So I see random threads here and there but I was wondering what everyone has been playing recently.
Warframe Beta: Ninja space aliens in space doing ninja-y stuff. Its a 3rd person Shooter/hack&slash where you're an alien ninja doing missions. Kinda of grindy but there's a lot of missions to do your stuff levels up if you use it. You have a Long range weapon, Pistol, and Melee weapon and a "Warframe" suit that has up to 4 differing abilities. Its fun so far, also I think JJ Abrams is on board because Lenflare/Blooms abound.
Tera:Rising - Told wife to try it and she told me to play to, She likes it made me go buy a retail copy for founder status now that its FTP. I'm not liking it to much, seems really easy I lvled a Warrior to 15 haven't died and came close maybe once. Just seems easy if you have played something like DMC/God of war and know how to dodge. Also the amount of Loli is creepy.
Ni No Kuni: Kinda got bored, I like Jrpgs but hate the ton of summons thing because I always wonder if I doin' it right (like leveling the right types or feeding them the right stats stuff like that) So far its a good game just ugh.
Planetside 2: Shoot things (from very far away when I can) get Xp. Big fights, but has a few crushing issues for me atm. The draw distance changes depending on how many people are near you and I play a sniper with a Longshot (NC) with a 12x zoom. I constantly watch people vanish while in my sights and it just ruins it for me. Also my character is a smoker like me and cant hold his breath to steady his weapon sway for more than like 3 seconds.
Othergames when I'm in the mood. I havent found anything that seems to demand all my time or sucks me in, more like Hmm what do I feel like tonight. I downloaded Path of Exile (Final Diablo Fantasy 7x10) to try out but haven't got around to loading into the game atm.
If you play any of those games my handle is (Warframe) Zackavious, (Planetside2) Zackav NC-Connery Server, (TERA)Xain - The PVE server starting with an A. Otherwise PSN: Zackavious, Steam: Beanx (Invader Zim avatar).
In othernews anyone use Raptr? I had Joph check it out, it seems interesting Its a social network/Xfire like program that tracks your games across all platforms/PC gametime played, and puts it on your Profile page. Like this.
One of the main reasons I found it interesting is it can track your PSN, Xbox360, Steam,WoW accounts and put it all in one place. Break down the games you play at the most, track achievements, etc. The desktop app has all the Im built into it (Like Trillian) so you can have all your contacts in one place (MSN,Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, PSN, Xbox F-list, Steam, FB Chat) and chat with them. (PSN redirects you to the Playstation website that allows you msg people on PSN).
It has an Ingame overlay, like Steam, where it will take you directly to the "community" for that game where people are talking about it posting pictures etc (not fullscreen just a small box) has a Built in Web browser, seems like a lite android type web browser so you could check stuff without exiting the game. Supposedly they are adding Video capture functions sooner or later.
Its a neat little package, mainly I use it to cut down on the need for multiple IM programs, and Game tracking.
Also they have "rewards" sometimes developers with give out gifts you can get by playing there game til a certain threshhold is met. They were giving mounts in Rift if you played for a bit before time on the deal expired, they were also giving away free copies of the game, and free upgrades to the new expansion back when it was semi relevant (2 or so months ago) Like this one here.
Idk something to consider or something, its interesting, neat program . Some people might like it. God I feel like a shill for hyping it this much but figured some people may haven't of heard of it. Also the Desktop app is optional, as any sort of Facebook/Twitter integration.
