TSW Monday: The Whispering Tide
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 October 2013, 10:55 am
It never fails; you go on vacation and that is the one week where everything happens in your favorite MMOs. Unfortunately, that’s how I missed out the first part of the second phase of The Whispering Tide event in The Secret World, but I was glad to be back in game last night to catch […]


Battle Bards Episode 13: Spirit of Adventure!
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 October 2013, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is up! This week is a “theme” show, and I have a feeling I’m going to like doing more of these. In this episode, we ask the question “What does adventure mean to you?” Everyone has their own definition, and Syp, Syl and I each submit their own favorite  “spirit of adventure” tracks […]


TSW Monday: Our Worst Nightmare
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 October 2013, 10:02 am
At long last, the Knights of Mercy attempt Nightmare modes in The Secret World! Um, can it really be our worst if it’s our first? Wait, don’t answer that. One of my guildies says he’s had worse nights in Elites, but I don’t know; personally, I can’t remember having so much trouble a dungeon since […]


Screenshots Of The Day: Oricon
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 October 2013, 10:58 am
Lots of purdy screenshots to share today, but before I get to more, first I have some order of business to get out of the way. Due to schedule changes, a couple of regulars in our Star Wars: The Old Republic group have not been able to attend our TORsday nights, and as such Operations […]


TSW Monday: An Exercise In Hi-lair-ity
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 October 2013, 10:41 am
This week’s The Secret World Monday saw us running lairs again (and we will be for the foreseeable future as long as the drops are good, the AP/SP keeps pouring in, and our resident godslayer is still working on beating the Gatekeeper). Anyway, I just don’t get it. Apparently, lairs aren’t supposed to be very […]


TSW: Of Filth And Lairs
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2013, 10:52 am
Interesting things are happening in The Secret World these days, and while I’ve been trying hard to be patient, another part of me can’t help but rejoice at the recent developments and shout, WELL IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME! We’re finally on the road to what I feel is the biggest event of TSW since its […]


Battle Bards Episode 12: Lineage II
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 September 2013, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is live and ready for your listening pleasure! Join me, Syp and Syl this week as we take the plunge into the soundtrack of Lineage II. It’s true none of the bards have had much experience with this game, but none of us can deny the quality, diversity and […]


TSW Monday: “Mortal Sins” Committed, Er, Completed!
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 17 September 2013, 10:52 am
Change of pace for The Secret World Monday this week; while my fellow guildmates helped one of our own complete the last Elite dungeon he needed for the achievement and to unlock the gatekeeper, I was able to finally do some questing in the game world. Most importantly, I really wanted to finally finish the […]


TSW: The Hunt For Goldzilla
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 September 2013, 10:58 am
So a bunch of my friends and I were playing The Secret World earlier this week, and one of them said, “I’m so glad I don’t have a MMO companion pet obsession.” The part about how “or else I’ll end up as nutters as MMOGC” was unspoken but implied. DAMMIT. IF I COULD CONTROL THIS […]


Battle Bards 11: The Episode of Odd Balls
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 September 2013, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is live and ready for your listening pleasure! This week’s show is a little…odd. Tune in and join me, Syp and Syl as we talk about the MMO tunes that sound strange, quirky, or just don’t seem to fit into any particular theme. But together, they sure make a […]


Screenshot Of The Day: So That’s What That Smell Was
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 September 2013, 12:03 pm
The Imperial Mercy Corps continuing their rampage through old level 50 hard mode raids in Star Wars: The Old Republic, racking up achievements and gaining more experience fighting as a group. Hopefully aspiring towards more and more challenging content for our SWTOR Thursdays as time goes on!


TSW: Nightmare Mode Unlocked
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 3 September 2013, 9:51 am
The Secret World Monday didn’t officially happen this week due to the Labor Day holiday, but I went online for a bit anyway after hearing that Pid got his Gatekeeper achievement unlocked, and I was thus inspired to try and do the same. I was sooooo scared for it. You wouldn’t believe how much I’d […]


I Tried My Hand At A New Hobby Over The Long Weekend…
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 4 September 2013, 10:03 am
Painting miniatures is something I’ve been drawn to for a while, but I’ve always held back, feeling awkward that I don’t actually play tabletop games. I thought I’d be committing some horrid faux pas by doing that. Well, after having been assured by several kind folks that this is entirely not the case, I decided […]


