Whether it was worth it or not is a matter up for debate, one I’m not going to get into here. Personally, I thought it was a wicked cutscene, followed by a fantastic encounter with the Mad King in his otherworldly lair, and that overall the ArenaNet folks did an amazing job bringing us Act 3. I was thrilled to have been a part of it. … [Read more...] about How Do You Feel About One-Time-Only Events?

These attempted to be more lifelike, and had a racing and training system built into the breedable. Looking back at the manual on their website, apparently you had to pay to be certified to race or train, however. I haven’t heard much about these horses lately, and I have no idea on the status of this brand. … [Read more...] about Second Life: Finding Water Horse
Yes, they’re the most important part, I don’t care what Marksmen and Junglers say; that burst damage isn’t as important as you think it is, but that’s another talk for another day. In general, Tanks received a bit more durability in a variety of ways. Amumu, for example, his “E” now scales with bonus armor and magic resist, which I think is going to just be delightful to see (on my team). Tahm Kench saw some pretty significant changes, but not buffs like one might think by reading this section. Tongue Lash has seen a Cooldown Reduction (6 seconds ⇒ 5 seconds) and the Slow Duration was reduced to 1.5 seconds, so overall, that’s more balancing, less a buff. Devour/Regurgitate saw quite a few changes. The Devour Duration was shifted to be 4 seconds at all ranks, with the Enemy Champion Duration still half of the ally duration.

That said, all cores of the laptop’s Intel i5 6300HQ, even with boosting available, were still put under some continuous pressure when set to best appearance, and this was just while idling in Lion’s Arch. At a base clock of 2.3Ghz, we still found that this was consistent across all our systems. Processor utilization isn’t everything that we need to talk about when it comes to Guild Wars 2 but it is always going to be an obvious constraint, even in light activities. To show you just how egregious Guild Wars 2’s CPU hunger can be I dropped a toe into WvW, taking config 3 up against a zerg at best appearance and watch the CPU rocket up, maxing out on several occasions and FPS falling through the floor, despite a 1080 and data center grade internet connection that is simply unparalleled by most home PC standards. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2 Is Slow…. Is It Time for a New PC?
If you have played several games developed by Perfect World, you would have noticed there is this similarity across all of its MMORPG titles, which includes tons of gameplay features, extravagant pets and mounts, and just this… “Perfect World” vibe. There is no exception in Forsaken World. The only key issue which bugged me is how the game keeps throwing discount bundles and offers at players shamelessly, to the point where it is close to harassment. There is also the Prestige system, which is actually the old-school VIP, a feature which certainly needs to be removed for any western launch. Stay tuned for news! … [Read more...] about – PC MMORPG dives into the mobile world for a second time
