Wolcen: Major Content Patch

If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path.  If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios.  On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off!

ATLAS: Present and Future

We have been at it since day one, that ugly and...well, let's just stick with ugly...launch. Even through the lag muck and server instability, you could read the stars and see the potential.  Right off the bat it was only for the tough, and we barreled through the glitchy log-ins, the shaky starter zones and the wretched "lawless" starting areas and found our way to the rafts.  Some were able to get to our island after 3-4 hours of learning how to tack, zig zag and fight through server borders and with a full stack of human hides, and then some were finally rescued after what seemed like days of being eaten alive by scorpions and crocodiles, only to quickly get used to dying to the cold, the wolves, the alpha horses, the water, the sharks and each other's general noob mistakes.
Yes, with the known developer, we did try to ARK it, or Dark and Light it...hell, we've even tried to Life is Feudal this one....and Atlas is just NOT those games.  Some visuals and sounds are there, but the depth and options and functionality is just SO much more.  What really took the game from just another ARK expansion to, the potential mmo of the decade, was getting out on our first schooner, the SS Skjoldr (video below).  The experience was entirely PvE, but when you have 13 people packed on to a single vessel and the guys repairing the ship are as vital as the helmsman steering and the deckhands manning the sails, it became something I haven't seen in a game since our friday night flights on the Decimator back in SWG.
We have had just a blast learning the game and surviving our island and our neighbors over the past couple weeks.  Though it may appear as if we are well off enough, growing from 30 actives day one, to more than double that now, we absolutely could use more folks interested in living the Atlas life.  Whether you are interested in navigating the high seas, captaining a brigand, farming the tundra, mucking through politics, taming elephants or exploring the massive (30-40 hours of sailing from one end to the other) world, it is all here and we have many members willing to help you get started.
Here is a few screencaps and videos to give you an idea of what we have been up to:

    CotP and Fallout 76

    Fallout 76's full release date was announced at Bethesda's E3 conference, and it's coming this year on November 14th, 2018 on PC

    Now, please feel free to rewind your gaming memory to June, 2015...

    ARK: Survival Evolved's early release showed up on Steam, and surprised the heck out of most CotP members, including myself.  Despite the server stability and networking issues, the game was quite a hit with CotP members and certainly made a lasting impact on this community.

    While Fallout 76 is not sneaking up on anyone who doesn't live under a rock, I am personally hoping for another CotP adventure filled with good times akin to our experience in the early days of ARK's early release.  I hope to meet plenty of CotP gamers who I haven't had the opportunity to game with in the past, and potentially add a few new names to my eternal (short)  list of people I generally pretend to like.  Similar to ARK, I also expect we will have enough participation to garner some internal competition....(hopefully a change from the standard Throne's team vs Damis' team we generally end up in).

    We do not have any plans for an official CotP group in the current BETA, however, as always, we will rely on our established team of early testers to give us a head start on how the game plays and where the early focus needs to be.

    The group forum is up and open to whomever would like to join in on the discussions and plans.

    I’m concerned about my pc. I already planned on upgrading my GPU from a 760 gtx 2gb to a 1060 gtx 6gb but I’m worried about my processor. Running an I5 4670k and I don’t know if that’s enough. Really don’t want to drop $600 before I can even play the game

    I'm planning on buying this, but I may hold off for a bit before getting into it. I just started playing Destiny 2 and ordered the expansion for it. Together with WoW, that'll keep me busy for a while.

    I got a chance to try out Fallout 76 during one of the Beta events... It definitely has some solid gameplay.  I was really looking forward to this one, but I think I'll end up postponing my purchase for now.  The new Ark expansion dropped last night, so I'll be busy with that for the forseeable future. All in all though, Fallout 76 has some serious potential.  It felt like they took the strong storyline and other popular aspects of Fallout gameplay, and then shifted the style of the game to be more survival-focused like 7 Days to Die.

    Keep us all posted on what you guys think of the game as you play!