Ambrov X: A Sime~Gen RPG Kickstarter
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 5 September 2013, 10:20 am
Just wanted to share something cool I discovered recently — well, credit actually goes to my friend M.L. Brennan who first brought it to my attention. She’s an author and went to Worldcon last weekend where she got to chat with Jacqueline Lichtenberg and Jean Lorrah, two impressive women writers in the world of sci-fi […]


TSW: The Slaughterhouse Hates Us (And Science)
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2013, 12:35 pm
Well, The Slaughterhouse can hate us all it wants, but last night The Secret World Monday crew finally cleared it. The scientists in there though, weren’t so lucky. The mindless extermination of scientists aside, it’s actually not a bad instance, even though it’s given us a terrible time of it in the past. The problem really […]


Battle Bards 10: Music From Age Of Conan
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 August 2013, 9:02 am
A new episode of Battle Bards is live and ready for your listening pleasure! Hard to believe we’re up to 10 episodes already! First of all, thank you if you’ve been listening all along, though you might have noticed a particular MMO with arguably one of the most renowned soundtracks has been left conspicuously unfeatured […]


SWTOR: Greetings From The Eternity Vault
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 August 2013, 10:52 am
It appears Mercy Gaming’s Star Wars: The Old Republic Thursday nights are really taking off! Yours truly was especially on pins and needles last night, seeing as on the agenda was our first operation as a guild since the resurrection of the Imperial Mercenary Corps. Our target: Hard Mode Eternity Vault. Believe it or not, […]


Before You Think Subscriptions Are Back In Style…
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 21 August 2013, 3:30 pm
With the news of payment models for Wildstar and Elder Scrolls Online coming out this week, I see a lot of people have been weighing in with stunned reactions. But I can’t say I understand the surprise. I’ve made mention before that the “Launching with a subscription and then transition to free-to-play a few months […]


SWTOR: The “Real” Big Ding!
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 19 August 2013, 11:00 am
This weekend saw me hit level 55 on my Bounty Hunter in Star Wars: The Old Republic! YAY! And I know thus far I have not talked much about the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion, but now that I’ve played through most of it, I have to say it’s pretty well done. The story […]


SWTOR: Who Are You Calling Meatbag?
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 14 August 2013, 1:02 pm
TA-DA! Behold my new HK-51 companion, prepped and ready to do his master’s bidding. Okay, HK, your first mission is to make yourself at home on my ship and meet your new crew. Please take “extra care” of Torian for me, will you? I’ve never quite lived down the indignity of male Bounty Hunters getting […]


Screenshots Of The Day: BEARly Made It
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2013, 12:01 pm
Hey guys, check out my new teddy bear! His name is Einstein and he’s blue and fluffy with a pink ribbon…and sure, I know he’s a little splattered with blood and pieces of gore, but I still loves him. Thank you to TenTentacles for helping me with this achievement! Armed with his superb video guide […]


Battle Bards Episode 9: Taverns And Inns
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 August 2013, 9:02 am
Another new episode of Battle Bards is up! In this episode, Syp, Syl and I invite you all to join us in a bard’s favorite place — the tavern, of course! This week we’re in our element, kicking back our feet after a day of adventure, savoring the warmth of the blazing hearth, good food, […]


SWTOR: The Imperial Meatbag Corps
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 9 August 2013, 11:14 am
It’s just like the old days! About a dozen people showed up last night for Mercy Gaming’s weekly Star Wars: The Old Republic night, which was a really good turnout. So naturally, on the agenda last night was something we figured everyone can do together — working towards getting our HK-51 companions. Not many of […]


SWTOR: The Sort-Of-Big Ding
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 August 2013, 11:45 am
I used to take more pride in my collection of levelcapped characters across my many MMOs, but over the last couple of years the time constraints (and real life generally becoming more busy) has made me slack big time. Many games have also seen expansions in that time, raising their levelcap, and I haven’t been … … Continue reading


TSW Monday: Locking Down The Facility
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 August 2013, 10:45 am
If at first you don’t succeed…give up whatever the hell you’re doing and just go do something easier! A good tenet to live by, right up there behind “Let’s wipe it!” if you’re one of the Knights of Mercy working at picking off Elite dungeons in The Secret World. It is thus I found myself […]
