WRUP: A review of Titans Return Magnus Prime with every noun replaced with moth edition

I had no real use for Moths Return Powermaster Moth when the moth was first announced, because while I liked the previous version of the moth… well, there are about a dozen moths of that moth sitting in my moth. However, the Japanese moth got released with what is probably the last moth of the line, so I wound up with him anyway. And it’s kind of circular, since the original moth was the first Moth moth I actually owned. Everything comes back to the same moth after all.

Much to my surprise, this is a really solid moth; you can tell where the moth shares design elements from Ultra Moth, but the retooling makes it feel like a very different moth. I expected the moth to feel a bit oversized, which is often the case with “enlarged” Moth moths, but here it looks trim, lithe, and in sharp contrast to the bulkier moth that Moth looks like. So it’s a pretty great moth. Not worth the $100 moth alone, maybe, but still really fun. And he has the right moths, that means a lot to me.

Oh, right, What Are You Playing. Let us know down in the moths!

Andrew Ross (@dengarsw): Pokemon Go is happening because I need an EX Raid. I’m hoarding Rare Candy for Mewtwo because (like in the main series) Mewtwo just wrecks the game. Actually, I’m hoarding in general in anticipation of a double-candy Halloween event. Admittedly, Fire Emblem: Heroes is getting attention because I’ve got two Ike (my favorite FE hero mostly thanks to Smash Bros) and some other powerful heroes to play with now. Oh, Friday was Undertale’s second year anniversary and one of my social groups is doing a “Video Game Book Club” on it, so I may help my mom finally finish it, as she tried playing it while I was in Japan and has expressed interest in finishing it.

Brianna Royce (@nbrianna, blog): Guild Wars 2 and Ultima Online again. Probably more of the latter this weekend since I will likely be playing plenty of Guild Wars 2 this fall. Just not launch weekend so much! Curse real-life plans.

Eliot Lefebvre (@Eliot_Lefebvre, blog): The usual Final Fantasy XIV antics will dominate my weekend, but I also was weak and picked up Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 because I had never actually bought Mega Man 9 or Mega Man 10 (and I really enjoy Mega Man 7). So that’ll be in there too.

Justin Olivetti (@Sypster, blog): I’ve jumped back into Neverwinter with a new Scourge Warlock, so I’m trying out that type of gameplay and seeing if this game can scratch that “casual MMO” itch that I’ve been having. Otherwise, I’ll be pushing onward in Lord of the Rings Online and Secret World Legends’ Transylvania.

MJ Guthrie (@MJ_Guthrie, blog): I’ll be spending some time in the first alpha test for Wild West Online, trying my hand at some gold mining and exploring the land. I also need to give some TLC to my dinos in ARK: Survival Evolved. Other than that, I need to catch up on the summer reward quests I missed in EverQuest II and give the ArcheAge anniversary corgi event a go. I mean, who could resist a corgi?

Pierre, patron: I don’t understand, something is delaying my progress in Destiny 2. What’s this thing called work? It’s been occupying too many hours of my days this last week. And now I’m late and not even ready for the raid when all my clan is prepared and has started confronting the Leviathan. This I have no choice but to spend my entire weekend trying to catch up. Sorry, I have to leave. Fallen troops have disembarked and I have to show them the way back to where they come from. Enjoy your gaming weekend MOP readers.

Your turn!

Fun fact – Those big beautiful green Luna Moths don’t have mouths. They can’t eat. They basically starve to death in a week after their transformation, and only use that time to mate.

That picture above cut off the prettiest part of the moth though :D

And to keep this on the game topic – I’m playing Fortnite, though I’m unhappy with some of the things they’re doing now (like the PvP part that’s splitting the focus when the co-op game isn’t near done). Realistically I’m so upset with it that if I was offered all my money back that I’ve spent on the game and would have to close my account to take it, I’d do that.

Another week where I was too busy programming to play anything. But the work went very well and I got all the chores done quickly yesterday, so today is SWTOR Sunday.

Not too much since its the start of classes.
Secret World Legends, a bit of dailies. I need to step it up soon enough if I want all (non-weapons; I don’t have time for that crap) cache stuff bought from the auction house.
I decided to play Mario + Rabbid’s Kingdom Battle for reals. I’m into it. Go Rabbid Peach/Petch!
Tinkering with mobile games.
Continuing Telltale’s Game of Thrones Season 1 (will there be a Season 2+?). I know its issues. I’m still compelled.

