Between the Forgotten Realms content that Turbine’s added to the game in the past year and the new missions coming with Shadowfell Conspiracy, players could conceivably level solely in this setting. Turbine’s offering a number of incentives to plunk down cash for the expansion, not the least of which is an additional quest and a new prestige race for you to experience. Turbine is giving two new missions for all players to experience in the Forgotten Realms. Turbine didn’t go into as much detail about the other races, although the devs did open up a bit about the other options coming this summer. Stone Armor, Willpower: Both pretty much covered from the Brute side — Willpower is a bit weaker for Tankers and Stone Armor is a fair bit better, but they’re solid sets that should serve well. A fair bit of both Defense and Resistance is good, and there’s a lot of nice area abilities, though you miss out on any sort of passive AoE damage. You mix in some Defense along with Resistance, and you get some Resistance to Psionic, which matters a lot. Battle Axe, Dark Melee, Dual Blades, Electrical Melee, Energy Melee, Fiery Melee, Kinetic Melee, Stone Melee, Super Strength, War Mace: Yes, pretty much the same as in the Brute lineup, except that you can replace “if tanking” with “when tanking.” Stone Melee does get extra points for synergy with Stone Armor as a great tanking set.
The Hunter’s armor and jumpsuit were a brilliant and shiny yellow, replicating the game’s vibrant color palette. Remember, each color M&M has its own personality, video game outfits so choose your color wisely. Well the fun thing to have is a party where everyone has to where a costume to the party! It’s obvious that Turbine’s a little Forgotten-Realms-mad right now, although that’s not a bad thing. Turbine’s creating dedicated cosmetic outfit slots that will appear on your inventory screen so that players will have an easier time making their character look as good as possible. Her earliest memory of any video game was some Tarzan game for her PC that she remembers having a hard time beating. This week’s European PSN update is headed up by Fire Hose Games’ Slam Bolt Scrappers, a game compelling enough to deserve a disclaimer: You are going to have no idea what you’re doing during your first game. If you don’t feel enough like a superhero, roll one up and start tanking your heart out.
I’ve always really wanted to like Tankers a lot more than I do. Don’t be embarrassed — there are a lot of moving parts here. Like everything else, there are the times when cosplay goes terribly wrong. But I still want to like Tankers a whole lot, because they’re just plain fun. If you like Rogues, then you’ll want to check out the Shadar-kai. Plus, there will be additional pre-order bonuses depending on the overall number of STEAM pre-orders for Tropico 5 – check out the Steam store page for more details. But first and foremost, a Tanker is hard to kill, hence the fact that defensive powersets come first in selection and allow players to get more Resistance as a Tanker than anyone else. But the name “Tanker” fails to conjure up images of anything beyond a dry recitation of party roles. And that’s the Tanker right there, the guy who gives the “bullets don’t hurt me” speech right before the neighborhood mooks start filling the air with bullets. When the expansion hits on August 19th, players will be able to ignore all of DDO’s Eberron content to start a new character at level 15 in the Forgotten Realms.
The Bladeforged will join a full party roster of new races when the expansion hits. Party details for you! The first mission, Disciples of Shar, tasks your party with hunting through caves for Shar cultists, while the second mission, Escape Plan, puts you in the role of a guard who’s watching over a famous prisoner on board a river barge. Attend lots of social activities, including a Kickoff Reception, a Grand Banquet, a Costume Contest and an offsite VIP Party with lots of fun, games and live entertainment! The role of tanks has always had a certain bit of disconnect in fantasy games — after all, very few fantastic adventures involve arguments over who should be taking damage and who should be healing — but in the superheroic milieu it’s a pretty established role. One of the hallmarks of the race is that it is more resistant to slashing damage, so much so that it builds up a damage-boosting buff when taking that type of hurt. Don’t let it hurt your head too much. But of course, a lot of unfamiliar fans might recognize him as the main character of Netflix’s animated Castlevania series.
