Diablo 3 on Switch and Warcraft 3 Remastered?

The Blizzard rumor mill is running rampant over the past few days. While these rumors are pure speculation and in many ways hopeful wishing, I’m still liking everything I hear.

Diablo 3 on Switch

First we have a rumor that Diablo 3 will come to the Nintendo Switch. There’s also a rumor of a local co-op mode, which has me intrigued though admittedly I would be very disappointed if there wasn’t online play.

The Switch does need hack and slash action RPGs. Though I’m not sure whether or not I could find a place for D3 on the Switch, since I’ve played it just about as much as I’d like to on the PC, it makes for a good addition to the console and a reason to back up Nintendo’s statement about expecting a longer shelf life on the Switch.

I Guess I’m Playing EverQuest

Two days ago I sounded really hesitant and said I was 50/50 on whether or not I would play again. I told the K&G Community I’d play again if others played with me, and before I knew it there was a team of people assembling once again.

So unless something changes and everyone backs out, I’m playing a Dwarf Cleric. The rest of my team consists of a Monk, Enchanter, and Paladin. If you’re wanting to join us in 3 weeks, be sure to make yourself known in our Discord.

We’re pretty much casuals. Some of us are uber casuals with young kids and only play at night while others are casual but will play throughout the day. We’re not hardcore. We won’t be power-leveling like the pros — meaning we won’t be level 50 in less than a week. We won’t be raiding. Right from the start our plan is clear that unless we stumble bassackward into a raid, we won’t be aspiring to do any. I don’t even know if we’re forming a guild. We’re grouping and showing up to the fun.

Making Circuits & Factories in ECO Game

Crazy times on the ECO server! We’re making significant progress ramping up the technology side of our city. We now have two factories, two blast furnaces, an oil refinery, two machine shops, an electronics table, and we’re ramping up to add a computer lab.

In the next 2-3 days we’ll be adding electricity to the entire city — a much needed luxury since we’re currently making circuits by candlelight.

I feel like I’ve been saying “electricity is coming” for a week now. That’s mostly due to the complexity and inter-dependencies of the profession system.

EverQuest’s Newest Progression Server: Coirnav

It's that time again! EverQuest recently announced their newest progression server. The details of this progression server are only slightly different from the previous iterations.

  • Content unlocks every 12 weeks until Gates of Discord
  • Post GoD, level cap raising expansions happen every 12 and non cap raising happen every 8 weeks
  • Experience is slower than Ragefire/ Lockjaw / Agnarr and closer to Phinigel post-exp boost. Translation: Decently slow but not painful
  • Raids are instanced
  • One character per physical computer

Now to answer the question many of you have already asked...

I don't know.

I'm debating.

I'd say I'm evenly split 50/50 on whether or not I will play on Coirnav. If I do, I'm playing a Cleric. But I don't know if I have it in me to grind in Unrest and Guk again through the pre-Kunark era. Perhaps not this soon.

I have until March 16, 2018 when Coirnav progression server launches.

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire VR Review

Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire is a new VR experience located in Downtown Disney. We were able to grab tickets on pre-sale last year before they sold out, and this morning, after months of waiting, was our turn to don the suits, helmets, and blasters and recover the Imperial intelligence.

Here's a quick story synopsis from the official Secrets of the Empire website:

Under the orders of the budding rebellion, your team will travel to the molten planet of Mustafar. Your mission is to recover Imperial intelligence vital to the rebellion’s survival. Alongside the pragmatic droid K-2S0, your team must navigate through an enemy facility walking into danger at every turn. Disguised as stormtroopers, grab your blaster, solve puzzles, and fight giant lava monsters in an effort to fulfill your team's orders.
