Guild Wars 2 – RageQuit INC. to join the fray


RQClan.com

RageQuit’s here, as promised, and coming to Guild Wars 2. We’ve been laying low for a bit, hard at work on our new site and other developments, but we’re here now, and we’re ready to open recruitment.

If you don’t know who we are, that’s fine – what you should know is that we’ve been together over 10 years, under the same leadership, and we have an extremely strong track record. If you DO know just how brutal that track record is, don’t ruin the surprise.

Classically, RQ has been a full-PVP focused guild. A lot has changed throughout our GW2 preparations. PVE-based players are welcomed and encouraged to apply, Guild Wars 2 is a cooperative setting in which both PVP and PVE can help a guild to grow and flourish and become leaders of their server both at home and in The Mists – which is exactly our plan. For now, references in the guild are NOT required, everyone has an equal chance at acceptance based on your application and any other information you provide on it.

RageQuit’s been around for a long time, but even new members have the opportunity to climb the rank ladder quickly. We’ll need skilled generals for the Mist who are able to lead our clan and the rest of the server, we’ll need raid leaders to keep things scheduled and organized for the bosses back home, and dungeon experts to perfect the new 5-man dungeons.

If you’re interested, check us out. Application link is on the new site at RQClan.com – Any questions can be directed to our forums, I’ll be happy to answer them. We are already a member of an extremely powerful alliance, but I’ll be happy to hear from any other guilds.

SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online


http://sdgo.ogplanet.com/en/main.og

So I only recently found out about this game. Surprisingly by those really annoying ass ads posted on different websites. So of course being the gundam fan I am, I had to check it out to see what’s up. SD Gundam Capsule Fighter is a third person shooter game developed by Softmax and published by OGPlanet.

PvE is done in the style of missions both co-op and single player available. Single player however is completely unrewarding offering very little on completion and only wasting your units energy. with outweighs the cost of what you win from the mission. The missions also may come with a bit of story, or even a fight against enemies with the pilots of the series.

The PvP is arena style, where you can fight it off in normal battles of up to 6vs6, Boss battles, and of course the death matches of up to 8 players.

PvP also serves a purpose to show off how good you have been doing, with emblems. Currently there are only emblems for PvP, however it seems there will be more added in the future possibly. You achieve emblems by meeting certain conditions, such as winning a certain number of matches along with a certain rank of completion.

Along with doing PvP and Missions, you can do quests that ask you to do something specific like playing a certain amount of PvP matches, or completing a certain mission, and even completing the crappy single player mode. Doing these quests can reward you with different things such as points, blueprints (which I will get into a bit later), mobile suits, stickers, and even exp modules.

Quests are sorted out by your rank. You gain rank by completing missions and participating in PvP matches. Gain a certain amount of exp and you will rank up. Enabling you to proceed with more advanced quests. You can check your rank in your info menu, along with your unit information.

The UI is done really well and easily navigable. My Room is a space used to store your units, items, battleships, operators, and other items such as exp modules. The shop is where you can rent units or buy C rank units, blue prints, battleships, skills, decorations such as paint and stickers.

You are able to store up to 24 initially, however with astros (Ingame cash you get for real money) will allow you to expand it with more pages to fit more units.Here you can also make use of the factory. With the factory you are able to view your units stats, grow the unit (meaning using exp modules to give the unit exp). Next would be overcustom, which is used to level up your unit after it has reached custom level 2. Overcustomizing comes at a risk of failure which will reduce all of your achieved overcustom levels, sending you back to overcustom level one. Items like level protect prevent the loss of levels upon failure. Next would be the skill tab, where you are able to put your own skills onto a unit. After each mission or PvP match, it will consume that skill and you will have to replace it. The last two tabs are for customizing your units appearance with different colors with paint, or by throwing a stick on the unit.

The next tab is operators, which are your guides during missions. Some operators have special effects, but there is only one operator you can buy with ingame points, the rest all cost astros. Of course the voice acting for the operators will make your ears bleed. There was a way to alter this but OGplanet is stingy unlike the other version and took measures to prevent it.

