If you haven't heard of World of Warcraft Classic, let me be the first to welcome you to the old school MMO that sucked the lives out of everyone playing it. WoW Classic is just as it's labeled. Going back to the original game before all the expansions, streamlined content, easy combat, and leveling. Shed all of the fat and go back to the cut and dry World of Warcraft. To be honest the original recipe is my cup of tea. WoW Classic brings you back to when you actually had to read quest to find your destination; you have to put in the time and effort to learn and craft a character that you are on this adventure with. Nothing is given, you have to earn it. So far I am ten hours in. I have a level ten dwarf hunter. Just a little perspective of the time that you will need to put into the game to achieve what you want in it. Now let's dive into this.
So, this is an interesting article to conjure up, but it’s one that I felt was worth talking about. I’ve found myself being increasingly drawn to this style of gameplay, and the main reason I find it interesting to talk about is because I hate the whole aspect of the idly clicking away at a game for hours component. This brings me to a very useful reason for writing this article and that is that by justifying my own reasons for playing these types of games, despite previously said disinterest in the main aspect of the game, I might be able to convince other people who share a similar aversion to idle click nonsense as me to try out these games as well.
It finally happened. Blizzard Entertainment did what was once thought impossible. Yesterday, August 26th 2019, Blizzard released Classic World of Warcraft; they went all the way back to the beginning, a simpler time when there were no add-ons, no flying, no boosts, just your character and your wits. No more “easy mode” when it comes to Classic.
Back in the late 1990s, this little known company was created called Linden Lab. Philip Rosedale saw potential in the stages of Virtual living and in a nutshell, a spark was lit. Want to meet people globally? Want to create, build, explore what other users have created/built/explored? Walk into the stage that was set, called Second Life.
Aside from E.K. Johnston's recently released Star Wars: Queen's Shadow, the only time in my life when I had a strong intuition that a novel of any sort would be good was when I first heard about Bionic Penguin's visual novel The Falconers: Moonlight two years ago. My intuition was so strong, in fact, that I wasn't sure I wanted to even test the waters with their demo first before purchasing the full game.
Casinos began to rise in the 17th Century, mainly in Italy. But today you can find casino’s almost anywhere. Even if there are just small casino machines in your local restaurant. Adults will typically go to casinos on special occasions or to just have a good time. Whether the occasion is your 21st birthday, a well-deserved vacation, or just finally having a great time while taking some risks. However, in new technology, you don't need to plan an entire time of getting away or going out when you want to have a spectacular time. Casinos are available online to win real cash and genuinely enjoy your experience from the comfort of your home. You need to know where is the best place to be spending your money, whether it be online or in an actual casino. This includes the right source, a trusted website, and of course, a wonderful gambling setting. Especially when you want more than just your typical casino.
Between 1998 and the present day, HeR Interactive has released 33 point-and-click adventure games centered around everyone's favorite nosy know-it-all, Nancy Drew. Just in case you forgot about these games, we'll take a trip down nostalgia lane. I'll be focusing on Secrets Can Kill (1998) and The Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon (2005), but all games are valid. Before you know it, you'll have Ned Nickerson's phone number memorized again. And if you've never forgotten it... you won't even be needing a second chance. Love, Nancy.
Last time I did a game review, I played Kingdom: Classic for hours on end just to be sure I’d adequately researched my review of it. Now I’ve moved on to Kingdom: New Lands to stay loyal to the franchise and to ensure that I continue to avoid work and household chores. For just like the original, Kingdom: New Lands will consume your whole life. A lot has stayed the same moving from one version to the other, but a lot has also changed—including some cool new additions that add just enough variety to keep you hooked on beating all the monsters and completing the game. (It is possible, although it might not feel like it when you get started!). You will likely need more than one sitting, though, as there’s way more game to get through. Yes, this new game has many extra levels instead of just one nightmarish plain for you to survive in!
Undead Horde is a strategy game where you raise an army of undead to battle the living. Check out our Early Access impressions to see how it's coming along.
The proliferation of online casinos has changed the way we go about gambling. It has opened up this once cliquey world of land-based casino gambling to a much wider audience. Men and women of all ages and backgrounds can now get involved. It has also changed how we play casino games. New rules are being invented and adapted almost constantly; new ways of playing are being implemented and faster games with more instant rewards are being implemented. The online gambling world is quick to change to the wants, needs, and whims of its players.
Sims. The game created by EA to allow us to control human beings without being scolded, told we are too controlling, having psychological problems, or feeling any guilt whatsoever. We can tell them when to go away (in which I wish I could do to real life humans as they are pains-in-the-arse). We can tell them we to pee! I mean, imagine this: "Mother, I order you to urinate. No, I do not care that you are eating or working. You will stop that right this instant, and head to the loo and pee." She gets up and does exactly what you say, talking to herself and strolling happily, even though I ruined her work, causing her to get fired, or letting her food go cold. Oh no, they do not care, these simulated humans. They do what you say. God, I wish Sims were real.
Faerie Quests are great, they help you level up at a faster rate and they're also just plain fun. However, they would be so much easier if we could just use the Shop Wizard. Luckily, I have found some completely allowed ways to find the items they're looking for. Now, I want to share them with you.
