Would You Play Your Favorite MMO Without Its IP?

Would You Play Your Favorite MMO Without Its IP?

About a week ago, Massively OP posed a question to their staff and readers inspired by a post they saw on Reddit. The question was a simple one, one you can probably guess if you looked at the title of this post at all, but it’s an interesting question nonetheless: Would you play your favorite MMO without its IP attached to it? While I missed the initial post when Massively OP made it, it became a topic of some discussion…

My Time in New World’s Open Beta

My Time in New World’s Open Beta

In the corners of the internet that I’ve been lurking in, it’s been a while since I’ve seen people hyped for a new MMO. So when Amazon Games’ New World announced an open beta event for this past weekend, I saw a good number of people excited about it. I, on the other hand, was a bit more skeptical. I will admit that a lot of my own skepticism about the game is tied to the company itself. When I think…

From the Beginning…

From the Beginning…

I’ve been playing and livestreaming The Elder Scrolls Online consistently since 2018. Players who had been playing the game longer than I had were eagerly anticipating the release of the next expansion at the time, Summerset. I, on the other hand, was still exploring Morrowind. Since then, I’ve played through the majority of the content that ESO has to offer players. I’ve met and fallen in love with so many NPCs on my Vestige’s journey across Tamriel, saving it again…

Why I Don’t Like the Imperial City

Why I Don’t Like the Imperial City

This Thursday (August 26, 2021) marks the start of The Elder Scrolls Online‘s Year One Celebration. It’s an event that’s meant to encourage players to revisit zones and DLC content that was released in the first year of ESO‘s operation, specifically Wrothgar, Craglorn, and Imperial City. During this event, players can acquire an abundance of resources, style pages, and, of course, event tickets that can be exchanged for a variety of goods from our beloved Impresario. By itself, all of…

Modding Elder Scrolls Online

Modding Elder Scrolls Online

Today’s post might be a bit of a taboo topic in the gaming world, especially since I know that some developers of massively multiplayer online roleplaying games frown upon what I’m about to talk about. However, it’s Developer Appreciation Week for Blaugust 2021, and while I know a lot of people are going to take this week to talk about game developers, I also think it’s important to call attention to the mods that we may utilize in the course…

The Book of Travels: A Tiny Multiplayer Online Game?

The Book of Travels: A Tiny Multiplayer Online Game?

Book of Travels is a game that has been on my radar ever since I first heard about the Kickstarter that launched in October 2019. Created by Might and Delight (creators of Shelter and Meadow), Book of Travels is a tiny multiplayer online RPG with roleplay elements built into it from character creation and a unique way of communicating with other players. And I would be lying if I tried to convince you all that I wasn’t excited about this…

Musings on Blackwood

Musings on Blackwood

Y’all, I tried. I tried so hard to keep the posts I came up with for Blaugust this week to say on theme. However, when I finished the main story quest of The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood, the most recent expansion for ESO, any plan I theoretically had about staying on topic went right out the window, especially when I realized what the plot was leaving us with. When we reach this point in a new expansion’s life, I often…

My History as a Healer in MMOs

My History as a Healer in MMOs

Most people who have watched me stream long enough or who may know me from MMORPGs such as Final Fantasy XIV will know that I am a healer. I am, perhaps, one of the saltier healers in existence, especially when people always move out of range right as my cast bar is about to finish so I can actually heal them or they move out of line of sight (very important for healers), but I am a healer nonetheless. That…

The Games That Shaped Me

The Games That Shaped Me

For those of us who play video games, we all have genres or kinds of games that we like. Console, PC, handheld… doesn’t matter. These are the games that have never left us for one reason or the other. The games that have become our favorites over time. Games that we just keep coming back to because we love them or there’s a nostalgia factor that accompanies them. However, a question keeps getting passed around various gaming spaces over the…
