It’s been a right good long time since I last posted. Reason number one: my family has moved away from Japan and back into the good old US of A. Feels good to be home. I’ve taken a lot of time to get fat and happy on all these American restaurants I’d been missing for the last 4-plus years. During this time, I haven’t played any MMOGs – in fact, I missed Children’s Week again! The only dang achievements I am missing for the world event meta. But the future is looking up.

Enter The Secret World. Should the beta prove it’s worth, TSW will be the next MMOG Die by the Arrow chronicles. It’s exciting as TSW looks to be taking a whole new approach to how MMOGs are played. Minimal tab targeting, story-driven mission progression (no more “quest hubs”), skill-based player progression, and absolutely no arbitrary levels. This is really the first MMOG I’ve been excited about since Vanguard. You can bet on the fact that once the NDA is lifted, plenty of news and redirects will be found right here at DBTA.

By the way, if you haven’t yet joined The Secret War, TSW’s Facebook app, there’s still two weeks left! Head over to the DBTA Facebook page, find the pinned post about defending the USA, and click “join the secret war” to earn in-game rewards. If there was any question, the Illuminati is my faction of choice! Don’t forget to like the page while you are there if you haven’t already.

In other news, Diablo 3 is nearing release. Unfortunately I never got a beta invite, so I’m still holding some reservations. I was never a big fan of the predecessors, but I have heard many goods things about D3. Should Blizzard launch any sort of free trial, I will definitely be giving it a fair shake. And if anyone has a buddy key to share, feel free to send it my way!
