Coffee Memoirs: I think we all have a few treasured games that we sometimes slip back into. For some of us its ultra-retro and sometimes its just great games from like 8-10 years ago that are still ticking. MMO’s are one of those finicky things. Sometimes they do well with new life breathed into them occasionally. Others seemed to have some great concepts and fan followings but ended up falling flat without being able to fully stand up on their own two feet. I am into following streams on Twitch for all my stupid little games I like to play to waste time here and there and on one I was greeted with an old MMORPG friend of mine.
We can nerd out here as much as we want without shame with a few exceptions so I am going to take my liberty and talk about Dungeons and Dragons Online. Its like pen and paper came alive without all the tedious dice rolling as that happens automatically in the background in real time in whatever you are doing. You can be almost any of the classes and mix em up. Party up with other real players and take on challenging quests. My personal favorite is a rogue because you get to say things like, “Rogues do it from behind.” I worked in a little dirty comment after all… glad I didn’t let anyone down. Anyhow, don’t be afraid to dust off some favorites and breath new life into them.
Werewolf the Apocalypse: Earthblood
Release Date: February 4, 2021
Platforms: PC, XBO, XBX, PS4, PS5
Action rpg where you are a powerful werewolf environmentalist. I wanted to say environmental terrorist but the more you think about it sometimes the corporations hurting the environment are the real terrorist just rebranded thru a business. So, the enemies in this game can become grotesque mutations later on so taking them down is doing the world a huge favor in this game.
Release Date: February 2, 2021
Like vehicular combat? Wait wait wait… not in real life, that’s road rage. This is more like a bad driving simulator that looks like “Rocket league”. Cause maximum damage to win!
