Age of Conan reborn

Yeah, today about Age of Conan free to play release! So check out fresh review about this awesome MMORPG!

Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures is a concentrating greatly on story, beautiful visuals and a fantasy MMORPG with a never seen anywhere before fantastic combat system. It’s hard to find another game with such amazing atmosphere, graphics and music as Age of Conan. Additionally, game is now free to play, so you don’t have to pay money in order to play in the game.

When you finish developing your character and immerse yourself into the world of Conan, you begin on-board a slave ship like everyone, who you will meet in Age of Conan. Some bad stuff happens and ship is being crushing leaving you to drown in the deepest depths of the ocean. You are waking up on the beach of the island of Tortage completely without memories, it means for you fresh start. During the first 16 to 28 hours of having fun with AoC, you are finishing great missions/quests/tasks that help you find out about your past, and then you return to your home in order to start piecing together the rest of your precious, previous life.

As I mentioned, what makes Age of Conan really special, is combat system. It lets you take an active role during the fight. There is no pressing attack button, to win the every battle, you have to chop, thrust, and swing with your mighty weapons. You must be focused or you will die very fast. The combat system also gives you opportunity to control your defense rather than relying just on your statistics. Fighting stance signs showing the direction your enemy is weak, so you need to give more damage by striking his weak points. Include into game gore with breasted women running around and plenty of gamers will surely agree – its very nice to watch…

Additionally, proper using of available combos rewards you with possibility of dealing just great damage. Depending on the weapon, your character is doing also a fatality to particular enemy – it may be for instance chopping his head off. What’s interesting and worth mentioning is Age of Conan resting system when you want to regenerate your lost health, mana and of course stamina. Instead of having your avatar stuff their face with food and drink every minute to get your stats be at full, you activate the rest ability which takes only a couple of seconds for your avatar in order take a breather and refresh. But there’s more to Age of Conan than just strategic gory fighting and hot women.

But let’s talk about Age of Conan being F2P. First of all, there’s now a plenty of more content on offer than originally shipped with the title, and most of it is open to every great game. An annotated minimap in the top corner of the screen presents where you are and where your tracked missions are leading you. All of the regions from the known title are free to enjoy, you can do many interesting tasks and its not impossible to level all the way to the existing level cap which is 80. Of course before even downloading and creating your account, you have to keep in mind that Age of Conan: Unchained is not like rest of F2P MMO, so don’t expect that you will have access to everything in-game. Free-to-play members of Age of Conan get a selection of 4character classes and just 2 character slots. Instances, adventure zones, space in your bank and other quite handy options. Free players may access the starts of raids and the raid equipment ladder, but they can’t finish tier 1 without switching to Premium access. Also Free players may just ride the horses which needs the Basic Riding ability (despite that universe of Unchained is very easy to navigate).

Yes. Quests. Tasks are like in other MMORPGs, where you have to visit and revisit four locations until you are strong enough to face the current area’s final boss, who resides on the single-player side of the game, so you’ll have to battle with him on your. You’ll have to normally get rid animals and monsters along with gathering a specific amount of powerful items. That these collection or annihilation quests seem to have more of a real reason in finishing them over different MMO’s. Some of the background details on buildings may look a little bland at times, but its not that noticeable or detracting from the experience unless you’re looking at them for too long. Since its start not that long time ago, Hyboria has seen a population boom of more than 300,000 new gamers…

There is not online strategy games like TinyWarz!

TinyWarz is a free online strategy games massively multiplayer, where players fight versus other players and computer controlled bandits on distant universes. Time is an important thing in TinyWarz – players are given a limited amount of time to complete their turns and are rewarded for early finishing. In TinyWarz, each player is represented by a commander which they can personalize through skills and abilities that are gained with level points – which is cool in online strategy games.

From the reason that every deployment takes half an hour or more, the game is extremely slow, and will take a lot of time. Nevertheless, if you enjoy strategies, and you like turn based strategy, you will rather like this game.
TinyWarz is a free MMO turn-based strategy game that can be launched through your browser. The game does have graphics but do not expect much eye candy because TinyWarz concentrates on depth and gameplay over graphics. The depth of the game comes in massive part from being able to personalize so much such as bases, crews, vehicles, and commanders.

Tinywarz is not the most awesome game I’ve ever played, but it’s the best MMO strategy game I’ve found so far. The controls are not the best ones, and so is the visual side and free online strategy games. There are enough unit types to put in your army, and the people who pay don’t have a very large advantage over the without fee accounts.
Creating a mod.

If you deploy your army, you will walk on the planet for a some turns. These turns are time based, so if you have an incredible army, you will require quite some time to move it to the right location, so you must be quick. So it’s a game of clicking and hoping. Something I don’t enjoy is that there aren’t any battle animations or something, making the game from time to time some of boring like in free online strategy games.
Key Features

# Extremely customizable gameplay: bases, crews, commanders, vehicles, even factions can be tailored with skills, abilities and various mods.
# Seven different planets each with its own special rules and tasks.
# Game contains 65 skills/abilities, over 30 faction abilities, over 110 vehicle modifications, over 80 vehicles, 45 buildings, as well as a lot of crew levels and special abilities.
# In-game economy is totally player-driven.
# Turn-based battle.
# PvP focused gameplay where big groups of players form factions to do battle on multiple planets.
# Free to play.
# Non-PvP planets where fresh players can level-up safely against computer controlled opponents.
# Practice planets where players can try out new vehicles and strategies without fear of loss.

About online strategy games I know a lot. The complete RPG system and the forces maintain system look a lot like the one used in the Fire Emblem series: you maintain your army out of combat in your base, and if you want to struggle, you are required to deploy your army.

