The Best of Bio Break 2013 is a series of “end of the year” lists that talk about various forms of entertainment that I enjoyed this year. They’re not awards, but they are ranked. Each entry doesn’t have to be something that came out this year, but merely something I encountered this year.
1. The Secret World: Tokyo
I. Am. Ready. Heck, the entire playerbase is ready by now. 2013 was a great year of updates for TSW, with awesome and memorable story arcs, but we’re still in the same three areas that we were at launch. It’s time to move on, and that will come when Funcom opens up Tokyo. I really can’t wait for this — for more story, more conspiracies, and more answers.
2. LOTRO Housing Update
Turbine punted on this in 2013 after promising that they’d do it, so I’m going to hold them to that. Also hoping we’ll be getting a new expansion as well. Gondor time!
3. RIFT 3.0
I keep flirting with the idea of going back to RIFT, starting fresh and really getting invested in the game (and then I remember, oh yeah, WildStar). But I’m somewhat interested to see what Trion has in store for the game’s second expansion, currently titled RIFT 3.0. “Dreams, nightmares, and water” are the themes.
4. A post-Scarlet Guild Wars 2
Yeah, I’m pretty much disconnected from the living story right now, but the news that it’ll be ending after four more updates is reason to hope that the second “season” will vastly learn from the errors of the past and usher back in the fun and excitement of Guild Wars 2 that I enjoyed in its first year.
5. More Neverwinter classes
I know that the team is working on additional classes for the game, and I really hope we get them sooner rather than later. I’d like to see a different type of magic user as well as another healer. Bard? Bard would rock. I’d so be there if they did Bard.
