Tumblr, Archeage, and Kitten
Hi all! So it seems that I have managed to reach a place where Tumblr is something I don’t just crave or entirely lose myself in. So that means I’ll be doing it again; sense it’s not so overwhelmingly more fun then the other things in my life now… I may not be very good about when it happens.
I want to tell everyone about the new MMO out there. Archeage is a game I’ve been waiting on for years both literally and well in every way. This game gives you so much freedom, so much satisfaction in what you’re doing, and you never feel like you have nothing to do or that what you’re doing is pointless. This game lets you truly make who you want to and decide what they will do with their lives. You are not locked into any class or play style, you can level dozens of ways, and the world is amazing.
Archeage is free to play, with a few limits that balance and protect the community, and there is an optional sub known as patron status which lifts these limits completely. You never have to pay a dime on the game to experience a wonderful wide world of practically absolute freedom. It’s strongly community driven and will evolve as the community does. It comes out the sixteenth of this month (Sept 2014), and is the best game I have played in years. I play a lot of games…
So all that said what the hell is it? It’s a very open world game with very few instances, which means things happen in the world not pocket dimensions. It’s heavily focused on pvp and player driven economy. That means you can literally be a merchant trader who sails the open seas and walks the dusty plains delivering your goods to players and npcs alike.
You have complete character freedom for classes, even abilities and passives are entirely your choice within a class you design and build using the ten trees in game combining any three and their features the way you want. The classes do not limit your gear either. You can wear and wield any items you want to. You can also change your mind at any time.
This game gives you so much other games are afraid to, and beyond giving you so much to do and see when you want to, it also does a good job of protecting and limits companies and trolls from screwing up your experience. There are ways to have completely protected property or you can risk it in the wilds. What I mean is while you can get screwed you know that it’s a risk and you can entirely avoid it.
You can embark on epic journeys or stay where it’s safe deep in faction territory. There are no rules as long as you do not hack the game. You want to run a scam run it, you want to be a pirate go for it, but be warned the community has tools to both imprison and hunt you if you gain a reputation for something not good. You can even commit enough game labeled crimes to be kicked out entirely and sent to pirate island. You could also be a bounty hunter, sports fisherman, or a simple goods seller.
There is really nothing else like this game out there. Even the combat feels really good because of the freedom and combo system. Go build your own house and farm or go kill warlords dragons and demons. The skills are almost overwhelming in what you have for choice and how they interact. On top of there being so many skills you can do all of them up thru novice so you really know yes you want to do that and not that.
Okay rabid fan gush over. Go play the game. Also I know I promised pictures of my new baby, we decided to keep him, but idk how to get them from my phone to my computer and having trouble tracking down where my camera went to. He’s doing very well the vet said he’s actually a bit older then I thought and very healthy for the age, he’s just small boned compared to my other’s. He’s a bit of a rough-houser but he’s the only kitty who gets along with all the other kitties even my old lady kitty.
