Emergency Patch Required for Black Desert Online

While taking a much needed vacation day to enjoy the freshness of a new MMO, I encountered a problem in Black Desert Online. I fear that this oversight stemmed from the original eastern version of the game, or worse, came about during localization. But now that it is available to a wide western audience, it needs to be addressed.

When acquiring your first donkey from the stable master in Velia, you’ll notice that among the animals available, there is no listing of llamas. I have yet to see a single llama in the game, which is cause for concern given that the stable master’s name is Lorenzo.

Lorenzo

If I can’t tell people that they can go buy one of Lorenzo’s Llamas… I may be forced to inquire about a refund.

[Neverwinter] …and your little dog companion, too!

It happens almost annually that the holidays throw my gaming playlist into a whirlwind. Like Dorothy, I ride the twister from the daily routine of what I know I want to play and I’m dropped like a house into a land of colorful new horizons. The problem arises as sensory overload kicks in. It becomes apparent that there’s simply too many gaming opportunities at my disposal and weeks later I’m lost, wondering why I’m wearing some woman’s shoes and just wanting to find a yellow brick road to follow.

Sometimes I only need a nudge. Or is it more like the jingling of keys? Either way, I just need someone to suggest a game that I hadn’t considered. That gem that I may have thought from time to time might be a good one to revisit but I already had a path. This time, the suggestion came from friend and co-host Zeli as she started playing Neverwinter again.

It’s one of those games that I couldn’t recall why I stopped playing. But to be honest, that’s most MMOs for me these days. I leave them alone long enough and anything that bothered me about them seems to become a minor complaint. It’s almost as if after spending time in the Land of Oz, I’m happy to be back to whichever home I decide to call home.

At least until the next tornado comes.

The Orrator’s Wintersday Feast to End Childhood Hunger

The Orrator is a Guild Wars 2 Fan Fiction newspaper created and written by our very own Steve “Slurms” Lichtsinn. Today, The Orrator has a special message: Be a part of the Wintersday effort to end childhood hunger.

This in-character article is for a very real charity called No Kid Hungry. Combining in-game lore with our own season of giving, The Orrator is asking you to help with this effort to end childhood hunger in America. He’s set a very modest goal of $150 for what he’s calling his first, hopefully of many, The Orrator’s Wintersday Feast. Your donations and shares can help attain that goal. Together we can  help kids have a holiday season without hunger.

Please help end childhood hunger in America by making a gift to No Kid Hungry on The Orrator’s 1st Annual Wintersday Feast page here: join.nokidhungry.org/goto/Orrator