The third tab is filled with battle items. These items are obtained through missions and are used to give your opponents side effects or even effects for yourself. Items like booster down will completely deplete an enemies booster gauge. While an item like Hide will give you invisibility so long as your unit isn’t moving.

The final tab will be your items such as the exp modules. Exp modules are used to give your unit exp. Some do not come charged meaning you must but mastery exp into them in order to use them. Mastery exp is gained through missions and PvP and serves no other purpose other than to charge the exp modules.

Next up is the games lovely capsule machine. The capsule machine is used to get new units at the cost of points and of course luck. You pick a capsule machine that has a mech that is to your liking, pick it, and hope you get what your after. There are many capsule machines filled with a large variety of mechs.

Lastly I bring us to the shop. The shop is used to obviously, buy a variety of items. The first (second) tab in the shop is full of mobile suits and mobile suit blueprints. Any rank higher than C can not be permanently bought from the shop, they can only be rented. Blueprints are used to make certain mechs. Some mechs can not be gotten from the capsule machine and as such must be made via blueprints. These blueprints can either be bought or gotten from missions. To make a mech from a blueprint, you first need to meet the requirements needed to make it. This includes having the proper units needed to combine as well as having them at the proper level.

Next up are battleships. I currently have no idea what battleships are for and until I get first hand info on it, I can’t comment on this. As far as I know it is used in the expert server.

The next tab is AID. Within the aid tab you can buy operators, battle items, skill parts, and misc items. I have already went over the others but things are a bit different in the misc tab. Here you can buy items like level protector which is used for over customizing. Items like slot expansion to give you more mobile suit pages, exp modules, or even a CM coin used for the capsule machine.

The last tab is for buying decorations. Decorations inclue paints and stickers used to alter the appearance of your mobile suit.

Note of update: Once I figure out how to screenshot while actually ingame, I will add screenshots of PvP and missions. As of right now, print screen doesn’t work ingame. I will also add some info on clans whenever I find myself one. Not gonna join some random for the sake of this. I will also add info on battleships when I reach that stage of the game.

Forsaken World/Fall Anime/Other Randoms


Random Halloween Miku, sure lets go with that.

As I’m a MMO hopper as of late since I can’t find a game worth of shit to satisfy me till Guild Wars 2 sexy release. I find myself once again on the prowl to another game. Of course this is a game RageQuit (I’ve hopped from guild to guild on games I’ve tried, but RQ is my home. <3) had it’s sight’s on, which is a Gaming Clan I belong to. So not to much of a shocker that I find myself going to it.

With the hilarity problem that happened with PWE, publishers for the NA/EU Forsaken world, I found myself not in the CB. If your up for an interesting read on how PWE scammed it’s player base, check all major gaming networks such as MMOsite, MMOABC, ect. Just look for something pertaining to certain guilds and their leaders getting instant access to the CB for his whole guild. The bastards go by the name of Legends and his alliance.

Anyway, I don’t really care that I didn’t get into the CB. *Brushes shoulders off*. So most of RQ has went into the Chinese Open Beta, in which lashens, (Guild leader of an alliance with RQ) has made a patch for the CN client, using the NA translations. Something which was meant to be just for RQ and cond, but was leaked by the spies that weasel their way into enemy guilds. None the less love lashens for that patch. <3. Sadly my usual IGN Remnant was taken, well in fact, all my usual game names were taken. I find it so strange to have to actually put thought into a name as I would with an MMO here, seems the chinese use more english than I assumed.

Well with that bit out of the way, I will be putting up my usual opinions in a week or two, just waiting for all my mains to hit that 5th episode mark before I say anything. So expect that in the coming weeks.

Also with Halloween just 4 days away, I have to figure out somewhere to go. Being in an appt complex, we’re usually hit as a major target for candy. Fucking kids. I can barely afford rent let alone candy for you! /sadface.

