Rift and its expansion Storm Legion for free became really fast the most read and googled article I’ve ever wrote so far. In order all looking for info to find what they are actually looking for, I’ve decided to summarize what you actually get from the f2p model of the infamous MMO Rift.
When reading “f2p” most people think – OK, a game could not be free, as its authors will definitely starve or are some kind of enslaved souls working as tireless minions for their angry and mad boss. It should always has a catch so these people get actually paid for what they work. And it is actually so with many of the so called f2p games out there – you pay for additional action bars, for quests, for faster progression in order to avoid the mindless grind.
If you are a MMO fan you have probably already heard about or even played Rift and may be its expansion Storm Legion. The game has been critically acclaimed and received pretty positive ratings though it has lot of similarities with World of Warcraft.
It’s been a while since my last publication. The reason behind is that I was pretty busy reading and watching tons of tutorials about video capturing, editing, rendering, effects and so on.
So about ten days later I must say I am still a total newb but I managed to make an intro for my videos and to create my first so to say – “more professional looking video”. I must say for a person who was never capturing and editing any video materials and who never touched any program to do it – it was not quite an easy job (specially video combining and music to video synchronization).
Yesterday I’ve played War thunder for a while and was in some epic dog fights (for some reason there was even a jet fighter in our low bracket, no idea how it happened at all).
When I was flying my C.202 Folgore I saws this Ju88 on my 9 bombing our ships and decided to try to down it alone (really not a good idea with a single fighter which even doesn’t have a single cannon). I’ve managed to damage both of its engines and cooling, but my bird was already in a pretty bad shape. I’ve got some altitude when the engine died. Instead of bailing out I’ve decided to go for a safe landing, if possible even on our airfield for a free repair so I could go back in the fight with my Italian plane. After a really comic glide for about 5 (or may be a bit more kilometers) and some plow up of the near fields near our base, I was successful and back in business.
You can check it out in the video below.
As it was a really fun experience to quickly edit the video I’ve decided to go deeper in this new experience I have never tried before and would try to shoot and edit some cooler videos in the future. Hopefully the results would be entertaining. And as nowadays there are some heavy copyrights specially regarding music I would like to discuss the matter with some artists before editing and publishing and hopefully I’ll have a green light.
So, stay tuned.
We’ve got some long Easter holiday here in Bulgaria – about a week off work. It was actually my longest vacation since last October and I’ve decided to make the most of it, sitting at home and relaxing (most of my holidays are actually somewhere outside the city or even the country), so to some degree it was a nice change and I managed to “recharge the batteries”
So I’ve got plenty of time for some prolonged gaming sessions. Currently I am getting as much impressions as possible from some f2p games, as I am willing to have an article about their pros and cons but would like to try some more games out before writing down the article.
There are some titles – books, songs, movies, games – which are pure classics and will always endure the time and will feel fresh as when they were created.
The Civilization series are easily one of the most famous PC game classics. Spanning for already more than 20 years they continue to entertain – build on their basics and bringing new additions to the gameplay, sound, presentation and graphics.
Who hasn’t played as a kid of cops and robbers, of soldiers or simply hasn’t hold a riffle toy “shooting” and shouting at his fellow friends: ” Boom, you’re killed!”, “No, you were killed first, I fired just a moment before you!”… Most dreamed of becoming soldiers, fighter pilots, cops, holding a gun, shooting the bad guys. Growing up, for some it still seemed appealing some of them fulfilled their dreams joining the army to be respected, to prove themselves, you can name the reason.
But have you eventually met someone of this group who actually was at war or survived a shootout? I personally haven’t, but I bet all of them are not any longer the same persons they were before. The faces of doom, death and destruction lurk about every corner, the fear, the loss and pain – their closest friends.
