2015 is the year we’re showcasing cool stuff. So far, we’ve brought you some really cool Warcraft resources: Healiocentric, Bad WoW Videos, and Master Plan. But we’re gamers and play more than just Warcraft. We spend too many hours playing League of Legends too. Even still, we’re always on the lookout for new games. Today’s spotlight is on a new free-to-play team shooter, Nosgoth, since I have a bunch of friends pinging me to get in the open beta with them today!
One thing you may know about me, I’m bad at this thing called… aiming. Mr. Robot, on the other hand, is an all-out aim-bot. So the two of us teamed up together evens the playing field. Still, I’m hoping to try out some of the special abilities, like raining down arrows for some AoE.
Or maybe I’ll love some of the vampire skills. “The best part of my entire experience with Nosgoth is probably the ability to run up walls as a vampire, and get just about anywhere you need to go. I was in many tense situations where I dropped in on a human only to find that he had friends at the ready to ambush me, and quickly retreated up a giant castle to disappear into the darkness.” -Destructoid
The other thing that makes me excited for this game is the developers are focusing on the community. I’ve mentioned this in a few podcasts before: one of the reasons World of Warcraft is so successful is their involvement with the community. Nosgoth has a few blog posts and an open letter in appreciation of the community. And since I’ve seen some official Nosgoth people post on the Nosgoth reddit, I have a feeling they really are taking the right approach.
It hit open beta today on Steam, so I’ll be trying it out later tonight for sure. If you want to check out some gameplay, Swiftor on Twitch streams for 6-8 hours a day. I’ve been watching him, it looks like a lot of fun (you know, assuming I can aim!)
