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!

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 […]

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 […]


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 […]


TSW Monday: Elite Night
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 November 2013, 11:50 am
You guys, I think I’m over my fear of The Ankh! Now I can focus my energies on working on getting over my fears of The Slaughterhouse! Yeaaaah. The theme for The Secret World Monday this week was clearly “Elite Night”. Our group knocked out two more dungeons for the folks who needed them, first […]


Battle Bards Episode 16: Aion
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 November 2013, 9:05 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up for your listening pleasure! This week’s theme? Aion, baby! Another one of those games with a massive and incredibly varied soundtrack, I really can’t decide what’s more beautiful, the game or its music. Join me, Syp and Syl this week as we discuss these gorgeous tunes. LISTEN […]


TSW Monday: The Night In Pictures
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 November 2013, 2:04 pm
Last night’s session of The Secret World Monday was another mixed-bag for the Knights of Mercy. For the second week in a row, we had a large showing and was able to put together two groups for some scenario running and Aureus/Oreo farming. One twist, though — we thought we might be able to slip […]


TSW Monday: 3 Scenarios, 2 Teams, 1 Great Night
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2013, 10:49 am
Activities for our Monday night sessions of The Secret World have varied for the past several weeks, but last night everyone had the same plan: to tackle the new scenarios added with the release of Issue 8: The Venetian Agenda. We had enough people show up for two groups, made up of folks who ranged […]


Battle Bards Episde 15: Tearjerkers
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 November 2013, 9:00 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! Boo hoo hoo! I don’t know about my co-hosts, but personally, coming up with tunes for this week’s show so hard it made me shed some tears myself. Because, you know, I’m not really the crying type. Right. Ahem. *shifty eyes* Anyhoo, please join me, Syp and […]


Battle Bards Episode 13: Spirit of Adventure!
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 October 2013, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! This week is a “theme” show, and I have a feeling I’m going to like doing more of these. In this episode, we ask the question “What does adventure mean to you?” Everyone has their own definition, and Syp, Syl and I each submit their own favorite  “spirit of adventure” tracks […]


TSW Monday: The Whispering Tide
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2013, 10:55 am
It never fails; you go on vacation and that is the one week where everything happens in your favorite MMOs. Unfortunately, that’s how I missed out the first part of the second phase of The Whispering Tide event in The Secret World, but I was glad to be back in game last night to catch […]


Battle Bards Episode 14: World of Warcraft
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 October 2013, 9:01 am
This newest episode of Battle Bards was a long time coming. Our past episodes have featured music from World of Warcraft before, but now finally we give the game its own show. Love the game, hate the game, no matter how you feel about it no one can deny WoW has one of the most […]


TSW Monday: Trials In Trick Or Treating
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 October 2013, 11:12 am
As an MMO gamer, I love October because that’s when all the games roll out their Halloween events, but I gotta say, no one does it better than Funcom and The Secret World. Since every day is spooky-day in TSW, when Halloween does come around, it’s like their Christmas. It seems no one wants to […]


Star Trek Online: Sphere Of Influence And Fun With Worf
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 November 2013, 10:48 am
My playtime in Star Trek Online had tapered off somewhat at the end of the summer’s Risa event. After all, I’d done my part and earned my Risian corvette, and the only thing left to do was to fly happily into the (figurative) sunset as the captain of the classiest ride in space. Another event […]


The Secret World Monday: Mixed Bag
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 November 2013, 2:03 pm
I’ll be honest; with the flurry of running around in The Secret World, scouring Solomon Islands for stories, Cat God farming, Super Jack hunting, and just in general trying to pick up the last of the new clothing drops I still need from the Halloween update, I’ve completely forgotten that The Whispering Tide was still […]


TSW: Venice Is Going Down…And So Are We
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 November 2013, 10:38 am
The Secret World Issue #8: The Venetian Agenda is live! Last night, a few of us logged in to help JayeDub get his rocket launcher in the Venetian Missile Crisis quest (it was a night for all sorts of Venetian-related shenanigans, it seems) so we also decided to check out the new content while we […]
