  • Destiny 2 Playerbase Has Dropped By Over 2 Million Users Since Launch

    Doesn't the exact same thing happen in World of Warcraft after every expansion? And a resounding NO to the idea that an FPS would ever revolutionize the MMO genre. I'm pretty sure Planetside 1 and 2 are proof of that. FPS are probably the most notorious genre for cheaters and even if you add RPG or an MMO experience to that, you still have a shit core.

    I really despise weekday launches, why don't companies launch on Friday so we can make it a good long weekend :) Bungie isn't alone in this, seems like lots of good titles have released during the week.



    They know most people will be at work or the servers would crash with everyone trying to start the weekend by logging in as soon as possible. At least in my time zone...
    That and who wants to work all weekend fixing servers? I'd rather do that during the workweek too, lol.

  • Epic Cracks Its Knuckles Ready to Fight As It Takes Two Players to Court for Cheating - Fortnite - M

    I'm not Korean and I've never played a Korean version of a game, but I've heard they have to use the equivalent of what the US refers to as our social security number to identify themselves when playing games. I'm just curious if that systematic approach to permanently banning players works or not and why that isn't used in other countries, specifically the U.S.

    Only two things for me,gem slots,so old now need something more creative.Skills...purchased,again an old idea that is just wrong.I guess if we wanted to akin it to learning for example Karate from some teacher you would pay but it would not be the act of paying that learns the skill which is the way some games like this are portraying it.



    Not sure what to think of the nemesis system,i don't feel it makes any sense,it is like some auto generation system?I watched some combat videos,the Ai looks really bad.



    To me the game sort of looks like a DnD design,with the auto generation,similar type world eventually i would assume the repeated models just as in the Dnd online game gets old as they look the same just using a different name tag.



    The world looks ok but like dnd online most of the world is just a fake backdrop.



    Overall i can see some fun factor ,so i understand why someone might like the game,the stealth/parkour idea is good although just like a game i play Dishonored,at times is a bit fake in that enemies don't see you when really they should.



    Where would i rate it...hmmm well i don't feel that it looks good enough to warrant a purchase,it looks ok but again similar to dnd online,i played a bit but got bored soon after.I'd give it a 6/10.

    I had to read this twice just to make sure I understood exactly how you reviewed this game and gave it a 6/10.........I confess I am still baffled, plus comparing it to DnD online then using it is a baseline to score this game, which you have not played, is it just me or is this logic a big bowl of noodles with a whole heap of WTF sauce.
    I don't know, wasn't too hard to discern that his comparison pointed out that the orcs all look very similar. Granted there are trolls for some added variation, but I get what he's saying. As for the world being nothing more than a imaginary backdrop, that also makes sense. I'm guessing he feels the game is not truly an open world but rather a multitude of large instances.

    So, this game is nothing like Skyrim or Witcher 3 with regards to an open world. However, in my opinion, that's not a reason for me to not like a game, but that is just my opinion. The fact 95% of the mobs all look the same is because of the setting / story. Again, not a reason I would fault the game.

    I agree with his score of 6/10 though but for the simple fact that single player games are using RNG loot boxes. I would rather pay $100 for a game if the developers claim they are doing it to cover increased costs. Using RNG loot boxes is a blatant show of greed and nothing more.

  • Which MMORPG has the best F2P model now ?

    kjempff said:
    I can't use the word good or best about f2p. For least intrusive I would say gw2, but that is technically not f2p but b2p with shop. For a pure f2p mmo I recommend.. not to support them.
    Actually, original GW2 or the core game as ArenaNet calls it, is free to download and play now, but expansions are still B2P.
