CrowFall Skills and Advancement revealed!

By Drakkyn on January 6, 2016

CF has a different take on skills and attributes. I am very intrigued with the way they plan to handle your in game characters. .

Having an inventory item that can represent your in game form is very nice twist . I just hope that they can pull this idea off.

Grim Dawn Nears Completion! (or How I have come to love the grind)

By Drakkyn on December 1, 2015

Grim Dawn just released build 28 to the wild which added the last dungeon in Act 4 and the only piece remaining is the end boss battle. This game is well worth the price of entry and I am dividing my time between this and PoE .

Fallout 4 and Star Wars BattleFront were also released last week and I have been playing a butt load of BF . It captured the star wars feel … even though game play may not be varied enough for hardcore shooter fans, for a casual shooter player , it hit my fix just right.

Fallout 4 is a great entry in the series , but it is a typical Bethsoft faire with some launch day issues and some systems that seem kind of bland. Thankfully the mod kit is being released soon so I would just advice everyone to wait and let the mods develop to help enhance the game.

Crowfall ! I need you now!

By Drakkyn on November 6, 2015

I gaze across the landscape of upcoming games and I am severely saddened by the outlook. The latest rash of games are just other editions of their predecessors with a bit more shine and a bigger release number. When I am reviewing my Steam queue, I find myself mostly just clicking on NOT INTERESTED.

I still log hours into Grim Dawn, Path of Exile, Card Hunter, and I have been dabbling with Shroud of Avatar a bit .

Grim Dawn just released build 28 and it included the new Shaman class . I really like where this game is headed and I am excited to see what they do with their multiplayer. POE is still the best ARPG out there right now. It is free as well.

Shroud of the Avatar is looking to be a good contender for the MMO audience. I try not to spend too much time with each build they release because it changes so much between releases right now and there are wipes after each release.

Fallout4 and Stars Wars battle front are coming up soon and I hope they are ok . I have been trying not to read articles or watch the teaser vids because I don’t want to be disappointed if it sucks, like that Sword Coast turd.

Happy Gaming!

Happy New Year ?

By Drakkyn on March 12, 2015

I am a bit late, but that’s life when 2 daughters are dragging me all over the place.

I took a little break from MMOs and online gaming in general since that ArcheAge fiasco. Now that I am no longer hot under the collar , I have been looking at some new properties out on the horizon. Crowfall ( looks great and I backed it on kickstarter . I hope the team doesn’t disappoint, but they know they have niche market they are targeting so hopefully they can fill the void.

I have also been playing some Path of Exile and Grim Dawn. PoE ( is still the best FREE game I have ever played and the company did the cash shop the right way. Grinding Gear Games hit a home run with this. Grim Dawn ( is still in Early Access phases, but it plays very well . The look and feel of their game world is robust and I am digging their take on the classes and skills I am currently running this and not dying every second. The death penalties are xp based and you have a chance to recover lost xp after dying. Very helpful in those long drawn out boss fights.

If you have time give Grim Dawn a look.

Fuck you HackerShield and Fuck you ArcheAge

By Drakkyn on September 14, 2014

So I had purchased a founders pack of ArcheAge to give it a try , unfortunately, AA’s antibot/hackz software HackerShield keeps crashing me to the desktop. I tried everything on their list of “fixes” but most of them involve uninstalling/reinstalling and turning off services. No game should require this much prep work . Eve, Neverwinter , ShadowBane and 50 other MMOs run just fine on my PC, ArcheAge being the exception.

So I found a fix for hackershield. Uninstall!

Yep, no more worrying about crashing to the desktop. I uninstalled the piece of shit and now I am going to have a beer or three and try to forget I wasted two days on this fucking game.

/end rant
