Gotham: The Show: The Random Review.

hmmm

hmmm

So its been two episodes and so far I am not entirely sure how I feel about the show. It’s obvious we knew it wouldn’t really cut out because of the factor of Batman. This almost seems like a try for what was Smallville but when we really think about it they went and focused on the wrong guy. Gordon.

The shows baseline and build is decent so far even with the focus but in all honesty how long will it keep people interested? We had random appearances by the Joker and the Riddler. Along with a newly made Catwoman. Even got Penguin running around.  I will give the show more time and see how this all goes. Its missing the hero factor of the show even though Gordon is technically suppose to be that guy it really doesn’t feel right because some of us have that mindset for batman one way or another. Anyways thats my two cents in this randomness. Shows usually dont get me til maybe 5 episodes in but we shall see how this all plays out.

MMORPG and games alike: The Community. My experience.

Hello everyone its been some time but I feel like a blog, Ive been stuck on Destiny and FFXIV with all the randomness going on in life. I would like to start off saying that I won’t really be doing the reviews I usually do and just go about with experiences and randomness i go through in Destiny and FFXIV and WOW when they release the new expansion. So if you want to continue reading my randomness thanks for your support.

Been in this game since alpha...

Been in this game since alpha…

I wanted to start off with WOW because this is basically the bread and butter for MMOS this is the baseline. This is where all the MMOS want to be… and I know haters are lurking on this blog but this is my opinion about the game. The experiences I’ve gotten from this game are priceless when it comes to the gamer. From raising 5 guilds on my own 1 actually carrying 100 members always online with a total of 600+ members running around. I’ve lead raid groups into the lair of the Lich King and ended him with ease. Progression and Farm groups going through it all. After a bit WOW was sorta on and off and I decided to take a time out and try other games. Ive been through Diablo 3. Guild Wars 1 and 2, SWTOR, FFXIV, and the list goes on and on with free mmorpgs and random p2p types like ESO. My friend and I had this saying about wow. Its the girlfriend you always run back to. You think you want someone else but you always come crawling back for her because she does it right, she always has. WOW is pretty much that, the girl nextdoor the high school sweet heart. The community in WOW usually depended on two things, PVE Servers or PVP. I grew up in a PVP server in the years I’ve played WOW, Hell I actually got 18 years of PVE and PVP randomness starting off with Diablo 1.  So many ears :D in my inventory. I basically molded my Online Persona through PVP though. I’ve had pvp fights in the world where I was lvl 68 and took down a lvl 70 arena geared warrior with my hunter. It was beautiful. My raid experience was another issue entirely. I don’t know how many times i’ve been called to be raid lead off the top of my head but it was 1 too many even when It wasn’t my guild or group. It was always something I would look for. I always wanted to be on that leadership role getting things together and it was amazing. Nowadays I tend to just like to sit and be apart of the group and see what happens.

Lets see how this goes

Lets see how this goes

This game has been a huge iffy for me. Its been good at times and just bland at other points. Right now its the game thats holding me down and see how it all goes with the community that is presented to. Community is def the topic of discussion with this one. It seems to me as I progress more and more that this game is very fashion base and so much people bitching over retardedness. If i really had to review this game off the bat it would honestly get 6-7 out of 10 because the game gets bland real quick and the community is party responsible for it. I must have lucked out when I was in WOW because the people i delt with in my progression raiding new two rules in my group. 1 Its just a game and 2…. Progress over Kill.

It’s just a game is basically tuning to the fact that even though my progression groups were serious about completely content it never left their minds that this is just a game. I find it amusing when people get stressed out over the factor of a game and I honestly think when people get to that level they need to log off. A game is a tool to enjoy, its entertainment. It seems that alot of people I’ve met through duty finders and raid groups and even pub groups take this game way to serious compared to the WOW people ive been around. People have gotten into fights over petty randomness because of the game which doesn’t make sense to me. I tend to grab the popcorn and enjoy their miseries.

Progress over Kill is something that really needs to be said over and over for some people in FFXIV. You got a boss that has 3 phases and You know that the content is fairly new but for some reason you expect the kill to happen that night. That mentality ruins a group quickly. Usually raid leads who run with this mentality fail this part along with rule 1 in my guidelines. Before you know it people are arguing and are stressed. My thing is I rather see that I got from 90% to 60% for the week and I am happy because I know in time we will be able to clear it but not just yet. You gotta get the small stuff out the way first before goin all out. No teacher shows a whole dance routine off the bat and expects you to do it right off the jump. Makes no sense so why should leaders have this same mentality.

This game also has a huge fashion sense, I feel like its Ru Paul’s Drag Race all over again because every other friend of mine has a girl character and is getting them real pretty up. Some use the excuse of I don’t wanna stare at a male all day but my psychology in all this tells me that they have to express their femme side.

Over all the game has been pretty decent but end game seems to be a bit basic. Also the game only came out a year ago and we got too many hot head elitist running around yet create the same mistakes that they yell at others for.