You can make an army, construct / customize units, assign crews, create bases, and fight to control planets. Watch your hired crews improve in combat and pick unique abilities for your command crew as they gain experience. Grow your army with salvaged units or purchase them from other players through the in-game store but you don’t have to use it because it’s one of the free online strategy games.

If you enjoy strategy war games. Warhammer Invasion

Hey guys, this day something unusual. I will inform you about outstanding card-board game called Warhammer Invasion. It’s type of Living Card Game, so it’s mix of cards and board things.

Every war starts with developing own empire. Your Capital is finished, and units and building are starting to come up in your kingdom. Unit and Support cards are able to give you strategy flash games in one of your three zones. You will be able to use them, if you will exchange resources for them. Tactic cards are able to sometimes change the way of the game.

I purchased this game about half year ago and I have to admit, that I enjoy it in awesome way. Game has been published with two full expansions and with some battlepacks to it, although I didn’t purchased them yet. Why? Because it’s still very nice to play with my pals using the same cards. And we are enjoying it a couple of times per month, so there is no wonderful need. We will obtain later these expansions so no worries.

Battle rage is taking armored Orcs, aimed against all what is alive, even against their own race. Warrior Priests of Sigmar are fighting using their heavy hammers versus corrupted forces of Chaos. Dwarven engineers are trying endurance of their free download strategy games walls and fortifications, in order to fight off against invaders. Forces of Destruction coming from the Northern wastelands has only one objective. To annihilate everything.

Living Game Card Warhammer Invasion has been set on the world of Warhammer Fantasy Battle and designed by Eric M. Lang.

Overall strength of your Quest zone is telling about number of drawn cards in every round. You have to remember, that number of cards in your deck is limited and if all cards will ends, you are finished. From the Battlefield you are able to try destroying your free online strategy games opponent. Every icon of strength is able to attack with more might to the opponent’s units and Capital, while having chance to defend with the equal power your Battlefield zone.

Every card which you are obtaining into your hand, may be used to make tougher one of your zones. Developments are often able to enable access some of the special abilities of some cards and reward you more attack or either defense skill.

All of these areas is important, but you are obligated to online games strategy select, which of them is most valuable and where you decide to concentrate your forces. Are you going to focus on collecting resources in order to become much tougher than your enemy? Or simply send your units onto the mission? Maybe you will gather up your mightiest warriors and war machines, to get control over your enemy on the battlefield? These are extremely important decisions for the fate of your empire.

Personally, I just totally love playing Dwarfs and Empire. Dwarfs in this game and just totally same like in other Warhammer. They are rather strategy games free download defensive race and it’s difficult to attack enemy in the same scale and that quickly as are able Orcs.

Well, game is as I see it just awesome and really worth of money. It’s able to give you more entertainment than lot of current generation computer/consoles games. Is never get dull, unless you are enjoying too much in it.

Age of Conan Rise of the Godslayer expansion

Categories: Age of Conan

Hi! Welcome on my weblog! Anyway I check some one website and I have found information that the upcoming Rise of the Godslayer expansion for Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures will be released very soon. According to official news, “In addition to the expansion pack, the retail box also includes the award-winning full version of “Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures”, complete with the numerous updates that have been added to the game since launch, such as changed gameplay features, entirely new zones to explore and more.” Yeah it’s nice to hear! Well, Funcom is really in hard situation because this known company is near a bankruptcy – they need more money or whole company and Age of Conan will collapse soon. Anyway check out official trailer for Age of Conan Rise of the Godslayer! Maybe this expansion will resurrect the game? Who knows?


(AoC Rise of the Godslayer)

Blah blah blah, well we shall see how they changed this bugged game. Sorry but what Funcom done it’s sad and stupid, releasing game in alpha version. Age of Conan was full of bugs and they released this game because of money. “Thanks to these updates, online gaming website MMORPG.com awarded “Age of Conan” with the “Most Improved MMO of 2009” award earlier this year. Retail customers will also get an exclusive starter package containing several in-game items that will help them on their adventures through Hyboria.” Age of Conan Rise of the Godslayer will be fully downloadable from official website.

Ok that’s it my friends, I need to go and I don’t know when I come back. I’m currently out of subscription in Age of Conan and I don’t think I come back soon to this game, not because it’s boring. I do not know whether or not to buy this expansion pack – Age of Conan Godslayer. After playing in AoC I feel tired and I don’t want to to play to much in MMORPG. I must say, I play less these days and I’m mostly enjoying life without games and computer.

See yaa!

Take care!

Today small presentation of siege battles on one of the Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures, presentation. As you can see on this video, AoC has very interesting and almost revolutionary siege system. Now all players can fight on very exciting and innovating PvP combat. Time will tell how much better this siege battles are better then siege battles in Warhammer Online or in upcoming Wrath of the Lich King expansion, but in my opinion Age of Conan has to many bugs right now to play with fun, without frustration. How can I play in Age of Conan when game has so many bugs? I dunno what Funcom is doing but they must change their approach to this game.

Only dialog with players and hard work can save AoC project. I hope they will be working professional. Game has large potential and I really hope, that Funcom is going to use Age of Conan’s potential fully. You know, killing in real time your enemies, running around and struggling against various mobs must be very entertaining.

Hello all! This video is most popular presentation of our beloved Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures. It has almost 1 year so what you see on your screen is not exactly Age of Conan, its like AoC Beta. Full game will be better, with DirectX 10 support and various technical stuff, which will make game better looking . With better textures and light effects or animation of your character will be improved, so you will have to own strong-like-Conan machine, if you want to play in Age of Conan in full details and high resolution.
