I’m also back on the show after my two-month hiatus. It’s good to be recording again! This week, we talk the music of Rift. While the Bards may have a positive past with the game, our reaction to the score is a rocky ride indeed. What treasures and traps will they pull out of this music? Find out!
Talk about a challenge! How do you pick a handful of tracks to represent a game that’s been around for so long that it has over 1,000 pieces of original music in it? Fortunately, your intrepid Battle Bards Syp, Syl and I are up to the challenge as we tackle RuneScape, that free-to-play game that probably deserves more respect than it gets.
While Syp, Syl and I did a Wildstar episode back in show #6, we felt as though we didn’t do that soundtrack justice (not the least of which was the fact that we didn’t have access to the full OST yet!). Now that the Bards have listened to almost 200 WildStar tracks, it’s time to pull their favorites and discuss this wild, zany musical romp!
It took some of my guildies a little less than 24 hours, and a lot more of my friends aren’t even anywhere close, but for me it took about eight days. Last night, a week after the release of World of Warcraft’s newest expansion Warlords of Draenor, I hit the new level cap of 100.
I have to say, the experience just keeps piling on in this expac. My husband and I weren’t pushing hard towards 100 by any means, mostly keeping to our regular gaming schedule and only playing a couple hours in the evenings, a bit more on the weekends.
Not to mention, I kept getting distracted from questing by about a million other things — treasure hunting, collecting and battling companion pets, archaeology…and most of all, I got constantly waylaid in my leveling by my Garrison. Every half hour or so I’d be hearthing back to my base to set up new missions, check in on progress and status of my buildings, start new work orders, etc. It’s bloody ADDICTIVE.
It’s actually a wonder I made it to the new cap in only about a week.
Obviously there’s so much to do in WoD. Even though I’ve achieved level 100, I know I’ve only scratched the surface. I’m happy about a lot of the new content and while my overall impressions are positive, it’s still probably too soon for me to do any in depth write-up. The expansion has been keeping me quite busy though, and that’s good thing (though not for all the other stuff I have to do this month)!
The Elder Scrolls soundtracks have a legendary reputation in the video game community, but when you take Jeremy Soule (mostly) out of the mix, can the MMO score stand up to this legacy? Syp, Syl and I investigate in an exploration of this massive OST of one of the new MMOs of 2014. Keep your ears open for Nordic Santa!