This is almost looking promising

This is almost looking promising

Destiny is the new kid on the block but they don’t want to be called MMORPG. It has alot of RPG materials but not MMO. So we will stick with Online FPS RPG lol. This game is great because I love FPS games and for it to perfect RPG elements into unlike the fail in borderlands imo. Though alot of the destiny heads in the community don’t come from WOW or FFXIV or any other RPGs… they come from COD… so many from COD which is not a good look. Its like telling a jock to learn trigonometry.  Ok so thats exaggerating but I’ve delt with some people recently that basically proved my point. Had a weekly strike that needed to be done. At the time I had the lvl and I think the other guy did but someone in the party was low for the strike, I didn’t know about the 10% dmg reduction that would give us hell later on. The fights lasted damn near forever and was crazy at times but we got through most of em cept the last boss. I started to realize that the boss started to show its mechanics. Boss goes wild attacks and draws back and adds. rince and repeat. i tried to explain to the guys that factor but their mind set was focused on we can kill him just ignore the adds. MMORPG Mechanics Rule…231298b section A291.   You never ignore adds unless you are over geared for the situation and adds disappear on boss defeat.  >_> sorta made some of it up but its common sense for people who have been playing mmorpgs all their life. I tried to explain and was ignored…. we died over and over again i tried to take the adds myself and even tried to get them to focus fire from a certain side but people wanted to be heroes and run across the open plain with all the shooting going on. Eventually one of them gave up and we all just gave in. I really hope these people understand the concept of this game or its going to be rough for them when raid time comes in lol Over all the community for this game is lacking and the social build for it is also lacking hopin that in time it will get better.

This basically concludes my random rant so enjoy

I didn’t choose the tank life… the tank life chose me

paladin_tank

Something about having a shield makes me feel like a Leader…

Ok so honestly. I chose the tank life. Just like the way the title came out on top. This post is basically related to something I read earlier today about tanks called 7 Reasons you should be nicer to tanks and people in general credit to MadMacallan. Link Here .

So I read through the whole thing and notice some things I would like to point out and my views about the whole article and actual experiences I’ve had as a tank. Everyone has their opinions when it comes down to tanks and dps and heals. I like when people say Tanks are meat shields or DPS is easily replaceable ( this one I said at times but its hard to get real good dps lol ) and Healers are for girls.

l2tank3

Instant Queue again?! goodness I wonder why?

I chose the tank life for a couple of reasons. I love being in charge at times and also love being a rarity when it comes to grouping. For example as you see in this pic in WOW Tanks and some times Healers get rewarded for being there when needed. The tank nation is almost like the USMC the few the proud the tanks… Its a rough life because of all the randomness we got to deal with. We are the first ones in and we gotta make sure we got a tough head on our shoulders because one mistake can cost the whole raid or dungeon. I find this funny because it seems that tanks got it rough. I find it easier to deal as oppose to the other classes imo. I am actually suprised not many people are tanks. For this I love it. Love being messaged randomly “hey can you tank this for me” Or we need you for a raid because apparently everyone is a hunter.

I also love that when tank gear drops… Guess where that goes. Mine Mine Mine. I don’t have to worry about sharing my gear with a warlock who needs on spirit gear for a priest. Always party up with clothies though ;D. I also love being the one that everyone depends on because in all honesty lets put this out there. I am a total A-hole. If you get smart with me over bs best believe I will find it in my interest to make your life miserable even if its a video game. You will get kicked out of group if you want to play retarded. A pet peeve I have is the guy who comes into the game while I am tanking and for some reason dies randomly because of what ever reason… Lets say I wasn’t holding that aggro down…. OOOPS guy dies and curses me out because I couldn’t hold aggro. That guy I don’t appreciate much in my group. I really don’t need negativity in my group besides I won’t be waiting 40 minutes for another dungeon so I can leave or just kick that individual. Usually that individual gets kicked lol.

ARR_Paladn

I’ve played tank in so many games. World of Warcraft, FFXIV, SWTOR, Eden Eternal, Guild Wars, the list goes on and on. Even games that don’t have traditional tanks but a guy with a sword and shield I was in there. IE Diablo and Ragnarok. I’ve always went for the raid lead or the leader of the group no matter what it was I loved leading everyone into the randomness if I knew what was going on. I recently started up on FFXIV tanking and I gotta say its a bit slow but I love it. I was a bit iffy on tanking in that game so i stuck to doing just quest and some fates because I didn’t want to piss the PROS off with my epic tanking skills. After a bit I was told that dungeon running was a great way to get my experience going and to max out so I had to just eat it up and head out and deal with angry nerds if I mess up. My friend told me basically you will only learn way one and thats actually doing the whole thing. While DPS can get away with an attack dummy to learn their rotation… You can’t tank attack dummies… So guess where you practice… right in the field. Eventually I got my Tank like ego back and Even if I mess up I could care less I will keep going because I already know I don’t have to wait in a 40 minute que. So if dps or healers want to leave because my tanking isn’t up to the standard. Leave lol I am not the one standing in queue for 40 minutes. I usually get a replacement asap. I do however feel for the rest when it comes down to it.

