TERA’s 6th Anniversary

Over the summer, TERA, the MMORPG developed by Bluehole Studio and published by En Masse Entertainment in North America, celebrated it’s 6th Anniversary. This was a game I played a lot in 2012 when it first released, but had only sporadically picked up since then largely due to not really liking any of the classes in the game. However, back in 2017, the female-only, Castanic class Valkyrie was released. I think I tried it out back then for a few levels, but this summer is when I really gave it a chance. Due to changes in XP, I quickly leveled to 45 before I moved on to other things, namely a focus on Final Fantasy console games. Valkyrie is a class I love to play in TERA, and I was disappointed when I found out it wasn’t yet available on consoles. Unlike Wildstar, TERA is a game I definitely plan to return to. Logging on today, I found that servers had merged since the summer, which allowed me to grab a bunch of names I’d lost or wanted over the years. Though it’s not a game I can literally come back to today, with any luck I’ll get some game time in with it this Christmas season.

Now where was I?

Anyway, this is to say my gamelog has moved over to cablepunk.wordpress.com, so please keep up with my gaming adventures there.


Goodbye, Wildstar

Having heard NCSOFT and Carbine Studios plan to shut down Wildstar, I recently re-downloaded it to say farewell.

Wildstar never really was my thing, but it was a quality game, and I’m sure some people really liked its style and tone. So, this shuttering of the game is a shame.

I know I must have rerolled a few times. My current character of Xylene Nox only made it to level 11. Apparently, based on my achievements, I played some PvP at one time. I do recall a giant pit in the ground as part of a PvP stage. What I remember most, though, is PvE leveling in some frozen area. Like I said, Wildstar was never really my thing. Had it managed to stick around, it’s something I might have gotten back to eventually, but very doubtfully.

Anyway, goodbye, Wildstar.

Please keep up with my gamelog at its new home here.

RIFT: Meridian


Most of the screenshots in this site’s gamelog are images that were originally posted to my personal Tumblr. At some point, I used WordPress to rip them from Tumblr and import them to this site. In some cases, I have updated or added the text associated with them.

Many of the screenshots from Rift — those designated as “Rift Snapshot” below the pic — were created while playing the game and using a custom macro to post from within the game client directly to Tumblr. These posts should have in-game location data associated with them in the form of tags. This was a pretty cool feature years ago, and while many of the pics might not have the best composition or lighting, they do serve as a log as to where I was in the virtual world of Telara, and when. Most of the posts with screenshots containing the game’s UI have been deleted as they were created automatically by unlocking achievements.

Going forward, any video game screenshots I post in the form of a gamelog will be done on the Cablepunk WordPress.
