I Fought the Uber Penguin

And the Uber Penguin did not win. While I’m also dealing with Penguin in the Telltale Batman game I don’t mean that one. No no, this Uber Penguin belonged to Asheron’s Call. The Uber Penguin is a metal encased cyborg-like level 160 critter that roams the frozen plains near...

Because I’m Batman!

Right, well, disappointingly in my opinion — this line was not once uttered throughout the opening episode of Telltale’s 2016 ‘Batman – The Telltale Series’. I’m holding out hope that this oversight will be rectified in the future episodes. Either way, today I...

Finishing the Facility Hub

Sure, I finished it about 20 levels later than intended. But I did! The last level gate on the last quest location from the hub was level 45 after all. I’m now 66 (although I was 65 when I wrapped up the Hub). I sort of got myself a tad distracted working through other goals and...

Quality of Life Improvements

I had to make a really hard call last night. A call that went against my nature. Against all instinct. All understanding of what is ‘right’. But I did it anyway. And uh… So far it’s been… Yeah, pretty alright honestly. The deep seismic shifting I felt deep in my gut...

Teetertot Moments

Only a week ago, I was trying out Asheron’s Call again for the first time in what I estimate must be at least 10 years. Fourteen if you take it from when I last ‘seriously’ played. And I almost bounced off entirely. I was so close to just calling it a failed experiment and moving...

Ding!

Well alright, maybe more than just one ding. I very almost didn’t get a post out at all tonight on account of wanting to extract every moment possible of play until better sense took over and drove me to bed. I made a fair bit of progress — not just in raw levels (although that too),...

Thrill of the Hunt

In EverQuest you camp. WoW has you questing. But in Asheron’s Call you go hunting. Ranging out near the edge of the safe lands. The pillars mark the edge, although it is still a transition and riding the edge can reap some rewards if careful. The pillars themselves also have a backstory...
