BFF Report - DC Universe Online
2011/01/07 at 1:34 PM
I got to play this game back at E3, and the PVP was ssiiickkk. It felt like playing Unreal Tournament (and for good reasons), but with superhero capabilities. Unfortunately, due to some weird beta quirks, I wasn't able to get involved in the gameplay aspects of the game.
The good news: John Smedley, CEO of Sony Online Entertainment, watched the show and wants to hook me up with some gametime when it goes live since beta go rough towards the end there (as they tend to do). Next week I'm going to be covering RIFT (which Im
live streaming today
from 10-4pm PST), but after that I'm open to suggestions.. Would you guys be interested in a follow up episode to cover gameplay mechanics and pvp in DCUO?
BFF Report - Top 5 Most Controversial Games of 2010
2010/12/30 at 3:09 PM
While you guys were out having a good time with the Loot King, I was running all over the MMO-verse keeping up with the latest it had to offer. By proxy, I was also absorbing all the crazy crap that some of these developers do and figured it would be fitting to package it all up nicely into one big fat.. er.. fony report.
p.s. A message from Darnell
regarding Tol Barad
.. he doesn't sound too happy.

BFF Report - Cataclysm - Life After 80
2010/11/23 at 11:40 AM
Servers are down and when they come back up, you'll all be enjoying the freshly Norris'd landscape of Azeroth. In the meantime, why not start planning your post-80 leveling experience? Need some help? WELL I JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE SOMETHIN' FOR THAT!
What's the first thing you plan on doing when servers come up?
And if you're from the future, what's the first thing you did when servers came up?
Cataclysm: Old World Zone Changes
2010/11/23 at 9:02 AM
As you probably know by now,
patch 4.0.3a includes a complete restructuring of old-world content
. This ranges from
modifications to the leveling flow throughout both continents
. These changes have been documented in our handy-dandy
, but since we're all waiting for the servers to come up, we figured a primer might be appreciated.
Check out the information after the break, complete with some
entertaining videos covering the new race starting zones

2010/11/11 at 12:47 PM
Following up on last week's Alliance starting zone review, I have a shiny new BFF Report FOR THE HORDE (cwutidid?). In this episode, we get the inside scoop on each race, some funky beta bugs and the best FREE companion pet.. Darnell.
I'm happy to report that last week's episode on the Alliance zones broke a record in views for the BFF Report. Thanks everyone for watching!
...now lets see if the Horde episode can beat the Alliance record..hehe ;)
BFF Report - Get You Some Cata Starting Zone Action
2010/11/04 at 7:41 PM
I know you guys have questions concerning Cataclysm...
Should I server first something?
Should I farm up some herbs and dominate the AH?
Do I like cookies?
Should I reroll?
These are all very important, and in some cases, life changing questions. The answers to these are:
No, unless you're doing the digital download, have it preloaded and have lots of Bawls.
Yes, but herbs may not be the way to go...
Hell yes you like cookies! As a matter of fact, you like oatmeal cookies. What's this? You don't? WELL YOU DO NOW.
This is a tough one, because unlike the above, I can't make this decision for you.
That's why I'm putting in the time to get you through the
first hour or so of gameplay
for each race and condensing it down to an easily digestible
8 minutes and 42 seconds
Starting with the Alliance...

BFF Report - Yes, More Completely Necessary 4.0.1 Coverage
2010/10/14 at 3:50 PM
We haven't crammed your feeds with enough 4.0.1 coverage, right? Hopefully, my short and concise to-do list fits the void that all of you have within.. you know, that space that yearns for more chinhawk. ;)
So what's the plan for the next several weeks?
BFF Report - Warhammer Online Is The Next WoW Killer... Oh Wait..
2010/09/30 at 8:59 PM
We hear this from time to time about whatever various games are coming out, but nothing compared to when Warhammer and AoC were announced. For those that were around, it was a mad frenzy of long time tabletop Warhammer players that were on a hate spree in the forums. Now that the game is offering their 'Endless Free Trial', which allows players to experience some of the games features and level to Rank 10, I decided to give it a shot and see just how awesomazing this game was.
For those that don't know, WoW has managed to withstand the 'brutal loss' of its many subscribers to these various 'killers'. For the most part, I think we all agree that the only think that will bring down the game will be Blizzard themselves, or time. Besides those two factors, what single event/game/occurance, do
think will have the largest impact on the population? No, 2012 is not an answer.
Final Fantasy XIV, and I Didn't Even Have to Mention the Lack of Jump
2010/09/21 at 5:32 PM
I think I have just finished probably one the most controversial MMOs in recent history. You either hate this game or you love it, there is virtually no middle ground here. Also, their fans are not afraid to speak out against the "WoW Fanboys" citing the repeating caves as their sole defense for massive chunks of repeating terrain in the game's open world. There is no doubt that regardless of what anyone says, Final Fantasy XIV is going to be successful. Which is totally fine, but that certainly doesn't give it immunity from a BFF Report style ribbing.
WoW is always the game that defending fans of other titles associate their opposition with, what do you guys think of that? Especially after seeing this episode, do you think that WoW compares/is better/is dated?
Hit me up on
and let me know what you think. I'm out on vacation celebrating my annual old day. WOOOO!
One Rick to Roll Them All (aka BFF Report - LotRO)
2010/09/14 at 7:16 PM
I know what you're thinking, "Where the #@$% is my Final Fantasy XIV BFF Report?!" Unfortunately, there has been another delay in our age
and it will come out SOON. That's not to take away from Lord of the Rings Online, though. It recently went F2P and I wanted to get in there and see just how much crap I could find under it's protective Cloak of Tolkiencibility. I'm also dropping it early because next Tuesday is going to be FFXIV BFFR DDAY.
Mark your calendars. >:D
