RuneScape Gold Strategy Guide Review

New to runescape, or having trouble getting as much gold as you need? Then this book will get your quickly started, making money, and understanding and exploring the game.

As someone who had spent quite some time in World of Warcraft, starting at the beginning, and slowly going through quests, earning small amounts of gold, only to find better ways later on, I found this book very helpful for RuneScape. You can skip all the time of trying to figure out the intricacies of the game itself, which will sometimes slow down, and even ruin your experience as you become frustrated.

The author provides information about the advantages, disadvantages and limitations of using a free vs. paid account, so you can decide early on which is the right one for you, and what won’t be included in the free version.
The book goes into different choices you can make that will affect how well you earn gold, such as choosing between the many gathering skills, artisan skills, and which things you should buy vs. craft, and how to decide.

Besides teaching different ways to earn gold based on time, he also teaches other useful information, such as how to prepare and go through dungeons, getting the most money through trading, and even how to avoid scams that you are likely to come across.

Overall, if you are new to MMORPG’s, or just looking to earn gold faster than you’re used to, this is a comprehensive book to get you started, and succeeding in Runescape.

Game Competitions

There are a couple game competitions that I know of right now, and I wanted to share with everyone.

Jonathan Harbour RTS game contest for beginners
(Due 12/25/2011) Jonathan Harbour has a contest for beginners to develop their own real time strategy(RTS) game, and has some prizes as well.

It would be a good excuse to work on a new game, and you don’t even have to have scrolling- just one screen. Don’t let that fool you though, any game project still requires work and determination 😀

1st Place Prize: App Game Kit (AGK) – Retail value: $112!

2nd Place Prize: $30 voucher for the TGC Store!

Intel Level Up 2011
(Due 3/19/2012) Also, the “Intel Level Up 2011” game competition is finally up. It’s almost 2012, but the prizes are pretty nice, though the competition is not just beginners, but also includes students and Indie companies.

Level Up 2011 Competition

My RTS WIP
I’m currently working on the RTS one, and you can see my latest demo here(although fill in graphics, and lots of bugs still – but a week to finish :D):

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is coming out in May!

One of my favorite RPG’s in the past few years was the surprise hit “The Witcher”.

That will be the game I am looking forward to the most this year, and can’t wait to play it!

The game is also published DRM free, which means when you buy and support the game, you’ll also be letting publishers know you like games that do not hamper paying customers experience!

The first one was an awesome game, and the next one looks even better. Dynamic gameplay, dynamic story generation, and 16 different endings!

Adults only, since this game actually is a more “full RPG” type game- including many aspects of reality to bring a more realistic experience to the player.

Check it out, if you haven’t played the first one, get it – best RPG game since Diablo 2, and much deeper gameplay!
