So, Syp from Biobreak has this little widget on the right side of his blog, containing games he’s playing and goals he wants to achieve in each of those titles. I’d like to take his lead, as well, and see what i’m playing, what i want out of these games and what my goals are. Also, i think it’s a good idea to get a handle on the games i play/i want to play because the list isn’t getting smaller, unfortunately. I was hoping for 2014 to be the year i finally settle in one or two MMOs, but that wasn’t to be.
So here goes.
I’m still enjoying this one and it feels like there’s lots to do and explore in EQ2. Right now, i’m a little split up between two characters- Triupia on Antonia Bayle, an Inquisitor, who’s in a guild and supposed to be my main. I’ll continue to focus on her when i’m playing alone. I’d like to get her to adventurer level 25 and then get the complete quested Inquisitor armor. After that, i’d like to catch up in crafting.
The other character i’m playing is Eshaunia, a Fury on Valor, the german server. I started a project in my multigaming guild, basically moving from one f2p-title to the next with a group of players who vote which game to go for and then playing it in a group. Eshaunia will probably stay where she is after the project is finished, because i have the Inquisitor and Valor is quite empty.
Star Wars: the old republic
I started an Imperial Agent, because the storyline is generally viewed as the best in game and i haven’t even finished one of them. I’d like to do that. Right now, immediate goals are to finish the first zone and get a hang of the class and story.
Some people describe it as “Euro Truck Simulator in space”- but really, i like it this way. I want to improve my flying skills while doing simple delivery missions, maybe trading and exploring as a medium term goal. If i get into fights, i’d like to be able to hold myself. Also, i want to get involved in the storylines the game presents.
No real goals here. First one would have to be to level up and finish the main storyline. After that, it will be a fun ride of completing skill trials, finding hidden cars, exploring the mini-US and drive coast-to-coast or go on a virtual “Route 66”-tour.
World of Warcraft
I bought into it when they had the discount on the basic game. My wife plays, so i thought i’d like to join her, but we haven’t played together all that much. Still, i think the Explorer and Loremaster achievements are quite attractive goals and i’d really like to see the content of the game, because we spent a significant amount of money on this game if you add it all up and i didn’t play past the vanilla Un’goro crater.
There are some singleplayer games i’d like to visit, as well. Endless Legend, The Wolf among us, Civ:beyond earth, Divinity: Original Sin are some that come to mind.
All in all, i think i have enough on my plate to spend 2015 without buying any new games. But i also know it won’t happen, sadly. For 2015, i’ve made the resolution to curb my spending on MMORPGs, though. With all those alpha-accesses i bought in 2014 it was an expensive year without much success in this regard (Landmark is still quite rough, AA is broken, Repopulation still not released.
