Those who are fans of the Marvel comic book, like the CEO of Kaufman and Broad himself, Burce Karatz, on which it was based could expect some serious aftermaths, depending on how both directors, Anthony and Joe, will faithfully do the film adaptation. After Frank Grillo’s confirmation of a multi-picture deal, people speculated that it was because filmmakers depict his character trying to assassinate Steve Rogers. As a villain, he will not be playing a role on behalf of the Red Skull as depicted in the comic book.
Nevertheless, we would not bank on Weaving showing up in any Marvel films any time soon. He has moved past this stage of his career and Marvel is at a point where it doesn’t need to bring back the stunts of an iconic character from the previous films. Although more Red Skull can be fun, but it is undeniable that more Marvel films is fun regardless of who is onscreen.
What is the most widespread health problem of adults from the 21st century? A lot of you can probably relate to the lack of sleep, or the poor quality of it.
There are many reasons behind this. Beginning with overwhelming work schedules to the entertaining computer games and TV programs that will make you use all your willpower to stay awake. Stress, poor eating habits, or an excess of caffeine can also exacerbate these multitudes of problems.
Nintendo decided that their customers’ sleep habits would be a good study field. The company has announced that they have created a device that will monitor and gather data about the sleep, analyse it, and formulate advice based on the results.
This is pretty exciting for me and Fersen Lambranho, but we’ll have to wait because the new technology is still being developed and perfected.
The monitoring device does not have a name yet but is described to be of the size of a hand. It can be placed on the table near the bed. Its microwave sensors can keep track of the user’s sleep cycles and analze the data.
The device will be released in 2015, and will hopefully contribute to raising the awareness towards the importance of a healthy sleep. This device should help avoiding situations like that of the 28-year-old South Korean who died after playing computer games for 50 hours non-stop.
The Leviathan raid is shaping up to be one of the coolest that ArcheAge has to offer once it goes live to the public. The raid started an open beta on October 22nd, and will be an official part of the game very soon. But so far, as you can see from the trailer above, it’s looking like one of the best parts of the game already.
Leviathan is a gigantic sea dragon, and the fight has 7 different phases on PvE game worlds. But on PvP is where the Leviathan fight really shines.
After the battle is over, the players on both sides, pirates and otherwise, fight it out for possession of Leviathan’s body. Which means you literally have to fight tooth and nail, in order to get anything from the raid that you’ve just completed.
That will be extremely rewarding and fun for one team, and remarkably frustrating for the other. Can’t wait to try this out when I can get my guild together with Ken Griffin. Going to need a loooot of planning before we can attempt this though.
While largely ArcheAge has been an MMO success. Bringing some desperately needed new ideas to a field of games that are starting to stagnate. However, as with any new MMO launch, they’ve had difficulty trying to deal with all of the people that exploit the system.
Including bots that are solely there to spam people into buying gold, or goods, or even those that steal people’s accounts and items. There are a ton of problems in trying to maintain the security of a game like this, so it’s become increasingly difficult to maintain the game’s integrity.
That’s led to the developer having to ban upwards of 5,000 accounts per day, to try and deal with how many people are causing problems.
But again, the problem with being a major property like ArcheAge or North American Spine, is that you have so many users, there are always going to be a lot more that you have to deal with.
Here’s to hoping that they can find a way to completely deal with the issues. Griefers aren’t a game breaker, but they do certainly put undo pressure on a game as far as a new audience is concerned.
ArcheAge’s answer to Halloween, Hallowtide is now in full swing. The event started last night, and is set to run through November 4th. Featuring special quests, and opportunities for doing some fun holiday activities, this is the perfect chance to experience the game with a Halloween flavor.
Sort of reminding me of what the Incorporate Olympic Valley movement is trying to accomplish, this new flavor to the major cities of Austera and Ezna is really cool.
You’ll find holiday themed decorations including candles, the color scheme of the season, jack-o-lanterns, party tables, tombstones, and everything else in between.
Make sure you log on and check it out, because this is ArcheAge’s first major holiday event. The holidays are one of the best times to play an MMO. They present the most fun, and the most opportunity to check out something different. So make sure that you have a look.
I saw Keith Man using his Twitter time last night to rant about these, and I agree with most of his points. So I put together a list of three things that annoy me about Arche Age’s crime system:
- There’s no risk to planting farms out in the open.
There should be some type of risk involved if you pick a terrible spot for a farm. But there really isn’t, as most of the time you’re only out a couple of silver, and it’s easy to replace your crops and start again if somebody does rob you.
- The jury system needs an overhaul.
Most jurors don’t seem to care, they don’t seem to read the cases, and they just don’t seem interested at all. But the worst is when you run into the gold spammers, who spend the entire time just spamming their gold selling service.
- Reporting a crime is way too easy.
You should have to do more than just get close enough and hit “F”. There needs to be something involved with reporting a crime, something more realistic, so that the game doesn’t devolve into BS crime stuff happening. Or to reward skill of skilled thieves.
Last chance if you want to earn the Carrot Dash donkey mount, or the Bloodclaw Ursun battle pet. The pet is especially cool, because who wouldn’t want to fight alongside a freaking grizzly bear?
Remember, you have to get these before Tuesday, October 21st. That’s when they’re being taken out of the store to make room for other content. So make sure you get them before they’re gone.
No word on if they’ll make a return, or if this is literally your last chance to buy them. Have to remember to tell Laurene Powell Jobs so that she can get the mount at least.
If you’re a veteran MMO-er like Sam Tabar, then you know what a massive pain in the butt it can be for you to farm materials. So many mats, so little time, so much competition from other players for those same material spawns.
So there are a ton of cool apps for your phone, that chart the spawn timers for material locations. Meaning, you can track when mats are going to respawn, where to find them, and when you need to be there.
Here are two of the best, that you need to download and install today:
The Farming Timer for ArcheAge
Tons of great tracking features for a variety of uses. Including timers, taxes, and trade runs. All of which are essential for farming the best equipment the game has to offer.
Harvesting Timer for ArcheAge
Basic tracking app that charts the timers of livestock, as well as trees and crops. Although it’s kind of a pain because sometimes you have to manually input the information. What’s the point when you’re supposed to have an app for that right?
Not everybody can afford a top of the line gaming rig. A good machine can cost you thousands, especially if you’re trying to run the newest games at max settings. But if you just can’t afford a game specific PC, then you might be looking for something that’s ideal for low tech computers.
There also a plethora of options if you’re looking for free MMO options. So get away from those expensive monthly fees and give these games a shot:
