TSW: The Darkness Comes
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 February 2014, 10:47 am
So you might have heard that something big is about to happen in The Secret World. Last week’s Game Director Letter teased the next stage of The Whispering Tide event, the final phase before the big Tokyo patch. And yesterday afternoon, the last canister finally went away, opening up the portal for the Flappy fight, […]


Elder Scrolls Online Impressions: Intro – Are You Going To Play?
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 February 2014, 1:38 pm
So you might have heard, the NDA for The Elder Scrolls Online has been finally lifted…up to a point. I’m still not allowed to share higher level experiences in the PTS (though that’s okay, I haven’t gotten too far in that anyway) but it’s nice to be able to talk about my impressions. I don’t […]


TSW Screenshots: New York, New York
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 February 2014, 9:33 am
You’ll have to pardon the wall of pictures, but after fighting Flappy last night our Monday Secret World group decided to jump into the New York raid just for the hell of it. Of course, we were only seven people and knew we had no chance of success, but none of us are against simply […]


Elder Scrolls Online Impressions: Characters
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 February 2014, 10:47 am
Inspired by some of the comments on my last Elder Scrolls Online post, I’ve decided to talk about my experiences with different classes in the game. I think I’ve mentioned before how I wasn’t initially that impressed by the game in this regard, though that definitely changed as I progressed through beta and leveled more […]


Battle Bards Episode 22: Guild Wars
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 March 2014, 9:02 am
I know it’s been a while, but you can’t keep the Battle Bards away! We are back with a new episode, this time featuring the songs of Guild Wars. That’s right, we’re talking Guild Wars the First, since we’ve already covered the soundtrack of Guild Wars 2 in one of our past shows. Join us […]

TSW: Upstairs! Lobby! Out Back!
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 February 2014, 11:45 am
My thanks to TenTentacles for the lovely screenshot above, because I was honestly too busy running around the castle like a headless chicken to remember to take any. A recent update to The Secret World brought some changes to scenarios, and we decided to take a break from Nightmares this week to try them out. […]


Battle Bards Episode 21: Tunes That Give You The Feels
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 February 2014, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up and ready for your listening pleasure! This week, Syp, Syl and I feature the tunes from MMOs that move us. The original name for this show’s theme is “Moving” but that didn’t seem quite a adequate as description. I didn’t want folks to think these are the […]


TSW: Nightmare Darkness War
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 January 2014, 11:29 am
Wait, what’s this? A Secret World post on a Friday? Surprise! Yesterday, a few of my guildies and I put together an impromptu TSW night, to try our hand at another Nightmare. Thanks to the tips and advice from helpful commenters in my last post, we had a better idea of which dungeon to do. […]


TSW: Nightmare Progression
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 January 2014, 12:59 pm
Our Secret World Monday group has reached a milestone, with all of us having gotten attuned for Nightmare dungeons…which means that now everyone can experience the pleasure of getting their clocks cleaned again and again by the sea monsters in Polaris. After a couple weeks break, I wish I could report that we finally cleared […]


Battle Bards Episode 20: Flyff
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 January 2014, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! What the flyff is Flyff, you ask? It’s the theme of our latest show – Fly For Fun! Seriously, though, you’ll have to ask Syl. Syp and I are just along for the ride, or uh, flight. LISTEN NOW Episode 20 show notes Introduction (including “Title Screen” […]


SWTOR: I Can’t Shake Him!
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 December 2013, 10:41 am
Galactic Starfighter went live on Star Wars: The Old Republic this week, and it has been…quite interesting. I was invited into the beta but didn’t really get the chance to check it out, so for all intents and purposes this was really my first exposure. I got to play a little bit of the content […]


Battle Bards 17: Opening Zones
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 December 2013, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! This week, Syp, Syl and I think back to our first steps in an MMO — and the music that will forever be linked to our experiences in a game’s opening areas. Yep, the theme for the week is “Starter Zones”, so come along and join us […]


Battle Bards 18: Vanguard
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 December 2013, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! For our final show of 2013, Syp, Syl and I will be singing the saga of heroes.  If that’s too vague, we’ll just be up-front.  The theme’s Vanguard! LISTEN NOW! Episode 18 show notes Introduction (including “Main Theme”) “Brightwood Dells” “Celestial Hills” “Steppes of the Sunset” “Grotto […]


The Secret World: Krampusnacht And End Of Days
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 January 2014, 1:47 pm
Happy new year, from your friendly neighborhood MMOGC! Hope everyone’s holiday season was filled with much love and joy and gaming. The last few weeks have been conspicuously devoid of posts about The Secret World Mondays, though I have indeed kept playing even through the craziness of the holidays. In fact, out of all the […]


Battle Bards 19: Dead MMOs
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 January 2014, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! We’re starting off a brand new year of the show with the theme of…dead MMOs. Hey, I thought it was weird too, celebrating beginnings with endings, but this is what the overlords willed. In any case, even as Syp, Syl and I journey back through sunsetted games, […]


Happy 4th Blogiversary To Me
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 January 2014, 11:10 am
Holy crap, as of yesterday this blog is four years old! Time really flies, doesn’t it? It feels more like three, though that might be because I completely forgot my blogiversary last year. Would have forgotten this year too, truth be told, if Rowan (who will be celebrating his own blogiversary very soon as well) […]


TSW: Tanking…It’s A Love-Hate Thing
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 January 2014, 10:45 am
Ah, tanking. It’s really a role I fell into, not just in The Secret World, but in a lot of other “holy-trinity” type MMOs as well. After all, you can’t get nowhere without a meatshield. Since my husband and I always play as a healer-tank team anyway, and I’m typically the one who enjoys running […]
