MapleStory 2 - First impressions

First off let me say that I am not a huge fan of this style of game and at first this one really turned me off. The story and animations are too over the top for me. I found skipping almost all the cut scenes was my cure. The world is huge with housing and npc's spread all throughout. There are so many things to do that I found myself wanting to see everything, complete every zone quest and just explore it all. There is a story line taking you around the world that guides you to new zones and the quest are very rewarding.  The built in quest markers make following them easy, even without watching the cut scenes. There are wonderful events that happen every 30 minutes ( I think) and in the middle of all of that there are random hats that you can find that take you to very Mario-esk mini worlds that offer a quick  money or xp collecting area that has huge payoffs.

Grouping is easy and so far I really like the Dungeons in the game. They are typically 3-10 minutes long and have you fighting a boss at the end that gives off good rewards. I've only done 3 so far so this might change later on. Lastly I have not even got into the house building / furnishing, I've vissited a few player built structures so far and from the looks of them there are a lot of options and flexibility to what you can do. Overall this is the most impressive FTP MMORPG I've ever played and I have yet to feel like I am missing out by not paying for premium. With that said I am only level 24 and that might change.

I recommend anyone looking for a fun MMORPG that's more causal then most to check it out and join our Discord and guild.

Franchise Hockey Manager 5 - Review

I love simulation games and am a huge NHL fan, go Pens! So when I got this curator offer from FHM5 I was more then excited. I started out as a GM + Coach in a small OHL league. At the start of the game it ask if you want to including all the hockey leagues in the world in your simulation. It warns for best results to keep them all, but that will slow you down during simulation.  I did not think twice about this and just kept them all.

My career started out with 3 contract offers from minor league teams. I looked at my options and chose the one I though I would fit best into. I looked over my line and made a few adjustments but not much. I wanted to see what my new team could do. I hit the simulate until next week option and waited...a really long time for 1 week to simulate. Like 30 seconds. Typing that it doesn't seem long but waiting in the game it seemed like an eternity. I finally make it out of Preseason and with only a few minor injuries and start my season with a win. Sadly the game actually starts taking longer to simulate when the season officially begins though and it starts to wear me down quickly.

Typically long loading times are not game breakers for me, but the fact that most weeks you are waiting longer to simulate then actually play the game is a bit much. I know I could be doing other things to help improve my team the proper way, but sometimes I just want to make little changes and see how that first season goes.

With all that said I enjoyed what the game allows you do, it's got a lot of complexity and I am sure will give many hours of game to some hardcore fans, I am just not that hardcore and the simulation times are going to keep it that way.
