Better than any MMO

UnleadedRevUnleadedRev Boston, MAPosts: 387Member Uncommon

I have been playing PC Games since 1992 and MMOs since 1999....

I FINALLY saw the light and cancelled both my Secret World and Guild Wars 2 purchases, as my friends and I are sick of the way MMOs are designed and play out as well as subscription based models.

Here is what we have been playing and enjoying more than any MMO ever!

Free Lancer Discovery RP 24/7 (persistant world):

One of the many MOD/Servers for Freelancer, which "Chris Roberts" designed and Microsoft ruined, but was saved by the modding community and is considered the best space game ever by many, kind of plays like "EVE Light":

    Cancelling pre purchases is kind of the point of a pre purchase...

    Seriously, how did you cancel your pre-purchase? I didn't think it was possible.

    That's pre-order, which is different from pre-purchase.

    ArenaNet gives you a full refund, no questions asked, on pre-purchases if you purchase directly from them.

    Only 9.99 on amazon. nice.

     

    BUUUUUUUUUT this guy right here said this about the game,  

    "Idols, huge statues of the devil at space ports. Trading area. Obviously, Idolizing, glamorizing, and showing devil worship... Way Evil!!! Don't recommend!!! Doesn't work on win 7 unless u have win 7 pro with XP adapter. Not worth buying this blasphemous, sacrilegious foul waste...."

    Yes I played SWTOR.

    Can you please explain for non-initiated?

    Is this more like Free Allegiance or more like Eve Online?

    Do i have to buy the Freelancer game to play this?

    What steps do i exactly take to try it out?

    What is this about? What do you do in this... Discovery RP?

    That guy takes things to seriously, if he is offended by statues that look like "the devil" than he shouldn't even be playing games in the first place. And it should work fine on any Win 7. Just run it in compatiblity mode for XP.

    One of the few games that actually got space combat somewhat right. I never tried any of the mods or even multiplayer, but it's definently a great game. If it had a little more depth in trading/ship customization and such like the X series does, it would be perfect.
