Ryzom celebrated its 5th anniversary this week, which the devs celebrated by spawning this guy/gal and his/her three guards and trying to kill us all. We were victorious though, still running on the fumes from the mini-mek race we had enjoyed earlier.
I have a lot of frapsed video from the anniversary event which I’m trying to edit together, but Windows Movie Maker (which is the only editing software I have on this machine) refuses to play nice and keeps blanking out certain clips without giving a good reason for doing so. It annoys me to no end. Anyway, happy birthday Ryzom! Here’s for another five years!
I took a look through my screenshots folder and came across this picture from Warhammer Online. It’s from a public quest in the high elf area, probably tier 2 (can’t remember right now). I had completely forgotten about this fight, where you had to protect the ballistas from a horde of charging orcs, but seeing this pic made me resub straight away. Warhammer Online does have a lot of problems and some of the design choices Mythic made still don’t sit right with me. But there are times when the game shines and I’ve always been a big fan of the RvR – both in scenarios and open world fights. I can at least hope that the months since I cancelled my subscription to it have brought enough improvements to the game to keep me interested this time around.
Ribbicus the Conjurer and Frooglefruit the Berserker hitting it up at the Queen’s Colony (long live the Queen!). So far we’re only on our trial periods, but with characters like these what is there not to love? And yes, I decided to give EverQuest II another chance.
