DC Universe Online

Aliens, crime and greed: It's Christmas in DCUO

6:30 PM on 12.13.2011 // Fraser Brown

With the festive season upon us it's time for MMOs to tempt us into ignoring our families and celebrations in favor of new content and Christmas trinkets. DC Universe Online has perfectly captured the holiday spirit with it's latest update, Season's Greetings. Larfleeze, the greedy and hideous leader of the Orange Lanterns, has stolen Christmas presents, most likely in an effort to become the Grinch of the DC Universe.

Hal Jordan and Sinestro have tasked heroes and villains with getting the presents from Larfleeze and his orange constructs. As well as hunting down stolen gifts, there's a new PvP map for those who like to spend the season fighting each other and vendor and market place items such as reindeer antlers. The update is already live and it's free for all players.

Here's Santa's list for DCUO:

  • Larfleeze Sightings: Players can receive a Feat if they can spot Larfleeze lurking about Metropolis or Gotham City once a day for, of course, 12 days in a row.
  • Watchtower PVP Map: Players can battle it out in a new 5v5 death-match arena located in the Watchtower.

New Holiday Marketplace Items: 

  • Festive Winter Hat - Do you have a jolly side? Have you been wanting to show off your festive spirit? Does your head get cold in that brisk winter air? If so, then this Festive Winter Hat is for you! 
  • Reindeer Antlers - Oh, deer! Declare your appreciation for these beloved holiday animals by wearing your very own set of Reindeer Antlers.

New Holiday Vendor Items:

  • Holiday weapon appearances to give your weapon a sweet new look
  • New Holiday Elf outfit set
  • Snowman form trinket
  • Holiday snowglobe grenade

I was playing MGSV, doing a Mine Clearing Side Op and saw a bear. I pelted it with tranq bullets, few seconds later it ran into a mine and blew up, alerting the enemies in the process. Holy shit I love this game.

The wait for Dragon Quest Heroes is killing me. AR challenges in Arkham Knight do not fill the void! Not even Cat-woman's nice butt can fill the void. These 3 days will be a trial. :(

A client tipped me $50 today at a job site, which lead to me only spending $10 + tax for Dragon Quest Heroes. Slime time baby.

Daily VGM #22 (Witcher 2) - Pam Pa Ram (The Witcher 3) [youtube][/youtube] Instant classic 10/10. It's a travesty it wasn't included in the soundtrack. Maybe CDPR is preparing for a special second disc release? I sure hope
Oh, look at that, the rough draft I choose not to delete of this paper I need to do! I can keep adding to that instead of starting over and getting frustrated and quitting. What a novel concept!

I'm coming to realize my time off from blogging has made the progress I made at being succinct fade away into nothingness, as the world will see in about an hour. I also made Valkyrie Drive's boobs even more boring at Japanator last night! Somehow.
Apparently, Kero Blaster got an update... Neat.

Season 2 of Fargo is out, and of course Fargo isn't Fargo without dumbass criminals, tragedy and black comedy mixed into one package. BTW, the Organic Mechanic is in this season.
