Also not sure why people have a problem with players seeing the article on their forum or Reddit, and then coming to tell us why we should check it out....take it with a grain of salt if you will, but no harm in someone throwing in their two cents.
I'd rather hear from the one post people than the jerk here with 1k plus posts being a tool to everyone he talks to...so yeah...there is that.
Geez, people, lighten up. It's not like Bill said these were all MMORPGs, simply "MMOs".
I dunno...."M" (MASSIVE) "M" (MULTIPLAYER) "O" (ONLINE) all seem to fit each of these games. The definition of massive has changed. The days of 1000s of players sharing a single game are mostly gone and if you consider "servers" -- most of which host fewer than 500 players -- these games all fit.
The "new" MMO is 50+ to whatever number of players together in one place. People need to adapt with the times. Someday maybe the more "traditional" version of MMO will come back, but for now, times have changed. It's not 2007 any more.
Good write up. Reading through the article and comparing to a 1080ti I kept thinking, yeah but does anyone need that? In what world does that minuscule performance bump justify $500 price increase? Your con list nailed both of those.
Of course I'm running a GTX970. I wouldn't turn it away so, yeah.
It really sucks.. I like Star Wars but MORE importantly, it was couch-co-op. You know how rare that is anymore? Sucks. Maybe I'll buy it used somewhere a couple of months from now or something. (or not at all)
