Hey everyone, I know a lot of people are having trouble accessing my blog these past two weeks. I’m trying to figure out what the problem is, but I’m having trouble with that. It suddenly happened out of nowhere when I haven’t touched any of the coding, etc. for the past two weeks so I’m pretty sure it’s not from me tinkering with the coding?? I know I keep mentioning I’m going to try a reinstalling wordpress again on my Twitter but I’m been really hesitant about it. I don’t know if I backed up correctly and if I’ll lose any of my stuff in the process. So if you’re experiencing any difficulty with my blog right now please hang tight ::nervous::.
My time lately has been dedicated to Diablo 3 with my friends LOL! We started on Friday night, I bet we’re going to be level 20 by the end of today or something HAHA. It’s so bad because once we get addicted to a game there’s really no stopping us. Our boyfriends are just probably facepalming themselves right now ::swirl::. I think most guys started playing it the day it came out so now that they’re over the game, we started playing ::^^::. I wasn’t going to play, honestly, because my brother told me it’s not my type of game. After playing it though I don’t see why he says that. It’s sort of like the 3D MMORPGs my friends and I play.
My friend and I bought it online and we were raging because after we killed the first significant boss (the Skeleton King) it said we have to pay since we were on Starter’s Edition. I was searching online and it said we might have to wait up to 72 hours before that disappears and we can go on playing the game. We were thinking we might as well have just went to the store to buy the physical copy instead ::GAHH::.
Found some people saying if we changed our passwords it’ll work. It did ::heart2::.
I think I’ve played a fair amount of MMORPGs:
MapleStory which became a game full of spoiled kids. You just can’t beat those people in the game when they’re full of cash shop stuff. I think it almost became a requirement to have something from the Cash Shop or else nobody really wants you in their party when you have nothing cool to offer.
La Tale. I still enjoy this came even though it’s 2D haha. Met a good friend on this game too!
Iris Online. First 3D MMORPG for me and my friends. I was hesitant to try because I only use my laptop. The desktop is used by my brother and rest of family. I wasn’t sure if my laptop could handle 3D games LOL. Initially I was kind of having a hard time with the camera angle. After just playing 2D games it was a bit weird. When I got used to it though I wished all 3D games had it. The problem with this game is that after a while the frequency of new quests drops dramatically. You’re left with the daily quests from your lower levels which barely give enough XP for your current level. That and grinding so it really kills the fun. I don’t even know how many levels we had to grind through after we hit about level 28.
Ragnarok. It’s weird how the games seem to be going up in quality and then we played Ragnarok LOL! The reason for that is because my besties all played this game back then and I guess it provided a nice memory for them. We played on a private server. It’s weird though because they let you move the camera but only barely. I was so used to being able to move the camera on IO that RO really irritated me when it came to this. We actually decided to play on the real game when they announced that it was F2P (Free to Play). We couldn’t handle the real game because it felt really boring (at least for me it was) so we stopped pretty early.
Dragon Nest. This was pretty fun because it was another ‘significant’ change in the games I played. Although I wasn’t that good at it, it was still interesting. Usually in these games you aim at the monster and just stay in place pretty much while your character kills the monster. This one you have a more control. You’re expected to be able to dodge the monsters’ attacks. You’re expected to know what attacks to use to get the best combos and kill the monster most efficiently. You’re expected to do more than just click on a monster and press random attacks. It does get a bit repetitive after too because you’re expected to go through the same dungeons a couple times although at different difficulties. On top of that the level cap was pretty low so almost everyone could reach it in a relatively small amount of time. It became sort of a race for people to get to max level so they can just farm for rare items to either sell back out for lots of gold or make their armour godly. Jobs are also gender-locked on this game.
Diablo 3. I haven’t played the other ones, but I have to say, my friend and I are not really THAT impressed for a game that costs $60! I was surprised when I couldn’t change the camera angle on this aside from pressing Z to zoom into my character ::blink::. There’s no customization for the character really. I guess because it’s mainly a game for guys it’s not a huge factor, but come on LOL! It was interesting how you have only two main attacks on this game. I’m so used to having a bunch to switch between. I guess the trade-off was the cool down time on those attacks in other games.
Also, there’s something about this game that I don’t really enjoy which is clicking to walk. I’m guessing because you can’t change your camera angle, there’s no need to use the keyboard to walk. The only gave that made me do that was Ragnarok and I was complaining the whole time. I’m so used to using WASD to move I keep pressing it during gameplay.
I always play archers/mages in games and for some reason they’re always the nicer looking female characters LOL. It’s bad when it’s like that because it makes my bestie Ashleigh want to play since she picks characters based on looks HAHA. Her playing style learns more to a tank, but tanks are usually real butch looking. Her worst nightmare LOL. Okay I’ll stop all this dorky game talk.
Just wanted to mention that my friends made a blog. Well, Ashleigh always ran a tumblr, but she has decided to make a real blog so please check hers out! Her domain name used to be linked to her tumblr, but it now goes to her personal blog. She updates frequently! My friend Connie also made one, but she doesn’t update frequently LOL. Check out her blog anyway ::^^::.
