The latest Sea of Thieves Inn-Side story has been published that takes a bit of time to discuss the 2-player Sloop, a small ship that can be piloted by two players or even one for those who are inclined to take on the game alone. Being in a smaller ship, however, doesn't protect pirates from the attacks of larger ships so players will need to slightly more cautious...or they can throw caution to the wind and go up against all comers. In this video, Senior Designers Shelley and Andrew Preston give a quick overview of what to expect when setting out on a solo ship and how it measures up to the full-sized galleon experience Check out out and then head off for the Sea of Thieves site to learn more. … [Read more...] about Latest Inn-Side Story Explores 2-Pirate Sloop
Yes, that’s right. I made a Pokemon reference. Warning: The following post contains spoilers for Mass Effect 2 (and to a lesser extent, Mass Effect 1). You have been warned! Areas covered: The Convict, The Krogan, Horizon, The Quarian, The Assassin, The Justicar My adventures with Mass Effect 2 continued over the last two days as Shepard travels all over the galaxy recruiting her team for the final mission against the enemy. Three days of playing under my belt and I’m still not done getting them all (yep, this is going to be a loooong game)! And wow, what a great bunch of characters. I’m already frustrated that I only ever get to take up to two of them with me out on missions. I did notice one thing as I was playing. So far, Mass Effect 2 is fitting the “formula” that their other games tend to follow, i.e. completing the initial mission, followed by going to 3 or 4 different places before going to a final destination, which then culminates in an … [Read more...] about Mass Effect 2 Companions: Gotta Catch ’em All!
Even though I am playing playing much of it this very moment… Destiny holds an extremely special place in my heart. I love this game and I love what it has become over the course of the two expansions… and multiple content patches. They promised a setting as deep and rich and Star Wars, and while a lot of people will disagree with me… I feel that they ultimately delivered on that. The problem however is that they did not deliver in a contiguous story that was easy to learn. Instead they sprinkled the game with environmental storytelling and nuggets of information that the faithful had to gather up and piece together to learn what was happening in the world. Personally this made me want to know more about the world because each time I uncovered a truth it was like discovering another piece that fit into a giant puzzle I was trying to assemble in my head. For many others however… including the vast majority of my … [Read more...] about Destiny 2 Hopes
I was curious where I could go with my level and found it a bit difficult to spot the level range on the map. I know I can always “downlevel” to zones below my level. That means that the “1-15” does not tell you to leave Plains of Ashford once you’re level 16 or 17. You can stay there as long as you want because your level will be adjusted to the current area you are in. You will not be levelled up in PvE, though! I have already set foot into a high level area with Flummi and she didn’t feel comfortable at all in there. Neither did the poor guy in Kessex Hills with level 16 when he was surrounded by level 24 mobs. Sure, you can enter with level 15, but you should be aware of your surroundings as the mobs can be much higher in level than you are in some corners.
