Leauge of Legends

Leauge of Legends, a top down 2.5d Isometric MOBA (Multiplayer online battle arena) MMO game, with hundreds of champions to choose from, the game can be interesting to play. Initially I'd like to warn you that this game can be very anger inducing so beware. Honestly while the idea of the game is fun, the way riot has handled the game has been poor. Riot Games seems to be more interested in pumping out champions than actually improving the game. Out for almost 5 years, Leauge of Legends has became the number one MOBA game to date internationally. But issues with servers, more interest in profit than improving it, the game has been the ticking time bomb Riot can only seems to make the fuse longer too. Horrid matchmaking, unbalanced champions and a horrible community are what ruins this game. That all being said, the game is still enjoyable to me, atleast personnally as a good "once in a while" game. Once I was very addicted to Leauge, but now i'm playing more casually and it's done wonders for my blood pressure.

Diablo 3/Reaper of souls

When Diablo 3 originally came out. I really enjoyed the game just on it's own. But after awhile I started to feel like what I was doing was pointless. Just doing the same thing over and over to get better. And while the original game was fun, the new Reaper of Souls expansion really is the icing on the cake. Quite a few things have changed since the expansion. The difficulty modes, Normal, Nightmate, Hell, and Inferno. No longer exist. Now the difficulties follow a much more efficient and better thought out system. Essentially the difficulties are the same there are just more of them, allowing you to cater the difficulty to the gear your character has and it's level. Another BIG change is the auction house. While in the vanilla game, the auction house was near crucial to leveling and getting good gear, it also made it easy to "buy the game" so to speak. Which arose alot of "Is it pay to win?" Questions being asked. Which is what I believe to of been the driving reason for the change in ROS. The last crucial change is that, since the auction house is gone, getting good gear is more possible with the system Blizzard is calling Loot 2.0 which fundamentally keeps the loot the same just with higher chances for better gear. Which really improves the game.

Runescape Review

  This MMORPG is one that definitely keeps you busy. With over 20 Skills and thousands of levels the game can really eat up some spare time. This game is one that I personally have played for hours upon hours even since I was younger. While some are turned away by the games grinding aspects, others like myself enjoy the act of becoming better over long periods of time. Thousands of people play Runescape so you'll likely never be alone, and find a guild in no time.

  The main feature of Runescape is the social ability, you can meet up and barter at the world renowned Grand Exchange, or just sell privately from your own special mercantile local. Perhaps after the dealing is done you can head to the house parties and spend some money and have some fun. Maybe you prefer a hunt to relax? Relaxation and profit, why not? you can hunt just about anything anywhere. Could you be a cold blooded killer? this game has plenty of PVP for you, anything from the dueling arena to the clanwars, or even special PVP worlds. If you're more of the calm type, a life of woodcutting, fishing, mining, crafting, fletching and many more skills can keep even the peaceful busy, free of fear of murder. 

  The possibilitys really are endless with what you can do, wanna throw logs on a fire and make a huge bonfire? you can do it. Gather together a group of able adventurers and go after perilous foes such as the King Black Dragon, The Kalphite Royals, or even venture into the depths of the tzhaar and face one of the hardest bosses in the game jad. Feeli ng really lucky? go after the monster with the rarest millions of dollars drops, the Corporal Beast, but be weary,  many a souls never come back from his lair.

  Overall I really find this game to be a good game for the hardcore players, and the more casual ones. it provides enough work and challenge to be difficult and appealing to a more hardcore-esq audience but also is easy enough and simple enough to draw in those people who may only play in their leisure time.

Today I'll be talking about a game called, Aura Kingdom. Aura Kingdom is a free to play anime MMORPG where you can pick to play between any of these classes.

  1. Guardian
  2. Duelist
  3. Ravager
  4. Wizard
  5. Bard
  6. Grenadier
  7. Gunslinger

A pretty normal roster of classes to any RPG veteran, but the thing that makes the class system in aura kingdom more diverse, is it "primary/secondary" system where at level 40 you can choose an additional class to be your subclass. This subclass can be a class that compliments your build already, or something crazy and unique.

To add to the list of uniqueness Aura Kingdom can offer is the extensive system of your battle companions called, "Eidolon" which will accompany you on your travels and support you in the way you deem. In the beginning you can choose from four starter Eidolons.

Merrilee : Your generic healer/support CC Eidolon, I recommend her for any DPS class.

Serif : Close range single target damage, I recommend him for anyone looking to tank, or play a more offensive melee role.

Grimm : He's gonna play like Serif, just with more emphasis on ranged damage.

Alessa : A freaking miniature unicorn, who'd argue?

I really enjoy this game, I find it easy to get into, but also without a super steep learning curve. The "point" click targeting system" may seem lackluster to all the newer "action" targeting system MMORPG's of today, but with quirky dialog that can give you a laugh, (which really surprised me since the game was ported over from Korea) and keep you playing for hours on end.

Thank you for reading!
