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 […]


Screenshot Of The Day: The Slaughterhouse
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2013, 11:20 am
In The Secret World this week, my Monday night posse and I thought to press on with the Elite dungeons we haven’t done and decided attempting the Slaughterhouse. As it turned out, that place is perhaps too aptly named. I won’t go into all the demoralizing details here, but fellow guildie Tententacles pretty much summed up […]


Battle Bards Episode 8: The Lovely Tunes Of EverQuest 2
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 30 July 2013, 9:01 am
The new episode of The Battle Bards is up! This week, Syp, Syl and I chat about the music of EverQuest 2, and it occurs to me what a delightful thing it is to be an MMO player when the topic of “people riding bees” can pop into casual conversation twice in a single week. […]


SWTOR: The IMC Strikes Back
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 July 2013, 11:02 am
In light of the success that Mercy Gaming has had with the implementation of The Secret World Mondays (it’s been our guild’s longest-running endeavor so far), a few of our members have started up similar weekly sessions for Star Wars: The Old Republic. As such, the Darths at the top have declared Thursdays to be […]


Screenshot Of The Day: Pleasure Yacht
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 July 2013, 1:19 pm
I’m no fan of grinding daily quests, not even when it involves zipping around on a tropical island with a jet pack for Star Trek Online’s Risa event. But hey, a starship reward in exchange for a mere 3 minutes of my evening, for 25 days? I thought it was totally worth it. Behold my […]


TSW: The Knights of Mercy And The Mystery Of The Ur-Draug
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 July 2013, 10:33 am
He’s big, he’s blue, he’s butt-ugly, and he’s humiliated me and my guildies in the Knights of Mercy more times than we can count. He’s the elite version of the Ur-Draug, last boss in the Polaris instance in The Secret World. No boss has given us half so much trouble in any of the other […]


The Big Ding: Neverwinter Online
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 22 July 2013, 11:38 am
Adding yet another MMO character to my stable of maxed-levels  is always a happy occasion to celebrate…even in this case, where “the big ding” happened in like the most mundane and anti-climactic way ever. I’ve been playing Neverwinter Online — that is, if your definition of “playing” can extend to simply logging in every day, […]


TSW: The Knights of Mercy Shaken, Not Stirred
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 18 July 2013, 12:09 pm
Okay. The Secret World team has seriously outdone themselves this time with the latest update Issue 7: A Dream to Kill. I know you’re all probably sick and tired by now of hearing me lament the fact that not more people are playing this gem of a game, but after experiencing this new update, I […]


Battle Bards Episode 7: Main/Capital City Themes
Posted by MMO Gamer Chick [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 July 2013, 9:01 am
Listening to MMO soundtracks always make me nostalgic for the games I haven’t played in a while, and nothing does that to me more than the music you hear in the main or capital cities. Whether the tunes sound grand or contemplative, proud or melancholy, those are the songs I always remember best. In cities, […]
