Age of Conan: "A Slight Exaggeration"
Posted: Thursday May 29th, 2008 by

In Age of Conan, when you pull off particularly vicious combos or manage to land a nasty killing blow... blood goes everywhere. It splatters on the screen. Maybe not to the extent the comic implies, but it's enough to make you take notice. The first time it happened to me in-game I thought someone was beating the crap out of me, not the other way around.

I'll admit the blood effects amuse me. They're well done and I delight in the occassional decapitation after I've been killed in virtually the same spot four times in a row while I slowly thin out mobs. At any rate, this comic is a departure from a joke idea Sanct sent to me. I wanted to give him some kudos and a thanks even though I didn't really use what he wrote. (Sorry about that.)

Oh and thanks to the kind folks at Eidos as well. They sent me AoC a couple of days ago. Otherwise, I'd still be on the outside looking in, making blood splatter and nipple jokes. Psshh! Who am I kidding? I'll be making blood splater and nipple jokes anyway.
