  • Let's face it the vast majority of these boards are populated with variations of the same 6 or 7 threads. The OP has, in my opinion, a well written but poorly disguised Solo vs. Grouping post within a chronological construct. 'Why solo in an mmorpg…
  • Originally posted by crack_fox Nothing captures the pioneering spirit of modern man like pre-ordering a video games console.  I normally don't make posts like this but... Bwahahaha! Thank you for that. Ok, carry on.
  • As far as MMO jumping, I think many people obviously enjoy the 'new' factor in terms of art, game theme, lore, combat mechanics, etc. (however small the differences) but they also like the buildup more than the endgame-shiny-grind which is better se…
  • I'm one of the few who actually really liked Tabula Rasa
  • Originally posted by nariusseldon Originally posted by kkarrabbass Who are you to impose your narrow vision on another person gameplay. No one can impose their views on others. I doubt any mind is being changed here.It boils down to different peo…
  • Originally posted by udon Originally posted by tommygunzII How many of these games can you win without paying anything? Excluding P2P. You expect developers to all line up to give 100% of the game out for free with no restrictions and hope they ca…
  • One thing that isn't mentioned often is that many of these 'advantages' are available to subscription paying players for free due to a monthly bonus of 'coins/points'. It tends to change the math quite a bit. In other words, every subbed player ha…
  • I'm surprised there has been no mention of LotRO. Healing is robust there with interesting classes and the graphics still hold up.
  • Originally posted by Drakha Originally posted by SBFord Originally posted by bcbully Your #1 is completely wrong in the case of Age of Wushu. You essentially will not progress solo. The game does not apologize for this either. The impl…
  • Originally posted by Cephus404 Honestly, the only thing that would keep me playing most games is the quality of the other players.  I really have a major problem with the majority of people playing modern games.  Back in the day, I played a  bunch o…
  • Originally posted by VikingGamer Different people play for different reasons but I will agree that one of the biggest of those reasons is "competition for accolades."  This has ever been true since at least the ancient Olympic games. Unfortunately …
  • You may want to dip your toes in and try to play around with some ideas in programs like RPG Maker, etc. I think there is a demo and there are some free alternatives. I would also recommend a shot at making your own pen and paper rpg just to flesh …
  • The interesting thing about low magic worlds is that the main characters are usually the ones interacting with the supposedly rare magic. While the world at large may not even believe in magic these characters interact with it as a factor in the sto…
  • In essence much of this argument at its core is not about the capacity for the older gamer to adapt to 'advancement' in the industry or whether the genre itself has advanced at all. What it really comes down to is whether you support the ongoing arg…
  • I know that it seems to many that a sandbox must allow for nearly unlimited exploration but I think a sandbox should simply allow someone to create their own 'content' within a given framework of internal rules. Create your own factions, economy, ar…
  • Originally posted by Roxtarr If a friend logs in and doesn't respond, the first thing I do is text them in RL to make sure it's really them.   Your friend is thinking "Man, I can't just jump on and craft or explore for a bit without somebody textin…
  • Originally posted by Abuz0r Apparently most of the responses didn't bother to read the article.  I don't think the OP has played any Elder Scrolls games.  This article is not good for ESO.  Please read my elder scrolls insider take on the classless…
  • You would think that people who go out of their way to post on a website devoted to MMO coverage and discussion might be able to determine the nature of the class system with a quick search or by simply reading the article in question. Ugh. I guess…
  • Originally posted by Kyleran MMORPG combat has never traditionally been about being fair and balanced, in fact quite the opposite, it usually has some means for a player to get a leg up on the competition via level disparities, improved gear, more s…
  • Originally posted by GrumpyMel2 The basic hit point system is certainly something that has been functional (on some level) for a very long time. However, that doesn't mean it's the only way to slice an egg or couldn't stand some variation. As for "f…
