  • Can A:IR and Bless Revitalize the AAA MMORPG? - Bill Murphy - MMORPG.com

    Western devs are too greedy to invest into MMOs where the returns seem to be slow, while they could churn out mobile games and make bank instead. Or the EA/Bioware example: let's drop story entirely and focus on just making money from loot box infested multiplayer modes. Although I imagine they might be going back on that idea, given what happened.

    I hope future Asian games follow BDO's example, or improve on it when it comes to cash shops. It's far from perfect, and could definitely do with some tweaks, but it is better than most Eastern MMOs.

    They should just rework it a little and release it as a single player game, with MP options IMO.
  • The Crowd Funded MMO’s, What They Mean For The Genre


    The nature of Kickstarter is that it's a fairly risk free endeavor for the developer.  The Kickstarter funding does not seem to have dried up at all.  Just look at Ashes of Creation... 

    Even if a bunch of these Crowdfunded games fail.. all it takes is a great sounding concept and some slick marketing and you can nab hundreds of thousands of dollars... if not millions.

    The only thing that will jeopardize the Crowdfunding of games is if companies are actually held accountable for delivering on their promises.

    Until then... Crowdfunding MMOs is better than the lottery.  They used to say all it takes is a dollar and a dream to win the lottery.  With Crowdfunding the developer doesn't even need the dollar.  They use your dollar.
    Not sure I agree with risk free.
    If SC were to bomb entirely for example, I think the salt levels towards those devs would be high enough that it'd be hard as hell to do another successful crowdfunding. Or even get hired by a traditional company. Financially you're probably right to an extent, but reputation wise there's definitely a lot of risks imo.
  • Dude plays a game for >14,000 hours and doesn't recommend it. What game have you played the most?

    if we are talking about modern games for me it's probably GW2 or Warframe. For older games i don't even remember.

    And if Capcom supports Monster Hunter World in the long term then i suspect i will surpass those two games. I got 22 hours in and i cannot put it down. So much fun. And i'm not even counting how many hours i'll play with my PC friends when it launches on Steam. /bye real life.
    Haha, that's still the honeymoon phase though. I've had a few titles that were addictive as hell at first, and then a few weeks later the interest fades more and more until you just can't be arsed to touch it anymore.

    Wow, that's hands down one of the BEST 'adult' Tamers I've seen! And I know that class is damn hard to accomplish that on!

    The DK is gorgeous too :D