Everyone has a part to play in the game called life

Everyone has a part to play in the game called life

You have what you call the holy trinity. Tank Heals DPS.  Lets be real from the beginning of the fight you need all 3 to get things done. You need that tank to mitigate the damage. You need that DPS to pull the health down of the boss or mobs you are fighting. You need the heals to be focused on the tank and if splash damage occurs give the occasional heal off to a dps. No one is perfect at their job. I really don’t care how many hours you put into the game or what spec are you and what gear you came in with. Everyone will have that day where they make that one mistake. I as a tank have had a few here and there. I remember days in WOW when tanking was so serious for a dungeon that if I dropped aggro on a mob it would one slap healers. Hilarious but dangerous. I’ve even had moments where as DPS i gotta keep moving around because fire pits would emerge from the ground so I had to be ready to spring out of there when it happens. Healer… well I’ve played healer. I honestly feel that people who play healer have it rough because its not fun imo and its not all that easy at times either depending on the situation. It was never really easy for me because I don’t like focusing on peoples health bars. I like to be in the action. I could almost understand why my friend would have to go for a smoke break after healing shadowfang keep with that one boss who nukes everyones health in one shot. Everyone is important in their own way here and there and everyone should be respected regardless. It is sad that in a video game people get so upset to flip out over a wipe or two. Reminds me of the people I work with. Always getting angry at passengers as if these passengers fly everyday. News flash they don’t and the same way it comes down to the gamers. Not everyone is on the game as much as these people who rage quit because people don’t know the fight. Some people actually have lives outside of the game to be taking a game to serious. I got a fiance and I work most of the day lol. Being a tank is great because I get into a dungeon asap or raid. I don’t like wasting time but at the same time I don’t like rushing through a dungeon because someone has to go somewhere. I actually like to learn the fight first hand. A youtube video won’t really help all that much. Experience is what helps.

 

The future holds great suprises.

The future holds great suprises.

So the morale of my rant is basically like the other guy said, Treat people with respect. Because in the end I might be your tank and instead of instant queue with me. You might see an insta kick. Also try new things guys. Its great to have DPS characters but also have a healer or tank on hand just incase because in all honesty its best to be versatile in gaming. It really is. In WOW I would have a paladin because he can heal tank and dps. So I was ready. Anyways thanks for reading my randomness ;D tell your friends about me

No Crossover Between DC Movies and Shows.

So I was doing my early morning browsing and ran into this article

http://www.newsarama.com/21628-no-crossover-between-dc-comics-tv-and-dc-movie-series-says-chief-creative-officer.html

Yes I know I am being very random at this point I never really post this type of article but I really got something to say about this and curious on what others think about this situation. I really feel that with out the crossing of these heroes and having to add new ones to get their point across with out using the ones set in play for the shows it gets all retarded in such a way. For me I really do appreciate the crossovers from time to time in a show or movie to show.

BuffyAngel

Who remembers Buffy the Vampire slayer? Even though in a sense it was cheesing imo it was a decent show and I really enjoyed it but what really made it so much better was when one of the major characters from the show left and made a spin off show called Angel which was also a crossover show and from time to time they would be in each others show making some events a bit more interesting on how they happened. This was crossover done right imo. Some other shows actually do it still today like Vampire Diaries with the originals.

no-arrow-dc-movies

I really wish the chief would really look over the details and get this going because this is a huge opportunity to get DC Universe really on the map when it comes to shows and movies. IMO they are already beating Marvel when it comes to shows. With some crossover and randomness between movie and shows it would really help them out. Guess we might never know how this would really play out though… thats my 2 cents.

Destiny Beta so far…

image

So far the game has been great but I had a few issues nothing game changing or dramatic. Just a pet peeve or two that wouldn’t make sense. The roll out of the game was a bit bumpy with it taking people some time to access the files and beta codes due to traffic. Opening was at 1 pm estI was able to start downloading at 1:20 pm est. By 4 pm I was able to play and enjoy the randomness.

James and Kev just signed in. Let's go!

Things got a lot better once my friends signed in and ready to go! I was already level 5 and they started new so I tagged along anyways. Tons of fun to be had when playing with others compared to playing on your own. Was wondering if people we would run into had mics on because we would only hear each other. Would be nice to have a random encounter and conversation with a fellow player.

I was disappointed when we took on the last mission and it cut me off at lvl 8 again like the alpha. For some reason many of us were lead to believe that we would be able to reach lvl 20 and go about more contenr this time around. We got the more content part of things but level remains the same and kinda killed it a bit for me. I give them props on the fact that random events happen from time to time while playing through the beta. I can honestly say overall this is a great game and your not in the right state of mind if you do not want to try this game out… from traits of call of duty and halo both games that has great reputations… and not even considering Destiny… you will be missing out.