Identity theft – My, My, The stupidity of the world


Click to enlarge the stupidity of some humans.

Ordinarily identity theft is used for criminal purposes. However I found someone idiot enough to actually try an “be” me. (Quotation for the fact of it not being literal as it’s just a community face, probably done with no ill intentions but done, either way.) Stealing the name, avatars, and signature I worked my ass off to make, then passing it off as his own. I really wouldn’t give two shits if they used the name, but going as far as to become me is a story I will end.

Apparently some fuck from the gamecampus MMO community under the name of Wondergirls went so far as to pass himself off as me within a S4 leauge community. I must be one hell of an amazing person, YEA! But I will still not stand for that shit. Really though how did this person not expect to be caught. My name is carved in the google search engine for crying out loud.

This rant was brought to you by my anger. Have a fantastically shitty day.

To come


I’ve been rather busy the past month, with going back to class. Anyway, with the new anime season that started, I will be putting up my usual opinions in a couple of weeks. (Maining the second season of tegami bachi of course.) Furthmore upon it’s entering of open beta I will be putting up a little review for gamecampus’s (Yea wtf I though I hated them.) MMO legend of edda. I have been unable to play the closed beta due to it happening on my term break and heading back to my parents for a bit, and blah blah. However I had the pleasure of playing the games early access closed beta. I don’t know why I bother, once guild wars 2 is out, it will be bye, bye, to this shit called free to play.

Soul Master – Dropped


To start off, I was planning on writing a review for this game as it had peaked my interest and was looking to turn out nicely. I could not have been more wrong.

Soul master is not a game worth spending more than a few days on. The PvP gets very stale after awhile, not to mention hackers, which I will get into later when I start talking about the company. The PvE becomes very repetitive and after a certain part, becomes the same for every level. Now you think this is usual but comparing this to grind is more agonizing because exp to level and how much you get from the missions will cause the player to do the same missions 10 – 20+ times. This is a major flaw with the game, because levels cause quite a large imbalance in PvP, in a PvP specific game.

Now the company running the game is just murdering the game further. To start off the game was released as a complete bug fest. It is standard for a game in closed beta to have bugs, but the game was released as if it was not even tested for outside use. The game was simply horrible to try and play with these bugs. Now when a game is messed up like this, OB is usually set for a bit away. However this company set it to be released one week after the closed beta, in which they should have had a second CB with how bad it was. Of course however the open beta comes and a majority of the bugs are still present. (No one saw that coming did they.) It seems they wanted to release it to start raking in money as soon as possible or whatever the case is.

The second issue will be what kills most games and that would be the lovely cash shop. The GMs gave users the privilege to use the cash shop during CBT. The game kill alerts went off right there. Items in the cash shop included scrolls that could reduce the level needed for armor and the thing here is, it reduces said armor by 5 levels. Armor in this game alone is an imbalance due to it giving a pretty noticable boost per level. IE the level 5 armor is notably better to the level 1 armor. So of course an item released that could give a level 1 a (as to say) end game armor because he used scrolls to reduce it’s level, is simply absurd.

The third and final issue, is the lack of any defense on the game against hackers. I’m sure everyone knows the issues of rampant hackers, so I don’t really need to get into that failure.

There are many items that will cause unbalance and I’m willing to bet there will even be scrolls that may decrease construction time or even increase seed speed output. That’s if they aren’t already there. This game WILL become cash shop or gtfo. Those who will not use the cash shop will get royally fucked by those who do.

All in all, in my opinion. Avoid this game like the plague unless you enjoy these type of unbalances and an incompetent GM team that will screw it further.

Soul Master – Review Postponed


As it stands now, Soul Master run under the company GameCampus has been plagued with limitless bugs. It seems as if the game was released with no testing at all. Whether the game masters for the game were just playing rather than testing is left with a nice bold (?) As with this I have had many, many issues trying to play the game. So with that said I was unable to experience the game to give it a review.

Let’s give hope to seeing GameCampus cleaning up their act by the time they put the servers into OB.
