Fine Whirl - Prime World Review

   (Note: The faction I joined was Dokht, the character I used was Duelist.)

   Prime World is a hybrid MOBA/City-Building game created and hosted by Nival, currently in open beta and compatible with Facebook. It takes place in a broken world at war with two factions fighting for control over a magical, water-like power source called "Prime". You join either the Dokht Imperium or the Kingdom of Adornia to participate in the endless fight against the other side. You aren't fighting the fight yourself, of course. You enlist the help of special, Prime-powered heroes as a wealthy castle lord that puts them to work.

The heroes may be rich, but I'm the guy that signs their checks.
   If you had any doubts about Prime World because it's a MOBA, then don't worry. It's pretty casual. There isn't a lot to take in starting off and the learning curve is very comfortable. If you have ever played a MOBA, such as League of Legends or DotA 2, then this game will seem very easy to you. That said, it can get really addictive for what it does differently from other games. Let's see what those are...

Issues With Firefall - Minipost

   An anonymous commenter requested that I do a review over Firefall. Regardless of how dead the site seems or how busy I am, I will still be taking any requests seriously. However, I can't do a review over Firefall at the moment because of a significant graphics error that seems to only be affecting me and my computer. The glitch is detailed in this video:

   I'll be using this same video to try to get some help and fix this issue, but unless it gets fixed I can't review the game. It's distracting, it hinders my performance, and any screenshots I take would be messed up. This is the only game I've played to date that has had a problem like this on my computer, and while I would like to just get a new computer, I don't have the money for that. I apologize Anonymous and if you want to request any other game please don't hesitate to do so.
