Minimalist, he looks like me, only 20 years younger

In my plan for July i wrote that i want to finish the first zone in Secret World Legends, so i did, instead of playing other games i focused on SWL and that payed off, i did all the missions in Kingsmouth Town zone, i also did my first dungeon ever in this game, solo!

But first, if you don’t know the game, Secret World Legends is a new version of The Secret World, an MMO developed and published by Funcom, SWL changed the business model so it is free to play now, and changed the combat system which was a source for many complains in TSW, many people love the game but they didn’t like the combat and the animations, so Funcom tried to improve those in SWL.

Secret World is a unique MMO, first it happen in our world, it’s not some fantasy world made up by someone, in the game you go to places like Egypt, Japan, London .. etc, in this world all conspiracy theories are true, mix that with legends and all kind of myths and cultures, add some fantasy elements and you get this amazing game, you don’t play this game for the combat or the leveling experience, you play it for the storytelling.

Unlike other MMOs, some missions in SWL ask you to search, to think hard about the puzzles, the game have a browser inside it so you can search google for answers! sometimes the answer is in the Bible, sometimes in Wikipedia, and sometimes you have to visit websites made by Funcom just for the game, fictional websites, like Orochi Group website, you have to search it to find answers.

The game is for adults i have to warn you, i never liked horror movies, i hate horror, violence, gore .. etc, for that reason i’ll never play many games or watch many movies, but SWL is an exception of this rule, the storytelling is worth it.

The first story have 3 zones, i’m done with one of them, i think i can finish the other 2 zones if i focus only on playing SWL, but for now i prefer to go away and spend my time with a book or two, the game have to wait.

  1. Thank you for the info on what the game is really about πŸ™‚ I didn’t know it at all.

    Playing a game for the storytelling is very appealing to me; And how cool with the browser inside the game too.

    How much horror is there in the game? The game must be very good, if you are not into horror at all, but still decide to play πŸ™‚

    1. There is enough horror in the game to make me stop playing some times, it’s nothing like FPS games like Fallout or Doom, to get a better idea i suggest this play list by MassivelyOP, MJ did many streams for the game, you can watch any of them:

      To be honest i’m easily scared by games and movies πŸ™‚ that’s why i prefer comedy, sit-coms .. you know, happy bright things πŸ˜€

      1. Ooh, thank you for the link, that gives a better idea of it for sure.

        Ah, I can easily relate to that, I am the same way. I get easily affected by such things in games and movies too, so I stick strictly to “feel good and maybe laugh a little”-shows, series, and movies, πŸ™‚
