Nude rock thief vs gem in New World’s preview

New World had a preview week back in August, and I’ve been meaning to share this gem (pun intended) of a clip that features a nude rock thief stealing gem’s rocks. (That’s less confusing when you know that ‘gem’ is the name of someone who prefers it lowercase.)

This post was originally posted to my WoW blog, Kor’kron 501st, which also covers other Blizzard games and MMOs.

Unfortunately, I only recorded her microphone and not mine because, well, I make mistakes. But somehow I think it makes it more hilarious.

In this clip, you can see me go through some of the introduction area. You can see a bit of the combat mechanics and skills as well as a gorgeous look at the island.

Bye, Bugg! (Because Crucible is shutting down.)

Last week, Amazon announced that Crucible is shutting down in a month. That’s really too bad, because I definitely enjoyed it personally. Most of all, I’ll miss Bugg, my favorite character. He’s a gardener robot who once grew food on Crucible. He was happy that everyone loved his food. But once the fighting started, he had to grow weapons (plant-based turrets) and fight even though he didn’t want to fight. I decided to capture Bugg’s lore before the servers go offline.

Here’s his War Machine skin, which I unlocked by completing the pre-season (and only) battle pass.

This video shows Bugg’s biography and all of his unlockable audio file logs, which gives a full view of his lore. I love Bugg’s voice-acting!

This second video shows all of Bugg’s customization – mostly his awesome skins. I prefer Ladybug!

Lastly, this video shows some extra dialogue that can be heard if Bugg is clicked repeatedly on the character select screen.

I’ll miss you, Bugg!

Crucible’s Bugg is awesome and cute!

Bugg, the Crucible hero, is super cute, and I had to record this audio log. In game, he grows little plants that attack enemies. In lore, he used to be a gardening robot who was happy that people liked his vegetables!

This is his Honey Bee skin. I want it!

Here’s a closer look at it even though you can’t see the wings.

His Garden Grower skin is pretty cute too!

Joining Amazon Games

I joined Amazon Games a couple weeks ago as a technical writer on the Automation, Tools, and Insights team. I mentioned it on Kor’kron 501st, my other blog, where I talk about World of Warcraft and other MMOs and Blizzard games due to Amazon Games having a new MMO called New World coming out soon. I wanted to mention it here as well because I’ll talk about non-MMOs on this blog.

Crucible is a hero-based shooter released last week developed by Relentless Studios and published by Amazon Games. I don’t have much experience with this genre, but I’ve been playing it a lot this past week and really enjoying it. I included the trailer at the top!
