Otherland has recently moved into open beta. So, naturally, I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, I couldn't even be bothered to make it past the tutorial, which is a shame because the concept is pretty cool.

 

When you start, you make a simuloid - a cybernetic representation of yourself within this network of worlds. You find out that some egocentric yahoo is doing something silly to tear the worlds apart and you have to try to at least slow it down in order to give everyone time to escape. (I like to think of it like all the characters from Wreck It Ralph abandoning their dying game.) Pretty neat, right?

 

What made me finally uninstall the silly thing was the repop rate on mobs in the starting area. I was tasked with finding energy blobs that I got by interacting with these ports-like features on the ground. The problem was that I kept getting attacked by mobs. And, okay...that's fine. I've played enough MMOs to be used to that. However, these guys popped so fast that the first one I killed didn't even have time to disperse before the next one formed. And, of course, when they attacked, I couldn't interact with the ports! So, I was standing in a neverending stream of mobs, fighting to try and get the 5 seconds I needed to get these energy blobs.

 

So, I shrugged and uninstalled.

Last night, my husband rented Destiny from Redbox. The installation process took so long, though, that we didn't get a chance to try it out. I imagine that he'll get his pew-pew on sometime this afternoon, and I can sneak downstairs to see what it's like

My son has decided that he wants to play DC Universe instead of Pirate or Wizard with me. That's cool. I don't have a problem with that. Not gonna lie, though. I'm kind of disappointed. I love Wizard and Pirate, but I'm not going to resub if it's just me when I know ArcheAge is around the corner.

 

ArcheAge is also what I am using the make myself resist the temptation that is Sims 4. No. I already have a new game looming on the horizon. No need to spend that money!

DCUO is a really solid game. I've been dinking around a bit with it on the PS4.

It is fun! I like the fact that if I don't feel like combat, I can fly around and look for collectibles.

Blargh! No. I am on the last story route in Virtue's Last Reward and they throw another puzzle room at me. I don't care. I don't want to do any more puzzles. I want to know the rest of the story!

 

I know what happened inside the Nonary Game. I know how it was orchestrated and I know the roles the different people played. But, I still don't know the purpose of the Nonary Game....and I'm not sure that I know who the main character really is, now. (The last route has given me doubts about that.)

 

No more puzzles! Answers...NAO! /goes to look for solutions because screw puzzles
