Phoenix Project reached the Kickstarter goal
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 October 2013, 2:37 pm
Just visited the Kickstarter page for the Phoenix Project/City of Titans and they have already reached their goal of $320000, with 27 days left of their Kickstarter campaign…At the time of writing they are $10000 past their goal and I have no doubt they will get much more than that. Congratulations to the Missing Worlds […]


Phoenix Project starting kickstarter in overdrive
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 October 2013, 4:27 pm
The Phoenix Project is one of the projects that started after City of Heroes closed down, with the goal to make a spiritual successor to the beloved game. A company called Missing Worlds Media was formed and many people from the City of Heroes community has offered their services to help out with the project. […]


Half marathon done
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 September 2013, 10:58 am
Last year, as part of my general improvement of well-being and an old annoyance, I ran 10 km in less than 50 minutes. When I completed that part last year I decided to set up a new goal, this time it was to complete the Stockholm Half-marathon (21.1 km) in 2013. I also set up […]


Running out of steam
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 September 2013, 4:47 pm
Last autumn/winter stumbled upon the closed beta of a niftly online RPG/MMO-type game, City of Steam.  I started to play the game in the closed beta weekends, which was pretty fun. I think they game had some issues, but the level of interaction and feedback between the developers and the community was outstanding. Primarily for […]


Anarchy Online reaching beta stage with new engine
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 September 2013, 6:26 pm
In a post in the Anarchy Online forums, Nusquam (a.k.a. Joel Bylos) posted that closed beta test will start of the new graphics engine for Anarchy Online, as well as the new starter experience. Those with an account can login and register for the beta. If/when the player is selected for beta testing, they will […]


Intermission
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 September 2013, 4:30 pm
I have not been blogging in the past 3+ weeks, which is simply because there has been other matters – more work to handle before travelling abroad and then travelling abroad. Just returned home from a 2 week trip to California and Silicon Valley. The first week was a road trip with a few colleagues, […]


Extra reward weekend in Firefall
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 August 2013, 7:46 pm
This weekend is a double Crystite weekend in Firefall, starting today Friday. More details can be found on the campaign page here. Contrary to many MMOs, Firefall does not do double XP and instead double Crystite, the in-game currency. That does make sense, since there is not really any XP gating in terms of content […]


Travelling in Firefall – Glider
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 August 2013, 4:49 pm
There are a few different ways to travel around in Firefall – running, jumping with jumpjets, going by dropship, LGV (motorbike) – and the glider. The glider is pretty neat travel option, you simply jump from a high spot and just glide through the air. The video clip below is one jump I made from […]


Age of Conan – The XII
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 August 2013, 4:21 pm
Stumbled upon this fan-made trailer for Age of Conan, showcasing the 12 classes in the game, by Henryx. Incredibly well made! Filed under: Age of Conan


Firefall music
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2013, 6:10 pm
I thought I would make a post with some of the music scores from Firefall. I like the sound effects and music scores in general and some are really nice to listen to. Below are a couple of samples collected through YouTube postings that people have made. Thanks to Mulgorify, Arzaker and Emabulator for their posts. […]


The Conan letter of July
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2013, 4:35 pm
Funcom has posted the Game Director’s letter for July for Age of Conan now (July 31st). The TL;DR version is “work is on-going, more to come later”. There will likely be server merges for the single server tech in August. Some Unchained version of old dungeons will be released soon and the rest in the […]


Taking it nice and easy in New Eden
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 July 2013, 3:20 pm
Taking it nice and easy, Boss? This is a comment I get from time to time my operator Aero in Firefall when I login, after she first has commented that I haven’t been around for a while. Everyone seems to have an opinion about her. She will get repetitive after  while, but so far I […]


Jumping into Firefall
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2013, 5:52 pm
Firefall is a game I did not expect to like, but I have ended up playing it more than I planned or should spend on it this past week. And I do enjoy it. It is not without its flaws, but there seems to be a solid foundation. Currently the game is in an “open […]


