NEVERWINTER ONLINE

I fell in love with on-line gaming and Player versus Player (PVP) games because of Neverwinter. Its a Dungeons and Dragons game. Its a free to play MMORPG developed by cryptic and published by Perfect world entertainment.

You can create your own character by choosing from 8 different races. You start of without any gear or weapons on a deserted beach and you have to then collect gear and fight your way to Protectors Enclave. You can level your character up to level 70. Your gear also improves as you level. I love this game because its quite competitive if you battle against other players and playing with other players can be fun too especially if you’r in a guild.

The game has however changed over the last year and it seems that some players buy better gear to become better players which is disadvantageous to those who choose not to spend hundreds of dollars a month on a game.

My favourite character is the Trickster Rogue. I am sharing this video with you because this is one of the best Trickster Rogues  I’ve come across on the net. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Betty Boop changed my life.

When I was 12 years old, one of the girls on my netball team had a costume themed birthday party. It was my first costume party ever. My Mom had the bright idea of dressing me in one of her emerald green mini dresses and adding 2 huge balloons in my dress to make me look like Betty Boop.

At the party all the girls chased me with needles and pins to try and burst my “boobs” considering I was really flat chested and shy at the time. I remember my mother saying that everyone liked me at the party and that gave me the confidence boost I needed  at the time. I became good friends with all of the girls.

I think that is where my love for costume parties started because you can be someone else without fear of being judged because people will never know if that was the “real” you or the “make believe” you. In memory of that experience I’ve decided to post some very cute Betty Boop accessories I found on the net this week

Geeky Fridays

I am a real geek at heart. I love reading books, playing computer games, reading comics and watching movies. In winter months in Korea the only thing you can do is stay indoors. Therefore I have rekindled my love for computer games.

SO… this is what I’ve been spending my free time on. This Video contains 2 minutes of game play.

The game is very realistic. If you get shot once in the head, you die. If you get 2 body shots, depending on the amount of armour you have, you die. There is no health-bars for any player so you cant see whether you’ve hit someone or not. If you see them going down, they might have decided to lie down or they might have died. You just have to take your chances.

Furthermore it is slow paced as you have to play strategically. Running in shooting and screaming will only get you killed.If you were a fan of Counter Strike, you will love Insurgency. But beware, it is slightly different

  1. You cannot upgrade your guns. Everyone starts out with the same stock guns.
  2. You don’t always know if you’ve killed the other player. They don’t have health bars
  3. You don’t know how much health you have. You too, don’t have a health bar.
  4. The game is objective based. You have to get capture or defend the objective.
  5. You can choose to play “modern warfare” (Insurgent forces vs Terrorists) or “Day if Infamy”, where you can be either a Nazi soldier or American soldier.
  6. You can play PVP or against the bots. Either way you play with on-line players on your team.

You can buy it on Steam for around $16.
