What I’m Up To

It’s been quite a while since I last posted so I figured I’d enlighten my lovely readers (anyone still there?) with a glimpse of what I’ve been up to recently. It’s nothing exciting. As much as I would like to enthrall you all with some sexy tale of sexy spyness or something (I did watch Skyfall the [...]

Do MMOs Make You Feel Old?
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 February 2013, 4:48 pm
My brother, part time gamer and full time noob, is only 35 years of age but to hear him talk you’d think he’s approaching pension age fast. “Those young whipper snappers”, he mutters under his breath whilst shaking his head at the folks in their late twenties who idly wander through his middle class suburban [...]

Turning Four
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 January 2013, 6:11 pm
The week before last (Christmas Day, to be precise), this blog turned four years old, an incredible feat considering I can vividly remember the day I started it and wondering to myself it would ever survive a year or prove to be even the least bit popular. Well, as fortune would have it, We Fly [...]

Guild Wars 2, Storm Legion or Planetside 2?
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 December 2012, 4:48 pm
It’s almost the Christmas holidays and I can’t wait. I love running my own business but geez, does it keep me busy. Although I take some holidays throughout the year (I still have 12 days vacation time remaining which says a lot though), the festive period is the one time of year when most non-retail businesses either [...]

Is MMO Combat Really That Bad?
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 25 November 2012, 4:58 pm
Perhaps having grown up playing the original Everquest, I’m spoilt with combat in MMOs these days. I mean, one of my most beloved character in Everquest, a Warrior, had only two buttons to press when fighting, Taunt and Kick. And Kick was useless. People aren’t joking when they say that combat used to be a [...]

Do MMOers Dislike Being Social?
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 November 2012, 4:50 pm
I remember the first time I ever logged into a MMO. It was 1999, the game was EverQuest and I was on a 64kb dial-up modem connected via a, get this, pay-by-the-minute ISP (cue accidental £300 phone bill). What seems old hat now seemed incredible to me then and I still recall the first few [...]

EverQuest Next: Return Of The Sandbox
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 October 2012, 6:03 pm
Word on the street is that Everquest Next is going to be a sandbox MMO, a huge one by all accounts. Colour me surprised. Just as I thought SOE were out of tricks, they go and play a blinder on us. I was honestly prepared for the next installment of my beloved EQ franchise to [...]

Tanking – A Dying Mechanic?
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 October 2012, 5:08 pm
I’ve been playing a lot of World of Warcraft recently, probably more than I should have. All-in-all, I think it’s a testament to the strength of the new Mists of Pandaria expansion and between the new continent to explore, the hundreds of quests to complete, the new battlegrounds and the rather addictive side-games, there’s a [...]

Pandaren Ponderings
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 September 2012, 4:00 pm
Like a lot of people, I’ve been playing Mists of Pandaria pretty full on since Tuesday. Well, technically, Monday night since I was there for the in-game launch at 11pm British time but considering it took me 30 mins just to target the NPC (see above) and then the whole Jade Forest zone crashed before [...]

You Should Buy Torchlight 2
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 September 2012, 5:47 pm
Torchligh 2 is better than Diablo 3. There, I’ve said it. And yes, I know it’s not professional to compared games to each like that but considering I’m just a hobbyist blogger, I figured I can get away with it. So I’ll say this: Torchlight 2 is everything I hoped Diablo 3 was going to be. This [...]

Thoughts On Returning To WoW
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 September 2012, 5:07 pm
I say “returning” but the fact is I never really left, not in the sense of unsubscribing at least (I wonder how much money subscription games make out of people not bothering to cancel their sub?). Although I still logged in to dabble on occasion, I haven’t seriously played WoW since Diablo 3 came out [...]

Guild Wars 2 vs Patch 5.0.4 – Which To Play?

Tomorrow sees both the official release of Guild Wars 2 and the arrival of the World of Warcraft 5.0.4 patch that revamps all the classes and the entire talent system.

Do Older MMOs Have The Advantage?
Posted by We Fly Spitfires - MMORPG Blog [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 August 2012, 7:00 pm
I don’t think I’m wrong in saying that it’s been quite a while since any new MMO has been released that’s been a major success. I don’t mean to the degree of being a WoW-killer or anything either, I just mean a recent MMO that’s done, y’know, well. RIFT’s probably the latest MMO that I [...]
