer to 60.

FriedClams: Enjoy your game with an open faced turkey sandwich with gravy!

I've been game hopping a bit recently - but we're just trying to find a game that both of us enjoy (my partner and I).

benevolentia: @EternalMemory - yes we are looking for a game we both enjoy. I mean I get what you're saying - and the consensus is the same from what I've read online - we need to get to level 50+ to experience it properly. Personally, I think that's a bad model. Why should I have to get to the end before I experience the game? It should be engaging and enjoyable from start to finish.It's all good though, I think Diablo III will be better for us as we can jump in, and run through the Campaign together from the get-go. It's also more my partners style, he's not a huge fan of MMORPG's like RO, but he did really enjoy Tera so I thought we'd give it a go!I have been looking at Bless online actually! I just saw your post about it as well. We will definitely keep an eye on it. I've been meaning to give BDO a try as well.. It looks fabulous.. Maybe after we're done with D3!
captain: @benevolentia: you could always give Dr Mario a try! :D Gl / hf!

Running dungeons with my partner in RevelationOnline. We're currently sitting at level 29, and so far it's been mostly solo-play which is a bit off-putting.

EternalMemory: @benevolentia You are not levelling properly. It should take you 4 hours to get to level 40 from nothing. and maybe 5 days(if you play casually) to get to 49. The Storyline-Quest and Orange-Quests are not your source of Experience, it shouldn't be as they are not a good-source! Do your MH-Trial everyday, do your 4-Kings everyday(this can stack 3-times), do your Spa everyday(this can stack 5-times), do your Scour-Dungeon(the latest for your level-bracket with your 2-times from Muril), and do your 3-weekly Lampy-Creek(the 25-step-quest. or Sulan or whatever it is for your level-bracket. do it with full 5-member-party for best-EXP-gain). These are your source of Experience and not the storyline that you talk about. If you play like me, this should take you 3 days. Gearing your Character, everything normal(not intricate, not strengthen) Handcrafting Blueprints. Once you get to 59, just throw those trash. At 49 and even 59, it is not worth your time to go the Synthesis-way at this current-situation. Just handcraft it out because they are cheap. You don't have to die for them. So 49 and 59, you will handcraft everything. This is what I recommend. These are the servers that you should be playing on. Either one of these. Snowpine = WindiaDarkfall = Scania(the cool-kids are all in Snowpine! Snowpine is hottest-Server to date!)Not these;Tusenwood = GRAZED or GaliciaMuroc = Broa/Khaini
benevolentia: Thanks for the tips @EternalMemory; however, we've lost interest in the game due to the lack of content we could complete together during the early stages of the game.The content you've mentioned was not intuitive or obvious as a new player to RO, and alas, we played how we would play any other MMORPG - by trying to progress through the main story and pick up side quests & do dungeons in each area as we go along.We've gone to Diablo III again, hahah.I do appreciate the information you've provided though, but this game just didn't grab us :)

I sunk a little bit of time into RevelationOnline last night, so here are my first impressions.
3 5
benevolentia: @EternalMemory - Games can't rely on end-game content being the only enjoyable component though. To gain new players you need to have an engaging experience available for ALL levels, including those still leveling up through the beginner to intermediate areas.If my enjoyment of the game is being hindered because I'm not high enough level, then that's a problem in itself. TERA, for example, is a 10/10 experience from start to finish. The lower and mid-level dungeons are always bustling and instance matching never takes longer than 5-10 minutes. We're not giving up though, we are still playing and will progress further and work on obtaining better gear for the later dungeons / instances - but that doesn't prevent our frustration at not being able to really play together during this time putting a damper on the entire experience.Yep! I've stuck to action combat. I tried the other controls but it was not as natural feeling and seemed like a lot more work! I'll stick to action combat definitely, thanks for the advice :)What controls should a healing character use? Is action combat not a good choice for them?
EternalMemory: @benevolentia I am also a Healer myself. To keep my party alive, yes, you must use Tab-targetting to target your Teammate. It is easier that way. If you have any further question, don't hesitate to PM, I am at current end-game myself. They will raise the level-cap to 79 within months, they are just working on localizing and preparing it. I have been playing this game since the first-Closed-BETA, I'm fluent in Chinese, and I am experienced in this game. My advice is to just know what you are supposed to do. I already pointed to you some advice, Blueprint your Gears at 49 because they are way more cheaper and less time-consuming. you have to catch-up, that is your goal. Use your connections with your guild to get carried on your Expert-Dungeons for your Demonslayer. Personally, with no other diversion, I can get to 59 within 2 weeks with full gold-Gear. (with the current situation now, and the deflation of 59-below-stuff) I just know how to do it. This game is hard to understand for new-players, but just try to cope with it. Use this game as a filler game, then we will move to Bless, including I. there is no good-games to play right now, except for Black-Desert. You you will also die for Black Desert, trust me.

