[ArcheAge officially launches for the public on September 16th, 2014.]
If you haven’t been keeping up with some of the upcoming MMOs, you should be informed of ArcheAge! According to Trion (the comapny of ArcheAge), ArcheAge is the “ultimate fantasy sandbox” MMORPG. I haven’t seen such a confident claim in a really long time, and it got me quite excited since I love the idea of sandbox games in general. I decided to keep up with their development, and they have made some incredible progress! Most recently, I got an invite from Trion to beta test ArcheAge. This will be their third beta testing session which will begin tomorrow (08/14/2014) until the 18th.
Nexon America has announced GMS’ next update which has to do with a series of older patches, the Mark of Honor content. This time, they have brought a theme dungeon where players can “go back in time” into the Sengoku Era where they can experience game play as Hayato and Kanna and fight a variety of different monsters. This patch brings two major updates as well. Firstly is the new region of Kritias, a “mysterious” kingdom next to Leafre. Kritias will entail a variety of events that feature equipment, chairs, and skins. Jett, the GMS exclusive class, will be going through some MAJOR revamps including their skills and their storyline. Kudos to you folks who kept faith in Jett, for the time has now come. Read on to read the actual update highlights as well as a few words from me.
As most of you might already know, the first part of GMS’ Rising Heroes update features the apparent sixth Hero of the Hero line of classes (Mercedes, Aran, and so on) — Shade. This is was an obviously predictable update since it’s part of the storyline and was in KMS as well! Aside from this big release (for those of you who love playing different classes), the second patch of the Rising Heroes update will feature a new theme dungeon to MapleStory called the Tower of Oz. Read on to get the update highlights from Nexon’s site as well as some feedback from me plus a few updates on what has been going on with me. It’s been a really, really long time!
I did not expect to be seeing an announcement that soon!
Well, the brand new upcoming Surface Pro 3 has been officially announced! There are definitely some obvious changes, but a lot more interesting stuff going on, on the inside! I’m glad that much of what everyone wanted was addressed in this Surface Pro (3) — a bigger screen, better resolution, better processing, etc. I’m honestly saddened by the fact that the SP3 is sticking to Haswell processors, but you never know — Microsoft may do a SP3 refresh of Broadwell processors (ideally, they should be doing so to keep up with the competition — the currently planned release of the Surface Pro 3, with Haswell, may just be a warmup to the refreshed/Broadwell Surface Pro 3).
I feel like tablet PC users, including myself, can safely assume that the Microsoft’s upcoming Surface Pro 3 is probably the most anticipated, upcoming tablet PC. The Surface Pro 2 was and still is an amazing device in terms of quality and the nature of being able to replace a laptop. However, there were many ‘could have’s that users have expressed all over the internet as to what the Surface Pro 2 could have had to make it better. This is Microsoft’s chance to answer their customers and potential Surface Pro buyers for a better impression of their reliability and capability.
Read on to see what specifications should be and may be (realistically) included on the next Surface Pro!
The update notes for Zero’s patch to GMS is here! This will be the 2nd patch as part of the RED update (v144) to MapleStory. This patch will feature a brand new, unique class called Zero which is essentially two characters played side by side. More details on what this class is like are on the post below this one. Read the rest of this post to check out the full update notes for the Zero patch (v144).
