Star Wars: The Old Republic

30 Nov

As promised, here’s my experience in playing the SWTOR weekend beta. Too bad I don’t have photos. Every time I try to get a screen shot, it just ends up with just a blacked out image. Baby daddy had the same problem too, and he’s using his own PC. We had some friends though who were able to do screen shots though.

So anyway, I had a Sith Inquisitor which I managed to level to 7. I know right! Then I decided I wanna try out the light side. So I leveled a Jedi Consular instead. I was able to get it to level 16.

The long conversations with the NPCs bored the hell out of me, honestly. It’s not like WoW wherein when you get a quest, a window will just pop up with the text of what the NPC is going to say, and then you just accept or decline. For SWTOR, the game will go into like a cinematic mode and the NPC will talk. Your answers to the NPC’s questions will affect some factors in the game like your companion‘s affection and your points towards the light or the dark side of the force. At a certain level, you’ll get a companion which levels along with you. You can equip gears and weapons to your companion. You also have the option to use your companion or not for quests. I think they count as a member for group quests. You’ll also get your own ship at around 15 or 16 I think. After I had the ship, I just played some space combat then I decided I had enough of the beta. In space combats, you will maneuver your ship and shoot through obstacles and of course, shoot the ships of the enemy.

Chances are I’ll be getting SWTOR just so I have an MMORPG to play, but I’m not too excited about it just like I was excited with WoW. but who knows, maybe I’ll also get addicted to it once I get my toon geared.

Diablo 3 Beta

24 Nov

I couldn’t sleep last night so I decided to start playing the Diablo 3 Beta. People have been waiting for this for years so I thought it better be good. I was only able to try out the wizard last night though as my baby was bugging me that he also wants to play lol! Here are some screen shots. Note though that I purposely blacked out my toon’s name for less chances of having people get the same name as mine lol! I’ve been using that name on WoW and with all other games I play, so I hope to use it on Diablo 3 as well. See for yourself!

Female wizard

Character classes are demon hunter, witch doctor, monk, barbarian, and wizard. You can choose the gender on the character creation screen, and you can also customize your banner.

New Tristam

This is the entrance to New Tristam. I like the clean UI. You also get achievements like in WoW and StarCraft . And yes, you’ll also get a companion that levels up later in the game.

End of Diablo 3 Beta

After 2 hour and 14 minutes, I finished the beta. W00t! I think I took longer than usual though because I tried to explore the areas to kill all the mobs. Overall, it was really good. I can’t wait for the game to be launched. I am definitely going to get a copy as soon as they release it lol!

Update on SWTOR: I’m still downloading the beta client. They said the weekend beta will start on Friday so more on that next week.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

22 Nov

I am sooo excited! I got beta access to Star Wars: The Old Republic.

 

I’m currently downloading the beta client. The game will be launched on December 20, 2011. I’m still unsure whether I’m gonna get the game when it comes out, so it’s a good thing I could play beta first. I will post screenshots when I start playing. I also have Diablo 3 beta access so we’ll see which game would get me more interested. Thank you BioWare and Blizzard for the beta keys. W00t!
