Battle Bards Episode 27: Kids’ MMOs
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 May 2014, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! This week my co-hosts Syp and Syl and I are finding our inner child with music from a variety of kids’ MMOs. Boy, I never knew there were so many of them out there. Beware, however, with this warning from the Sypster himself: If you’re allergic to […]


Battle Bards Episode 26: Granado Espada
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 April 2014, 9:02 am
Another new episode is up and ready for your listening pleasure! This week on the Bickering Ba–I mean, Battle Bards, we’re looking at the music of Grenado Espada, and it is quite possibly the most eclectic MMO soundtrack of all time. So it’s not surprising the bards are going to have some disagreements on some […]


The Secret World: Teamwork
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 April 2014, 10:45 am
I know I haven’t written an update for The Secret World in a while, and part of that’s because I’ve been spending so much time playing The Elder Scrolls Online, and another part of it is that truthfully, nothing much is happening in TSW right now. Earlier this month a mission pack of four investigation […]


Battle Bards Episode 25: The Holidays
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 April 2014, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! Now I know what you’re thinking. It’s a pretty random time to be featuring a theme show about the holidays. But hey, it’s ALWAYS a holiday somewhere in MMO land! Join Syp, Syl and I as we talk about our favorite tunes featured in special events, from […]


ESO: Storming Spindleclutch
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 April 2014, 10:46 am
The first time in a new MMO’s dungeon is always such a learning experience — it not only gives you such insight on the play style of your role or class, but also into the game and its mechanics as well. On Friday night my husband and I along with guildies Tententacles and Ryan ventured […]


ESO: Happy Launch Day
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 April 2014, 10:20 am
While those who preordered have been playing in headstart, today is the official launch day of Elder Scrolls Online for PC. If you’re already in the game, I hope you’ve been enjoying the experience as much as I have. Despite some server down times which is to be expected, the game has nevertheless been always […]


Battle Bards Episode 24: World Of Warcraft Part II
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 April 2014, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is live! Can you believe also that our podcast is a year old? This week, we’re returning to Azeroth, because let’s face it, we could be covering the music of World of Warcraft with a show featuring it every year and we’ll still never be able to cover all […]


Making Landfall In Landmark
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 March 2014, 2:54 pm
My closed beta email for EQN Landmark finally arrived late last night, so it wasn’t until this morning that I got to jump into the game to check things out for myself. So you might still pretty unsure about what Landmark really is, given its attachment to the name Everquest Next. What it is actually […]


Battle Bards Episode 23: Epic Boss Fights!
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 March 2014, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! This is one show you don’t want to miss! If anything, you’d probably want to hear at least the, uh, unique intro. Let me just say right now, I blame Syl! The image below, incidentally, is also chosen JUST. FOR. HER. Anyway, some of the bestest, most […]


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: 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. […]


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: 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 […]
