Midnight Owls First impressions

Oh, man. Talking about elsword again. Or elsword related content. I want to share my impressions about the discord server and guild called MidnightOwls. Where do I begin? It’s a server. That much, I can say. The some of users are “interesting” but when I learn more about some of the members, I can give a full-on blog post.

Let’s start with the server-side of things. It’s your normal server that adds in guild elements. It’s a guild server. Crazy, right?

I left a guild called blu because some of the members were there to flex and to say I did not enjoy being around people who like to show off is an understatement, and they were not too welcoming, save a few users. So I left the Blu for a guild called MidnightOwls. This is a “dead guild” in elsword.

Let’s start with the Elsword guild. Since joining. I wanted to join a guild as a member, not be an admin. Already not fond of guilds, I was offered “admin”, I said yes, only because I can’t say no and hurt someone’s feelings.

So, outside looking in the guild, it seems it has two people who want to try to run it differently? I feel both sides need to pick aside. I should say this. Trying to revive a guild takes a lot of time and effort to make it active again. And even then there are extra variables.

PSO2: New Genesis closed beta impressions and bugs

So, it is over. Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis beta. There was a 3 day close beta for pso2: NGS, and during this time, you were meant to find bugs, play around, and do as much as you can, and hope the servers don’t shit the bed. And the Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis beta servers did that from day one up to day three. On the final day, the experience was much better than on day 2.

Alright. Where do I begin with this post? Playing pso2: NGS with some Witching Hours members and mastakirby has been interesting. I should get my thoughts collected since I plan to add this blog to the NGS survey.

Quick edit: Hi, everything you see here is an opinion, and not a fact. This is how I see things and a reminder that opinions are good to have. With that out the way. Here my silly post.

List of content

  1. Classes
  2. Affixing
  3. Combat and feel of the game
  4. Pictures in NGS I took
  5. Bugs and issues

Classes

The classes in base pso2 were ok. The one that I played the most that stood out the most was “hunter” this class has a lot of weight behind the attacks, it is slow, heavy, and anything but fun. And this was a class I got to level 95 and stopped because it was not fun. To be fair, all the classes felt slow on purpose, well the base classes, but that is my opinion

and just playing two classes, hunter and gunner. I can say they feel fun to play. Hunter is fast and fun, has better attacks, and can even counter an attack. And with gunner, it is crazy how much everything was changed, for the better. As a gunner and hunter, you can use swords, knuckles, twin machine guns, and an assault rifle.

You have so many options, and you are not stuck to a class weapon set like pso2. You can mix-match weapons from what it seems but this is the beta impression, and things can change.

The point is, classes are fun to play. They are no longer slow or heavy. Each class is a good time, and they left a good impression on me.

Affixing

My most awaited feature, affixing. We all know that affixing in base pso2 is pretty bad, and that is putting it nicely. Affixing was gambling but instead of losing money, you are losing time.

Pso2 affixing is just farm weapons with certain affixes and hope it has the affixes you need to get a stronger affix. And you can wait for pso2 day to give you a 20 % boost with affixing or take a chance and hope you can get the affix without fail. And as result, you will feel sad or happy depending on the result, but most of the time, you will feel sad.

Witching Hour Guild Impressions

Hmm, I need to think about how to start this out. So, how I joined this guild was the same way I joined the Thundercry guild in elsword, that is, being away from the keyboard. I was away at the time, looking up how to get better gear in Phantasy Star Online 2, and listening to music.

Then the moment I tabbed back into the game, I saw that I got a pso2 invite to a guild called “Witching Hour.” I had thought about declining the invite since I and this unknown guild would lose nothing. But I remember that I don’t have a guild, and if the users turn out to be shitty or pso2 elitists. I can leave the guild guilt-free.

The guild when I joined was interesting and still is interesting. You know what they say? First impressions are everything since they can help create a bond with someone or not. Most of the impressions I got from most of the users in “Witching Hour” have been positive. Now every guild will have those users that are full of themselves, elitists, or both.

Sonic World DX Sage demo impressions

When did I make this post on the Sonic world DX Anniversary Demo? I made that post in 2019. It is crazy how time flies. But the blog post was my first impression of Sonic World DX in 2019. Safe to say, my first impressions were anything but great. After I made that post, I stopped playing it.

I saw that the Sonic World DX team released a Sonic Amateur Games Expo demo or sage demo, but after the sonic world dx anniversary, I got to the point where I ignored the game. And there is their Sonic World DX Q and A video, and that is something else.

With a bad experience with Sonic World DX, I want to see if the Sonic World DX sage demo fixed some problems I held. And what other changes got made. And since they made a post saying they are cutting some characters. May as well try it out, and I might be impressed.

Enough stalling. I’m going into this sage demo with a bit of bias and a bad experience. If I start sounding mean towards the game, you know why. And I think it is time I made a real impression post here.

Sonic World DX is a 3D platformer where you have a stage selection like Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. There is no story, no main battle guy. Just run and play, which is good.
