Pixelated Zen Plays DCUO Episode 005!

Episode 5 is out, and it’s interesting. It’s the first attempt at an on the fly commentary style, and I failed by having the audio about 5 seconds off. Still, episode 6 audio is fine, but I no longer have the original video for episode 5 so I can’t fix the audio problem. Sorry, it’s still enjoyable, just a few moments of weirdness that you may or may not notice.

My DCUO Superheroes pt. 2

Continuing with the second part of this post, this is the rest of the heroes I currently have. More will probably be incoming one day.

pixelzendcuomrgneiss001

Mr. Gneiss(Pronounced: Nice, it’s a type of rock as well)

Powers: Earth

Role: DPS/Offtank

Weapon: Two-Handed (Hammer)

Mentor: Superman

Backstory: Still working on the backstory for Mr. Gneiss. Obviously given powers by the Exobytes, but beyond that I’m still undecided.

pixelzendcuogravenchill001

Graven Chill

Powers: Ice

Role: Tank

Weapon: Shield

Mentor: Superman

Backstory: Graven Chill was dead for weeks, murdered and mummified by the Cult of Crime for some bizarre ritual. When the exobytes found his corpse he was infused with the powers of Frost, and given everlasting life. This immediately brought him back from dead-dead, to now be partly dead. As he likes to call it: Partly Not Dead.

pixelzendcuosentientwill001

Sentient Will

Powers: Light(Green Lantern)

Role: Controller

Weapon: Dual-Wield (Nightwing style Escrima Sticks)

Mentor: Superman

Backstory: Sentient Will is actually a Green Lantern ring given sentience. It’s former owner, a Meta named Madam Miracle, met her husband after being drafted into the Green Lantern Corps. Years later they were married and lived a happy life patrolling their sectors, meeting in the middle for off time when they could. Her husband was murdered before her eyes by a Sinestro Corps member and the sight drove her insane. She killed the Sinestro Corps soldier, then retreated to her home planet where she worked without sleep. Her ring has been in close contact with his, and with him. She fiddled with it, using her supreme will to create a living, sentient being of pure will that looked, acted and had much of the knowledge of her husband. The two fled her sector, knowing they would be persecuted. They lived on backwater worlds for years until they heard that the Sinestro Corps member who had murdered the original Will has survived his wounds and was now on a planet called Earth. Madam Miracle could not let that affront slide, and the two set out for Earth.

Pixelated Zen Plays: DC Universe Online Episode 001!

So, I made a video, and this time it’s got commentary. I’ve never really done this before so it’s pretty basic and this first episode isn’t very good. Still, I’ve learned a lot along the way and the follow up videos should be much better. I know that the sound is off, that I say “Um” far too often (working on it!), and that there is no title screen/custom music. Still, for a first go, it’s not altogether terrible. This episode follows Kwahu in the first tutorial area of DCUO, the Brainiac Harvester Ship. Leave a comment and help me get better!

Good Morning DC Universe

Today is one of my favorite days: It’s Vault day! In DC Universe Online, as a premium account, I have access to the Vault once every three days. I can go on each of my characters, and it’s basically a smash and grab. You run through a small Joker themed level breaking boxes and collecting money, loot and sometimes very rare costume pieces. I’ve gotten lucky sometimes, but it’s not often. Most of the rare stuff I get is T-Shirts and Hoodies with specific heroes logo’s on them, like a Flash T-Shirt that is red with the lightning bolt symbol on the front. Still, it’s one of my favorite things in the game, just a very small part of it but so much fun. I’ve included a video below, the audio isn’t what I want, but I’m going to work on that. Enjoy.