I know I just posted a Pocket MS screenshot, but I got around to downloading the Korean version of MapleStory M and it is AWESOME. Its is seriously a tiny mobile version of the desktop game. Cleaner controls, multiplayer everywhere instead of just in towns, and way more customisation.

Helpingly: Didn't even know there was a Korean version.
benevolentia: @captain - pretty sure there are bosses, I'm not high enough level to confirm that yet but I believe I saw videos of zakum and the sorts.@Helpingly - it's the only version right now, there is no Global/English version :( Hence me stumbling around on the KR one (I don't know any Korean! I just press buttons until things work!) And yeah, it's a little cluttered... The awesome gameplay makes up for it though :P

Decided to pop on to PocketMS and kill some time while I was away. I played this initially at launch in Australia but haven't touched it since. I have a 110 Angelic Buster but decided to remake a Mercedes instead of continuing since it's been so long.

benevolentia: @Helpingly - Maplestory Adventures! I remember that game! Good fun.
random87: I've wasted some time on that!I usually play Maplestory with a friend, but when her PC died we decided to give PocketMS a try.Much like normal Maplestory we got bored quite fast.

benevolentia: @privateereck - Hahha I play pretty casually. I don't have that many hours logged on it.
privateereck: @benevolentia last thing I recall doing was playing with pistols only online, and I wasn't doing so bad.

Skyforge has come to PS4 which is pretty cool. It's the same as the PC version, but since I don't have a gaming PC anymore this is really awesome. Definitely going to sink some hours into this.

FriedClams: Enjoy your game with some orange wafers!
benevolentia: @EternalMemory - yes, that's the same Skyforge, just released for PS4 now! :)Nah, I'm not interested in a gaming PC anymore :P I don't play enough to warrant it, and I'm happy with the games available on PS4 or which run smoothly on my bootcamped Mac Book Pro :D

Finished Episode 2 of AttackOnTitan Season 2 last weekend, still feeling pretty slow off the mark and sluggish. Considering Season 1 finished mid-way through a manga chapter I was expecting the level of excitement to be similar to how we left off.

HawtNoodle: Oh so Season 2 is a thing? Thought it was a april fools joke.
benevolentia: @Helpingly - I read a bit of the manga also, but I'm definitely finding S2 pretty slow so far...@HawtNoodle - Nope! It's real :D

I downloaded 'Blacklight: Retribution' on the PS4 the other day. It's pretty small (5GB) and actually plays pretty well for a free-to-play shooter. It has a cash shop style system where you can purchase new gear, but the free stuff is nice enough to play with so I'm not too bothered.

HorizonZeroDawn is probably one of the best console single-player games released in the last 10 years. It has an engaging story, absolutely breathtaking world design, and interesting side quests and adventures.

captain: Wow, it's gotten some great ratings and the plot sounds really interesting. I don't have a PS4, but if/when I get one I would surely try this, thanks for the recommendation. What others are you into?Did completing to 100% get you anything special or is just the satisfaction of knowing you did it to true completion?
benevolentia: It didn't get me anything special - just a sense of satisfaction that I'd completed all there was to complete. However, I definitely think you miss some really interesting facts and snippets about the world of Horizon Zero Dawn if you don't explore beyond the main story line.I mostly play MMORPG's or first person shooters. I usually move between the same games: Maplestory, Destiny, Battlefield, Tera Online. I've been thinking of playing Skyforge once it's released on PS4 (I played the PC version a while back and it was quite fun - it's an instanced dungeon style MMORPG).