The third Khitan and AA points
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2013, 2:24 pm
Tomorrow on July 19th Funcom is going to give an additional 40 AA (alternate advancement) points to all level 80 characters which belong to active subscribers. They did this also on May 30th, but instead of only level 80 characters receiving it all characters belonging to active subscribers received. That was a nice bonus, but […]


The perfect annoyance
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2013, 2:54 pm
Most of the time I try to stay positive in my posts, not go on on a rant and spit venom about various things I do not like. Most of the time. Back when Cryptic Studios was bought by Perfect World Entertainment from Atari I was quite positive about it – it seemed that PWE […]


Hill Walking
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2013, 2:10 pm
Last week was a week with no gaming and for the most part disconnected from the normal world – I was on a one week holiday in Scotland to do some hill walking/hiking. This was my first time in Scotland ever and also the first time doing some serious highland walking, rather than somewhat flat […]


The bear from Khitai and Black Ring Citadel
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 July 2013, 3:13 pm
My Khitan bear shaman, Senken, has now returned to Khitai. I.e. he has now reached level 80 and the draw of the home land has brought him back to the Northern Grasslands. Leveling up a bear shaman was quite fun – same as Herald of Xotli the bear shaman does not fit unto the usual […]


The voice of Joel – Age of Conan
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 June 2013, 4:41 pm
In May, Funcom started a new community<->developer exchange int he forums called Your Voice. In a forum thread players post questions they would like answered, a new thread for each month. Funcom would then answer 5 of these questions each month. The answers for May were a bit delayed; most likely because Joel Bylos became […]


Adventures in Khitai
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 June 2013, 5:46 am
In the past few weeks my Herald of Xotli, Zelmira, have been adventuring a bit in Khitai. Around the time of the 5th year anniversary she reached level 80. Shortly after that she started to travel a bit in Khitai. Entering Khitai Khitai is part of the Rise of the Godslayer expansion for Age of […]


A Khitan final ding
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 June 2013, 5:55 pm
Today Senmei, my demonologist, reached max level 80 in Age of Conan. As a Khitan, she has now headed off to see her old home country again, after traveling around in Hyboria for around 40 levels. From my experience with my first level 80, Zelmira, I nudged Senmei a bit at various stages a bit […]


The Grim Grey God
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 May 2013, 8:15 pm
About 10 days ago I reached level 80 wuth my Herald of Xotli, but it was not until today I decided to complete my level 80 Destiny question mission. This started off with chatting with Kalanthes in Kheshatta, doing some errands. After that it was time for the real mission, to defeat the Grim Grey […]


A generous surprise
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 May 2013, 11:56 am
In a previous post I wrote about that Funcom decided to give all players with level 80 characters an additional 40 AA points (expertise points) this week and another 40 AA points 50 days later. What I and I think many with me assumed, was that every level 80 character would get 40 AA points […]


Anniversary AA bonus
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 May 2013, 3:59 pm
When the 5th anniversary of Age of Conan started Funcom announced that they made some improvements to the premium membership program – members will get AA points (alternate advancement) everytime a character levels. Compared to what was before, where characters would get maybe a couple of points at most before reaching level 80, if they […]


More monster bash
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 May 2013, 5:53 pm
After a long day helping my nephew study for a physics exam, I jumped into Age of Conan again this evening for a bit of monster hunting.  The new monster for today was a Leviathus Spawn, which could spawn either in Dragon’s Spire area or in Khopshef province, near Black Castle. Being more familiar with […]


Monster bash
Posted by A ding world [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 May 2013, 5:34 pm
The 5th anniversary of Age of Conan is on-going right now – which includes the new feature of major monster attacks in various places in Hyboria. It is pretty fun and is increasing in activity and intensity each day. The whole event is ongoing for 5 days, started on Thursday the 23rd. During the first day one […]
