Someone asked how Angus was doing yesterday, so I logged him on after a long long hiatus yesterday to see what was what with Mr. Unicornpants. HECK, I even finished a couple more quests with him to get myself reacquainted. It was a good break, and one that I needed after that grueling run through Marleybone and Meowiarty.
I read a great article a week or two ago about punishing game play vs. challenging game play. It's a great read. At some points I have to tell you that choosing to play this way with Angus really feels punishing as I go along. At first it was challenging . . . now it's starting to get painful. I would never ask anyone to develop a game that was as unforgiving as playing through Wizard101 with none no clothes on . . . especially in Mooshu against those freaking ninja pigs that cast fire spells. LOL.
I’m glad I wasn’t recording audio last night during my Angus session. Such hate was spewing out of my mouth for those Oyotomi Supply Runners in Tatakai Outpost. It's so hard to defend against back-to-back-to-back fire elves. It took a quick monstrous card + tempest or two to finally get through those DARN DANG DAGNABIT DIDGERIDOO ninja pigs. XD
If I can build up the speed to play Angus again, I will definitely keep you informed on his progress. Just looking at his quest log, he probably was a little hasty in going to Mooshu, and maybe he should head back to Marleybone to finish up a bunch of little side quests that he skipped. It might make things like the Oyotomi Supply Runners a little easier. (Easy being a relative term)
Timothy Icegem yesterday asked me if I could YouTube a video of my Dark Crow Derby pet casting up his Dark Crow card. SURE I SAYZ! HERE'Z ONE FOR YOU KID!
With a little Fire Elemental polymorph on the side . . . felt good to fry a couple Ninja Pigs after playing Angus.
And my final offering today comes from Free Realms, not Wizard101.
Woohoo! Level 10 Soccer Star, y’all!
If you remember from a few posts ago I was going to go with Pet Trainer as my next job of choice, but come to find out . . . Sony broke their Pet Trainer class. *snicker* I wonder what they have in store for pets? I mean, I don’t get into claiming sides between Free Realms and Wizard101 like I’m part of some street gang or something . . . I just like both games actually. It’s just, I know and you know that Free Realms and Wizard101 are competitors, right? So I'm now looking at Pets through the eyes of Free Realms vs. Wizard101 . . . It’s kind of a "duh" at how Wizard101 currently blows Free Realms out of the water there. One would expect Free Realms to amp their game in response . . . not break it.
So, since Thomas Lionbolt of Free Realms will be stuck at level 8 pet trainer until its gets fixed, I decided to give the Soccer Star job a go.
FUN! It’s a fun minigame. It’s starting to get a tad difficult, but definitely not punishing by any means. I’m interested in seeing what levels 10-20 look like. :-)