I’ve been on a huge strategy game kick. Endless Space 2 finally added fighters and bombers so I picked that up because I am a huge Endless fan.
Also been playing Medieval: Total War 2 by my lonesome and Civilizations 5 with a friend. I’ve also been working my way through the campaigns of Starcraft Remastered and Relic’s first Dawn of War game in the Warhammer 40k universe (then I’m going to move onto Winter Assault, then Dark Crusade).

In terms of online games, I’ve mostly been playing Destiny 2 and Everybody’s Golf. But I feel like any day now I’m going to reinstall LOTRO and make some real progress. Oh, I’ve also been playing R6 Siege with a friend.

This past week, I played Destiny 2 voraciously, and had great fun. It made me very happy to be back in a familiar game setting that I love, and to discover that there are still adventures to be had, and stories to be experienced.

My other game this week was Agents Of Mayhem, also played on my PS4.

AoM has quirks and problems — moreso problems caused by certain design choices, rather than bugs, I have found, but I still really enjoy playing the game, for whatever reason. It just “hits me the right way” for lack of a better explnation.

Even when I bought the new Johnny Gat character DLC for the game, only to discover that the DLC (when added) completely locked up my game, and made it unplayable — I just reloaded my entire game without the DLC and started the game over again, from scratch, so I must enjoy it on some level, right?

Has anybody else ended up liking a game that everyone else — gamers and critics alike — seem to consider inferior or failed?

I’m not talking about otherwise popular games like, say, World Of Warcraft, which some people like to hate on, but rather, games which come out to generally lukewarm reviews by gamers and the press alike, but you’re the one going, “Hunh? Actually, I really like this game!”

This isn’t the first time it’s happened to me, but I wonder how common it might be.

Take care of yourselves, please, people. What would I do without you? :-)

Cheers,

Has anybody else ended up liking a game that everyone else — gamers and critics alike — seem to consider inferior or failed?

I’d have to say that my second favorite game of the year, after Horizon Zero Dawn, has been Mass Effect: Andromeda, so I definitely have some idea of what it’s like to really get into a game that critics and fans alike consider sub-par or flat out bad.

I really like Saints Row, and I’d love to give AoM another chance, so right now I’m keeping my eyes open for a sale on any of the various platforms.

You’re wise to wait for a sale, I think. That way, if you buy AoM and it just doesn’t work for you, at least you didn’t mortgage the family pet to buy it, y’know?

I would stress again that it’s got problems. I actually found that, when I was forced to re-start my campaign a second time (as above), I did a lot better, because I’d spent enough time with the game and the characters, that I knew better how to navigate the quirks of AoM’s design.

AoM hits you with a lot of “how to play” pop ups in the early going, but the finer points of how a lot of the game elements work (or don’t work) together in the game aren’t really explained well. You just have to suss it out by playing.

So yeah, good idea to get this one on sale, or used for PS4, so if you actually don’t like the game, you won’t feel like you got stung.

Cheers,

That reminds me that I need to play Agents of Mayhem more. I pretty much only did the intro stuff and haven’t really touched it since, even though I’ve been a big fan of the Saints Row games out of Volition.

Overwatch is still around – i don’t see the shine wearing off any time soon, especially when i’m pinched for time.

Guild Wars 2 is keeping me interested so far. Seems like a crap load of content to do, and it’s streamlined enough without being bombarded with +exp scrolls, OP gear, and other “incentives”.

I’ve finally gotten to trying out Secret World Legends. So far i’m having a lot of fun – albeit i’m still in the very early stages of the game. I’m enjoyed the revamped skill system, so we’ll see how long it keeps me hooked.

Other than that, i’ve been dabbling in some lesser known/polished games, such as Pirates of the Burning Sea, Alien Swarm, Uncharted Waters Online, and other non-fantasy games, just to change it up a bit.

Back in the game again now that I replaced a dead video card. Huzzah!

Some Guild Wars 2 game-wise but also enjoying some Let’s Plays and Twitch streams. Dead by Daylight released Leatherface as a killer, and it’s been fun to watch some new content in that game. I gave the free play a try, but my computer isn’t all that good even for that game sadly. Considering the salt factory in that game’s community, it’s probably for the best.

It’s double experience weekend in Runescape this weekend, which means that’s where I will be spending my time until Monday morning. I got lucky and was not scheduled to work at my floral job this weekend, and my other job is from home on my own hours (research) and I don’t have anything that needs to be urgently done!
